Writing blog posts aren't hard. Follow these tactics and you can write an amazing blog post, fast. Subscribe here to learn more of my secret SEO tips: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=neilvkpatel Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/neilkpatel/ Read more on my blog: https://neilpatel.com/blog/ Step #1: Take your time writing your first few blog posts - this will help you figure out what your readers like, your writing style, and the overall flow. Once you figure out your style you can templatize your blog posts. For example, mine are introduction, body, and conclusion. You also want to use headings, headings will make your content easier to read and skim. Within your headings, add keywords. Step #2: Add images - using services like Fotolia you can add images to every one of your blog posts. By adding images it makes your content easier to understand as some people are visual learners. Step #3: Set some rules - by following these rules it will make it easier to write blog posts faster. Make sure you use the words "you" and "I" within your blog. Add 7 or so images per post and keep your paragraphs shorter than 5 or 6 lines.

David A (4 months ago)
Neil, are you talking shorter post or do you get 2000 words out in 2 hours? Seems like an awful lot but I'm sure doable with practice.
Neil Patel (4 months ago)
I can write 2,000-word posts in 2 hours, no sweat. But I have been doing this for 10+ years. Practice definitely makes a difference when it comes to finding your rhythm.

Hi Neil. Do blogs that we write about our overall subject (mine is helping small business get digital leads that convert to customers) BUT never get into the top 100 on google help our overall cause for Google to understand what we do? For example, I have a blog I wrote on PPC advertising that is supposedly ranking number 3 in Australia but another on the same topic that is outside the top 100. Does that second one help or should I rewrite it?

Neil... I’ve been binge listening for 7 days. I am very interested in starting a blog for women related to leadership skills that will make their career more rewarding. I’ve used google analytics to try to identify how much interest is out there now, and I’m not finding much. What are your recommendations to move forward with creating great content in this space.
Rhonda Garrett (8 months ago)
Thank you
Neil Patel (8 months ago)
Join groups on social channels and pay attention to the conversations. This way you will get a goldmine of ideas and can produce content that will engage your target market.
James Navarro (9 months ago)
I disagree, I feel a epic piece of content takes more than 2 hours
Priyanka Vishant (16 days ago)
i agree with your point of view.
Neil Patel (9 months ago)
It's different for everyone, James. Some people write faster, some people outline and do lots of research before they start writing. Others write more slowly or let the piece evolve as they write. It all depends :-)

I heard we can sell stock photos to adobe. Does this go to photalia ? Sorry for any spelling errors
shweta MG (11 months ago)
Neil Patel your ways and voice are very reassuring:) it’s concise and direct . I’m a new comer and have just bought a domain. It’s centered toward wellbeing . I’m being broad . In your opinion who do you feel is the best hosting platform?
Neil Patel (11 months ago)
I think Adobe has licensing agreements with several of the stock photo sites, but I'm not for certain. You can sell to Adobe, Getty, and several other companies.

I'm stuck at very basic question... Q. I want to increase my Google Ranking and the question is what should I do out of this two options... A. Should I create my own domainname.com/blog and post there or B. I use Medium.com for blogging?
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
I've seen that some publications use a custom domain, but visitors still know that they're on the Medium platform. The Medium logo appears at the top of the screen. You can see an example here: https://humansandresources.com/
FocusSoftnet NZ (1 year ago)
I'm impressed with your response time. Do we have a option like blog.domainname.com in Medium? so that my visitors doesn't know that they are actually on Medium :-). Can you share few of your links related to current situation !
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Why not do both? You can build an audience on Medium while you build page rank on your own domain.
Really, that's a very nice video content. I hope this video help to beginner. Thanks Neil
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
It should. Let me know how the tips work out for you.
Robert Woodman (1 year ago)
I blog for a manufacturer of specialty chemicals. It is hard to write blog posts about the products we make and much harder still to get people to read them.
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Try doing brainstorming sessions with your peers. I bet you can come up with stuff.
mirmamun (1 year ago)
Neil sir thanks a lot for awesome tutorial.
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Glad you found it useful. :)
Abhijeet Singh (1 year ago)
Hi Neil, kindly reply to this one -- You do suggest to use LSI keywords as well in the article and at the same time you suggest the longer the better ( word limit of an article ). I started to write an article and my title was How to ......!! Now, when I focused on LSI keywords 98% were starting from how to....and finally I realized when I was adding those in my article there where a lot of How to how to words which were repeating. What to do now?
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Go back and fix it. Don't stuff keywords, make it sound natural.
nice video Neil, How many words blog should contain?
Thankyou neil
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Just follow the ones in the video. They are flexible... you can choose what works for you.
can u please tell the rules to write a blog
Thank you Neil.
Jean-Yves Hemlin (1 year ago)
Question for you, sir. How do you pick your images? I write blog on programming and feel weird putting a kitten or a coffee mug photo to illustrate a blog. Should I illustrate the client's problem, my solution or simply put kittens on the blog because everyone loves kitten? There are only so many generic handshake or business meeting pictures you can put on one's blog!
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
I search for relevant images and then pick the best one. It takes time and you have to use multiple image sites to find the right one. I usually use Fotolia.
Hownetinfo (1 year ago)
Sir Can I Use only one image of your site in my article I give the Reference of neilpatep .com Only one image plz give me permission sir
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
If it is my image, then sure
Hownetinfo (1 year ago)
Neil Patel No sir It's Your image Your site image I want to add my site if you agri say yes plz
Neil Patel (1 year ago)
Assuming it is my image, use away. If it is someone else's you will have to get their permission.
