Keyword mapping for SEO

Do some keyword research and create a list of all the keywords for which you want to be ranked on search engines. Sort this list by priority or relevance to your business. And divide the words into “transactional” or “informational” keywords. Transactional keywords include a clear user intention to such as “buy red sneakers.” Informational keywords, in contrast, focus on obtaining information. Buyers are in this phase, for example, when they want to know more about a product before they buy it. Keyword Research and Implementation is important for making any piece of copy shine, especially in the eyes of search engines. When you link to a webpage, you’re proclaiming that you trust that content as a resource – so your brand is on the line. Use relevant and accurate meta descriptions, title tags and alt text throughout your site.

It doesn’t matter how many searches a keyword has in a month if it doesn’t accurately reflect the content on your page! Duplicate content is content that appears in more than one place online. When there are multiple pieces of identical content, it's difficult for search engines to decide which version is more relevant to a given search query. Search engine optimization (SEO) plays a crucial role in bringing in more traffic to every site. The search engines are able to analyze the reading level of the document. One popular formula for doing this is the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Readability Formula, which considers things like the average word length and the number of words in a sentence to determine the level of education needed to be able to understand the sentence.

Determining Relevance: Trust Your Gut

On regular pages and posts, Google will most probably grab a piece of related content, including the keyword used in the search query. That makes a lot of sense for news sites, for example. Still, I recommend adding a meta description to all your important pages. Getting rankings is an output SEO firms can easily sell because they’re emotionally satisfying, but they’re worthless unless they generate leads or sales--the outcome you want. Your online presence goes way beyond your site. The problem is that we tend to forget how our online footprint may extend to all the different platforms we may try out at some point and then abandon. The more pages you have give you more of a chance to rank well for a more diverse set of keyword phrases: this should technically lead to more traffic from Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Auditing Existing Content

Competitor analysis is nothing new, and companies have been researching their competitor’s links for years. However, by looking at the competitor’s backlinks and manually reviewing which links are worth having, you can then perform a link outreach and try to get a link from the same referring site. Submitting a sitemap to search engines reflecting any updates will certainly aid your cause. According to Google, a sitemap is “ a file where you can list the web pages of your site to tell Google and other search engines about the organization of your site content. Search engine web crawlers like Googlebot read this file to more intelligently crawl your site.” Don’t put off submitting your sitemap! Google will be looking to see if you have put any time into the content or just put up some content with minimal work. They want to see that you have actually put some effort into putting together something useful to the visitor and that it is good quality content. Gaz Hall, a UK based SEO Specialist, commented: "Google is now extremely advanced and answers around 15 percent of its search queries with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). This AI is called “Rankbrain” and consists of machine learning algorithms. The fact that search engines are getting smarter has very practical consequences for SEO."

Keyword mapping

Your content can target any audience, but if it doesn’t sufficiently deliver the information that audience is seeking, you’re out of luck. The modern user has a very short attention span. If a website takes more than a few seconds to load, she/he is likely to leave. Therefore, it’s really important to make sure that site speed/load time is optimized as much as possible. If you have large sections of duplicate text page-to-page – that is a problem that should be targeted and removed. Content "machines" used to develop content primarily for search engines in an automated manner could learn from basic copywriting best practices to actually make their content user-friendly and helpful.
