The goal of almost every search optimization campaign is to increase revenue through higher visibility in Google. The best long-term method for doing so is generally a steady stream of quality content that begs to be shared. Google looks at the number and quality of sites that link to your content, and generally gives higher rankings to sites with the best/most links pointing to the page. Here is my advice to anyone who wants to be more visible online:
– Be surprising: What can you say that isn’t obvious or well-known? Can you interpret a new health study that seems counter-intuitive or tell them about a common health danger they are ignoring?
– Appeal to emotion: If you want people to link to and share your content, you need to win your readers hearts before you can win their minds. What can you talk about that fills them with awe or anger?
– Be visual: Our brains interpret images better than text, so visualization is best for the reader. Your images and videos can also give site owners a reason to link to your piece.
Once you have created a great piece that is surprising, visual, and emotion- nducing, you can tell your friends and peers about it. Connect with journalists and bloggers who care about the same things you do. Building these relationships can be fun, rewarding, and potentially profitable for site owners and writers.
