Here’s the rules of SEO that every blogger needs to know.
Don’t overuse keywords
Table of Contents
Keywords are essential to bringing in readers, but over stuffing your posts with them isn’t the way forward. In fact, Google will penalize you for doing so. Instead, insert them naturally where the text allows you, and you’ll get far.
A site that’s always updating is seen as ‘more valuable’ by search algorithms. This is because it’s an active site, and so will be more valuable to the reader. Make sure you keep updating regularly to maintain interest.
Keep pages to a minimum
You might think it’s a good idea to keep creating new pages for new products or ideas, but eventually, the algorithm will give up as you have too many pages. Stick to just a few pages, or one if you can. It’s much easier for you to be found this way.
Create unique contents
PR Manager Regina B. Perez from Best Australian Writers says ‘Your content need to be unique to bring readers in. They need to see that you’re writing content that they can use, so they’ll keep coming back.’ The better, more unique content you write, the more that readers will keep coming back.

Check your website functionality
The functionality behind your website is vital, especially in a more impatient and mobile world. You need to know that your blog is loading quickly, as if it isn’t, readers will disappear elsewhere. Most hosting sites have useful tools you can use to check this, so make sure you do it regularly.
Every page should have a unique title
Every post you make should have a unique title, something that tells the reader what they should expect when they click through to read more. Ensure that your headlines are accurate, and relevant to the body of the post.

Proofread your content
Good content is well proofread and edited before it ever goes live. If you’re putting out work that’s sloppy, you’re much less likely to get noticed online. Never publish without proofreading first.
