Why-Does-Word-Count-Matter-Top-7-Tips-For-Writing-SEO-Optimized-Content

This topic has become the talk of the town these days. Content writers and copywriters want to know the exact length of their copies.

Is it better to write long pieces, or should every copy be concise?

This question gives nightmares to many bloggers; accordingly, they opt for an ultimate answer. 

If you are one of those writers who want to know their content length, you have landed on the exact place.

This guide has got you covered.  

Remember, word count only matters if your content is of supreme quality. It is not the only ranking factor; therefore, you must consider other ranking elements and focus on content quality.

You write a 2500-words post. But what if your written content is of poor quality?

Obviously, you will fail to achieve the desired results. 

Does word count matter?

Yes, it does.

Article with Higher Word Count Ranks Better

As a content writer, you should consider SEO factors. Your post should be credible and relevant so that readers value your work.

If you think to craft short pieces of content to achieve the best SEO ranking, you should reconsider this.

The founder and CEO of Email Analytics, Jayson DeMers, revealed that Google shows longer content covering all the perspectives of a topic.

In this way, you should take plenty of time to craft content that covers the topic comprehensively. 

Why Does Longer Content Perform Better?

What is the psychology behind the success of long-form content?

This is because it deeply explains a particular topic. 

On the contrary, a shorter post cannot cover a topic on a deeper level. This is why a lengthy article creates a perception of supreme quality. 

Another reason is that long-form content is easy to scan. Research has proved that people skip reading the entire post and only go through 20% content. 

People only read the highlighted points, headings, and subheadings to get an idea of the topic. 

The million-dollar question is that how long should your article or blog post be?

Undoubtedly, you should craft lengthy posts, but how long?

Remember, word count, varies from niche to niche. Word count and quality are dependent on each other. 

Following these crucial points will help you generate a higher ranking.

How to Write Amazing SEO Content 

Content is the standalone element of SEO!

It is the material Google and other search engines present against users’ search queries. 

When a user searches for a specific query related to your niche, you obviously want him to reach you. 

Remember, your content pays off only when you grasp SEO writing skills. Once you hone the skills, producing high-quality content will be an easy task for you. 

You need to practice these seven SEO writing tips in order to appear in the search results. 

  1. Be Readers–Oriented 

First things first!

You should craft content for people. Google updates its algorithm regularly. You should follow these algorithms to stay ahead of every single change.

The more valuable your content is for people, the better your page will appear in the SERPs

It means that you have to provide readers with:

  • Practical steps 
  • Useful examples
  • Crystal clear information

If your content revolves around readers’ questions, it will be easier for search engines to show your results. 

  1. Figure Out Users’ Search Intent 

Google focuses on users’ search intent. Your content format, message, and call to action strongly depend on users’ search intent.

There are four types of search intent. These are:

  • Navigational 

Navigational intent copes with the situation where a specific user is opting for a page or site. This scenario works better when you have an already flourished brand.

Navigational related keywords include:

  • Cost of 
  • Brand name
  • Service name
  • Directions to
  • Informational 

Informational intent describes the scenario where a user is looking for some valuable information. Following are the keywords related to informational intent:

  • Tips
  • Guide
  • How to
  • List
  • Tutorial 
  • Transactional

Transactional intent copes with the situation when an internet user is ready to buy something. 

Following are the keywords related to transactional intent: 

  • Deals
  • Coupon
  • Price 
  • Buy
  • Commercial

Commercial intent copes with the scenario where a person is thinking about making a purchasing decision and wants to investigate his option. 

Following are the commercial-related keywords:

  • Review
  • Cheapest
  • Comparison
  1. Write Clickable Titles and Descriptions 

If you want to hook readers from the beginning, you should pay minute attention to crafting compelling title tags. A title tag, if written precisely, is the cornerstone of SEO.

A title tag is one of the most significant on-page factors.

Remember, bad meta titles and descriptions turn down the visibility of your page.  Shorter title tags perform better on the SERPs; thus, they take less time to read.

Your titles and descriptions should be shorter because they are easier for people to go through.

On the contrary, if they are too long, Google will truncate them with an ellipsis (…)

Google will not show more than 60 and 160 characters of titles and descriptions, respectively. How to keep titles and descriptions short?

This is where the need for an online word counter arises. A reliable word counter lets you stay within the limits of characters and write to the point. 

online wordcounter.png

Word counter online tool enables you to write comprehensive and click-worthy meta titles and descriptions every single time. In addition, with the word count tool, you can easily summarize your page’s content.

Moreover, it assists you in writing killer titles and descriptions so that people click them and land on your page. 

