What to include in a search engine marketing blog

Every blog is quite different. Each site has a distinctive set of goods and/or services to promote. In optimisation, the axiom is that ‘one size does not fit all.’ Nonetheless, there are some content-related tips which apply in a diversity of circumstances. This is important because the search engines have demonstrated they will no longer tolerate thin content. Users have always appreciated original and unique content. Google’s Panda updates have underlined the fact that the wishes of users will be increasingly enforced going forward.

At Searchengineoptimisation.co.uk we work to deliver the high quality SEO blog content which will benefit a site. It will not lead to positive outcomes overnight. However, it will help a site fare better in the long term. It will assist in the attraction of inbound links, in the pleasing of users and in the search engine results pages.

One problem newcomers to optimisation have is that they know too little about what constitutes effective content. Some even think any content will do. Such an attitude can lead them to attempt to compose their own material. This can be quite disastrous. Other novices lack the content related knowledge to get a decent consultancy to work with them.

A great way of assessing the potential capacity of a consultancy is to look at the quality of the content which they publish on their own site. Ideally, SEO news should feature in their blog posts and in their articles. It should show that they keep up-to-date with the latest trends in the search sector. If they cover the news properly, it should be possible to crosscheck some of what they have written on other authoritative sites.

However, news should not be the only ingredient of a blog. For example, other subjects should be included. There should be articles or blog posts which are of a ‘how to’ nature. Such pieces are often of great utility. For example, they can provide helpful hints about how to pick a decent consultancy. The sector is not regulated so it is critical to avoid black hat unethical companies which will only get a site into trouble.

It is also important to see how the news is covered. It should not be conveyed using large quantities of unexplained jargon. Those who use lots of jargon may do so for three reasons. Firstly, they may lack the skill to explain complex ideas using simple words. Secondly, they might be trying to conceal a lack of understanding. Thirdly, they might be too lazy to remember that they are writing for users. In any event, sites littered with jargon and free from glossaries should not inspire any degree of confidence at all.

Another issue is that the news should not consist of a load of facts without any interpretation or opinion. If a site does not use copywriters who can bring subjects to life then they are unlikely to give life to the site of another company. Comment stimulates the mind much more than dry facts. A few statistics can be included, but only when directly relevant to the matter in question.
