Content is a huge component of a successful SEO campaign. SEO content is made up of many different parts, the most common of which is written content. The words you write on your website are meticulously evaluated by search engines to determine what topics your website should rank for.

Content can also be made up of video content, being that YouTube is the 4th largest search engine, beating out the likes of Bing and Yahoo, video content is incredibly important to your content strategy. A successful video campaign doesn’t only provide you with an opportunity to bring in traffic from YouTube, search engines are more likely to show a webpage that has embedded video content.

Another form of popular content for an SEO strategy is audio. A podcast is a great way to create audio for your website, especially if your business is about something that may be of interest to anyone 12 to 55 years of age as almost 50% of that age range listens to podcasts!

Content is also considered the images you use on your website. Properly optimized images will help improve your overall ranking while also providing the potential opportunity to show up in Google Image Search results.
