Write for the Non-Human Reader
Articles should be written to cater to two dissimilar typesof readers - humans and search engine spiders. Each respondsto information in their own ways. How one attains the bestof both goes to the heart of your article strategy.
People want articles they read to be useful, timely, andrelevant. Writing quality (with wit, persuasion, emotionalimages, etc.) matters to them. But that's of no concern tothe spiders. Readers who like what you've written are likelyto come to your website - maybe even buy something. Yet, thebenefits received from search engines are just as important.
Search spiders are attuned to links, keywords, and Page Rank(the popularity of sites that link to yours). Decide whichkeywords or recurring theme to build every article aroundbefore starting to write. That amplifies your search engineoptimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) efforts. Multiplearticles can draw attention to a wide array of pertinentterms.
What Search Engines Do for Your Articles
- Track your keywords as they appear in posted articles
- Deliver links to you in response to relevant queries, thereby sending targeted traffic to the site
- Find your site through links from posting sites - particularly important for a new or low-traffic website
- Show the places that publish your articles
- Increase your Page Rank as high-quality links are established
- Raise your site in the rankings as more and more articles appear
Decide Where to Submit your Articles
Who (human) are you writing for? Narrowly definingappropriate interest groups will dictate what spin to use.Unless that's clear, blasting out articles is too hit ormiss. For example, if writing about electronic games forchildren, your emphasis will be very different if writtenfor parents, schools and institutions, or the kidsthemselves.

Watch Out for Contradictory Messages
Maintain a consistency of message from one articles to thenext, that is also in synch with your website personality.If your article promises a mother lode of answers, makecertain they can be easily found, once a reader visits yourwebsite. Confusing navigation or a sour note can quicklyundo whatever good your article accomplished.
Recycle Your Articles to Work Harder
Posting your articles online is just the start. Even beforeyou've written them, plan off-line ways to recycle that sameinformation. When I write articles for clients, I encouragethem to use it in as many ways as possible. Don't neglectyour customers who aren't Internet savvy.
Re-package Articles Multiple Ways
- Send to local publications as press releases or PR
- Submit to trade journals
- Create handouts to be provided at your store or with services
- Collect them into handouts or flyers to sell or give away
- Reformat them as hints, booklets, tutorials
- Incorporate them into speeches or classes
Monitor the Results
A strategy only makes sense if you also keep track of what'sworking. How many websites actually publish your article andlink back to yours? (That's easy to determine. Conduct aGoogle or Yahoo query with your article title in quotes.Continue to log where it appears for several months afterposting.)
