Step 4: Once your blog post content is done, you need to configure your page SEO in the section below.

  • Custom URL: We recommend using a shortened version of your blog post title – no more than three to five words.
  • Page title: Create a clear title for the page using no more than 60 characters (this won’t be visibly displayed on the blog post).
  • Page Description: Create a meta description in 160 characters or less. This tells search engines what the blog post is about.

Step 6: Scroll to the top of the screen and check out the options on the right-hand side.

Here you can toggle the blog post from “Unpublished” to “Published.” 

This makes your blog post live the moment you hit “Save.”

If you want your post to be published on a specific date, click on the option found below where it says “Unpublished.”

Choose the preferred publishing date and click “Apply.”

Step 7: Finally, upload a header image for your blog and add the “Image Alt” text. 

If you want, you can also create and add tags to help categorize and organize your blog posts better. 

These allow readers to click on the tags and find posts related to the tags.

For example, a blog about cooking might add tags for Asian cuisine, Mexican cuisine, European cuisine, vegetarian, vegan, etc.

When you’re done, hit “Save” in the top-right corner and your blog post is ready to go!
