Achieve the right Content Depth

This guide explores the art of crafting comprehensive and engaging content that resonates with readers.

In today's fast-paced digital age, creating content that truly resonates with your audience can be challenging. In this article, we'll explore some of the key strategies and techniques you can use to create truly deep and impactful content.

What is Content Depth?

Content depth is about creating content beyond the surface level, providing real value to your readers, and helping them solve problems or achieve their goals. 

It's about taking the time to research your topic thoroughly, gathering data and insights, and presenting your findings in an easy-to-understand and actionable way. Achieving content depth requires creativity, critical thinking, and strategic planning. 

From conducting in-depth research to leveraging multimedia formats, we'll cover everything you need to know to take your content to the next level. So, let's dive in!

Why is it Important to Achieve the Right Content Depth?

Content depth is essential for SEO because search engines like Google prefer to rank content that provides comprehensive and in-depth information. In short, the more comprehensive and detailed the content, the better it is for SEO.

It helps establish credibility and authority in a particular field or industry, differentiate content from competitors, and increase engagement, shares, and conversions. You can also build a loyal audience over time by providing content that adds value. 

How do you Achieve the Right Content Depth?

After completing your article's first draft, you should check the SEO Score of your content in the editor. You can do this by going to the 'Optimize Section' on the right-hand side, where you will find the average and top scores for the article and the suggested SEO score. Aiming for a score as close to the top as possible is important, or at least to match the suggested SEO score

There are 9 parameters that govern the SEO Score of an article. In this blog, we are going to discuss the ‘Content Depth’ and how you can achieve it in your work.

Sticking to the suggested word count and any outline-related instruction our editor displays helps improve your SEO Score.

For example -

  • Current total word count is 2846. Suggested is 2300 - 2500
  • Current word count of all headings is 137. Suggested is 48 - 58
  • Current word count of all paragraphs is 2709. Suggested is 1800 - 2000
  • Current bold word count is 47. Suggested is 57 - 69
  • Current number of images is 23. Suggested is 14 - 17
  • Alt text is present in 23 out of 23 images
  • Current number of headings is 33. Suggested is 17 - 21

Had there been a major issue, the ‘Fix It’ module would have assisted you in working on your content depth. In this case, there are no major errors. Hence, one cannot see the ‘Fix It’ module here.

Your SEO Score increases with the increase in green ticks against each parameter.

Note -

Symbols are useful for communicating the level of attention required for instruction or task.

Red cross = Major issue needing immediate attention

Orange tick = Minor issue or opportunity for improvement

Green double tick = Perfection.
