Most of my posts are over 1000 words and could utilize two or more keyword phrases. Is there an advantage (or disadvantage) to doing that? (obviously, it might bring me up on more searches, but other than that)

Thanks for your reply, Charles. So my multiple keywords are a good thing. And yes, I use tags and carefully choose categories, too. Again, thank you!

I didn’t know about using tags. I’m pretty sure one of the trainings from kyle said they don’t help much so I just forgot about them. Can you explain more what and where they are?

Hi AlyseS

So when you upload your blog post over to the write of the wordpress classic editor you'll see a little box titled TAGS there primarely for Twitter and FB you want one main one that pertains to your site and use that one in all your post and then a couple more that referr to your subject

Your primary keyword that you’re targeting should be in the title and 1st paragraph as a minimum. But all 1,000 words you write are in fact keywords to some degree. So if you’re writing naturally for humans and you include other similar/related keywords, then you could potentially rank for those keywords as well.

If you mention a secondary keyword that exists as a primary keyword on another post/page, then you will want to link that keyword to the post/page.

Thank you. I do try to keep the writing completely natural, so maybe the number of keywords is fine.

I use rank math to help determine the use of targeted keywords. With rank math plugin my score is between 95 to 100, and I get ranked indexed faster with just two keyword phrases.

At first just used All In One SEO as per training, however now getting better results with rank math plugin.
