Not All Links Are Created Equal: Deep, Relevant and Backlinks in Relation to SEO Strategy, Authority and Meeting the Needs of the End User
Good links, at their most basic, are methods of creating a bridge between one piece of information and another. In today’s fast-paced, technologically diverse and ever-evolving world, understanding the way links are structured, to provide the most efficient and effective way of disseminating information is essential.
When Search Engine Optimization (SEO) took the world of content writing and digital marketing by storm, savvy content writers have become familiar with meta titles and meta descriptions. These two elements have become a very crucial piece in generating SEO friendly and click-worthy content.
Marketers often talk about the importance of brand identity. Sending out a consistent message to your customers and potential customers is vital. Part of this is the logo, colour schemes and brand name. It is also crucial that you don’t forget to find the voice, tone and style of your brand and consistently deliver content that reflects these.
Within daily life, we all have some form of ritual we look forward to; whether it’s dance classes at the gym, a coffee upon waking, or brunch every Saturday morning. Consider writing an article as an example. It may be an irregular activity for you, yet, whenever you do put the time aside, you work through the ritualised process of phases and the steps. Following these, you reach the end goal, with the sense of fulfilment that accompanies a project’s completion.
