Search Engine Optimization
“Good SEO Is Paying Attention to All the Details That Most Bloggers Ignore.” – Ryan Biddulph
Search engine optimization is the process of improving the quantity and quality of website traffic to your site from search engines. This means it focuses solely on search engine traffic and not paid and direct traffic.
There are things you can use to help you determine what search engine optimization score each blog post has and how good it is. There are a few things to include like an image and an internal and external link.
But, if you use WordPress for your blog there is a plugin called Yoast which you can add to your dashboard. This plugin uses a system where it ranks each blog post on its SEO.
Although you will need the premium plan to be able to use this. But if you search yoast there are helpful articles you can read to learn more about it.

Google Core Web Vitals
Core Web Vitals is a brand new ranking system that Google introduced in 2020. The Google core web vitals is now a ranking factor in their SERPS (Search engine results page).
The core web vitals are designed to measure the user’s experience when on your site. Focusing on the speed, load time, and visual stability as well as a few other things.
“The slower your sites load, the more visitors and revenue you’ll lose out on. Faster loading pages lead to a better overall website experience, hence Google’s move toward making it a mobile ranking factor.”— Anna Crowe
Some ways you can look to improve these things is by focusing on optimizing your images or setup page caching. There are a lot more things you can do to help this so do your research.
One way to take your blog to a place where you can be your own boss is if you keep track of your DA score (domain authority).
This is how you rank in Google searches so when people search for something it is about how well you rank. This score can determine taking your blog to a level where you get income.
A higher DA score means people will want to work with you and pay more depending on what score you have. There are a few things that contribute to the score but as with most things, it changes a lot.
The basics are how long the website has been an active site, the consistency in your activity on the page as well as external links that connect to your page from other sites.
