When it comes to SEO copywriting, it is important to understand SEO basics such as the effect of headings, bold characters, anchor text and various SEO techniques but as search engines keep improving their algorithm, keyword research, semantics and style have become more important than ever for the SEO professional.
Online competition is now so strong that old-fashioned “on-page” SEO techniques are not enough. Link building is an important part of the optimization puzzle but well done SEO copywriting can help you highlight niche keywords with a good ratio of traffic potential vs. competition and make the difference between high search engine rankings and web pages lost in the crowd.
Once on your website, not only your visitors (and search engines) are looking for good and unique content but your vocabulary, style and use of semantics can play a big role in having them coming back.
