Some writers are aware that clients pay them to write content for websites (SEO writing), to improve their search engine ranking. These writers often produce quality work for SEO. If a client asks the writer to write articles that are keyword-rich and have a specific (keyword density), then the writer will be at the mercy the client. It is difficult to turn keyword-filled sentences into an article that flows well. Both types of articles, magazine-quality and SEO-friendly articles, pay the bills. You will earn a steady income if you are able to switch from one type to another. You will need time.
If you are planning to write SEO-friendly articles for websites or magazine-quality content, here are some things you need to know:
1. Your client’s needs will determine the length of your content.
2. You can either make it informative or keyword-rich. What are your client’s goals and what do they want to achieve with their articles?
3. In most cases, topics will revolve around keywords.
4. Protect yourself if quantity is more important to you than quality. Do not use your real name. Use a pen-name. It’s not fun to ghostwrite articles with a lot keywords aimed at search engine results, only to find out that your client (accidentally), attached your byline on those (almost) meaningless articles. This will be frowned upon by publishers.
