Articles are Straight Content
The newest content – adaptive content – is an involved and time-intensive process. It’s an outshoot of straight content. Adaptive content is a natural answer to many companies and their interactive processes with their clients. You might be considering it for the ever-increasing ways in which your clients use the Internet.
However, sites still need articles, aka “straight content.” Magazines of course – glossies, trades, local, and so on – still run articles. Blog posts are usually articles (not counting online diaries). Your own site probably needs straight content, whether or not you’re developing adaptive content.
So, There’s Still a Need for Articles?
Absolutely! Not all companies want, or even need, adaptive content. Not all industries need it. They all, however, need straight content now and then.
Articles range from a quick note of 250 words, and all the way up to a multi-page 5,000 words. Today’s Google prefers longer content; the longer the article, the better your page ranking. While “long” to them is in the realm of 1,000-2,000 words, your article can be fewer words or considerably more. After all, if everyone follows only the recommendation, then no one will be ahead.
And, once you’ve a huge following (Seth Godin comes to mind), the occasional three sentence, pithy idea doesn’t drop your ranking.
