Multipage Blog posts
bad for SEO? different target keywords for each page

 3:58 pm on Jul 21, 2008 (gmt 0)

Should each page of a multipage article target different keywords? and if so should i change the title tag accordingly?

as it stands there are often 3 page posts on the blog with a 'next' link at the bottom of the first 2 pages.

doesn't seem ideal for me. any suggestions?

My 2 cents is that you're thinking way too much about SEO. It's fine to target a specific set of keywords with a new article if the article is also relevant to your site and useful to users. But don't break up articles just for SEO reasons when one page could easily have housed all of the article's content, and don't worry about going after different kw's with different *parts* of an article. You'll make yourself crazy. Bad ROI too.

If the article is genuinely too long to be convenient for the user, or if it really does seem to contain what naturally break into three or four parts, then fine. Otherwise, don't sweat it down to that level of detail. Do another article instead. :)

you could always slice your long blog posts to 2-4 different posts, instead of compressing it to one. this could also keep your readers interested to read your other posts. :)
