Imagine visiting a beautiful website that looks modern and is accurate to the brand. You’re impressed at this point and willing to give the company’s products a chance.

Now imagine reading the website content. It is full of spelling and grammar mistakes, has outdated information, and has a poor writing style.

That would immediately affect how you look at the company. That’s why website content is just as, if not more important than the website design.

These 10 dos and don’ts comprise my best practices for writing website content. They will help you write good website content and earn customer trust.

1. Do Use Your Own Voice

The last thing you want is for your text to sound dry and boring. It is easy to include all the information a customer might need, but it’s difficult to add your own spin on it.

Before we begin, there is one thing I would like to address. A lot of marketers do not see a positive ROI on videos and leave them out from their content strategy. This happens because they miss out on video creation basics, or choose to ignore it.

Social channels are full of business opportunities. Almost every social platform offers its own set of advertising options to help you target your users effectively.

But today, content creation is so prolific that in 60 seconds, around 3.3 million Facebook posts, 449k tweets are created.

To save users from this content shock, these same channels also give power to your audience to “block” or “hide” your content. Top that with 41% of millennials using ad blockers and it is very little you can do to stay in their radar.

As brands are becoming more aware of these powers, they are turning to influencers to lower the advertising noise and reach their consumers in a less intrusive way.

The ambiguity of “influence”

Influencer marketing is booming.

Most bloggers that discuss Pinterest marketing talk about the basics of using the platform, such as creating a Business account, using Rich Pins, and optimizing your profile and boards with keywords.

But, as an active and engaged Pinterest user, I see a number of not-so-obvious mistakes that Pinners are making all the time. Many of them can affect how your Pin is shared, and whether it gets clicks back to your website.

In this article, I outline 7 not-so-obvious Pinterest mistakes that are hurting your shares and engagement.

1. Using the wrong code in your Pins

I see many Pinners using their image’s alt text to generate their Pinterest description. But, the primary purpose of alt text is to describe the photo to visually impaired users, so doing this can harm your website’s usability and search engine optimization (SEO).

This post is a list of search engine optimization (SEO) tips for bloggers. It will be kept updated as I come across new and better SEO tips for blogs. Bookmark it and check back for updates.

A lot of these tips are still valid, but I’ve added a few new ones and updated it to reflect the new ranking factors of social media and mobile usage.

Blogging software is really a simple Content Management System (CMS) that easily adds new pages and integrates them into your site’s navigational structure and linkage.

Blogs and blog posts are naturally search-engine-friendly because they are text-rich,
