3. Do Much Research
Research is fundamental before writing a good article. If you write even a 2000 words article and do not have any correct information in it, how will it be helpful to visitors?

Put The Keywords In Your Writing
After Finding Your Keyword. You need to put that keyword into work in your next step. Your keyword must be used in the correct format.

And make sure you include your focus keyword in:
- First paragraph
- URL of your post
- In the Title of the post
- SEO Meta Description
- In Image ALT Text
You can use a WordPress SEO plugin like RankMath SEO or Yoast SEO. It will help you to write an SEO-Optimized post.
Write About Something People Care About
As per some of the SERPs reports, A page having detailed information ranks higher on Google. You should have articles on an average about 1500 to 2000 words.
But this often doesn’t mean that you will unnecessarily write a long post with unusual words or sentences instead write only what people really want.
Tag For Heading And For Sub-Heading
Do a proper use of HTML heading tags, that is <h1>, <h2>, <h3> and so on. Search Engines like Google, are also designed in HTML language.
Thus a proper set-up of HTML on your website will help Search Engines to understand your content in a better way.
<h1> tag is used for the title. (It is set as by default when you enter your title). <h2> tag is used for subheading and similarly <h3>, <h4> and so on, are used for further subheadings.
Make it long enough to count
As described in it much time above that, your article should be long and detailed enough to be different and more knowledgeable than others.
You are making a long and detailed article.
You are providing a unique and different material than your competitors, through which search engines will trust you more and rank you higher.
Try to cover the complete information about the topic you are writing.
Tools or Applications To Use For Guest Blogging
Some of the tools which are essential for writing Guest Post (or even your regular post) are as follows –
Keyword Research Tool
An article would be evidence of any topic or to say a keyword.
A right and high volume keyword must be your goal, which would make you profitable.
Thus, a keyword research tool is essential for you to find a profitable keyword.
I use SEMrush for keyword research and for finding the profitable topics to write on.
It’s easy to use interface makes keyword research easy, and you can easily find less competitive keywords with high traffic using its advance filters.
If you know how to write a complete SEO optimized article, but your language and grammar are inferior.

Copyright Free Images
Algorithms of Search Engines support the article, which is unique.
Copying a few sentences or even some images from different sites to yours will make your essay Plagiarized.

Thus, you must write your content in your own words, and you should use copyright-free images (from some websites like- Pixabay) to make yourself 100% unique.
Keyword Density Checker
An article must have keywords in it. That is, you must use your primary keyword for your writing.

It would help if you used this particular keyword on your content multiple times.
A proper keyword density or the repetition of your primary keyword must be within 1.5% to 4% of your total word count.
For example, your keyword is the same as “Best i7 Laptops under 60000 in India”. You had written an article of 1000 words.
Then your main keyword, i.e., “Best i7 Laptops under 60000 in India,” should only be repeated 1.5% to 4% or to say, 15 to 40 times.
You can use WordPress SEO plugins like RankMath SEO or Yoast SEO; it also helps in maintaining a good Keyword Density score.
