If you’ve landed on this post, chances are you suspect there’s something to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for small business marketing. As social media platforms grow and wane (and maybe even get banned), owned assets are everything. That’s where blogging comes in. Effective SEO blogging drives organic traffic to your website and converts visitors into loyal clients. At Brandcendent, I specialize in trauma-informed SEO blogging. I combine my expertise in multiple fields to deliver content that resonates and converts. This blog post explores how my SEO blogging services can transform your website visitors into clients so that your small business can thrive.

The Power of SEO Blogging

SEO blogging is the practice of creating high-quality, keyword-rich content that is optimized for search engines. The goal of incorporating SEO into blogging is to make it easy for potential clients to find you via the valuable content you create. Without SEO, your blog posts don’t drive organic traffic.

The right SEO blogging services help you increase your web presence regardless of changes to social media algorithms. In some industries, SEO blogging potentially can land you in front of higher-ticket clients than socials tend to.

While anyone can use AI to write a blog post now, the key to successful SEO blogging lies in providing a unique perspective and quality content. That can be as in-depth as original research or as personal as an anecdote. The point is that you’re offering something no one else is. This engaging content builds your authority with Google and keeps visitors on your site longer. This reduces bounce rates (people clicking away without reading your content). It also increases the likelihood that they’ll reach your call to action (CTA). 

Key Elements of an Effective SEO Blogging Strategy

Effective SEO blogging services are grounded in strategy. These are the key elements to incorporate when you get started.

1. Your Marketing Goals

Before you even get into brainstorming your blog post ideas, map out your marketing goals. Your blog posts should always align with them. If you’re trying to attract more users to your planner app, you can skip the blog posts about gardening. Unrelated topics will confuse Google and visitors. Also it will hurt your SEO.

2. Keyword Research

Keyword research is everything. An SEO keyword is the phrase a user enters in a search engine. You have to know what your potential clients are actually searching. That’s where keyword validation comes in. Our blogging services all include done-for-you keyword research to make sure your blog posts are going to get in front of as many people as possible.

3. On-Page SEO

On-page SEO refers to optimizing the elements within your blog post to improve its rankings on search engines. Some of those include:

  • Embedding the keyword within the copy
  • Writing meta descriptions
  • Structuring headers to make the content readable for Google and humans
  • Adding alt text to images

Alt text is a critical blogging component that often gets overlooked. It’s an accessibility feature that gives you the opportunity to embed relevant keywords and get found on image searches. If you’re curious about alt text, you can get my free guide here.

Brandcendent’s blogging services include all of these elements of on-page SEO because they’re so important for giving our clients a competitive edge.

4. Inbound and Outbound Links Strategy

SEO blogging is a journey. It requires consistency over a long period of time to get the biggest returns (one reason many businesses prefer to outsource it). One reason is that you’re building a web of links. Some will link your web pages to each other. Others link your web pages to other sites. Bother types are helpful for SEO.

5. User Experience

User experience includes high-quality content, which I mentioned in the previous section. It also comes down to structuring your blog post in a way that’s easy to navigate. Most website visitors will skim your content. You can use these elements to break up text and make it more readable:

  • Bullet points
  • Subheadings 
  • Relevant images 

The easier it is to navigate your content, the longer people will stay and engage with it.

Blogging Services that Convert Visitors to Lead

Good SEO blogging services don’t just attract organic traffic; it converts visitors into clients by building trust, providing engaging content, and leveraging strategic CTAs.

Trust Building

When your blog posts actually answer people’s questions, it builds trust with them. Clickbait makes people feel like they’ve been duped. By offering actual solutions, you help your audience see you as a trustworthy authority in your field. Case studies, client testimonials, and success stories are an important part of your SEO blogging strategy for this reason.

Engaging Content

Storytelling is the heart of marketing. That’s as true of SEO blogging as any other marketing channel. Infuse your brand’s personality into your blog copy. If you outsource blogging services, select a copywriter who understands your brand voice.

Clear CTAs

I can’t tell you how many businesses have told me their blog posts weren’t converting only to find out that they didn’t use any CTAs. Strategically place calls to action within  your blog post. Encourage readers to take the next step, and get creative about it. Not every CTA has to be to inquire with you. Learn more about how to use blog CTAs here.
