Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Search Engine Optimization article writing or SEO article writing is one of the biggest things to hit the internet and online marketing since…well…search engines! Although many know that SEO is a great way to ensure that their site ranks well in search engine rankings, a clarity between white hat SEO tricks and grey methods is somewhat missing.

The great debate of SEO Article Writing vs. Content Writing

Some people will argue that content writing is different that SEO article writing, and to some extent, it is true as well. Some of the things that you need to bear in mind which doing any of these writings is that both content writing and SEO article writing must have good grammar, thoroughly researched, entertaining, engaging, informative, and relevant.

However, one of the major differences between the two is that content writing doesn’t have to be focussed on using keywords at a specific density to optimize the page for search engines (which in turn promotes higher page rank), whereas SEO article writing is precisely about it. There are many websites that have promoted themselves to a new height by consistently following their SEO article writing plan.

SEO article writing can prove to be tough when the keywords aren’t something that a normal speaker, reader, or writer would say, read, or write. The SEO keywords must flow naturally and appear to blend in with the theme, while at the same time fitting the requirements of SEO article writing and web promotion. Only truly talented SEO writers can write articles worth reading and gaining information

What is good SEO Article Writing about?

That’s a little bit more than what you think. If you don’t think it is difficult, go ahead and give it a try. You will most likely be surprised to find out at how difficult SEO article writing can be.
