Publishing an article without following this checklist is a big mistake. Not taking the time to review and improve your content can lead to a significant decrease in traffic. We were discussing this, and I was asked what kind of increase in traffic could be achieved by following this checklist. If your article doesn’t appear on the first page of search results, following this checklist can help you move to the number one position. You could go from receiving five page views a month to a thousand page views a month. It’s crucial to ensure that your content is top-notch, and the following tips will help you achieve this.
We have incorporated this checklist into our blogging system, so you can access it easily. There’s a lesson dedicated to leveling up your content, so be sure to check it out. This checklist is so valuable that it’s worth printing out and keeping it close to your computer or on your desk for reference.
Here are three things you need to do when reviewing your content:
- Fact-check any claims made in the article. If you’re writing about a niche you’re familiar with, make sure the information you provide is accurate based on your experience or research. If you outsource the content, review any claims made to ensure they’re accurate. Do a quick research check if anything raises any red flags.
- Answer targets are short and easy-to-read pieces of information that you place at the top of the article. Review and Wordsmith the answer target to make sure it sounds perfect is formatted correctly and provides the necessary information. This is crucial for winning Google snippets and making your content helpful, which is important to Google.
- Do a quick spelling and grammar check. Major errors in spelling and grammar can negatively impact your search engine ranking and put off readers. Use the free Grammarly Chrome extension to help you spot any errors.
- Use images in your blog post. Original images are highly valuable, but if you don’t have any, use a relevant stock image. Make sure the image matches the content you’re discussing at that point in the article. Don’t use an image that’s tangentially related, as it takes away from the value of the content.
- Review all your subheadings in the article to make sure they’re formatted and written as headlines (60 characters or less). This helps Google use the subheadings as headlines in search results. The subheadings should be catchy and stand-alone, so readers don’t need the context of what came before it to understand what it means.
- Add relevant affiliate links to your article and sell those links. Tell readers why they should check out a product, how it’s relevant, and why you like it. If you’re running display ads on your website, format your article to accommodate display ads by keeping paragraphs short and providing plenty of space for ad placements.
- Interlink your articles. When you plan your articles, group them together in your search analysis. This makes it easier to interlink your articles and add links to any new articles when they’re published. Interlinking helps build topical authority and traffic and quickly gets your brand-new blog post indexed.
In conclusion, follow this checklist to make your content top-notch and increase your traffic. Don’t skip a single item on the list!
