Nigerian bloggers are always fast in clicking on the publish button without checking whether all things are in the right place. I’m used to this, but i decided to change as I saw he bad effects of it. Whenever after writing and releasing an article, it is always right to check all the necessary things before you let google index it.
Some of the things are:
a. Making sure that your images have the right alt tag.
b. Ensuring that the title contains the proper and right keyword.
c. Ensuring the heading tags used in the articles are well organised and have the correct keywords in them.
d. Checking the paragraphs to see if the right keywords are there.
e. Editing the necessary things that may affect your ranking.
f. adding the right tags and categories for proper indexing.
Those are just but a few things that I know I do before i press the publish buttons. When after you must have down the above things, take note of your Yoast SEO plugin, the indicator must change to GREEN.
Let me stop there and go into what i have for you today.
