Powerful Words for Link Building

“Power words” are smart words that copywriters and content creators use to trigger an emotional response from consumers. These words give your written content the highest conversion rates. For example, the word “good” is frankly boring and overused (Plus, it’s biased — what’s good to you may be bad to someone else). Instead, words like “delicious” or “practical” help you tell a more meaningful, more accurate story. Learning to leverage power words is a must for link building content and other facets of eCommerce optimization.

When creating content for link building, you need to continually hone your tactics to squeeze the most juice from them. In many cases, the words used in your content have a tremendous impact on your conversion rate; this ultimately improves your search ranking. So, here’s a helpful infographic from Moosend. Use it to help you leverage powerful words for the most significant impact in your digital marketing.

With the use of power words, your brand content becomes irresistible, and people can’t help but do what you ask of them — whether it be to make a purchase or check out your new blog post. You won’t go from zero to 100% conversions overnight, but you will notice a profitable shift as you integrate powerful, persuasive language into your work.
