Post explained that keywords have changed in purpose. They are now used to guide the intent of the content rather than meeting a level of density. User-generated content has become more important to businesses through product reviews, forums, chats, and even emails developing more prominence.
Post commented that contests are another way to enhance content marketing. They allow businesses to stand out from their competition and get people involved. Post provided guidance on how to create a successful contest; detailing everything from setting goals to announcing the winner. As the Internet and search continues to change, it is essential that businesses keep on top of those changes to stay ahead of the game.
