Look and Feel matters, it attracts the visitors towards your blog but in the end it’s the content that rule over beauty of the Blog. Google gives more value to the unique and well structure content and it’s not easy to update the blog regular content and still maintaining the SEO friendly nature of the Blog. There exists many plug-in for WordPress which assist in writing good content like linking the terms of the text to the earlier posts, inserting SEO optimized images, showing related posts between article content but none for Blogger. But now Blogger users also use this facility with Zemanta. In this article I am going to tell how to use Zemanta to create Quality content both in WordPress and Blogger.
