What Goes Into Highly Optimized Content
Keyword Intent Targeting
Begin by selecting the appropriate keyword and ensure that your chosen keywords are closely aligned with your goals and differences.
If you can understand the motive behind these inquiries and how your page contents reflect that, you’ll be able to determine the principal and second keywords which will define the entire downstream set of actions.
Let’s take a closer look at the method behind selecting keywords.
- Step 1: Find the keywords related to the subject using tools such as Google Keyword Planner.
- Step 2: Qualify keywords using demand metrics, such as search volume.
- Step 3: Classify the topic into the principal and secondary keywords related to the subject.
- Step 4: Determine the kind of page needed for the topic: a primary page, an additional supporting page, and a related page.
Examples of Good Keyword Selection
If you have a product such as one that offers online saving accounts, the main page of your site would be designed around the phrase “online savings account.”
The pages may be based on a product feature such as rates and fees or advantages such as a high-interest savings account.
You will encounter specific questions on similar pages, such as “how to open.”
If you do not know how your website is placed within this structure, you’ll get keywords that are probably best served by a different site.
The primary and secondary keywords set correctly are crucial because, as you move further down the line in your production process, your knowledge of the content you should write, how much you should write, what subtopics you should cover, and more. It is derived from these.
This is vital to ensure that your content is correctly created for your particular topic.
