How to Craft an Outstanding Guest Post

by Jon Westenberg

You aren’t just competing with me.

4 ways to optimize your blog posts after hitting ‘publish’

4 ways to optimize your blog posts after hitting ‘publish’

by Robert Katai

Content marketers often focus on creating content: new blog posts, new videos, new reports. But what about the old articles, the evergreen content, that is driving new comments, new shares and traffic every week?

I believe we should give it more power, optimizing it to make it stronger.

Before I knew how to optimize blog posts, I just wrote articles I assumed my audience would read. I looked at what the competition was doing and just kept publishing post after post.

When my colleague introduced me to optimization, though, I started improving my older posts. I read a lot about SEO and content marketing techniques, adapted them and used them on my articles.

According to the Content Marketing Institute, 200 million people use ad blockers; and, content marketing not only costs 62 percent less than outbound marketing, it yields three times as many leads.

This is one of the lessons that led me to find examples of this practice — which yields powerful results.
