How to write Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in your web page or blog post
1. Make a list of your keyword(s) that you want to use in this material. Hopefully, you have also made a mental note or written down related words that reinforce your keywords.
2. Create your title that grabs the readers interest and use a keyword or two in it. Statistics show that search engine optimization (SEO) does gain you visibility in search engine results.
3. Write one or two subheadings that you will use throughout your article. Make sure they  contain your target keyword and your related keywords. 
4. The headings should be scattered through the article and you need at least one H1, H2, and H3 heading.
5. Your target keyword should be included in the first sentence of the article and bolding it can help too. Key word strategy is the foundation of SEO and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) which improves your traction in the search engines. 
6. Your target keyword should also be included in the last sentence and should be underlined or made Italic.
7. Use an image in your post, I have to do better with this one, and use your key words as the ALT tag. That means when a reader hovers their mouse over the image they will see your key word.
8. IMPORTANT: use your keywords a maximum of 1% in your article. Over using them means the search engine will know that you are “loading” your page and demote it. For example, if you have 400 words in your article then  each keyword can be used four times.
9. Link to other pages on your blog or web site using some of you key words - not all of them. These are called internal links. For example, if your article has a total of 10 keywords then make six of them internal links.
