  10. 10. 2 Website Content Myth: Your site content should be packed with keywords. #WM123
  11. 11. 2 Website Content Truth: Your content should be developed naturally, with a focus on only a few keywords per page. Create a well-developed home for your keywords in site content:• “Stuffing” keywords is not helpful to your visitors,Google, or to your website’s keyword ranksGoogle spiders, or to your visitors• To sustain a positive, easy-to-use interface,you can employ a dropdown on the page Ex: Salesforce o Include more instances of your keyword o Allows for more content that Google will crawl, while preserving the page experience #WM123
  12. 12. 2 Website Content Math Behind the Truth:• Tool to Use: Your website pages, source code• Naturally written copy builds SEO strength, and is a favorite to Google spiders• Best Practices: o Implement unique, routinely updated, keyword-rich 300 – 500 words per page o Include 2-3 instances of a keyword on each page of your site for optimal results o Google spiders don’t spend much time crawling content in the meta tags anymore #WM123

  15. 15. 3 Keywords Truth: Broad keywords are very competitive and will get you less qualified traffic.Target unique keywords and keyword phrases to distinguish yourproduct / service: • Today, the percentage of long-tail search traffic is increasing (close to 70%) • Use the “drill up” method instead of “drill down” o Optimize from Specific/Exact  Broad • Not all traffic is good traffic o Qualified visitors are the key o Average Time on Site o Bounce Rate o Page Visits • Don’t miss the boat by optimizing on broad keywords first – big mistake! #WM123
