SEO Web Content: Good Writing, Good Business

Written by Joel Walsh

There's a deadly myth about search engine optimization and writing forrepparttar web: that good SEO and good writing don't go together.

As a website copywriter, I hear this myth repeated back to me allrepparttar 150035 time by new clients and prospects. "Don't bother search-engine-optimizingrepparttar 150036 content," they say. "Just make sure it is well written andrepparttar 150037 keywords will flow naturally intorepparttar 150038 content." Or, they repeatrepparttar 150039 words of so many self-styled gurus: "donít write forrepparttar 150040 search engines, write forrepparttar 150041 people who will be reading what you write."

If you're one ofrepparttar 150042 people who believe there's a conflict of interest between search engines and humans, you're operating under two misconceptions:

* Misconception 1: you know more about what people want to read onrepparttar 150043 web thanrepparttar 150044 search engines do.

* Misconception 2: you or your writer will just naturally writerepparttar 150045 content that people or search engines want, without consciously trying to meet their demands.

Why Search Engines Know More about Your Website Visitors than You

"I want a well-written web page, not a list of keywords." It frightens me a bit when I hear this, since it demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what search engines do.

A search engine is not simply a massive find function, likerepparttar 150046 one inrepparttar 150047 "Edit" menu of Microsoft applications. It does not just pull up any page that hasrepparttar 150048 keyword in it X number of times. If it did, all pages that show up on search engine results would simply contain a list ofrepparttar 150049 keywords.

Ultimately, writing forrepparttar 150050 search engines means writing for web surfers. Think about it: services like Google thrive on giving peoplerepparttar 150051 pages they want to read. If they consistently failed to give people what they wanted, people would stop using them.

What Your Website's Visitors Want to Read

Most ofrepparttar 150052 time, people don't want to read onrepparttar 150053 web. Reading on a screen hurtsrepparttar 150054 eyes. It doesn't help that a lot of web pages make it harder with text that's too small, backgrounds that are colored rather than white, and lots of extraneous graphics.

Besides, when it comes to reading matter, there is an overabundance of choice onrepparttar 150055 web, more than any library on earth. Of that, an unfortunate amount isnít worth reading. Time must be rationed.

In fact, people treat a web page much as a search engine does: they scan it. In particular, they scan it forrepparttar 150056 keywords they entered intorepparttar 150057 search engine. If they arrived via a link from another website, they are still looking for words and phrases related to their interest--which are generallyrepparttar 150058 same asrepparttar 150059 keywords people enter into search engines.
