While making a website, a question arose about how to write an article. So, We are going to learn how can we write a SEO optimized article below;

Writing an article

So, beautiful people! To write an article you need an idea or a topic to give your views and opinions upon that specific idea or topic. 

An article is a collection of opinions and views of a writer to a specific topic. 

You don’t have to copy someone else’s content and paste it on your website. It is not the right way to do so. Lets learn how you can write your own content for free without hiring or paying anyone.

First of all, we need a topic. That can be about everything you want to write. But make sure when you pick a topic you have to provide authentic information. So that no one could challenge your content. 

Now start writing about that topic.

Divide your topic into four subcategories. 

1. POST INTRO 

(Introducing the main point of the article & defining the main objective)

In the first category you have to provide an intro that your topic is related to. Describe a problem that you are going to solve in that post.

2. SUBHEADINGS 

(To make clear your point to readers and include some fascinating points about topic)

In the second category explain your topic with more information and write sources and types if your topic covers them. Use subheadings to distribute your article in short paragraphs, it helps the reader to understand the topic easily.

3. REFERENCES

(Link Article to the Main Source)

In the third category provide some references, sources, concepts and universal truths about your topic and end your article. 

4. OUTRO/CONCLUSION 

(A paragraph that makes all points come together)

In the last add overall conclusion that what a reader gets as a result after reading your article. 

Some Important questions arose while writing an article or a blog post.

Q.1 How much length should a blog post have?

Ans: 

       It depends upon the topic you choose, And how many competitors you are facing. You have to write more than your competitors such as, 200 hundred words more than your competitor.  If you want a number, I will recommend writing at least 1000 words on every post.

Q.2 How to find the best topic for an article?

Ans:

       If you are stuck while finding the best topic for a blog post. To find the best topic for an article, you need to get a popular book that is related to your blog niche. Look at its table of content page. Make a list of all topics discussed in the book. Now, make a list of important topics/terms you see there. Write articles on those terms. 

Q.3 How to get copyright free images for an article ?

Ans:

       It is important to use copyright free images for your blog. To find out free copyright images for free there are many tools you can use such as Freepik, Pexels and Unsplash. Also you can use google images but you have to use search filters in usage right “Labeled for reuse”. That’s it, now you can use those images in your blog.

Q.4 What are external links & internal links? How to add in an article?

Ans: 

       To get ranked in google (SEO), adding external & internal links helps in search engine optimization. Adding any reference link in your article is called an external link. And adding your own blog link in any article is called internal linking. 

Q.5 How to spell correctly in an article?

Ans: 

       When you write in MS office it just shows you that you wrote wrong spellings by underlining that word. But I personally use GOOGLE DOCS, It is really amazing. It automatically correct the spellings & also checks and corrects grammar.
