Hello folks!

Ok, I have made my contents for my blog for days and days.

I checked it passes copyscape.

But how do I know this content is good for people and google?

I should ask my friends to tell it’s good or not?

How can I make a good content??
And how to check?

Copyscape only checks if there are duplicates on the web. Why would you run into these issue if you write the content yourself?
A good indicator if your content is good: Bounce rate. If people leave your site within a few seconds, they did not bother reading your articles.

Your friends are probably just telling you what you want to hear so ....keep on doing what you do and then adjust based on the data you are gathering.

So I have to publish and see how people act on my content?
And then adjust for my next content?
Ok

Ok

Also depends on what good content is for you. I have ranked with very bad quality content...or so i though. And had problems with "very good" content. Look more at your results than trying to second guess your visitors and/or google.

I'd start by simply looking at all the competitors' content, see which one reads the best and go with that layout. If your competitors suck balls when it comes to good content, it's really a blessing in disguise of a double edge sword kind of situation...

The logic/general gist behind that is probably this: whatever you like the readers like also.

(assuming you've seen all the possibilities - if yours reads much better than any of your competitors, all you have to do now is give it time to outrank them in the long run)



It all depends though...
Assuming you know the purpose of that content, who your target audience is, and how Google algorithm more or less works, etc.

Publish it immediately, install analytics to gauge how well it performs, and move on with your life.

Compare it with your competitor, and also check if it the content is voice search friendly just read it you will know it. Publish it, work on off page. check after few days in GWM if it is ranking.

Make sure content is original, check on copyscape... also go to related forums and ask members to give you their opinion... make sure grammar is proper, content is original and well researched

We first have to define good content. Typically good content has the following features:

  • Native-level grammar.
  • Proper flow.
  • Answers all questions that the reader might have.
If you aren't a native speaker, then you need to hire a proofreader for the first two.

The last one is based on your knowledge of the niche. Try and think of every possible question and answer it in the article.

Adding to that, some more things

1. Easy to read. Try the Flesch-Kincaid readability score or hemingway app to know the level/ease of reading.
2. If you are looking for quick rankings, sprinkle some keywords naturally. Don't force them.
3. Add meta-tags and flowcharts/images to help your readers understand. Especially if you are trying to build authority in a niche.
4. Understand buyer/reader intent and follow that. Some are looking for info, some are looking to buy. Different intent, different content.

every niche is different on what you consider a good content. good content is one that serves user intention. content for "health benefits of apple" vs. "best place to buy apple seeds" are totally different. first one is not looking for make progression in sales funnel, but the second search is. your content needs to match that.

another way, is to look at the top 3 positions for your primary keyword and see how those have done it.

Good points. Flowcharts are especially nice for authority.

On #2, that's not necessary anymore. If you write an informative article, then you shouldn't need to sprinkle keywords. I rank for competitive keywords that aren't even in my articles!

True only if you check the intent. I just added one more point highlighting that.

Analytics.

If it did well, then your audience loved it so keep doing it.
If not, then you have to change your approach on how you do it.

Well, it is so easy. Make sure that your content has enough keywords (Should not do keyword stuffing). And Also write content in the easy word so that anyone can understand the mean of your content.

Write content for humans, not for google bots.

  1. Make sure the article is engaging and interesting to read for its target audience.

  2. Make sure the article flows well and is grammatically correct. Use tools to check readability and grammar. Although no tool is going to replace a human editor. So either improve your own skill or hire one.

  3. Make sure it answers the user intent of the keyword. The length should be sufficient to cover most if not all of the topic of the keyword.

  4. No long blocks of text, make it easy to read.

  5. Use images or videos throughout the article.

  6. For SEO, keep it simple, use a popular plug-in like Yoast ( although I personally use Rank Math) to try and make the boxes green. Don’t need to stress on this though, make it natural, if you overly do it for long tail keywords the article might sound unnatural.

  7. Check analytics every now and then. Again, don't stress this and do it for every article. You can improve a few of your articles here and there over time but stressing over each and every one over bounce rate is a waste of time to me.

You cannot check your quality on Copyscape. Contact the excellent writer, ask them to check the content.
