Hi Faizan Brother,
It's really a helpful post. I want to request you something.
Please create a short video tutorial in urdu, on how to write SEO friendly blog posts. It will be so useful for me an thousands of other blogger from Pakistan and India.
Many articles are available in written form, on this topic but they cannot help anyone as a video tutorial can do.
I'm waiting for your reply, bro.
