Legal Content Writing ServicesContent Writing Has Some Quirks, But Is It Worth The Cost?

October 10, 2013

Writing for websites is a skill that, if you have a decent grasp of the English language and solid understanding of what you are writing about, seems like it really should not be that hard.

Content for the web has to accomplish two things:

  • Appeal to search engines; and
  • Appeal to the people reading it.

To be a successful content writer you need to have more than solid writing skills.  You must also know what to write about — what are people interested in, and will be most likely to share and link to.  You also need to write at an education level that will mesh with your audience.  Too many attorneys catering to the average Joe and Jane write at a level that is over consumer’s heads.  Google assigns a reading level value to your website (i.e., high school level, college level) and this rating is factored in when Google decides who might be interested in reading your content.

Can You Pass This Test?

Can you choose which of the following examples is more likely to be returned by a search engine in a search for a personal injury law firm in Maryland that specializes in car accident claims?
