How to find LSI keywords.

Okay, now you want to know how to find your LSI Keywords. It actually is much easier than you probably imagined. In all likeliness you’ve probably used a lot of them already. But to find the most important ones, the ones that draw the most traffic, you have to do something. There are hundreds of crazy inventive and downright strange methods that some people use to find these words. I don’t care what your SEO expert neighbor says. You can’t take the square root of your great aunt Martha’s weight and use it to divide the number of nephews she has and add that number to 3 and count up from the youngest and use the letters in his name to make the worlds most amazing LSI Keyword! The best way to find these words (and don’t let anybody tell you different) is to ask Google! Google is the search engine we’re trying to impress, so we’ll ask it what it thinks is the most important and or relevant. This is actually incredibly easy, as Google just gives us this information, in order of importance, through its “Google Keyword tool” (which is free)

Step by step

Okay, so here’s how you do it. Go ahead and Google “keyword tool” or “Google Keyword tool” and you should be able to find it pretty easy. Don’t be confused with other forms of Google Adwords. You don’t have to have an account with this particular tool to make it work. You should find a website with a text box/search bar. This ridiculously long link should take you there.

Once you’re in, just type in your main keyword into the text box, and all of the words that come up underneath it are all of your LSI Keywords, as far as Google is concerned. (Which is pretty much all that matters.) The words at the top are the most important to Google and the ones at the bottom are the least important. Take any number of these words and pack them into your content for your site. The more the merrier. The more LSI you can fit into your web page, the more Google will believe that your site is what it says it is. I would recommend at least 10 LSI Keywords in your main web page and sprinkled throughout your entire site as well. However avoid stuffing the same keyword over and over as that is black hat and it doesn’t even work. Variety is king.

Hey guys, I appreciate the comments. Instead of replying to them all individually, I'm going to do a mass comment. Thank you Melissa Amy Golden and JP for your comments. as always, i appreciate them.
Amy, I've never written an article linking to a site so I wouldn't exactly know if that would work, but the principals of SEO are the same, I would assume.
Golden I do have some webpages for you guys to see as examples, but all of my sites are a little old and need a little love, so let me tweak them, and then I'll make a post for it. Keep an eye out!
JP I actually do social bookmarking yes, but it takes about 15 minutes and I don't have to do anything by hand, so I wouldn't consider that back linking. I've never done an article, but it sounds like a good way to do things, so if you could shed a little light on that for me i would appreciate it. I would be happy to post some More information on LSI Keywords, but what exactly did you mean by a case study? I'm more than happy to help, but I'm a little confused.

I guess what I mean by a case study, would be an example of a post in which you were able to demonstrate the use of a target kw and LSI kw's and perhaps show some traffic results from the various kw's used. As for articles, I think most people here use Street Articles alot and link back to their websites from within their articles. Street Articles seem to index and rank rather quickly.

I'm going to work on this today because I pretty much used my main kw's throughout my ws. Thanks for an easy to understand tutorial.

WOW! I am definately going to do this. Thank you so much! Great, easy, relevant training. It is exciting to know there are other ways to be found. This would work in articles that link to our sites as well, I assume?

Hi TrevsorSH,
Thanks for this information. Do you have a webpage you've created using LSI keywords that people can view?

Very nice explanation of LSI Trevor and how to use them. Would you be able to do a case study as it were on a post you've made to one of your sites showing your target KW and the LSI kw you used to support it. Or create a mock post if you don't want to share any of your target kw's. Do you publish articles to article directories and do any social bookmarking? You say you don't do any back linking and was wondering if that included articles and social bookmarking. Thanks again for bringing this to light.
