Seo Article Writing: How to Write a Search Engine Friendly Article

Jul 17, 2008
Think seo article writing is beyond you or that you need to be a seo expert to get high rankings with your next article?

Think again. Believe it or not writing an article that's search engine friendly isn't rocket science but there are some rules you need to follow to get the best results.

Here are some tips you need to remember for your next seo article...

1. Although the idea of writing a seo article is to get high ranking in the search engines and free traffic to your website you should still remember that real people are going to be reading your article.

Think about it this way if I read your article and its complete gibberish with keywords throw in here and there, am I really going to want to click through to your site and take a look at what you're trying to sell me on? I doubt it?

2. Put your main keywords at the very start of your articles headline. This is useful for two reasons it helps the search engines to know what the articles about and also your reader. People have become very selective in what they read online. If I'm looking for an article on "Dog Food" and I see it easily in the article title I'm probably going to read it.

But if your article title is cryptic or misleading I'll probably just move on to the next thing in the search engine results instead.

3. Make a list of other keywords related to your main one and sprinkle these through out your article. For example if I read an article on "Dog food" and it constantly uses the same keyword over and over again it can be an overkill (and spamy) both for the search engines and your article reader.

Some people recommend a keyword density of about 3%. Which equates to about your main keyword being used about 3 times for every 100 words that you use.

4. If you've already done any article writing in the past you'll know about using a working hyper link in your resource box linking to your website. To help make your article more search engine friendly you should use your main keyword that your article is targeting. For example if we use the keyword "Dog Food" again we'd have the keywords dog food as the clickable link to our site.

But a word of caution here, if your article has nothing in common with the hyperlink don't use it. If you think about it, if I click a link for one thing and find your website hasn't anything to do with it am I really going to want to stay around?


Do be put off writing your next seo article, give it a go and see how you get on with it. If you don't succeed the first time don't give up keep at it even though you might not have written the best seo article you've probably put together a great article that still will send you free traffic to your website just because the search engines mightn't like but that doesn't mean your readers won't enjoy it.
