Where Are The Top 10 Places To Put Keywords


I listened to a webinar the other night on seo and on-page secrets. A portion of it was about placement of keywords and the top 10 places to put keywords on your page. The speaker was Dori Friend.


Dori previously worked for Apple Computer and some of her accomplishments there included things like being a part of a team that created the very first digital interface for cameras, some parts still being used today on phone cameras.

Around 1999-2000, Friend struck out on her own and began to develop strategies for ranking sites on google and other search engines.

She now speaks publicly and teaches her page one systems course. Dori has become one of the top seo experts.

She is also part of the SEO Intelligence Agency (SEI) which is a group that tests out individual seo theories to get apples to apples (if you will) insights on what actually works in getting ranked.

Dori gave us the results of the studies done on the top 10 places to put keywords.



Here's the list in the order of where they should be placed:

  1. Title
  2. Body - in the first paragraph with the first 100 words, or above the fold
  3. URL - as in domain.com/keyword (you can change your permalinks)
  4. Header 1 Tag
  5. Header 2 Tag
  6. Header 4 Tag
  7. Header 3 Tag
  8. Bold Keyword
  9. Italicized Keyword
  10. Alt Image Tag (alt text)

Dori did state that, really, the top 4 were the most important ones that tested out the best. I was quite pleased to note that these are the very places that Wealthy Affiliate teaches us to place our keywords!

Folks, we truly are getting the best training out there and we're getting it for a great price. Even if you never built a website, the value of the training here is worth every single penny, and then some!

It is nice though to see it verified on occasion from other sources.

So, content is still king and keywords and where to place them are vital to getting great ranking with google and other search engines.

ps I'm in a real kick ass mood today and when I saw your title, I sort of immediately thought of an 11th place to put keywords :) ahem, seeing as you didn't explicitly state on a page/post! :D

oh yes, you're safe, my thoughts weren't aimed at you - just a sort of in general...!

see point 3, when you say url - are you saying the name of the post/page?

Some people think they need to choose a website domain name with a keyword, but that isn't an agreed upon strategy for 2017

And then the title of the article is the same or different? I'd been making mine the same as the post name, but beginning to think they can be very different.

The keyword in your domain name may be different from the keyword for your post/page. I'll get you a screenshot to show you what I mean.
