10 Tips For Using Keywords In Your Articles

There is a right way and a wrong way to use keywords in your submissions: Use them correctly, and you can help your site rank highly for your keyword terms. Use them incorrectly, and you could hurt your cause.

But don't be afraid-You do not have to have to be a SEO guru to use keywords successfully in your articles.

Here are 10 essential tips for using keywords correctly in your article submissions:

#1 Variety is key-don't use the same keyword all the time.

#2 Develop a list of 20 or more keyword phrases to work from.

#3 Don't go overboard on the keywords-a good percentage to stick to is 3%, but keep in mind that individual publishers will have their own limits.

#4 You can use semantically related versions of your keywords-it does not have to be the exact keyword repeated over and over again. For example: race cars, racing cars, race car gear, how to race a car, etc.

#5 Update your keyword list regularly. Every few months conduct your keyword research again, and be sure that your keywords are still current.

#6 Long tail keywords are great as article topics.

Long tail keywords are 3-5 words long and are very specific, while your core keywords are 1-2 words long and are more general. Long tail keywords tend to be less competitive, so it can be easier to rank highly for them. Research your best long tail keywords and try to write articles around those very specific topics.

For example, if your long tail phrase is 'long distance running shoes', you could write an article about how to shop for long distance running shoes. Do this for all of your long tail keywords to create blanket coverage for all aspects of your niche.

#7 Use keywords in your title, when appropriate.

Your title needs to describe what your article is about, so you can only use your keywords in your title when the article is also about the keywords. For example, if your keywords were "chocolate recipes", and your article was a review of various baking pans, it would not be appropriate to include those keywords in your title, because that's not what the article is about. In order to include the keywords "chocolate recipes" in your title, your article would need to be about chocolate recipes.

#8 Your resource box is a prime spot for using your keywords, but you need to be careful. In an HTML resource box do not hyperlink the same keywords every time-switch things up!

#9 If you will simply write on the topic of your website, then your keywords will likely naturally pop up in the article.

#10 Don't forget about your article summary (aka, the short description). Article summaries will often appear in search engine results, so that's a great spot to use your keywords.

A keyword rich article does not have to sound awkward-if you use your keywords correctly, no one will be able to tell that you're targeting certain keywords. They'll just think that you've written a helpful article.

Using keywords in your articles is not hard, but you do have to be careful to focus on quality and readability, and exercise some restraint. If you follow these 10 tips, you will create keyword rich articles that are a pleasure to read and are easy to write.
