It is the golden rule of copywriting: “if you would engage your audience, first know your audience”. For the SEO copywriter, however, this task is rather more complicated. SEO copywriting must appeal to two very different audiences: one of human visitors, who want well-written, genuinely engaging content; the other of search engines, which match content more or less mechanically against specific words and phrases.
In the dark ages of SEO, copywriting was synonymous with ‘keyword stuffing’ – the practice of packing pages with repeated phrases corresponding to common search terms. In its day, keyword stuffing worked: it fooled search engines into thinking spam pages were relevant and drove visitors from search to sites. But search engines didn’t like the practice, because users didn’t like the results. So search engines got smarter – and SEO copywriters had to get smarter, as well.
