Despite recent changes to the fundamental way users are searching for information on the web, content is still king. Creating relevant, engaging content takes a lot of work, and requires a certain type of skill-set and also the correct tools in moving a website up the ranks of search engines. At Sprout Media Lab, our team of experts understands the importance of cultivating creative content that ranks.

Why is content important?

Content is everything for a website. It’s what viewers consume, and if it’s good and relevant to them, they will keep coming back to your site for more. Content that is optimized for keywords will get the attention of the search engine algorithms, and the website will be ranked favorably.

Ignoring the importance of kingly content is the death of an online business. Forget about comprehensive advertising strategies and pretty graphics. If the content is terrible, unengaging, and not at all relevant to the target audience, the site is a zombie. It will quickly get buried by more robust and lively sites with better, more relevant content.

How does a business owner create the right content?

With time, practice, patience, and up-to-date SEO knowledge.

It’s understandable that a business owner can become quickly overwhelmed with these requirements; you’re a business owner, not a superhero. The right kind of content requires an engaging writing style, relevant keywords, and an optimized platform to host it on. There are a lot of ingredients that need to be baked into the content pie.

Certain tools can give valuable insight into how to create the right content for certain keywords, such as Buzzsumo and Portent’s Content Idea Generator. These tools take time to learn though, and you must also possess at least a rudimentary understanding of website content creation and SEO, anyway.

The experts at Sprout Media Lab already understand everything there is to know about creating engaging, compelling content that ranks.
