Produce content rich articles with images, videos, graphs, and polls to engage your readers throughout their experience. Pay attention to your grammar and sentence structure and also try to avoid lexical errors as much as possible.

Optimize your posts for search engines

Strategically place keywords in your articles without stuffing them as this waters down your article. Don't opt for a free hosting platform since it doesn't do any good to your search engine rankings, use a paid hosting package.
