How Important Are Keywords – Let’s Investigate?
Are keywords really all that important when writing content? This subject needs to be addressed for those starting out in the Affiliate Marketing niche.
Lately I have been reading things being put out around the internet on articles from bloggers that keywords are dead when it comes to writing content.
When searchers are looking for something they are still going to enter keywords regardless of spoken or typed text. Keywords will always be used no matter what anyone out there tells you.
The best recourse that I can think of is just because you read it on the internet then it has to be true! Right? For me I will stick with what has been a proven method by highly experienced marketers.
How to Use Keywords and Phrases
Here is a question I have seen quite frequently: “How and why are keywords and phrases important to content?” To answer that question they are not only important; without them, you are going nowhere.
In my Jaaxy Review and How Keywords Fit into QSR and SEO, the explanations were given in how to find your keywords or keyword phrases. And why these numbers matter when picking a niche and writing content.
But exactly how many times during the writing of your content should the keywords appear? A keyword should always be in the title of your page or post and used at least one time in the first paragraph of your content.
Additional keywords and phrases should be and can be used throughout the rest of your content in pages or posts. By additional this means related keywords to your main keyword that your content is written for.
Will the Use for Keywords Diminish
Keywords will always be required for content published to the internet in any form. What people enter into the search box on all the search engines Google, Bing, and Yahoo makes it necessary for keyword usage now and forever.
Think about when you are looking for something, most people head to Google, Bing, and Yahoo to find what they are looking for whether it be a store, book, shoes, pizza shop, etc.
All these words are tracked by the search engines noting how many people are searching for which particular word. So if your keyword is “movies” and you do not select a specific title for a movie you are going to end up with an advertisement for the most popular movies this week.
Next on the list will most likely be what is playing at the local movie theaters, or so you would think.
If you do not research keywords for how many people are searching for that word then shame on you, because this is one of the most important success keys for your website.
Long-tailed keywords are gaining popularity with more than one word being the keyword in a phrase, or words which describe the actual keyword to make it more appealing and grammatically correct.
Example of this would be: “Movies” a single keyword which I gave you the results for verses “Batman Movie playing locally”. With this search Google, Bing, and Yahoo could then return only the movie theaters in your area playing that particular movie.
Your niche could be a long-tailed keyword giving your more flexibility on search engines when people are searching for different things shall we say: “What is the Best Orange Juice for a Diabetic”.
Using Long-tailed Keywords is more specific to what people might be searching for giving you a small edge on your competition for the same keyword.
Importance of Keywords
If you took the time to read my previously mentioned posts; then I am sure you do realize the importance of keywords for your content for indexing and rankings with Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

Off the subject somewhat, starting out as a beginner to building websites to promote affiliate marketing I never would have even considered that keywords were something I would need to research to become successful.
