I can never get bored of reading basic seo posts when they are well written.
For me, it was content creation week and how it helps with SEO. This from Naked seo.

Striving for the perfect landing page is something every SEO worth her salt should be doing.

How to Business Blog Without Being Unprofessional
It’s a tricky one, because what works with a blog is the relaxed, conversational style and this is an awkard fit into the business world. But it can be done.
This from the most Excellent Chris Garrett.

Excellent post from Cre8pc regarding the kind of content you can have on your website.
Here is what Kim Krause Berg had to say, although as a Brit, I’m not sure about getting spunky!
“Be spunky. My family business web site project could do this even though they insist they don?t need anymore clients. They do, however, travel and apply their expertise wherever they go on the work projects that take them everywhere. Their stories are an education. If you?re rich and satisfied, teaching can be rewarding and still keep your brand out there.”

From the amazingly prolific and spot on Dosh Dosh by Maki an excellent primer on creating content for your blog.
This from Maki
“Mixing up different content types will give you flexibility during the content creation process and allows you to prioritize effectively. For example, when you?re writing a linkbait article for a specific blog, use a simple video post for another blog to save time and energy.”
I would add to that, it’s important to mix it up so you can see what works and what does not. Constantly test and don’t get stuck in a rut with one type of format.
Organic links via content writing
Outstanding podcast from Robert Mineo regarding building quality content for organic links. Seems obvious doesn’t it, but why do people dump money into paid links when they could pay a content creator or linkbaiter to write brilliant copy which gets links naturally, and which carries on getting links long after the paid links have vapourised?
The Beginning SEO Podcast goes on to talk about,
“Instead of obsessing about links, think a little about adding fresh, quality content. It may take a little longer but it’s a wise investment.”
The podcast is definately worth a listen.
