Keyword Optimization is a great way to get views to your articles. In this guide I’m going to teach you effective ways to get your articles higher in the search engines.
If you’re one of the many thousands of struggling, 10-cent-a-day Triond writers, the problem probably isn’t your writing. In fact, there are many talented writers on Triond who have the potential to break out and become famous. So why aren’t you getting any views?
The answer? You haven’t optimized your article with rich and valuable keywords.
In my previous article, Get More Views on Triond Now! – How to Get Views on Triond, I mentioned briefly the importance of “Long Tail Keywords”, and although using Long Tail keywords can get you a few views or so, you have to go much farther than that. It not only takes relevant keywords, but the right kind of keywords that work perfectly for your article.
Choosing the right Keywords (or Tags) can be the difference between one hundred views every day and none at all. Keywords are what Google and many other search engines use to find your article. If you don’t choose the right keywords, your writing won’t experience much commercial success!
When coming up with Keywords, it’s important that you go for “Long Tail” keywords instead of “Simple” keywords.
For example, let’s say you write an article about how to lose weight through dieting.
A series of “Simple” Keywords would look something like this:
While these keywords are relevant to your article, you will be competing with way too many articles and websites. As you can see from above, by having the keyword “lose weight” you’ll be competing with 102,000,000 other websites and articles! That right there is a losing battle.
On the other hand, writing “Long Tail” Keywords would provide much more success:
Having these Long Tail Keywords decreases your competition by a HUGE percentage. Using the keyphrase “can dieting help you lose weight” instead of the keyword “dieting” reduces your competition from 51,800,000 to 3!
I’ve recently discovered this amazing tool from Google called Google Keyword Tool. With this tool you’ll not only get a list of great keywords to use for your article, but you’ll also get keywords that people are actually searching for, along with other helpful data!
When using this tool, simply enter the topic your article is about. So if you have an article about losing weight, type in “losing weight”. After that, you’ll receive a list of keywords along with a few other attributes. Below is a definition of all these attributes.
Competition refers to the users competition when he/she purchases a Google Ad. If the competition is High, the user will have a harder time advertising their website, and if the competition is low, they will have an easier time, but will have a lower traffic experience. This attribute does NOT apply to actual competition among other content competitors, so you can simply ignore this.
However, if you have Google Adsense integrated on your Triond account, consider using the High Competition keywords. You’ll receive a higher pay than low competition keywords, but it’ll be harder for your article to get found.
Global Monthly Searches refers to the keyword’s total searches every month on a global scale.
Local Monthly Searches refers to the keyword’s total searches every month on locally.
Approximate CPC refers to the Cost-Per-Click for Google Advertisers. Use High CPC Keywords if you have Google Adsense integrated on your Triond account.
When you have your batch of valuable keywords, don’t just leave it at that. Go back to your article and make your article Keyword-Rich! Use these keywords in your paragraphs and you’ll see targeted traffic coming to you.
The reason for this is because of how search engines work. They search by keywords given to the article, but they also search according to how relevant your article is to the search term. This to avoid people giving Gaming Articles Health-related keywords and finding undeserved traffic.
So what do you do? Use it! Use your Keyphrases all over your article so the search engine can get a clue and say: “Wow, this article is REALLY relevant to this person. I’ll make this article the #1 search result for this keyword!”
For example, if your keyword was “losing weight through dieting”, your article could look something like this:
….Losing weight through dieting can be tough, but with this guide you will find yourself shaving off those extra pounds in days!
First, if you want to lose weight through dieting, you have to be committed to yourself and to your dream body. You cannot eat junk food after junk food expecting results – you have to eat clean! Losing weight through dieting can be easy if you surround yourself with delicious whole foods instead of junk food, and eating at home instead of out at a restaurant.
If you really want to lose weight through dieting however, probably the most important tool is a support group. Find a friend to help discipline yourself from snacking too much and crashing your diet, or find other people who have also lost weight through dieting. You’ll discover great tips and tricks to keeping yourself full and satisfied….
In the above paragraph I have bolded every time I used my keyword (there are deviations but search engines keep note of this). You HAVE to use your keywords in order for google to deem your keywords relevant and valid. Otherwise Google and other search engines will deny your plea and push you farther and farther down the search results.
With these tips you should experience an increase in your articles views. Remember that keywords help Google find your articles, so give Google a little help and navigate that traffic to you!
