The Importance Of Content With SEO

We are not being overdramatic when we say that the importance of content in SEO is greater than just about any other factor that comes into play when trying to rank on search engines, especially on Google. Whilst Google never divulges the intricacies of its ranking algorithms, it has certainly made it clear, both by its public announcements and by the evidence seen by SEO experts, that it values high-quality content above all else. That might seem like a bold statement, but given that Google’s overriding priority is to provide search results that give its users the closest answers to their searches, then send them to websites that provide the best possible experiences, it is content that will ultimately determine if Google’s aims have been achieved. This is why Google’s insatiable thirst for original, entertaining, and informative content that provides its users with an outstanding experience when they consume that content has no limits. So, it is clear that content has a huge role to play in search engine optimisation, and what we are going to explore as you read on are ten of the most significant reasons why that is the case and why we can safely say content is king whenever SEO and better rankings are being pursued.

Optimisation Of Metadata We have been mentioning Google a lot with respect to ranking factors, and a group of optimisations which helps Google to identify what a website is trying to rank for is its metadata.

How To Optimise Content For The Questions People Ask On Google

If you having been following developments in SEO, and in particular what direction Google has been heading in terms of determining the rankings of websites, you will have seen that ‘user experience’ has become one of the primary factors they apply. For Google, it is no longer enough for a website just to have good information, it also needs to meet the needs of, and provide a better experience for, those who have searched, and then landed, on that website. There are lots of complex solutions as to how a website might achieve these aims, however, there is one simple, and highly effective, method you can try, and that is to answer questions. Questions, Questions, Questions When we say answer questions, we mean the questions that get typed into Google’s search bar. When searching, what many people do is, instead of simply typing in a search like ‘SEO Sydney‘, they will instead type ‘what is the best way to get SEO done on my Sydney website?’, or ‘how can I do SEO on my Sydney website?’. Within your niche or business sector, you will hopefully have ideas as to what questions your potential customers might ask on Google, and if you do, you are even closer to taking advantage of this.

Using Keywords Within Your Website Content to Help SEO

You may already be aware that having keywords in your website content can help your SEO, but what is even more important is that the content is used in the right way, and in the right places. It is not enough to simply insert keywords anywhere, and worse, doing so excessively can damage your rankings, as Google consider this to be ‘keyword stuffing‘, which is a big red flag to them. You need to get the balance right though, as what you don’t want to do is go too far the other way and have little or no keywords in your website content. While Google is very much against practices like keyword stuffing, they do need and want you to use keywords. They are an important factor in helping Google identify what subject a website is about, and thus allows them to make their search engine results more relevant.
