SEO Tips: How to Organize Your Site Around A Keyword List
In my last keyword building article I wrote about how to select keywords that would generate the highest return with the least amount of work.
Low Competition Keywords
"Low competition" is a relative term. To illustrate why, search the term "Marietta, Georgia real estate" in Google. Here are the key numbers:
Now here are some seemingly perplexing numbers regarding the 9th result:
Meanwhile the 10th result has…
This raises the question of why the 10th result doesn’t rank higher than the 9th result, as well as why the 9th result is even on the first page. The answer is two-fold:
For Yahoo, a term with 99 competitors and 1,300 searches every month is very "low competition." However, because it has optimized a page for the search term, and is well trusted by Google, it easily ranks.
When organizing your keywords, picking out the "low competition" words is an integral part to driving traffic. Devote a page to every word that will easily rank from your list, optimizing the title tag, h1 tag and keyword density.
Remember, just as you look to Yahoo, thinking, "I wish I could rank for a word like that without having to link-build" so too will a site smaller than yours say of your "low competition" keyword pages.
High Competition Keywords
Keywords that will require a link-building strategy before ranking are considered "high competition." High competition keywords should be broken down into semantically similar groups. Intuition is largely used to separate the keywords, but here are a few universal guidelines:
Once the keywords have been semantically split, prepare an optimized title tag containing all of the keywords from that group. Also choose one word from each group which is the most important to get ranking. That term should be what is in the anchor text of your links when you begin a link building campaign.
Overall, this strategy will save you hours of fiddling and tweaking. Remember, SEO is no different than any other business process
