    I am starting to upload a lot of content...all blogs are 500 words and focus on 1 keyword per article. The keyword is in the title, it is in the direct url. I use is early in the first paragraph....and at the very end...and throw it in a couple more times in the body.

    Now, i have heard that I should be putting the keyword in bold/italic/underline and put a hyperlink in the keyword pointing to the site or the url to the article directly.

    Can someone please tell me the best technique to use.

    Thanks!

    if possible... add sub headings and use heading tags also... that is required in your on-page still...

    Get a plugin such as SEOPressor , There was also a similar plugin shared in the Downloads section that you can download.

    Those sort of plugins will give you a checklist for on-site and on-page SEO so that you get perfect Optimised content.

    You also want to watch out for keyword density, have about 2%-4% as that is what i think is the right amount for good search engine rankings.

    You will want to underline, bold, and put in italics some of your keywords but not the same keyword. So for this i suggest just bolding your main keyword in the middle of the article.

    Thanks

    Hey,

    Here is a little list I use for my onsite SEO:

    1. make sure the KW is in the URL
    2. Make sure the KW is in the Title tag
    3. Make sure the KW is in the meta desc, in sentence form
    4. make sure the KW is linked to from another source as anchor text
    5. make sure the saturation is around 2% - 4%
    6. link to this page from another page of your site using the KW as anchor text
    7. use the KW in as many different ways as grammatically possible
    I haven't really seen any benefit from bolding/underlining or using italics for KWs on the sites I have used them as test on, but if this is something you want to give a go it wont hurt.

    Hope this helps as a basic guide line

    i dont bother with a lot of onsite stuff now. although i had a bit of a revival recently after finding a few sites with major SEO visibility almost exclusively off onsite SEO.

    as long as you cover off the url, title, H1 and usage within the first 65 chars of the main body im normally happy with that.

    If you can reuse the term further down the page then great but dont force it.

    Now on Panda, just Bold the first paragraph where the keyword is and also bold the keyword at the end. If you want to interlink do it once per article, if possible OBL to real authority sites.

    I 2nd this advice. I haven't seen any benefit from meta description or tags but rather on subject title and first 1-2 sentence is key. I've never seen Google sending me traffic for keywords in the middle of the paragraph unless it is a whole phrase being searched.
