You may think I am crazy or stupid when you see this post title. You are right! because this post is talking about a crazy and stupid way to become creative and productive, and the way I fight my laziness just for write a post on my blog.
If you do not leave at this phrases, and still with me, maybe you are smart but you are just crazy as I am lol.
Okay! what I like to talking about is how to become more creative and productive in creating content on blog by not take to serious about SEO stuff like keyword, content length, backlink, competitors etc.
All theory about SEO stuff that every gurus teach you is right, because they are really expert and have a descent knowledge about SEO, and there is no doubt about it.
The problem is, this is one of main reason, why we as blogger become less productive, and worst, become far far from creative in creating blog content.
This is the reason and what we can do to break it sometimes. This is a very useful tricks especially when you start a new blog. So you can move fast only in a couple month.

Forget about keyword just start to write
Keyword research is important, but sometimes you don’t have to get confused by keywords stuff in crafting and publishing content.
If you really care about your reader, focus on value is #1.
In fact not all of our content have must to be in Google first page.
Write your ideas first, and let keywords flow by it self. If keywords doesn’t flow we can always edit and update the content at another days.
Too long is boring sometimes
It’s true that more length the content is more strength your content in SERP (search engine result pages). Just like I said before, not all of your content have must to be in Google first page.
But every time you write a post, you don’t always have to create a content with length 1500 + words. When the topic is no need to be that long, then you don’t have to push it to be.
“Its better to be dynamics than boring.” sometimes what makes content is a king is value not length.
And the result is:
When audience read one to another post on your blog they will get a dynamics impression. And your blog have more rich content too.
Competitors is not your enemy
Waste time to research and observe to create more quality content is better than waste time to spying competitors and waste time for nothing.
Unless your website is promoting a brand or product in high competition field. Maybe you will need to using tools such as SEMRush etc.
But if your blog is just a ‘blog’, I think you don’t have to.
Backlink is not everything
Fact about commenting to create backlink is good for traffic is a false myth. The truth is, blog who has a lot of comment in their post is who get the benefits. We? who commenting is not.
Just check your site in analytics, see how much traffics referral you’ve got from comment backlink? … see!
And the worst is, your comment is marked as spam if your only purpose to comment is just to build backlink and don’t event read the post.
Commenting is good for build relation but not for backlink. So its better just focus on create more good content and make Google loves you in natural way.
So what about guess blogging?
My self never did a guess blogging, but it’s a good tradition anyway. Once again don’t believe the myth. Just focus on growing your own blog first. Guest blogging, monetizing etc etc it can follow later when your blog get bigger and better.
Follow trend doesn’t always make your content go viral
We don’t have to follow the trend to get more audience.
When create content by following what’s trend, we only posting similar content topics that already posted everywhere.

Sometimes you have to be different and have a courage to become a trend setter instead. And not only just become another trend follower.
Conclusion for Breaking the SEO Rules!
Try it your self and you will see the result. You will become more productive than before. If you do not see the result, and your site rank going down, you can blame me in the comment section.
However do this only if that all theories of SEO stuff make your creativity stuck. Fore sure, before breaking the rules you have to know the rules first, at least the basic. And it doesn’t mean breaking the law.
Stay clean and stay true! Be more productive & creative, be different be a badass blogger! Happy blogging 🙂
