Content, Content, Content

One of the most important things you will find about internet marketing is the need for a website, and along with the website comes the need for content.  Now, some might believe that any content will do and you will find sites out there that have multiple pages that are basically the same article just rewritten multiple times.  Some people even use a program called a spinner to take an unique article and change it into multiple articles.  This used to be a way to get a lot of content quickly and easily, but it doesn’t really work these days.  Instead you need a site with unique content that has some value to it.  Your content needs to be readable and to engage the reader, so they spend some time perusing the site rather than just bouncing in and back out again.

So, it helps to be marketing something that you are interested in, so that you can create your own unique content.  You can have quite a bit less overhead if you are creating your own content versus having to outsource it.  Now, outsourcing is certainly an option and there are multiple places to go to get assistance with creative writing, content creation or even whole website creation.  In the future, I will talk about a few of the sites that I have found that you might find useful.  I would suggest that you make certain that any content that you outsource is very carefully proofread before you publish it on your site.  You might also want to make certain it passes a site called Copyscape, to ensure it is unique content.

The search engines all have slightly different ways of determining the value of a particular website to their users and the more value they ascribe to your site, the better ranking you might achieve in those search engines, and of course, the higher the ranking that you achieve, the more traffic you will receive, and traffic is what leads to success.  The more visitors that view your website, the more engagement is possible.

As you research internet marketing, you will find a variety of other guidelines related to your content creation.  The length of a post matters, the amount of content, and the frequency that you post all have considerable impact to your success or failure.  You want to create new, engaging content often to keep your site regularly updated.   Longer posts are definitely better than short posts.  Personally, I like to come up with a topic and then just writing off the top of my head.  I will do some research for subjects that I am not all that familiar with, but I find that internet marketing is easiest when trying to market things that you find interesting.  So, aside from this site, I also have a couple related to hobbies that I have and can write confidently about.  You might find it best to only have one site and concentrate on that.  Whichever you choose to do, just remember that content is key!
