Guidelines to create Quality content on your Blog

Blog posting guidelines
If you follow my guideline in writing posts, then I am sure that you will definitely notice a good progress. My guidelines involve the improvement of site performance, page rank on search engines, image optimization and content of post.

Post Title or Article Title: Title should be descriptive, accurate and unique and it should point the topic or central idea of particular post. It is better to express title in 5 to 10 words. Don't create titles for search engines i.e. filling title block with keyword not related to content.

Post content or Body of the post: It elaborates the theme of article in detail, so write introduction to concept of your post at the beginning and describe in your own words. You should educate visitors on your concepts by defining the concepts or keys of the article and give examples. It experience good for readers. If you add an image, then it looks perfect and gives good impression. Provide relevant description. Avoid copying content from other internet source. It does not add values to your post. Search engines detect your content as duplicate and never result your site well so make a habit of writing post in your own words. Make sure that your pages have no grammatical mistakes.

It is important to note that topic should be fresh, useful, live and information-rich and then only your site gets popular, earns backlinks and brings more traffic. Post articles on your site at least twice or thrice a week. Avoid placing unnecessary codes and scripts on your page.

Image search optimization:
  • File name should be informative and related to image. Suggested file names are like blogger_logo.jpg, but not IMG0058.JPG.
  • Make use of alt attribute to provide a small description of image.
  • Provide Good quality photos and compress their size.
  • Specify a width and height for all images in their code.
