Blogging for many bloggers has become a business as opposed to a hobby. It takes dedication and hard-work to make an actual living from it. One of the areas I’m looking to improve in is SEO (search engine optimization). Just like anything, there is an art to everything even blogging.
We often hear the saying, “Content is King,” and it is definitely true. Content managers spends countless hours researching the appropriate key terms to get them or their clients to the top of the search engines. Companies even pay big money for this luxury and in a society where Google is a verb, I must admit that the investment is well worth it.
My first step toward a more SEO friendly blog is researching how to determine which key words are best to use. I know enough about the Internet to know that some companies already have some key words on lock down. This makes the work a little harder but now I’m looking at it as honing my craft so that writing SEO strong content is like second nature to me.
In addition, I’m noticing that more companies are hiring SEO companies to do the work for them. Too bad my budget doesn’t allow me that luxury but imagine if it did. Anyhow, for now I’m going to keep on reading up on ways to strengthen my content and work toward my goal of becoming more “Googlable.”
Are you SEO conscious when writing? How did you learn your techniques?
