4 Tips for SEO Content Strategy

Want to create your best SEO content this year? Try these four data-driven content strategies to get more traffic and leads.

There have never been more new and exciting opportunities to master your content and reach a wider audience than right now.

An SEO content strategy isn’t just a document with instructions and requirements. The best SEO strategies come from an in-depth conversation, whether it’s between a writer and an editor, or a marketing team and the people who actually write the content.  In order to create a strategy, you’ll need access to how your content is performing. If you want to scale SEO, you need to prioritize it.

In this post, we’ll discuss how to make SEO a priority in your content strategy, and how this impacts scaling SEO.

Tip 1: Include SEO as part of the writing process

Incorporating SEO into the writing process is a great way to ensure that your content is optimized as it’s being created. If this doesn’t happen, there’s a chance that optimizations will be made after the content has been completed. This leaves out the opportunity for writers to include relevant keywords that have search volume while they are crafting the piece.

Tip 2: Provide Keyword searches for content topics

Keyword research is a crucial part of the content creation process. This is an opportunity to provide writers with relevant keywords so they can write holistic SEO copy. It allows them to pick and choose the keywords they want to write about to ensure content is in line with SEO strategy.

This can also prevent keywords from product pages from being the focus keyword of the copy. This is done to prevent two or more pages from competing for the same keyword in Google’s search engine results. Finally, it ensures relevant keywords with search volume and user intent are used.

Tip 3: Provide Keyword research for omnichannel campaigns

When you’re creating omni channel campaigns, it can be a challenge to find relevant keywords with any search volume. It’s important to ensure that your keyword research is accurate, because if the keywords you use aren’t relevant, then your campaign will not perform well on search engines. Here are some tips for finding the right keywords:

1. Try to include additional longer-form content with keywords that address users’ pain points and that have search volume. For example, instead of writing “Find out where we deliver in San Francisco,” write “Find out where we deliver in San Francisco, California!”

2. We recommend internally linking these assets into the campaign content to overcome organizational created language. For example, if the user searches “find out where we deliver in San Francisco, California!” and clicks on your ad, you can provide a link directly to your landing page with more information about delivery in San Francisco so it won’t feel like an interruption when they click through from Google Search Ads (GSA).

3. Map out your content by topics and keywords in a spreadsheet so that you can better internally link your content to the user’s journey

Tip 4: Content and keywords should be aligned

Keywords are important—they help Google and users find your site, after all—and they should be considered throughout the entire lifecycle of a buyer, from when they first start searching for information about your product to when they actually make that purchase.

If you’re not careful, you could end up with a disconnect between your keyword intent and the copy on your site. This can confuse both Google and your users, which means fewer people will see and click on your content.

To avoid this issue, make sure there is no disconnect between the keywords associated with copy and different stages of the buyer’s journey. Don’t confuse your users and Google!

2018 Digital Marketing: Our Top 5 Trends

The new year has officially arrived, and we bid farewell to 2018. As 2019 arrives, we have noticed a dramatic shift in the industry regarding social media, SEO, and a variety of other spaces within the digital marketing landscape. So many digital marketing trends have revolutionized the industry which will carry over to 2019. Which methods and platforms are most popular among marketers that will transition us into 2019? Take a look at some of the most notable digital marketing trends in 2018:


  1. Artificial Intelligence

    At the top of several lists is artificial intelligence and all of the doors it has opened for digital marketing. AI helps in a variety of ways: analyzing consumer behavior and search patterns, utilizing data from social media platforms and blog posts to help with customer’s discovery process, and much more! A great example of AI is chatbots frequently used in customer service. Gartner shares that 25% of customers will use this chatbot technology by 2020, which is a huge jump from the less than 2% in 2017.

  2. Personalize Your Marketing

    Contents, emails, products, and more! Personalizing was an extremely popular trend in 2018 and will continue to make your company stand out in 2019. With the mounds of data we have going into the new year, the process of personalization with your marketing will be easier than ever. Data such as purchase history, links clicked, and consumer behavior all aid custom content. In fact, 96% of marketers believe that personalization advances customer relationships.

  3. Video Marketing

    Single Grain shares some significant numbers that display the importance of incorporating video marketing into your 2019 marketing strategy:–  70% of consumers say that they have shared a brand’s video
    – 72% of businesses say video has improved their conversation rate
    – 52% of consumers say that watching product videos makes them more confident in online purchase decisions

    This goes far beyond YouTube. Your business can create this type of content on Facebook Live, share on Twitter, Instagram, or even LinkedIn. Live video specifically is gaining lots of popularity and will definitely put you one step ahead of competition in 2o19.

  4. Social Messaging Apps11 Digital Marketing Trends3
    This shows exactly how important it is to make your business available across social platforms. Similar to chatbots, your customer service team being available on these popular social messaging platforms will help increase customer loyalty by adding value to their experience with your business. Being easily accessible will only increase your success in 2019.
  5. Micro-Moments

    As termed by Google, micro-moments are a brand new consumer behavior. On average, people spend 3 hours and 35 minutes a day on their smartphones. This means that is more important than ever to have a clear and concise message to your consumer at the right time in the right place. More so, this must happen in a matter of seconds, or your potential consumer will lose interest. People prepare for every instance big or small; no one has time for surprises anymore. A great example of this is a restaurant having their menu, vegan options, wait-time, and other common queries all available when requested on a search engine.

4 Digital Marketing Trends to Pay Attention to in 2018

The scope of the digital marketing industry is constantly changing, so being able to adapt to these changing trends is a must. So far in 2017 we have seen new technologies like the IPhone X, Google Home, and other innovative products that continue to change the dynamic of marketing. Listed below are some digital marketing trends that organizations need to watch out for as we approach 2018.

1. Voice Optimization
With technologies like Siri, Google Home, and the Amazon Echo becoming popular, marketers must understand the importance of optimizing content for voice search queries. According to Google, “in 2016 more than 20 percent of online searches were conducted through voice search. And by 2020 that number is expected to increase to 50 percent.” Therefore, with an increasing number of voice searches, optimizing for longer keyword phrases and “conversational language” is an SEO strategy that should be implemented moving forward.

2. Instagram’s Value Increasing
The continued growth of Instagram is a trend that all marketers should be paying attention to. This year Instagram announced that “about 800 million users are active on the platform each month.” They also noted that their updated story feature is now “more popular than Snapchat.” Because of their focus on images/videos and appeal to younger generations, it’s no surprise that this platform continues to gain popularity. Some marketers like Deep Patel even believe that Instagram is “poised to become the go-to channel for brands interested in social media marketing.”

3. Twitter on the Decline
Contrary to Instagram’s continued growth, Twitter is a social media platform that has seen a decline in activity so far in 2017. It appears as if Twitter has put little effort towards their advertising platform compared to their wants of acquiring more users. Moreover, advertisers have allocated more time and money to other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat as a result. In the end, this trend of decline is expected to continue for Twitter and according to Patel, Twitter is “dying a quiet death.”

4. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Messaging
Although artificial intelligence (AI) exists today, it’s future implications on digital marketing can’t be ignored. According to the Entrepreneur article, Deep Patel mentions how “artificial intelligence is taking over website messaging.” More and more businesses are now utilizing AI live chat programs to communicate with their consumers. Essentially, as artificial intelligence (AI) continues to evolve with messaging platforms, marketers must be able to adapt and learn how to most effectively communicate with consumers online.
