KeyWord Research – What Are Your Prospects Looking For?

Keywords are the foundation of SEO. Keywords are the exact terms consumers are using to find what they are searching for. Single keywords are too broad of a search term for local searches. Three to Five words together are known as “long tail keyword phrases” are more powerful for local searches since they usually include a geographic identifier. These are usually used for very specific searches and have higher conversions.

Optimizing your website with long tail keywords is very important. By placing 4 to 6 long tail keywords in your website’s code and in the page titles can help your websites ranking. An example of a single keyword would be the term “marketing”. An example of a long tail keyword would be “Social Media Marketing Pittsburgh PA”. As you can tell someone using the single keyword is looking for general information on marketing.  The person using the long tail keyword phrase is going to find specific results for the social media marketing agencies in Pittsburgh PA.
