Write for your audience and optimize it for ‘Search Engines’
It may sound cliche!!! But this is the ultimate truth. When you create content, you need to focus on users and search engines.
- Create unique and evergreen content for your users.
- Optimize the content for search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing)
As per research, many marketers disagree with this approach. Marketers state that ‘quality content’ is important than optimization. But the fact is content and optimization has equal importance.
The main motto of search engines – Keep their users happy!! This can be done by providing answers to their questions.
If you concentrate on only one purpose i.e providing quality content to your users without search engine consideration. At the end, you’ll publish evergreen content to your website. But, nobody can see and read your content.
Therefore, create unique content and optimize it perfectly according to the search engine. Here you go with SEO content on your website.
Publish detailed and sharable content
When you pose a question to content marketers regarding ‘Long-form Content’. You may receive two different opinions from them.
- One content marketer may say that ‘Long-form content’ is like a gamble.
- Another content marketer can state that longer articles can engage well with users. Offer great value and experience.
What do you think? Whom do you find a genuine answer? Yes, you’ve guessed it right!! Long-form content is more beneficial for user and search engines.
Many people consider the article or blog post longer than 1000 to 1500 words are considered as long-form content.
These articles can rank top in various search engines. Publish a long-form content that includes every aspect – what, how, why, advantages, drawbacks rather than posting single articles.
In order to reach the maximum audience, you need to conduct in-depth research on social networks. Search and get a clear picture of ‘what type of content your audience prefers’.
