SEO Article Writing Services: What Optimization Can Do For Your Brand
Strategic, search engine optimized (SEO) content can be found at the heart of every successful digital marketing presence. After all, if no one can find your website content, it isn’t adding value! Our content writing service accomplishes your SEO goals while providing natural opportunities for your brand to promote itself on social media through news articles and blog posts.
Why is it important to do SEO research before writing an article?
The data we gather from SEO research gives your article the best possible chance of ranking on the first page of search results that includes but is not limited to:
We don’t want potential customers to return to Google or Bing and land on a competitor’s website. We won’t get into all the details of optimizing for search because you can read about that in our SEO Guide which includes a section specifically about SEO copywriting. But to borrow from it, we like to point out the importance of SEO research:
- Who is currently ranking for these keywords?
- Do the keywords match the searcher intent of your content piece?
- Are there featured results within SERPS that we can tailor content to?
Why is SEO copywriting so important?
- It’s the easiest way to target relevant keywords.
- Great, long-form content will increase dwell time (the amount of time spent on a page).
- It brings a targeted audience to your site based on their search terms.
Should I hire a copywriter for my website?
Any organization interested in increasing digital market share should hire an SEO copywriter. Without taking SEO into consideration, it’s very likely that your website’s rankings are limited to keywords that only include your brand name. If you’re looking to raise awareness for your business, then you need your content to reach people who don’t know your name - and that means you need to hold first-page rankings for unbranded searches.
SEO Copywriting Service
We begin every website copywriting project with a phone interview to learn more about your business and the topic you’d like us to write about. Then we use any number of SEO research tactics to educate us on what else your target audience wants to know. We will analyze keywords and search volumes, look at related topics, find questions that searchers ask, and evaluate web pages that have strong rankings on your subject.
