Writers, forget about Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you need to keep up with SEO changes!
Keeping up with SEO Changes
Below is an infographic from Fuzz One Media and it explains the new face of SEO. Review it and see what changes you may have to make to your author or writer website. Take it one step at a time so you don’t become overwhelmed. The bottom line is to produce well written and informative content that attracts readers who’ll eventually turn into fans and customers.
If you’re worried that you won’t understand SEO, don’t give up. Simply find the keywords that work for your website and incorporate them in your content writing. This includes blog posts and web pages.
SEO Best Practices
Make sure you practice ethical SEO. This means no cloaking links or stuffing content with keywords. The latter doesn’t make for good writing, and Google still frowns upon this.
Your writing should be flow and be natural. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t use keywords in your blog posts. Write from your heart and you’ll attract readers.
If you’re worried that your website isn’t optimized enough, you could hire someone to take care of your SEO. Just make sure you hire someone who knows what they’re doing. Or you could pick up a book or two from the library and do it yourself.
Let’s face it; SEO isn’t going away. It’s evolving and will continue to do so throughout the years. Do your best to stay on top of the changes. Don’t get caught up in the, “Am I doing this right or wrong?” You are a writer! Your number one priority should be to provide valuable content that readers can use to solve whatever problem they may have.
If you have an author website, your number one priority should be to keep readers informed of your up and coming books, book signings, and webinars. Remember, you can provide readers with sample chapters and or blog posts written by the main character(s).
Don’t fear SEO, even though others make it out to be some big scary monster. It’s more like the chore you have to do every day but don’t want to do it.
