    I really need help with keywords. I have offers that I would like to promote, but I have problems with choosing keywords. I own Traffic Travis, Market Samurai, and MircoNiche Finder, but I still have trouble deciding what information to use. Do I decide to choose a URL name that has a URL with the most searches and ignore the rest? Do I only focus on 1 longtail keyword per website? What #s in the google keyword tool or Market Samurai do you go by to justify choosing a particular keyword? How many searches vs. how much competition? Do I use other keywords in the articles that I am writing or do i just focus on that one good longtail keyword? Yes I know that I am a piss poor newbie that should be drawn and quartered for not knowing, but I can be executed in the village square after I get done with this lol...Thanks any help is truly appreciated.

    I would like to know, do I only pursue 1 longtail keyword? Or do I pursue multiple keywords? Thats where I am having a lot of confusion from. When I see a good keyword and other words very similar to it, how can I rank for multiple words? Do I use each of those different keywords within my content, description etc? Or do I only try to rank for 1 longtail keyword and be done? Thanks for the reply

    As much as I've figured out - it's easier to begin with 1 keyword which you want to rank for. You promote this keyword using it as anchor text on your backlink. Also make sure your content is relevant to this keyword. I use density as a direction on what content should look like. Maybe keywords density is a myth - but it's more comfortable to follow some kind of lead. My blogs are very fresh - 4-5 days. But already on serp for the desired keyword - kinda keeps me going.
    Now how to make sure if KW is profitable and can you beat the competitors? I followed noble samurai instructions (not sure where it was, but pretty good directions how to use Market Samurai).
    About KW's profitability - adwords CPC for this kw + adwords traffic/kw searches daily, I guess? A sticking point of mine still. I ranked on one of my kw's on first page, it claims to have ~5k searches daily - but I sure do not notice that.
    Hope that gets you somewhere.

    Don't make a site around 1 keyword.... Make a site around 5-10 keywords

    Each keyword should have more than 1000 EXACT SEARCHES / month for the keyword phrase ---- puppy training

    example of broad search: Where to do martial arts *training* and sell my *puppy* today
    example of phrase search: puppy training to win a fight
    example of exact search: puppy training

    Basically, you need 5-10 keyword phrases with 1000+ exact searches / month (Yea, google lies... also check wordtracker for this).

    Check competition!

    Keyword in quotes (like this "puppy training") should have less than 50.000 results
    allintitle:puppy training should have less than 10.000
    get SEOquake for firefox and check the PR of top 10 results (aim for PR less than 3 and LINKS TO THAT PAGE (not domain) less than 100).

    build 1 page around 1 keyword phrase
    10 pages = 10 keyword phrases
    interlink pages together with proper anchor text
    use image tags
    use ENTICING descriptions and titles (60% of the people when searching on google look first at the description).

    ex: "Puppy Training Tips - On this page you'll find 10 proven tips that will help greatly with Puppy Training"

    See? I put keyword in the beginning and in the end! Also keyword in Title! google will bold these.

    anyway, without further blah blah blah...

    gl and enjoy! :)
    Build 1 page around 1 keyword phrase

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Thats exactly what I needed to know! I just have to ask how do I link the pages with anchor text? I understand what anchor text is but I am wondering do you mean that I create a link to the other pages thru anchor text ? So that would mean that I need to create anchor text links to each page from all the other pages? For instance if I have 5 keywords page 1 will have anchor links to pages 2-5, and page 2 will link to pages 1 & 3-5? Do I need to do that within every article that I post? This is where I really get confused.

    Well, you should RANDOMLY interlink pages together.

    Don't make it something robotic like page 1 2 3 4 linking to 5.... 2 3 4 5 linking to 6... or something crazy like that.

    For example you have your newest page called "puppy training tips" and another page called "how to train a puppy".

    You start your 'puppy training tips' page.... and somewhere in the body (in the 2nd paragraph or something like that) put something like "These tips are essential for any puppy owner but if you want a complete A - Z method check out my other articled called <a href="url to your other page>How to train your puppy</a>. It gives step by step xxxx that any dog owner will benefit from.

    Something like that. Yea, there are seo plugins for wordpress that automatically identify your phrase keywords and makes a link out of them.

    Just go do wordpress and search for "SEO plugins"!

    Onpage seo is easy to do. Offpage is where there's lots of work required. :(

    And don't go over 2% with keyword density. If your keyword phrase is 2 words.... teoretically you should put the keyword phrase a maximum of 2 times every 200 words.

    Title and 1st paragraph, for example. If your content is 400 words... add it in the 2nd paragraph and also in the last paragraph...

    Something like "I hope you enjoyed this Puppy Training Course. Stay tuned for there's more!".

    And don't forget to FORCE people to submit comments to your site.

    "If you have any puppy-related questions please ask them in the comment area below and I'll gladly reply"

    When the user base is sufficient users will help eachother in the comments. Google will see all this fresh content coming out from comments and be like 'omg, a community! not some shitty blog with 3 pages with no updated content'.

    Also you can use gravatar to get an image for your comments (you assign that gravatar to a mail account) and just comment on NICHE RELATED blogs... Add 2-3 lines of valuable comments... Eventually you can ask the blog owners to put a link on their sidebars to your site (if your site is full of resources)... some will ask for link trades, some will be like 'sure, np'. (I was like 'please, sir, i'm hardly getting any traffic, any help is appreciated' - this won't work so much in internet marketing niche...

    Also get FEEDREADER and the rss from your niche related blogs to it. As soon as a new article pops up gogogo and comment on it. You can try putting Anchor Text in the name (ex: Dog Training Tips commented on this article) but this looks like spam... Some people just put their names in the name section (but in the eyes of google, no relevant anchor text). Try with both and see what works for the blogs you're commenting on.

    Hope that helped! Btw, just dig around, get all the books from the member download sections, keep reading, google things that you don't know and don't subscribe to gurus!

    They just want to shove ebooks down your throat!

    Lol
    Focus on your seo off page rather than seo on page

    Don't over think it. Pick 1 main keyword, and like the others said pick 5-10 more for the site as well. Your structure could be something like:

    keyword1.xxx
    keyword1.xxx/keyword2
    keyword1.xxx/keyword3
    etc..

    To check for competion, look at the sites on the first page of google. The number of sites in quotes or not in quotes or whatever doesn't matter. It's the 10 on the first page you have to beat. Check their PR, domain age, number of backlinks to the page and to the domain, etc...
