How Many Keywords Does Google and Search Engines Want?
As a business solution provider I deal with a lot of various websites, hosting situations and blogging platforms and typically the first call to action I do is research the best meta data for the agent or client. There is no point showing up first for a keyword or phrase that's never searched for.
I have numerous new clients that constantly email me: "I am on the 5th page! Why?" But then I ask what they used as a search term and it's not anything that a client is actually searching for!
You want to be where your clients are!
How do you do that?
You either spend countless hours researching Google for what's actually searched for, spend hundreds on programs that do this for you, use Google's Keyword Tool, or use an SEO company to do this for you.
But the reality is, Google only likes about 5-8 keywords per page. They want your page to be specific in what it addresses and not just cover every possible hit that could be out there. You actually won't get that great of results if you have 50 keywords with such generic phrases as "real estate" , " house" , "Homes" , "foreclosures" and the like.
Google likes when you are more specific with your geo-targeted area such as "St George homes and properties". This shows Google that you are specific in your area and you are serious about your demographic.
What is your demographic?
Once you know this you can construct your blog and site around this focus. You don't want to lead stray Googlers aside in a tangent they never meant to go down. You want to focus on the people that will bring you the leads, the checks, the income to pay the bills. Isn't that what it's all about?
I think this falls into the insanity category with some major parentheses. You have to keep doing the same thing over and over to eventually see results. If you are pretty sure what you are doing is right then keep at it. SEO is not an overnight process and it is never a guarantee. No SEO company in the world can guarantee you #1 Organic Positioning. It's all best guess and best research.
So the "take-away" on this one is keep your keywords to a minimum but make sure they are specifically targeted for your audience and don't blanket your entire site with the same keywords. Each page should have it's own set to be focused on whatever the page is about.
Personal SEO stays on top of the Search Engine Algorithms so you can focus on real estate. We are a one (ok maybe 2) man band that is personal and works with you to find the best business solution for your current situation.
