As a pro tip, tailor your content according to your audience. 

Guest Posts

Google’s indirect but important ranking factor, E-E-A-T (Experience-Expertise- Authoritativeness-Trustworthiness) is important to take note of. Guest posts can increase your website visibility. 

Just like interview blogs, they also offer similar benefits in reaching a broader audience. They also help when you do not have enough subject matter experts in your content team. 

Glossaries 

Glossaries are of great help to your new and growing audience. They determine your authority over a subject. 

You can help your readers find out about technical terminologies they may have never come across. Headlines such as A-Z glossary terms of [industry/skill] work.

Parting Thoughts
