Stratcore can write web content for you from scratch or translate your existing texts.
And if you already have existing texts, you might want us to take a look through them and review the language, while we take care of search engine optimisation. This could be a smart strategy before translating the texts into multilingual web content.

What distinguishes web copy from normal copywriting?
Though there are many similarities, web copy differs from copywriting since not only is it for a specific target audience but also for search engines. Search engine optimised text is text written to enable it to be rapidly understood, classified, and therefore easily found by people using search engines such as Google, Bing, or Baidu. But don’t worry if this sounds a little technical because when done well, text optimised for the web will be equally well optimised for your target audience. And web copy can be pretty enjoyable reading, even for search engines! Simply put, well-written web copy is clearly written text that promptly indicates whether it’s relevant or not to the web user. It’s win-win for everyone.
Good web copy is an investment – bad web copy can be costly in the long run
Good web copy is vital to a company’s success on the web. As we said, it needs to be clear and at the same time capture the audience’s attention. Visitors to your site need to want to read more about your company and your products and services, and if they are what they require, the web copy should be persuasive, attractive and engaging, so much so that your visitor becomes your customer and purchases from you.
The 3-10-30 rule
You have 3 seconds in which to capture the attention of your reader. You have 10 seconds in which to arouse their interest, and you have 30 seconds in which to hold on to them so that they read more about what you have to offer.
A similar principle applies to texts in print. Stratcore also offers copywriting for printed publications. Whether it is about company communication, such as annual reports and press releases, or marketing material, we are the right people to write good copy for you.
Clear communication is vital to achieving success
And Stratcore is good at it – and in many different languages, too! You choose your target market and tell us what the text needs to be about, and our skilled project managers will find the best writer with the specialised knowledge required to write within your area of expertise. Whether you require entirely new content or need to improve existing text, Stratcore’s translators and copywriters can help you with:
- Text written from scratch – new content for your website.
- Editing of existing content – both in terms of language and content.
- Updating existing material – in all languages you require and for all markets.
Relevant content tailored for the web
Stratcore can help you to adapt and write web content that search engines will find. We can write your content from scratch so that it is adapted, and relevant, to your target audience. We can also assist with optimisation of existing content and text.
Good web copy is ranked higher
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is an effective technique that is used in web publishing to increase the visibility of a web page and to generate more traffic. This in turn leads to higher rankings in the results from the search engines and attracts more readers to your content. While it is important to focus on creating relevant and absorbing content for your target group, it can be beneficial if you adapt the content to achieve improved exposure and rankings in the search engines. It is important to stress that there is no conflict between well-formulated content and being optimised for search engines.
SEO – it’s all about relevance
Writing search engine optimised text essentially requires skilled writing to make the content itself interesting and enjoyable. That skill extends to certain techniques that make the text optimally discoverable by users and potential customers. These techniques include:
- Strategic placement of keywords and key phrases in the text – these give context and definition to your message.
- Links to external sources – these will be relevant to the content of your website.
- Inlinks from other websites – these will be from strong websites that relate to your content and bolster its visibility.
Let the rest of the world find, see, read and enjoy what you have to offer! Getting started can be as simple as sharing a link to your content on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram or TikTok or encouraging your industry colleagues and friends to share it.
Basic SEO tips
Do you want to test optimising your web content yourself? Here are some simple, basic tips for you to consider when you need to write texts that search engines, and people, like to read:
- All text needs to be well written and interesting. Include a new angle on a specific topic where possible. Make the introduction exciting so that people’s interest is stirred. They’ll want to find out more, and so continue reading. The text needs to contain information that is important, valuable, useful, or informative to the reader. Quite simply, it needs to engage.
- Well-written text with good web content drives traffic, which means more visitors to your website and more people paying attention to what you are saying and offering. This makes it even more appealing for people to link to your website.
- Create a list of important keywords and key phrases. Keywords and key phrases are important to include in the metadata of your site. Metadata is part of HTML code. The World Wide Web’s essential building block is HTML (hypertext markup language).
- Keywords and key phrases are words, and/or combinations of words, used when people search the internet (‘google’) to find the service, product, or subject they are seeking. For example, a key phrase could be ‘train at home with dumbbells’ or ‘train and lose weight’. In that case, the keywords would be ‘training’ or ‘train’. If you want internet users to find what you’re offering, you’ll need keywords and key phrases.
- Content that is well written is grammatically correct and free of spelling mistakes. Make sure that is the case with the text you’ve created.
- Give each page a heading. Break the content down into shorter paragraphs that have subheadings.
- Use the most important keywords and key phrases as early as possible, preferably in the first sentence and certainly in the first paragraph.
- Do not use the keywords and key phrases too often. They need to be there in a way that creates a good rhythm and good flow in the text.
- Ensure that keywords and key phrases are included in headings and subheadings.
- Last but not least: relevance. Relevance is the most important thing of all. The content you’ve created needs to match the expectations of users who’ve entered the search terms that have brought them to you. Ensure that your website delivers what it promises!
Google and Stratcore both love words
Like Stratcore, search engines love words and text, the more the better. However, text needs to be relevant and well written, and tailored to its purpose and to its target audience. Text-intensive websites, with as many as 2,000 words or more per page, are ranked highly by Google as well as other search engines. But do remember to break down substantial amounts of text into manageable chunks. Make use of headings, subheadings, lists (bulleted, numbered or styled to your content) – and why not give tables a try? Tables can be very useful for presenting information. As we mentioned earlier, good web copy is plain, concise, and clearly structured.
Though it’s best from the outset to use the techniques we’ve described when you’re producing new content for publishing, the beauty of it, the beauty of the web, is that you can always go back and make changes later to improve the ranking of your content. That’s worth remembering.
