Boost Website Traffic With LSI Keywords

Last Update: June 03, 2019

What Are Latent Semantic Indexing Keywords?

Hi Folks

Members who read my WA Blogs have often asked me how do I manage to get indexed and ranked so quickly with them. My simple answer would be research and doing my due diligence with keyword research. This has always been the tried and tested way to find great keywords.

But its not just down to finding the right keyword. You should also have secondary keywords, or as some would say - LSI Keywords.

What are they I hear you ask?

What Are LSI Keywords?

Latent Semantic Indexing are basically secondary keywords that are semantically related to your main keyword. However they are not just synonyms or keywords that are similar in meaning. LSI keywords are also keywords that are sentimentally related with your primary keyword

In the past, keywords would easily rank a webpage just by inserting large amounts into an article or blog. However you should be aware that this practice of stuffing what you publish full of keywords will be punished by the search engines.

So what can you do to prevent being penalized?

Enter LSI Keywords To Save The Day!

These are essentially secondary keywords in support of your primary keyword that are related to the keywords that you audience are using to find what they are looking for, and Google does this by using a system known as LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). In a nutshell, its based on user search patterns and behaviour. Simply put, how one keyword search is usually linked to another keyword search.

Google has confirmed that by using these type of secondary keywords your post or page will rank better. This makes a great deal of sense because people are searching for the same keyword in various ways. Using LSI Keywords your page will seem to include all the other relevant and related indexing by the Latent Semantic Analysis.

Ok folks there you have it and for those of you who haven't used this method of getting your site posts indexed and ranked or perhaps have never heard of it then I suggest you give it a go. It does work.

The first link below takes you to a blog that gives great tips and advice on how to find LSI Keywords to give your SEO a boost to generate more traffic.

Hello Robert

Am looking at the plugin for WP so to aid in the LSI support

What am getting is Rank math and Expand SEO

But Expand SEO had not been tested with the current version of WP 5.0

Are you referring to these or do you have another one?

Thanks

What plugin do you mean?
I don't use a plugin, I just use the tools.

Not all tools get tested with current versions or upgrades of Wordpress simply because the owners/creators of the tools don't upgrade the tools.
Therefore a tool created a year ago will of course not have been tested with a current version of the same plugin a year ago.

Yes agreed

Was mentioning it because you were saying that you could get a plugin for WP so was looking up the ones that showed up as plugins.

Though maybe you had used one of them.

No need to add yet another plugin Dino when its easier to just use the tools.

Hello Kim and where have you been hiding since you joined coz I haven't seen you around my blogs very often.
I guess you have been much too busy building your business and that's ok.

As for me - I'm always happy to point people in the right direction so hopefully you are now pointed in the right direction when it comes to keyword strategies.

Hey Robert!

January 2018 marks my fourth month here as a WA member. The last 3 months of 2017 were definitely about focus. But if you read my latest blog post, you'll see that I lost focus and re-found it. And the month of December was a little cray cray (i.e. crazy).

So, if I'm quiet, I am definitely trying to focus on my websites. But it's super hard when there are so many tips like these. The importance of keyword research is relevant to where I am in my learnings and affiliate marketing journey. So if I'm learning from you, I'll definitely let you know, with comments, likes and shares, oh my! Smiles :)

Hi Clotelle and thank you for reading my blog.
This info will certainly help with keywords.
As for content that is entirely down to you.
Good or bad you must include good keywords in all their variations and LSI is just one.

This is exactly what I needed to know. I was wondering how other pages got ranked without having the keywords I typed into the search box as their title.

Can I ask though, if I'm using LSI, what do I make my post title? Would that be a low fruit keyword? Or does it not matter because it's all going to get ranked anyways?

I also heard that it's important to put your keyword in the first paragraph, is this necessary when LSI Keywords are being used?

I appreciate any help on both questions!

Robert-A Premium
Hello Megan and thank you for your comment.
You don't actually have to use a Keyword within your title because its so much better to incorporate keywords (low fruit ones or otherwise) into your content and you will get ranked with them.
This is where LSI Keywords come into their own simply because you can use as many related keywords as you want to.

It is a good idea to base the title of your Post/Page on what you are writing about, hence the keywords within the content.

Yes its a good idea to have your MAIN keyword within your Post/Page Heading (H1 Tag) and again within your first paragraph.
It wont do any harm to have it again as an H2 Tag

Perhaps you should read other blogs of mine about titles and headlines here - Hope this info helps you out.
Have a really great Monday.

Reading this has just made my day! I was kind of under the impression that I'd have to shoe-horn keywords into my content to get indexed by google, which I really wasn't entirely comfortable with. This suggests that staying on topic and just writing naturaly will be rewarded. Am I right in thinking this is the case more or less?

Hello Wayne and yes what you say is right enough.
Use keywords within your content that are related to your topic and you can't go wrong.

LSI, a great way to add your secondary keywords for more chances to rank your posts higher in the SERPs.
Don't overdo it though as you could still be accused of stuffing.

Hi Robert, it is nice to hear from you too! I have been around, but not very active. I am currently in Alaska, staying in a camper trailer at my nephews. Had to come up to check on the house, pick up a few things, get my car, and visit family. Tomorrow I am heading down the Alcan with my dog, Molly. We are in the process of purchasing a house in Washington. Still up in the air where to settle. Hasn't left me much time on to spend here. Got a little overwhelmed, but working through it.
Still the turtle

Hi Linda, good to hear you're ok and a busy bee, buzzing here there and everywhere in between lol.
I'm thinking that Washington would be best regarding weather in the winter but I saw on the news a few months ago it can get pretty bad there as well.

Anyway you get settled and hope to see more of you on WA.
Take care.

Heya Robert, thanks for the great article!

How *do* you do your keyword research, though?

Cheers!
Reply
Robert-A Premium
As I said - My simple answer would be research and doing my due diligence with keyword research.

This is what it really boils down to.

You use whatever Keyword Tool and whittle the results down until you have the very best keyword you can find

This will have a low QSR with quite a lot of traffic and to be honest with you I can usually do this with the Free WA keyword Tool.

Thank you for reading my blog and hope you are having a great Friday.

How can Google analyze a keyword in other language or dialects?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Jimmy when I say Google analyses vocabulary, language and semantics I don't mean a different language than English.
Its the way that words are being used within a post - the 'Language' used not a different language than English.

However Google can translate just about every language on the planet so if your site is in another language you can be sure it will get indexed and ranked the same as one in English.
But the content must be written in that language as it is spoken and not as a direct translation.

You must have heard that old saying - Something got lost in translation.

This is so true when you are writing in a foreign language.
Hope this answers your question and thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
Have a great Friday.
