|Effective writing, if applied correctly can get you indexed |
How does effective writing can help get your new webpage(s) indexed much quicker by search engines, and can boost your placement in search? Well, for starter, you are sending out a clear message to your readers & the crawlers that visit your new page creation, allowing a clear focus of the subject on the webpage & its purpose for existence. Good writing & laying out of your on page content not only can help you get found, but have you out-ranked your competition on the result pages of search engines.
It is critical, at least for now, in a time where Google's panda & penguin are on a mission to wipe out traditional SEO which spams the world wide web with links just to manipulate & boost website rankings in search. Your best bet at this stage of development for your website is to stick with content, content, and more unique quality content. Approaching this untouchable ways of optimizing your website & its subpages will have you worry free of getting penalized by Google, and attacked by its police force powered by panda & penguin :)
Please let me know if you agreed with what I said. Until then, stay cool, stand firm, and GOD bless ^v^
Welcome to WebmasterWorld!
I agree that good content is important but by itself it will likely fail.
Imagine building a great mansion deep in the woods and not building a single road or trail to it. It does not matter how great your mansion is, no one will visit. If you build great content you need to support it with backlink development. That backlink development can be as simple as emailing a few people or mentioning it on twitter. Really, really great content just needs a little push and it will virally grow and attract people and links.
That being said if you do not have great content then it is a very hard challenge to gain backlinks since no one wants to link to garbage. So to help backlink development you should have great (not good or average) content so it will be easier to convince people to link to your content.
I disagree that traditional SEO is about spam but let us keep this discussion focused on how writing can help with indexing and ranking.
|I agree that good content is important but by itself it will likely fail. |
First of all, I totally agree with you. What you are preaching is smart, and you should follow that blueprint every single time over any other option.
With that said, I've done a little bit of testing on this front. Obviously, I have not been able to prove anything definitively. But about a year ago, I setup one page websites. Each site contained only one article (that I wrote). Some articles were very long (2k+ words), while others were short (200-300 words).
Initially, none of the sites ranked for any of their target terms, and over time I kind of forgot about the test. But within the last month or so, the sites with the very long article have started to show up for some rather competitive searches (it took almost a year of just sitting there doing nothing for that to happen). They're mostly bottom of page 1 / top of page 2, but still, I'm impressed. None of these sites have any backlinks or quality signals at all, aside from the content on the page.
I would hate for you to think that content on its own is enough to do anything, because most of the time it is not. But I've done enough testing to learn that sometimes, when you write exceptionally long content anyway, that is enough to get somewhere eventually.
