SEO for Writers

If you're a writer, editor, or producer in any way responsible for elevating the reach and recognition of brand's online identity, you're officially part of the "Editorial SEO Team." Congrats and welcome to the throngs of creatives also tasked with publishing digital copy that resonates with both readers and robots to successfully catapult the brand ahead of the competition. Yes, it's a significant responsibility, particularly in our globally connected world where the search engine algorithms are constantly changing. However, going into the process armed with a few vital pointers and suggestions can quickly separate your posts and your brand from other industry players. Here are six tips to master editorial SEO basics for sustainable digital traction and return on investment. 

1. Audience and How They Search 

The first step in dominating the search engines with your posts? Know your audience. It’s not enough to create compelling copy - you must strive to create compelling copy that your readers value. Get to know your targeted demographics’ likes, dislikes, and pain points to develop content that entertains, inspires, and solves pertinent problems for them. Check out online resources like Buzzsumo to brainstorm ideas and trends that your audience will read and remember.

 

Yes, audience mindfulness is important. However, when it comes to SEO value, it’s crucial to be mindful of how your targeted audience will find your content. What search terms are they most likely to use? Those are the phrases to use in your headlines, sub-headlines, and copy.

Once you’ve developed your masterpiece, schedule your publication based on your readers’ schedules to ensure they are online (think: lunchtime and consider other time zones) when it goes live. Of course breaking or trending news is exception. If you break a story, publish as soon as possible to be first to go live with the information.

Google News Traffic And Ranking Insights
 

More than anything, you can rank well in Google News by producing original, authoritative, and timely news information. -- Google News

Google News has forever changed how readers keep up with the world around them. Previous generations of newsreaders first had to pick up a publication and then sort through, page by page, to find the headlines that captured their attention (oh, the tedium!). Never again. Today's newsies only need to visit Google News to behold an aggregated page of multiple sources that are grouped by topic and displayed in order of the reader's personal interests. 

The journalistic upside to our modern news reading habits? Writers have more control over getting their pieces on people's online radars. The downside? Like all things Google News relies on algorithms and formulas to ensure they are giving the people what they want. According Help Center for Google News, the site selects and ranks articles based on numerous factors including originality, diversity, freshness, locations, and relevance.

Go into the process armed with proven tips and editorial tactics to command search engine attention and boost your overall traffic on Google News.

Building a loyal audience on publishing platforms requires more than typing out a few paragraphs on a topic and publishing them as a post. There are a number of simple, but easily-overlooked things that you can do to make your content more engaging and effective, without needing a techie’s help. Below are 10 points to review before publishing.

1. If It’s Bad, Kill It.

This is some simple yet not often-used writing advice from none other than Stephen King. Many people still don’t understand the most basic principle of the Internet: what you post online might end up staying online forever. The moment you publish something, people will link to it, quote it, and screenshot  it. If you’re about to post something that you suspect you might regret later, fix it first, or don't post at all.

The “real” cost to build a website was a complete mystery to us at the very beginning. Would it be $500? $1,000? $5,000? Or heavens forbid, more??

When we decided to build websites to experiment with generating income on the side back in 2010, we didn’t even know what the first step is to build a website, never mind the cost of building one.

We didn’t know how to code, so building a custom website on our own was completely out of the question.

We looked around the web and there were a few discussion articles about the cost of building a website. While those did give us a few reference points, they were focused on the costs of building custom websites.

At that time, a custom designed website might be in our future, but we were not ready for that kind of financial, mental and time commitments just yet.

After our long, bumpy journey of figuring things out (meaning, pulling most of our hair out, and feeling like we’ve become really angry people from time to time), we do have a few data points to highlight, insights, and self-reflections to share with you.

This is a Part 1 of a 2-part series on understanding the cost to building a website:

Part 1 – [You Are Here] – We share important lessons from our own trials & experiences, so you won’t repeat some of our mistakes (losing time and money).

Part 2 – What to watch out for when costing out your website project – especially if you are new to building websites. Written by an experienced web designer for beginners and includes detailed cost breakdown.

Business PlanAggressive entrepreneurs don’t wait for the next frontier to come to them; they get their first to sow the freshest crop. This is happening very rapidly with online businesses, as money-minded pioneers market and sell their products, build clientele, and reap major financial rewards from their own homes.

To do this correctly, a number of financial considerations must be addressed to reduce overhead and maximize revenue for your online business.

Website hosting and design

Finding a quality, affordable website hosting service is pivotal in starting an online business. Customer-acclaimed hosting services such as Host Monster, Host Gator, Yahoo Web Hosting, GoDaddy, and more are constantly reviewed on the web. The operating premise is to balance a quality service with an affordable price to support a steady profit margin.

Increasing human capital by learning how to design a website will greatly decrease expenses. While there are many firms that offer their design services, a viable option for design-challenged entrepreneurs, a quick online course can provide the basics and a few finer points to drafting an efficient, aesthetically pleasing site, and you may find that having these skills will open up so many more opportunities for you, which will allow you to have many more money making ventures. This is an affordable option as opposed to one that can cost up to thousands of dollars.

Business Leader

The content on your Joomla site is very valuable, but if you’re not using it in the right way then you’re most likely going to falter when it comes to growth. If you’re hoping to grow and expand your reach and make more productive use of your Joomla pages, then you need to understand just why your content is important and how to use it for maximum effectiveness. No matter the size of your following or your ultimate ambition, looking at your Joomla site like you’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company will go a long way to making your site work much more productively and effectively. You might not want to grow to that size, but if you want sustainability or profit, then thinking big will have big results.

Be strategic in your approach

When you started your site, you no doubt had a plan in mind for what you wanted it to achieve. Whether it was a vague mental image or an in-depth ongoing strategy, developing a growth plan is essential for your success. For those people hoping to use their site to make a profit, such as e-commerce stores, then a plan is essential. Without having a firm idea of how to manage and ensure your expansion, it is far more likely that your website will fail to grow. Ultimately, failing to plan is a surefire way to keep your website limited in scope.

Use the best in technology

There are literally hundreds of millions of websites that currently exist on the web, but only a small percentage of them can come close to being called professionally designed. The fact of the matter is that most websites are terrible and even domains of major companies or government branches can be horrible to visit.

If you want your website to look and feel like it was actually designed by a professional, you have two options. You can use the products or services of actual professionals, where you can find deals similar to ASOS Promo Code offers. You could also take a look at these qualities of professionally designed websites.

Efficiently Organized

It’s all well and good to have a well-organized website. However, if you really want to make your website look like it was designed by a true professional, it needs to be efficiently organized. The difference is in the matter of engaging the user’s senses in ways that matter; vision, sound, and cognition.

An excellent website never overwhelms their visitors with too much information on the page. The colors, texts, links, and images should be crisply presented. Any audio clips present shouldn’t just blare out noise in a confusing manner. And the contents should be arranged in such a way that users will be able to tell which is which without exerting any effort.

Trends

Your website should look good to you, that’s the first step. Look at your homepage, and through other landing pages and ask yourself if you’re truly happy with the way they look. Scrutinize your website and ask yourself a series of questions like: Is the layout bold and simple? Could more images be added to communicate the brand more effectively? Is the navigation journey smooth and straightforward? Evaluate your thoughts, and start a plan of action if you’re currently unhappy with how things look or how little traffic your website is garnering.
