Search engine ranking question

by 1 comments
Well, here we go:

I was doing some keyword research and added around 1k keywords to my site after doing some keyword research. I lost a lot of ranks now in google. From page 2 to 12 and much worse for the major keywords.

I think the reason could be that as I have more keywords, the relevance of every single one goes down.

Okay, let´s take this a little further:

If this assumption is right, the normal way to get traffic from the SEs would be:

Have 3-5 Major keywords (perhaps up to 10)

For every other not so relevant keyword but with less competition, build a suite and rank it separately ( faster and less expensive: Keyword optimized article with anchor keyword link).

This way you don´t lose relevance of your major keywords. Get a backlink to your main site.

Am I on the right path guys?

If so, any proven suggestions with how many main keywords I should have? Is 10 a riskless number or should it be 3-5 or even only 1! ? Is there a recommended ratio or a formula that contains the relation to the number of competition sites in the equation?

Thank you very much for your assistance,

    You are on the Right Path.

    Those other neat little keyword phrases you came up with...use them to create more pages.

    Stay within 4-5 keywords.

    btw - take those long tail keyword phrases and use that one phrase. Then create variations of that phrase to make the other 4 phrases.
