Being knowledgeable in SEO strategies is important for all content writers to be familiar with. One of these strategies is using keywords that are naturally woven into your blog. But, if you’re an entry level writer then how do you know what keywords to use?
The best method that I have discovered is to first, think about what keywords your reader would be looking for. Begin with a broad search and then try to think of words to narrow the search. For example if you running a new website for a local juice bar, your keywords might not only include the obvious keywords but also the zip code and area that you are located in. This way your site may come up higher when users are looking a juice bar in a specific area.
You also can try searching for these words in google. As you are researching words that you think will be good to use, you can scroll all the down at the bottom of the search screen and see the “searches related to” section. This will also give you an idea of some other keywords to input as well.
Remember not to overuse the keyword and to naturally weave into your blog. I usually write the blog first the way I want it and then look for areas where I could naturally add the keywords there.
Do any of you other bloggers reading this have any helpful tips when it comes to deciding which keywords should be used?
