When AC suggested “tutorials,” I wasn’t thinking, ‘Maybe I can show them how to better-direct Net-users to their online-content.’ My first thought was Paint.NET. ‘There’s all kinds of stuff I could show people they can do with that!” I thought. ‘I could explain how to … umm, you know, ummm … FOR FREE!’
But really, I don’t know anything on that you can’t figure out yourself; just go get it FOR FREE and “read the instructions” lol.
However, the process of directing people to your content—it’s very ‘symbiotic’ (i.e. I can’t do it without having given to- and taken from-others).
The first knowledge given/taken here is the importance of “keywords.” Though that term has a slightly more-specific meaning in HTML (Hyper-Text Markup Language), what it basically means is ‘words that people use when they’re searching for things in search-engines.’ You also need to make it a habit to read review so that you can increase your learnings. As most “search engine”-owners and webmasters keep up with HTML in order to communicate more-fluently through the computer, it’s good to think of the “headers”—the parts of the webpages that are not at-first displayed anywhere on the page.
Last time I checked, the typical keyword-communication was located in the ‘headers’ (typically between the ‘head’- and ‘/head’-tags at the beginning of a webpage), and ran, ‘META TAG=”keywords” CONTENT=”(the words that the webmaster believes people will use to find the type of content therein”‘ … but I could be wrong – it’s happened before …
If you’re using a blog-site like this one, Xomba or Helium, you CANNOT DIRECTLY EDIT the keyword-communication was located between the ‘head’- and ‘/head’-tags; but it is good to have some ‘keywords’ in mind, just in case the site’s forms ask you for them.
But how do you know which keywords are the best? Well first, the keywords you think of yourself are generally the most-applicable ones; but they may not be the keywords that people are looking for! To find the keywords people look for, I suggest The Keyword Tool.
Opening The Keyword Tool, you can either a) enter the keywords you thought of in order to see any synonymous- or commonly attached-keywords you might also use, b) (on the second tab) enter a page’s address to see any keywords it is using or might use or c) (through a link on the second tab) enter selected text soon-to-be on a webpage to find any keywords The Keyword Tool’s programming can find for it.
I usually use the third option, as my content is usually not connected to ‘an address’ when I can still add to it.
Finding- and inserting keywords in your online-content is a way to make it more-likely that `Net-users who find you are the ones by whom you are aiming to be seen!
I was unable to put in the ‘less-than’ and ‘greater-than’ symbols around the “tags” mentioned above. If you know enough HTML, you know what I’m talking about; if you don’t, review the links.
Internet users are notorious for their short attention spans. When a visitor appears at your website, you have only a short window of time before they process the content and decide whether or not it’s worth viewing. Keeping that in mind, web content is surprisingly difficult to write since it has to be instantly catchy- these tips here will help you figure out how to keep visitors on your site with effective web content!
Website visitors almost always find your page through a search engine like Google or Yahoo. They find your site using keywords, and they are usually looking for these keywords when they view your content. Keeping that in mind, always write your web content with specific keywords that will concern your audience. If your users search “dog training tips”, they won’t want stick around to read an article whose headline is “Training A Canine To Be Quite Pleasant”. They won’t even get halfway through that headline before they’re gone! Make sure you do your researching concerning keywords; know what keywords people use to get to your specific niche of web content and use them in your title and first sentence.
It’s key to keep your web content short and to the punch. When visitors come to your website, all they care about is knowing what you’re about and what they can gain from your site; if the content you give them is confusing, long, or difficult to parse, they’ll give up and go somewhere else where the web content is easier to interpret and digest.
This is really the key to writing web content; it’s not like a regular article that should begin slow and become developed. Web content should be loud, quick, and deliver instant gratification; short paragraphs and sentences sprinkled liberally with your keywords will do wonders here. Bullet points, top ten lists, imperative commands- all of these things will help keep visitors on your site! Don’t be long-winded or descriptive; that can come once you’ve built a loyal visitor base, if it even ever has to come at all. Combine the above suggestions with targeted keywords and you’ll have web content that will keep your readers on your site. A comparison can be made through the writers at the sites. Through this comparison, the finding of the right suggestion will be compatible for the person for write the articles.
The Internet is a strange thing; it rewards those people who write web content that can be scanned quickly and interpreted- they don’t call it the “Information Superhighway” for nothing! In writing your web content, always keep this in mind. You’re not writing the great American novel on your marketing page; if you are, I don’t think this article applies to you all that much. You’re writing a site that will keep your visitors from leaving, and to that end if you follow my instructions above you’ll be on your way to writing web content that will keep readers from clicking away and resulting in lost sales or conversions!
