One Brilliant Content Idea Can Go On and On and On...

Reach Your Audience with One Content Idea and Multiple Variations
When you are creating SEO content for your blog or website, you may be limited in terms of time and budget. Even when you hire the best content writer in Canada, you still need to run an efficient content marketing schedule. This benefits both your business and your audience.  The people who utilize your website want access to an ongoing stream of material that is relevant to them. Additionally, that information must also be compelling if you hope to inspire your users to return.

How to Build a Content Series that Engages Your Audience 

Once you have a stellar content idea worth expanding upon, do not restrict yourself to using it only one time. Instead, think in terms of a series of materials that leaves your audience waiting for more. By maximizing a hot idea and repurposing it, you could build a series that draws your users back time and time again. You can stretch one highly useful concept into several posts.

Consider these strategies for creating multiple posts from a single idea:

  • Reflect Your Audience: The media or content types you choose should be a reflection of your average user. Does your brand appeal to a serious crowd? If that is the case, then informative blog posts and podcasts may be the best ways to deliver your message. Are you catering to a hipster clientele with plenty of disposable income? Then, you may want to repurpose your content in the form of cutting edge videos. Under each video, you might offer the option to pay for more detailed content via paid tutorials or seminars.
  • Create Content in Installments: Instead of putting all your energy and creativity in one blog post, keep your audience wanting more by providing your idea in installments. Essentially, you will be offering content as metaphorical bread crumbs. By providing your readers with several inviting “bread crumbs” of content, you will continue to attract them to your materials. If you are marketing a new line of handbags, for instance, you could introduce the line in a blog post that highlights how the idea for the handbags was conceived. Next, you might offer a Q and A interview with the designer. This could be done in the form of a podcast, blog post, or video. Another part of the series might be an infographic depicting the evolution of each handbag from start to finish. Your last “chapter” could be a tutorial on how people can care for their handbags, or tips on different ways to wear them. 
  • Choose the Best Timing for Your Installments: After you have devised the outline for each aspect of your series, select an appropriate timeline. Is a weekly email newsletter your primary method of reaching your users? If so, you might want to offer the series in four, weekly installments included in each email. Make sure that you inform your users of the timeline. This will help to build anticipation and increase readership for each post.

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.
