Aside from your readers, you also need to keep the search engines and their algorithms in mind when writing your articles. You see, all the time and effort that you put in writing great articles will just go to waste if your target audience will not be able to find your articles online.
Here's how you can write search engine-friendly articles:
- Use HTML codes. If you're going to post your articles on an HTML website, make sure that you use HTML codes that will help the search spiders in analyzing your content. Don't worry as learning the different codes is relatively easy. You'll be able to get all the kind of information you need online in order to understand the process.
- Use latent semantic indexing technique. Gone are the days when you can use the keywords that you're targeting as many as you want. Today, as search engines become stricter when it comes to keyword density, you are now only allowed to use your major keywords once for every 100 words. But you're allowed to use words that are synonymous to your keywords as often as you want.
- Keep yourself abreast on the changes of the algorithms of search engines. Google and other major search engines can change their requirements when they are indexing articles any minute. It's important that you keep yourself updated about these changes so you'll know what you need to do to make your articles search engine-friendly.
- Proper placement. Search spiders can easily locate the keywords that you're targeting if you place them on the first sentences of each of your paragraphs and on your titles.
