How To Write Relevant Website Content in 2024

The new year is here! Now is an ideal time for business owners and marketing teams to reflect on their overall search engine optimization strategy and make informed decisions on how to improve on-page content. Creating website content that resonates with your audience remains a crucial aspect of SEO success. As we begin 2024, read this comprehensive guide to writing website content that stays fresh and engaging for your audience, while also staying in line with Google’s changing algorithms.

Know Your Audience

Creating relevant content begins with understanding what your audience is looking for. User intent remains the foundation of successful content creation. Analyze breakout search queries and topics on tools like Google Trends to be more informed about what users are looking for. Find the keywords that relate to your industry to create content that precisely addresses your audience’s needs. Your content should always provide value to your audience. Google Analytics 4 provides valuable insights into your website metrics and KPIs, and recently, it’s been evident how much engagement matters. Tailored content is more engaging, meaning your audience is more likely to read through your pages and respond positively. Whether your goal is to sell a product, promote a service, or convert an online user into a customer, writing for your audience significantly increases the likelihood of a conversion.

Focus on Helpful Content

Google regularly rolls out algorithm updates that are aimed at refining its search engine results to provide users with useful content. In the past, Google announced the Helpful Content algorithm update that rewards content that would be fundamentally helpful to a user, while devaluing content that fails to provide helpful information. This algorithm has recently been updated to follow an E.E.A.T acronym: focusing on experience, effective, authoritative, and trustworthy. In 2024, it is important to note how Google continues to prioritize helpful content over other content types. Write content that is designed for Google’s algorithm while also being genuinely helpful to users. Not only does this content rank better, but it also makes a better impression on new customers.  Ask yourself: does your content actually answer the question someone is searching? 
Here are some additional tips to ensure your content is aligned with Google’s Helpful Content algorithm:
  • Write people-first content, while also playing to Google’s algorithm guidelines
  • Use FAQ schema to show Google that your content is answering on-page questions
  • Do not overstuff keywords in your h-tags or anchor text
  • Ensure your entire page is optimized to be helpful, not just one section
  • Keep your page title, h-1 tag, and first paragraph consistent with the overall content topic

Writing SEO-Friendly Content

Now that you know how Google ranks website content, let’s explore some strategies to ensure your content is SEO-friendly. As mentioned, it’s important to understand your audience’s interests and create content that resonates with them. But how exactly should this content be written? To start, always use clear and concise language to ensure your content is easy to read and understood by a large audience. Produce high-quality, engaging content that is informative, well-structured, and valuable. Additionally, incorporate keywords naturally throughout the content. Be sure to optimize page titles and meta descriptions to accurately reflect your content and encourage clicks. To improve readability, use short paragraphs, h-2 and h-3 tags, and bullet points. Creating SEO-friendly content takes a multifaceted approach. To monitor your current performance, use tools like Google Analytics 4 to analyze metrics like organic sessions, engagement rates, conversions, and more. Take the time during the new year to adjust your strategy as needed.
