Applying the “Golden Rule” to Blog Writing

Portland SEO CompanyWhen writing content for a websites blog, it’s important to write knowledgeable, high quality content. A good way to ensure the quality of the content written is to apply the “Golden Rule”. Ask yourself, would you want that quality of content to represent your business? The way you answer this question is a good indicator of whether or not you’ve written a good blog post. The quality of your content is vital but so is variety. The current search engine climate dictates that you should cultivate creative, unique and diverse content on your website. This means that choosing a topic to discuss could be harder than ever. We have found that a good mix between business, community, and personal topics is often achievable and very effective. Business can get boring, so its important to inject fun into your blog. Do this by incorporating local events, community news, industry jokes, and other fun, yet relevant topics. If you choose to write something personal, make sure it’s not too personal. A few good topics could be your experience at a recent industry conference, a discussion you had with a colleague, or an experience that inspired you in your business. This variety will ensure that your readers do not get bored, and your content is rich and compelling.

The Golden Rule

A good rule for writing is to respect the readers as if you were the reader yourself. Putting yourself in the reader’s shoes is a good way to ensure you’re producing quality content that’s applicable to the site it’s for. Would you want to read the post? If so, what would you take away from it and would you be inclined to return to the blog in the future to read future postings? It’s important you’re able to answer “yes” to these questions so that you can ensure that your site is developing in a positive manor. This will give your business the best chance to thrive and have continued success online!
