How to work with SEO texts
How do you write SEO texts? Write the best SEO texts for your users.
SEO texts are an important part of your SEO score. When it comes to your landing pages, content – i.e. the text – has a significant impact on how high Google ranks your website in its search engine results. It is therefore important that you spend time and effort in writing good text when you work with SEO.
But what exactly is good SEO text? Good text creates value for your users. Users must have a problem and your text is the answer to that problem. But if you do not incorporate SEO thinking in this text you will not reap the full benefits. On the other hand, if you solely focus on SEO, your text may lose value in the eyes of your users. It is easy to see that a text solely written for search engines will not create much value for the people who read it.
So what do you do? The answer is obvious – as with many other things in life – you have to balance the two things together. You must write for your users and solve their problems and keep SEO in focus at the same time. However, this balance can be difficult to achieve. Many major companies therefore have their own in-house SEO copywriters and it is completely natural to invest in copywriters who are specialised in SEO in order to optimise this balance. With SEO Feedback, you don’t need to do this!

Best practices in SEO texts
Read on the learn about some of the most useful best practices in the creation of SEO-related texts:
Write at least 300 words
When Google ranks your landing sites, it does so, based on how valuable it believes your pages are to your users. Here, Google focuses on how much knowledge your pages contains. According to Google, the total number of words is an indication of how much you know about a specific subject. A good rule-of-thumb is therefore that a landing page should contain at least 300 words and ideally more than that. In fact. It is recommended that the page contains 600–700 words.
However, you shouldn’t think that all you have to do is repeat yourself or spam keywords to get the desired number of words – Google will punish you for this. It is therefore also important that your texts have the correct length and contain high-quality content that your users are willing to spend their time reading. In other words, ensure that both quantity and quality is good enough.
Ensure that your SEO texts do not contain too many difficult or foreign words. In addition, your sentences should not be overly long.
In general, Google rewards you if you create text that flows. You can do this by incorporating infographics, images, bullet points, natural inserts, headings, etc.
Most website users are often busy and they want to get the information as quickly and easily as possible. Therefore, write with this kind of user in mind. And to make it optimal, ensure your text is understandable and has the correct length.
Use your keywords – sensibly!
Keywords are perhaps one of the most discussed SEO subjects. In the “old days”, you optimised one page using one keyword. You used the particular keyword as much as possible in that page. That NO LONGER works. Google’s search algorithm has become so complex that it punishes that kind of practice, which is known as “keyword stuffing”. As we stated earlier, these days you must write valuable texts for users. That is the first priority.
However, keywords are far from obsolete. They provide really good value for your SEO if the keywords are included in your page’s heading. This really helps Google to understand what your page is about. It is also okay if keywords occur a couple of times in the text and in one or two headings. But don’t overdo it. Instead, write interesting text that flows. Google’s search algorithm can easily understand synonyms, which means that you can vary your language which also creates better flow for the user.
When you write with users as your first priority, it becomes only natural that your keyword is included in the text, as we described before. This is precisely what Google wants.
“But does that mean I shouldn’t even think about SEO and just write the way I usually write?” Yes and no. Google’s search algorithm is becoming more and more complex, and it increasingly rewards texts that create value for users. But remember that the algorithm is still a machine and it is far from perfect. As we said before, there are still important elements that you need to know about if you are to have a chance of being ranked at the top of Google’s search results.
It is about staying up to date
