Anybody here hates writing posts with SEO in mind as much as I do? If you’re a blogger, you know what I’m talking about.
It’s the most unnatural way of writing. Who would pose their own questions as subheadings and then proceed to give the answers to themselves? It sounds ridiculous if you ask me. Yet I do this, too. Because supposedly, people say this is one of the good SEO practices you must follow as a blogger. Who are these people saying this? Supposedly, they’re people in the know.
Whenever I write my posts in this way, though, it feels disjointed to me. And unnatural, and inorganic. I want my writing to reflect who I am, not who algorithm bots can recognize.
I must confess, however, after publishing 10 posts written in this manner in a span of 2 months, I have more than doubled my page views. So the experiment has in fact succeeded. Yeah, I forgot to tell you that I’ve been experimenting. I’m also in the midst of looking to see how to increase my presence on Pinterest. So far, by following some of the suggested practices, I have almost quadrupled my Pinterest monthly views!
Speaking of Pinterest, if you want to be added to the Fiesta Friday Friends Group Board, just let me know. I’ll send you an invite.
In the meantime, let me continue to experiment. I’m sure I’ll be sharing my findings with you.
It’s now time to party!
First, Take a Look at These:
“I haven’t heard of this cake before, but it looks so gorgeous and sounds so good I actually hoped I could take a slice from my screen. And a traditional recipe and a gluten-free, too? Fantastic!” — Jhuls
“I second Jhuls on this one. Such a gorgeous cake with an interesting backstory.” — Angie
“I love anything roasted potatoes. This one’s so easy to make, but I love the salt & vinegar flavor. You can never go wrong with an easy, but delicious recipe like this.” — Jhuls
“Wow, Jhuls, you’re on point again. This Salt & Vinegar Roasted Potatoes ticks all the right boxes for me.” — Angie
“Oh gosh, this looks so good! I’m in trouble now… but maybe not too much trouble since it’s a low-carb, guilt-free version of Loaded Potato Casserole.” — Angie
“We LOVE chicken and dumplings! And this version is even easier to make, using readymade gnocchi. What a great idea!” — Angie
