Here’s How to Perform an Effective SEO Content Audit in 2019

Feel as though your content needs a spring cleaning? Worried that a 327-word article is bringing traffic down? It’s time for an SEO content audit.

An SEO content audit can be a super powerful way of boosting the performance of your website. Yet it can also be time-consuming and tricky if you’ve never done one before. However, a content audit gives you a clearer sight of how you can improve your SEO strategy by showing you what content should be kept, what should be updated, and what should be deleted altogether. 

The end result? A healthier website with less low-quality pages. Where SEO is concerned, it means better traffic, more results, and improved visitor experience.

As said, performing a content audit can be time-consuming and tricky. To make your life a whole lot easier, join us as we take a look at how to perform an effective SEO content audit in 2019 the (fairly) easy way.

What is an SEO Content Audit and When Should You Perform One?

An SEO content audit is a full rundown of all the indexable content on your website. It gives you actionable insights into your content marketing strategy, showing you what’s working and what isn’t. And when you know what’s working, you can then double down on it while ditching the stuff that isn’t working.

For example, you’ll be able to sift through your content to find out which articles perform the best, which receive the most engagement, and which put rocket fuel into your conversions. 

Not just that, but an SEO content audit also allows you to optimize ranking signals and influence PageRank the right way. The more times you perform content audits, the higher you will rank – or, at least, that’s the idea. It all depends on the conclusions you draw from the results and what you do next (we will take a look at this soon).

That said, you don’t need to go crazy and perform an audit, say, once a month. Aiming for a content audit each quarter is a good rule of thumb. If you have a fairly new website and haven’t yet performed a content audit, now might be the time to do it.

Let’s take a look at what you need to do.

5 Engaging Types of Video Content that People Love to Watch

Video Content

People love Internet videos – it’s gotten to the point where a full 85% of people in the United States watch videos online at least a few times during the average week. Videos are naturally compelling and engaging and, thanks to the use of relevant visuals, are an opportunity to convey even complicated topics in the most simplistic way possible – all of which are major reasons why people can’t get enough of them.

But using video content is less important than the type of content you use.  Different formats bring their own unique advantages to the table, and by varying up your content you stand the best chance at really resonating with your target audience. If you really want to increase engagement, improve conversion rates and increase social shares, there are a few key types you need to be aware of.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Developing Content That Works

content marketing

It’s great you’ve decided to engage in content marketing.

The content you create is key to your audience’s hearts and purses. Some realize it. Others suffer. 60% of b2b marketers create at least one piece of content every day. 

According to Aberdeen, YOY growth in traffic for content marketing leaders is almost 800% higher compared to followers. 

That’s the reason why it’s so important to have a rock-solid content strategy. 

However, it can be tedious and overwhelming. There are so many things to figure out ranging from what kind of content to write, its frequency, to decide on setting up a new blog or hosting the content on a channel like Medium. 

What if I gave you the step by step method to get the content wheels turning?

But prior to starting, keep in mind that content is powerful. The kind of content you write holds the ability to draw specific types of people. If your content isn’t aligned with the service or product you offer, conversions would be dismal. 

The right content marketing strategy takes the guesswork out of content. It details out steps to research and creates engaging content that’s valuable to your audience.

Primarily it should aim at solving problems. The first thing that comes to mind when you think about content is a bunch of words. However,  it can be textual, audio or video content. Such content is very effective at generating leads day in and out.

How to Create Engaging Content in the “Boring” Industries

engaging content

One of the strategies that you can implement when preparing a marketing strategy is content marketing. Many marketers are stuck on the phase of developing an editorial plan because they cannot come up with any topic that wouldn’t bore the readers to death.

This article gives you a way out of this situation.

What are the Boring Industries?

First things first, let’s define what boring industries are. Accounting, insurance, banking, and law almost certainly fall under this category. Plumbing, roofing, real estate and many others do as well. 

In fact, most industries can be called boring because the content they can produce is not newsworthy. What are the interesting industries then? Eco-friendly shopping bags or hipster shoes? They’re not interesting, they’re trendy. 

If you continue to describe industries as interesting and boring, think of crab fishing. It is an industry, where lots of bearded men sail the sea in gloomy weather and perform a series of boring and repetitive tasks to get some crabs out the water and sell them. Yet it has its own Discovery Channel documentary that millions of people enjoyed. 

It is not about the industry itself. Rather, it is about your ability to show the most interesting things in the industry. If the oil industry could do it, as a case study in Forbes suggests, you can do it too.
