When it comes to creating content online, what is your main focus? Is it to provide value to your audience, increase traffic and sales, or to help grow your brand and bring awareness to whatever it is you specialize in? No matter which of these it might be, the content on your site is important and it shouldn’t be a rushed or half-effort project. The best content on the internet today is much longer in words, more detailed, and full of original images, citations, and references to other sites. In short, if you are still focusing your efforts on writing daily articles that are just 500-words long, you are doing it wrong. This is especially true when it comes to SEO and trying to compete against some of the top sites on the internet today. With over a billion active sites now pushing content out there, it’s not only harder than ever to compete, it’s also more of a pre-planning and marketing strategy game as well.
