SEO Help ? More Keyword Optimization and content rich sties
I would like to focus a bit more on Keyword Optimization. This is one of the most important factors when creating a new website. Your keyword phrases can tell you how much traffic to expect. A good keyword list can get you the targeted visitors to your site that you want. Then use these keyword phrases in your material on your site and you just became a content rich site that search engines love to see.
When starting off with keyword phrases keep a general idea of what you think the phrases you want to use are. Research these phrases and make sure that the phrase itself gets searched on the three major search engines. That would be google , yahoo, and msn in that order. Keep in mind that google has a 65-70% market share of the searches. You should focus on that search engine first.
When I start a keyword phrase project I use an excel spreadsheet. I use the keyword tools at free wordtracker and google. Google reports the searches monthly, while wordtracker reports the searches daily. You want a phrase to be searched at least 500 times a month. Wordtracker doesn’t get the amount of searches that google gets a month. So the numbers can be very wide in range, but if you keep the records you can see what phrases are popular and which one are not.
The next step is to find a niche. If you don’t you could be competing against millions of other web sites. The next step after you get your 25-30 keyword phrases is to find the amount of websites that are competing for that phrase. When most people search it called a broad match. If you put quotes around your phrase you are going to exact phrase search. This search doesn’t go quite far enough. You need to do an all in title search to find out how many web sites are competing for this phrase. To do an all in title search type in without spaces : allintitle:”your keyword phrase here”. The results that are received will be how many time that phrase appeared in the title of a web page. A good target number on google the results should be under 20,000. Make sure to annotate these results on your spreadsheet also.
Your spread sheet should now have a phrases, google searches a month, free keyword tracker searches, and the all in title results. Its very important to eliminate the phrases that don’t get searched. Eliminate the one with more than 20,000 all in title results. Before you know it you will have a rock solid keyword list that can take your site to the top of the rankings. When you get to the top of the rankings enjoy your targeted free traffic. I will be placing a video on my site showing this seo technique. Keep posting comments and let me know what you guys would like to focus on next.
