We’ve been reading a lot lately about SEO, changes to Google’s algorithm and a whole host of issues with content and blogging, and figured it was a good time as any to weigh in.
It seems, that we’ve gotten very far away from what great content is about. Not to say that SEO is dead, but let’s face it, the pendulum has swung too far in favour of creating content for bots, and not people.
Connecting with an audience, building a community around that connection, and extending a helping hand through thought leadership and our products and services is our collective goal.
We thought it would be handy for you to have a few steps that might serve as a guide to creating that kind of quality content.
