Here is what a good quality, filled-out profile looks like.
Creating a Post
You can write a new post by clicking on the +New icon at the top of the dashboard, and selecting Post. Then, add a title and begin writing your post in the big text box.
Starting an Article
You can write a new post by clicking on the +New icon at the top of the dashboard, and selecting Post. Then, add a title and begin writing your post.
Don’t forget to write in full sentences in short paragraphs. Here are some more tips…
- Don’t add images to the body of your text
- Add something fun like a YouTube video to enhance your post where possible
- Remember to ask people to leave a comment or tweet @Fuzzable
When you think you’ve mastered your post, be sure to add a category (find it in the sidebar). You can only add ONE CATEGORY PER POST, so choose the most relevant one.
You’ll also need to add some tags (find the tag section in the sidebar). Tags are keywords that relate to your post. The more tags, the better.
Next, you’ll need to add a featured image. Find a good quality image from Google or elsewhere, and upload it by clicking ‘Add featured image’ and dragging it into the uploader.
Make sure your featured image is a press shot or comes from a reliable source. Most professional sources allow for images to be reused for information purposes. Do NOT use copyrighted imagery.
Finally, you need to make sure your new post is SEO-friendly. To do so, scroll down to ‘Yoast SEO’. Pick the main keyword that this post/page is about. If you wrote an article about Rihanna, your keyword is Rihanna. The keyword can be two words, i.e. Lady Gaga, One Direction, but don’t add big phrases.
Meta description: The meta description is often shown as the black text under the title in a search result. Add a description of your post (i.e. ‘Rihanna has dropped her brand new album ANTI.’). This description MUST include your focus keyword.
Your focus keyword must also appear in your article, the article title, the page URL, the content and the meta description.
Once your SEO counter says good and appears green, you’re done!
Submitting your Article
When you’re ready, you can submit your post for review by clicking the big blue button to the right of your new blog post. Then, an admin will check everything over and make sure it’s ready.
