    "Content" on the web used to simply mean words on the page. In 2013 and beyond, web content has evolved to refer to any written communication on your website that speaks on behalf of your brand. Web content must be engaging, must serve the needs of your audience, and must accurately reflect the brand voice.

    Two types of content we're talking about here: Fresh content (i.e. – blogging) and static content (i.e. – traditional website content)

    Traditional website content best practices:

    • Consistent and consolidated
    • Use the right keywords
    • Google Insights
    • AdWords KW Planner
    • UberSuggest
    • WordStream
    • Long enough to tell your story, not too long that you're not saying anything new
    • Build a Keyword Map
    • SEs understand semantic language; learn to use this to your advantage
