How Keywords Influence Website SEO

Keywords are a crucial part of optimizing your website’s SEO. Search engine optimization is an important marketing strategy that will improve your visibility and generate more traffic to your site. However, without the right keywords, you could be missing out on potential customers who have been searching for something like what you offer but don’t know about your company yet. 

What is a keyword? 

A keyword is a word or phrase that describes what your website offers. It can be found in the content on your page and includes words you use as headers (hints about the topic of each section) and subheaders (more specific hints about things within sections), tags for images, titles to videos, and captions for photos etc. Anything with text could have keywords tied to it!  

Keywords are essential because they target potential customers searching for something like what you offer but don’t know about your company yet. A good keyword will help ensure people find your site when they search online using those terms — which means more visibility and traffic. 

How to use keywords effectively? 

A good keyword will increase the chances of someone finding your site when searching for those terms on a search engine like Google, Bing or Yahoo. 

Here are a few tips on using keywords effectively:  

  • Use targeted and descriptive titles with relevant keywords throughout the post. 
  • Include brief introductions before significant sections as well as sentences summarizing each section at the end. 
  • Ensure headings (hints about which content is within) use different “sentence” styles than body text so readers can quickly identify them without scanning. 
  • Use keywords as links to other posts on your site.  

Here are some further tips: use synonyms; avoid repeating the same word too often in a single post or even within one paragraph; and include definitions for unfamiliar words if they’re not familiar enough to be included in a standard dictionary, such as “bemused” meaning amused with sometimes mocking humour, from Latin ‘better’ (amuse). 

Extra Tip: Keep track of which topics you mention so readers can find related content by using tags like keywords at the end of each sentence or paragraph. This will help them navigate through any subject matter quickly without having to search manually. Remember that consistency is key! Don’t neglect research about what’s trending, and I’ve found that reading the comments and feedback from readers is a great way to know what they want. 

How many keywords should be included in a post? 

As long as you are writing about something relevant to your topic and not overly keyword-stuffing, there isn’t a set number. However, the more keywords you have in your post, the higher the page rank for each word or phrase on Google SERPS (search engine results pages). If you’re starting out with blogging, don’t worry too much, though, because even small blogs can still rank well if they focus on quality content over quantity of posts. One quality keyword is worth more than 10 poor keywords. Focus on trending keywords for that particular content you are promoting.  

There are two ways to rank high in Google SERPS. The first is by having many pages with keywords on them with good word counts, and the second way, which is better for small blogs or bloggers just starting out, is to focus more on quality content than quantity. One quality keyword will always be worth more than ten poor ones, so make sure you’re targeting trending topics as well when choosing what niche market to blog about.
