Many people don’t know exactly what they need to do once they publish their blog post, so here are three steps you need to take right after you post.

SEO/Keyword Integration

One of the most important steps you can take after writing a blog post or any content that will be available on the Internet is to optimize it. Do some keyword research, go back into your content and insert targeted keywords in you post title, content, meta description and tags. Those keywords and phrases will allow search engines to pull your content and rank you in the search results.

RSS Integration

Use an RSS feed to help you feed your blog’s content to as many different places as possible. This helps because when you have an RRS feed URL plugged into you social network, it helps you publish it to all of those sites with the push a one button. This cuts down on your time and significantly expands your reach.


If you don’t put your content out there, then you are wasting your time. Content distribution is one of the most important actions to take. Use all of your available resources and post your content or a link to as many sites as possible. This will give you traction and drive viewers to your website. Take advantage of forums, threads, and social networks and distribute your content right after you post it.
