Once you find some keywords using Jaaxy or the WA keyword tool, the next question that gets asked is "Where do I put my keywords?"

The rule of thumb is: Keyword in the title, keyword in the first paragraph, then write naturally!

Remember, people buy things, search engines don't.

I also talk about a few other basic keyword related things in the video. I also include an example!

This is just a basic lesson. Some people have different methods that work for them, and you may find that something else works better for you. What I outline in the video does not "guarantee" rank, and it still takes consistent posting for your website to gain authority and rank.

For the first few posts on your site, it may take several weeks just for a mediocre ranking. But as you keep posting consistently, using just the simple rules outlined here can get you on page one within a day or two if you target low competition keywords.

Enjoy!

Just had an idea...I'll check the rank over time and see how it changes.

Second time I watched this and it makes much more sense to me this time! I just installed Yoast and I like it. It has really helped me write better titles and first paragraphs based on my keywords. Love your training. Thanks.

Just finished my WA review lesson and completed writing the review and was about to add keywords in the SEO tool. You saved me from an unnecessary step. Will review the SEO lesson for how to configure that properly. Many thanks.

Hi Nathaniell,

Thanks for the extra explanation. Keywords are the hardest for me to wrap my head around. I have no idea why, they just are. I'll work on applying this method for next post :)

Thanks again,

I (think) I just learned 3 cool things here, Nathaniell

u r an awesome teacher...this is what I learned

1. I should go back to all in one SEO like Kyle uses
2. Where to put keywords and break them up
3. that I only need to worry about two things...put them keywords in the title and in the first paragraph and I'm done sweatin it

Thanks for an awesome tutorial, make more please!

Jim-Bo Premium
but wait, u r using yoast in this video...am I safe to switch over to all in one or should i stick to yoast ? I mean the green lights, dude! they tell me what to do...I get em all to turn green if I can...sometimes there are a couple I can't change...such as

yoast found stopwords in your title you should consider removing them...found "to", "for" and "on"

or something like that anyways...

how could i please yoast (lol) does it rreally want me to change my title from this....

"how to upgrade to windows 10 on your PC for free?"

into this...?

"how upgrade windows 10 your PC free?"

this part of yoast confuddles me...


thanks dude!

Very helpful, cleared up the question I had about weather or not to write key words in the SEO page.

Does it make any difference if key words are written on standard website pages or in a blog?
Reply
kingshopper Premium
Yes... You want the keyword and keyword related terms throughout your content as much as possible. Check out my front page http://www.onlinemoneymaker.xyz/ My keyword character subset is "How to make money online from home" and then I have several different variations of it both longer and shorter terms. Hope this helped.

Wait a minute, I just found something that will probably answer my own question... The SEO title, SEO description, and SEO keywords in the WordPress website manager is what people see on the search engines and what google ranks me based off of right?

What about sub pages? Does the keywords still matter for them?
Reply
nathaniell Premium
What do you mean by sub page?
Reply
StormSheldon Premium
I guess I mean the drop down menus on each page
Reply
StormSheldon Premium
How about putting one keyword in the title and a different one in the first paragraph?
Reply
jvranjes Premium
You can do any way you like, but I suggest you follow the rules which are described in lessons at Wealthy Affiliate, and in this nice tutorial by Nathaniell. Those rules work.
Reply
GarySkoglind Premium
If you search Google for something, notice the bold letters based on what you search for... They are in the title, and the first part of the description on Google, that's why it's important to have the same in both... After that, you can do what you want (almost), just write naturally after that...
Reply
StormSheldon Premium
So try to keep the same keywords in the title and description below?

.Question about keywords.
I'm playing with Jaaxy and I'm confused. I wonder if you can explain it to me. In Jaaxy I found what appeared to be low hanging fruit 'best point shoot digital cameras'... MSV 2661...QSR 24...SEO 91...big green light !
But... when I search that phrase on google I find 6.5 million results and 28 pages of articles. Some one else reported 1700 results for the same phrase.
I have read the Jaaxy info about google inflation and complex algorithms from bing, yahoo and google. But I still don't get it.
Can you throw more light on this?
Reply
Mark Tait Premium
Hi - QSR means quoted search results - if you were to search in google for "best point shoot digital cameras" (including the quotes), that's what QSR is showing you.

Searching without quotes is giving you every combination of words in your search etc.

All the best, Mark

Hi Nathaniel. Great training nice and clear. Can you tell me the reason you choose to draft your post in an external document and then copy to wordpress editor?

Does it have to be in a post or can it just be in the content of a website/ I'm not thinking of doing a blog but a straight website... also can you use the keyword as the title of your webpage... does this help?

Joakin Premium
Thanks Nate,
I was just a little confused about adding keywords in the TAG section.
Is it recommended or even relevant at all?
Reply
Stayhomewow Premium
Joakin, I would just type the ones I used in my post into the tags on the right, separated by commas and shorten them e.g. instead of the long tail key word work at home online, I'd put work at home, and work online or you can use the long one as well. Hope this helps. and you can see an example in my post here- http://stayathomewow.com/internet-marketing-newbie-easy-marketing-strategies-for-traffic

Hello Nada
I checked out your website, great job.
One correction you may wanna consider: When I clicked on your pictures/images, they pop up and took me away from your content.
Here is how to fix this:
Go to edit post of page
Click on the image to edit, top left corner of the image you'll see a pencil, click on that.
Where it says LINK TO
select NONE if you don't have a certain link you want to send your readers to.
cheers

I don't get it.
I searched in google after your keywords: Libbey Craft Beer Glass Set Review. Your site was not there. Then I searched putting the whole phrase between inverted commas and it only showed 1 result, this article here on WA. Why can't google see your site?

kholmes Premium
Interesting question Laura. :))
Reply
nathaniell Premium
It's not indexed yet. I published just minutes after making this video (24 hours ago). Since I do not post frequently to my blog, Google doesn't visit me often. Check again in a day or two.
Reply
nathaniell Premium
Check now, it's there in quotes. Should take a while longer to rank though. I don't post often, so don't have much authority in Google.

Without quotes, currently ranked #37 on page 4
Reply
lauracb Premium
Hi Nathaniell,
I don't know what you did, but yes, it's there now.

One more question: What does this mean: "I do not post frequently to my blog."Like once a week?
From your experience, how often should you be writing there to get better ranking, using those keywords?

thank you. Laura
Reply
nathaniell Premium
You should be posting every week, more than once if possible. My beer website is a side project right now. This is the first post I made in several months! Bad example, I know :)

PS, I didn't do anything special to the post. I just waited :)
Reply
kholmes Premium
Hi Laura, have you looked a what your new Health Feature for your site looks like, is it a bit low.....I was posting at least 3 to 5 a week and I am looking at 100% according to the new health feature. I have been a bit behind the last couple of weeks, I think you don't have to go nuts, but just be active...I would think 1 or 2 a week would be pretty good. :))
Reply
lauracb Premium
Hi kholmes, That's the idea. It seems that once or twice per week is not that pretty good.

Nathaniel, thank you for your answers.

It's screenflow for mac. Camtasia is also an option. But the new video players also might default to HD, so that's part of it. The old videos had an HD option, but many people didn't realize it :)
