Still Discovering New Keywords?

discovering-new-keywordsDoes discovering new keywords for your SEO still matter in your blog and writing?

Your keyword discoveries are one of the most crucial pieces to successful search engine optimization (SEO) for your online sites.

Discovering your new keywords and using them throughout your posts and meta tags helps establish the building blocks for most of your blogging efforts. The keywords you choose give power to your sites’ SEO, link building campaigns, press releases, and especially your Social Media strengths.

This is one huge marketing effort on your part.  You need to decide what main keyword terms your site uses consistently.

Discovering new keywords, that will bring your targeted audience (traffic) to your sites, and using these keywords will give more power to your online marketing efforts.

But what about keyword competition?

Discovering new keywords and phrases means you’ll be looking for relevance, popularity and minimal competition. 

– Note: I’ve researched and read that your keywords’ monthly search volume will be ranked better for your information if your keywords used have around 3000 searches per month. This means you won’t be fighting as hard to be on page one of the search engines.

Discovering new keywords for your content strategy and creating compelling content that your readers want is using SEO at its best.

Along with discovering new keywords to use consistently, you already know that if your content isn’t good enough to attract, SEO won’t be as efficient in helping you rank well.

What does it mean if your posts have more search engine power for ranking well?

“Search engines work by keying in on the word patterns people are looking for and returning relevant content.” BRIAN CLARK. Founder of Copyblogger & Scribe

I’ve been asked about keyword density – and to make sure you understand what that is…Here is Wikipedia’s explanation

Keyword density

Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page. In the context of search engine optimization keyword density can be used as a factor in determining whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase.

    Great post! I think us bloggers can definitely pay a little more attention to keywords to make our sites more searchable. I recently created a new blog and really need to start paying attention to keywords.
