Silverback Marketing has been honored to publish a number of posts that speak directly to ways you can utilize the content on your website to create a higher volume of traffic. Webmasters know that content is just one of many elements that comprise a quality page on the web. However, it is no secret that due to last year’s Panda algorithm via Google there is a premium on quality content.
Content is more than just the text that you write. Quality content is presented in a manner that engages your audience, often times in a visually pleasing manner. Images are an obvious way to satisfy this type of need. An option when using images is to use pie charts, graphs and other types of diagrams to highlight information you are presenting. Using these types of pictures is an easy and effective way to further engage your audience while they are reading your content.
The use of bullet points is an incredibly simple way to designate particular items of your content as critical items to consider. How can bullet points help?
- Bullet points usually indent the content you are highlighting, making it obvious to the reader this is content to pay special attention to and read carefully.
- Bullet points will contain either the bullet as shown here or numbers if the web content writer wishes to present his or her list in numerical fashion.
- Bullet points make it easy to provide your readers with lists, a style of content that many times helps facilitate comments from readers.
One more way to add to the flair and effectiveness of your content is to embed links to other pages on your site within the content. Do this in a manner that will benefit you in the long run by using keyword rich anchor text as the foundation for the link you create. The page you link to will possibly experience an increase in page rank as well so using anchor text could serve a dual purpose.
These are three more ways you can improve how readers and search engines view your content. You took the time to write it, make it an experience for your readers!
