After all, healthy teams that communicate openly and honestly mean happier and higher-performing employees and clients. It’s no wonder organizations like Inc. Magazine, Ad Age and Washington Post have recognized Silverback as a top place to work.

Next, we research your ideal buyers while auditing your current content and technical setup. This gives us the ingredients to create a tailored SEO content strategy specific to your business.

Launch Your Campaign

From there, quarterly editorial calendars and content production combine to put your editorial SEO content strategy into action.

Evolve + Optimize

Throughout each step, we track performance, provide clear, transparent, and jargon-free reporting, and optimize accordingly.

What’s Included in Editorial SEO Services?

Editorial SEO combines technical SEO, on-page SEO, and SEO content services and strategy to market your business effectively and drive results faster. Silverback’s SEO content writing services go beyond adding a few keywords here and there. Instead, we’ll build a strategic and tactical roadmap that makes SEO success the basis of topic selection, linking opportunities, and how we spend our resources.

Website + Content Audits

Uncover opportunities, gaps, and strengths by analyzing the technical aspects of your site and the editorial potential of your content, as it stands on its own and how it compares to other businesses and SERP competitors in your industry.

Keyword Development

Utilize sophisticated keyword research as part of our overall strategy and as the foundation of our SEO content writing services. Research encompasses search volume, relative competitiveness, ranking difficulty, and more to create an effective SEO content strategy.

Content Creation + Promotion

Map your content in a quarterly calendar, review fresh content assets, and optimize on-page SEO on a regular basis. Silverback’s SEO content writing services bring new traffic, interest, and potential customers to your site organically.

Link Building

Internal and external linking play a considerable role in how algorithms rank your site. As part of our SEO content services, you receive a comprehensive strategy for internal linking, external linking, and anchoring.

Ongoing SEO Maintenance

Keep your site running as it should with ongoing SEO technical maintenance. Optimize links and new pages, receive monthly updated XML sitemaps, and review monthly reporting of overall keyword rankings, traffic trends, linking profiles, and more.

Types of Editorial SEO Content

Search algorithms are evolving. In 2019, Google announced their ability to index the spoken word, paving the way for marketers to optimize audio and video content. Think outside the blog and reach new organic search traffic with different types of editorial SEO content.

Blog Content

Probably the most common content format, blog posts are easy to produce and can attract users with a wide range of search intent.

Video Content

Optimize recorded video content for search on platforms like YouTube and Vimeo.

White Papers

If your content is valuable enough, you can create a PDF asset offered in exchange for an email address, generating mid-funnel leads.

Quizzes + Tools

Boost user engagement—an increasingly important ranking factor—by developing quizzes or other tools on your site.

Social Media Content

Users today would rather consume content in their social feeds than click through to your site. Repurpose your blog content into posts designed to be consumed in the feed.

Podcast Content

Optimize your podcast episodes for search on platforms like Google, Spotify and Apple.
