What is often neglected when creating content is whether it is written “easily” for the users to understand. For this, it is important to be aware for the below 2 elements.
Content matches the literacy level of users
When the writers who are familiar with their services and products create the content, they tend to use “terminology terms” such as technical terms and industry terms, which often gives the impression that it is difficult for the users to read. This kind of hard-to-read content causes users to leave the page and affects their evaluation criteria with Google.
However, it is not always the case. It is very important to know who you are delivering the content to, and grasping the literacy level of the target users, so the usage of terminology terms could be adjusted depending on the target audience. For example, in the case of “digital marketing”, when creating content for the users who are in this field, it is not necessary to avoid any difficult terms so much, compared to the users completely different fields. As from our experience, many clients who are mostly not in the digital marketing industry, often question “what is digital?” so it is necessary to explain what digital marketing is as a start. In that case, we can compose the word “digital marketing” for a better understandable phrase. By setting the target and assuming the users literacy, you should be able to see how you can write the content using preferable words and phrases.
Content is easy to read
Article that is not read until the end could conclude it is not a very good content. Users tend to wander around search engines and sites for useful information that they are looking for, so if the details in the article were considered not related, they will exit the page immediately. To solve this problem from happening, the PREP method is the most highly evaluated method for structuring the content.
Point：Conclusion is xxx
Reason (Supporting the point)：Because~ xxx
Example（case studies or actual problems）：For example、xxx
Point（conclusion/summary）：Therefore, it is concluded that xxxx
Here is an example of using the PREP method for structuring.
Keyword topic example:「Digital Marketing」
Point ”Digital marketing has become very important in Thailand, where face-to-face sales are restricted due to the influence of COVID-19.”
Reason ”This is because the number of corporate personnel who collect information online is increasing, and the number of cases where inquiries through the website lead to business negotiations without visiting directly is increasing.”
Example “For example, xxx has been the most issues and problems that many companies in Thailand are facing.“
Point ”Therefore, digital marketing is very important.”
Keyword topic example:「Production Management System (solution)」
Point”In the Thai manufacturing industry, where improving operational efficiency is an urgent issue, digitization such as the introduction of production management systems is progressing.”
Reason”The reason is that by utilizing the production control system, the production process can be visualized and it will lead to the elimination of personalization.“
Example”For example in Thailand recently, xxxx has been the most issues that causing the problem of xxxx”
Point”Therefore, digitization such as the introduction of production management systems is important.”
In this way, if you come to the conclusion of what you want to convey first, and if the content that supports are written, you can create very easy-to-read content that is easy for the user to understand.
This time, I explained three points of how to write content that you should know in order to be displayed at the top of the search results by Google.
- Does it match the user’s search intent?
- Is it structured to make users want to read on?
- Is it made easy to understand?
The key to creating good content is to always remember the “user’s perspective.” This user perspective is an important factor in Google’s evaluation, as Google’s primary goal is to provide useful information to users in search results. If you create content with the user’s perspective in mind, it will be evaluated by Google and will be displayed at the top of the search results.
If the site is displayed at the top of the search results, we believe that it will eventually lead to an increase in the number of site visits and inquiries.
