Create Quality Content
Google is looking to help their clients (people who use the Google search engine) solve problems. When someone asks Google a questions, Google wants to provide them with the best possible content to find them a solution as quickly as possible.
So what does this mean?
This means that if you focus on creating quality content that actually finds solutions to peoples problems, Google is really going to like that because you are helping them fulfill their desire to help their users.
So how do you do that?
The first think you want to do is find out what people are searching for on google. If you have a smart software like Semrush or Ahrefs, use that to find the most popular search terms related to your business. If you do not have a membership with those sites then go to the Google homepage and type in a topic related to your business.
Google will then show you popular search terms that people are looking for. Pick one and now you are ready to write about this quality topic!
