Don't Scrimp On The Content!

Bigging Up The Competition 1

Yesterday, I read a really interesting blog post on Search Engine Journal by Tom Demers entitled 5 Reasons Why It’s OK To Mention Competitors In Your Content. Funnily enough, this post struck an instant chord with me, as it almost word for word echoed a conversation I had with one of my clients a week or so ago. So, I thought I’d share it with you so that you can see just how right Tom Demers is about this very valid point!

 

As the title of the blog suggests, Tom’s post listed 5 reasons why writing about your competitors in your content marketing can be a positive thing; I obviously don’t want to go over everything again that Tom wrote, as he made his points very eloquently and you’re perfectly capable of reading it for yourself. Instead, I’ll give you Tom’s reason’s summarised and then relate them to my client and the answers I gave her.  Read More

Does content marketing work?

By | Content Marketing, Google, Search Engines, SEO | No Comments

Both as an in-house marketer and as a freelance seo consultant, over the last 8 years, to a greater or lesser extent, I’ve always included a content marketing strategy in the online marketing efforts I carry out, whether it be to benefit SEO, social media marketing, to include in email marketing, or just to engage more with the audience that hits the website I’m working with. At the start of my time in online marketing nobody called it content marketing, we referred to it as online PR, or just blogging, later it become more sophisticated with other forms of content being included and it becomming more strategic and in the last few years everyone’s been calling it content marketing.

What’s All This About Negative SEO?

By | Google, Search Engines, SEO, Thoughts | No Comments

I was planning to write a little blog post on Goole’s latest Penguin update and its influence on the good old backlink, but I’ve had one or two tweets in my twitter column over the past couple of days about the threat of Negative SEO so I thought, as the two are linked, I’d treat you to an article about that instead (with a heavy dose of Penguin and backlinks thrown in for good measure!). I know, don’t all thank me at once. Read More

Why Google Dislikes Blog Networks?

By | Google, Inbound Marketing, Search Engines, SEO, Thoughts | No Comments

This is the next SEO technique that Google appears to be going after (or has gone after big style in the last couple of months). A blog network is a group of blogs – normally bog standard wordpress installs, with basic wordpress templates and lots of content. Generally this content is generated explicitly for the purposes of creating links back to a website. Read More

Thinking about copywriting and SEO

By | Search Engines, SEO, Thoughts | One Comment

I’ve been writing copy for years, all my working life in fact, I’ve written copy for ads, I’ve written brochure content, I’ve written articles for magazines and newsletters (at one point I was a part time journalist), press releases and I’ve written a lot of content for websites.

It’s only because the marketing work I did so early on in my career that I’m a search marketer, without that focus on content I may never have had the drive to work with copy.

For years now I’ve been working with people who tell me text is about to be dumped from the internet but at the end of the day it remains. Copy is still an essential element of any website, text and copy are actually becomming more important when you take into account social media marketing.

I hadn’t really mentioned copywriting services through this website however after looking at my skill set I think it’s an important part of what I do, my freelance seo copywriter page is now ranking on the second page of Google, let’s see what a bit of focus on perfecting this page will do. Fingers crossed.

Good content is always the foundation to what I do, it’s what I’ve done all my working life and as such I think it’s important I concentrate on being a marketing orientated copywriting search marketer.

My New Poetry Site Goes Live

By | SEO, Thoughts, Web Design | One Comment

Ok in this masculine world of high flying business, it’s probably not fashionable to admit that from time to time I write poetry!

I realise that my poetry is probably only entry level amateur stuff but I’ve come to think that if I don’t put things out there for people to see, I’ll never be forced to make myself better.

Freelance SEO Copywriter

By | Content Marketing, Search Engines, SEO

Given all the changes that have been made in search marketing over the years, particularly the algorithm changes implemented by Google, having well written, informed and interesting content on your website is the single most important thing you can do to help your ranking position.

More than that, your content not only needs to be good, but it needs to be plentiful and it needs to be fresh, relevant and updated regularly. The market that your business operates in will determine how often your content needs to be refreshed or added to, but generally speaking, we’re now advising our clients to add new content to their websites at least weekly and more frequently if they can manage it.

This is where freelance SEO copywriters come in. We’re acutely aware that most business owners don’t have the time or the resources to update their content as often as it needs; let’s face it, most employers and their employees are already working at full capacity.

If this sounds familiar, then you need an experienced SEO copywriter who can pen and upload quality content to your website at an affordable rate and on a regular basis.

Freelance SEO Copywriters

Freelance seo copywriterSEO Copywriting is what we at GrowTraffic do and it’s what we love. Between us, we have written an awful lot of content over the years for a range of businesses and we are experts at penning interesting yet tailored copy that will help your website reach new audiences and grow your presence online.

All our copy is carefully crafted to help your website perform to its maximum potential; that means ranking you as highly as possible from the strength of the page copy alone. Ranking your page highly means traffic, which in turn means conversions for your business; in a nutshell, the more people are visiting your site, the more money you are going to make.

Freelance Copywriting Expertise

Our experience as Freelancer SEO Copywriters also means that we have a deep understanding of how great content works; by creating a number of features and benefits within the text, including subtly placed calls to action, we can lead the reader to a certain place or encourage them to undertake a certain action, such as purchasing your product or signing up to your newsletter.

Copywriting Guru!

Rachel is GrowTraffic’s Copywriting Guru and has an unsurpassed ability to pen neatly crafted copy that gets results, guaranteed.

Here, Rachel discusses her role as an SEO Copywriter;

Rachel Weinhold - Freelance SEO Copywriter“Copywriting is something that I have been doing for a long time now and it’s something that I love, but I decided a few years ago that SEO Copywriting is an area that I particularly enjoy and so I decided to specialise in that.

SEO Copywriting is slightly different from normal Copywriting, as it means that I have to craft my text carefully in order to meet a certain outcome i.e. getting the person reading my text to engage with me and go with what I’m asking them to do. That takes a certain level of skill that I like to think I’ve honed over the years.

The role of a Freelance Copywriter doesn’t stop with the copywriting, however; here at GrowTraffic we never just say “here’s your 500 words, see you next time”! Instead, once your copy is live, I will promote it via social media and other channels to ensure that someone is actually reading it and then monitor its performance so that we can improve in the future, should we need to.

Ultimately, our role is to help you grow your business online so, whatever sector you are in, GrowTraffic will always write the best possible seo orientated copy that we can. With your help we’ll become experts in the sector that you operate in, conducting thorough research before starting the copywriting process so that your content is on-message and on-trend.”  Rachel Weinhold
