Find accommodation in Wherever by clicking on Wherever map or active links. You will then see holiday rental apartments, villas and townhouses in stunning Wherever accommodation.
Let's suppose someone walked into your travel agency and asked for help. You would most likely ask what they were looking for. They would reply, "Holiday rentals in Wherever. What can you show me?" Would you honestly take off on spiel above? Can you see yourself talking to a real client face-to-face and saying, "We offer Wherever holiday rentals in Wherever and can find you many apartments, villas, and houses in Wherever"? I don't think so.
Tips for Writing In Natural Language
1) Vary your keywords/phrases. For example, if a keyphrase you particularly want to target is "14k gold jewelry" consider also using keyphrases like "14k gold watches" or "gold wedding bands" or others along those lines. This will give you a variety of phrases within your copy.
2) Read it out loud. When you read your copy out loud you'll get a better sense of whether it sounds unnatural. If you wouldn't say, "We make 14k gold jewelry and have made 14k gold jewelry for 10 years. If you need 14k gold jewelry just view our catalog" out loud, then don't put it in your copy, either.
3) Break up keyphrases. As searchers get more knowledgeable about finding what they want in engines, they use longer and longer search queries some of which just don't make any sense. For instance, I recently had to use phrase "real estate Pittsburg downtown" when writing a page of SEO copy. Since this search string was not easily worked in as that exact phrase, I broke it up. One sentence I used it in said: "When looking for commercial real estate in Pittsburg check downtown listings first for exceptional locations and prices." The words are still in same order with minor breaks in between. When you can't use a phrase "as is" this is a very viable alternative.
Keep in mind direction search engine optimization is taking. The closer you can get to writing in natural language, better off you'll be. It only makes sense to create a site now that will last through long haul. Especially when that site will have a better chance of favorably appealing to engines and your visitors.
