How to get daily and weekly new website content for SEO and Digital Marketing
Companies, individuals, even aliens from Mars today absolutely NEED a great ranking website, if not on the first place, then at least in the top 10 results. In 2016 the most important criteria that Google likes, apart from backlinks, is “fresh” new content for it to rank a website high on their search engine. This holds true for other major search engines like Bing and Yahoo! too. Good content can drive a lot of traffic to your website or blog.
Below we have listed some ways that you can get great new content to publish on your website:
#1 – Do it Yourself
“”D’oh” is what you might be thinking. If I could do it myself, why would I be searching for this article? Well, we are here to tell you, don’t underestimate yourself. Find a topic and let the words flow, research the internet if need be. If you really try, good ideas come. Besides there’s tons of reading material like blogs, magazines etc. If you’re a writer already and have written articles before, you can rewrite or reproduce them instead of starting from scratch, and that can get the ball rolling.
#2 – If you produce podcasts or sermons, get them transcribed
Producing daily or weekly interesting podcasts with guests can be a daunting task in itself, and then trying to come up with engaging content for your website can be an even bigger task! Don’t fret, there are a lot of online audio transcription companies such as ourselves who will do the job for you. It only takes 1-2 days, quality is great, and it costs you only about a dollar per minute of audio.
#3 – Conduct interviews and put transcripts on your website
If you need great articles for your blog, simply pick up a sound recorder (or a recording app found on all smartphones these days) and start talking. You can reach out to experts in your field or niche, most of them will be happy to give you an interview for free or simply for giving credit to them and a link to their website at the end of the article. Just do make sure to have all the questions prepared beforehand. If you wish to put the interview audio on your website as well, make sure it doesn’t sound amateurish. Putting an interview transcript on your website helps with a couple of things;
- New website content
- Reading material for everyone, especially the hearing disabled
- Searchable online resource
#4 – Hire a content writing service or a freelancer
You can find literally thousands, if not millions, of freelance writers on freelancing websites, simply Google “hire a freelancer” or “freelance writers (your subject).” Of course without the parenthesis, and without “your subject”. Your subject needs to be YOUR subject, like cherry cheesecake or sewage uncloggers. What an awesome transition!
#5 – Find websites with free articles
There are tons of websites online now with tons of articles written about a ton of subjects. This absolute tonnage of content is available with a simple search on any of the search engines. Ezine articles is one such website, ArticlesBase is another. Be warned though, a lot of the articles are just horribly written, so you will have to do a bit of find and rescue to find good ones.
#6 – Put press releases on your website, or review them
If you follow a major brand or company that’s related to your niche, it would be a good idea to put out their press releases on your website. Just make sure to not copy paste the exact same content. Edit and paraphrase it and add your own anecdotes and opinions to make it original. If it’s in audio form, you can of course, again, get the seminar transcribed or the conference transcribed and put the transcript on your website.
#7 – Scan Forums
Scour the internet for ideas, literally head over to major forums which have users participating in discussions around your niche, take a look at their opinions, paraphrase them, and create articles based off of that. Journalistic writing 101.
#8 – Wikipedia
Free information right at your fingertips. Whatever your niche is, Wikipedia is sure to have information submitted by other people there. Again, don’t copy paste, but get inspired and create something new.
Translating documents from multinational press releases related to your niche can give you that global presence and make sure you’re not just limited to English speaking countries. You can post the original audio and then the translated transcript at the end to help your readers, as mentioned above. It’s a win-win situation!
#10 – Get your readers to participate
You can ask your readers questions, or encourage them to ask your questions, based on which you can come up with your very own FAQ page, and frequent FAQ articles which can be updated daily or weekly, thus giving people a sense of participation and community.
