keyword dilution



11:22 am on Dec 21, 2005 (gmt 0)

This is puzzling me.

I want to target a two word keyword phrase :-

ie in my title tags:- keyword1 keyword2

But I added a third keyword to capture an extra variation.

What effect does that have on my primary two keyword phrase? is the effect diluted?

the 3 word phrase only gets 10% of the two word traffic?

i don't think it will make too much difference to be honest but i believe there would be a better way to do it.

rather than try to fit the 3 words on one page, why not create a page for each and purly optimise it for that term.

i think this would be the best way to do it and there would be no dilution at all then.

briggidere makes a good suggestion about making another page to optimize for the other search term. However, it's important to write a compelling title that will encourage a user to click on your site. Instead of "Green Widgets", try "Green Widgets at super low prices!". Experiment with different titles, watch your logs, and see what titles are bringing in the most traffic.

Hi, thanks Mona for the advice, I am wondering if adding more words like you suggest would lead to more keyword dilution - that is if keyword dilution exists - that is what I would really like to know.
