Take a look at my on-page SEO checklist and you’ll see that there are many factors that can influence search engine optimization.
SEO friendly tools can reduce the time that it takes to ensure that you’re doing the right things to improve your blog’s SEO. Some of the key factors to take into consideration are: targeting the right keywords; how many words are in your blog post; the actual contents of your posts; the spelling, punctuation, and grammar within the posts; and so many other different variables that monitoring your SEO is a continual process of improvement.
How to write SEO friendly posts?
The easiest way that you can write SEO friendly posts is with the aid of an SEO plug-in. I highly recommend Rank Math SEO or you could use another popular SEO plug-in called Yoast SEO. To write SEO friendly posts please read my post called Cheat-sheet Search Engine Optimization Tutorial for Rank Math.
It’s a cheat-sheet search engine optimization tutorial for Rank Math. This post was initially written for bloggers that are using the Yoast SEO plug-in. But since I’ve updated to using Rank Math SEO as my primary means for improving my SEO I’ve decided to write a new post that is suited for users of Rank Math SEO. I hope that you find this to be the best SEO tutorial for beginners.
What are SEO friendly keywords?
In a nutshell, SEO friendly keywords are the keywords that are more likely to bring you traffic. Before I started using professional keyword research programs I was winging my keywords. When I started getting serious about SEO with using Holisitic SEO I sadly discovered that many of my posts main keywords had zero volume. I’ve optimized my posts for their keywords and the result of that is that my traffic has tripled from nearly 20 pageviews per day to an average of 60 pageviews per day.
In addition to knowing the volume for a particular keyword you should also be familiar with the Site Difficulty of the post as to how hard it might be able to rank. The Site Difficulty on Ubersuggest is abbreviated as SD. Keysearch simply refers to the Site Difficulty as Score.

How can I make my blog posts SEO friendly?
To make your posts SEO friendly you should focus on the placement of your keywords so that they’re strategically placed yet appear to look as is they’re natural used within the context.
Pro-Tip: A good rule of thumb pertaining to keywords is don’t exceed 20 keywords per post. Writing a post with too many keywords or instances of the main keyword can lead to a Google penalty for the overuse of keywords commonly referred to as keyword stuffing. So don’t fill your post with needless words.
It may not only decrease your chances to get ranked high, it can also adversely affect your domain authority score.
