The importance of having a method to speed up article writing
When writing for a blog, it is important to have a method that makes the writing process faster and more effective. The writing must be fluid, smooth, and must be able to capture the reader’s attention from the very first paragraph. To speed up the writing of a post, it is first necessary to prepare properly. In this article, we will explain how to speed up the time it takes to write an article and what steps to follow to adopt an effective blog article writing method.
How long should a blog post be?
This is a question that many people are asking. Let us therefore try to give a sensible answer. In general, an article should be long enough to be comprehensive and useful, but at the same time it should not bore the reader.
This statement is correct, but not exhaustive. This is because it is very important to understand what kind of article we are talking about. In this short guide we will discuss how to speed up the writing of a blog article, and therefore any pointers will be related to this goal.
Googling how many words an SEO-oriented article should have, two important sources can be found. The first is a study conducted in 2012 by serpIQ, the other is a buffer blog post that explains in detail the length optimal of a post for anything published online.
The summary from both sources is that the optimal length of a blog article averages about 1600 words. Longer posts generally perform better in search, while posts containing more than 2,000 words receive more shares on social media. The average length of articles in the top 5 positions in Google was 2400 words.
Other studies by Moz, Medium, and Hubspot agree with the findings above.Research shows that longer posts are valuable for a blog in terms of SEO, social shares, and engagement.
Steps to speed up the writing of a blog article
We can summarize the steps for writing a blog article quickly in 4 steps:
Preparing an editorial plan for the blog
Before you start writing, you need to choose the theme of the article. This is certainly work that needs to be planned before you start writing your article. It is important to prepare a proper editorial plan for your blog so that you are clear about what to cover, what keywords to use, what are the important points to explore. We have prepared a basic guide explaining how to create an effective blog article that you can check out below:
After identifying the theme, you need to start brainstorming to find related topics. It is important not to stop at first ideas and to keep thinking until you have a complete list of ideas to use in the article.
Once you have chosen your theme and have the topics, you need to do extensive research to find accurate and up-to-date information. If you aim to write blog articles with an SEO perspective, it is important to prepare a thorough analysis of the keywords you want to use within your editorial plan. This is work that definitely needs to be done upstream, during the planning of your editorial plan. If you do a good job, you only need to consider your analysis before you start writing your article and carefully select the keywords you want to use and rank for. As for writing articles from an SEO perspective, another practical guide will be needed, so we will not delve into this topic in this post.
How to structure a blog article
After gathering all the necessary information, it is time to start structuring the article. What we recommend you do is to prepare a structure of your article. Ask yourself: what are the basic points that my article should cover? What are the keywords I want to position? What are the searches that users do on Google?
Thanks also to the previous work done on keyword analysis, it will be very easy for you to identify the topics to be covered. Then create a table of contents for your article by writing titles for each paragraph. This will be helpful for you to have a guideline on the topic to be covered and proceed expeditiously in writing your blog post.
Writing a blog article
Well, if you have come this far, now the easy part begins: writing your blog article. To do this, our advice is to document yourself thoroughly on the topic so that you have full mastery of it, and only then start writing using the outline you have prepared and the keywords you want to place.
