Tips

1) Choose the right keywords. Even the most lasting evergreen piece isn’t worth much if people aren’t searching for that topic, so do your keyword research. Use  Google Keyword Planner Tool

 


2) Optimize for SEO. Add alt text to images, and put the keyword in the title, URL and throughout the body copy. You should also hyperlink related evergreen articles together to improve SEO rankings.

3) Write for Beginners: You may feel the need to share your expertise, but do so in a way that caters to beginners. Experts aren’t likely to be searching on broad topics, and you want to generate evergreen content for a large and recurring audience.

4) Re-use your content through lists and compilations (Best articles of the month, TOP articles of the year, Readers’ choice etc.).

5) Highlight your evergreen content with banners. Get all links on one place and render it as a tutorial or a manual for all new students. Build a social media campaign around your content, across all of your networks.

6) Add evergreen content on a regular basis. Create  a list of topics and write articles according to this plan.
