Why is Content Writing Important?

Why is Content Writing Important?

Content Writing helps to engage the visitor and encourages them to come back, not only this content writing, written on a continuous basis helps to rank your website and gives domain authority.

I have in the past successfully written posts and used the following technique I am about to share with you to get domain names indexed and ranked.

My Strategy.

  • Write engaging quality content about your niche.
  • Monetize your article with affiliate links.
  • Perform SEO (add keywords, meta descriptions).
  • Forward your domain name if you have one to the article.
  • Upload the link to your article (your page) to Google Console Manager manually.
  • Wait a few days for Google to crawl your site.
  • Share your article on social media.

Content writing is an essential part of getting business because it draws prospective clients to your website.

A website that is static and does not have regular content on its pages will never move up the ladder in terms of the ranking of domain authority, in fact, may eventually start disappearing. The name of the game is to get your website on the first page of search engines and keep it there, whilst not letting your content become stale. No one wants to keep coming back to a boring website, especially if you are promoting services rather than selling products.

Search engines prefer to see websites that have new content. As an example, I have a static site called www.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk and at one point it was on page 5 of search results so because I do not have a blog for this particular static website, just a page titled blogs. Hence what I have started doing is adding backlinks to the articles I have previously written and published on my other blogs. This creates content for my static site whilst boosting my articles from my other sites. You do not have to have to use your own articles but publish links that have high Moz Domain Authority to other sites relevant to your niche.

The best way of attracting customers is to create quality content that can encourage people to read your articles.

Simply posting and forgetting your articles does not help, one needs to go a step further and share your content on social media platforms, groups, and pages. Granted providing you do your SEO correctly your article will be indexed and ranked but it does not bring traffic in quickly. One needs to do networking and share articles to email lists and directly to your connections. Depending on your budget you can also consider PPC advertising to boost traffic but always try the free options first. With my strategies, I have not had to pay for PPC advertising for many years and have saved myself hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Having an exact match searchable keyword or phrase domain name plays a small part in search engine optimization and it is the content writing by far that attracts visitors.

Usually writing something that businesses and people can relate to and offering problem-solving strategies will bring people to you.

If you have time to write articles yourself or have a content writing department you can get your staff to write articles on your behalf, alternatively, you can outsource the work and use companies such as Fiverr, the link is below or hire us directly.

Keep your business moving forward

Remember a static site will sit in the same place and may even move down the ladder as more websites are created if you do not do content marketing. The same is said if you list a domain name for sale on your website and do not perform SEO how do you expect anyone to find the domain name if you do not write quality content and give the prospective buyer an idea of what your domain is about; if it is developed?, if it is generating traffic?, and is on the first page of search engines for the search terms?

It amazes me how many websites that have not branded themselves to the extent that they hire PR and Marketing/Advertising Agencies wonder why they are not getting enough business in through the door is because they are not offering something that is engaging and catching the audience’s attention.

Your website should be on the first couple of pages of Google primarily in the No 1 spot and you should talk about your business with the world just like you would have weekly staff meetings. People get bored of the same content all the time. You have to write quality content so the search engines can see there is something new about your website.

SEO

Not so long ago go someone on the first page of Google because he was in the process of building a website and needed an immediate online presence. I successfully did that and as a consequence gave him a backlink that gave him domain authority when his website got launched by a third party he was using. I mentioned his name and his website throughout the body of the content not only in the header title and performed SEO.

You can do this also and if you do not have time to do it yourself then outsource the work or hire us.

It is cheaper to do content writing and have backlinks from websites that are already indexed and ranked; than paying costly pay “Per Click Advertising”.

Some third-party backlink services charge for quality backlinks which cost anything up to $50 – $500 per link our MOZ Domain Authority is (9) which tells you Google will favor your links and boost your ranking if you are mentioned on our site. Yet you only pay for the content writing and not the backlinks which we give you for free.

Visibility

If you want more visibility we offer a monthly marketing plan and you get banner ads on our websites and a landing page all for one price.

Pricing

Here is our pricing for content at a glance, it is less than a night out at a pub or a take-away.

UK Content Writers

(The Domain Name Belongs To Us And Is Part Of Our Marketing And Advertising Strategy. It Serves As An Advertising Banner).

Would you rather invest in something that can boost your ranking and drive traffic to your website or are you content simply having a landing page that people visit but then do not do anything and just leave with the risk of not returning?

Monetization

You should also consider monetizing your articles, and chose affiliate links that match your niche and what you are writing about, rather than adding random adverts. By embedding affiliate links you are giving people choice whilst making money simply by promoting someone else’s product or service.

