Hire me to write your SEO articles?
I've been doing SEO writing since 2009, and my SEO writing company is busier than ever. That's because 95% of firms are JUST starting to invest heavily in search engine optimized content, and engagge in things video marketing, social media and mobile marketing.
What is SEO Article Writing?
First, SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. SEO content (aka SEO articles, SEO web copy, SEO writing) is copy that is written specifically to drive traffic to a website and/or blog. This is accomplished using "keyword phrases" (explained below). Following is an example for illustrative purposes.
SEO Article Example
Pretend that you wanted to have an old oil painting restored. To find an art restorer, you would probably go to the internet and type in phrases like "art restorer", "art restoration", and/or "restoration of art". These are keyword phrases.
If you were the owner of this type of business, you would write or hire an SEO article writer to write articles with these keyword phrases. SEO articles tend to be short -- 300-500 words. They can be longer (they are rarely shorter than this), but this is the average length.
In order to get keyword density* of between 3-5% (the standard industry preference), you would repeat a specific keyword phrase 5-10 times in a 350-500 word article. This will start to get a site ranking well (ie, high in search results) for those particular phrases.
Hence, when surfers type in a specific keyword phrase, your site will be one of the first ones to pop up.
Remember, surfers use keyword phrases to find products and services online. Hence, website owners want articles on their site with keyword phrases particular to their industry. If a website owner has a site full of good SEO articles, web surfers will be more likely to find their site online -- and order from them.
*Keyword Density: This just refers to how many times you repeat a keyword phrase(s) in an article. For example, if your keyword phrase is "art restoration" and you write a 500-word article, you would repeat the phrase at least 10 times in the article to get 5% density.
WHY SEO ARTICLE WRITERS ARE SO IN DEMAND -- AND WILL REMAIN SO FOR YEARS TO COME
Websites and blogs need a lot of SEO content (ie, articles and blog posts) because each article or post only uses one or two keyword phrases -- at the most. But, as web surfers use different keyword phrases to search, they need lots of different articles with lots of different keyword phrases.
This means continuous work for SEO article writers. Proof?
Internet Marketing: The Explosion of Online Advertising
Professional SEO copywriters (aka article writers, web content providers, etc.) will be in great demand for years to come, if the following is anything to go by:
BtoB Magazine's "2012 Outlook Survey" showed that online advertising is poised to see significant growth in 2012. How significant? 74% of B2B marketers planned to increase their online ad spending in 2012 from the previous year. This was the largest increase compared to staging events, and using print and direct mail.
