Have you ever faced the sobering truth, that no matter how frequently you publish articles, your website is just not picking up on organic results?
This is a common issue.
But what if I told you that it’s possible to spice up your blog with certain SEO-driven article types that, besides engaging your readers, also please search engines?
We recently added a new feature to Thrive Architect, called Content Blocks. These new content templates are ‘Content Block Elements’ with a preformatted layout that you can add to your article with only a few clicks. This new feature will help you organize your SEO content into a nice layout without having to do any formatting yourself.
In this post, we discuss how can you use these Content Blocks to build up specific content types your readers and search engines will love.

So are you ready to follow Stephen’s lead and learn how to upgrade your New Coaching Client generation page with a Thrive Leads ThriveBox (a popup lightbox that’s triggered on text, image or button click)?
