 Yet, it’s a constant battle, right?

But what if there were methods to simplify content writing talent, rather than all the SEO penning techniques?

free seo tips for small business

Now that would be an incredible free tip, right?

Picture this …………Imagine not worrying as often, or banging your head against the wall with nagging thoughts about:

  • Keyword density, content writing
  • Is my writing good enough, unique and provoking?
  • Is my word count enough, have I used LSIs ? 
  • Have I over optimised the site, kissmetrics explains  penalties from google?

Yes, I thought so, now we’ve all been there!! …….

But there’s good news for small business owners, and the many young people applying for freelance content writer jobs online with some techniques we all have, but just didn’t realise!

So let’s get down to business….

We all possess Content Writing Skills, but we chose over time to forget, let’s jog our memories with a story!

I was never that fascinated during English studies, because like most I can image, the thought process at the tender age of 13 was not solely on English studies!

Even to this day, I can still recall murmuring softly, “it’s a pointless chore to undertake, and why should I ponder over adjectives or even attempt to see the logical sense of adverbial phrases.”

It was such a chore. I mean speaking, writing, and communicating was enough, so who cares about sentence construction, or even that an essay should have an Intro, body text and conclusion!

“Teach me a foreign language!” I yelled at my English teacher. Yes, I was slightly “feral” in my younger days!

We’ve all been there, right?…….

My teacher even said my essays were boring, my adjectives were feeble, my vocabulary was dismal to say the least, and it was suggested I ought to research synonyms to stop repetitive usage of the same words! (Over-optimisation)

Well as time moved on, my English improved, if only by a little, until my work in the media/digital market space forced me into an IELTS course to improve copy writing and that’s when the penny dropped!

Does my old English teacher from 40 years ago (Making him 87) have a new job within Google!!

With all joking aside, I’m sure you can see where this is heading.

Let’s look at the facts here.

  • POTENTIAL PROBLEM: If you over-use the keywords/phrase within content writing it will look Spammy and unnatural, penalties from Google could be forced.
  • POSSIBLE SOLUTION: To overcome this issue use synonyms and sprinkle a few LSI words into the mix as English teachers taught us at school!
  • POSSIBLE PROBLEM: Not using the correct heading, or not staying on topic, not writing rich, thought provoking copy content.
  • POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Use adjectives to add some colour, use the structure we used at school by having an introduction, the body of the text giving reasons and examples, finishing with a conclusion

There we have it. I think indirectly Google are forcing us back to school, by giving us English classes with my old teacher!

This article was written in a fun way. At a higher level, much more goes into this for SEO purposes and copy writing, but I truly believe this is a step in the right direction to basic copy writing skills, eliminating some potential issues. I dedicate this to Mr Moore my teacher back in 1973 and I would have listened, because in the SEO industry, it definitely helps!

Think of this as a newspaper, we all read them, right?…………….. People do not read, but rather scan, and the headlines are what we look at. How many of us digest every word?

If this is new, and SEO components are somewhat difficult to understand, by following these simple rules you will naturally write for readers AND GOOGLE.

Now let’s not get too excited here!  Yes, we know that keyword research, not forgetting advanced SEO techniques, is instrumented within the SEO world, however that story is somewhat different.

What Example of Bad Content Writing can be shown within your Free SEO Advice section?

Writing Content is just one of many major elements within our on site SEO tips section. Other topics to cover include, meta elements, internal link structures, site structure, frankly it’s like a jigsaw puzzle, but if done properly, you would have completed a fine piece of SEO art, or in business terms financial rewards and stability!

In the old days of early search engines, before their algorithms evolved, they gave back results based on specific search keywords, so if for instance you were a “Builder in Bristol” and you placed this phrase say 10 times  within your copy text, you would possibly rank number one, on the assumption of the competition, who was also a builder in Bristol mentioned their same phrase (Builder in Bristol) 11 times, then they would out rank you (In basic English terms).

An example of bad copy would be where you try to force keywords into content in an unnatural way, causing the chances of over-optimisation, or keyword stuffing.

Google gives a service to its customers that search worldwide, and extremely dedicated on user experience, not to say retrieving the correct results based on trustauthority , and relevance. But more so to stop spamming. Social media was, and still is a big part, and a vast amount of business is gained via social media campaigns along with PPC (pay per click)…… but great content will always be shared. Let’s turn the tables around here slightly, and think of how you might feel, if you typed in a search term, to be given totally irrelevant information ! I know we have all been there, and it’s so frustrating!
