What is SEO Copywriting?
At its core, SEO copywriting is the process of creating content that is appealing to both your audience and search engine algorithms.
It’s a strategy where you produce quality content that people will want to read, while also keeping in mind the strategic placement of keywords and common search phrases to rank higher in search results (I.e. on the first page of Google!)
It can be a challenge, but balancing these two elements is essential as:
- Placing greater weight on SEO and keywords will make your copy robotic and non-sensical.
- On the other hand, ignoring SEO completely could leave you with fantastic copy that no one will ever find.
Therefore, striking the sweet spot is key if you want to achieve both visibility, engagement, and conversions.
The Synergy Between SEO and Copywriting
The realm of copywriting extends far beyond the confines of traditional advertising. Due to the astronomical rise of the internet, copywriting has evolved dramatically and is now more important than ever when it comes to online marketing.
However, the basic rules and principles of good copywriting remain the same, whether SEO is involved or not.
Over the last five+ years, Google and other major search engines have recognised the impact that optimised content was having on user experience. Now, in 2023 and beyond, it's a well-established fact that engaging, educational, high-quality copywriting is the key to achieving higher Google search rankings.
In a comprehensive list of Google’s 200 rankings factors, Backlinko placed “Quality Content” as number one, stating that, “[Quality content is] the most important SEO factor. Google wants to show users high-quality, informative, and relevant content.”
Therefore, engaging, user-centric content that provides value and relevance to your target audience is now the cornerstone of an effective SEO strategy.
