Congratulations to Praises of a Wife an Mommy on winning the last SEO giveaway!
With all this information about how you can analyze your site’s traffic, optimize the code and decide where you have to place your keywords for maximum SEO weight. You’ll also need to know what keywords to put. You can know all about SEO code, but without the proper writing of your marketing strategy, it’ll be all for not.
How many keywords should I use? What density should I aim for? How many characters for each tag type? What are the best keywords to get people on my site?
These questions have plagued the minds of marketers before the first ad campaign was ever run. Attracting people is more of an art than a science. You can plaster “Free stuff” everywhere, and write it in all your adds, but this won’t attract anyone. In fact, chances are if you’re using your keywords too often, people will find you hard to read, get bored and move on. On top of all that, search engines will penalize you for bad choices, and you’ll just end up at the bottom of the list (if on the list at all)
Analytics becomes crucial at this step, and as data becomes more and more available, you’ll need to look through to find out what keywords you’re being found with. Some of these keywords may not be what you’re looking to market, which in turn, becomes a worthless lead.
Once you know how you’re being found, you’ll also need to know what keywords are strongest on your site. Knowing where the stronger keywords are will help you make sure that you aren’t overpowering them with other, non-relevant text that knocks your keywords down the totem pole. These keywords will need to be classified as broad or long tailed keywords. For example, “SEO” alone would be a broad keyword, and because it’s so frequently used, it’s highly difficult to compete with people already established in this market.
Long tailed keywords would be more like “SEO analysis in Ottawa”. It’s much more specific, and thus, less competitive. You’ll want to capitalize on those long tailed keywords and market accordingly.
It’s a fine line in how specific or how broad you’d like to be when it comes to marketing your site, and the best thing you can ever do is choose to think like the customer. What do they search for? You need to be as specific as possible without removing the possibilities of being found.
