SEO Writing Still Matters

If you wonder whether or not search engine optimized (SEO) writing is still necessary, I say the answer is “Yes.”  SEO is one way search engines find information in the mass of billions of websites.  It makes sense that some type of system is necessary for search engine spiders to find relevant content online.  If not, how would they know who to categorize on top pages for a search or not?

It seems to me that Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) has something to do with the whole thing.  Not to get too technical but LSI is a process of analzying word usage in particular  content.  For instance it is a way to see how a particular word is used in the context as well as how many times it is used.  This helps to analyze the relevancy of what has been written. It recognizes whether or not the conent actually addresses what it claims to do.

This relates to any type of writing.  When you reach for a book to read you expect it to address what you think it does. People do an Internet search to find specific information.  I don’t know all the complexities of search engine optimization and how search engines find information but as a writer it definitely makes sense that using keywords correctly in search engine optimization makes sense.

Use keywords people are searching for combined with good, relevant content and that gives the search engine spiders something to find. It makes sense to me and I’m glad it does.  It means more relevant content will be produced to meet the expectations of what people go online to find.

New Year

Time moves so quickly sometimes. Christmas took forever to arrive when we were young. The older people used to complain about how fast it came around but that didn’t make sense — until now.

Christmas seems to arrive every few weeks now. Then the next thing you know, it’s a new year. Thank God for a new year. When situations get bad it seems like the new year may not arrive at times. And 2006 truly presented some hairy times. The world situation, the loss of 3000 lives (that we hear about) for a war, natural disasters that don’t even get a mention anymore.

Yet, the good times help to smooth over the bad. Writing about emotions is a good way to face and heal them. This would be a good time to put your emotions on paper, look at them, then decide if you should hang on to them or throw them out with the past year and bring in new hopes for the new year.

Write how you felt about 2006 and what you hope for 2007.

Why Search Engines Love SEO Content

You’ve heard repeatedly that search engines love SEO content. Do you know why? It has to do with the spiders.

If you’re afraid of spiders don’t worry; these won’t jump out at you. Spiders are the little robots that crawl through the web sites on the Internet to find pages that have content people are searching for.

Looking for web content is like going through a giant index in the largest book in the universe. The process starts when you type a word into a search engine browser. That happens when you go online and decide to type a word in the little bar at the top of the page. This starts a search. Immediately, the robots form the search engine shoot out into the web to find a response to pages that have the information you search for.

Pages are pulled up according to how relevant they are to your keyword. It also counts when the pages have keywords that match your inquiry. After finding the pages, these are presented to you in rank order.

That’ why search engines love SEO content. It provides the information needed by the spiders to find your web pages – or not.
