I'm really having a darn hard time with key words and I have watched the webinars, but I am still a little confused. Here is my situation: I am doing a website that is a New Age Spiritual website that will focus on at least five areas. I don't want to focus on just one area. I really want to share with people what I know and just the beauty of spirituality. It will be a site of knowledge and a place to buy gifts.

My Questions: does my domain have to have my keywords in it, and can I use keywords throughout the website for the other topics. Aren't those called tags? I'm probably stressing for nothing and getting a head of myself in training because I am starting the Entrepreneur Certification Program over. I'm switching gears. I changed my Niche from Bootcamp.0

I wanted a site I could truly write and know about and I had passion about. but i'm CONFUSED. I'm going in circles with Jaxxy. I don't really understand Jaxxy. I feel silly asking all of these beginner questions, but that's why I am here, right?

Please help.

Thank you for your time and support,
Miss Chellie - Michele

I will also add to these very helpful comments you have received Michelle.

Include the same ONE targeted "low hanging fruit" keyword you have targeted in your content as described by Grace (usually a long-tail keyword - a keyword of three words or more) within your:

- Meta Title
- Meta Description (Optional)

If you don't know what a meta title and meta description are, they are what a searcher will see after going a Google search. You see these all the time when you land on a SERP (Search Engine Results Page), but probably don't think of these in this term.

Here is a good example I found what I mean.

I did a Google search typing in "spiritual energy healers" as this is what came up on Google Page 1:

Spiritual Energy Healing – Deborah King
Get your energy flowing with my weekly newsletter. Your First Name* ... LifeForce Energy Healing Resource Pages · Hay House Product Resources. Follow me.

"Spiritual Energy Healing – Deborah King" is the meta title.

Within this meta title the Main keyword "Spiritual Energy Healing" has been incorporated. This is the same keyword the writer would use in their article title, first paragraph, and repeat in your closing paragraph.

"Get your energy flowing..." is the Meta Description, but they did not repeat the keyword here, as this is optional. Google no longer places emphasis for keywords to be included in the meta description for SEO for meta description. You don't need to include it there.

Also notice their URL https://deborahking.com/spiritual-energy-healing/ which includes the same keyword at the end of the URL after .com/ which is also called the "permalink".

The permalink does not have to include your keyword, but this is a good practice and it can also further improve your SEO.

Also note, when you are using WordPress and changing your meta title or meta description, you would do so in an SEO plugin such as All-In-One SEO or Yoast. And when you do so in either,
if your keyword is in your article title the plugin will automatically set it as your permalink.

These are good SEO practices for your keywords, Michelle.

I hope this along with the other comments has helped.

Thank you so much Jetrbby80316. You are very kind to be so detailed like Grace. It's still a little over my head but I'm hoping as I go deeper into training it will get clearer. I do understand some of what you are saying though, and again thank you so much for taking the time to explain with such detail. Not everyone would do that...smiles.

Michelle, copy this comment and the others and save it where you can later retrieve it and find it easily (such as a Word file).

After you finsh some of the training, go back to it - you will say to yourself "A-Ha!", everything will ring through as clear as day!

Also, please call me Kaju.

Hi Michele,

First of all take a deep breath, you're doing fine. :)

Your niche is great, if you want to focus on the 5 areas, that's great too, it just means you'll be building a very big site basically.

Keywords are what we call the words that people use to search for things in Google.

The idea is if you also use the same words that people use to search in Google, then you'll have a better chance of your article showing up on Page 1 search results.

Keywords are the life line for your site as these are the words that will bring traffic to your site.

You certainly do NOT need keywords in your domain name but you can and sometimes it does help with ranking.

The training will show you how to use keywords in your content and you'll be looking for low hanging fruit keywords to use, specifically.

If you are not in Level 2 of the training then it may be confusing at this point.

You are to look for these low hanging fruit keywords and use them to create your content around those keywords.

Each post you write will concentrate only on one of the keywords.

You basically find keywords with:

AVG > 100
QSR < 50

For me, those are the ideal criteria to look for in any keywords. Those criteria will make more sense as. you go through the lessons and use Jaaxy more.

So to get that kind of keyword, yes, it's usually a phrase.

You will find as many keywords as you can.

Each post you write will be tackling only ONE of these keywords on your list.

sample "how to train a dog to sit"

Then you will incorporate that phrase in your title, first paragraph, and then once again near the end of your post.

Title: "3 Easy Steps: How To Train A Dog To Sit" - Always add to the title to make it enticing and reason why people should click on YOUR post on their results page.

First paragraph (within first 160 characters):
"When first getting a new puppy, you will want to learn how to train a dog to sit when he or she is 2 - 4 months old.

I have 3 easy steps below that I'm going to go through with you so you can teach your new puppy...."

Body: anything you want.

Last section of post somewhere:

"If you have learned how to train your dog to sit, then please comment below and let me know of your results!" - or something else, anything that will bring that keyword back into your article.

That's it! :) That's how you use keywords, you can come back to this message later when you get to those lessons.

I hope this helps you understand keywords more. :)

Thank you so much Grace for holding my hand. I'm gonna watch the "Understanding Keywords" webinar AGAIN today, but everything you told me helps a lot!!!! and My site shouldn't be too big. Just some info on each page with posts touching on some of the topics. I will have a directory where they can get a lot of info...my affiliate links will be attached...at least I think so. My brain is way a head of what I even know how to do. It's a vision without having the tools yet:-)

Again, Thank you Grace, your a doll,

Pick a domain that is simple to remember and makes sense to what you are going to be doing. Think about your "brand" what is it you want people to think of when they hear your name or your website?

Keywords have much more to do with the content you create, and will be the words that a reader enters into a search engine to find exactly what they are looking for.

Guidelines that make your content valuable include: Blogs should be about a specific problem your reader is having. In the introduction let everyone know that this problem will be the subject of this blog post.

Then still in the introduction mention the solution you have. You don't need to go into detail but make it alluring so that they want to read the rest of the post.

The body of the blog will discuss the different benefits of your solution, address any of your reader's questions and ease their mind about how wonderful this decision will be for them.

In conclusion will restate the problem, mention your solution again and include the action you want your reader to take now that your post is finished (CTA- call to action).

That means often you will be using the problem as your keyword phrase, part of your title, and your H2 heading (the first heading after the title). This will get things going nice a simple for you and allow you to add your affiliate links later on when your traffic is consistent.
