Three features of good SEO copywriting
Good SEO copywriting involves many of the same skills as other types of writing. It must be readable, well-structured and free of spelling and grammatical errors. There are some other features that are more specific to SEO copywriting, and paying attention to these will help improve your copywriting.
1. Use of Keywords. SEO writing is distinctive in that it contains strategic keywords. These need to be included in your text in such a way that it reads naturally; articles with badly-placed keywords, or too many keywords, will deter readers from spending time on your site.
2. Creative thinking while staying on topic. Good SEO writing usually involves a level of creativity, as your articles are likely to be competing with many others on a similar topic. However, it’s also vital not to be tempted to veer off-topic. What’s needed is a balance between developing your own unique voice and delivering the content readers are searching for.
3. Writing for the reader. While all good writing delivers something that’s interesting to the reader, it’s especially important in SEO that you’re not tempted to write for the search engine rather than the people who’ll be reading your articles. Spend time thinking about who your readers are, what kind of content they’ll be looking for and how to hold their attention and make them want to find out more.
