Why Keywords Are The Most Important Part of SEO

November 4th, 2008

Just yesterday I came along a brilliant website for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). They offer a free tool for optimizing your website and a book with loads of good tips to optimize your pages for better online presence. I will be covering more tips from it, here is one to start from.

High search rankings increase your sales!

A number 1 listing on Google can be totally pointless if it is for the wrong keywords.

If the wrong people or too few people search for that keyword then your SEO efforts will be in vain. The keywords that you choose are the most important factor that decides whether you succeed or not.

If you target the wrong keywords, you’ll waste a lot of time, energy and money.

So…think twice before you start

Many webmasters think that they already know the best keyword for their websites. If they haven’t done some research, they are usually wrong. There are several reasons for that:

  • You know your business much better than anybody else. You know the special terms that are used in your branch and you know what you should search for when you’re looking for products like yours.
  • Your customers don’t know as much as you. They don’t know your terminology and they might use totally different keywords. For example, a recent study found out that many people search for the keyword “nose job”. If you optimize your web page for the keyword “rhinoplasty” then these web surfers won’t find your site.
  • Did you consider the intention of the searcher? Just because a keyword is used very often on search engines it doesn’t mean that you’ll get many customers. People who find your website through a special keyword might not be interested in purchasing.

It’s very important that you take some time to find the best keywords for your website. The time and efforts that you invest in finding the right keywords will pay back in no time. 1. Your customers are on the Internet and they have money.
