Sometimes a piece of content can be great, but if it doesn’t rank well in search engine results, it won’t do anyone any good. That’s where SEO comes in – writing content that is optimized for search engine results.
To become a skilled SEO content writer, you first need to have a good understanding of the basics of SEO and online marketing. Then, you need to learn how to write content in a way that is both engaging and informative. Finally, you need to know how to optimize your content for search engine results.
There are many resources available online that can help you learn all of these skills. If you want to get started, I recommend picking up one or more of these books:
- Search Engine Optimization: How to Drive Traffic and Earn Money with Google, Yahoo!, MSN, & Other Key Servers by Neil Patel
- Clickbait: The Power of inducing Desire in Your Readers by Luke Sullivan
- Web Content Development Quick Start: Building High Quality Websites With HTML5 & CSS3
After all, without SEO your content may be lost somewhere on page 50 of the search results; and we all know traffic on those pages is less than satisfactory. Likewise, your first-page ranking can only do so much if your content post-click is crummy. That’s why a good relationship between SEO and great content is essential! Here are tips on how to write SEO content to make your content go further and enhance your SEO efforts at the same time.
