Guest blogging has been an integral part of the SEO Process from the get-go. It’s a great way to utilize the limitless potential of the internet and all you have to do is use it properly. Sure, advertisements and the other more intricate SEO techniques are out there but guest blogging is one of the simpler techniques; it’s simple but it’s also extremely effective.
SEO is one of the most fun endeavours people pursue because it requires hard work and the pay-off is extremely satisfying. I have always believed in the idea that the things that are truly worth it in life are things that you have to work hard for – and SEO is one of them. Nothing is more satisfying than watching your website grow; along with that growth come an influx of visitors, both returning and curious people who are looking for what you offer.
In short, these visitors are your returning customers as well as potential customers that you have yet to convert. Of course, converting people into active supporters require considerable effort and patience as well as the ability to dish out content that people may find informative or satisfying.
Many SEO specialists think that technical SEO should be the number one priority. I believe that finding the perfect balance between technical SEO as well as content writing is the key to making your website work. Let me tell you why in 10 easy steps.
SEO is a field thought of as something that is mainly electronic or something that exists exclusively on the internet. That is true for the most part as some of the determining factors of success for a website are things like keyword quality, link quality, the speed of your page as well as user experience. Because of these factors, many SEO specialists have begun to focus solely on the technical aspect of SEO when it comes to their webpage optimization plans or strategies. This isn’t necessarily bad practice but it is the sort of practice that can be improved by giving some focus on another important thing: The users.
It’s all too easy to ignore long-form content. With services like Twitter and Vine attracting millions of users every day, with GIFs and memes running rampant across the internet, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the art of long-form writing is dying out. I’ve been working as an SEO copywriter for a couple of years now, and when I first started I was told that all pieces that I produced, whether a blog post, and article or a press release, needed to be at least 500 words but never any more than 800.
So, you’re about to hit ‘Publish’ on your latest piece of content.
With an increasing pressure to create lengthy, viral, highly-shared content, it’s all too easy to forget a crucial piece of the content puzzle along the way.
