    Hello reader,

    I was just curious to know, if you do On-Site and Off-Site SEO for a keyword such as 'dog tags' will you also rank for the word 'tags' and 'dogs' seperately? Obviouisly you would be lower in the search engine.

    Another example, say you wanted to rank for just 'dogs'. Could you make a lot of backlinks with 'dog tags', 'dog collars', 'dog food', 'hungry dog' to increase your ranking of 'dogs'? Or is it better to make backlinks with just 'dogs'?

    Thanks

    You may rank if the competition is easy , but mainly when you do SEO you need to think at the exact match keyword , because you will rank for the keywords that you are going to build links to.

    I always suggest keyworded domains for getting good ranking in the search engines, your title and onpage optimization is the second part, third part is backlinking.

    Yes I understand.

    But what I'm asking is if you wanted to rank for 'cheap speakers', would having a title 'super cheap speakers for sale' be worse than just having the title 'cheap speakers'

    Also I thought plural keywords were interchangeable with non-plural.

    Then again I did just search 'dog' and 'dogs' in google and they are vastly different.

    If you wanted to rank for the shorter-term, you would want your title to be that. However, starting off at the long-tail will eventually allow to rank for both overtime. The benefit of the long-tail is that you can rank quicker, and it's a much more targeted KW.
