About the Author’s SEO Writing Experience
My name is Yuwanda Black, and I’m the founder of New Media Words (NewMediaWords.biz), an SEO writing firm.
I publish a blog about SEO writing; developed and teach an SEO Copywriting Training course (see SeoWritingJobs.com for details about both), and have written two best-selling ebooks on the subject, eg, How to Write SEO Copy That Sells; and How to Make $250+/Day — Or More — Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles.
ABOUT SEO WRITING
While it had been around for more than a decade when I first wrote this ebook (Summer 2011), businesses have just started investing heavily in it within the last three to five years. It’s a lucrative niche in freelance writing. I found it so lucrative that I changed the whole focus of my freelance writing career in 2007 — offering this kind of content almost exclusively.
Why SEO Content Writing Is So Much Fun
I’ve written on everything from wedding cake toppers to oil drilling equipment. This is what makes this type of writing so fun. You never get bored because you’re constantly writing about something new.
Why SEO Writing Is Evergreen & Lucrative
The ebook, How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles, details how to do just this. It’s the blueprint I used to launch my SEO writing career, and one many others have used effectively as well. You can read tons of testimonials on that page.

Why SEO Writing Is Not Hard – Really!
SEO copy is not difficult to understand or create, but many are confused by some of the technicalities around it. Once they see a completely laid out article, they’re usually like, “Oh, that’s it.”
