  • Turning Article Pages into Homepages


    As more users access content sites directly via article pages, coming from social media or search engines, these pages have to change. First, they should maximize the traffic potential from search engines and social media. Second, they should work as “mini-homepages”, leveraging the first encounter with the user. 

    Main aspects covered: Journalistic SEO – information architecture, headlines, best practices; Journalistic SMO – creating a “two way bridge” between content websites and social media; Using content as a marketing agent; Turning landing pages into homepages; What's next - answering the most important question of the user.



    After this workshop participants will be able to:

    • Describe different ways users approach content sites today. 
    • Plan article pages that leverage their potential as landing pages. 
    • Describe different options and best practices in offering next steps for users. 
    • Plan article pages that maximize the SEO potential.
    • Write content that maximizes the SEO potential. 
    • Plan article pages that fulfill their social media potential.
    • Describe best practices in turning articles into “marketing agents” on social media.
