But over usage of focusing keyword in content can also bring negative marks.So use the focusing keyword in your article within a limit then you can make your articles seo friendly articles.

Understand the Purpose of Article

Understanding the purpose of article is very important in content writing. Know what message the article needs to convene. Content optimization is an art in SEO. Preparing seo friendly articles has its high role in content optimization. Well optimized contents are capable generate tons of visits if it contains values. The article you prepared may be published on an informational website or blog posts or news page, so the sentences need to be easy-to-read. If the article is able to engage more audience in the published pages, the published page will get more trust values.

An article prepared in a authoritative and conversational tone and if it contain actual, useful and factual information, it may generate more responses. Such articles are very useful for blog posting and article posting. While creating seo friendly articles try to avoid repeating ideas and subjects in sentences over and over. A better way to check your article is to read the draft loudly. If you can read 2 -3 times naturally your understand the problems connected to your writing. Some other requirements needed for a SEO friendly articles are:

1) The “keyword” provided should be used as the title AND the topic/theme of the article. Assume that the reader most likely found this article by typing in the “keyword” or a variation of it into the search engine, thus the content of the article should satisfy the readers query and answer the questions (directly or indirectly) that he/she might be thinking.
2) Do not optimize the article for any particular keyword and avoid using the exact title in the body. Write naturally for the readers, not the search engines!
3) The article must have a strong introduction paragraph. This first paragraph should be the most important paragraph in the entire article. First paragraph is the place where all the assertions pertaining to the topic are introduced. It plays an important role in making seo friendly articles. A reader should be able to determine what the article is going to cover just by reading this.
4) Article should have a proper conclusion paragraph that sums everything up.
5) The article needs to have at least 1 bulleted or numbered list.
6) The article must have at least 4 subtitles relevant to the content that follows.
7) The article must be written mostly in first and second person narrative (with an active voice and present tense). The tone/style should be personal/conversational in order to build trust with the readers. I should be able to pick up some of your personality from reading your writing. Be creative with the topic and input some of your own thoughts/ideas – don’t submit generic content that’s already plastered all over the web.
8) Make sure that the article is informative, fun/easy to read, and flows naturally. Avoid lengthy sentences, or multiple sentences, that can be summed up with a single, concise one.
9) Keep paragraphs short (maximum 2-3 sentences per paragraph). Separate your ideas. It’s much easier to read this way.
10) Do not submit to me a re-write of an article that already exists on the web. The article must be unique AND original (include your own thoughts, personality, and ideas, don’t just write like a robot). It will adversely affect in making seo friendly articles. If I recognize the article as a rewrite of an existing article that I’ve read before, I will not accept it and you will receive a bad rating for not following clear instructions.
11) Use at least 3 or more sources when doing your research and *list the sources* used at the bottom.It will help in constructing seo friendly articles.
12) Go through this checklist again and double check to make sure you’ve followed 1-11 correctly. I recommend writing the article as if you are speaking to someone. Because  this style will naturally interest and benefit the targeted readers. Please *double check* your article before submitting to make sure it’s unique and does not contain any grammar mistakes. I will not accept any article that is spun, contains grammar mistakes, lacks quality information, fails to follow *any* of the above guidelines, or is plagiarized/rewritten. If your articles are approved, but problems arise down the line, you will most likely be blocked from seeing any future projects. Failure to follow guidelines will result in wasted time for both of us. I look forward to reading your finished work. Thank You and Good Luck!
