Things To Do After Writing Your Post

As a blogger you always spend your time in creating content for your blog but do you give time on other things which are as important as the content creation? If yes then its good but if you don’t then start doing it from today.

Lets discuss what are those things which you need to do after finishing your article:-

Proofread your Post: Most of the newbie bloggers have the habit to publish the article just after completing it. But this leads to many spelling and other silly mistakes left in the post.

Its always good to proofread your post after completing it. In fact don’t proofread the post just after completing. Close your laptop and  do some offline work. Come back after sometime and then start reading your own written post. You will be able to point out so many mistakes.

Check it for plagiarism: This might sound funny to you, right? Because I am telling you to check your own written post for plagiarism.

But wait!

I have a solid reason for it, It might be possible that you have written few paragraphs that may match with other blogger’s post. It might be possible because there are so many writers who write on the daily basis and out of them few have similar writing and thinking style as you have. This can lead to unintentional plagiarism, but Google doesn’t know whether it is is intentional or not.

So it’s better to check for the same in Google to stand on a safer side. If you find anything similar then you may edit it before posting.

Make the keywords bolder: for better SEO practices make the main keywords bolder in the post and also use heading the heading tags properly.

Choose a Title: Most of the blogger write the title before writing the article but there are few other bloggers out there who decide the Title after writing. So if you are one of them then think for a title which is suitable for your post. Try to make it short because Google indexes only 60 characters (with spaces) of Title of a post.

Make permalink link for the post: After completing the above steps draft the post in your blog’s dashboard. Now If you are blogging on wordpress then you can see the permalink option just below the title. It takes the whole title in permalink by default so you need to edit it to make it short and simple.

 For example:-

If your title is ” How to Grow Your Blog Readership Immensely”

Then what should be your url:-

Domain.com/grow-blog-readership/
Or
domain.com/grow-your-blog-readership/
Or
Domain.com/blog-readership/ 

These look short and simple. Even keeping urls short is good from Search engines point of view too.

Internal Linking: At the time of writing you might have used few words, phrases or keywords that can be linked to some of your old posts. So don’t wait and start linking keywords to the relevant posts. It helps you engage readers on your blog for longer duration,

Image Search: Find a royalty free image for your blog post from Internet. You may use Google, flickr etc. save the image with relevant name such as seo.jpg or something like this. Don’t just give a name like 1.jpg , asd.jpg etc.
Checklist for a post 

Upload the image in your post and write proper alt text for the image which make it searchable in Google and other search engines

Now after these all there are few small things like category selection, adding tags(keywords) etc. Just do that and then check the post’s preview and if it is looking fine then Hit the publish button. Now the Promotion work starts.

Now do these tasks seriously:-

Share on Fan page: you must be having a fan page or brand page for your blog on FB and G+. Yes? Then share the link of the post there to let your audience know about it. Try to get as many likes and pluses on your posts. Ask your fellow bloggers to give more and more pluses and likes.

Share in FB groups: There are many groups on FB where you can share your post urls. Just share everywhere.

Share on popular social media Sites: Share the post link on leading social media sites like twitter, FB, G+, linkedIn, Pinterest, reddit, stumbleupon etc.

Comment on relevant blogs: Start commenting on other’s blogs and leave the post link there in Commentluv because it allows you to leave your recent post’s link on the blog.

Ask other bloggers to mention your post:  If you really think that your blog post is a masterpiece then you may go and ask other bloggers to mention this in their next blog post as a reference. If a good blogger mentions your post on his/her blog then you will be getting lots of visitors from there. If you need help from experts to get your blog post written from scratch, then you should try some online content writing services!

Thats all from my side. If you have anything which you think we should do after writing the post then please share your own views via comment form.

    You covered almost all the necessary things before publishing a post. Sometimes we publish post in hurry but it sucks. Good post anyway.

    Great tips about proof reading your work -several- times. It’s amazing the mistakes that can be found after just taking twenty minutes away. I think it’s easy for your eyes/mind to automatically gloss over certain errors. Also a great trip about checking your own work for plagiarism. This is especially true if you happen to read a lot (of articles, posts, etc.) – it’s easy to unconsciously absorb information without realizing the source. It’s a tricky thing. Great post!

    Why should you check your post for plagiarism? I’m assuming that if you’ve managed to do a nicely researched post then you will have come across other sources instead of ripped them off. Surely, no one whose ever used computers has fallen into accidental plagiarism, have they?

    This post is truly helpful. Many of us will be taken aback about checking our posts for plagiarism but it is better we do. This will save us from being black listed from any such efforts though we must have done it unknowingly. The words, phrases and thoughts of many people are alike on this earth.

    I totally agreed with Yogendra that you have covered all the important and vital tips before and after writing and publishing a post respectively. It is also true that a silly mistake can ruin your aim of writing a post. So every writer should strictly follow the above mentioned tips.

    Well it isn’t usually necessary to check for plagiarism. Search engine crawlers won’t be hard on us for a few similarities. But I do agree with the proofreading part. Excess of proofreading might make us lose confidence, but reading it twice should be quite enough before publishing it. And tapping the potential of social media is bound to benefit us hugely. Thanks for sharing!

    Great tips Atish!

    I was accused of plagiarism once if you can believe that. Seems like one post I wrote was very very similar to one another very popular blogger wrote. I will admit, I’ve only visited her blog once but I never read that particular post and had no idea it was so similar. It was a list post and there are only so many ways you can write lists you know. After several discussions she realized I had not copied her content and let it go. I was so upset that someone would ever accuse me of that but my goodness, who has the time to check for the same content since the headings and things weren’t even the same. Hard to do my friend.

