How do you know if your blog posts are optimized for search engines?
Good question… and no easy answer… well, except for one which I’m going to share with you here! Here are a few options for optimizing your content for search marketing:
- Study Google and search engine optimization (time-consuming)
- Hire an SEO person to do some optimization for your web content (expensive)
- Become a subscriber to a service called Scribe Content Optimizer (easy, instant & affordable)
You write a blog post, you fill in the information on the SEO plug in, you click the Scribe analyze button, wait a few seconds and get a review of how well your content will do with search engines. You then get a list of things you can do to raise your search engine optimization score.
Okay, seeing is better than me telling you. Here’s a snapshot of a blog post that didn’t score well, and here’s one that got a perfect score. You can see for yourself that the Scribe report tells me what I can do to raise my score, to improve my search engine optimization.
For one thing, I’ve learned that sometimes I am not clearly identifying keywords in the title or beginning paragraph, and sometimes I don’t use enough hyperlinks. Also, sometimes I will use a keyword too often in a post. This makes search engines think that I’m keyword-stuffing.
The truth is, I simply don’t use enough alternative words and synonyms. By verifying with Scribe, I can tweak my post to make it more search engine friendly without destroying the quality of the content for readers.
Details? It costs me $27/month for the pro version and I can use it on my own blogs as well as my client blogs, the ones for whom I do ghost blogging. I can use it up to 300 times in one month, which is more than enough for my purposes.
