Unique SEO Content

ducksYou are probably already aware of how important link building is, and how important it can be to select the right meta tags, and to select frequently searched keywords that can be added to your website for the purpose of boosting search engine optimization or SEO, but are you also aware of how easy, inexpensive and effective it can be to use fresh and unique website content to drive an increase of traffic to your website through SEO? This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to garner higher rankings in the most popular search engines like Google, MSN and Yahoo, and it requires little to no technical expertise at all.

If you add fresh content to your website regularly, you will be effectively increasing the visibility of your website by boosting your search engine rankings naturally and easily.

It is important that you avoid making the SEO mistake that so many other websites are making, which is that they are failing to add new, fresh and unique content to their websites on a regular basis. They spend hundreds of dollars or even thousands of dollars designing the look of their website, and then it fails in the search engines because they believe that once the website is running, their job has been completed. The truth is, if you stop updating your website once you have taken it live, you are doing something very wrong.

Why is this? This is because search engines love and feed on fresh and unique content. This is so true, in fact, that they literally troll the internet specifically looking for websites that have updated their contents. In the world of search engine optimization or SEO, content is the king.

Adding fresh content will help to significantly improve your search engine results, because search engines are literally constantly on the lookout for websites that have updated content, making sites with fresh and new content the best on the web. You can easily give these search engines what they are looking for simply by regularly updating the content that is on your website, adding informative articles and refreshing the content on other pages. Your content should never simply sit still or stagnant unless you don’t want people looking at it.

If you are unsure about writing the content yourself, you should have no trouble finding help online as there are plenty of proficient writers capable of writing niche specific content for your web pages, you simply need to know where to look and what to ask for. SEO writers are writers that specialize in search engine friendly website content creation, and they will deliver polished work that is web ready. They can write search engine friendly content for your website that is written specifically so that it can be found and indexed by search engines, and they will write website content that uses your keywords naturally and in a fitting manner in order to benefit your human readers as well. SEO writers are designed to write with your marketing goals in mind, so if you are afraid to craft your own content, do not be afraid to ask for some assistance.

Blog Copyright

Blog Copyright is a simple wordpress plugin by the Blog Traffic Exchange. It injects a copyright notice into the blog footer. You can see it in action on this very site.

The copyright notice automatically updates the year range as time goes on removing the need to ever revisit your copyright once the plugin is put in place…

For example, this website was started in 2008. So between the start date and the end of 2008, the copyright notice will look like this…

© 2008 Blog Traffic Exchange All Rights Reserved

Beginning in 2009 the copyright notice will automatically change to…

© 2008-2009 Blog Traffic Exchange All Rights Reserved

and so on and so forth.

You can adjust a variety of options including the starting year and the rights reserved statement.

I would like to thank Tough Money Love for pointing out the need for an accurate and legally binding copyright notice.  For those interested the notice requirement is in Section 401 of the Copyright Act of 1976. While the display on the copyright notice is not required in order to copyright the blog (thanks to the Berne Convention Implementation Act amending the Copyright Act of 1976), failure to use a notice provides an opportunity to an infringer to claim that the infringement was “innocent” and therefore can reduce or eliminate recovery of damages from that infringed by the copyright owner. This is a particular concern in the blogosphere where copying of content is rampant by folks who claim not to know any better. Use of the notice takes that “I didn’t know any better” defense away.

For this reason alone, not using a proper notice is silly.
