    What are the big benefits of incorporating LSI into your articles?

    Here is what I understand:
    • An LSI article will rank for more keywords than a standard article.
    • Google will see an LSI article to be more relevant then a standard article?

    Can someone explain the benefits of having an LSI article instead of a standard article for a website?

    Someone quoted this
    Why Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) is Important To Your Site

    In a nutshell, LSI is a method of judging the content of websites to determine just how relevant their content is to a particular keyword or key phrase being searched. This is the more effective method being praised today because it actually prevents keyword spamming and unnecessary backlinks.

    My View
    Importance factor hard to judge but looks to me like a new spin - buzz call it what you may with little or no tangible upside...

    I think it helps a little to fight off Google's text spam algorithm. I think that using correct grammar is more important than LSI, when it comes to that.

    However, usage of some high search volume LSI keywords in your articles, almost always brings lots of "long tail" :) visitors.

    Does the concept of keyword theme silos relate at all to LSI?

    Here is the layperson's guide to LSI. Basically, you can think of LSI as synonyms. Let's say you have an article about cars. In the article you can use the term cars over and over again. But you can also use autos, automobiles, trucks, etc. Through the use of LSI, Google basically looks at that content and says all of those terms are related to each other and refer to cars.

    For those who want the actual math behind LSI you can check out the Wikipedia entry.
