If you’ve had a blog or website for very long, by now you probably know 2 important things about search engine optimization:
- a lot of keywords that seem perfect are too competitive, so they don’t bring in much traffic
- loads of visitors mean absolutely nothing without conversions
The trick to a successful website is twofold: first, you need to attract plenty of visitors, and second, you have to convince them to convert into readers, subscribers, and buyers. With the right strategy, you can achieve both goals and make your SEO do double-duty. The key is to use long-tail keywords.
Thanks to Google’s Panda and Penguin updates, getting your blog to appear on the first page of search results is trickier than ever. Building links is frowned upon, but you still need links to rank well. So what kind of link building strategy can you use to get the high-quality links you need without incurring the wrath of the Google gods?

Effective online marketing starts with thorough keyword research. The right keywords help you attract more visitors, make more sales, and rank higher and appear more often in search engine results.
But knowing the keywords your prospects use to find you online is more than just good SEO — it’s also good market research. By learning what your target market is looking for and what kind of language they use to find it, you can create products and content that are more attractive to them and that truly deliver what they want. That leads to a better reputation and more traffic and customers.
If you’re debating between outsourcing content creation and getting it all done in-house, you have to know the pros and cons of each situation to make the best decision for your investment. Consider these advantages of using an article or blog writing service to help you create the unique content your customers love.
