The quality content should be those that must be able to engage users and motivate them to read until the end of the post and also encourage them to navigate other pages of that particular blog.
To engage with users on your blog, you need to write those content that must be deeper than your competitor’s content. It means, your content should have each and every detail about those topics on which you’re going to write.

So, you need to write content that would be free from grammatical errors & other misspelled words and that content is called quality content.

If you want your blog posts to perform well on search engines and drive more traffic to your blog, you need to create catchy and powerful titles for every single post of your blog.
Because title becomes the first step to attract the attention of users and encourage them to click and invite on your blog posts.
To make your title catchy you need to put keywords and also use some modifiers like what, why, when, which, how, win, prize, and numbers to make your title tag-powerful, convincing & catchy.
Your title should have to be convincing and need to have an ability to invite users on your blog.

So, you need to put some time & effort to create those catchy titles that ultimately help you to get huge traffic and also will help you to rank your blog higher on search engines.

Visualize Your Content
Text in blog posts has always been a great way to provide information and sharing knowledge with the audiences. But now your audience is looking for some visualizations in blog posts to grab and remember more & more information easily and quickly.

Sometimes while reading long blog posts audience feels bored to read continuously. So, you need to include visual components in your content to make your blog posts more engaging and interesting to read.
Visual components include Infographics, Charts, Graphs, Images, Videos, Illustrations, Screenshots, and GIFs.
By incorporating Images, Infographics, and videos in your content, you make it easier for your users to absorb more information easily.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words. It means a picture will convey information & idea more quickly than the written content. Also, it makes it easier for users to remember those images with information.
Visualizations makes your content more interesting and it hold user on your blog & motivate them to read your content and navigate to others pages of your blog.
And, this will help your blog to rank on the top of search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc and ultimately you will get huge traffic on your blog in terms of qualified leads.

If you have a blog related to “Diseases” that tells symptoms, causes, cure, and remedies of various diseases then you can write a post on Covid-19 that tells about its symptoms, ways to prevent, natural remedies to keep the immune system strong and much more, etc.
So, you’ve to search and write on those trendy topics according to your niche that makes your blog easily searchable by the audiences.
Write SEO-Friendly Content
Google Loves SEO. Search Engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo prefer those websites or blogs that are SEO-Friendly & provide solutions to the problem of users.

So, you need to create your content in such a way that it helps search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing to rank your site higher.
Although some marketers and bloggers think that they need to stuff keyword in their blog or site to rank higher. But they need to understand that the aim of the content is to educate your reader and provide the right information so they engage with your content.
But if you stuff keywords on your page then the purpose of your content will not be fulfilled and your blog or site fails to engage with your users.
You need to put keywords in your content in a natural way so that it helps your content to rank well on search engines.
To make your blog clickable, you need to put some efforts and make your content interesting for your users to read. You need to fill your content with visualizations so that users will understand easily about what information you want to convey.
