Lightbulb SEO Optimization For Content Tips....

Hello everyone,

It is rightly said that content is the king as it plays a very important role in search engine marketing. If your website’s content is good in terms of informative then it is bound to be liked by visitors and result in lesser bounce rate .

Moreover it will attract more links when people will like it and bookmark it. From SEO point of view these two factors will help in ranking better on Search Engines.

For your business, you need to look where your customers are over the internet and try reaching them out there. Most customers do little bit of research online before buying a product on Internet, so you cannot ignore the importance of website optimization.

One way to provide regular fresh content on your website I through blog and write regular content in order to attract traffic towards your website. There are also so many useful directories and websites where you can submit your blog entries and RSS feeds.

Here are some tips for optimizing your website content:-

a) Write content for visitors and not Search Engines.
b) Keep low keyword density, ie; around 2-5% of page content.
c) Use tags like Bold, Italics and Heading for your keywords.
d) Do RSS promotion to reach out visitors on social networks.
e) Use viral marketing to gain more back links.
f) Always use all tags with your images.

Thus by writing good content regularly can help you in Search Engine rankings.

I know one example that proves your words: one blogger wrote some silly things but they were so original that in a week his blog was visited by millions of people daily. Make your content original, attractive, find something that worries people - all people.

Yeah, the content is thing number one here, as this is the thing people actually looking for,and if the content provided is genuine, original, relevant, interesting and at times even shocking, then it will be a real success!

I think we should always keep this in our mind - Write content for visitors and not Search Engines.
Right, visitors first then search engines.

Thanks,

I still wonder why a lot of people focus much on keyword density, and most of their entries are stuffed with keywords that are irritating to read because it seems unnatural. In order for our site to get viral we need to come up with new ideas that people will definitely talk about, as it can help more!

Most of your SEO efforts can be spent on page instead of link building.

Try including your keyword in all 4 of the following and you'll be gold
1.) URL
2.) <title> </title> Tags
3.) Meta Description/Keywords
4.) <h1> </h1> and <h2> </h2> tags

Those four things will murdah google

Yep, text content is the key to being found and being patronized.

I agree that your copy must be written for visitors, because when someone visits your website you want them to read it, enjoy it, and either contact you or order your products. Visitors don't do you any good if they click on and off your site and then forget about it.

That being said, writing copy for a website is not the same as writing copy for a brochure. Search engines look for keywords, so your copy must be written in such a way that it sounds natural, not awkward or "spammy", but includes your keywords as often as possible.
