The key to writing good online content
Online content is the key to successfully building up an online business. Your online advertising campaign hinges on the approach you take to producing and displaying content.
The first important key to writing good online content is to be aware that you are writing for your customers and not for the search engines. Certain search engine optimisation requirements may dictate some of the structure of the content but focusing purely on this aspect results in bad content.
Search engines such as Google will favour sites and pieces of content that they deem to be relevant and useful to internet users. This means that if a website features content with keyword spamming for example the site may be ranked downwards. Even if the content features the correct and relevant keywords the overuse of these words makes that content less readable for the user. Therefore the site suffers in rankings.
In order to write good online content the writing should be made for the user first and then adjusted for SEO after. Many site owners make the mistake of trying to choose between good content for their visitors and well structured SEO. The key to getting ranked well in search engines is to take a two fold approach.
Ask yourself if he content is easy to read and informative. Are your site pages well structured with internal links to enable the visitor to move between the main pages? Use customer feedback to establish how useful and enjoyable your site is to your projected customer base. It is important to keep the content relevant to the visitors you are trying to attract. Large numbers of visitor who are ultimately not interested in your product or service will not be helpful to you. Additionally if your site drawing in visitor to whom your product or service is not relevant you may eventually start losing out in the search engines.
Establish that the content is relevant to your projected customers. Then carefully work on creating content that this base of people find useful. Once you have this in place apply the principals of SEO to the content without damaging its appeal to the visitor. For example you may wish to add in keywords that are relevant to your business. Ensure that you do not damage the appeal of the content in the process.
If you take this approach to writing online content you will get good results.
