– Here's what Google
classifies as helpful content. By now you know about Google's
helpful content update. It's all about how Google
wants you to create content For humans and not search engines Which makes sense because
no one wants to read content There's just stuff with
keywords and doesn't make sense. Today, I wanted to break down Seven ways to make your
content more helpful. Way number one, only
write on what you know. Over the years, I've created websites On a lot of different topics, From medical to financial, to
even poker, but here's issue, I'm not an expert in any of those topics. Hence, none of those
websites did really amazing. Well, sure, some of them
ranked really high on Google For the short run, but they
still didn't do amazingly well. Back then, Google's
algorithm was much easier, But still, people didn't
really care as much For my content because it wasn't amazing. It was just average. Why, because I wasn't an expert And I truly didn't
understand those topics, But most of the content That I produce on marketing, it does well. Why? As you guess, because I know that topic Inside and out, I know it super well So I can write extremely well
on it compared to most people. In other words, I'm an expert in marketing So I focus my efforts on
writing marketing content. Way number two, Google wants
you to focus your content On a specific industry or niche. As Google stated in the past, They prefer that you don't create
Lots of content on different topics. In other words, they want you to focus. You could say, this is
related to being an expert But it's a little bit different. If your website focuses on one thing, It's much more likely to be
the end all be all website For that one resource and topic, Versus sites like Wikipedia
that cover everything But they don't really go super in depth On any one topic. Way number three, make sure
your content is executable. If someone reads your
content and they don't have A specific takeaway and they
don't know what to do next, You're failing with your content then. What I like to do is end
my articles with a summary And that summary is of the learnings And I express that summary
through a conclusion And I make it very clear
with key takeaways. I also label my conclusion
with the word conclusion As a heading, so that way, it's clear In case someone wants to
just skim your article. Way number four, continually
update your content. Things change over time. You don't assume that if
you write a piece of content It will keep getting traffic. As things get stale, your
traffic will go down. It sucks, but it's the
reality, so you want to keep Your content up to date
and fresh and relevant So it provides users with
the best experience possible. When updating your content, It's not about how much you change, It's more about, What do you need to
change to make it amazing? Some people tell me like,
Do I need to change a
paragraph, five paragraphs, Rewrite the whole article,
add images, videos? What do I need to do, Neil? And I'm like, compare
it to your competition. See who's ranking for the key words That you want to rank for
or you are ranking for. What are they doing better than you? What are they doing worse than you? What can you do to improve your article? That'll give you idea Of how much you should
update your content by Or how little you need to
update that piece of content by And that could be little to nothing And maybe even no change,
or that could mean That you have to rewrite
the whole article. Try to update your content
at least once a year. I like having my team
go through our content At least once a quarter,
if not twice a year, On the worst absolute
case if we're super busy. Way number five, add in your secret sauce. What do you know that others don't? What have you experienced
that others haven't? By adding in your secret sauce And your personal experiences, You are more likely to get social shares, Back links and generate more traffic. If you're just regurgitating
what everyone else Is already saying, then there's
nothing that will be unique. So in every piece of content, Try to add in your personal experiences. Way number six, appeal to all
different types of readers. Some people like skimming,
some people love reading. Some people love watching videos. Some people like listening
And some people are visual learners. In other words, use things like videos, Infographics, images and anything else That you think can help
improve the experience. Just look at this image that breaks down How fast a chetah runs. Yes, the topic's been beat to death But the visuals make it different And easier to really comprehend
how fast a chetah runs. Way number seven, do
your keyword research. I want you to head over to Ubersuggest And type in a keyword related to the topic That you're focusing on. For this example, I'm using
the term digital marketing. In the left hand navigation, I want you to click on keyword ideas. This is where you can find
a lot of different keywords. I want you to click on the tab, Like related, questions, preposition. This is where you'll
find a lot of keywords And many of them are based on
what people are interested in. Integrating some of those concepts Into your topic will help
ensure that your content Is thorough and will help you rank higher Because it will be better
than your competition Who didn't take the time to be thorough. Now, if you need help with
Google's helpful content update And you were hit by it, or
even if you weren't hit by it But you want to be prepared

A blog is a collaborative space on the internet. It allows visitors to edit content and share it with others. Wikipedia is a great example of this type of blog. However, unlike a wiki, a blog only has one owner. You can edit the content on your blog, or allow your readers to post comments at the bottom of your posts. A blog can help your business rank in search engine results and gain recognition as an expert in your industry.
Creating a blog is relatively easy. You can use the WordPress blogging platform. This software is beginner-friendly and easy to install. If you don’t want to install WordPress yourself, you can opt for a hosting service that offers this feature. A good service will also install all necessary plugins. WordPress also has a strong community to help you with your blog. If you want to start a blog for profit, WordPress is the best choice. However, if you only want to write for fun, a blog on BlogSpot is probably a better choice.
Google’s algorithm looks at anchor text when ranking sites. You can use Rank Math to help optimize your posts for search engines. It’s free to download and install and can be found in the WordPress plugins dashboard. There’s also Grammarly and Rank Math Pro, both of which offer grammar checkers. Those who want to get the most from their blogs can check their posts through Grammarly and Rank Math Pro.
In addition to helping your business rank higher in search engines, blogging can also help boost your business’s online presence. While paid ads and SEO can make your company’s homepage rank high in Google, a blog is a more sustainable solution. If your blog isn’t already popular, try to read other people’s blogs or those of your favorite celebrities, businesses, or hobby associations. This may give you some ideas. You might also want to start a blog for your own personal use.
In addition to improving website traffic, a blog can increase trust among your target market. You can establish yourself as an expert in your field by providing content your target market will find useful and interesting. Your readers will be more likely to buy from you if they feel that you are an expert in the field. It’s also important to remember that customers are savvy consumers, and they buy from those they trust. That’s why a blog can be an invaluable tool in your business strategy.
One great way to increase revenue on your blog is to use AdSense. It’s not rocket science, but many people get rejected based on the wrong reasons. It’s crucial to read the policies carefully and create valuable content. Choose a quality WordPress theme, write great content, and choose ad units wisely. By doing this, you can earn money from your blog without sacrificing your blog’s aesthetics.
A blog also provides a great social outlet. Whether you’re looking to build relationships with people from different cultures or geographical regions, blogging can help you gain a deeper understanding of their lives. There are blogs dedicated to a wide range of topics, including mindfulness, relationships, and minimalism. No matter what your personal interests are, you’re bound to find something on a blog that speaks to you.
A blog is a great way to create content for your business or personal life. It allows you to engage with your audience and even get comments. Most blogs are run by individuals or small groups, but some corporate sites use them for thought-leadership style content. You can also use a blog as a way to establish a personal brand.
The benefits of a blog are limitless. Despite the number of benefits, you must make sure to use it wisely. It’s important to research the type of blogging platform you’ll use to manage your blog content, and to set up an editorial calendar. Remember to brainstorm content ideas often. It’s also important to use different blog post styles and article structures. This will help you attract more visitors to your blog, and to build your SEO strategy.
A blog is a website that publishes new content regularly. Unlike a regular website, a blog is updated regularly, while non-blogging websites update their content daily or weekly. A blog’s content can be categorized into categories or archived as older pieces. You can also post comments on the content.
