    Hello folks,

    In my niche I have two keywords of interest that have one word separating them. The site will be about both.

    One is like:

    "Large boxes"

    and the other

    "Large blue boxes"

    They both get a bit of traffic but little competition, though "large boxes" gets the most traffic. There is not much competition for "large blue boxes" at all. I'll later add on for "large green boxes" and such.

    Should I make one page for each keyword and write articles for each page, or should I try to include onsite SEO for both keywords and have all the articles point back to one page?

    There is less than 25,000 quoted results for large blue boxes, and less than 50k quoted for large boxes if that helps.

    Thanks!

    Either way will work, but alternating keyword use and synonym use on the same page and then linking to a single page using alternating keywords will probably bring you better results in the long run.

    I have heard exactly the opposite. I always hear its best to target your niche as much as possible. I'd make one for both as whoever goes to the site based on color is more likely to do whatever it is you want them to do since they were searching for the specific color even, most likely. It sounds like whatever you're doing is a pretty easy page, so why not try all of them, experiment, and see what works best?
