Adding content pages – 78 possible topics

Greeting from Vegas again.

Content creation ideas.

I was reading over some forums this morning, and hearing people whine about Matt Cutts saying that buying links (over the radar 😉 and link trading, and 3 way linking isn’t going to pack the punch it once did…and all the ecommerce sites saying, "but hey, I’ve got an ecommerce site…no one will link to me because I’m a store with no content" waa waa.

They’re right. If they don’t have good content, why should anyone link to them?

So what’s the solution? Create good unique content, and add that to your store. Start with free great content, add some "freebies" if you can, give the people link bait.

Once you’ve got that in place, then write (or call) related (but not competitive) sites and strike a deal where they link to you.

Need ideas for content pages?

Write a page for each of the below topics (as many as you can).

So for example, if you were a pool supply company you’d write a page about (just using the first 13 on my list:

  1. Senior Swimming pools or Senior swimming
  2. Retirement resorts with swimmimg pools
  3. indoor swimming pools
  4. outdoor swimming pools
  5. buying a swimming pool
  6. deals on swimming pools
  7. stop someone from drowning in swimming pools
  8. safety tips around swimming pools
  9. home swimming safety
  10. how to do the backstroke
  11. advice on pool cleaning
  12. famous swimmers
  13. history of swimming pools

I realize that not all the topics I listed will work for all sites, but I also know that some of them you could write tons of pages for ("how to" "tips on", etc).  It’s this good content that will slowly over time bring you the natural backlinks that are the best in the world. Hey, you might even get a natural .edu!
