New SEO Writing Techniques to Drive Website Conversions

Don’t Overlook Rich Results for Your Content
We know, we know - you just got the hang of SEO and are feeling excited about how your website, social media, and content calendar are coming together. We don’t want to dampen your spirits, but there is always room for improvement.

What’s changed? Google is now showing rich results. These search results call out the ‘answer’ to inquiries for the user, without forcing them to click on a link. Weather forecasts, event details, schedules, recipes, instructional videos and other resources now appear directly in the Google results page for applicable search terms. Results from a single page or collected from multiple sources are highlighted and displayed either above website links or in a side panel.

These new SEO techniques don't mirror the drastic Google algorithm changes of the past that left many websites reeling with tons of content that started working against them. They do, however, present a fantastic opportunity for companies to take advantage and start delivering better content, today.

Here are 3 useful tips that CMI recommends you use to improve your SEO copywriting:

  • Research Your Keywords, And Beyond just the Keywords: You know what keywords and phrases you are targeting; now you need to find out what rich results are appearing on Google for those inquiries. Tailor your content based on the type of content you find and you’ll improve your rankings and odds of being included.
  • Go One Step Further: Simple answers are the ones that will be displayed in rich results, so move your content past these aspirations and increase the likelihood that your site will appear on top for more complex queries. That way, your content will be seen to provide something more than what users may already know.
  • Pay Attention: New trends in SEO don’t come with a warning sign for businesses, so staying up-to-date on changes to rich results and other SEO news will allow you to quickly adapt and enhance your SEO copywriting and website content.

Why Your Content Must Be the Burning Question for Your Audience!

Google is constantly adding search features that help users get relevant information quickly. The “People Also Ask” feature has been around for a while, but it seems to be gaining traction as it’s being used in more searches. PAA boxes are another type of digital real estate, increasing your reach on a particular subject if you can get featured as an answer to a PAA question. Make it part of your content marketing strategy, even if you don’t rank for it immediately. The results might be slow, but they are worth waiting for.

And Why It's Important!

Featured snippets on Google are valuable digital real estate for your content marketing assets. These snippets are quick answers to search questions. Although snippets are designed to provide answers for the user without having to clickthrough to the page, Hubspot found that content with a snippet had a higher click-through rate of 2x or more, making this search feature important to your SEO strategy. If you can get your copywriting featured as a snippet, it builds your authority and visibility.

Don't Rely on Endless Spreadsheets for Keyword Optimization

Phil Frost, Founder and COO of Main Street ROI, says, “Successful SEO is not about tricking Google. It’s about PARTNERING with Google to provide the best search results for Google’s users.” Google indexes information to provide relevant search results, not to make marketing easier. When you keep that in your mind as part of your content marketing strategy, you can use keywords to support your SEO strategy to provide engaging content that delivers value to your audience.
