Acquiring A Target!
Today, I’ll be showing you how to use keywords in your website. Properly I might add. We all know that proper keyword choice along with correct usage within your content will bring the much sought after traffic to your website. Which always brings a smile to website owners faces.
The Number #1 Rule in…
The number #1 rule in proper keyword placement is not to overload them all over your webpage. Trying to pack keywords in every available spot you can. This used to be the old way of SEO back in the day, but now with Google frowning upon this strategy.
So, you ask, “How many times should I use my keyword(s) in a post?” Well, Grasshopper you shouldn’t have used it more than 3 times, like a pyramid. Wait…whaaaattttt? Yep, 3 and only 3.
In my mock page demonstration below, check out my randomly thought up keyword. Gordon Liu. Well, maybe it wasn’t random!? My strange agendas. I mocked up a page to demonstrate how to correctly use a keyword. I only used the keyword (Gordon Liu) three times.
Notice the Page Title (Gordon Liu). Then highlighted in red two more times. One in the first sentence or paragraph then once again in the last paragraph. So easy. I know right?
- Page Title
- First Paragraph
- Last Paragraph
When writing your pages content, you should just write naturally,
DO NOT PACK THE KEYWORD INTO YOUR CONTENT!!!!
Write naturally, and it will just work better, focus on your audience and make it easy for them to read and for the information to help them. Put yourself in their shoes and then write to help them. It’s a skill and can be honed. Not that I am great or anything, but I had a hard time in High School writing any, even one sentence. Not kidding. You can get a lot better with practice. Focus on having GREAT CONTENT!
If you happen to write naturally and the keyword comes out organically, go with it. But by no means revert to keyword stuffing.
Proper Keyword Choice
How do you choose the correct keyword? Well the method I use, it’s honestly, kind of fun and very rewarding. Did I forget to mention it’s super easy too? Yeppers. A side note here, whenever you find something that’s easy and fun and beneficial, grab that sucker by two hands and don’t let go. This is the case with the keyword finder I use. I lean on this, to help me continuously.
Well, what is the keyword finder? A Keyword finder is a program that helps you find low competition keywords, which helps bring traffic to your site. Ideally, you want to choose words that receive a lot of traffic but has low competition, thereby guaranteeing you the ever sought after traffic to your website. The program I use is Jaaxy.
