Write for your customer, not for SEO!

We can never say it enough, texts should be written in a helpful manner. SEO-copywriting starts with the end user in mind, then make sure you use the right keywords in the right places.

Search engines are really good in analyzing your website content. In the early days Google mostly understood words and links. Today Google’s algorithms are pretty good in understanding search intent and knowing what pages to show and why.

Don’t make the mistake to use the same tools as everyone else in the same way as every other website. A good SEO-copywriter helps you to stand out from the crowd and rank high in search engines at the same time.

SEO copy, user experience and usability

Usability and user experience may be expensive words but we can’t stress it enough. Everything in online marketing revolves around usability and user experience. But what does this mean in combination with SEO copywriting? It comes down to the fact that if the text doesn’t match the search intent of your website visitor, he or she will leave.

Just like a first impression in real life, your texts are the first impression of your website. So make sure you have an optimal user experience by writing texts that address the right target group, use the correct terminology and tone and provoke the right action.

When is your text SEO-proof?

When is your SEO copy optimized enough? Google obviously looks at the recurrence of your keywords, to what extent you mention the keyword and in what places you do this but Google also looks further. Google knows when a text is well written and for whom you are writing by looking at the structureterminology and grammar.

Google also looks at whether your texts are complete, this means for example that you use synonyms and highlight related topics. Whether your text is SEO-proof is entirely up to you. Do you want to score NR1? Do you want your text to rank for 100 keywords? Do you want to collect backlinks? We advise you to write holistic texts that survive the test of time. That way you’ll have the best chance that both Google and your website visitor like them.

SEO copy, the search results and Onpage SEO

View the your result in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) or search results page as an advertisement. To get your website to show up in the search results optimize your “on-page SEO”. Your website has the following SEO elements: The blue link (your meta title), the green url (your web address) and the description in black (meta description).

The SEO copywriter pays special attention to these elements. Just like internal links. Are you paying enough attention to all these SEO details?

Contentmarketing and SEO copywriting

Content marketing, inbound marketing and SEO are terms that describe roughly the same activity but each from a different perspective. Content marketing emphasizes promoting content, inbound emphasizes garnering organic traffic and SEO has a more technical connotation. At Sherlock, we believe that SEO is all-encompassing.

No matter how you define it, at Sherlock we always consider the search engines when writing your copy. Whether your copy is for PR, social or offline.
