which keywords for this site
trouble listing keywords

 11:58 pm on Aug 5, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a widget boutique, selling designer widgets ;-)

all of my keywords are currently the brands of widgets, "BOBS WIDGETS, NANCIES WIDGETS, ETC" so just a list of designers. Should I list some broader terms, like the categories of widgets, etc?

Hi, stiksandstones. Yep, you should add the categories. With the ecommerce sites I work on, we always promote brand name and category, and then cross promote them together. It's the best way to cover all your bases. Something like this...

Brand Name Widgets

Blue Widgets
Red Widgets
Green Widgets

Category & Brand Name
Bob Blue Widgets
Bob Red Widgets
Bob Green Widgets
Nancy Blue Widgets
Nancy Red Widgets
Nancy Green Widgets

Mona thanks for the reply.

But in my keywords meta tags (term?) should I keep the designers in the tag? or do something different? and how many should I have?

My store is formated like you show, with categories and sub cats, etc...

Build a page for every keyphrase you want to target.

Target both brand names and product types as keyphrases.

Usually you can only target as many keywords as you can fit into your page title and that is usually only 2 to 3 keyword phrases and sometimes you want variations of the words.

Re what words to target-- don't forget problems people might be having that will draw them to your site. They may not be searching directly for what you offer but it will fill their need. You have to focus on their need.

Try and avoid using your top keywords in your keyword meta tag. Picture this, you spend 6 hours researching the best keywords, and your competitor comes along and views your source. You just saved them 6 hours worth of work.
