Have no fear, fam. This copywriting word-wizard has got you.
Too often, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is painted as the scary unknown and Google, an iron-fisted dictator. We’re here to show you how totally unscary SEO is and how when used effectively, SEO can supercharge your site.
Buckle up! *vroom vroom*.
SEO isn’t just about keywords, flash websites or specially selected tags.
Good SEO is steeped in psychology.
Here’s some quick points to help you understand the psychology of search.
I am a serial plant killer. Honestly, I need only glance in the direction of a succulent for it to shrivel back into the dirt from which it came – they survive the desert, but not my care. Unable to stand the carnage any longer I searched and clicked my way to a blog article promising ten tips for thriving green babies. Just as I was daring to dream of Insta posts featuring billowing ferns, a proposition of contents insurance brought me back to reality. Wait, what? I had been duped. Lured in with the promise of greener pastures only to be hit with the hard sell just when I started to feel comfortable. Thank you, next.
Keyword stuffing is jarringly obvious, weirdly uncomfortable and does nothing to instil brand trust. There is a time, place and piece of content for every keyword. Respect your readers by being transparent and true to your words, and in turn earn the respect of the big G.

Connection is more than a bodacious, new media buzzword. It’s that special something that stops your Instagram scrolling finger dead in its tracks, the ingredient that evokes emotion and transforms a like, to a tag, to a share. But how do we bottle this magic time and time again? Heads up, fam – it isn’t the stuff of myth or legend. Use the formula below as a checklist to transform your content from drab to fab.
In October, Google rolled out the biggest update to its search algorithm in the last 5 years. The update, called Bert (adorable, right?) is focused on understanding long-tail search queries.
Bert is a clever little guy. He’s teaching Google the ways of conversational language. Bert’s passionate about prepositions, adverbs and context. Old concepts of SEO being limited to a heavy peppering of “buy *insert item* online now Brisbane Gold Coast” in content where it doesn’t make sense are on the out. THANK GODDD! Be original, be unique and focus on creating something your audience would want to read.
To satisfy Bert – don’t write content for a robot, write for humans.
