When to target next keyword?

3 replies
In the last few days I have started to get some recognition by the search engines for my site key word, top affiliate programs. Google 12, Yahoo 27, Bing 38. I was wondering how long I should wait before I start targeting a more competitive keyword phrase? Should I consolidate for a while or just get on with it?

Cheers, Chris

    If I were you, I would work on the keyword "top affiliate programs", simply because Google 12 doesn't mean anything, I have a website ranked #8 for competitive term but ranking #8 is nothing more than 3% of potential visitors!
    You better think about more competitive keyword after being #4 for the keyword "top affiliate programs" - I think you are targeting this keyword, and I have no idea about this keyword (monthly search count, competitiveness etc.).

    start small, get traffic rolling in, then work on the harder to get keywords..

    eg~4 word keyword phrases
    then 3
    then 2
    so on..
    makes you look like a authority being so broad in your keyword leading to your website.

      You could start targeting more keywords now. It all really depends on how much time you have for promotion. If you have time to promote a couple more go for it.

      Once you've reached your targeted position for a keyword, add in another one.
