Whilst many people find it easy to add content to their blogs, whether they personally write the posts or purchase the content elsewhere, when it comes to writing search engine friendly articles most blog writers seem to forget about their keywords.

These few steps will show you how to write a SEO friendly blog article.

Firstly, you need a list of long-tail keyword phrases that you will use to write your blog articles from. Start off by using the free keyword research tool provided by Google if you do not already have a list. Then your next step is to develop a list of phrases that are three words or longer to write your blog articles about.

Ensure that the title of your blog post contains your keyword phrase. Try and position it at the beginning of the title. Sometimes you may want the title of the blog article to be nothing more than the actual keyword phrase.

Again your keyword phrase should be included as close as possible to the beginning of the opening paragraph of the article. It is quite okay to also bold this keyword phrase to add additional emphasis to it as a benefit to the search engines as it helps them know what your blog article is about

You do not want to include your keyword phrase again in the body of the article. It is a better idea to use variations of it as they sound more natural when reading the article you are writing.

As an example, if your article was about working at home online, it makes sense that you would have something in there about marketing a business online. Bear in mind that search engines do not want to see your keyword phrase over and over. They would prefer to see an article that sounds natural and adds relevant content.

Include the keyword phrase that you have in the title and introductory paragraph in the closing paragraph. As some search engines spider from the bottom of the page up, go ahead and add additional emphasis by bolding your keyword phrase.

If blog articles provide useful content then they only need to be 250 words long. To maximize the use of your time, take longer articles and break them into separate blog articles.

A final step that you should take is to bookmark your blog posts using a submission service such as OnlyWire.com. Firstly, if you have not already done so, you will need to join the social directories that are part of the submission service.

I hope this article will help you understand how to write a SEO friendly blog article and that you will now benefit from higher rankings for your blog posts.