Keep your business moving forward

Another way to monetize your website, and the blog article is to get other people to be the affiliates and you as the advertiser give the publisher a commission if your product; and service sell using tracking algorithms with a company that I use called Awin. Millions of companies give publishers the opportunities to market their products and services so you can also be one of them. As an example, you may find domain brokers not selling your domains quick enough but imagine if you could give a commission to someone who could find you a buyer.

(Disclaimer- Please read my previous article about domain names because unless they are short one-word dot coms or have equity, you will find it very difficult to sell unless you can perhaps find a domain investor or startup possibly purchasing your domain name for a project they may have in mind. Not everyone has deep pockets).

If you have any questions just drop us a message using the form below, it could be you have a bespoke project and may need a little help getting traffic.

‘The Girl Who Disappeared’ Book Written By ‘James Lingard’

The Girl Who Disappeared Book Written by James Lingard.

About James Lingard:

Author /-Retired banking and insolvency lawyer- Tonbridge, England, United Kingdom

THE GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED, is a fact-based novel with a strong female lead inspired by real events taking place during WW2 in Britain.

Emily falls passionately in love with working-class Walter, despite fierce opposition from her class-conscious father. She resolves to elope to escape such a male-dominated society. Her actions will see her struggle to survive the devastation brought about by the war, as she and her four-year-old son are thrown into the midst of danger and death.

They experience rationing and the terror of bombing. Their air raid shelter is destroyed by a direct hit.

The Girl Who Disappeared is a moving love story about one woman’s enduring resilience, a story full of quiet humor and surprising twists and turns.

‘Wow! What a good book’ (Goodreads reviewer) ‘James brought their lives to life’ (Library Thing reviewer) ‘A beautiful historical blend of fact and fiction. This book was an emotional read for me, and James Lingard gets a thumbs up. 5stars.’ (Readers Favorite)

Details of the book are at:

The book has been featured in Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo blog at:

https://wp.me/p1wss8-mS0

Also, James’s publishers have now launched my new thriller, THE CAUCASUS CAULDRON. MI6 spies; Russian FSB; Chechen terrorists; Abkhaz Separatists; the 1992 Georgian war.

This breath-taking and the brutal novel is set in the Caucasus Mountains during Georgia’s ill-fated invasion of Abkhazia in 1992. The Caucasus Cauldron gives a vivid focus to a world ripping itself apart and ravaged by never-ending hatred and blood feuds. Can our hero, Mac, trust the attractive Russian FSB officer, Kris, who befriends him and how will she react to Doctor Anna, a Separatist rabble-rouser who holds the key to his secret mission? And what about the mysterious Sergei, a former British agent, who seems to have disappeared? How will Mac cope with the Chechen terrorist who has vowed to kill him? ‘You are a dead man English. We know who you are. Now you die.’ The result is an intense action-packed thriller full of danger, death, and fear but a story full of quiet humour and surprising twists and turns.

Social Media Scammers

Social Media Scammers

Social Media Scammers and how Social Media should change to stop fake accounts.

Its all very well having social media platforms where people can register accounts but more should be done to stop fake accounts, this in turn would save thousands of people being scammed out their life savings.

These scammers usually target businesses as they think businesses are in the position to hand out hard earned cash.

I once challenged a supposed Prince who shall remain nameless yet I have serveral different invitations to connect with the said individual with several different accounts. I got so infuriated that I ended writing to the family office and suggested as a security measure they should contact LinkedIn and take down every fake account to stop this happening. I still have a phone number and email address for this one particular individual who claimed he was a ruler of a certain country.

I am sure you have had emails such as for example the Lord Reginald Cuthbert the III who is 99 years old and on behalf of his late wife who left millions of dollars in a trust fund for their daughter who got killed in a car crash, you get the type of email I am talking about. They usually are found in the spam folder along side scammers saying your account has been accessed and unless you hand over ex amount of money they will let a virus destroy all your files or will send explicit images to all your contacts.

Well now I have encountered another scammer and I am calling on the real person of this image below to contact me with their rank number and army base they are stationed at as verification and for them to remove the fake carbon footprint off the internet. This potential can save many vulnerable people falling into a trap and being scammed.

Why am I making this my business?. because this person has contacted me and keeps engaging in text and email to me, I am concerned if he is not real then that the next person he befriends may not be so lucky and may get scammed.

