How to identify a need and create relevant content for organic search

creating relevant content

The holy grail of publishing is to get the right content to the right audience at the right time. There are several ways to approach this. A solid social strategy, listening tools, and a close relationship with your audience and your analytics can go a long way in ensuring you know how to create relevant content for your audience.

Organic search traffic, when correctly generated, can help your audience find you when they need you. 

A Solid Strategy

The first key to any solid strategy is to have a good idea of who you want to reach. What do you think your readers will be searching for in an article?

Creating content around topics and keywords relevant to your readers is an excellent first step in improving organic search traffic. People Google search where to go, how to do something, and even the current news. Using tools available to gather even more detailed data can take the guesswork of choosing the right keywords and topics for your content.

Listening Tools

Always be mindful of the news cycle, and it’s essential to be aware of trends. Google Trends is an excellent resource for finding quick updates to keep you in the know. Additionally, exploring what’s relevant on social media is probably the best insight into the minds of your audience. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms are constantly collecting data on their users. Everything about your audience is tracked – age, race, gender, likes, level of education, where they work, relationship status, and more. 

Don’t just guess! Use the available tools and create a process to help you construct content precisely as your audience needs. True Anthem – How is AI used in social media marketing has a ton of insight into social listening to make creating relevant content a breeze. 

Close Relationship with Your Audience

After using listening tools to get you into the minds of your audience, the next key is to build trust and relationships with them and make your content relatable. They will follow what they find to be a true, trustworthy source. All the data you’ve collected will give you insight into people’s likes, dislikes, and everything in between. Now it’s about using that knowledge to engage with your audience and creating a tone of voice that makes you stand out.
