Authoring & Writing Content

In December 2016, I decided to increase my posting schedule from one post a week (on a Wednesday) to two a week (on Tuesdays and Fridays) in the belief it’d increase traf

I have never paid attention to consistency and frequency, publish when the post is ready, no matter when. But some claim this is important.

Not at all. For some of my sites my frequency is sporadic yet it keeps improving its ranked pages.

1x a week is fine!

Best way to write about famous people in my niche?

Authoring & Writing Content

On my site, I’ve included content about well-known people in myniche (1960s women’s fashion), such as fashion designers andmodels. I’m now worried that the po

One good strategy would be to write specific things about a person. Instead of a general bio, write about what topics people are interested in. Instead of "about person XYZ", write

why did person XYZ get divorced from her husband
did person XYZ go to jail?
what are the best movies from person xyz
...etc

you can find what people are searching for using this technique:

I never thought about writing more specifically about the person before in case I didn't end up with anything! I'll check out the video about the Alphabet Soup Technique and see what other people are interested in. Thanks for the advice!

I don't believe that the is anything terribly wrong with what you are doing. You could do some research and try to find some more obscure facts about those you write about (Jackie Kennedy did blah, blah, blah) and incorporate some of that into your articles.

You could also possible write about some lesser known or at least some that are less written about and you can become the authority.

Good Luck. Have a Blessed Day

I have written some content about less well-known people, but I was just worried about writing about the really famous ones. Thanks so much for the reassurance!

Anytime Yvonne. You will always be able to find help and encouragement from the members of this community. All the best to you. God Bless.

Reviewing a service - any different to reviewing a product?

Reviewing a service - any different to reviewing a product?

asked in
Authoring & Writing Content

I want to start writing service/event reviews as well as product reviews. Apart from reviewing a service as supposed to a product, are there any other differences between these

It can be different or the same - it's really up to you and how you wan to write the post. Personally, I do them pretty much the same, although I may have more emphasis on something like customer service, while a product review would not have that category.

I'm glad that I don't have to do anything different there. Thanks for replying!

Nope reviewing a service or product is the same. I've done lots of service reviews

That's a relief! Thanks for your reply.

Can I use a company name as a keyword?

Can I use a company name as a keyword?

asked in
Keyword, Niche and Market Research

While doing my keyword research, I found a keyword that has over 1.6 million (yes, million) searches, over 260k traffic, and a QSR is 97!

The keyword itself is the name

I use it every day, in keywords definitely yes.

Thanks! I'll definitely go ahead with using it now.

Absolutely, just make sure you say what specific jewelry it is so that you don't just rank for "Mark and Spencer". For instance, if I were to sell a M&S coat, I'd use the kw - "M&S Padded funnel neck coat"

Thanks for your advice!

Yes, you definitely can. You can use company names in your keywords, sometimes though you cannot use them in your domain name as many companies are really particular about their trademarks.

But of course, you can target any keyword you want on your website and your content can be relevant to that.

That's great! Thanks so much.

Is it ok for me to take my own images of shop fronts?

Is it ok for me to take my own images of shop fronts?

asked in
Authoring & Writing Content

One of my pages has details of vintage shops that I like and recommend. Would it be OK for me to take my own photos of the front of the shops and use them as images for my site

Thanks for your help here! :)

I don't think there's anything wrong with using photos of shops you take pictures. They will probably like the free press!

You can always use your own photos.

If you're not sure, just ask them!

Theoretically, they should be delighted about the publicity.....

Definitely! Just remember to optimize them before you add them to your media library.
