Keyword, Niche and Market Research

I've been adding some of my sites keywords to Jaaxy Site Rank, so that I can track how they are performing on a regular basis.

I was curious to see how my site keywords

You can always manually check to see which one is accurate, often the issue is a regional variation, for example Jaaxy only returns results for Google.COM but a member is checking on Google.CO.UK for example.

Thanks Rich - Good point. I'll try the manual check and compare.

No probs. :)

I'm developing several cornerstone (evergreen) content pages for my site.

I want to make them pages so that visitors can view and read them in widescreen with no sidebar

Hey Patrick did you ever get the answer to what you was looking for. If so I love to know what it was!!!!!

Patrick, thanks for posting the question... I appreciate your asking questions that I have had and the answers that you received!

Best Regards,

Bert

Bert - My pleasure. Looks like we are receiving some great responses.

I have more than 70 pages in one site and I use a plugin for this. So they all are in categories and have tags as well. This is what I suggest you to do, a light harmless plugin.

But there are several other options here. You can have posts without the date so this will make them look like any page, and you can put it in the main menu like a page.

One comment - I would not go for wide screen, this is not easy to read, just my thinking. There are statistics which show this is bad.

There is nothing wrong of having ads but you can remove them in other ways. Use Add Inserter plugin for this.

Jovo - These are all great suggestions. I will take a look a the Add Inserter plugin. Thanks for the tip on widescreen.

Is it a certain topic or content you want to bring to attention of the reader? Make a post about the page and link to your page from the post. You don't want to copy/paste, perhaps make a cool teaser featured image on the post and then in your post content, hyperlink to the page with a button or any "featured page" widget. I've been using the SiteOrigin Page Builder and Bundles lately, love them, so easy to use and never glitchy.

Another option for sidebar VS no-sidebar is to select an optional sidebar that is less distracting. Feel free to msg me your website and I'll be more able to help provide my "two cents" to assist your intent.

Ben - Great Suggestion. I never considered this approach. Appreciate the assistance.

It depends on your theme Patrick. Not all themes have the full width option for posts. And yes, it needs to be a post to take advantage of categories. When you're writing your post click on 'Screen Option' top right and see what layout options are available in your chosen theme.

Thanks Marion - I'll have a look.

Yes just copy what is in your page into a post but also read reply below as duplicate content can be frowned upon by search engines but really depends on your reasoning for doing so

Thank you!

Hi Patrick,

You could have the same sort of discussion on a page as is on a post ... but ... you would want to make sure that you don't simply copy and paste the same information on both a page and a post.

Google doesn't care if your info is on a page or a post. Search engines seek out keywords to list your site's content as how relevant it is to their visitor searches.

Should you have similar info on a page and a post, you might want to make sure you link each of these together so readers will know there is more information offered.

Hope this helps you.

Thank Trish! Excellent idea. As always, I appreciate your input.
