IMPORTANT BLOG FEATURES
NEW! BLOG POST CHECKLIST
KEYWORD TRACKER – Dropbox Paper Document
At your request, I have added a PRE-PUBLISH CHECKLIST to every single post. You will find this in the right hand side bar OR under the Yoast section when you add a new post. This is just a general guide to help you complete the items to best optimize the blog post!
You will get a pop-up warning when you schedule to make sure you double check the list. This is at your own discretion — but truly hope it’s helpful too!
All blog posts should have a square featured image. Ideally, this image is about 800x800px and less than 150 kb (a medium resolution JPG typically does the trick). Please be sure to add an “alt tag” the describes the photo.
EXAMPLE SQUARE FEATURED IMAGE
EXAMPLE “alt text” – DAY TRIPPING
To optimize for SEO, use the keyword phrase as the photos “alt text”.
To break up your text – use headings — we encourage H2-H6 (no H1’s!) throughout the text when adding headings, sub-headings, articles with lists, etc.
To optimize for SEO, you will want to use your keyword phrase in the heading tags, as possible.
Our favorite image site is Unsplash.com – here you can find royalty free images that don’t need author credit. You can also add your own images. Size all images to be 800px wide and display at full width/centered. Images larger than this can take a lot of hosting to load which will slow our website down.
References and Link Backs
Siting sources and linking back to other articles is an important part of building Google SEO on our website. When you quote content or borrow an idea from someone else, be sure to add a reference link.
Ensure that all links open in a new tab. To do this, just click on the link you just created and toggle to the right to select “OPEN IN A NEW TAB“:
Blog Post: Yoast SEO Settings
Below the post is the YOAST SEO SETTINGS. This section should be completed for each post.
SEO TITLE: Once you determine a keyword phrase and use that phrase to title your article, this title will automatically populate. Sometimes I add a few extra words to help describe the post. This is seen in Google search, not on the top of the single post.
SLUG: This too is automatically populated based on the article’s title – which should be the same as the keyword phrase. See below.
META DESCRIPTION: Use the keyword phrase as the first few words of this description and then add a sentence to support the article.
