Follow the E-E-A-T of SEO copywriting.

For many businesses, SEO copywriting can feel like a laborious task. But with AI making significant strides in the industry, it’s gradually bridging the gap. It's a sigh of relief, isn't it?

However, it lacks one aspect, which is expertise. 

That's why Google has added another criterion to its popular search guidelines. It's now the E-E-A-T (experience, expertise, authority, and trust), with the latest addition being expertise. Google has shifted its focus to prioritise content that showcases the writer's expertise and knowledge on a particular topic.

If you'd like to position your business as a thought leader and win the admiration of search engines, these tips will prove helpful. 

  • Provide insights on your content based on personal experiences and reviews. 
  • Showcase your proven expertise on a topic for your content. 
  • Include your credentials or awards that justify your expertise on a topic. 
  • Ask experts within your niche to review your content. 
  • Be original when writing your copy.

Discuss your audience's pain points. 

Your audience takes pleasure in discussing their problems as they actively seek solutions. By adding these discussions to your SEO copywriting, you position your business as a caring resource that provides answers to their longstanding issues and also gains recognition from search engines.

An effective way to frame your copy while discussing their pain points can be:

  • Showing the general problem.
  • Enumerating the previously-tested solutions that failed.
  • Explaining why they failed. 
  • Offering a better solution. 

But that's not all. A thorough understanding of your audience's problems is key to crafting effective content copy. Think about instances where you've experienced a similar problem and channel it into your content.

Lastly, present it conversationally. Talk about it like you're right beside them, listening to their two cents. 

Rank for search intent. 

When you use Google, your searches tend to be specific, relying on keywords, correct? Similarly, your audience seeks content that guides them directly to what they're looking for, whether it's a blog outlining the best social media growth tools or offering tips to create a digital marketing strategy. 

It's where search intent comes in. An SEO competitor analysis can surely help. This shows you how your competitors rank for target keywords, especially ones within your niche, and adapt their strategies. 

Before writing your content, make sure you use the right blog post format. Decide whether your copy needs an enumeration or a full-length post to deliver the audience's much-needed answers. Also, this helps search engines make your content easier to index and find. 

Fix your blog's structure. 

No reader will invest their time in reading a blog full of words and blocks of paragraphs. Even from an SEO perspective, it might not be deemed worthy of visibility on search engines. That's precisely why it's crucial to enhance the style and structure of your blog's writing and content creation.

Keep your sentences and paragraphs short but meaningful. To enhance the readability of your paragraphs, consider adding bullet points, subheadings, and bolded headings to capture their attention. These elements not only capture attention but also emphasise your key points effectively.

Add some storytelling to your SEO copywriting.

Your audience can relate to a seemingly complicated discussion if you add a touch of storytelling to your copywriting. Personal experience with the topic or hearing someone else's story about it can significantly enhance the effectiveness of this approach.

It's also a more creative way to present your audience's pain points and help them solve them. The greater the level of engagement you create, the more appealing your business copy becomes to SEO and search engines.

Test your headlines. 

Are you craving more organic traffic and SEO visibility? Your copywriting headlines could benefit from some adjustments or improvements.

Whenever you search for a certain keyword, you often see results presented this way –title tags followed by a short description of the search result called meta descriptions. These might only contain a few words, but the way you'll play it is significant for your copy's visibility.

Include your blog's main keywords in the title tags. Keep your title tags and meta descriptions short: at least 60 characters for the title tags and 160 characters for the meta descriptions. 

Include relevant questions. 

While addressing your audience's questions is crucial in copywriting, it's important not to overwhelm yourself by attempting to answer every single one.

When writing copy for your business, answer only the relevant questions. Thorough keyword research can help you with this. Find out what questions related to your keywords make the most buzz and provide the needed answers.

This approach helps maintain a concise copy, keeping it engaging for readers and increasing its likelihood of ranking higher on SEO and search engines.
