The Importance of Quality Content Over SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is necessary if you want as many page views as possible from your targeted audience. Well, who doesn’t want that, right?

Webopedia defines SEO as

 …a methodology of strategies, techniques and tactics used to increase the amount of       visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of a search engine (SERP)…

The world of SEO lead us to dubious practices such as keyword stuffing, and SEO oriented headlines that don’t match the content. As a copywriter, I’m fascinated by the perfect balance of quality content and SEO.

To maximize views and conversions, we must weigh quality content higher than SEO. You see, optimal SEO often comes naturally when the content is good. Besides, it does little good to get customers through the front door only to provide poor service and low value products. That’s what SEO centered content gives us.

The solution is centering on quality, results-driven content. What makes me an authority on this matter? Well, besides my results and experience, it’s clear that Google takes style, tone, and quality seriously as the Google Developer Documentation Style Guide shows.

Of course, keyword considerations, meta tags and such should not be overlooked. Yet, many SEO concerns come naturally when we generate high quality copy.

High quality content that considers SEO is imperative to garner views and convert those views to results. Contact Me to learn more about how I may assist your organization.
