#2 Plan for SEO
Search engine optimization need not be a dirty word for brand campaigns, it can conjure up images of low quality content. But it doesn’t have to.
This post is just to keep SEO in mind, as you build out the content. Think about the headline, will it draw searchers in, are you using the right terms. If you arrive from search what would you want to do? What would you want to do next?
These values or ethos from SEO are actually quite valuable in improving not only your content. But if you do get ranking, your distribution.
Google always ranks as a high quality distribution source in Nudge quality benchmarks.
You might be asking, will I rank? It’s paid content. We still see paid content ranking, as from Googles perspective, if it’s the best content for that search term they will show it.

- SEO Content Checklist worth printing out and reviewing for your campaigns.
