The Answer To Life, The Universe, And External Links

Posted by:

Article writing services, such as my own, are constantly reminding website publishers and online businesses of the importance of getting good quality web content, and as many external links as possible. But how exactly does writing articles for your website help to create external links?

There are many ways of getting these external links, or votes of confidence in your site, and writing good quality articles is only one way of achieving this. A quick search on Google or any other ...

Four Ways To Get Your SEO Articles Working Harder

Posted by:

How many articles and web pages does it take to hold a top ranking position on the major search engines?

Let’s say you write 2 articles per week. Enough? How about 10? 50? 100?

The truth is that there are four main factors which affect how successful web content and SEO articles actually are:

1. Appropriate keyword density. This doesn’t mean bloating your articles and pages with keywords, not stuffing them full of semantically identical words and phrases either, but using enough contextually ...

Guaranteed Google Position And A Left Handed Shrimp Peeler

Posted by:

There are over eight million results on Google for the search ‘guaranteed Google first page’, with the vast majority of these sites stating categorically that they can help you achieve this placement.

Don’t believe them.

To start with, only ten of these eight million websites have achieved that position themselves. That’s only slightly more than a 0.0001% success rate. Not a brilliant start.

But the truth is that no one can guarantee you a first place, or a first page position. Certainly there ...

LSI – It’s About Language, Not Semantics

Posted by:

I had an odd request recently from someone who claimed to be an SEO expert, and wanted me to write some articles for him.

He apparently knew all about Google’s Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI), and as a result had kindly produced his key phrase, along with several direct equivalent phrases.

I can’t tell you exactly what they were of course, but if you imagine an office chair being described as office seating, office chairs, office stools, and so forth you might get ...

A Writer’s Foibles & Pet Hates

Posted by:

Every writer has at least one pet hate, and one foible – what is yours?

I have a writer friend who has always had a special hatred for those who qualify an absolute, such as suggesting that something is ‘almost unique’ or ‘almost new’. Naturally, as frequently argues, a thing is either unique, or it is not, but it can never be almost unique; similarly, a thing is either new, or it is not, but there can be no room for ...

Summary: The Linguisticator is a tool which will help to improve the readability of your writing, improve the quality of your writing, and reduce weak or complicated writing – all with a single click, and at half the price of tools which can only do half as much.

First of all – I make no apologies for the appalling name!

Why Writers Are Like A Nice Cup Of Tea

Posted by:

I simply can’t work without a cup of tea.

It’s the fuel which keeps me going. Admittedly, I probably drink far too much of it, which is why I regularly have to dash to the bathroom. But I think it’s more than just a drink to fuel my creativity.

I’m sure my cup of tea holds magic powers; all that Brownian motion going on in there, all those little molecules bouncing off each other – every now and again, some escaping, wafted ...

Beat Writer’s Block By Being Rude & Prejudiced

Posted by:

Writer’s block getting you down? Running out of ideas to kick start your motivation? Need something to get rid of that blank white screen in front of you?

I’m frequently faced with this problem, and I know I’m not alone. Like most other writers I have tried a number of different techniques, from stream of consciousness writing to getting some thoughts onto the paper the night before so that the day never starts with a blank sheet.

But I recently came across ...

The Truth About The Keywords Meta Tag (Or How To Confuse Your SEO Expert)

Posted by:

To meta tag, or not to meta tag – that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous search results positions, or take arms against a sea of competitors and by outranking, beat them to page 1 of Google.

Unfortunately, it seems that there is huge division when it comes to one specific meta tag – the keyword meta tag. A brief search on the internet reveals a wealth of SEO ‘experts’ ...

The Most Forgotten Website Ranking Optimization

Posted by:

You shouldn’t really have to think about. But what is the most important kind of optimization which you should employ in your websites, and into website content?

All too often I see websites and articles stuffed with keywords and key phrases, semantic language strewn throughout each clause, with barely pause for breath. Surprisingly these do often work their way up the search engine results, but they’re missing a trick.

Ask yourself this – is it more important to entice a thousand visitors ...
