Great content marketing is essentially the bait you put on the end of your hook to attract the fishes. And SEO, in this analogy, is the fishing rod. SEO and Content Marketing work together to not only reel in your audience, but also keep them revisiting your page and engaging with your website (all good stuff).
SEO and Content Marketing = two peas in a pod
First things first, let’s talk Content Marketing. Content Marketing involves creating and sharing content online such as blogs, videos, or social posts to create interest around your brand and business. While the way you craft your content and the copy of your website obviously have an affect on your SEO, it’s important not to forget about the quality and whether people will actually want to read/ watch what you have to offer.
While your content marketing should be crafted carefully to meet SEO requirements, such as by including keywords, the success and popularity of your actual content will be the real force behind the rise of your web page in the search rankings. As you continue to consistently upload content, and update your existing content regularly to ensure facts are correct and the information is relevant, your pages will be ranked higher based on the obvious care and attention going into your material.
So how can you get your content marketing in order?
