Content writing is a part of SEO and below are 5 secrets to combining SEO with your content writing effectively to generate leads for your business and get more traffic.
So, let's get started.
Tip #1 - Engage readers right away
Grabbing someone's attention right away is key to an effective blog post. Any sort of content that you have on your website needs to be attention grabbing within the first few sentences. This is also good for SEO because when SEO crawlers scan your webpage, they'll make sure you have good keywords in your first few sentences. In addition, keywords need to be implemented throughout the entire article for good SEO. Readers will engage with your content more often and are more likely to come back if it gets their attention right away.
Optimal keyword density differs from page to page.
Tip #2 - Explain more
This is now your opportunity to expand on what you started with. Explain your topic further. Go into more detail. Elaborate! Include links to other credible websites to make yours seem more credible. Explaining your topic does require some knowledge so make sure you have done your research. Do your due diligence and read into the topic or watch videos about it beforehand. This way you will write with confidence, and this will be reflected in your content.

Tip #3 - Make it personal
Put links to your business projects page. Also, talk about your skills and expertise. This way the user can relate if they have similar interests. Relatability is a wonderful aspect to many great blog posts. Personalize your content so the individual can relate in meaningful ways. Effective blog posts are expressive.
Tip #4 - Mix it up
Try different blog formats each time. One month, post a day in the life, then try a How-To or a Q&A. Answer questions in the form of bullets, this presents Google with an opportunity to have questions answered which appear at the top of Google's search results. Or you can present a solution to a problem. Mix it up.
Tip #5 - Finish strong
Finishing strong is essential to a great blog post. One should wrap up all the main points at the end of the content or just have a strong finishing paragraph or a few sentences that sums it up nicely. This is a chance to unleash certain aspects of your writing that are more analytical in nature. The analysis leads to a method by which you can wrap up the content nicely in a few short sentences.