If the shoe was on the other foot and this happened to me, I would contact all the websites to take my photos down and where people were impersonating me I would verify my identity to a concerned party without being offended and would understand that they are meerly performing due diligence to safe guard themselves from fraud. I certainly would not make a big deal about it and I would respect them more for taking security measures. When I challenged the supposed Prince and asked him contact me via email he got very irrate and said am I questioning him and direspecting him? The person was very intimidating and I should have insited on a video call rather than simply chat via text message he is still on my whatapp as an active user and this is from many months ago.

What gets me this particular individual in this photo I have published has had a whole album of photos posted on the internet so was his whole computer hacked that is the question?

I have spoken with the supposed person this evening whom is an American yet sounded like he had a middle eastern person distinctive foreign accent.

I will try to get this individuals rank number but when I asked him what time it was over where he was he pretended to not hear me and did not reply. I already know the time difference if where he says he is legitimate.

Will the Real Soldier Stand Up!!

These social media sites should put a stop to all fake accounts and verify each user with photo id.

So considering we are supposed to be security conscious this is not happening and I want to know why?

I am so tempted to start a petition to make all social media sites verify each account holder with 2 forms of id including photo id and a recent utility bill. This will stop all fake accounts.

Surely this guy has family and friends so someone will know how to contact him?

How can so many of these images get leaked on the internet?

I have even seen a photo of his passport, regardless if it is fake or not, that is not the point, the bigger question is where is this real person in this photo and why is he not doing anything to help himself and remove the fake data and help others from falling prey to these scammers?

There is such a thing as GDPR for those that do not know one can complain to them and have ones incorrect search results removed. Also where is his Army buddies they too can contact him and let him know what is going on.

Where is the guy?

Please share to find this guy and get him to contact me. What worries me is this person identity is being cloned to the extent that fraudsters are doing all sorts of damage to this individual and surely the Military should be advised if he is on active duty.

All these fraudsters should go to jail for impersonating military personnel. In fact impersonating any person should carry a custodial sentence. There is a way of tracking these people down with reverse data api’s so surely the people in the know can track these scammers down.

I need to do some research and find someone high ranking that I can talk to, I have a few thousand connections on Linkedin so someone is bound to know someone that I can speak with.

This individual I have spoken with this evening does not convince me he is the real McCoy and I need to find a way of verifying his identity because if he is not the real deal he obviously has ulterior motives to pose as a high ranking soldier.

My father was a soldier in the Polish Army in WWII and fought the battle of Monte Cassino before settling in the UK. He wrote a biography which you can read by clicking the link here: https://www.blurb.co.uk/b/2039987-in-the-name-of-our-father-and-his-son

So I have great respect for our military past and present and feel sorry for the individual this is happening to.

Awaiting positive feedback on my investigation.

Stay Safe.

Addendum 08/05/20

Since writing this post a few days ago I contacted the supposed individual that had originally contacted me, by email and sent him a Non Disclosure Identy Verification Document for him to fill in and return to me. He seemed to get a bit angry by the tone of his reply in the way he wrote to me, I doubt that I will ever hear from him again.

“Online” Business Domain Names.

Online Business Domain Names.

Reading my daily emails and newsletters, I got to thinking after I read a Restaurant in London had gone into adminstration and how Gordan Ramsey has been critised for laying off staff. But what if there was an easier solution, what if you could give Deliveroo, Ubereats a run for their money, what if you started an online delivery option, where people could still eat fine food but from the comfort of their lounge. What if high end restaurants catered for the online trade? Afterall people have to eat.

Now I am only making suggestions here but why not turn a business around using the search terms examplebusinessonline.com or .co.uk Where you are a tradesperson offer buy now pay later incentives.

It is not hard to turn your business to be online, you just need the right keywords on your website and in your domain.

Remember the word “ONLINE” is “KING” at the moment. You can still use your brand name but not in the domain unless you are a household name. Instead use for example italianrestauntantonline.com or .co.uk or if famouschefonline.com do you get the picture?

There are so many combinations and if you are stuck just contact us for free advice, we are ready to help. I just recently helped a local solicitor www.cardiffsolicitorsonline.co.uk transition to online business and there can only be one “cardiff solicitors online” which I could have made into a directory but thought my client needed this.

So you have got my drift what are you waiting for?

Working From Home

Transitioning to an Online Business.

What ever you circumstances may be, whether you are a traditional bricks and mortar business selling products and services and have had to transition to working from home, or perhaps you have been recently been laid off here are some hints and tips to get you through these troubling times.

I will first cover traditional businesses that bricks and mortar, i.e shops and offices.

