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.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions. Learn more about two new features of Google search that help users verify and evaluate search results.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.

One of the toughest things about creating content is coming up with ideas. You can research keywords all day long, but if you can’t come up with topics around those keywords, your content may fall flat. If your in-house copywriter is struggling to keep up with a content calendar, you might be thinking about working with a content agency. Use these questions to prepare for a meeting with the project manager or as starting points to create your own content.

There just isn't a 'softer' way to say this; it's bad. Duplicate content, as defined by Google, “refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content in the same language or are appreciably similar.” Google highly recommends avoiding duplicate content. The key reason is that the ranking of the page on search engine results may suffer. This means, your audiences will not find your content, and when they do, they are unlikely to consider it useful. Understanding how Google handles duplicate content can help you elevate user experience and create a better content marketing plan.

If you just keep churning out content without reviewing what you’ve already done, you’re missing out on opportunities to make your content perform better. A content audit exercise involves systematically reviewing what you’ve published on your website and blog. As you adjust your content marketing plan to your business goals, this audit can help you find gaps in your content and see what’s been successful. When reviewing your content, look for these things that can negatively impact your content strategy.

Search has changed a lot over the years. Search results are displayed to be more efficient for users. Users search for information differently than they used to. There’s still a lot that search can’t do right now. Google aims to change the power of search again with their latest update, Multitask Unified Model, aka MUM. This new update will expand search capability to make search deliver more accurate and relevant information in seconds. Here’s what your content writers need to know about MUM.

Refine Your Content So it Resonates with Your Audience

Many websites churn out content as part of their online digital strategy without considering how their audience will respond to the content. Contextualizing content is a way of adding value to the reader. But what does it mean to put your content in context? It’s a way of approaching content that considers the why and when of your content, not just the person who is reading it. A person who needs a plumber to fix a leak needs different content than someone who is thinking about how to install a new toilet. The first customer needs access to a list of quick tips to prevent damage until a plumber can help while the second customer may want to read through a detailed outline of updating a bathroom for aging-in-place.
