For SEO, the content should be strictly focused on the topic and centered on the relevant Keywords. Search engines crawl the relevancy of the page based on the keywords. Do not assume that they just see the keywords alone. They are smart enough to evaluate the significance of the keyword with regard to the entire content. Spamming with keywords will never work, in fact it will have a negative impact on the content, ie you will no longer be noticed by search engines. It is crucial to research and be creative to find and use keywords especially in the online world because it dictate whether you attract browsers or buyers, information seekers or product and service seekers, and finally, keywords even help to determine how many visitors you receive from search engines.
Before writing the content a careful analysis of the competitor with respect to the content and keywords is vital. Also there is no point in writing a large content with unnecessary explanation. Users will get attracted to quality content and also in the very first paragraph itself you need to provide the summary of the article by following the journalistic norm ie, the content should be in an inverted pyramid style including 5 W’s(WHAT , WHO, WHY WHICH, WHEN, WHERE and 1H (HOW).
Title is the first thing that a potential visitor will find in search results. Keywords should begin with the title in order to woo the search engine and also the users. Also important is the Meta description which induces whether or not you get the click and it should be limited to 165 characters so that the full description will be visible in search results. A keyword density more than 5.5% will be considered as keyword stuffing, and certainly irritates Google. Keywords alone cannot take your site on the top slot on a search result page but using the right keywords plays a great role in getting search engine traffic.
Your site can be accessed only through the relevant keywords and without them it is invisible to everyone whatsoever, useful and informative they may be. A professional copywriter will always learn the competition for the product or service and hence use appropriate keywords at the right places with accurate headings. The keywords should be proportionate and equally disseminated throughout the content.
SEO Copy writing has come a long way that now it turned a little more complex than before. Search engines are becoming smarter day by day updating their algorithm often and also upgrading their criteria for ranking. You cannot just write some content by stuffing all the keywords. Google and other search engines know very well how to tackle low quality content that carry keyword stuffing. Google brought out “Content Farm” which demote the sites carrying low quality content and also an option to its users to report sites that carry low quality content via Personal Blocklist Chrome Extension“(If installed, the extension will send the blocked site information to Google and Google will conduct a study to consider that as a potential ranking signal for their search results). Irrespective of the number of tips one can give for SEO Copywriting, ultimately the quality of content only matters the most and in the coming days this will remain as one of the significant aspect for ranking. Once the content becomes popular you will get natural backlinks. Also very important is the way you market your content. Even though you possess quality content, if it is not endorsed then you can’t expect the dissemination of the same. So it is also important to promote it competently and the best medium is via social platforms. One of the most authentic way of propagation is “By Word of mouth” and it becomes a chain communication while referring from one person to another, the same you could expect with social media platforms. For e.g., if you share your content with known people and if they find it worth, without even asking they certainly promote it. Social media like facebook, twitter, Digg in, Delicious, stumble upon are apt medium to promote yourself and also the content. You could also participate in forums to get credibility for what you say and write. So keep in mind that Content is the King and forever it remains the same, and equally important is the promotion of the same via social media platforms.
