The Perfect Recipe for Rejuvenating Your Stale Content

Canadian Thanksgiving, like all good things, came and went by too soon. It’s a time for being thankful for what we have and celebrating with our families. It’s also the time when we go out and buy the biggest turkey in the store without much thought about what we are going to do with the leftovers! 

Creative types will breathe new life into leftover turkey, creating soups, pasta dishes, pies and stews. Others with no time on their hands or less of a creative streak may just end up tossing those leftovers in the trash.

The Perfect Recipe for Rejuvenating Your Stale Content

If your content is turning as stale as that leftover bird, you might want to look into a few tried and tested recipes that will reinvigorate your marketing efforts and give your target audience something to get their teeth into.

Here are some ways you can get extra mileage and value from your existing content with the least amount of effort:

  1. Always stay consistent - So you started off your content marketing by posting a new blog every day, sharing it on social media and responding to comments? Now you’ve been doing that for a few weeks and the novelty has begun to wear off slightly. Well, that is understandable. Committing to a daily blog is hard work and could mean you are creating content just for the sake of it. What’s more, it’s a rather tough schedule to maintain. Why not create a post a week or even a longer, more meaningful post every month? Your audience will get used to your schedule and you’ll be able to write better quality content.
  2. Don’t try to be good at everything - If you are good at creating engaging tweets or engaging with your audience on Facebook, concentrate on these talents. If you are good at creating compelling blog posts or web copy, focus on these. Very few individuals and organizations can claim to excel in all areas of content marketing.
  3. Create one voice - When you have too many people getting involved with your content creation, the noise levels can get quite loud and confusing for your target audience. Try to use one clear and autonomous tone and style for your website and all related content that you create.
  4. Narrow it down and change your focus - Sometimes you might want to focus on the same content for a few weeks. This might be because you are publishing a series of advisory articles or leading up to a new product launch, for example. Other times, you might want to change focus completely and throw your audience a curveball that sparks their interest and imagination.

Don’t throw that all that wonderful content you worked so hard to create. Revive and rejuvenate it with some creative content marketing recipes instead.

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.

Use the Right Content Nails!

‘Cinderella' is the classic rags to riches story. Her sisters wanted to marry the prince, but just dressing up as princesses wasn't enough. Nothing the sisters did could make the prince choose them.

Here's how to use the data you have about your customers to make the content fit.

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.

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.

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.
