Creating Cornerstone Content

Have you thought about creating cornerstone content that represents your brand?

What is Cornerstone Content?
Cornerstone content pieces are those articles on your website you’re most proud of. They reflect your business, communicate your mission and are extremely well written.

I honestly didn't give it much of a thought until I saw the option in Yoast. But then I thought, why can't all content be cornerstone content? Surely the effort that goes into it wouldn't be significantly different from what goes into regular content.

To give an analogy from the food world, it's like my chef friend says - a chef knows when she's making good or bad food. Making good or bad food is by choice and doesn't take much difference in effort. All it takes is a difference in willingness.

Thumbs down

I was using cornerstone wrong.Cornerstone content always tells about your site. Yoast plugin provides this feature.
Advantage of cornerstone is that it helps you to give priority the pages which describes important information about your site that will catch a reader attention as soon as he/she land on your site. Cornerstone content instruct a reader how to use your site.Boost your site traffic.
Lastly cornerstone content can help to rank your site on search engines.

I've never heard of such term. Unconsciously, my company is of course doing something similar. In the end, it's creation of the brand awareness.

I do not believe that all of your content can be cornerstone content - unless that is that you only have a few pieces. Cornerstone pieces should be the production pieces that you are most proud of.

Cornerstone pieces should be the content that you're looking to push in search as these are the pieces you want to internally link to and pass as much link equity to.
