How do you make your articles SEO?

Answer: Make sure the title has the keyword you are optimizing for the search engine. Let the keyword also be in the introduction, and then let it be in most of the paragraphs of the article. Don’t always use the keyword the same way, use variations of it so that the search engines don’t perceive you are trying to manipulate it. For example, if your keyword is Acne Treatment, instead of writing acne treatment all the time in the article, you can use such variations as treating acne, acne solution, treatment of acne, etc.
