Ezine Articles Keyword Box - How To Pick Keywords?

by 3 comments
I've been submitting articles on ezinearticles for a few months now (I've got 130 on there and have made about $1700 in sales, so I'm pretty happy about that )

However, one thing I have never understood is the "keyword" box that appears when you submit an article. Are the keywords I type in there meant to be ones that people browsing the article directory would type in (ie "dog training" etc)

Or should I put my long-tail phrases in the keyword box?

Also, do the keywords you put in the box have any effect on where your article appears in Google?

Any advice appreciated,

      The keywords wind up in the meta tags for your article. I'm not sure Google pays much attention to them, but some of the other search engines might. I just use the keywords that I'm targetting in the article itself.

    So I am fairly new to CPA marketing and have developed my first campaign, I get a $1 for every lead and current campaign converting at about 11%. Using Bing ads I am paying around .05c per click and target close to 3000 words. Because I am bidding so low for keywords I only get about 20 clicks per, but I am try to make up with volume and research new low cost keywords. Traffic is driven direct to a landing page and then to the offer. At first I was capturing emails and then directed to the offer but found conversions even lower, also for this campaign I have no real interest is staying in contact with the people who sign up to the offer.

    I'm really good at turning over content quick; what slows me down is research and also bidding on projects. I've read that Textbroker is far superior to iWriter in terms of number of jobs and approval rate (apparently the later is marketed to content buyers in a way that creates really high expectations and high rejection rates as a result). Is there any true competitor to Textbroker in terms of job volume? I've heard Constant Content is also good, a bit less on the volume but much higher paying.
