In this respect, writers and owners of websites aiming at winning marketing campaigns are constantly looking for ways to maximize the impact of the article on any given site.

Topically Relevant Article
To meet the desired aim of influencing traffic to the website, an SEO article need be of relevance to potential customers need. Find a sensitive topic about a certain product or service you deal with to arouse curiosity. Out of topic SEOs are likely to demoralize readers and thus deter traffic to your website. For instance, if an article promoting a product and linking to your online shop’ the website cannot relate well to the product’s topic of discussion, then readers – who happen to be the customers won’t get the zeal to proceed to the website link and buy the product from you.

Sit and jot down words, phrases that could relate to the subject. Make sure they appear in the article naturally without affecting the flow of the article and if possible to appear in the headline of the article to make it more optimized for search engine.