In a nutshell, this tool helps you write concise and enticing tiles and descriptions.   

  1. Create an Outline and Start Writing 

Create an outline and dive into the writing phase. Choosing the right topic helps you get a deeper insight into the piece. Remember, you have to produce a comprehensive copy. 

Break down the main topic into subtopics. If you need to add more spices to your article, you should consider creating a top-notch H1.

While writing H1, you should focus on these points:

  • Write a compelling and unique H1. It will stimulate people to read your article.
  • Incorporate numbers like ‘5 killer tips’ and ‘top 10 secrets’ in the H1. These types of articles get more traffic and social shares.
  • It would be best to use words like ‘where,’ ‘what,’ and ‘how’ in the H1. In this way, people can easily find out what the page is about.
  • Describe what they are going to read in the article’s body. 
  1. Focus On Structure and Readability 

Suppose you search for a special query on the internet and open one of the first-page results. 

How will you read that content?

Surely, you will use Ctrl+F to search your query. If you do not find the desired results, you will open another page with a better structure.

In terms of top-level content development, an attractive structure is vital. Subtopics or subheadings make your content easy to scan and read. 

How to make my article worth-readable?

  • Include lists and bullet points in your post.
  • Expand your post and include H2, H3, and H4 if required. 
  • Directly respond to the user queries. Include their questions in H2 and H3. 
  • Highlight key terms and ideas. Also, you can change the font size of the text. 
  • Remember, your one paragraph should convey one idea only. Hence, you need to divide your content into manageable and digestible parts. 
  • It is always wise to add a table of content to your content. If you have to write a 2500-word article, you should include a table of content at the very beginning of your article in order to let readers go through their desired section. 
  1. Include High-Quality Images 

Besides focusing on written content, including relevant images in your content is a foolproof step to enhance engagement and readability. 

Spreading different but relevant images across the page help users digest information perfectly. 

Also, you can use videos, info graphics, templates, and other types of visual content to catch people’s attention. 

Another benefit of incorporating images on your page is that they can be ranked on Google’s images section. 

  1. Proofread and Edit Your Content

If you want to stick readers around your article, you should pull them into the flow of your writing. It is good for dwell time, bounce rate, and conversions.

For achieving this, you have to:

  • Keep It Simple

Complex sentences will confuse your readers. As a result, they will hit the right button. 

Therefore, you have to make your content easy to read and simple. 

  • Keep It Natural

If your content does not flow naturally, you should edit it and make it conversational and natural. 

  • Remove All the Spelling and Grammatical Flaws

You can use online grammar checker tools to fix all the flaws. It would be best to do this manually and come to the content with fresh eyes.

ASUS ZENBOOK 14 OLED HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Richa Kapoor

Published

on

Asus has well-positioned itself in the Indian tech market when we talk about laptops and notebooks. They have recently introduced a new lineup and that has been grabbing attention. The high-end laptop from ASUS has carved a niche for itself. Asus Zenbook 14 OLED is one such from this present lineup and below is my take on this latest device.

ZENBOOK 14 OLED SPECS SHEET

Zenbook 14 OLED is 16.9 mm

Weighs 1.39 kg

Display with 2.8K OLED HDR NanoEdge

Powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, and Intel Iris® Xe graphics.

16GB RAM and up to 512GB SSD PCIe 4.0 SSD

Dolby Atmos sound system powered by a smart amplifier

ASUS ErgoSense keyboard, and ASUS NumberPad 2.0.

Asus has not shied from making the device look elegant and slim. It is lightweight and easy to use and carry around. Fits well in one’s hand and can be easily carried around at work or even for travel. The laptop is sleek in its design and keeping the style minimalistic works wonders for it.

You get a 16:10 2.8K OLED HDR NanoEdge touchscreen which has a vibrant display. This display is good to work on and the contrast is comfortable to work on. You will find it easy to work on this laptop and even viewing and gaming will be easy for the eye. With a good display what you really need is a good sound system and you get one in this laptop. The Dolby Atmos makes the experience worthwhile. The smart amplifier does make the sound quality way better. Making the entire experience a lot more engaged and wholesome.

Something which has been a personal favourite in this laptop is the touchscreen number pad it is without a doubt extremely useful and helps increase productivity for sure. You would realise after a few days of usage how it helps increase efficiency. When we are constantly working on the laptop what we need is a good webcam specially for our online meetings and calls. The 3DNR webcam provides the needful. You not just get good video quality, but also good sound and an AI noise cancellation facility making your calls a way easier and noise-free process.

