How does content and SEO fit together?

Posted on March 3, 2010


Many people know that content is important for SEO, but remain doubtful about how and why. This may be a reason why web writing is relatively neglected and often poorly carried out. Using professional SEO copywriters may be seen as an unnecessary expense due to a lack of understanding of just how vital the content of a website can be.

Attracting visitors is something a website needs to do, and this means providing all those who discover it with something worth reading. Without this, SEO alone cannot help. Once meaningful and useful text has been created, knowledge of SEO can be used to enhance this by placing suitable keywords in the most effective positions on the page.

When users enter queries into search engines, the words and phrases are taken and matched against those appearing on web pages. If the keywords people would generally use to find what a site offers are not actually present on its pages, then the site will not show up in search results. Certain parts of a page, such as the title, are given more weight by search engines, so placing keywords in those positions increases the chances of being found.

SEO is also about building links with other highly-regarded sites, and this is more likely to happen if content is of good quality and seen as a valuable resource. In the UK copywriters with the necessary skills are available to create such content, and hiring professionals rather than muddling through oneself can greatly increase a website’s success.
