May 6, 2009 – “Quality SEO Services” is a keyword that is searched 9 times per hour.  A small amount compared to its cousin, “SEO Services”, which is searched every on the internet every 3 seconds but a more powerful keyword in terms of conversions for an SEO company.

The question in mind is what defines “Quality SEO Services” compared to just plain old “SEO Services”.

Let’s begin with a quick historical background on SEO.  SEO is a semi-new marketing term that became popular in the mid 1990s when search engines began to catalogue websites.

During that era, a webmaster only had to submit their website and a spider from that search engine would begin to catalog their website according to their meta tags and text content.

March 7, 2009 - Now that you know how to use your SEO Keyword meta tags, let’s discuss how to put those tags to use by writing an SEO Keyword article. It’s not as easy as you might think.


The first step is to identify which SEO keywords will be used in the article. Remember, the SEO keywords you select should have something to do with the page that you are using them on. It doesn’t make sense to have “wedding cakes” as an SEO keyword if you own a baseball card website.


Next, write out a rough draft of the article. Don’t worry about using all the keywords for now.


After you are done with your rough draft, edit your SEO Keyword article and try to add more keywords, but make sure that the placement makes sense. Remember, your website viewers are going to be reading your content, so don’t just fill a page with nothing but keywords.

 

February 14, 2009 - In our first two SEO Keyword articles, we discussed how to determine a website’s SEO Keyword competition as well as combining a website’s content with Meta Tags. Here we’ll explore how to choose the correct SEO Keywords for your website.

Keep in mind that this isn’t necessarily a guide on how to choose specific keywords for specific pages. That would fall into the previous article. Instead, this article will help you what SEO keywords are best suited for your website as a whole.

The first step is to identify which SEO Keywords are being searched for on the search engines. There are many websites that can help you identify the frequency of words being searched. Those sites will also give you similar keywords that are also being searched at a high rate.

For example, let’s say that you had a website about wedding flowers. While the SEO Keyword “wedding flowers” is obviously going to be your main focus, you would also want to use “wedding bouquet”, “bridal flowers” and “flowers for wedding.”

February 28, 2009 - In our last SEO Keyword article, we discussed how to choose the correct keywords for your website. Here, we’ll explain how to get the most out of your Meta Tags with respect to the Title Tag and the Description Tag.

First, we’ll go over the Meta Title Tag. Many consider the Title Tag the most important meta tag, because not only do most search engines utilize it, but the contents appear on the first line of most search engines.

The Title Tag should be short, roughly 64 to 80 characters, and should describe what the page is going to be about. Also, you should include the page’s main keyword in the title, preferably towards the beginning and ideally have another SEO keyword as well.

For example, our website www.BlindMonkeyMedia.com has the following Meta Title: “Online Marketing Services: BlindMonkeyMedia, Internet Marketing Consultants”. This title is not only keyword rich, but it also clearly explains what the website is all about.

February 2, 2009 - Using Meta Tags correctly is vital to achieving top ranking on SEO keywords. Having good content is another essential ingredient for high SEO keyword rankings. However, using both your content and meta tags combined correctly is a sure-fire way to achieve the top rankings you desire.


For the purpose of this article, we will focus on the meta tag “keywords”, although it must be noted that the meta tag “description” is also very important.


The SEO keywords you use in your meta tag should be used frequently throughout the content of the same webpage. For example, if you own a pizza website, and your main keyword is “pizza”, then you had better have the word “pizza” listed several times in your content.
