Copied Content Works?
Copying content never works, If you’re copying contents then believe me you can not call yourself a blogger.
Let me give you a simple example, You wrote an awesome content which contains every useful information and someone copied that on his/her site.
What will be your feelings then? I know you’ll like what the hell? my hard work got copied, same feelings will come to the person from where you copy the content.
Respect others hard work in order to get respected.
If above example not convinced you yet then let me tell you that Google is 100 times smarter than you.
They have Algorithms to check which content is copied.
If you’re doing this stop now and change your habit from copying to writing content.
Forget the past, think about the future!
Writing Less is Not Working Now!
Long gone a days when we say that 500 words content will work.
You all noticed that things are getting change from time to time. The thing which was of 100$ now it’s for 300$, same in the content.
Now you have to write at least 2000+ words to get better rankings in SERP.
It’s also a way to make visitors into subscribers.
When they see that your content is good and full of information they’re most likely to subscribe to your blog.
If they love that much then they’ll also share it! It’s really a good strategy to engage visitors.
In my previous days, I use to write 1000 words content but I was not getting that much traffic.
I researched on Google this problem and got to know I was doing all things awesome but the only reason was content length.
I was like Ohh! What I’ve did, I’ve just wasted my time! I sold the site and started this site.
From the first day, I promised myself that I’ll write atleast 2000 words content and Alhamdullilah I’m doing this!
You believe or not, it’s working and giving me huge much traffic.
Not getting? Let me give you a solid research by SERPIQ about content length, below I’m attaching the graph of Top 10 Search Results for 20,000+ keywords which is analyzed by SERPIQ in 2012 but it is still worth.
This is the best example that Google give importance to Content Length.
If you can write 500 words then why not 2500 words.
Like me, promise yourself and start writing at least 2000 words, I promise you’ll see changes in SERP!

Adding Images in Content:
Are you noticing? I’m adding images where necessary, why? It’s a way to stand out and getting readers attention.
It’s also beneficial for getting better SERP, how? Backlinko analyzed one million Google search results and got to know that “Content with at least one image significantly outperformed content without any images.”
Nowadays many people search Images on Google Image Search, If your image will be there you’ll getting some extra traffic too.
Images are too much beneficial in a reader’s eye as they get attracted by the attractive image, it’s human nature!
Don’t forget the great saying:
You have got that using Images is better but which Image Google loves? The simple answer is Google love images which is unique, SEO friendly and without Copyright.
I want you to check Ankit Singla’s article where he discussed each and every way to make your Images Google optimized.
Start using images where appropriate from now.
N.B: Don’t add too much Images in your content, over limiting of anything can become dangerous!
Adding Videos in Content:
Adding videos in your article is too much beneficial.
Nowadays, people like videos rather than text.
Our new generation is too lazy in reading and they love to watch videos. Why not give them what they love.
They’ll love to share that content and they’ll become your subscriber for sure.
Making video and adding that in your content is beneficial in other sense too like you’re getting a free backlink from high authority Video sharing site, like Youtube, Dailymotion etc. and high authority websites are most likely to rank faster than yours.
Add your post link in the description section from which you’ll get a free backlink and extra traffic.
It’s also a great way to compete with your competitors if they’re not using Videos in their articles.

Well Structured URL:
A short and exact keyword match URL is always beneficial for you. Always try to write only main keyword in URL and make it short as much as you can.
Let’s take an example of an Authority blog which is backlinko, I never saw a lengthy URL in their contents/pages, this example is great enough to make you realize that the creepy and lengthy URLs never works.
A short and good URL is not only beneficial for SEO but it’s also beneficial for users to remember URL for coming next time to your site’s content which they read before (when need arises).
Example of a well structured URL is like below:
In this post my title is: “The Proven Guide On SEO Friendly Content Writing!” and my URL is: “http://bornblogger.net/seo-friendly-content/”.
Only put a URL of a keyword you want to rank. This is what I’m using and other Pro Bloggers are using nowadays and getting benefit from it.
Internal linking is ranking factor nowadays.
The simple definition of Internal Linking is linking to your old contents on a new content from the same website. They mostly used in Menu/Navigation on a website/blog.
According to MOZ Internal linking is beneficial in three reasons:
- Internal Linking allow users to navigate a website/blog easily.
- Internal Linking help in establishing information for the given website.
- Internal Linking help to spread link juice around websites/blogs.
It can be also reduce Bounce rate, how? The readers will more likely to visit the link you’ve gave to your new content. In this way a visitor will spend more time on your blog/website and your bounce rate will reduce.
It has one more advantage, When they click the link of your old article which you gave to your new article then your Page Views will increase.
As MOZ already said Internal Linking help to spread link juice, it also can be beneficial to get your content indexed from your new content which is not already indexed as Google Bots crawl the whole article along with the links.
You can see in this article I’m Linking to my old articles.
Take advantage of Internal Linking, you’ll surely get benefits and better SERP.
Linking To Other High Authority Website’s Articles:
Nowadays bloggers thinking only Backlinks are important, Backlinks are important I know but linking to other high authority websites is also very important.
Why? It has two major benefits the first is in terms of SEO and the second is you’ll gain trust in users eye about the information you gave is really fruitful.
N.B: Only link to high authority websites like WikiPedia, Quick Sprout etc. if you link to low authority or spammy websites then Google will surely going to consider your Article as Spam.
You can see infect in this article I’m linking to others many times because I love to link to other high authority sites.
One more thing, don’t link others if their contents are not related to your blog’s content.
This is all what I’m using to rank my contents in Search Engines. I think this guide will make your content a SEO Friendly Content.
I’m really doing all these things to make my content SEO Friendly Content except Making Video Tutorials.
