Have You Asked Yourself - How Do I Use a Keyword

Last Update: October 21, 2020

Are you a newbie to WA and/or someone who struggles with the use of keywords in your content? Are you asking the question, how do I use a keyword? The answer is simple when you look at the entire picture and not over-think the process.

REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE WRITING FOR

The reason for this short post and link to answers, is in response to keyword questions I have seen lately from several new WA members. Let me say this right now. The content you write should seek to get attention from the human reader and NOT Google.

This is not to say that keywords are not important, but do not make them distract your attention away from who your content is being written for. Trust me, Google is going to rank your content regardless of whether you use a target keyword or not.

Properly using keywords is important for getting the best overall SEO results. You just do not want to over do it. Think of it this way. When you read content, do you care if the keyword you searched for appears multiple times? NO, you just want the content to answer your query.

Guess what? Neither does Google. If you want to rank high in Google, write your content and use your keywords with the mindset that an actual person will be reading it looking for answers. The link at the bottom of this post will answer the following questions.

  • What exactly are keywords?
  • How often do I use my target keywords?
  • Does your target keyword have to be in the title?
  • Can I use a keyword with less than 10 searches and traffic?
  • Do keywords have to be grammatically correct?
  • Do I have to use a target keyword to get ranked?

How To Use Keywords For Your Website

Always use keywords but do not make them consume all of your time when writing your content. Google ranks you based on the amount of information you provide for your readers. To get the answers, click the link above or leave your comments below.
