    Keyword In First 100 Words
    This is the most standard best practice you should be using in your content marketing efforts. The keyword you’re trying to rank for in search engines? Make sure it’s in the very first 100 words of the post you’re about to publish. It may not be as helpful for crawlers as it was in the past, but it certainly can’t hurt and it can help make the connection between the content and title for your readers a lot more seamless.

    Optimize Search Position
    The vast majority of SEO traffic comes from links in the top 3 positions in any given search results page. If you can crack the top 3 by optimizing anything in position 4-5, you'll see a big boost in traffic. This works regardless of whether you’re on page 1 or page 3, so even if you can’t crack the top 10 for a search, put in a bit of effort to make sure you’re top of the specific page you’re ranking on.

    Local Bias Ad Copy
    Make your ad locally relevant by speaking the language of the people you are trying to engage. Where do they consider home? Do they use region specific language? People are proud of their roots or nationality. Incorporate local lingo or well-known destinations into your copy to increase your chances of making a genuine connection.Example:“Razors made in America”“Yinz will love this new home entertainment center.”“A deal as magnificent as the Golden Gate.”

    Twitter No Image Ad
    No image can increase CTR because there are less distractions and it feels less spammy/has more authority. Although a tweet with a photo may be more eye catching, it may take away from the call to action and the link out to the landing page you are promoting.

    Bucket Brigades
    One of the most important aspects of SEO is time on page. The longer people spend on your pages, the more SEO weight those pages will hold. A great way to increase read time in your content is bucket brigades. These are small, short buckets of text (1-2 lines) that make your content easier to read and more scrollable.

    Free Content Ad Copy
    People love freebies, especially if they are highly-relevant. Create free, branded content that is easy to access and valuable to potential customers. And then, highlight the offer in your copy - linking the potential customer directly to a landing page with the content… not your homepage. This is an effective tactic to capture email addresses. And further down the line, if they are faced with a problem you can solve, they will be more inclined to contact you rather than the competition. Example:“Check out our eBook on the best uses if AI.”“A must see guide to SEO.”“Enjoy our free marketing plan template and crush your marketing goals.”

(Note: consider the shared experiences of your target audience.)Examples:“A razor your grandpa would have been proud of”“A video game that will transport you back to the 90s.”“Jewelry that will make you feel like you are back in high school.”

    Testimonials Ad Copy
    Testimonials are inherently strong drivers of engagement because they come from individuals outside of your company, and therefore, have greater validity. Reach out to current, or past clients and satisfied users of your product asking them for a quote you can use publicly. Most will be happy to make a public statement of praise. Examples:“This product made marketing 10X easier.” - Tim, Tech Venture CEO“I don’t know what I would do without this.” - Kimberley, Data Scientist“These guys are worth every penny.” - Steve, Entrepreneur

    Keyword Only URLs
    Another SEO best practice for all blogs, instead of having random strings or the blog post title as your URL, use the keyword you’re trying to rank the blog post for as your URL slug. This both helps you have a clean URL that’s easy to understand for your readers, and whenever the link is copy-pasted, it acts as anchor text, which is great for retaining the SEO benefit of your link.Example:Instead of https://blog.ladder.io/144-actionable-growth-strategies-for-your-business/We use https://blog.ladder.io/growth-strategies/

    Skyscraper Technique
    Skyscraper is a classic technique that can help you create content that ranks higher than your competitors. Here’s how it works: You read a ton of great blog posts every day. Find one that’s link-worthy, write your own unique version and make it better, and then do outreach for backlinks. Think of it as a skyscraper size race - make your own content a dozen stories higher than the competing product.

    Outbound Linking
    Link out to relevant sites to prevent users who come to your site through search from returning to Google. Google considers a search more successful if after clicking on a search result, the user does not return to the search results page to select another link or create a new query. This is known as time to long click. Link out to valuable information sources so users leave your site on your terms rather than through Google, meaning an increase in long clicks and an increase in your search ranking.
