I know too much. I am gonna reveal very important info about keywords, so go and grab some popcorn cuz its going to be a long read. I will wait. lalalala ok did you come back yet? No? Oh! ok! Still waiting...lalala, You back yet? Ah! finally ok. well..you are not eating your popcorn...OK. thats better.
A lot of folks think the more keywords they fit into their METa tag the better ---BOOOOO WRONG. It will actually hurt your rank. A LOT. yup . haha, i know, i know...but hey! life is still good, right? Ok What you HAVE TO DO: when making the keyword selection is to look at how many website compete for the same keyword: For example: if you decide to choose keyword "widgets" you will probably find around 80,000,000 something like this..but if you live in detroit, you might consider : Detroit widget and so on. YOU CAN START OFF with "detroit widget" and slowly move onto bigger and more competitive words like "date". Again, i am using widgets as an example.
IMPORTANT: CHOOSE NO MORE THEN THREE KEYWORDS OF YOUR CHOICE. NO MORE! ex: "detroit widgets", "fun detroit widgets", "best detroit widgets". Thats it! GOOGLE will place more "WEIGHT" on those three keywords when it comes to user searching.
IMPORTANT: In your TITLE: do not say something like "Welcome to my website..blah blah blah. WHY? DONT do that. Instead INCLUDE THREE KEYWORDS in there. make it look nice. Something like this: "detroit widgets ¦ fun detroit widgets ¦ best detroit widgets ¦
USING THIS : " ¦ " to separate them. Google likes it.
IMPORTANT: H1 HEADER Tags and H2 HEADER tags. wow. lots of weight there. figure this yourself. just note. its important.
IMPORTANT: Your PAGE CONTENT: make sure you mention those THREE keywords in your page content and even better, BOLD text those words, just ONCE each, DONT OVER DO IT. google likes that.
IMPORTANT: Include keyword in your FOOTER. YES FOOTER!
IMPORTANT: When you upload your picture to your website , what did you save your picture as? ex : my picture? ROFL. no! save it as one of your KEYWORDS.Google likes that! so you would save it like : "detroitwidgets.jpg"
This will NOT make drastic changes to your google search but IT WILL HELP A LOT!
Hope this helps!
