SEO copywriter skill set
Content for web should “read” as naturally as possible, while satisfying the need to include the targeted term in order to generate SEO traffic. There is no prescribed density for the inclusion of keywords on a page, only that you can’t just go and stuff the targeted term in everywhere.
An SEO copywriter should be capable enough to effectively communicate, in an elegant manner, the required message to the target audience. The words on a web page need to be carefully crafted – assembled to elicit the desired emotional response. The targeted term should integrate seamlessly into the story.
Care must be taken to insert the targeted term throughout the page. It must be spaced in a reasonably even fashion from start to end. This is known as linear distribution and a proven method for optimising content. Synonyms are also encouraged and should be used as a “catch all”, which can be effective for latent semantic indexing. For example – “keywords” is synonymous with “targeted term” and an appropriate alternative to the repetitive stating of target terms.
Incidentally, the last two words of the paragraph above are variants, and not to be mistaken as synonyms. Google views variants the same as the targeted term, which could negatively impact the perceived quality of a page if overly used.
And finally, body copy must contain a minimum of 300 words (500 is ideal). Pages with less content are considered “thin” content and will result in a penalty.
