You know what they always say “Great Content Always Wins”, have you ever wondered what makes a good content?
Is it stuffing so many keywords you want to rank for?
Is it the number of back links within and outside the page?
Is it a captivating title?
Okay, don’t let me bore you with questions.
Just follow me patiently and you’ll get answers.
Firstly, I want you to remove the notion that content is for search engines alone
It is definitely not!
Contents is firstly for your target audience and this should be your primary motive for whatever content you choose to write.
So what about Search engines?
I understand that there’s a need for your content to be found hence you just want to write and keep enforcing those keywords. I understand your pain points, let me help you by highlighting ten guidelines in writing powerful contents that search engines love.
- Write with your target audience in mind
- Use variations of your keywords instead of stuffing them (e.g you can use the word “perfect” in place of “ideal”
- Focus on Long-tailed keywords for your contents
- Be Original, Write to engage your audience
- Link your article with other related articles on your website
- Use head keywords in your titles
- Use H1 tags for titles and H2 or H3 tags for subheadings
- Include alternate texts in your images, Search engines love it
- Meta descriptions don’t affect rank, but ensure you use them effectively they help entice people to click on your page
- Finally, cross-check for errors in your contents so that you won’t appear to Search engines as a robot.
