SEO Copywriters: Why SEO Companies May Not be Responding to Your Queries

When I first started providing SEO copywriting services in 2007, I wrote about how I sent out a few emails and got work almost immediately (literally within days). This has happened to quite a few of the SEO copywriters who’ve contacted me since then as well, as the testimonials on the SEO writing ebook website illustrate (and yes, all of them are real).

This is what happens when you "wait" on seo writing jobs to roll in.
This is what happens when you “wait” on SEO writing jobs to roll in.

But, the opposite also happens. A little over a week ago, I received the following email from an aspiring SEO writer:

Hello Yuwanda,When you contacted seo companies for the first time, did you send along a resume with the letter? I’ve contacted 7 companies 10 days ago (with only a letter) and haven’t heard back from any. There are no typos in the letter and I’m really concerned that I’m not getting any responses, not even a ‘not interested’. Can you offer any suggestions? I appreciate your help

SEO Quickies: 55 SEO Tips Even Your Mother Would Love?

SEO Tips Galore!

No time for an in-depth newsletter this week because of the ebook publishing and writing tournament that’s going on over at InkwellEditorial.com. So, I did some surfing and came across this list of 55 SEO tips from SearchEngineLand.com. If you follow the advice listed, you may never need to come back here again (but I hope you will!).

Some of My Favorite SEO Tips from This List

#5: Be sure you have a unique, keyword focused Title tag on every page of your site. Treat every page of your site like it’s own unique little minisite — and optimize it accordingly.

#6: Fresh content can help improve your rankings. That’s because the more frequently you update your site, the more search engine spiders crawl it looking for the latest content. Don’t disappoint — upload more (Tip: Revise/update existing content if you happen to be short on ideas when you go to do a post).

#18: Don’t Keyword Stuff: Search engines look at how many times a term is in your content and if it is abnormally high, will count this against you rather than for you.

#26: Quality Counts! It’s not enough to have fresh content; it should be high quality content as well.

#30: .EDU links are loved by SE’s. I didn’t know this. Learn something new every day.

#32. Optimize for One Keyword Phrase Per Page: I try to tell clients this all the time. About half the time they listen.

#34: SEO is an “All the Time” Thing. It’s not a one-hit wonder, so you have to constantly be doing it. It’s what makes it fun, and a heck of a lot of work, all at the same time.

#52: Go Wide and Deep with Your Content Marketing Efforts. Something I need to do more of. Gotta get on that YouTube (video in general) bandwagon!

Any SEO Tips you’d like to share?

Until next week!

Organic Search Engine Results: Why They’re Important and Why They Mean More Work for SEO Copywriters

If your site is not showing up in organic search engine results, you could be setting your business up for failure in the future. This is a message every SEO copywriting services firm should be relaying to their clients. Following is  why.

Learn what organic search is (http://bit.ly/ceFork).

Organic Search Results Make Your Competitors Less Relevant

Consumers trust organic search listings. According to a study by Jupiter Research (a Forrester company), web surfers actually prefer and trust organic search results more. In fact, they are 8.5 times more likely to be clicked on than paid search results.

Following is some insight into paid versus organic search engine results from Forrester (http://bit.ly/7FJy), a leading research firm. Although these stats are from 2006, they haven’t shifted that much since then.

§  93% of all Internet traffic initiates with a search engine;

§  89% are first-time visitors;

§  99% do not search beyond the top 30 results;

§  97% never look beyond the top three results;

§  76.7% of Google users click on the organic (unpaid) listings first;

§  the top three websites in any industry earn 65% of all online revenue;

§  the top 10 websites have 78% more traffic than those in positions 11-30

The fact is, if your site is packed with well-written, informative content that helps a surfer make a decision, it will quickly evolve into an authority site, seamlessly moving up in SERPs (search engine results pages) and helping you to take advantage of all of the stats listed just now.

 

Search Engine Optimization Tip: What Is an Authority Site & Why They Do Well in Organic Search Engine Results

 

An authority site is simply one that has a reputation for being a “complete resource center” in a particular niche. For example, let’s say you wanted to explore being a freelance writer. So, you go Google the phrase “freelance writing advice” (without quotes).

 

The second site to pop up is Inkwell Editorial, this site’s sister site on freelance writing (as the graphic below illustrates). Once you get there, you’ll find articles on everything from freelance writer salaries (http://bit.ly/c83JZ6)  to article marketing (http://bit.ly/djfCXu) to freelance writing rates (http://bit.ly/abEB2F). So, a visitor may bookmark it to come back to later.

 

freelance-writing-advice

 

This means that the site will start to generate traffic just from its website name alone, and have a reaction like the one from a recent reader who found InkwellEditorial.com and remarked:

 

I stumbled across your site and I kept getting hooked, wanting to read another article, then another one, then another one. Needless to say, I’ve become a fan of your site and will definitely bookmark it to come back for more.

 

First, this reader found the site via organic search results. Then, the content “hooked her,” as she put it.

 

This is what good, informative (keyword rich) content does. It builds reader loyalty and trust. This eventually leads to brand name recognition and sales (something you can point out to prospective clients in a special report if you’re an SEO copywriter who’s marketing for more clients, by the way).
