1. Avoid passive voice. Maximum 10%.
2. Build a keyphrase representative (4 words maximum) and repeat it 3-5 times in the article.
Optimizing posts and pages with a keyphrase makes it easier for people to find content. The keyphrase is the phrase that you want your post or page to be found for in search engines. Sometimes, it is a single word, but it usually consists of a few words. For example, if you want your blog post to rank for ‘workplace innovation’, then optimize your post for that term. Your focus keyphrase can also be longer. For instance, you could write an article about workplace innovation specifically for SMEs and optimize for ‘workplace innovation for SMEs’. Or a post about workplace innovation and how design thinking applies and optimize for ‘design thinking for workplace innovation’.
3. Start writing with your keyphrase in the first paragraph.
4. At least 1 external link, 2 or 3 would be great.
5. Senteces should contains transition words.
Using transition words in your text can help you enhance the readability of the post. Transition words are words like ‘and’, ‘but’, ‘so’ and ‘because’. They show the reader the relationship between phrases, sentences, or even paragraphs. When you use them, you make it easier for your readers to understand how your thoughts and ideas are connected. Transition words can be divided into several categories, based on the type of transition you want to make.
