Ever come across articles on the Internet that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever? Ever felt frustrated with articles that take you for a ride and leaves with you nothing but regret?for reading it that far? I don't know about you but I've read so many of them that I lost count. These articles are mostly stuffed with keywords because the writer believes that when an SEO article is stuffed with HUNDREDS of their selected keywords, search engines will love them. To them, the concept of SEO article writing is to write nonsensical articles with hundreds of keywords slotted in between words!
Forget about them! Search engines are smarter than that. With continuous efforts in fine tuning the spiders (search engine spiders ?crawl? from site to site, page to page to index pages), search engines, like the formidable Google, has decided that enough is enough. If readers don't like overstuffed SEO articles, THEY don't either. Some search engines have gone as far as to ban or block out sites that overstuff their web content with keywords! So, please do be careful.
Anyway, if you don't have the budget to hire an SEO writer to write your articles for you, I'll show you a very simple way to write SEO-friendly articles. It's not hard, I promise you.
Ok, let's get to it.
The topic and the direction
The first thing you'll have to do is to decide on the topic you want to write about?forget about the title. Titles are usually given when the entire article is complete. Reason? Well, you'll discover that the gist of the article, the flow and the content is not always the way you first intended for it to be. At the end of it, you'll find a title that is right for your SEO article. So, don't spend hours mulling over the title. Just get to it and write it.
I've heard of people spending hours writing a single article because they want to make it perfect the first time round. No, no, no, no?.that's not it. Remember, articles (especially books!) are never perfect the first time round. Accept this and you'll soon be writing tons of good stuff in the future! Just get to it and write it. You can forget about grammar and the flow. Just write it, ok?
Once you've completed your article, it's time to get to putting in the keywords that you want to put into the SEO article. At this point, don't worry about grammar and flow. You'll get to it soon enough?just don't worry about it yet! One word of advice, don't have too many keywords in one SEO article. Just one or two would be just nice. Start placing them into strategic places and in between sentences?but make sure they still make sense. The worst thing you can do is to piss your potential customers off, ok?
Writing articles for search engine is good for your business.

Editing and proofing
OK, here's where you get to correct all grammatical mistakes, insert more stuff that you think is relevant to your SEO article or remove stuff that you think is not suitable for your SEO article. Go through everything carefully?but remember, this is not the only time you're going to be proofing your article because?.
Yes, you need to re-edit and proofread them again the second time. To ensure that everything is completely correct, you can read them more than just twice or maybe even read the article backwards to ensure that all words are correctly spelt in your SEO article.
There you have it?your SEO article is ready to be published! Go ahead and try it yourself. Didn't I say it was easy?
