SEO Not Necessarily for Human Consumption

SEO Not Necessarily for Human Consumption

Mar 24, 2016

When writing SEO Salt Lake City for web bots, although correct grammar is not required, artful content creators will seek ways to weave the keywords into text that reads as if it is written for human consumption. This is a good practice because web bots are designed to react to actual content and discard content that is obvious spam. The question remains how competent a web bot is at this task. Content creators would do well to anticipate that web bots are getting better at their task on a daily basis. As such creating content as if the target audience is an actual human is good insurance against a web bot discarding the content as spam.

A typical strategy for most Utah SEO outfits is to create a series of “fake blogs” intended to trick the web bot into thinking it is looking at content written by a disinterested third party. This content need only be three hundred words in length (typically amounting to three paragraphs of one hundred or so words each). Within this content there should be at least two key words and two links back to whatever website the SEO content is trying to enhance in the search engine listings. Moreover, the content has to be mostly or completely original. To top it off, adding a picture in combination with the aforementioned seems to be enough (for now) to fool the web bots into thinking the content is sufficiently “legitimate” to positively influence the ranking of the website linked to in the content.

Ultimately, the more legitimate links to a particular website in existence out there on the web, the higher the website linked to will appear on search engine listings when searching for the keywords embedded in the content. As such one strategy employed by SEO outfits is to create content web bots will deem legitimate but not necessarily for human consumption.
