The Correct Way To Use Keywords
Plan your main text content using keyword phrase's and keywords a few times, include keyword phrase's and keywords in your link text and menu's use bold and italic on the keywords in your main text, this is what will tell Google that those words or phrase's are important and Google will place your site for those search queries. Choose your relevant keywords, you can also use our keyword tool to help you. The keyword tool tells you how many monthly searches are made for the keyword and gives keyword suggestions, no point in having keywords that only 10 people a month search for. Write the site's content based on these keywords. Create a title and description tag using the same keywords, making sure to put the most important keywords first in your title and description tags. I would suggest no more than 25 keywords to a page, use the topic of each page to add different keywords, try add your main keywords to a few pages on your site.
