Do Spelling & Grammar Matter For SEO?

When creating a website many people creating website content are not writers. Therefore, some people worry that spelling and grammar will matter for SEO. Of course, it is safe to assume that content that is completely unreadable is bad for SEO, and that is true. However, do you need a skilled SEO writer? Do spelling and grammar matter for SEO?

Spelling and grammar errors are inevitable. Even skilled writers will make them occasionally, but proofreading and spellcheck can help cut down on them. A few small errors throughout your website are unlikely to make a major difference in your SEO. However, if keywords are misspelled, and misspelled frequently, this can affect your SEO and rankings.

As mentioned earlier, if the grammar and spelling affect or influence the potential connotations of the content, then even the search engine crawlers may have a hard time understanding your content and not place it within the right rankings or space. For the most part, this is unlikely to happen as long as the content is well written.

Using various spell checkers and proofreading your content before posting are ways to avoid rampant spelling and grammar mistakes that could impact SEO. Overall, a few small mistakes will not impact SEO negatively. To learn more and schedule a free marketing consultation, call us at 206-787-0784 or reach out online via chat or contact form.
