Search Engines know what to show up based on the relevancy of the content on a page. So this means that we need to use the words you want to show up for in the text. This is definitely not the only thing involved, it’s just an important basic to know when blogging.
So for the purposes of your blog, ensure you write good titles for you blogs and on some of them include the keywords you want to show up for in the title and the first paragraph of the article. If the the article is longer you can include it later in the article as well.
The most important thing is to provide good, helpful content for people, but ensuring you use those basics is good too.
