PostHeaderIcon 10 Tips For Writing SEO Friendly Content (Part 1)

Writing Tips SEO Friendly Content

SEO friendly content is content that is definitely desirable by every blog owners. The logic is simple, in order to your content can reach more users, you must be diligent to promote your content. And if you want your content to be reached by many users from search engines, write SEO friendly content then!

What should I do in order to create SEO friendly content that can keep users and search engines happy?

If it’s a question that you pointed out in your mind, maybe you are a lucky person because you are now reading one article that will solve that problem for you.

In this article, you will find some important things that you should know about how to write good blog posts, loved by your readers and at the same time favored by the search engines as well. Okay, here they are:

Tip #1: Make Sure Your Content Original, Unique and Informative

Although I say unique and original content, it doesn’t mean you have to write a piece of content that was never said by other people before. You may get inspiration from other people’s content that you think useful, but don’t try to duplicate it mostly the same.

One of the mistakes many bloggers do is copy content from a website, publish it in their own and add a link back to the original source. Adding a link back to the original source doesn’t make your content unique!

Matt Cutts said that duplicate contents do happen and 25-30% of all content on the internet is duplicated. However, it doesn’t mean you can duplicate other people’s content.

The point is your content should provide added value to your readers and duplicate content will not give that kind of thing. For more details about this, you can see the video below:

In addition to be original and unique, Google doesn’t need blogs that are not able to answer questions from it’s users, they will not index that kind of web page, let alone give them rank.

What they need is a web page that makes their users happy and satisfied with the information offered.

Regarding with this, I recently read a great post by Enstine Muki which discusses about the other side of how to get traffic properly.

The great points are your initial goals are not looking for a lot of traffic, but try to solve the people’s problems, that way the traffic will come to you naturally.

So, from now on you have to create a content that can solve the problem of your readers. If you have not been able to solve many problems at once, at least, try to solve the problems of one people first. 🙂

How do I ensure that my content is unique?

Personally, I use a premium copyscape account to check the uniqueness of my content. It allows you to see the text you enter is unique or a duplicate one. If you find your content is duplicate, try to change it in some parts to get 100% unique content.

Tip #2: Make A List Of Keywords And Key Phrases For Your Content

Keywords or key phrases are the words or combination of words that is used by users to find the information they need.

Then, what exactly is the difference of keywords and key phrases?

To make it simple, I will give an example to distinguish between those two things. If you create an article about lose weight, then the key phrase are “lose weight fast” or “healthy diet to lose weight,” and the keywords are “lose weight” or “diet.”

SEO Friendly Content

It’s important for you to make a list of keywords or key phrases of your content, because as you know that search engine spiders are sent out to any web page to analyze the quality of their content.

And at the same time, they also register the key phrases or keywords to determine what topics were discussed of a web page.

If the keywords you use can represent your content well, then the search engine spiders will be happy with it. The online presence of your content will be stronger and congrats! You’ve just created an SEO friendly content. 😉

Tip #3: Optimize Your Post Headlines

Determining a good post headline is very important. The term “finish all of your business before writing your post title” appears to assert that the post title is indeed important.

And in fact, there are many reasons that make it important though.

Besides being one of the crucial on-page SEO factors, well-structured post title could be a way for you to get more readers, to convince the user to click and read your content, convince subscribers to open your email and give a boost to the advertiser to advertise on your web page.

So, how to choose a post title that satisfies the above criteria?

Here some tips about how to create the right blog post headline:

  • Find out what topics that people want to know by doing your own keyword research.
  • Use Google or other search engines, such as Bing and Yahoo to find inspiration in order to create an appropriate title. Don’t forget to take note keyword suggestions that appear when you type your keywords in the search box. It’s your asset in creating SEO friendly content.
  • Try to build the best post title structure based on the two methods above. In order to reach more users, make the title as attractive as possible that could give a boost to the user to click and get your content.
  • Try to make your post titles less than 70 characters.
NB: There are some tips that you should know when write great headlines for your blog posts. Take some time to learn how to write great headlines.

Well, I didn’t expect it will end up with only one post. There is so much that must be discussed when dealing with it.

So, I will continue these tips in my next post about SEO friendly content. Thanks for reading.

In the mean time, what things do you know in writing SEO friendly content?

    I like the way you gave examples and Matt’s video is always a stopper for anyone to hear again, even if you have heard him once.

    Also can you elaborate little more about key words and key phrase, may be through one more example.

    • Hi Harish,

      Welcome to my blog and thanks for the engagement 🙂

      Yes, I agree with you. I also hear Matt’s video several times to better understand, I don’t know why, but I think, it would be better if I could better understand what he is saying.

      Okay, as you wish, here’s another example of keywords and key phrases: key phrases for an article on moving could be “packing and moving” or “loading a moving truck,” while keywords could be “moving,” “relocation,” or “relocating.”

