Thankfully, ContentVerse.com put together 10 simple tips on how to create content that will get ranked and found. The most important of these tips, in my humble opinion, is to write for humans and optimize for robots. Search engines are far too advanced too fool using fancy techinical tricks.

The MOST important thing you can remember is to write engaging and valuable content for your target audience. That’s it. If you don’t invest in this first, then every other activity you do will be a waste and not get you anywhere near the the results you are likely looking for.
So, start with awesome, focused content that your audience will love and share and then worry about all of the smaller, more tactical SEO tips. The reality is that there are never-ending tweaks you can do with SEO, but if you don’t have a quality piece of stone (great content), that you can chisel, then you are just wasting your time.
