Evergreen content is content that is always relevant in your industry and will remain interesting to your customers. Much like the way
evergreen trees retain their leaves all year round, evergreen content never becomes dated. This type of content is powerful because search
engines will continue to crawl it and rank your website in their search
engine results pages
for related search terms.
Evergreen content does not require a large a wordcount. It is often in the form of a website, blog post, or infographic. As long as the
topic is timeless and unique to your business, it is considered evergreen. Contact us to see if evergreen content can help your business.

business that get picked up by Google and other search engines in order to get listed in search queries and stay relevant.
2. Be an Expert
Your content should show expertise, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness (EAT). The importance of this cannot be overstated. Evergreen
content can provide your website with a look of authority. As viewers continue to spend time on your content pages, it shows search engine
that your business is an expert and your content is trusted.
3. Be Flexible
Evergreen content does not have to be carved in stone or lengthy. In fact, it can be modified according to what it is being used for. It can
also be redone to fit other media platforms, as long as it does not lose the gist of the message. In fact, it is also possible to take out
only portions of it, called snippets, and used on social media.
