The website should reflect each keyword on anindividual basis, dedicating an optimized page for each one of them.Free SEO Tip #2: Choosing the Best Keywords
  2. 2. In the industry, we refer to the activity described here as "keyword research" which is short for theprocess that best identifies the web real-estate a business will want to go after.Here are some free SEO tips for performing "keyword research":Go to Google and perform a search for "Google Keyword Tool"After a brief brainstorm, input your suspected keywords into the tool. Avoid using geography, so ifyou are a small business consultant in Baltimore then just type "small business consultant".The tool will return a list of related keywords and how often each is searched for on a monthlybasis.A great keyword has a combination of relevancy and search volume. The volume is provided forus generously by Google. The relevancy, however, requires the human element.Select 5-10 of the keywords with the most relevancy and highest search volume. You are nowready for the next step.Free SEO Tip #3: Where to Put KeywordsThere are different places on each page that should include the targeted keyword. This isinformation that we discuss in these free SEO tips as well.We refer to these places as "SEO Points" and some of the most critical are:Page Title - search engines factor the page title heavily into their rankingsPage URL - this is another crucial location for target keywords. If your page URLS, you will want to consider adjusting them to something along the lines Headline - this is a tricky part of SEO since it is important that the keyword be present, whileat the same time remaining catchy and interesting to reader.Page Meta Description - It is of moderate importance to include keywords for search engines topick up but, like the headline, a good meta description remains catchy and relevant.Page Copy - it is of extreme importance that a keyword be distributed throughout the actual visiblecopy of the page.Page Meta Keywords - although Google no longer considers meta keywords in their algorithm,smaller search engines still credit them so it doesnt hurt to input target keywords there as wellFree SEO Tip #4: Optimizing Your Site for Keywords
  3. 3. Now that youve targeted keywords and learned about the "SEO Points", it is not time toimplement the changes which will yield a decent increase in the traffic and leads received by yoursite.First, ask yourself, "Do I have pages on my site that already contain my target keywords?" and "Dothese pages focus on my set of target keywords on an individual basis?"If the answer to both of these questions is "yes", then modification of the SEO Points (titles, URLs,headlines, etc.) to include the target keywords is all that is required.If the answer to either question posed above is "no", then just create new ones.SEO Tips for Creating New Pages:Create one page per target keyword and include it in the SEO Points weve previously discussed.For the best results it is imperative that each page provides information that the reader is seeking.A short page with irrelevant information will do little to serve our purpose. Take some time and putyourself in the readers shoes.A new page should be 300-500 words, including the target keyword 2-4 times throughout the pagecopy.Create a link from your homepage to the new page or else Google will never find it. Decidingwhere to link the page is important for SEO and is more of an advanced practice.Of course, many of the strategies utilized by an advanced SEO professional have not beenmentioned in this article and some of them can make a tremendous difference. However, if youwere to follow all of the steps outlined for now...Even if you do nothing else...They would likely result in an increase in traffic and leads as soon as a week from implementation.Expect a jump anywhere from 10% to 100% of the course of the next few weeks and months.Free SEO Tip #5: Consult a ProfessionalIt is our hope that if you need SEO for your site, but are on a tight budget, or are more of a do-it-yourselfer, that this post gets you started in the right direction for free SEO.If you want to know more about the ideal way to write SEO Points, advanced keyword researchanalysis with behavioral search targeting, or content structure and architecture, you may contact
