When choosing an article for your website, make sure that it is a length that is optimal for search engine optimization efforts. Articles that are as short as 300 words or as long as 700 words should fit into this category.
To a lot of writers, search engine optimization is not the end goal. If that is you, then you should still keep the articles to this length for you readers. Heck, they will probably leave the page if its any longer and that means you may be only getting half your information across to them. Don’t make the site to wordy as this may lose readers.
To read online is totally different than to read a paperback book. Paragraphs are written shorter which is better. Say your article is 4 or 5 pages long. You could split it up into several articles. You could label each of the articles to be a specific part. Just make sure you guide the reader along and help them to make the decision to continue reading.
When writing your articles, learn to use search engine optimization. If you don’t plan on writing your articles and plan on hiring a ghostwriter, choose one who already knows about search engine optimization. You could even supply them with a list of keywords that go along with your primary keyword phrase.
Optimizing your articles for search engines will help them rank higher when someone searches for a keyword relating to your subject, which means that you will receive more visitors because more people will actually see your URL. It is a fact that most visitors don’t look past the first search engine result page and by the third search engine results page there is practically no audience left for you to promote to.
Its very important to make sure that your articles are written in a way that gets them to the first page of the search engines. If your page is on the second or third page, then like I already said, you will get no traffic at all.
So how do you make money with articles? First, you should keep your articles to within 300 to 700 words in length which is optimal for search engine optimization. This will help you rank well in the search engines and keep the readers attention. Try to pack as much information as possible to help the reader fix their problem and always leave them wanting to know more.
