Everything you need to know about improving your blog design – including SEO tips, CSS hacks and my fav monetization tools.
- CREATE A SEO-FRIENDLY POST STRUCTURE
I’m talking about headings and subheadings. The Pink template includes a perfectly styled post heading structure, it’s ready to use for you in seconds. Tag your post headings with h2 or h3 and make them better readable for both your visitors and Google! It’s totally simple.
- SHOW YOUR INSTAGRAM FEED TO YOUR READERS
Pictures are always a great idea to build a personal relationship with your readers and make your blog design individual. And there’s one social network where all our pictures are – so go ahead and show your Instagram feed on your blog! Maybe in the footer down your page, or in the sidebar – there are many different possibilities. The Pink comes with an in-built Instagram feed, but you can also use free services like Snapwidget.
- USE THE ‘READ MORE’ FUNCTION – IT’S GOOD FOR SEO AND FAST PAGE LOADING
If included (like in this template) you don’t have to do anything. But if your template doesn’t have the automatic read more function, you should always use jump breaks and don’t show the whole post on the homepage. This will make your blog load much faster and that’s another plus in SEO for you.
- MAKE MONEY WITH AFFILIATE WIDGETS THAT MATCH YOUR BLOG DESIGN
Ever wondered how to monetize your blog and make it look as gorgeous as your blog design is? There are plenty of affiliate networks out there – my fav one is Shopstyle Collective, you can try it out for free – and they all offer widgets you can include in your posts or pages. The Pink template already has the right styling for those widgets in-built, you will love it!
- DON’T BE AFRAID OF HTML AND CSS
Really, there’s no need to be! It’s no magic, just a bit of coding – and you will get better and better the more often you try. By purchasing this template you will receive a HTML/CSS cheat sheet with the most important rules to know. These are basics of every bloggers knowledge and I promise, it’s not as difficult as you imagine!