The laptop gives no issues like heating or draining out. I am not a gamer but had tried a few low graphic games on the laptop and felt no glitch at all. For heavy graphic games, I might not be in the right place to suggest. In terms of battery, the laptop charged fast and helped function well for seven to eight hours. In the usage, there were a lot of video meetings and constant web browsing. In terms of battery, there is nothing for me to complain about.

VERDICT

Using the laptop for good over two weeks there was really nothing to dislike or complain about. Introduced at Rs 1,04,990 with a lot of offers on the price this is a high-end laptop. That is the only catch that this product has. One must look at the great design, fully rounded spec sheet, and some great additions like the numeric touchpad, great sound, and excellent display before making up their mind against the laptop due to its price tag. It is a well-rounded laptop which has something for everyone.

TATA MOTORS EXPANDS ITS ELECTRIC VEHICLE RANGE WITH NEXON EV MAX

Published

on

The Tata Nexon EV has been the most successful electric car in India and by some distance. Tata Motors already has more than 25,000 EVs on the Indian roads, out of which over 19,000 are just Nexon EVs. Now, the company has gone ahead and launched a more powerful version of the car called the Nexon EV MAX. It also gets many premium features not seen on the regular Nexon EV and more importantly the range has also gone up significantly. According to Tata Motors, the idea behind this new car is to enhance the appeal of EVs and expand the market with a new offering for customers who are looking for longer intercity travel.

Nexon EV Max

The Nexon EV Max is equipped with a 40.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which means the battery capacity is 33% higher than the Nexon EV. It results in an ARAI certified range of 437 km (under standard testing conditions), which is approximately 125 km more than the Nexon EV. The EV produces 143 PS of power and delivers an instant torque of 250 Nm available at the push of the pedal, resulting in 0 to 100 kmph time of under 9 seconds. At the same time, you also get a car that is heavier than the Nexon EV and has a slightly lower ground clearance.

With Nexon EV MAX, Tata Motors is introducing a multi-mode regen feature which will help drivers to adjust the level of regenerative braking through switches on the floor console. Customers can choose between 4 regen levels based on the driving conditions: Level 0 with nil recuperative braking, going up to the highest Level 3 aiding single-pedal driving. This will help the user to get a higher range depending on the remaining charge and traffic conditions. The car also gets auto brake lamps which get activated once a certain level of regen is achieved, this helps to alert fellow motorists.

You also get 3 driving modes on the car—eco, city and sport. Plus there are eight new features on the upgraded ZConnect 2.0 connected car technology. This means the ZConnect app offers 48 connected car features. The feature list now covers smartwatch integration, auto/manual DTC check, setting a limit for charging, monthly vehicle reports and enhanced drive analytics.

The Nexon MAX also gets more safety features like ESP with i-VBAC (intelligent – Vacuum-less Boost & Active Control), hill hold, hill descent control, electronic parking brake with auto vehicle hold and all 4-disc brakes. Tata says its battery and motor pack are IP67 rated for a weather-proof and worry-proof performance. The battery and motor warranty of Nexon EV Max is 8 years or 160,000 km.

In terms of looks and design the Nexon EV MAX is just like the Nexon EV apart from the new Intensi-Teal you see in the pictures. You also have the daytona grey and pristine white options to choose from while dual-tone body colour will be offered as a standard. The cabin is much more premium and gets additions like a jewelled control knob with active mode display, all-new makarana beige interiors, leatherette seats with ventilation for front passengers, air purifier, wireless smartphone charging, auto-dimming IRVM and cruise control.

The Nexon EV Max is available in two trim options –XZ+ and XZ+ Lux. These will be available with options of a 3.3 kW charger or a 7.2 kW AC fast charger. The 7.2 kW AC fast charger can be installed either at home or at the workplace, which helps in reducing charging time to 6.5 hours. A 50 kW DC fast charger will charge the car from 0% to 80% in just 56 minutes. Prices begin at Rs 17.70 lakh which is Rs. 3.20 lakh more than the Nexon EV. The top-of-the-line XZ+ Lux with a 7.2 kW AC fast charger will set you back by Rs. 19.24 lakh (ex-showroom).

APPLE DISCONTINUES IPOD AFTER 20 YEARS, AVAILABLE ‘WHILE SUPPLIES LAST’

Published

on

Apple has announced that it’s discontinuing the iPod Touch, and said that the product would be available ‘while supplies last.’

Confirming the announcement in a news post on Tuesday, the company said, “the spirit of iPod lives on” in all of its devices that play music, such as the iPhone, iPad, and HomePod Mini. The halt in sales of the last remaining model in Apple’s lineup of portable music players marks the end of an era.

