Creating content for your website is not easy. There are several hurdles you have to jump to make it successful from being creative to optimising the content for search engines such as Google to researching the subject. In this blog, I will take you through the different challenges that you may face.
Within the world of content writing, you need to know what you’re writing about. If you don’t know the details, you will not be providing authoritative information and visitors, and search engines will skip by your page/post/blog. You will need to know about the business, inside and out, the details of the services they provide or the products they sell as well as contact details.
Do your research wherever you can. Look into the different skills involved or find out about the products and its advantages. Compare these to competitors. Your aim primarily is to encourage the visitor into buying your product or using your services.
This means that you should write in a way that the audience will easily interact with. For example, if you’re writing a website for a nursery, write in an easy to understand way so that it is relatable to the nursery itself. On the other hand, if you’re writing for a legal company, you should write in their context, using business and legal terms/phrases/words.
Your content will need to involve technical writing or industry expertise so that written content provides detailed information, knowledge on the subject for your readers. In this field, you must educate your audience about the topic, product and services, while retaining their curiosity,
Mark sure all spelling correct, along with the punctuation. If you’re unsure, make sure you look it up before publishing. Being creative is important but good spelling and grammar are arguably more so.
Search Engine Optimisation is key. The content you write will be rated by search engines such as Google. Google does this by sending visitors to your site and analysing how long they stay on the website with any interaction. If these visitors stay and engage, it means they succeeded – the users search, and intent was matched well. This is then used for the next searches performed by Googles users.
This means that you need to be providing unique answers, information or products that match your chosen terms that visitors read, click on or purchase
Using content and keywords/keyphrases can really help your website climb up the search ladder. For example, for our website, we will use ‘Website Design’ or ‘Social Media Management’ wherever we can, along with the location. We also post information about these topics that we hope is interesting. This helps Google understand the intent and where relevant users are located.
Go Back Over and Polish
Once you are finished, you should go back over your content to see if there is anything you can tweak or alter to improve it. Whether it’s for SEO or Spelling/Grammar, this is essential. Relevance to a reader is also vital, so this is another reason to go over your content once, twice or three times!
Another good idea would be to get someone else to read through it to get another opinion.
