In today’s competitive cyber-market, SEO article writing has become a staple of companies and entrepreneurs alike. SEO is an abbreviation for “search engine optimization.” Such optimization aids in driving wanted traffic to specific Internet spots.
In the late 1950s a team of experts began developing the Internet. The development process stretched into the early 1990s. In 1992 the Internet became accessible to the public. The planetary networking created by the Internet set business-minded and average individuals abuzz. A new generation of radical marketing and social possibilities stretched forth. However, with these invaluable possibilities came a looming challenge: directing the right traffic to the right places.
The World Wide Web is an intricate spider’s web of sites connecting to sites, each spinning into their own unique niches. Search engines can be compared to maps pointing us down various streets and boulevards, and toward junctions branching off in multiple directions. SEO article writing is a way of adding markers to the map. By optimizing an article, various engines pick up on the markers and display a link to your street (or article) when a user types one of your markers (or keywords) into an engine.
Some shrug their shoulders at this type of writing, thinking it is a waste of time better spent on pointed promotions. Others look at it as a way to drive more wanted traffic to their Internet spots; some even consider it supplemental to their promotional ventures. Regardless, the market for this writing is growing exponentially.
For the writer, optimizing an article is about keyword placement and density. An article should contain a keyword density of approximately 2%. The keyword should be inserted into the article title. It should appear in the first and last sentence of the article, usually in bold and/or italics. The trick is to meet these requirements while holding onto the article’s human aspect and appeal.
On the client-side, it is important to insert the keyword into your search widget box after posting the article. Also, insert an image with the article and include the keyword in the image title tag. These minimal additions can turn SEO article writing into a traffic magnet.
