Key Word Research With Keith and Jennifer
At around 1:30 AM this morning me and my good friend Jennifer Salhi did our first practice run with Google Hang Outs and we discussed key word research when it comes to content marketing for your business. Since both Jen and I are in the business of marketing and making money online, we are going to include a free pdf with key words on making money online for anybody that watches the recorded live hang out. I wanted to do this post to explain to you how to properly place key words in your blogs, and on your website so you dont get knocked for key word spam. Yes even using too many key words can get you slapped by Google for Key word spam.
What is Key Word Spam? Well its when you use one key word or key word phrase multiple times when it dosent make sense as far as the reading flow of the article. Its also when you over utlize a key word and key word phrase. Now why search engines have never gave us the magic number of what is too much. There have been tests and studies done, and we can give you a number of how many times. The average use of a key word and or key word phrase should be used at least 3 times and no more then 6. We have seen this work very well for ours and other peoples websites.
Where To Place Key Words In Content
Here is a bit of SEO information for you. When your using your keywords be sure to place them in the following places, if you can.
Descrption - Depending on what blog program you are using, this is usually the first 160 charactors of text in the first paragraph if your article. However try not to use it in the first two words.
Headings - Make when you are writing you do your content in a break down of 3 Headlines or sub subjects of the main article. Use your key words in those subject headlines.
Actual Post - The main part of you article is where you will want to drop your key word and key word phrases at least 3 to 6 times. You can go up to 8 but if you do this, use it towards the end of the post. Try to space them out as much as you can.
If you utlize this you will notice your ogranic traffic increase to your online content steadily.

Why Cant I Get Enough Traffic To My Website?
Their are many reasons why your not getting the traffic you want to your website. One of the major reasons is that you were either not trained properly or you are lacking the drive to do what you need to do, to build your core traffic to your website. Building core traffic to your site is crucial to any online businesses success. You have to get 100's to thousands of views on your site inorder to make any money or gather leads for your business.
To get that many views you have to plant the seed. You see online marketing is more like a plant then a web any more. Making sure you have enough back links, syndication, technical knowledge, is the key to planting the seeds to make your website grow. This is why we are sharing a friends 1st Part article on Core Traffic Strategies. We hope you see the value in this content as much as we did.
Core Traffic Strategies - Day 1
Welcome to the first day of core traffic strategies which if followed without fail will bring traffic to your website or blog. The first thing you are going to do is relax and grab a coffee or get some snack as I was very hard on everyone yesterday and those who know me were quite taken aback as some of my friends wrote me hey saurabh what happened to you? Did you lose your pajamas? Ok I did not lose my pajamas and will return to my normal self. Yesterday’s article was just a jolt to those who think that you can create a magic button which will make you rich overnight. There is no magic button but you can create your own magic buttons which will be bringing you traffic from all directions. Ok some people have surely woken up and before I start the practical stuff. I want to tell you do not be serious ever in life from outside. Try to laugh at things. I am telling you this from my personal experience. You will ask me d how does it effects attracting traffic. Let me answer you it will effect you a lot because you become so magnetic when you began to laugh and enjoy life. People began to like you and people is traffic.
So here is the first very important part of the core strategy.
Now if you or either of you who have fallen from your chair. Sorry but I had to do it. As this is the most important thing to attract traffic. I know you are shaking you head you are saying it must be crazy to blog daily and you cannot blog daily. Some of you might not have a blog at all. And somebody will say what is the advantage of blogging on Sunday. Who will read your blogs.
Let me answer to all those questions above. Firstly if you do not have a blog make one today. For all those who think they have nothing to say today then write a blog about what is there that is making you say nothing about today. Those who are finding it hard to blog on Sundays can write why it is hard to blog on Sundays. I do not care where you are and whatever you are doing the first core strategy is going to be that you are going to blog daily from now on.
Why to blog daily?
You know google love content. It has finally discovered a year before that it is just a search engine and its main job is to provide information. The more information and original information (we will talk about that later) you are adding to your website and the best way to do is through a blog the more google’s crawler will visit your website and you can see it visiting your website if you are using livezilla or have installed visitors tracking.
So what does it have to do with google’s visit?
Everything my friend. If you can make google come to visit your website everyday you create reputation. And good reputation is the key to bring good traffic.
Make blogging a habit like brushing your teeth or taking bath I know some of the computer guys are not regular even in doing that but you know what I mean.
How much should I write?
Your articles should be around (500-700) words). Do not look at me as some animal out of zoo. I know what I am saying and you committed in following me for at least 30 days.
What should I write about?
About your website’s main topic. Think about your keywords it does not matter what they are and revolve your article around it. Think of the why’s and how’s.
Hey what I do when No ideas is coming?
I know there will be times when no idea will come to your head it is when you have written so many articles that your mind says I have written it all. Let me give you an idea but do not use it too often and that is use the content you find interesting like a video and give your comments on it. Google will love you if is a youtube video. This will be called as you are referring an outer source but writing your comments in your own words makes it your article. But do not do this more as it is you whose reputation has to be established.
What if still my mind is blank?
Go and read something the internet is a very large place and you will find lot of content on the web on almost any topic that you are searching for. You can also watch videos and listen to audio. So search for proper ideas and try to look at it from your point of view. It does not mean that you can just simply copy paste it. Google recognizes duplicate content so instead of rewarding you it will punish you by bringing down your website’s ranking and ultimately kicking you out of its index. So never do that.
Do not forget about authorship?
Whenever you are writing a blog please make sure that you have established your authorship with googleplus. As you began to write more and more articles your authorship will be established and people will began to look at you as an authority in your field.
Ok I have written an article of more than 600 words is my job finished now?
Congratulation I knew you could do that. You have to do this everyday. As per as your job being done there is one thing more that you have to do submit your blog to the blog search engines and websites I have already mentioned in one of my previous blog
.Where are the tools? You said something about the tools?
I know many people will like to have a tool help them write a blog everyday. And I am going to talk about tools only after you have finished your training for the first ten days. When you have done what all that I have told.
I want you to go thought the process first. When I wanted to learn HTML do you know what I did. I did not do it in Dreamweaver so that It can create much of the code for me but I started typing in notepad. Not only did it make me learn HTML but it made me very good at it. I will tell you about tools so that you can speed many of the tasks and it will also make you very fast but at the end of the 10 days or if you minus today 9 days session.
So all my friends out there I want you to be successful. Google ranks all those websites well who have high reputation. You cannot control google’s ranking but you can build your reputation through your blogs. So the first core strategy for traffic is Blog daily. Write it somewhere so you do not forget it. Let us see tomorrow which core traffic strategies is going it to be for the 2nd day. You have already started working and I am so glad.

Learn What Google Take Is On Guest Blogging
We watched a video that was posted by Google Engineer Matt Cutts on how Google looks at sites with guest bloggers to get more links to their sites. It always goes back to quality and uniqueness. If you know lets say Joe Taylor who is a great authoritive expert on building houses, and your blog is on houses then you should feel very welcomed to have him on your blog writing a post for your readers.
You still want to make sure that the content on your site is going to be something that gives value to your readers. You do not want to take this form of content marketing to an extreme which Matt says it can happen and that Google will eventually let you know that your quality is dropping. So why many MLM, Network Marketers and Content Marketers will say guest blogging to get your site more links will help your business take off, however if you do too much of it and if it dosent match your niche or give your readers extra value you could be introuble.
We hope this cleared things up for you as it did for us. Content will always be king and Google is looking for sites that give readers a great experience for what they are looking for in there searches. We will be searching for more authoritive information on SEO and SMO for you so you dont just have to take our word from it but from the people that actually create the rules.
