How To Select Keywords When Creating Your Content by Deniafe: 3:38pm On Apr 29
Keywords are super important to any blogger that wants to become an authority in their niche, or any blogger at all that wants to generate revenue via blogging, and how to select keywords is a skill every webmaster should posses. Choosing the right keyword is one of the SEO strategies used to boost rankings on Google SERP’s, and ultimately driving traffic to your site. It is therefore consequential that you to know how to select keywords when creating your content, so you aren’t just shooting without aiming at anything really.

What is a Keyword?
A keyword is an idea or topic that tells what a content is about. In SEO terms, Keywords are the phrases/words that searchers enter into a search engine search box. Different people all over the world are searching for different things, and the words they type into the search box is what is called a keyword. For example, Someone could search for “dinner gown styles” “Lions” or “Baby toys” those are keywords.

Singular Keywords vs Long-Tail Keywords
Singular keywords are one word/phrase keywords. Just like searching for cars, or dogs, or clothes. While singular keywords usually have high search volumes, they come with extremely tough competition, and can be very vague in terms of description. So someone could search for babies, and what they might be looking for could be baby toys, or baby food, or baby clothes.

On the other hand, Long-Tail keywords are clearly defined and have less competition, and a size-able amount of targeted traffic. For example, “best healthy baby food”. That is a long-tail keyword that has less competition than just “baby food”, good traffic, and targeted visitors.

SEO is like rocket science to bloggers and web owners. The more they read, the more they get confused. That's why most big brands have a yearly budget that includes SEO, they can't afford to keep up with the changing terrain

I'd advise new or existing bloggers to give out SEO jobs to experts, especially the technical SEO and they probably can be experimenting with the OffPage SEO.

Blogging is for the patient ones. Just be consistent with time it will start ranking on search engines naturally.
It took my site www.chemistrykeys.com 4 months to start appearing on the first page of search engines which means more traffic .
But if yours is a business site then you can go for an SEO expert.

Nice piece. I'm always enthralled by whatever grants people financial security through legitimate means.

It's quite instructive that this post seeks to inspire readers to go into blogging and also motivates active bloggers to further improve their capacity by identifying ways to strategize better in titling their blog posts.

As my own little contribution to further encourage self-development with minimum capital requirement, I encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to get trained in the online trending skills of the moment using a smart phone.

Ask me how on zero.eight.zero.three.five.six.zero.three.one.one.eight

I use my BB Z10 phone to create and design blogspot blogs. I also use it to market online! With my phone, I take my online biz anywhere I go! E.g www. Walmards .blogspot .com Remove the space in-between.
