    Hey guys! I've got a quick question for you.

    Does Google take in consideration keywords lists? For example, let's say I wrote a 5000 word article and my main keyword was placed 0.5% of the time along with a dozen other, smaller long tail keywords. So far so good.

    What if I add some short of ''keywords used to reach this page: potatos, black potatos, seo potatoes, all the potatos '' thing-y at the end of my article. Does Google rank those?

    Thanks!

    Yes indeed, but It's some hell of more time consuming :D

    It's been used and abused a while ago. Google rarely needs that long to adjust its algorithm to fight this abuse. Otherwise, the idea itself is good, only 10 years ago.

    Even a 5,000 word article isn't necessarily the best way to go, but the 500 word ones are too common to make a difference. So best suggestion so far!

    I'm new to SEO so a bunch of ideas come and go; I hope someday I'll get a usable one haha! As for my article length, I found a good technological niche with products over 500$ so unfortunately I have to go with big, detailed articles to push people to buy (Well, I guess, as I just started - sometimes I wish I could time travel in 8 months to see some results)

    Thank you very much guys :eek: This forum is amazing. I've learn more useful stuff here in one month than my 5 years spent at university.

    Hello op in my point of view its necessary and unsafe one in latest google update also don't need to write enormous amount of word article nowadays. If you building up the product review site then you just write 1000 to 2000 word puller content about that products and some comparison, after that write 500 to 700 words product review articles for each product with 1.5% to 2% keywords density. Then I like your product having high price also wondering to know about your product section and your keywords competition.

    No, don't resort to keyword stuffing, excessive tagging etc tactics. They will not help your rankings in anyway apart from random variations.

    The google machine has become very efficient at judging the "language" of any text content. It will catch such attempts right away.

    You don't even need to write very long articles unless on purpose.
    However, making your article media rich can help to some extent. Like adding quality images and a video.

    You can add images and videos and set their alt tags as your keywords!

    I'd phrase them into questions and link them to relevant internal content.

    So much great advices here! Thanks a lot for this. I've got some more questions if you guys don't mind.

    I will definitely use images to rank longtail keywords now, good idea. People from my niche love pictures so I'll add some more.

    Also, what do you consider "keyword stuffing"? Having too much of a same keyword, or too much of different keywords? If the text looks natural, is it ok to add up to 20 per 2000 words? Even then, does adding a keyword only one time in an article will make it rank at all? Should I instead have 1 main (0.5-1% density) + 3-4 longtails written a few times?

    I also love the above suggestion with writing questions at the end of the article and linking related content. Reeeeaaal good stuff.

    Cheers!

    Simply remove the stuffing. Divide the 5,000 worded article in 8-10 segments/separate articles. Link them, each one can also be a standalone article in itself and with appropriate and related keywords in each ajarticle, and put links to each article in every article. Rewrite and fine tune each article, if needed. Tag appropriately. You'll stand a better chance in serps IMO.
