Weight your content to the start

People often won’t read it all.

Get your facts straight and source from reliable, trustworthy sources. E.g. those with domain authority i.e. doing well in the Search Engine Results Page SERP, or the horse’s mouth.

Don’t use idioms like ‘the horses mouth’ that can be confusing.

Use subheadings

  • Break up long body copy with subheadings are H2, H3, H4, etc, so include relevant keywords within the subheadings.

Timing is everything 

The deadline is your friend and motivation.

  • If it’s a newsworthy press release, include the embargoed until date and time, and release up to a week in advance to the press.
  • Schedule blog posts for the same or similar times each day if producing regular content.
  • Consider the popular times of users on the social platforms you share on.
