Defining Context

For SEO Beginners, understanding the context of your SEO content is paramount to achieving good results from your Search Engine Optimization strategy.  The technical definition of context is the circumstances and facts that surround a situation. When it comes to content, context is the way you’re publishing, distributing, and promoting your content.</h4

If you’re trying to connect in the wrong context, it doesn’t matter how good or bad your content is. It’s not going to be read, shared, or discussed. The circumstances that surround your marketing strategy are that your future clients are smart, and they’re using NetFlix to avoid television commercials.

Even the world’s best content is not an island, and the real key to quality, relevance, and profit is making sure you control your future. (Source:  Inbound Marketing Blog)

Talk about your content In the right context and forum.

Would you talk about the best oil for your car at a dry cleaning site? How about making a great pizza on a healthcare platform?  Great content matters, but the context of your content is just as important.  Context will help the reader understand the meaning of your content.  Are you writing about a “book you have read” or telling the visitor to “read a book”.

SEO Beginner, now that you understand your context, before you write your content.
