What's the MAIN Goal of Your SEO Program?

It's a question we often ask our clients and we usually get some standard responses such as:

  • We need better visibility on the Internet
  • To enhance brand awareness
  • Drive more search traffic to our site
  • Optimize our already stretched marketing budget - spend less on offline marketing  
  • Beat the competition - our competitors are stealing our cheese!
  • Get more leads through our site

All of these are valid reasons and good objectives to run a search engine optimization (SEO) program. As we have seen in many cases though, you can drive all the traffic in the world to your website and still be conversion-deprived. That's just not any good at all. The one, overarching goal, therefore, that should encompass all of these is to have an integrated online marketing strategy with measurable results and return on investment. 

How do you achieve that? With consistently good content that adds value and connects with your target audience.

Building a Sustainable SEO Content Marketing Strategy

Let's ask a few pertinent questions here. Publishing valuable content is not easy. 
Does it take effort? Yes. 
Does it take time. Certainly. 
Does it require skilled resources? Of course! 

Is it expensive? Not if you consider the return on investment and the damage that poor quality content can cost you.

What is it worth in the end? If it is done the right way - it's worth more than you can count! 

Think about what a happy customer is worth. What is a referral from a satisfied customer worth? What value will you attach to a prospect that regularly interacts with you through social media and other online touch points, gradually progressing through the sales cycle towards conversion.

Are you likely to fail sometimes or not score as high as you want? That too. But as Jonathan Mildenhall, VP Global Creative at Coca Cola says, "If you don't have the room to fail, you don't have the right to grow."

At MintCopy, we want you to be more successful with your SEO strategy. We want your SEO content to fail less and win more. We want to help your online marketing efforts to get more bang for the buck and not fall easy and frequent prey to the almighty Google's changes and algorithm updates. Enough of that already! Adaptive SEO is not rocket science; it is a realistic, but painstakingly careful way of conducting organic search marketing for your business.

Do you want to know more about adaptive SEO and how your SEO goals and objectives can be accomplished? Connect with us and let's discuss. We have a team of highly qualified and widely experienced SEO writers capable of producing good quality, audience-focused, search-friendly content for your business.

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.

Modern customer expectations have dramatically changed over the past few years. Although the pandemic certainly influenced customer behaviour in many ways, customers were already trending towards transparency and social responsibility from the companies they patronized. Creating content that shares your values and mission can bring your audience together to support your brand. Here are some ways to create connections to your audience through content marketing.

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.
