SEO writing or search engine optimization writing is the style of writing that many writers use when writing material for the internet.
You could be writing for websites, your own site or writing web content for someone else’s site, you’ll need to be aware of keywords and placement in the article.
Writing SEO text is all about telling the search engine (Google, Yahoo or Bing, etc.) what the webpage or article is about. It’s for the search engines and not human visitors.
Each page that you write needs to be focused around a key word. That’s the word which defines the topic of the webpage; it’s the word that people will type into the search engine to find information and hopefully your page. The keyword doesn’t need to be just a single word; it’s quite possible to have a keyword phrase. A keyword that is really two, three or more words long. It’s best not to have a keyword phrase that’s too long. Three words, is usually plenty long enough.
No matter whether the keyword is one or more words long it’s still called just a keyword.
In SEO writing the key word should go in several places, both in the page itself and in the information about the page.
For the page information it should be in the following (only once in each):
In the body of the page, that’s the text that people will read when viewing the site it should be in:
Every SEO expert you ask will have a different answer as to how much a keyword should be distributed throughout a page. Remember:
If you’re not an SEO expert already there’s a much better way to make sure that you write good webpages. That's to use Site Build It (SBI) to host your website and guide you through the website building process.
For one inclusive price they have a tool to help you with just about everything you need to do to make a website.
This includes the Analyze It tool which looks at each page you make and tells you what’s wrong with it. It’ll tell you if the keywords are in the wrong places or if you’ve used too many or too few.
The SBI way really works. Have a look at all these successful sites made using the SBI tools.
