Getting an audience to come to your website isn’t simply about writing a blog post, publishing it and then hoping that people will find it. In order to cultivate a true audience, you need to think carefully about the types of content you publish that will be great for SEO.
It might be an oversimplification, but if you can boil any successful business down to two things, they are: a great product, and great conversion. That's right: no matter how great you make your product and service, it's not worth a dime if those dimes are not rolling in. To sell a product, you need to call your clients' attention to it, and that's called advertising.
When creating content to market your business online, it's essential to understand what needs to be incorporated to rank successfully with Google and other search engines, this is known as search engine optimisation (SEO). While creating copy that is informative, as well as topic and industry-specific, is important, in conjunction with this it has to be easily filtered and categorised by search engine algorithms to achieve better page ranking. Integral to developing targeted SEO content that responds well in organic searches with Google and other search engines is developing a content marketing strategy.
Like all things technology and internet based, SEO is ever-changing and you need to stay ahead of that curve. Given the billions of web searches that business-hungry consumers are doing each day, we all understand the importance of search engine optimisation. But just as important is making sure the way we optimise is relevant to what is happening today.
