What makes good SEO content?

What is the difference between a well optimized page and a poorly optimized page as far as a search engine is concerned? Great SEO hopes to accomplish these four things:

  • the content should be easy for a search engine to read;
  • it should be written for people, not robots;
  • proper formatting such as bold and italic text to help improve text;
  • the web page should use well structured HTML;

That’s really it! Everything a website needs to be successful (as far as SEO is concerned) can be summed up in those four points.

    I think the way people are viewing seo as a whole now is changing and evolving. The strict guidelines and practices in place are forcing people to change their perception on what ‘good’ seo is. And only for the better really because the way seo works now is the way it should have always been. I think the most important point for me that stands out is content should be written for people. Users forget (or don’t realise) that search engines are getting more intelligent every day at spotting bad seo but also are programmed to read like humans. The days of tricking or manipulating the search engines are long gone. Especially with Google capitalising on the market share.

    That really is all there is to it. A lot of people try to overcomplicate it, but these short principles are the foundation.

    After Google’s Hummingbird update people are focusing upon the contents of the website and want to write excellent, unique, interesting and informative contents which capture maximum reader’s attention and boost your position. Your answer for making good contents is pretty helpful for bloggers and I am agree that contents should be written on the basis of your readers so that they can’t face any difficulty while reading it.
