The Essentials: How to Craft Expert SEO Content for Your Business Website
Empower your business website SEO efforts and keep your site ahead of Google’s algorithm updates. Here’s a breakdown of the E-E-A-T acronym:
Content creators must show they possess genuine firsthand experience in the topics they cover. Authenticity matters. Writing about subjects without relevant experience may compromise accuracy and credibility. (Unless you’re an expert in research and digital content production like the professionals at Grand River Agency.)
Building upon experience is expertise. Of course, it goes without saying that expertise is the hallmark of EXPERT-level content. Search engines favor content that showcases a deep understanding of the subject matter, be it a lawyer discussing how to get out of a traffic ticket or a dance instructor writing about different styles of dance.
Being recognized as an authority in your field adds another layer to SEO credibility. Recognition, mentions and backlinks from industry leaders and social media shares contribute significantly to establishing your website’s authority. (And anyone who encounters your business website and digests your content will immediately recognize you as an industry thought leader.)
Trustworthiness is paramount for SEO success. Beyond credible content, your website itself must be seen as trustworthy. This involves regular updates, fast load times, user-friendly navigation, and implementing security measures like HTTPS.
Other Best Practices to Improve Your Business Website SEO
Beyond E-E-A-T, there are other elements you can add to your business website to improve its standing in search engines like Google and Bing.
1. Make an About Us Page
Give your audience a glimpse behind the scenes. An About Us page humanizes your brand and nurtures a sense of trust.
2. Keep Your Site Updated Regularly
Regularly update your content to keep it relevant. This includes refreshing stats, updating links, and adapting your SEO strategy to align with algorithm changes.
Just as a prospective client would hate to visit your website and find it hasn’t been updated in years, search engines algorithms “think” much the same way.
3. Collaborate with Like-Minded Experts
Join forces with other brands through guest posts or joint research. Collaborative content from credible sources and other “industry heavyweights” enhances your domain authority and SEO standing.
