    Google considers the following words as matches:
    • assessing
    • assessment
    • assessments
    • sales
    • sales assessment
    • sales assessments
    • salesassessment
    This is important for how you sculpt your relevance for the target search terms. See TF/IDF in wikipedia for technical details. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tf–idf

    My software measures of 300 on-page factors across the top 100 results for your search term. It then calculates the correlation coefficients for each factor versus the the results' rank positions in the Google SERPs. Here are the factors that had statistically significant correlations with rankings:

    Note: The Grey Column is the Page 1 average measurement for the factor... forgot to size that column so you could read the heading.

    Yesterday I said in a different post that I don't often see correlations in A tag matches as an on-page factor... this appears to be one of the exceptions to the contrary.

    This is an interesting one: In the distant past I used to use this as an exploit to keyword stuffing.

    upload_2017-3-13_9-46-18.png

    The usual suspects still appear to work:

    upload_2017-3-13_9-48-10.png

    upload_2017-3-13_9-49-5.png

    Again for multiple reasons: every page has a canonical tag

    upload_2017-3-13_9-50-23.png

    I see this correlate a lot but keep in mind that LI is often used for jQuery navigation widgets:

    Meta Description:

    upload_2017-3-13_9-53-18.png

    Open Graph anyone?

    upload_2017-3-13_9-54-2.png


    There is a ton more, but alas... BWH will only let me attach 10 images so you will have to look for the rest in the data table at the top!

    It seems like a very competitive keyword.

    You must have knowledge about SEO if you managed it.

    Just do what you already did that worked... more.

    Search Term: Cosmetics
    upload_2017-3-13_19-34-18.png

    This is a good example of a high volume search term that I think might be manually curated. My theory is that manually applied factors break the algorithm correlations and this usually only happens in the VERY high volume search terms. It could also happen if the websites neglect on page SEO and largely focus on visual elements and off-page authority, but I think manual curation of top industry keywords explains it better.

    For example when you search a term that is still high competition but unlikely to be manually curated then you find a LOT more correlating factors (the orange ones) because more of the results were ranked by the algorithm.

    Search Term: Glitter Eyeshadow

    Here is a REALLY interesting one! A real black eye for syndicated content in this niche:

    For all the meta-keyword deniers out there. :)

    All the data is from Cora. The relevancy checker is built-in in the sense that the software finds the words Google counts as matches from the SERPs and then that list of words is used to determine match counts when needed. There are a number of walk throughs on the tool in the video documentation: https://seotoollab.com/documentation.php

    The software UI and output is all in English but you can use the software in international data centers and in unicode character sets. Here is a google.co.jp example:

    I am sure there are people in here, including me, that can help you. The question is do you have budget to work with for consultation? Or are you looking for recommendations?

    My creativity was lacking that day. Might not be the best example. If you have a better one in mind let me know and I'll post more data.

    In the latest Black Hat vs White Hat Josh B had me in tears when he said "I use Google's keyword planner. It's not very accurate but I still recommend using it"

    That tool doesn't include content ad clicks or google search partner clicks. they use an estimation algorithm... so it very likely isn't actuals.
