How to Format Your Blog Post for Search
Please note: This DOES NOT guarantee you will get found on page #1 of Google searches, but it will get you optimized for more web traffic overall.
Benefits of Blogging in The Mind Body Spirit Network:
- Your blog post gets automatically emailed to our growing list of blog subscribers (this is different than an email subscriber). Currently our subscriber base is at 100.
- Your Blog post gets automatically posted in some of our social media accounts including Facebook (6,800), Twitter (185), LinkedIn (2,585), LinkedIn Company(45), Google+ (121)
- Your post is far more likely to get found, within the context of a niche community like this, due to the nature of this type of community and how search and Google works, and due to the extensive SEO work that I do in the background (linking, cross linking, building relevancy) that serves the whole community.
- An individual website owner*, without SEO expertise, typically can’t compete for search ranking on their own. This is one major reason why I created this network.
*I have been developing and hosting websites for small business owners since 2009. The average website traffic for small business clients is 200 visits a month. The high is 500 and the low is 63 visits a month. Most clients do nothing to promote their businesses online. TMBSN currently averages 3500 visits a month.
Need Some Help with Your Blogging Efforts?
Here’s Some Add-On Services You Can Order!
Simple Blog Add on, More Exposure:
- I create a Featured Image for You with a Catchy Title and
- I publish your article to our Home Page, Mind Body Buzz Page, and I place your blog in 3 other relevant categories (this is a search strategy).
- You have access to the Featured Image I create plus, when your blog post is shared in social media, you have an image to grab people’s attention
If you feel you have a really strong blog that will generate interest and leads I would recommend “beefing it up!” with one or some of the following:
Blog Social Media Image Package:
3 images in 2 formats each (you choose) Square for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram), Rectangle for Facebook & Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tall Rectangle for Pinterest.
That’s a Total of 6 Images for your use in your Social Media Efforts.
You will have access to all images to use for your own efforts.
Blog Social Media Posting Package:
I will write the SEO*, #Hashtag and marketing driven copy for your post and share your post all over TMBSN’s social media counts over the course of 3 weeks!
- Pinterest (20,000+ views/month and growing quickly) You will be placed in on 3 different boards per pin. That’s a total of 18 SEO relevant pins/posts.
- Facebook (6,800)
- Instagram (180 and growing)
- Twitter (185 and growing)
- LinkedIn Page (45)
- Google+ (125+)
- LinkedIn Profile Page (2,800+) but only if appropriate and relevant for this audience.
That’s a Total of 18 Pinterest positions and 15-18 more posts in the other networks.
*SEO driven posts on Pinterest and Instagram have a longer shelf life, and in fact, Pinterest posts can be found on page #1 Google searches even ahead of the blog link in TMBSN. Pinterest posts can grow over time, which is what I am experiencing right now.
(includes the cost of the images package)
Add a Lead Generation Box to your blog post
It doesn’t make sense to write a really compelling blog post and then leave readers high and dry!
Give them something more to continue connecting with you.
I will add a lead generation box to your blog post.
The Works including SEO!
If you have a really solid blog post that’s a real winner, then it may be worth promoting and optimizing for search and lead generation.
In addition to all of the above, I will SEO optimize your blog
*Consider this….the average cost of a 1/4 page ad in a local newspaper runs $400. It’s Russian Roulette for your money! 1 Shot-1 Day and it’s over! And even worse is the fact that it runs in front of a HIGHLY general (untargeted audience).
Your SEO optimized and promoted blog lives indefinitely in TMBSN (as long as you are a member)
