7 Content Optimization Tips for Better Online Brand Visibility

by Chuck Swanson ~ June 28th, 2011

Chuck Swanson When we help our clients improve their online brand visibility, we always address the need for sound content or blogs built around keywords. Fresh content is one of the most important factors for ranking on Google – at least in my humble opinion – and we all have Google's Panda update fresh on our minds, but that content has to be optimized, and so often we find it is not.   Optimizing content is not hard. In fact, it will become second nature and be part of your writing process in short order. Remember, if people can't find the content you create, then it's a waste of time to create it. Here are a few quick tips on how to easily optimize your content for better online brand visibility.   

CONTENT MARKETING


Today, content and content marketing are playing a central role in online brand visibility. Without a steady flow of fresh, relevant, well-written content your site will not be maximizing its search engine presence.

Content can come in many forms, all of which – if optimized – can set your site apart from competitors, giving you better online brand visibility, but perhaps even more important – a voice. A seat at the table, as they say, brings thought-leadership which goes miles toward shrinking sales cycles and converting new business.

  • Blogs – establish a blog and let prospects see your passion for what you do, how you do it, and who makes it happen
  • Video – create video content and differentiate yourself. YouTube and Vimeo are great places, beyond your site, to create a presence
  • Articles – write smart articles and syndicate them at article sites as well as distribute them to bloggers and publishers
  • Press Releases – set up shot at PRWeb.com and PRLog.org and publish your press releases. Create a media center or integrate them into your blog for more robust, searchable content
  • Enewsletters – interact with prospects, customers and partners and archive them on your site
