The days of creating a website and just leaving it sitting there are long over. For anyone who wants to rank well in Google there’s really only one choice: start creating high-quality, relevant & (most importantly!) original content for your website – and the tough part is, you have do this on a consistent, regular basis (no skimping folks!)
With their Panda, Penguin and other updates in recent months, Google have wiped out almost all of the sneaky underhanded techniques formerly used to boost a website’s ranking – these are the “black hat” techniques often peddled by guys promising things like: “I’ll get you to #1 on Google in 1 week if you give me $1000”. This type of stuff just doesn’t work any more – Google have got too smart for it, which is a good thing!
Engage with your customers… or else! *shakes fist*
So Google’s pulled the rug out from under the feet of all those “black hat” SEO guys – but why is this a good thing? Well, it forces companies to be honest with their customers and to really engage with them. This means giving the customers what they are actually interested in – topical, relevant content that is of use to them. Once you do that, the customer will see that you are trying to provide them with something of value – and they will return for more! On top of that, customers are much more likely to spread the word to their friends and colleagues – good word-of-mouth is super-valuable!
So how do you go about providing this content? And how much should you be creating? Well, the simplest way to do is to just sit down and write something (duh!). It should be of interest to you website visitors: important news, changes to your services, articles about interesting places that they might like, special offers, “how-to” guides,… as long as your customers finds it useful or entertaining then you’re good. Two articles per week is usually a good starting position – one posted on Monday, the other towards the end of the week.
But there’s a Problem
Yup, there’s always one
You’re busy running your company and don’t have the time or energy to spend time writing like this on a regular basis (remember: 2 articles per week minimum). Sure, you could take a chunk out of your week and spend it writing something that you hope will generate loads of viral attention. But then who’s going to be doing your job while you’re typing? Eek!
(Oh thank goodness!)