    Great tips though I will agree with everything you shared and if you can believe this, I don’t really have anything to add. I know, you’re shocked!

      Yes, I am socked but It can happen at times as I mentioned in the post. there are times when we write something that can be almost similar to someone else’s blog post. This is the reason I have tossed the point to check out own blog posts for plagiarism. It helps us to stand on safer side.

      Thanks for reading Adrienne.

    A very nice post! Couldn’t agree more.
    Not a big fan of bolding the keywords though, just makes the whole post look a bit stupid, especially if the bolding is in pointless places, where no emphasis is needed and etc.

    The power of social media should never be taken lightly. Agreed SEO aids us in ranking among the top ones in the trade, but once our blog goes viral on social media websites, the incoming revenue will never stop. But hard work is involved either way. And totally agree with you on the first point. Some bloggers do tend not to proofread their post, which is highly irritating for the reader.

    When sharing to social media (FB, Twitter) I always wait until noon even though I wrote it in morning, that way most of my friend and FB fan page will see it.

    This would really help content writers who have not much knowledge about optimizing their articles to reach a broader audience. Most often, I see articles that are written flawlessly but still have no page ranks and such; after reading articles I hope such writers understand the importance of keywords and online marketing

    A good title is essential for attracting maximum readers. Keeping these titles simple yet meaningful and eye catchy works extremely well. Along with the title, working on minute mistakes after writing the post is necessary. Proofreading is the solution to this problem.

    Great bunch of tips and nicely written too. I also like to add something to this list, I think giving a good meta description to a blog post is also important because it helps to come out better in search results. And it also helps for crawlers too.

    Hi Atish,

    I always choose Title before beginning the article. But I feel your suggestion is more accurate 🙂

    And another thing is that I’ve noticed your post URL’s just now. All the URL’s are having “.html” extension in the end.

    I have heard that using %POSTNAME% is more better compared to %POSTNAME%.html in SEO. As you have much experience in blogging and of course you are senior than me in blogging :P, What do you suggest me to do ?

      Both are Nice. Yes I too love urls without .html. But in the start when I moved my blog from blogspot to wordpress then it took the url in this form and also there is date too. But I was very new to wp and I didn’t know about the permalinks setting. I later found that but then If I go to change the permalink then I had to redirect all the links to new link structure So I just kept it as it was. Still there is not much difference. Its good.

      you can find urls without .html on my other blogs which I have started later after getting to know about the settings of the Wp.

    And one more thing dude, Why there is no popup or any kind of confirmation that our comment has been submitted ???

    Thanks for the tips. One thing you should add is linking your Google Plus page with your articles. Google give you a boost in search engine results when you link the G+ profile to your articles. Plus its nice to see your photo in search results.

    Hey Atish Bro…
    Great check list bro.
    I like the way you explained the task and then you added the examples as well.
    Example always helps to understand the concept easily… specially for newbie’s.

    Normally people are in hurry to publish the article as soon as they compose it … and they ignore the things you mentioned that result in low traffic or no traffic…. your check list will definitely help them to do important tasks in systematic manner to reap the long term benefit.

    Proof reading is a must after writing down the posts. It helps correct minor mistakes in the post like spelling errors, grammatical mistakes and poor vocablury. A post clear of all these errors has a good impression on the reader and helps generate more traffic.

    Very useful post bro, thanks for this. According to me proofreading must be done to each post, so that we can correct the spelling and make other similar changes. To get more out of our this post we have to interlink some posts that are similar to our current post, because over interlinking is not good for SEO and visitor will not click on the links.
    After publishing our post on blog we have to share it on social sites, by doing this our post will get indexed fast and also get traffic from sites.

    Wonderful tips Atish. I have to admit, I have the tendency not to proofread what I’ve written and check it for plagiarism as well. And I paid the consequences of not doing these things. Now, I am more careful when I am writing.

    Hi Atish,
    These are the necessary pointers which each and every blogger must do, after framing the post. Proof read is the most essential for all, as once we read the post as audience, we come across some of the flaws which could have an adverse impact on the blog. By proof reading, such errors can be rectified. Thanks for providing this checklist.

    Hi Atish – these are great tips. I think I do just about all of them, but I’ve never done a plagiarism check, so that’s something for me to think about.

    On the subject of plagiarism, you might be able to advise me – I’ve had a ping-back on my blog to a site that’s referenced my latest post, but they’ve copied almost the entire post on their page – they’ve credited me and added the link back to the original post on my blog, but I’m worried this might be tracked as duplicate content – what do you think?

      Sue, Don’t accept this kind of pingback. Spammers do it intentionally to get link from other sites. suppose if you approve the ping back then he/she will get a link from your site. However, check that blog and if you find it a good blog then you can approve it but if that blog only copies article from here and there then reject it.

      I don’t accept pingbacks generally

      Accept genuine pingbacks only as when a good blogger mention you in his/her post.

      I don’t use any software to check plagiarism. I just copy and paste 2-3 lines in Google repeatedly for whole article and done. Yes its a bit lazy task but I love this way more than any software like copyscape or others. 🙂

    Hi Atish,
    Really when I first saw your point ‘Check it for plagiarism’, it felt a little weird. As when I am writing an article, its my own thought & writing style which is put into it.
    But after reading, it seems a valid point that someone other also may have my style of writing. So it is always better to check for it in the search engine for the authenticity. Thanks for pointing on this small yet very important issue.
