    So, I've decided to start with my Microniche website. I've found a good domain name, with good backlinks within my niche and i'm only waiting for godaddy to transfer it to my account. I've found several keywords within my niche, all are between 20-35 competition score. Now, what i plan on doing is creating an authoritative blog website with this somewhat microniche subject. However, i've found around 9 keywords within my niche that I could target. Some are a bit higher on the competition level and some are lower. Some have much higher search amounts than others as well. So, my question is should i be focusing on creating multiple blog entries for all 9 keywords at once or should i only be concentrating on one specific keyword. Furthermore, if i'm concentrating on all 9 keywords, i'm assuming i should be making blog posts specific to one keyword and not try to jam all 9 keywords in one posts correct?Any help or clarification on this would be super helpful, thanks! :)

    You should probably group your keywords together - you could have the main keyword and several very closely related keywords targeted by the homepage and then you can have longtails of that keyword, and related keywords targeted by sub-pages.

    Overlap is ok in some cases. If you were creating a page to target "Pies" then talking about "Apple Pies, Blueberry Pies, Banana Creme Pies, etc" is great! If you are targeting a page for "Apple Pies" then the page should only be about apple pies.

    Awesome, thanks for the reply! I was wondering though, a lot of my keywords are synonyms of one another or simply things like "apple pie" "best apple pie" "homemade apple pie". How would i go about with these keywords? Would I simply try to fit in all 3 keywords within the same blog post as they are more or less the same thing, simply worded differently. Also, I was wondering if there is a certain amount of words/blog posts i should do for one keyword? Should i be doing at least 10 blog posts of 500 words? 20? 100? Are there any kinds of recommendations for this in order to rank? Thanks!

    Often they belong on the same page... for example "The best apple pie is a homemade apple pie."

    Target 1 search term per page... You page will rank for more than one term but it will only rank for one term best. Don't target a keyword in more than two posts in a blog because google limits you to a max of 2 results per search in most cases.

    Regarding content tuning the degree of tuning you need depends on the degree of tuning your page one competitors use. Measure the factors from the top three results and see how they achieved those values and then figure out your content strategy to beat them.
