Basic components of a blog post

Writing and posting new posts to your blog is the best way to increase the popularity of your blog and hence it will increase your earning potential. In this post, I am going to examine the basic components of a blog post.

Basic components of a blog post

The following are the basic elements of a great blog post. We’ll talk about how to optimize each for both readers and search engines.

Headline

The headline, or title, of your blog post, must be crafted to capture the attention of potential readers who may see it in their social media newsfeeds or in search results. Make sure you’ve found a great keyword that you can include on your headline.

Introduction

The first paragraph of your blog post will either keep people reading or make people leave. Make sure that it compels people to read the rest of your content.

For me, it is the part where I will tell the readers exactly what they are going to learn in the post so that they can make the decision to keep reading or leave the post.

Main content

This is the main portion of your blog post content. Think of the headline as the promise and the main content as the fulfillment of Use subheads to make your that promise. Your main content should fully satisfy anyone who posts scannable visits your post based on the headline.

If you create content that does not satisfy the promises of your headline, people will start to
identify your blog as unfulfilling and thus, stop visiting. The length of your blog posts can range from 300 to 3,000 or more words.

It’s best to alternate the length of your posts as you gain insight Write the perfect amount of
content about what works best for your audience.

Sub-headlines

Most people will scan your blog content as opposed to reading it word for word. Write subheads that break your content into digestible sections, and make sure those subheads represent the content within them. Use keywords Throughout Keep keyword density below 3%

Bolded text

Use bold text in a few areas of your main content to help highlight important points. Use it selectively, otherwise, your entire article will seem bolded, thus taking away the ability to highlight key portions of the content.

Bulleted/numbered lists — While you don’t want your entire post to be bulleted or numbered lists, these lists do help separate out steps and lists with useful content.
Place a call to action in your Media — Supplement the text portion of your content with
post media, such as relevant images and videos.

This will help break up your content and illustrate your points better. Images can also be used as part of the search optimization of your post—include your post’s main keyword phrase in the filename of the image as well as the ALT tag. Include social share buttons

Conclusion

The conclusion should be a paragraph or two at the end of your post to summarize what the reader should have gotten out of it. If they didn’t, chances are, they will go back to see what they might
Include links that have missed.

That is it, those are the basic components of a blog post, those components are the same that most of the big-time bloggers they use, adopt them on your blogging and your results will improve.
