Why You Want Good Article Content

Content is King

Quick non researched content writing has made the rounds with most websites. Then down the road writers realize; doing this doesn’t represent the content or author in the best possible way. That brings me to the phrase “content is king“, I’m sure it’s not a stranger to your ears. Guess what? It’s true.

Quality in article writing is your calling card. This complex but simple action lets people know what you are up to. Your visitor isn’t going to enjoy your personal website design if the content is shallow, they might even think why did the author bother.

Second, If you are trying to grow your website you risk the chance that Google will just pass you by. Your ranking won’t be anything to write home about, unless of course, you have picked keywords that have zero competition. Be honest, how often does that happen?

If you think about why you are writing you will find the most important issue with content writing relates directly to the reader. Wanting them to read the whole article which in turn helps them find the solution. This is a fairly simple concept but seems to elude many.

Also just as important, is getting to where the call to action is located. Wiithout this small detail you are just another information blog. Call to action helps the reader gain access to different information solutions along with product solutions. If you don’t have a version of the below red button you are missing out.

 

To help a reader get through the complete article and feel satisfied:

  • I have to understand who will be looking for my information and why. What problem am I helping them fix.
  • I need to write in a simple style where anyone can understand what I am talking about.
  • I have to make sure my navigation is clear and clean so they will want to take the next step through the site.
  • I don’t want them to just read the page they are on. How can I propel them further into the information?

Clearly my main focus with online content should be my reader, the people.

Quality content will not let your reader down, that is why content is still king.

Benefits Of A SEO Domain Name

Do you Know the Benefits in a SEO Domain Name?

Seo Domain NameThere are two sides of the street with SEO domain names. One group believes it will have a positive effect and the other group believes its neutral, or has no effect on SEO. My opinion is this, I think it does have an effect on how your site will rank. But in no way is this the one way your site will grow and rank in search engines. Having an optimized domain name is just another piece of the puzzle for your simple web page design, so why not do it?

SEO Domain Name

When you decide to put a website together and you are at the planning point, think about generating natural traffic for your site, the start of this is as easy as looking for a name that reflects the keywords your potential clients are searching for. Something so simple becomes important.

As searches lead clients to your site you begin to see the natural flow of organic traffic. Without an SEO based name you lose the extra traffic you gain from applying such a basic technique. Concidering on page SEO techniques is your first application of SEO web design, starting out with an optimized name makes sense.

Now if you weren’t aware of this technique; people sit at a computer and type in phrases or ideas they are looking for. When this happens you want to have a site that is linked with one of those phrases. You have searchers visiting your site just because your name is part of the phrase or idea they are looking for.

Seo domain nameJust like when we used yellowpages, which was our go to source for business and company information. Keyword or phrase searches is one of our modern day yellow pages, besides being an economical way of generating traffic.

This alone over time will help create links to your site. Linking helps you rank in Google or other search engines, helping you get closer to the first page. This is what you want. Natural backlinking is one way to give a signal to Google that your site is not spammy.  

You won’t be setting the world on fire from this, but with other SEO applied to your site you will be off to great start. When put together with other on page and off page applications of SEO you create a robust website ready for action.
