Since my first blog post was such a success, I’ve decided to take control of the keyboard once again!
This time, though, I’m responding to my fan mail… oops… I mean, all of the questions you sent me:
Could you take a look at my home page? I think I may have used too many keywords.
I hate to tell you, but your home page looks like my toy box – stuffed to the gills! Keyword stuffing hasn’t been cool in my 1 ½ years on this planet, so make sure your SEO content is written for humans (and cats!) first, and search engines second. Otherwise, I’ll have to find you and slash you.
I have such a hard time writing sales copy. Got any advice?
Luckily for you, I’m a pro at writing sales copy (after all, I’ve taken plenty of naps on my Mom’s desk while she’s written it!). Basically, it comes down to one thing – telling your readers how your product can help them.
Think of it in terms of my favorite catnip-filled mouse. All my Mom needed to know was that he was soft, cuddly, and filled-to-the-brim with catnip. She didn’t need to read hundreds of words of hyped-up, sales copy. She didn’t need to read testimonials from other cats. It’s a catnip mouse! He’s awesome! End of story.
I’m thinking about building a bunch of quick websites, filling them with OK content (not great, but not terrible), and seeing how they do. What do you think of my plan?
No offense, but I think your plan belongs at the bottom of my litter box.
Seriously, if Panda and Penguin (not to mention your own human visitors) haven’t taught you how important kick-butt SEO content is, there’s nothing I can do to help you. Just be sure to get a big scooper and some industrial-sized air freshener before you go ahead with that plan, because it stinks!