I covered 5 out of the how to in 7 easy steps in another blog I run: https://ukdomainbrokers.ukwebsitedesigners.co.uk/?p=866

I spoke about setting up an office in your home and how to enable chat online a must for businesses that want to interact with their customers on demand and how to set up online appointment scheduling a video meetings. I also mentioned about e-commerce and payment gateways.

If you are a shop or an office you should follow my 7 easy steps.

  1. Set up an office space in your home where you will not be disturbed
  2. Set up online chat www.talk.to (free)
  3. Set up online appointment scheduling www.reservio.com (free)
  4. Set up video conference calls www.8×8.com (free)
  5. Set up payment gateways www.stripe.com www.gocardless.com www.esrow.com (all free).
  6. Work the same hours as if you would do normally and speak to your staff and teams by having morning meetings.
  7. Sort out your finances look to see about Government grants to help you pay your staff.

Unemployed or Redundant

For people who have been made redundant or about to loose their jobs I have listed some ideas you can start to do freelancing, obviously most businesses need websites so that people can find you. You can also list your work with directories but for immediate effect a website/blog is the fast way of generating traffic. If you just lost your job the most important things you need to do is 1) Sign On. 2) Contact all your creditors and inform them of late payments or ask to have your payments deferred. Most Creditors are going to be very understanding including banks.

If you are stuck for ideas just send me a message and I will send you a full list of work you can do with little or no contact with other people.

I wiill aslo be covering how businesses such as electricians, driving instructors etc can get through these difficult times in another post. I believe that staying positive and optimistic will help us conquer this economic disaster.

If however you are out of work and do not want to set up your own business and would rather work for someone then this will be slightly more difficult considering the current climate we are in.

How about if you volunteer your services, businesses will be crying out for people to help them bring in business. You will stand a better chance of being hired and your position to be made permanent.

If you have not got a CV I would recommend downloading free templates from www.cvtemplatemaster.com then upload your completed CV to job directories such as www.indeed.co.uk or www.monster.co.uk

Finally if your stuck at home and boredom is setting in, why not turn your hobby into a business, if your arty you can sell your stuff on www.etsy.com or start writing a book (everyone has a story to tell) or make a photobook of all your cherished memories. There are dozens upon dozens of ideas you can do with your free time.

Remember people with low self esteems, as long as you stay safe and follow the rules and keep yourself busy we will all get through this and if any of my readers just want to have a chat or advice of any kind just message me in the comments below. It does not have to be about business.

***I will only respond to people the genuinely need to have a chat and not anything of the adult nature or dating as your comments will be deleted.

Also one last thing if you need legal advice and are in the Cardiff, Wales area I recommend this firm of solicitors.

Cardiff Solicitors Onine “Dudden Law”.

Roath Business Directory & Community Website.

RoathLife.com Official Logo 2020

Roath Life” in Cardiff UK has it’s own business directory and community hub website with a possible periodical (plans still in negotiation). The aim of the site is to get the Roath District of Cardiff closer together so that people can see at a glance whats on as well finding a local business on their doorstep.

Any entrepreneurs wanting to help with this project are more than welcome to contact me.

Please donate to help me to continue to develop this website and expand the business. (By donating you will help me employ some people to help me with the development of the site. I need help developing the site which is time consuming and by advertising small businesses everyone in the local community will benefit from this venture). Angel Investors or Private Equity Companies wishing to invest can get a commissions from sales from Advertising and Services Sold. But first I need a small team of people and I am not looking for loans, so please do not offer any. I am asking for £11,161.60 this will pay for two people minimum wage of £8.72 for 4 months full time work. By that time I should have enough business to cover the costs on my own.

Also if you are reading this and perhaps have been recently been unemployed, consider partnering with me, with no financial outlay just your hard work contribution in exchange for a commission on any lead that are secured by you.

I need a internet marketer in Cardiff UK, preferably Roath Area (who is familiar with the area), that can generate leads and who is able to do research as well as copy and paste content. This position is commission only at the moment until I can secure financing. Please send your CV’s and enquiries to info@roathlife.com

***Due to absolutely no interest from the public regarding donations, I have taken the campaign down from donorbox.org I have since found some freelancers on fiverr.com that can help me but is going to prove costly which at the moment it is money I do not have. I do not want to borrow money from the bank. So I will go it alone, it obviously will take me a lot longer to do and once it is built everyone who had the opportunity to help me (this is also includes my family and so called friends) and could but chose not to and turned a blind eye, can take a running jump. If someone asked for my help I know I would try rather than totally ignore them, I would definately try to support them in some way. You wonder why I have social anxiety and OCD, it because people do not support me but are the first to criticise.
