What To Do With Keywords?

This is the killer question. If you have a keyword (or, more likely, a list of keywords) then you need to know what’s next. There are a few tips that can help you here –

  1. One keyword per web page – don’t try to cover all bases in one go
  2. Use a keyword in the header, in the text a few times and in a lower heading too
  3. Create content around the keyword that explains what you do
  4. Make sure it is clear what you are and what you do
  5. Understand that getting the keywords right is only half the battle – you also need people to tread and want t buy from you when they land on your page

With all of this in mind, start making some notes on what your most effective keywords are. Then get on Google and see if you rank on the first page for them. Also take a look at what your competitors are doing. The more information you have, the better your chances of success.
