6 steps of SEO-copywriting
Imagine that your web site through which you sell products or offer services is already in the top positions in search engine for specific queries. Your potential buyer – search engine user - can be quite meticulous. He won’t stop his choice at the very first line of search results. It opens e.g top 5 sites and will choose.
He will be surprised and perhaps disappointed when it turns out that the texts on the sites are the same, boring, outdated. User’s patience can quickly end. And suddenly on your site his attention attracted the title, clearly saying that “here's what you're really looking for.” User scans the text as it's easy to do since the main words on the page are highlighted and important features are in bulleted lists. With thanks for friendly text the reader will be focused on a paragraph. In this paragraph, in an easy accessible form is presented an interesting description of what he was looking with a few interesting facts.
