    Hey guys, noobie question here. Don't be too harsh on me :p

    If I am investing in a campaign, and I have the option of 5-10 keywords, how many should I be using?

    It probably depends on the niche, but my general question is more keywords or less?

    I have 5 that are great for my niche, and a few others that are decent/low volume. Is it better to just use the 5 or add a few extra? (Assuming that I pay the same cost for up to 10 keywords)

    Without knowing your target market and what campaign you would be running it is really difficult to answer. Give us some more details then you can get some good ideas here.

    Rather than focusing on only five keywords, you can work on with some more keywords too. Make sure it is more relevant to your business and don't focus on any generic keywords. To be more specific, we can't conclude in keyword usage.

    There's no limit on how many keywords your website can have. If you have more keywords getting indexed in google why not? You'll get more traffic out of those keywords anyways.

    Try branding the main domain niche if you run offsite optimization campaigns. Then go with targeting your marketing keywords.
    Initially try with 30 keywords. 5-10 is an average up to me.

    Do not take high competitive ones and make yourself struggle. Prefer long tail ones and get them ranked in top positions.

    It is bad to focus on a single keyword or too many keywords, probably it is waste of time. The exact number of keywords to be targeting will completely based on your budget and timeframe.

    Good question, you must face this confusion whenever you looking out about keywords.
    There is no limitation on competitive. You can use more than 50 keywords as much as you can.
    So don't worry about number of keywords for all. Ok.
    Keywords are much important in SEO so you should be careful on choosing exact and related keywords more.
    I said in too simple manner to make you understand and clear your doubt about keyword.
    I hope you understood now.
    Good luck. Make anything Success.

    Use as much keywords as you want. You can even target those low competitive keywords to maximize everything. Just don't stuff your content with the same kind of keyword over and over again.

    It boils down to on-page seo, if you like to rank for keywords, the first thing is to avoid keyword stuffing while listing down longtail/secondary keywords. Some bhw members use Silo structure to interlink while others personalized methods.

    All the best

    Simple, a page for every topic and a few keywords for every topic of your niche. This keeps pages relevant.

    I would suggest not having too many. I would say that you will want at least 5 but go for no more than 7 or 8.
