How to Optimize Your Online Articles - Does Optimization Matter?
(Page 4 of 4 )
Optimizing online articles sounds pretty hard! Why bother worrying about the search engines when you have plenty of friends and family who will check out your articles all on their own? For one thing, if friends and family canít find your articles they wonít be able to read them, either. Why do you write articles in the first place? So that people will read them, of course. If you donít optimize your online articles, then no one will ever find them to read all those clever words.
Search engine optimization isnít just about getting your materials read, itís absolutely essential for your content. When your articles are optimized for search engines, youíre going to boost your page ranking with those same engines. This means your article will appear near the top of that list of long Web site results -- which means more traffic, people, will read your words. More traffic online directly equals more money in your pocket.
Page rankings for most Web sites translates into more revenue, as many earn from traffic and page-click numbers alone. When you donít optimize, you donít earn as much. In online writing, most writers earn income only directly in relation to how much traffic they draw to their words. Web site creators who are writing articles only to increase content definitely want to boost page rankings, otherwise thereís no point to the site.
When your articles arenít optimized for the search engines, they might as well be invisible. Itís incredibly difficult to find anything online without going through a search engine first, and search engines use one thing to find sites: keywords. Make sure your online articles are chock full of them, and you know everything you need to know on how to optimize your online articles.
