How Many Keywords Should I Use Per Page
Way too often I see new members ask, how many keywords should I use per page? And though the answer is simple, people seem to make it more complicated than it really needs to be.
Let us say that my target keyword is "Qualpay is to pay in a lawsuit"
How many times do you need to use your target keyword? Google only needs to see it twice.
First in the title of the page or post. Second in the first or second paragraph.
HERE IS HOW MY POST WOULD READ
Qualpay is to Pay in a Lawsuit - FTC vs MOBE
Known to much of the MLM and MMO entrepreneur community, the FTC shut down MOBE for being a scam. The lawsuit is going after many people and companies who had dealings with the MOBE scam.
MOBE had to use payment processor companies to handle credit card payments. Qualpay is one such company. Now Qualpay is to pay in a lawsuit money it is currently holding on MOBE's behalf. Breaking News below.
DID YOU SEE WHAT I DID?
I used my target keyword in my post title. TIP, the closer your keyword is to the beginning of your title, the better for your rankings. In my example above, the keyword is at the beginning of the title.
I then used my target keyword again within the second paragraph. I do not need to use that keyword again. Just write naturally in a conversational way. More than twice, has NO ranking benefit. Using four or more can harm rankings.
TIP, When you write your content naturally, you are typing out your conversation with your website readers. They want to read the information they are seeking that is relevant to their search query. Plus you will create other keywords that will rank.
You do not have to use your target keyword more than twice to rank for that one keyword. Your website readers, and Google, want to see content written in a conversational tone that provides information being searched.
