keyphrase or keyword group

7. Optimisation, SEO Content Positioning and Interlinking

Once the content is written and the language, correct keywords and keyphrases in place, then CTAs and clickable H1 titles can be added. Content is now ready to be added to the site.

In practice what this means is, which keyphrase or keyword group is this content supporting?

If so, what internal links to which hub need to be created? How are we going to use imagery or video to support the strength of our content?

How are we going to use code/HTML, to further optimise and support what our content is selling and how this page is supporting the overall optimisation of the site’s web architecture.

From content writer to content optimisation

To talk about writing optimised content, or content for SEO is to offer only half the overall task. This means that the webpage is taken from the content writer and given to the SEO team.

They look through the content and the use of code and ensure that both correlate with the overall targets of a high Google ranking for a particular keyword.

SEO experts look at how the content logically fits into the overall architecture of the website. It is impossible to optimise content fully without a knowledge of code and the website as an entirety.

This is the most important part of the process of adding content to a website, and it is often the reason why websites that add large quantities of content often fall in the rankings

We invariably do this in batches of five or 10 pages, where the website has clear hub pages interlinking to each other with all roads leading to Rome i.e. the supported keyword group or contact page.

Multi Formats

What format should your content appear in?
The majority of websites have HTML, supported with other formats i.e. PDF.

It would be an idea to have downloadable brochures or downloadable printable pages. Google clearly states and shows the duplicate or very same content displayed in other formats such as PDF, Word document, Excel, except are counted as additional pages.

Could these formats be used to quickly double the size of the website, create more pages that are searchable and findable within Google’s index, be downloadable, subscribe to, or emailed in paper format for customers to print and consider?
