Web Content optimised for search engines
Websites are all about content. Content is an asset to your business. Well written and structured content:
- Attracts site visitors
- Focuses on the visitors / customers
- Sparks their interest
- Draws visitors deeper into your site
- Is findable
- Is easy to scan
- Answer questions
- Is useful
- Drives action
- Delivers new knowledge
Golden rules for preparing content:
- Less is more. Be concise.
- Detail is kept at lower levels within your site (not on the homepage).
- Too much choice can lead to stress and indecision so present the very best options.
Good web writing is like a conversation that answers people's questions, lets people grab and go and
concentrates on your visitors needs.
