A page for every keyword?

Writing content for every connected keyword

I'm new to SEO (though not actually new to this board), and I'm wondering if a simple (but time-consuming) method helps or hurts SEO:

On my commercial website, does it help to create a coherently written page about every single keyword returned by the Google Keyword Tool?

Assuming on these pages, I link to other parts of my site and external sites that are useful for that topic.

Yes but you need to produce good content. I try to keep it above 300 words. Also it helps to interlink these pages. Watch how wikipedia interlinks its pages. One thing I do when I have a large number of articles is to put links on the bottom linking to the previous 2 pages and next 2 pages using good keyword anchor text.

Thanks. OK, so where do we draw the line? Obviously the extreme is a keyword/link farm. What are the general guidelines for how Google decides that a page or set of pages is useless system-gaming junk instead of quality content?

It's a totally legitimate method. Google doesn't slap you, they reward you with double and triple listings. To be efficient, though, group your keywords up first into groups and write one article for each group. Try to inject your other keywords into the main article.

Then come back a few months later and write separate articles for the variations which you aren't ranking for.

That's potentially a huge number of pages, probably more pages than you can make interesting to your site visitors... and probably initially more pages than you can attract inbound links to support.

I would tend to prioritize my optimization efforts, targeting phrases that are likely to produce useful traffic to the site. So, choose your phrases carefully (ie, make sure they're frequently searched, but also make sure they're not all too competitive). Target a mixture of phrases.

Longer phrases eg, are more specific and less frequently searched, but they're also less competitive and easier to rank on. Additionally, when someone types in a longer, more specific phrase, they generally know what they're looking for.

Make your content really good, and build pages gradually over time.
