A lot of folks out there believe that there is a secret number of times you should mention a keyword phrase in order to rank well in the SERPS.
Here’s the thing though, search engines have evolved and are much smarter now. They don’t need you to mention the same keyword phrase a specific number of times to “get it” and index it. You need to concentrate on RELEVANT keywords as well.
If you want to do it right, here are a few tips:
- Include your keyword phrase in the page title, description, H1 tag and as many time as you NEED to mention it.
- Add the page text summary (or introduction) in the very beginning of the web page mentioning your key phrase.
- Use only grammatically correct phrases. If your keyword was “Dallas Pizza” you could write out a sentence such as “Dallas has the best pizza.” The two words are still picked up by the crawlers.
- Add the page text outline (or introduction) in the start of the Internet page discussing your key phrase.
- Confirm your page is “scannable” the visitor will straight away get a concept what it is about ( add bold fonts, lists and news).
And yes, you need to use your key phrase ( or related terms ) in reports and bolded text ( so that both folk and bots could quickly associate the page with them ).
