Now that you’ve seen the Keyword Research Tool, we can discuss the importance and role of keywords in your achievement level. It is also important to decide on a niche, to know which direction to take. Direction is much more important than speed because 97% of affiliate marketers aren’t going anywhere fast. The only difference is that 3% built their online empire with keywords as their foundation. You are looking for keywords with high search volume and low competition within your niche.
There are three main types of Keyword Research Steps known as;
Short tail keywords – They are unique keywords and are often called main keywords. These are the keywords you want to be present in your domain name, but be objective and precise. Let’s use Niche Diet for the demonstration. Good short-tail keywords will then be Health, Diet and Weight. These three particular keywords are searched around 982,000 times on Google Per month. That’s almost a million searches, can you see where this keyword is going?
Long tail keywords – Usually no more than three keywords make up a keyword phrase. Within the niche we are using for the demo, lose weight, lose weight, lose weight fast, and rapid weight loss are excellent long-tail keywords. they look around 564,100 times on Google Per month. But you will have to research keywords relevant to your niche, which means your results will be different. Long tail keywords are being used on your site and in the title of posts. It works great if long and short tail keywords are combined.
anchor text – These are longer keyword phrases and refer to the phrase that someone will type into their browser to search for a specific interest. The kind of search someone would enter when they are much more likely to buy. For this demo, how to lose weight, how to lose weight fast, and wanting to lose weight are all great examples. Anchor text is what should be present on the home page of your site, Google Spider loves to see this and it helps with ranking. These anchor texts are searched 852,300 times on Google Per month. Now combine the results of the three tests we just did.
Yes, 2,398,400 Google searches per month for all three search categories combined. By now, you should realize the potential of proper keyword research and why the top 3% can make such disgusting amounts of money online. This article will simplify the basics of SEO, what to include in headings with titles and even categories, tag lines and individual tags. There is also the Sitemap within Google Search Console.
H1 Header Identification – Sometimes it can also be a blog page or post title, but usually it refers to the blog, site or video title. The H1 heading is where you include the main search phrases you want your site or video to rank for in Google within 15 to 65 characters. It is important to preferably keep the H1 header within 60 characters, because the H1 header will appear at the top of Google search results pages. Make the H1 header easy to read and easy to remember.
Heading Identification H2 – This is usually the title of the blog post, and once again, your desired search phrases and keywords should populate this heading. Numbers play a huge role with H2 headings, and oddly enough, uneven numbers have a more striking effect. Combine this with a “Reason Why” suggestion and you have a winning H2 header.
H3 Header Identification – Post titles often make up the H3 header as well, along with widget descriptions within the blog sidebar. When you use the text widget to load HTML code, the “Alt=” attribute usually appears as an H3 header.
A blog post title also appears as an H3 header when you use an SEO plugin like “All-in-one SEO tools” and the title of your blog post appears after the forward slash (/) towards the main domain. Using an SEO plugin will allow you to submit all of your individual pages, posts, tags and categories as individual sitemaps.
H4 Header Identification – This can be defined as something like the blog title tag tagline or H1 header. A logo image is also often accepted as an H4 header within certain plugins that can display a logo icon.
The description of the sitemap – The sitemap of your blog is extremely important, and for this simply install the “Google XML Site Maps” plugin. This plugin will share an updated sitemap of your blog to Google Search Console every time you make changes, but it may take a while (typically 2-3 weeks) for changes to appear in search results.
However, it is important to manually check sitemap acceptance from Google Search Console, even with the Google Site Maps plugin enabled. There may be times when certain errors occur with your blog’s sitemap within Google, which means that Google can’t find your blog.
Then you should test the sitemap with the tools provided from Google Search Console, fix the errors found from the C panel of your Blog, and test the Sitemap again. When the results come back with Zero Errors Found, simply delete the old sitemap and upload the new sitemap.
To access Google Search Console, you will need a Google account, as with all the free tools that Google gives you and there are many. You just need to look in the right places and then take your time learning how to use the tools. Simply search in your browser (preferably Chrome) for the search phrase “Google search console” and simply follow the instructions after opening the link on the search results page.
The blog sitemap is what search engine spiders use to crawl your blog so that it can be categorized correctly, sending the right visitors your way. This is why the presence of keywords and search phrases are so important in all your blog content, just the right ones in the right positions.
