Article writer for SEO and print

You need well-written online or print articles? Great! I'm an experienced copywriter based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. I craft engaging articles when you or your client don't have the time, specialist skills or inclination to write them yourselves. I get writing off to-do lists and out in the market where it can work for you. Forget cheap copymill articles or $5-an-article rubbish here.

SEO articles for humans and search engines

It’s not always easy to find time to do your own article writing is it? If there always seems to be something else ahead of it on your to-do list, maybe now’s the time to hire professional article writing services from this Gloucestershire copywriter. Even if you can write your own articles, there's a strong argument for hiring my services – including freeing your time to concentrate on other important business tasks.

article writer: selection of work

Although less influential than they once were, well-written online articles are still an effective way to generate inbound links to your homepage and deeper site pages. And with Google's ongoing algorithm changes, articles added to your website increase your appeal as a source of relevant information for human visitors and search engines alike. Can you afford not to use my article writing skills as part of your content marketing stratagy?

Working direct or with SEO consultants

Working with SEO consultants, direct for end-users and for my own site, here are just some of the areas I’ve tackled as an article writer:

  • Watches
  • Travel articles
  • Translation services
  • Book-keeping services
  • UK tourism (including airport hotels and holiday cottages)
  • Helicopter aviation
  • Pumps
  • Lawn mowers
  • Superyachts
  • Conference services

A skilled online article writer can create a suite of SEO articles in a day. It’s a cost-effective way to generate valuable inbound links that search engines love. That's why SEO and SEM specialists such as Great Position!, Serendipity Online Marketing and Mowbray SEO entrust their writing to me.

Online article writer

Obviously, because yours is a quality-minded UK business, you will resist the temptation of very cheap SEO articles from so-called ‘copy mills’. If you pay a penny-a-word for a 500-word article (often written offshore by someone without English as their first language), don’t expect the quality of writing your brand deserves. And don’t be swayed by the argument that it’s ‘only an SEO article’. Your name will still be on it; articles written by an experienced UK-based expert needn’t cost the earth and you’ll know your online image is in safe hands. I wonder when you'll contact me for a chat about your article writing requirements?

Better online presence with website article writing

Clearly, content remains king online and regular additions of relevant articles are a good way to enhance your website:

  • New content brings search engines back more frequently.
  • Website articles are an easy way to add useful content and build site relevance.
  • Interesting, useful articles draw human site visitors.
  • Well-written website articles can be optimised easily for long-tail keywords.

Newsletter and magazine articles

Before going freelance, I wrote extensively in various capacities including that of a PR agency writer; my industry experience included fields as diverse as packaging, aerospace, building and the uPVC window industry. Since going freelance, I’ve applied these skills to search engine optimisation link building, newsletter content writing and articles for submission in trade mouthpieces such as the telecoms industry’s Comms Business magazine.

Technical articles

As Toyota GB (client: Mosaique Design) discovered with a suite of successful marketing datasheet articles, my grasp of technical subjects and ability to make technology an engaging read is a useful skill to have in your team. The Toyota articles covered topics such as air filters, braking components and catalytic converters. Other clients have used my technical copywriting skills too – for SEO articles and more...
