So content is a big thing now in the search world. A big way that you can succeed in SEO is through content creation; writing on a blog, guest blogging, or any other means by which something you wrote is published somewhere on the internet. This seems pretty easy, right? Well it’s a little more difficult than it seems, because not just any content will do; at least not any more. You can’t just put out some content you came up with in 5 minutes, throw a link in it and expect to succeed in SEO. Google’s updates ensure that not just any content will do. Now, you have to create content that is totally original, content that people will love and want to share with everyone they know. There are some tips that can help you with this, since it is pretty hard to come up with a creative article.
In order to get the maximum benefits, an article must be…
This one is almost a no-brainer. Original content is favored when put against copied, or spun content. Make an article that makes people think in a new way, or make them think to themselves “I’ve never really thought about that before!”.
Make sure your content is relevant to your niche. This also applies to when you guest post on someone else’s blog; you don’t want to post something about someone else’s niche and then just throw a link to your site in. Search engines can see that the link you included is not relevant to what that blog normally blogs about.
Posting outdated content is probably the most ineffective thing you can do. Why would anybody read something about an event that they already read about 5 days ago? People are less likely to share your content via social networks if the information your content is about is outdated. So make sure that your content hits people at the right time.
Content that is catchy, funny, or entertaining will most likely get shared around on the social networks. Make content that has a bold message that might shock some people, or make content that is so hilarious that people will just have to share it with their friends. It is also wise that you make the title of your content fun and edgy as well.
That’s about all you need to know about making content that people will enjoy and will want to share it.
