Quality content is a very important aspect of internet publishing that most people tend to ignore even after knowing it. But what’s more important is optimizing your quality content for SEO, especially when you are looking to drive traffic through your content pieces.
Your target audience cannot find your quality content piece unless you optimize them with relevant keywords that your target audience uses.
Here are some of the advantages of optimizing your content for SEO:
Adding headings and subheadings to your text – articles, blogs, web page contents, etc., makes it easier for your audience to read your content. For the same result, it is important that you break your paragraphs into smaller paragraphs that contain no more than 3-4 sentences.
The speed at which your page loads contributes a lot to how your website is ranked on Google, because Google prefers websites with a fast loading speed and has become an SEO ranking factor.
For a fast speed, your website needs reliable hosting solutions, regular website maintenance, optimized images (compressed images), active links, etc.
Many marketers don’t even try to optimize the Meta descriptions and lose the chance of giving a preview to the website crawlers of the website’s content. Meta descriptions contribute to improved click-through rates, thereby also reducing the bounce rates.
Meta descriptions need to be SEO optimized with keywords and restricted characters, most preferably within 160.
If your article is talking about other pieces of content like data, or statistics or even a study, it is useful to link to those sites as external links. But internal linking is important as well, ensuring that your readers are finding similar and relevant content while reading one.
But the linking must be careful and considerate because doing it wrong might lead to poor SEO rankings.
