Do you put keywords on the homepage or do you write separate articles?

    Let's say your client gives you a few keywords to target on their website which is a PR 2 or a PR 3. Do you put the keywords on the homepage and build links to the homepage? Or do you write separate blog entries for each keyword and optimize the article (2% density, title, pics, h1, h2, bold, underline, etc) and then build links to that specific article page?

    Or both? Obviously the article page is better optimized for the keyword, but at the same time, it is a brand new page with no page rank compared to the homepage.

    You can target these few keywords at the home page, and make some new pages talking about related topic, and make internal links for the home page, but don't forget that, if the home page already ranking in some keywords, you would lose your rank when you modify the title, content and so for the new keywords

    Generally you are better off targeting just one keyword per page (one blog entry per keyword) however this isn't always strictly true. An example would be if your doing SEO for a local car wash and the keywords were "car wash in city" "van wash in city" "lorry wash in city" then I would probably stick them on different pages. However if your keywords were "cheap car wash" & "discount car wash" I would keep them both on the same page.

    I wouldn't be using 2% keyword density, forget about it. Mention your keyword in your articles but don't write for search engines write for users. An example h1 tag would be "Where can I get my car washed in city" then h2 "Joes car wash - the best in city" then sprinkle one or two mentions of "car wash in city" and "city car wash"
