How do I get my website to the top of the search? It’s all about putting keywords in website content

Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Mysearch – These search engines are just a few of the engines that can search for any tiny shred of information that you need but you need to have the right keywords in website content to make sure that when the engine searches, your websites appears on the first page at least. When it comes to the writing of content you can hire a professional writer, or you can write your content by yourself. It may seem like a daunting prospect at first, but it isn’t that difficult. It is not like the kind of formal essay writing that you remember from school. You can write creatively, and the only restriction you have is that you will need to work your keywords into the content.

If you are new to the world of internet content writing you might not understand the importance of working keywords into the content of your website. Well, it is of paramount importance. Keyword optimisation makes sure that if your keywords appear often enough in your text, the search engines will pick it up.

It is important to put keywords into the content of your websites that people will most probably use when searching for your product

Once you have written your content, there are many different resources to check how many times you have put your keywords into your content, just Google ‘keyword research tools and analysers” for example. You will then get a clear picture of how many times your keywords appear in your text and headings. Using these research tools is fairly simple, and they pretty much all work the same. You upload your text, and you will be given information on your keyword optimization. Often there are other tools that come alongside these analysers such as how much of your text has been plagiarized and grammar checks. All of this information is important as it gives you a good idea of how search engine optimised your content is.

Sometimes it may seem difficult to put keywords in website content

Ideally you should have your keywords appear between 3 – 10 times in a 500-word article. Opinions differ on how many times you can use a keyword, but I feel that anything over 10 times in a 500-word article is too many times. Others say that using a keyword 30 times in a 500-word article is the maximum. Integrating keywords into website content may seem difficult to do. Here are a few tips to help you make sure that you are writing good content and not stuffing your content with keywords.

  • Even though, you do need to think about keywords for search engine optimization. Bear in mind that you are writing for your readers.
  • What do you want your reader to do? Click on a link, visit a site, or purchase a product.
  • Take a look at whether your subject and purpose are in sync. Don’t overwrite.
  • Think about the list of keywords that you are going to use. A long list of keywords can be very difficult to integrate into your text and also people may not type such a long sentence into the search window of the search engine. Search engines will give a website with too many keywords a low priority.
