These are basic instructions for posting blogs to client websites.

  1. Each post should focus on a single keyword – keyword should be in the title and in the body of the post
  2. Each post should have one (possibly more) category
  3. Each post should have at least 2 tags, more if possible. Should always be related to post. NOTE: tags must be used.
  4. Each post should contain one image, at the top of the article, float left or right, as you choose.
  5. Images should have a physical size no larger than 600px WIDE.
  6. Images should have a file size no larger than 99KB.
  7. Image must have Keyword Alt Tag
  8. Yoast SEO, at the bottom of the post admin, should be completed (Focus Keyword, SEO Title and Description)
  9. Each post should have a thumbnail image (see below:)

To have a thumbnail appear beside the Excerpt on the blog of a client site, please follow these steps:

  1. Click ‘Featured Image’ link on the right side below ‘Publish’
    1
  2. Click publish or update.
  3. Be sure to check the blog page (or front page depending on how the site is set up) to confirm that the thumbnail was inserted correctly.

SEO

When you wrote the post, you should have chosen a KEYWORD / PHRASE. Enter that information in the ‘FOCUS KEYWORD’ area. Add the SEO Title – include the keyword / phrase. Add the SEO META DESCRIPTION. Add the PHONE NUMBER if it makes sense in the context of the description.
