SEO Essentials

1. Keyword Essentials:

The best keywords are 2-4 word phrases that describe what your business does. By using a common language that users are likely to type in, you increase your chances of being searched. If your keywords are too general then they’ll likely be too competitive. If your keywords are too specific then few people will search for your terms and you’ll get fewer potential visitors.
Common mistakes in selection of search terms include targeting:

· Terms which are unpopular
· Highly-competitive terms which you can’t hope to rank well for
