13 Amazing Steps to Outline a Blog Post

Today I’ll teach you how to prepare the outline for a blog post.


Here, Outline means to decorate any content to be attractive with which you can make your content even more interesting and full of quality.


I have been blogging for many years and I found that some people who have been blogging quite a while or can even say that those people who have become old on the blog are also well-prepared blog posts properly are unable to do.


If I ask you, do you have all the blog posts that are considered half-cooked right now?


I am discussing with you about those blog posts which were written very enthusiastically in your beginning as if you have a huge store of knowledge.


And now you have a drought like the idea. Or you can also say that your knowledge store seems empty. Like you don’t have words for a blog post.


Are you also included in those bloggers or people who keep tabs and bounce like a drunken monkey while writing a blog?


Now I’ll try to understand you with my example –


When I started blogging, I used to write blog posts without any framework or structure. I had no sense to write, just as I wished or just came to mind, just wrote.


But such a blog post neither receives traffic nor is liked. Moreover, your visitors also start going away from you.


Then I researched that something is going wrong, which I am suffering. This brought me the way of blog post which suggested me to prepare the outline of the blog post.


And I also realized that without research, outline, writing, your brain will not be able to create fluency to write. These three things are very important for your brain.


I sincerely hope that as soon as you understand that your content is incomplete without the outline.


Without an outline, your blog post has no value.


The outline of any blog post consists of two steps –

  1. Research
  2. Creations

Today we will learn about these two steps in detail in this post.

define your goal

Every part of the content you are writing should be targeted by you. If you want Visitor to arrive at the top of your funnel, and the products you are promoting are ready to buy Visitor.


Whenever you write a blog post, you must have this question in your mind or your goal should be that what can or will I get from this post.


If we believe that you are posting a blog on losing weight, then you will write in such a way that the material we are talking about is paleo which helps in reducing the weight of overweight people by about 20 lbs.

2. Topical Research


In this step, we will talk about the research that the main keyword in our blog post, LSI keywords also have an important role, because of this it makes it easier for our blog post to take rankings, just you have to target these keywords.


You can search these keywords in Google on which topics and topics you have to create a blog. Whether Topics can get ranking or not.


Use the SEMRush tool to track all your keywords with 30 days trial.


I would suggest you do a blog post with a keyword that you have less competition with. And you also get a good ranking so that you can create a good outline for a blog post.


I want you to have a list of targeted keywords by the end of this article so that you will be able to make your blog post in the ranking.

3. Make a list Questions to Answer

Make a list Questions to Answer

In this step, you have to make a list of questions asked by you, which are often asked by visitors.


Whenever you post a blog, you are questioned and you have to answer them, so you should prepare a list in advance that you feel that these questions can be asked in my blog post.


There is also an option for you that with the help of Google you can improve keywords with words like what, why in your blog post.


It is possible that you do not get so much searching for these questions, for that you do not need to be disappointed nor did I lose. 

4. Just be patient

Just be patient.

If search is not coming much, then is there a possibility of joint search more, which helps you to prepare the outline of your blog post.


I recommend that whenever you post a blog for 1000 words, you must choose at least 10 questions for them, which are very important for your blog post.


It is possible that the SEMRush can find the solution to his problem in these questions.



From this stage, it comes to light that whatever article you are writing is making your work easier, what information you have in the minds of the visitors, they should get this content.

5. Analysis of Top Ranking Pages

Now I have a question with you, would you like to be ranked in the top ranking of the Search Engine? As far as I am thinking, your answer will be Big Yes. 


There is hardly any blogger who does not want to be included in the top rankings of the web. But for this, you need to analyze.


For this, you have to analyze Google with your seed keywords, so that you can come in the top ranking.


You have to focus on five such things in your competitor’s blog or focus on the deficiencies that are not in their blog posts.


And you could learn from them that there is no shortage of blog posts.

6. Paste the Essentials

Now it is time to make documents. As soon as you prepare the list, you have to create an option and get the sub-list for which you have to take the help of the tab button on your keyboard. 


Now as soon as you press the tab, the sub-list will be ready on the list. Now you need to consider how to paste whatever research you have done to get into your top.


  • Article Goal
  • Word Count
  • Main Keyword & LSI Keywords
  • Target audience and their intentions
  • List of pain problems you are solving

Now you paste them all because you need these to prepare the outline of the blog post.

7. Outline the Introduction


You need to include all the problems in your blog post that people are facing such as their anxiety, intention and their pain points that you can include in your introduction.


The introduction is the only source that the user read first and know about the post that what is special in this post, which is making it better. 


You have to make the introduction a spark for your blog post, which the reader will eagerly read your post after reading.


If you want to learn from me then you don’t need to do much, just scroll the page with your mouse and see the introduction of this post.


You have to give full confidence to the audience or the readers that your blog post is the solution to their problems.


 And you have to attract their attention more so that the visitors can get more posts on your post.

8. Prepare Great Sub-Headings

This step is to give your blog post a form that will make your post look more attractive. For this, you have to add some heading and subheadings in your blog post and keep those subheadings in order. 


Because keeping subheadings in order will work better for your blog post. In this, you have to first write the heading and sub-headings and put everything else inside the subheadings.

9. Outline the Points for Each Subheading

Once you set the subheadings, you will not have any problem in preparing the content inside them. You can easily prepare or write the material inside.


After this, it is the turn to work to prepare the outline of your blog posts so far – like document research, questioning, intents, competitive analysis all of them have been merged and there is no exemption for them. 


There should be no shortage of content in your blog post. You’ve to focus on the same thing every time that you have to choose the questions which are related to audience problems.


These questions which you’ve included in the post will give a creative look to your blog and helps to define the quality.

10. Include Conclusion

Conclusion for outlining a blog post as the name suggests, the squeeze of any content or thing. At the end of any article, we must include the conclusion of the article or blog post. 


Because there are many readers who find out about the content only by looking at the conclusion whether the content should be read or not.


In conclusion, I also suggest you include the author, which is very important.


You should include in your conclusion that you must ask to buy any product and share the blog.

11. Word count for Each section

word count

Here I would like to discuss one more point with you that if you want your blog post to be more attractive and relevant, then you should think to count the word in every section made in your post.


If you have a keyword in any section or section in a blog post that is working with all your points. And if that keyword is more important to you, then you can point out that keyword.


Or you can also assign that keyword to a higher word count.If you do this then it can be helpful in helping you to increase your ranking.

12. Structure Reorder's

When you have prepared the outline of your blog post, you should check out once more before publishing the blog whether your blog post is suitable for the readers or not?


Is your blog post organized according to readers?


We do not need to change or add to this.


And one thing, you should keep every section in your blog post in such a way that your blog post gets interesting while reading below. And even if the reader wishes, he shouldn’t leave your post.

13. Check Topical Alignment


Check your blog post once again to see if the content of your blog post is outlined?
