How Blogs Help You Rank Higher On SEO

The digital world is a big and noisy place where every business shouts, “Look at me!”

Even yours.

But simply putting up a website isn’t enough. You have to carve out your own space, build your niche, and attract an audience. There are many routes to get this recognition and curve out a piece of the digital word for yourself, and blogging is one of them. Blogs help define your niche and showcase your knowledge. Plus, blogs are SEO gold, and if you write them correctly they will speak both to your audience, and to the google algorithm.

Your Digital Footprint

Imagine the internet as a bustling city. Your content, whether it’s blog posts, videos, or images, acts as the markers you leave behind as you stroll through the streets. Every piece of content you produce is like planting a flag, saying, “I was here, and this is what I have to offer.” Now, when someone searches for a topic you’ve written about, your flag comes up on their map, guiding them to your domain.

And search engine optimization algorithms love these flags. Google’s main job is to provide users with the most relevant and high-quality information for their search queries. To do this, it uses an algorithm to sift through billions of websites and rank them. Google’s algorithm values fresh, relevant, and high-quality content. And this is where blogs come into play. By consistently publishing blogs around topics relevant to your niche, and including commonly searched keywords and questions in your blogs, you’re signaling to Google that you’re active, informed, and providing value.

Because let’s be real, how often do you venture past the first page of Google search results? If you’re like most people, it’s probably rare. That’s why ranking high is crucial. By securing a spot on that coveted first page, you significantly increase your chances of attracting organic traffic.

And organic traffic means building an audience, and your authority.

Showcase Your Knowledge

Information is everywhere on the internet, but genuine expertise? That’s a rare gem.

When you craft well-researched and insightful blog posts, you’re doing more than just sharing information; you’re showcasing your depth of knowledge. As you continue to share and educate, you’re cultivating a space where people know they can come for reliable insights. Over time, this consistent value delivery does wonders. It’s not just about getting clicks and likes. It’s about earning trust. When readers keep coming back, it’s a clear sign you’ve moved beyond recognition, you’ve built trust.

Think about that one website or blog you always end up on when you’re down the rabbit hole of a topic you love. It’s not an accident you keep landing there. They’ve probably become your go-to because, time and time again, they’ve delivered the goods. Their content resonates, informs, and maybe even entertains. You trust them, and that’s why they’re a staple in your search results.

And blogs can help you become a staple for your target audience.

Craft and Schedule Content

When crafting a blog, your first aim should be understanding and addressing the pain points of your audience. Dive deep into their challenges, fears, and aspirations. Tools like forums, Q&A websites, and even social media can be gold mines for gleaning these insights. Once you’ve identified a core problem, approach it with empathy in your content. Use relatable anecdotes, data-backed solutions, and actionable advice to provide genuine value. Remember, content that truly resonates with readers is more likely to be shared, further amplifying its reach.

And when trying to write a blog that is SEO optimized, start by identifying relevant keywords related to the problem you’re addressing. Use tools like Google’s Keyword Planner, SEMrush, or Ahrefs to find keywords with a good balance of search volume and competition. Once you’ve chosen your keywords, integrate them organically into your title, meta description, and throughout the content. However, avoid “keyword stuffing.” Search algorithms are sophisticated and prioritize content that reads naturally.

Lastly remember, SEO algorithms solve consistency, so you need to pick a posting frequency and stick to it. I do this by creating a content calendar at least three months in advance where I brainstorm all the topics I’ll write about for the next three months. And you can use the power of ChatGPT to help you brainstorm these topics to speed up this planning process.

Here are some quick steps which will leave you with several blog post ideas:

  1. Identify Your Audience’s Problems: Make a list of the top 10 problems or questions your target audience might have related to your niche. You can search google, do competitor research, and also take into account what questions people have asked you when considering your product or service.
  2. Brainstorm with ChatGPT: Use prompts like, “ChatGPT, can you provide 10 blog topics related to [specific problem]?” or “ChatGPT, what are 5 unique angles on [topic] that haven’t been explored much?” Pick the ones that will most interest you and resonate with your audience.
  3. Plan the Schedule: Decide on a frequency that’s sustainable for you, whether it’s once a week or twice a month. Allocate topics from your brainstorming session to specific dates. Remember consistency is key for SEO so pick a frequency you can continually keep up.
  4. Writing: When writing these blogs, write them authentically, as if you were speaking to a customer face to face. Remember to use simple language and not industry jargon. Your post needs to be something everyone can understand, even with no context, and should resonate with your unique voice. If you need help crafting your voice, check out this blog!
