Keyword Research Ideas
Here’s a screen shot of of the suggested relevant keywords and monthly hits they provide based on the main keyword, healthy living.
I’ve already manually completed full keyword research using some of the best keyword tools.
Analysis – Seo Score
Off to a good start before we have even started SEO on this content with a score of 94% which is probably because i have got into good habits from writing mutiple blog posts every day and incorporating my seo knowledge and experience.
One of the major benefits of trying a premium seo plugin like scribe or seopressor is that you will use it every time your write a new blog post or go back over existing content.
This teaches you seo and gets you into good habits that increase your knowledge and practical experience of search engine optimisation. Down the track when you are more experienced, you may not need to use any of these tools at all.
This screen shows you several elements of keyword analysis and keyword density. Main keywords are looking good.
I suggest you try using highly relevant different keywords and key phrases (long tail or mutiple word keywords) that mean the same thing or are highly related rather than repeat the same keyword over and over again unless this occurs naturally.
Your keyword density doesn’t have to be high for exactly the same keyword to rank well. It needs to be in the correct position or you need a highly related keyphrase in the correct position.
A combination of related keyphrases will already include your main keyword within the phrase.
Try a and use a combination of highly related keywords and mutiple word key phrases rather than repeat the same keyword over and over again.
Here’s another screen shot where you can see a key phrase eating healthy foods contains the keyword, healthy.
Its not rocket science folks! Practice keyword research every time you write a blog post and its just a matter of time until the pieces fall into place.
Reading alone to gain knowledge is a waste if not applied in daily practice.
Scribe suggests you add any new keywords to your title, description and towards tthe start of your posts content.
The positioning of main keywords and keyphrases is important to rank better in the search results
Scribe suggests which tags to use which can be added to the end of your blog post and also included in a tag cloud in your sidebar or footer.
This can help your search results and also help your readers find content based on keywords they find in your tag cloud.
I like to include just the main keyword as a tag rather than all the keywords as this can clutter your site and make it confusing.
Search Engine Results Page (SERP)
Big word for a big result. The results will include the first 72 characters of your Title and the first 165 characters of your description.
(This is also whats called your meta description so make sure your important keywords and key pahrases are included within these limits. Do not stuff these with the same keywords. Use highly relevant and related keywords and key phrases (mutiple word keywords – long tail keywords)
SEO Best Practices
This tab includes alot of information thats just to much to include in this post. You’ll need to try scribe to see all the information and experience all the benefits.
External Links – Strategy
There’s different ways to get qaulity links to your site. I don’t spend any time myself doing this unless its writing a guest post which i do more frequently now.
One way backlinks from a site that bhas higher page rank than yours and highly relevant content will help your ranking. If you can control the anchore text of the keywords linked to your site, even better.
This can be achieved if you write a guest post however you will need high qaulity content to get this gig.
Internal Links and Social Media
I’ve already written about the importance of internal links for search engine optimization which in my opinion are far more important than external links. Make sure you use the correct keywords in your anchor text when creating internal linkiung and that the links are relevant.
Related posts links are also very important.
Social media is not something i will write about in this blog however it can be a great way to drive traffic to your site and the search engines do count social media links as one factor in the secret formula.
The best thing about these premium seo plugins is the practical experience you build every time you use the plugins. I use Seopressor and scribe as i enjoy using them and there both very simple to use.
I know i could do everything seopressor and scribe does manually but i like to save time and also know when i have missed something important.
If i didn’t use these plugins, how would i know?
Value & Risk
Considering it would cost at least usd$500 a month to hire a seo expert, these premium seo plugins represent excellent value in my opinion.
If one of Google’s algorithm updates have reduced your traffic and are not sure how may keywords to use in your blog posts, scribe will warn you if you’re over doing it. Keyword stuffing could prove to be very costly.Subscribe for Tutorials - Double Opt In
