How to Write for SEO in 2018


When I started out as an SEO copywriter back in 2013, I heard a lot of jokes from my friends about my new career. Who could forget this gem?

Writing for SEO in 2018 is much more about concepts than it is tying your content to specific keywords. So how can you optimize your content to be the best it can in today’s SEO landscape?

When it comes to marketing, especially online, many people don’t know where to begin tracking their successes, or their failures. On one hand, you can go down a rabbit hole with the wealth of information available and get lost in the technicalities. On the other, you could not track anything and go strictly on gut instinct.

The Hallmark Christmas Movie Guide to Ecommerce SEO

One of my favorite guilty pleasures during the holiday season is watching the terrible Christmas movies that the Hallmark Channel airs every year. Obviously, these movies are not created for me, but I can’t help but love how cheesy, predictable, and bleached-white each of these movies are. Why are all of the plots basically the same? Why does it seem like there are only 10 actors these movies have to pick from? I will never have the answers to these questions. But these silly Christmas movies can teach us a broader life lesson beyond “you have to feel the spirit of Christmas” and “everybody needs to leave their high-paying city job, dump their long-term significant other, and move in with the local manger mechanic in a non-descript New England town.”
