SEO and Content

Fred of Wealthy Affiliate posted a blog today and talked about SEO and Content.

“You need to have 2 to 4.5% of keyword density.  Your title should be your keywords,” blogged Fred.

He said that:

  • keywords should be in your meta description.
  • keywords should be in your meta keyword field.
  • you should use keywords as your permalink.
  • your content needs to have two images and one of them should have a keyword tag.
  • you need to have your keyword in your first paragraph, as least once.
  • content has, at least, have a minimum of 250 words.
  • your content needs 6 bold elements and 1 bold keywords
  • your content needs one italic keyword

 

Comment:  Let me explain to you some of the terms.

Keyword Density – If you have 100 words in your content.   A keyword density of 2% means you have 2 keywords for every hundred words.

Meta Tag, Meta Description.   When you click on all posts or all pages, you will see something look like this.

SEO

Meta Tag = SEO Title, Meta Description = SEO Description.

Permalink – As shown below.

permalink

The is the URL of the post.  If someone type in Google searches

I only agreed with some of the things that he said.  The ones that I don’t agree with is:

  • keywords should be in your meta description.
  • keywords should be in your meta keyword field.
  • your content needs to have two images and one of them should have a keyword tag.
  • your content needs 6 bold elements and 1 bold keywords
  • your content needs one italic keyword




Let me explain it.  If you have “All in One SEO Plugin”, you don’t need to fill in the keywords yourself.  The plugin will take care of it for you automatically.  He wasn’t totally wrong, but it is easier to install “All in One SEO plugin” and you don’t have to fill in every one of those fields.  It would be lots of work if you have many pages and posts.

It is good to have some images on your web page, and a good practice to enter the tag as your keyword.  They serve no purpose in your ranking.  Also, the bold and italic elements are not necessary.  He is not totally wrong either, they do work in the past but not anymore.

The keyword density of 2 to 4.5% is not necessary.  It is most important to have an article which is engaging and also more words will be better.  The longer your article, normally it will be easier to get a better ranking.

Content is king and it is the most important element of a successful.  You need to gain trust with the visitors using your content.  Then trust will build relationship and relationship will bring you sales.  So learn to write good quality contents.
