The King of Getting SEO is Longtail Keywords
So how to find longtail keywords free is something most of us want to know about.
They are how people find us at all. The search engines recognize them, then when a person with a problem or question searches our topic, our post comes up with a solution for them.
Kyle teaches us at Wealthy Affiliate about how to find long-tail keywords free…he calls them the low-hanging fruit. I love that! Can’t you just picture that??
Where Do You Put This Fruit?
I put them in my title and in my first paragraph. And then a number of times, naturally, throughout my post.
I write all the great content I can come up with to engage my reader that I understand their problem, that I have a solution for them and all the benefits that solution has for them.
All followed by a good call to action.
You’ll also find my keywords in my meta description to help folks find my post.
The Result So Far????
Traffic is growing…I have at this writing a blog that is just under half a year old. I know that it takes time to generate a good traffic flow.
I also know that I am doing exactly what the people who have been, and continue to be successful, in this business are doing. Learning how to find longtail keywords free is part of it.
Keyword Density is Part of SEO
I experiment with density for my keywords. I used to check with Kesor to see what they say about my density. No longer!
You see with Squirrly, I can find my longtail keywords…Jaaxy is a good tool to use in conjunction with Squirrly, especially if you have the free version…the free version limits your keyword searches a bit, so using Jaaxy too can help to get those keywords that are
- a- searched for a lot
- b- lack much competition
- c- therefore, easier to rank
I didn’t find Squirrly until I had been working on my blog for about 4 months…I needed to go back and rework every one of my past posts, as well as use it for new ones.
I am hoping this reaches some newbies in the internet business to help them on their way.
If you’re a part of Wealthy Affiliate, then you get a free version of Jaaxy, and that’s a good thing.
The FREE keyword density tool http://kesor.net/keyword-density helps to make sure your keyword density is okay…you want to aim between 3-6%. The challenge with Kesor is that it helps with keywords that are only 1-3 words long…in most cases the best longtail keywords are a lot longer than that! So it has its uses, but they are limited.
With Squirrly, you get to find your keyword that has an attractive search and competitive sweet spot, write and watch Squirrly guide you into proper density, and where your keywords need to appear for best SEO.
Try it for one of your posts…it’s free!
You may become as addicted to using Squirrly as I am.
What Density Works Best?
The experts are all over the place on this…from keywords don’t matter at all ….to they should be 20% of your content. Knowing how to find longtail keywords- free- helps to have the exact density to help folks find your post.
Most seem to say 2-6%, with an average of 3% or so.
I find that 30-35 or so uses makes for about 3% density in a 1000-1200 word post.
30-35? How can I make that fit naturally into my content, without looking like artificial keyword stuffing.
I use some prime real estate in addition to my content. I put the keywords in the alt description of my images, and even in captions on the images. They all count.
Has anyone come up with other ways to increase keyword density while keeping the content relevant and captivating? The internet gurus tell us to use our real estate well. Squirrly even guides that use.
Squirrly also tells when you are over- or under-optimized. It guides as you write! It’s a pretty empowering tool. Check it out.