First introduced 20 years ago, the original FireWire-equipped iPod model acted as just a portable music player, and Apple made models that were pretty much exclusively for listening to audio up until 2017, when it discontinued the iPod Nano and Shuffle.

While the iPod Touch has been embraced by some iPod enthusiasts as the new classic music player, it also found a following for those who wanted an iPhone-like experience but didn’t actually need a phone, reports The Verge.

Tony Fadell, one of the developers of the original iPod, mentioned in an interview with The Verge that the iPod team knew the iPhone could end up overtaking music players.

“It became very clear to us that there was a real threat from mobile phones, feature phones. They were starting to add music, MP3 playing, to the cell phones that they were shipping at the time,” he said.

The original iPod touch was released in 2007, the same year when the first iPhone had also released.

It has mostly the same hardware and software as the original iPhone, except for the calling features.

With Apple giving up on its iPod line, the tech giant is eager to direct its market audience toward its other products that offer music playback.

The halt in sales of the last remaining model in Apple’s lineup of portable music players marks the end of an era.

Digital transformation: Three driving trends for 2022

Sukhvinder Pal Singh

Published

on

The Covid-19 crisis has spurred the need for business agility, which has accelerated the need for digital technologies to play a new role—that of delivering organisation resilience. Increasingly, organisations are adopting more technologies to stay relevant and competitive, as they emerge from the effects of the pandemic, which has accelerated the pace of digital transformation across the world.

Digital transformation involves the upgrading of IT infrastructures and processes to improve speed and responsiveness, to support critical business needs. Earlier, building and implementing a technology-driven strategy and processes would take years. However, the impact of Covid-19 on businesses has spurred digital adoption, to equip employees for new ways of working and to achieve key organisational goals. Companies that have embraced this trend following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 have not only succeeded in enhancing their customer experience but have also strengthened their security and agility. 

Below, we discuss three major technological trends that will drive digital transformation across organisations:

Democratisation of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Across the world, organisations are rapidly adopting artificial intelligence (AI) to automate processes and drive value by making smarter business decisions, increase revenues and sales, and enhance inventory and parts optimisation. This is also creating a reference framework for organisations to follow as they continue along the path to further automation and digital transformation. 

AI-driven automation is ongoing, and it will not only continue to bring substantial benefits to businesses and change the way daily work activities of every sector are undertaken, but will also present many new possibilities for growth.

Currently, this technology needs a deeper knowledge base. For accelerated digital transformation, AI democratisation is needed, which involves making data available to every person in organisations of every scale, even without any technical expertise. This can be facilitated by providing user-friendly resources and support, such as pre-built algorithms, intuitive interfaces, and high-performance cloud computing platforms.

5G Deployments

India is witnessing accelerated 5G infrastructure deployment, both in urban and rural parts of the country. This development, which is fuelled by the rising adoption of modern technologies, will, in turn, lead to increased adoption of advanced ones such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, across sectors. Aided by 5G, these technologies will augment operations and, thereby, improve the profitability of businesses.

By the year 2025, 5G networks are expected to cover one-third of the world’s population, opening unlimited technological possibilities through better connectivity, more reliable networks, enhanced customer experiences and quicker processes. Reap the full benefits of 5G, companies will need to invest more in network infrastructure, especially cloud service providers.

Security at the core of digital transformation 

It is undeniable that incorporating digital technologies in all aspects of a company can led to significant improvements in how it operates and delivers value to customers. As organisations implement digitalisation, they are also discovering the vast potential of data, however, it can only be exploited after assessing and comprehending the full extent of its ramifications.

Digital transformations are being launched in high gear. As businesses rush to implement these technologies, security concerns may often be overlooked. In the race to achieve digital transformation, it is important for companies to build a robust security framework.

As digital transformation gains further momentum, it is vital for organisations to evaluate their security infrastructure. Safeguarding and protecting data privacy is easier to achieve when security is at the core of every aspect of digital transformation. This starts with security specialists understanding business priorities, and managers realising the role of security and its importance for the success of the business. Security should be viewed as an integral component of a company’s digital infrastructure.

As companies re-evaluate their business strategies for the upcoming fiscal year, it is important to keep up with digital transformation trends, which will assist them in developing improved and more efficient digital strategies. Lastly, organisations need to keep in mind that digital transformation is not just about selecting technologies and putting them to use, it is about aligning technologies to the company’s goals and adopting agile solutions that allow its employees to better adapt to the evolving markets. Only then will companies be able to deliver value consistently for all its stakeholders.
