SEO writing tips: A love/hate guide

Posted in Tips on 10 July 2014
I have a confession. It’s a deep, dark secret that I’ve hidden for way too long, and I need to get it off my chest.

I hate SEO.

OK, hate is a strong word. Maybe too strong. And no, I don’t hate it, but there have been times when the keyword-injector utility has not been my best friend. As a writer, I can’t be alone in that sentiment. Can I?

I think the first time I really understood SEO—what it does and what it means and how to do it—I felt creatively stunted. What, I can’t use that way-too-clever headline? Or that funny phrase I coined all on my own? It’s pithy, creative writing, so just get off me, SEO experts.

Except not.

I can’t use that headline because nobody’s searching for it—and because SEO-infused phrases outperform their SEO-less counterparts every time. Example:
• Clever headline: “From beets to leeks, meatless eats for kiddo treats!”

• SEO headline: “Six easy vegetarian recipes for kids”
Who’s searching for “beets to leeks” or “meatless eats for kiddo treats?” Nobody—other than me (and maybe my mom). Who’s searching for “easy vegetarian recipes for kids”? According toGoogle’s Keyword Planner, a bunch of vegetarian parents.

As much as I’ve felt my creative energies have been thwarted in the name of optimizing content, I’ve realized its benefits. For one, SEO gets the content in front of more people than me (and my mom). It also helps me cut the crap (see clever headline example, above).

I’ve learned how to use SEO as a writer, too. For any of my scribbling comrades who have also felt stunted by the red ink of an SEO editor, here are my tips:
1. Work with what you have. When the SEO gods said to infuse content with relevant keywords, they didn’t mean to litter your work with them. Be subtle. Identify places to insert searchable phrases, and skip it where it doesn’t make sense.

2. Post a sticky note. I have a reminder on my computer screen that says exactly this: “Research. Links. Natural.” It may not work for you, but it helps me remember to (1)Research keywords at the beginning of every writing project; (2) embed those keywords in links when possible; and (3) write naturally and don’t kill the copy’s flavor with too much SEO seasoning. 

3. Supplement search with creativity. If I had felt so strongly about my “beets to leeks” headline, I could have combined the two: “From Beets to Leeks: Six easy vegetarian recipes for kids.” By doing this, there are ample ways to accomplish search optimization with a wordsmith’s twist.

4. Realize how it helps. Were it not for SEO, much of my stuff might never have seen the light of Google’s day. As a writer, I owe thanks to SEO for publicizing my (andMarketwave’s and my clients’) work, far and wide. That’s worth all the clever words I’ve sacrificed along the way.
SEO skills are a must for budding and experienced writers. I might never master the craft, but I’m sure learning (to love it) as I go. What are your tips? 



eBay Store Believed to Be Apple-Operated

Posted in News on 10 July 2014


It appears Apple may not be able to keep secrets very well.

Apple image — The iPhone 5C.

That’s the impression after a ‘secret’ eBay store has popped up selling a number of iPhone 5 models. It’s a very similar type factory outlet store that popped up on eBay in the fall of 2012.

Apple Insider twigged to the store this weekend and noted there’s roughly half a dozen factory restored and unlocked iPhone 5 models for sale ranging in price from $449 to $499.

Speculation is Apple has set up the store in anticipation of a new model of iPhones coming this fall.

“The move is likely an effort on Apple’s part to diversify its inventory distribution of existing devices in the months leading up to this Septembers annual iOS device product launches,” reported Apple Insider.

“Apple made a similar move back in March of last year when it launched a Apple Certified Refurbished Products Store that sold refurbished iPads at $100 less than on Apple’s own online store.”

Both Apple Insider and Tech Crunch reported there’s no proof linking Apple to the new store but, as the latter stated, after failing to receive comment from either Apple or eBay on the matter, it certainly appears to be a likely reality.

“After all, if this were some random third-party seller or “just a big misunderstanding,” eBay would likely help to correct the earlier reporting, which is now spreading through the Apple blogs like wildfire,” Tech Crunch reported. “That being said, the store could also be run by an authorized Apple reseller.”

The 2012 store quickly vanished from eBay with Apple Insider eventually learning its origins. It was part of a three-month program Apple was operating but chose not to renew.