      I hope this example can be useful for you. Thanks for adding your voice here, Harish. 🙂

      Do have a wonderful week ahead.

    Hi Nanda,
    Looks like you’re spot on with the SEO methods. In my experience, genuine original content is the best but re-writes are allowed as well. Sometimes a simple rearrangement or creative re-writing can be an useful solution for content requirements.

    • Hi Sarah,

      Welcome to my blog and thanks for the engagement 🙂

      Yes, you are right and I totally agree with you. There is nothing wrong with rewriting an article. Indeed, as you said, by adding a bit of creativity in it, boring old article will be a new article more interesting and colorful.

      Thanks for stopping by and share your thoughts with us, Sarah.
      It’s a valuable comment one, indeed. 😉

  • Hi Nanda,

    I think that as long as we are writing original content, we are pretty much safe.

    When it comes to titles, this takes some time for me. It must be congruent with my content, but yet a “catchy” small phrase that will bring readers in. It is worth the time and effort.

    This article was very informative, but the spider really scared me lol!

    • Hi Donna,

      Nice to see you here 🙂

      Yes, you are right about the original content, I have no doubt about it.

      I do the same with you. Sometimes I get confused when determining an appropriate title for my article. Indeed, it takes time and effort. 🙂

      Not only you, I was afraid when I saw it. But don’t worry, it will not bite you though. LOL! 😀

      Thanks for your comment, Donna.

  • Hi Nanda,

    It’s great to see that you’re writing about SEO. Organic search traffic is free and there are so many simple ways to increase it.

    Recently, I discovered the EMV (Emotional Marketing Value) headline analyzer tool on the Advanced Marketing Institute website. Once we’ve written that keyword-rich title, this tool will give us an idea of how appealing it is. Simply adding (or eliminating) a word to our blog title can increase the odds that visitors will (or won’t) read our posts.

    Another thing that you and your readers may find helpful is an article that Dr. Peter J. Meyers recently published on He analyzed the effect of Google’s redesign of the format of their SERP (search engine result page) and AdWords blocks.

    Simple changes that Google made (such as fonts) can result in blog post titles being truncated. Peter’s recommendation is to try to keep our title length to 55 characters. He did stress that the search engines will still crawl the entire length of a 70 character title but they may not display correctly when someone searches. (His article illustrates several examples of this.)

    I’m glad that I discovered your blog! I’ll be back. (Thanks for commenting on my post as well.)

    • Hi Sherryl,

      Welcome to my blog and thanks for the engagement 🙂

      It was great you explain about EMV (Emotional Marketing Value) with clear and nice. Since this is a new term for me, I am happy to have learned something new today. 😀

      Yes, it would be better if we make our title length less than 70 characters. As you said, if it is more than that, Google will not show our title correctly in search results. 😉

      You are very welcome, Sherryl.
      I’m happy to comment on your blog as well. 🙂

  • Emebu says:

    Hello Nanda,
    May i add here that Social media is having an impact on search results. In fact, both Bing and Google have admitted in interviews that their search results are positively affected by social signals, such as Twitter tweets, Facebook Likes, and Google+1s.

    Search engines are realizing that if people share your content that it’s probably pretty good, which means consumers can now influence search results with clicks, tags, ratings, and bookmarks. Also, since search engines are able to display results in virtual real-time, tweets and Google+ results are now appearing above all other content.

    Without a doubt social media is impacting how search engines are able to deliver more immediate and relevant results, which will only assist those businesses that are creating content that people love and engaging with them.

    • Hi Emebu,

      Welcome to my blog and thanks for the engagement 🙂

      Yes, I agree with you. Social media without a doubt had a huge influence on the search results. I feel it myself though 😉

      Thanks for stopping by and share your thoughts with us, Emebu.
      I’m sure many people will be helped by your valuable comment.

    Giving people original content and value through your blog post can be helpful through many ways through the all the new updates with Google. Marketing research is a key point inside of your blog posts, and using use look for about 15-30 keywords before even starting. I go through a couple of different keywords software, and making sure on my competition.

    I use a few tools for competition that Google has, and through other sources. Optimizing your title is pretty important and giving a good description for elements that you are trying to rank for. Thank you for the insight, and pushing this inside my brain a little more.

    Hello Nanda,
    A good content is always welcomed by both readers and spiders. As everyone just love to read and know about things differently. People make mistakes and copy content from other websites not aware of the fact that it won’t make you stand anywhere. The tips you have shared are very important if one want to grow the potential readers and convert them to permanent readers or subscribers.

  • Tony Sale says:

    There was some very useful information here, thank you. I was particularly interested in the use of key words and phrases. I’m actually a wedding and portrait photographer, so I imagine I should use appropriate key words for each page or blog post but them ultimately build them up to target the site as a whole rather than individual blog posts. I hope that makes sense, it’s just that at the moment when I do a search for a wedding photographer in Essex the search engine results show my individual blog posts but not my site home page, which is a bit frustrating.
