Post Regularly

In order to grab Google's attention, you need at least 100 pages on your blog AND you need to continue posting regularly.

Make sure you always have pages in your pending publication list so that fresh content regularly hits your blog.

Posting regularly is beneficial to SEO performance:

  1. Fresh Content: Search engines favor regularly updated websites, boosting rankings.
  2. Keyword Opportunities: More content means more chances to target a variety of keywords.
  3. User Engagement: Frequent updates keep users returning, which improves metrics like time-on-page.
  4. Authority: Consistent, high-quality posts establish your site as an authority in the field.
  5. Indexing: More content leads to more frequent crawling by search engines, aiding quicker indexing.
  6. Long-Tail Keywords: Regular posting allows you to target long-tail keywords, capturing niche traffic.
  7. Social Signals: Frequent posting encourages social sharing, indirectly aiding SEO.
  8. Internal Linking: More posts provide more opportunities for internal linking, distributing page authority.
  9. Competitive Edge: Staying current and consistent keeps you ahead or on par with competitors in search rankings.

Adjust your Posting Strategy to the Keyword Difficulty

You should tailor your posting strategy to the keyword difficulty of your target keywords.

It's common to differentiate between long-tail keywords, which have low volume and low competition, and short-tail keywords, which have high volume and high competition.

Targeting long-tail keywords usually yields better short-term results. These keywords are longer and more specific, indicating a more precise search intent and resulting in higher conversion rates.

For example, you won't rank for "SEO" with just one article because the keyword is too competitive. However, you might achieve a ranking with a blog entirely dedicated to SEO, consisting of multiple clusters, each filled with 20 blog posts.

Similarly, you won't rank for "keyword strategy" with a single article. But you might achieve a ranking with a cluster of 20 pages about keyword strategy.

On the other hand, it might be easier to rank for "How building semantic clusters helps target high volume keywords" with one article because this query is very specific and thus has less competition.

Share your Sitemap to GSC

Sharing a sitemap with Google Search Console (GSC) is an effective way to enhance the discoverability of your website's pages by search engines.

Benefits of Sharing a Sitemap

  • Improved crawling efficiency: By providing a sitemap, you assist search engines in efficiently navigating and indexing your website's content.
  • Increased page visibility: When search engines can easily access and understand your sitemap, they are more likely to prioritize indexing your pages.
  • Faster indexing: By submitting a sitemap, you expedite the process of getting your web pages indexed by search engines.

How to Share a Sitemap with GSC

  1. Open your website from the dashboard and right-click the page then click source content.
  2. Search for the word "sitemap" and copy the URL you find. It should typically be in the format "" for the index and "" for each locale sitemaps.
  3. Log in to Google Search Console here.
  4. Verify your site: Ensure that your website is verified and added to Google Search Console. This step confirms your ownership and grants access to various webmaster tools.
  5. Access the sitemaps section: In Google Search Console, navigate to the "Sitemaps" section under the "Index" category.

⚡GSC often displays an error on first sitemap submission. You need to submit it a second time to have Google Actually crawl your urls.

Making sure pages are indexed

Watch closely for the reasons why your blog pages might not be indexed. Often you just need to ask GSC to validate a fix. Do it!

There might however be some reasons why your content is not indexed:

  • cannibalization: the content is very similar to existing content. this is your responsibility to avoid that by choosing relevant keywords.
  • technical issue: reboom makes sure this does not happen.

Benefits of Linking your Existing Site to your New Blog

  • Transfer of link juice: By linking the new site to an existing one, the established site can pass some of its authority and link value to the new site. This helps in improving the new site's search engine visibility and ranking potential.
  • Increased organic traffic: When a reputable website links to a new site, it can attract referral traffic from the established site's visitors. This can result in an increase in organic traffic to the new site.
  • Enhanced domain authority: Linking a new site to an authoritative and relevant existing site can contribute to the new site's domain authority. This, in turn, can positively impact its search engine rankings.
  1. Add a link from your footer or header to your new blog
  2. Link landing pages to cluster pages:
    From reboom, you can link clusters to landing pages. We recommend this as a way to convert visitors better. We also recommend doing the opposite to transfer relevant authority from your landing pages to your clusters.
