Feeling lost when it comes to knowing exactly how to SEO keyword optimize your content?

Struggling to identify and come up with SEO keywords and topics that hit the bullseye each time — that you know for sure will win with your audience and Google?

Finding it hard to write powerful, engaging blogs and web pages while keeping it correctly SEO optimized?

Did you raise your hand to any (or all) of the above?


You’re exactly who I created this course for! Keep reading  you’re in the right spot.

I’m going to let you in on a little “SEO content secret”…

The core of online content success lies in how engaging and well-written the content is.

Julia McCoy

My name is Julia McCoy, and I’m the founder of Content Hacker™, an author and a content marketing educator.

Before I coached and taught entrepreneurs and marketers full-time at Content Hacker…

I interviewed thousands of writers to train my core team of agency writers at Express Writers, a business I sold in 2021.

Every time I interviewed and trained a new writer, I came across the same handful of SEO and optimization issues.

Many writers weren’t even aware of these, or simply needed some higher-level training and coaching.

And these issues existed whether the writer was a complete newbie, or a pro with years of expertise.

After years of coaching our team of writers on improving their SEO content writing, I decided to create this course for the public.

Here’s the thing… I know, more than anyone, the power of great SEO writing.

My own businesses are entirely marketed through the SEO content I create. We have over 16,000 rankings from our SEO content in Google, which brings in 99.9% of our new clientele.

Today, SEO content is absolutely vital to content marketing success.

90%+ of all traffic on the web originates from a Google search
(Backlinko and Sparktoro)

71% of buyers look at 3-5 pieces of content before engaging with a sales rep (The Economist)
B2B companies with strategic content generate 67% more leads than B2Bs that don’t publish content (Hubspot)
Websites with a blog tend to have 434% more indexed pages in Google (Techclient)

Future-proof SEO Content Training

Have you ever heard of SEO training that is future-proof? This course is.

Inside this SEO writing program, you’re not just learning how to write for Google and search bots, you’re learning how to call on your own creative talents — one of the biggest “future-proof” tactics a writer has.

You’ll be learning new skills, too. This course includes skills that are critical to knowing and earning more as an SEO content creator. You’ll learn comprehensive SEO keyword research tactics that will ensure you know exactly how to find data-backed hot topics that will outperform the competition.

By knowing how to rely on your own creative talents, you protect the future of your content writing career.

While the use of artificial intelligence in the content creation industry is cause for concern for many, the technology isn’t anywhere near the level a creative human being can provide. Knowing how to pull from your own creative instincts and build an audience that craves your content, you can future-proof your SEO content skills.

Plus, with lifetime access to periodic curriculum updates, you’ll be set up for long-term success!

“The Expert SEO Content Writer is a fluff-free, nuts-and-bolts, hit-the-ground-running course.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is no longer a “nice to have” skill. To get the search engine rankings you crave, you need to know the right way to craft your content.

Julia McCoy knows SEO. Once you complete The Expert SEO Content Writer Course, you will too.”

Aqila Shah, Content Strategist, Word Stylist


“Hi Julia,

I’ve just completed your SEO course and got my certification, yayyy!

Just want to thank you for coming up with a short course that’s packed with so much info, facts, statistics & helpful templates (that I could complete in less than 3 days!). Loved the way it was presented – bite-sized (yet so in-depth) and great choice of bright & fun colours too for the video presentations.

Completing this SEO course gives me the push that I need to now complete your Content Strategy Course!! Wish me luck and hope to talk to you again soon🤞”

“Julia presented a thoroughly insightful and inspirational course. It’s improved my SEO writing and that offers a better service to my clients. The down-to-earth approach and supporting worksheets outline the theories you need to understand and the benefits are immediate when applied to your business.”

Ai Addyson-Zhang, Ph.D Professor, Entrepreneur


“Besides being a college professor, I am a content creator. I produce video, visual, and written content across a number of social media platforms on a regular basis. Some of my content performs extremely well, while some barely gets noticed. I love what Mark Schaefer once shared, ‘the economic value of content that is not seen or shared is zero.’

With that, my biggest takeaway from taking Julia McCoy’s The Expert SEO Content Writer course is that she helped me understand the strategies and tactics behind well-performing content.

It is NOT luck that helps content be discovered, rank high on Google, or bring traffic and profit. SEO writing is an art and science; it takes a certain mindset shift to produce strategic content that ranks for SEO and is enjoyable to read. Julia’s course also encouraged me to bring my personality and creativity into my writing. Thank you for being such a great teacher, Julia. I cannot wait to apply what I have learned from you into my work!”

Lisa Farrell, Marketing Director

“This course taught me to think of SEO writing in a different, more methodical way. It helped me refine my strategy and purpose in content marketing. The keyword research section was particularly helpful.

I learned to create ROI-focused content, helpful writing strategies for a variety of content types, and even how to market myself to prospective clients – this course truly covers it all. I highly recommend it to any content marketer, regardless of experience level.”

Jason Schemmel, Social Media Manager at HarperCollins


“Julia’s SEO Writing Course is what every marketer needs. I had a pretty good idea of *what* SEO was, but how to properly utilize it and apply it were a bit fuzzy to me…until I took this course. Julia lays out, in detail, the WHAT, the WHY, and most importantly the HOW to take your SEO game to all new heights!”

Nathaniel Goins, Affiliate Marketer


“I have to tell you that there is a wealth of information in this course and student group.”

How do I know this works? …Strategic, proven SEO content methodology and training = more SEO content success

When I started seven years ago, I was a lousy content writer. But today, I can sit down create an SEO content piece from start to finish, and be positive my content will SUCCEED. Knowing that I’ll end up with a successful piece of SEO content isn’t a guessing game.

Julia McCoy

It happens because I’ve done the work. I know how to research the right keywords, accurately optimize my content with that keyword, and write comprehensively.

I’ve taken the time and care to write correct content around my keyword.

The rankings we achieve from this SEO content don’t happen overnight. But I track them continually, so I KNOW these organic Google rankings add new pathways for leads and sales to come our way, every day.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have the same systems, templates and knowledge I use to create this type of powerhouse SEO content right at YOUR fingertips?

Before I was writing for my clients, I was writing SEO content for my brand. Today, content is still our #1 reason for growth.
I’ve authored more than 1,000 blogs in the past seven years earning over 16,000 organic SEO keyword rankings in Google.

Take a look at this chart. It shows our rankings vs. our top competitors’. If you compare our self-funded site’s rankings against our biggest competitor — who has millions of dollars in funding — you’ll see our site is 4% more visible in Google’s search rankings than theirs:

positions tracking

This incredible ranking power is all due to the power of great SEO content! These rankings, were we to pay for them in Google Adwords instead of ranking organically in Google’s results, would cost us tens of thousands of dollars each month.

more positions tracking

My team and I have been able to replicate this kind of SEO content success for many of our agency clients by using the skills I teach in this class.

These concepts work, and I can’t wait to teach them to you!
