According to G2, content optimization is defined as: “…the refurbishment of your website content as per the target audience’s needs. It involves revisiting and auditing old pieces of content, checking for tone and style, updating obsolete information, and writing for a larger audience. You can check for content and keyword loopholes, personalize headers, and educate readers.”
Whether you’ve had your website up and running for years, or you’re just getting started with a brand-new site, even in this day and age of AI, optimizing your website content matters.
Let’s talk about why.
Content Optimization Personalizes Your Website
A lot of businesses already “know” their keywords, and those are the ones they stick with.
However, they’re likely missing out on a lot of traffic if they don’t understand what their customer base is searching for.
Taking the time to learn how to use a tool like Ahrefs or SEMRush is worth it, but it does take time. These tools will tell you exactly:
- What keywords people are using to search for your products and services.
- How often those keywords are searched.
- The keywords your competitors are incorporating into their content.
Personalizing your site means tailoring the content to improve its visibility, and also…
Boost Your Conversion Rates
Conversion rate optimization (CRO) means improving the rate at which website visitors convert to customers, clients, subscribers, etc.
Doing this properly means testing various page components, like images and videos, to see which ones help the page perform better.
As you might guess, this can take some time. But great SEO isn’t implemented in a day, and when done correctly, it can take several months to see the results.
CRO carries the added benefit of lowering your customer acquisition costs because once you hit on what works, it will keep working for you.
Optimized Content Leads to Word-of-Mouth Marketing
When your website is optimized properly, it will start showing up more often in search engine results.
A great site that your customers love and that addresses their needs will result in happy, repeat customers.
And happy, repeat customers love to share with their friends and families.
Today, word-of-mouth marketing can mean:
- Friends talking about new businesses they’ve found over a cup of coffee.
- Stellar reviews on a business’s Facebook page or Google listing.
- Instagram Reels or TikToks featuring a company’s products just because the customer loves them.
Word-of-mouth marketing is powerful, and it’s a goal you definitely want to achieve if you want to grow your business.
