Hey there content writers! Wanna know how to boost your web writing business and make more monieeeez? Here at Search Engine Academy, we teach a lot of web writing stuff. We also show you lots of off-page SEO things as well.
I’ve had a couple web writers ask me how they can write better web page content. I’m glad they asked! Here are some easy to learn, very valuable (for your bank account) skills you can integrate into your web copy writing business, umkay?
Keyword research – every good writer ( I know you are one of these) does research on her assigned topics. Well, do keyword research with some simple tools and discover “topics of interest.” This does two things:
- You’re seeing what searchers are interested in reading up on
- There’s probably a fairly high number of searches for that topic
In either case, this means the content will most likely found quickly on the internet.
Writing metadata – sounds scary, doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t. I ought to know; I write it all the time, and I’m not a computer scientist. This is creating interesting, compelling title and descriptions for web pages. If you get good at writing these, your web pages could be clicked on more, which could get them ranked higher in Google, seriously!
Optimized content – you could learn how to write copy that has SEO applied to it. It’s like killing two birds with one stone!
Set up Google authorship – you could set up Google Authorship for your client. This makes you a more effective ghost writer, plus it makes you look very, very Google-savvy, yay!!
Create G+ pages and communities – create optimized Google Plus communities and pages by writing up descriptive, optimized summaries of the pages to attract followers.
So there you have it…a few easy ways to further monetize your writing business. I teach this here in DC, so if you’re in the area, holla! I’d love to meet you!
Until next time, keep it between the ditches and don’t let your laptop overheat!
