Learn how to write better SEO Content!

Hopefully readers are not saying..."NO not another SEO article from someone who thinks they know." I am a website developer and just to prove to you that I know what I am going to be sharing with you, you can look my website up by just typing Website Help in Google Search bar and I am in the top five search results. My website is Helpwithyourwebsite.com. I have decided to share some of my SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tips with all of you. I know that when I first started building websites and writing articles, I had no idea what SEO was. Now I can share with you that applying SEO to your websites and articles will increase your page views and hopefully lead to some extra sales and/or more customers.

How to apply SEO on my articles and websites?

Just for you beginners, I am going to give basic instructions in this paragraph how you can apply SEO to your website pages and articles. Here at Hubpages, when you write a Hub (article) you are asked to add related tags to your Hubs. This is part of helping Hubpages apply SEO to your hubs. You are adding related tags that may be used in Search queries. Those searches will match to the related tags in your articles which will lead to people reading your articles. Supplying content to your hubs, title and adding a summary also helps with your hubpages SEO. In other writing websites or on your personal websites, you may have an area strictly for SEO input. Meta Descriptions, tags and Keywords....Does that sound familiar? Those Meta Tags and Keywords help the Search Engines determine what your website or article is about. That is why it is important to add your SEO data to your websites. Filling out those Search Engine Optimization boxes on your websites isn't the only thing that helps your pages rank higher in search engines. Your Web Page Content is extremely important when it comes to SEO.

"Content is King"

I am sure many of you have heard that "Content is King" before. Well it really is king in SEO. Although search engines change their algorithms all the time, content is always going to be a big portion of how your websites and pages are ranked. You should write a lot of content relating to your web page topic. How long should your articles be? As long as it can be is what some SEO experts say. Writers write articles and then the search engines index those articles. The more content means the more indexing of the article. So the longer the article or webpage, the better ranking you will get. Don't get me wrong here though...Your content must be quality content.

How long should a good SEO article be?

Many Web Developers and SEO experts say that your article should be at least five paragraphs long. Think back when you were in school and your teachers told you that you had to write a five paragraphed essay or story. Do the same thing with your website content. However, you shouldn't get off topic. Write as much as you can about the topic on hand. Write quality content that includes keywords or key phrases that your readers will be searching for. When you find yourself repeating or jumping off subject then you should know that it is time to end your SEO article.

SEO Writing

Remember to concentrate on who is reading your writing. You want to write for the reader so that they return to your articles for more quality information. Although the search engines are going to be indexing your pages, you want to remember that humans will be reading your writing. Writing good SEO articles will help direct those human eyes to your web pages. Also, remember that keyword stuffing is never recommended when trying to get your articles ranked high. Keyword stuffing can be mistaken for black hat seo. Black Hat SEO will get you penalized by the Search Engines. To learn more about Website Development and SEO writing, view my website link below.

      @Claudia Oh you are talking about here on Hubpages sorry about that...I think your main tags (keywords) should be placed in the tags section. I put all of the tags that relate to my article. I don't know hubpages rule on this but I usually put 5-7 tags more or less depending on my Hub.

      Hi Tammy, thanks for your replay. I read the link you referred me too but it still doesn’t answer my question of how many tags is it recommendable to put into any given hub? I know I shouldn’t put too many and I should leave out the very general ones like “recipe” or “travel”, at least that’s what I’ve learned from fellow hubbers, but I still don’t know how many tags would be a good number.

      Hi tammyfrost, thanks for the tips! I have a question though, how many tags do you recommend for each hub? In other words, what would be a good keyword number and how many would be considered keyword stuffing?
