Hi Warriors, its me again

I have question for you.

Im starting new blog (amazon affilate reviews).

So question is : How many keywords is recomanded to "ättack"

I think that i will mix product reviews,helpful tips in niche, so is it better to take keywords like " sony playstation 4" or best gaming console for your child.
How many keywords i should ättack,and is it clever to doing backlinks for generic keywords like "best gaming console for your child' ,or to attack precise products names.

Thanks

    Do you mean for SEO or PPC? SEO I would recommend at last five, but for PPC you can go after a lot. Figure out which ones are profitable and then eliminate the others.

    1-2 is ideal actually, and you'll want to make sure that you make it look as natural as possible...a feat many marketers still cannot accomplish. haha

    5? I doubt that very much, you'll look like you're stuffing and I doubt that the article will flow well. Both humans and bots will take one look at it and be like, "no thanks".

    Thats my question: What to do. To target for seo or ppc.Because i will make some kind of 1/2 amazon store and 1/2 fresh unique seo optimised articles.
    Dont know what to do, to take 1-2-3 keywords (how much searches per month is lowest?),or to take more keywords(you know how wordpress optimised every title of every post).
    And for example, what to put on YOAST plugin?Only 1,2,3 keywords and other can be just in title?

    My recommendation is to select 1-2 main keywords, and depending on that 7-8 supportive keywords. This whole will help you to get good ranking in Search Engines also.

    You have to use only one focus keyword per post and optimize the post for it. If you have 5 keywords, write 5 posts. For each focus keyword, find secondary LSI keywords and use them.

    Prior to that you have to do your research and see the nb of searches and competiotin for each of them.

    I hope this helps.

    Personally with keywords I choose one per page/post as any more can be confusing as to purpose/value of page to users... However those tend to be the root keyword... with long tails or variations as composites to mix it up as you do not want to over do it on keyword density...

    When I create a blog (S.E.O.), I use pages for like the main product review and use posts for articles on various topics. When it comes to doing keyword research, it's difficult to give you an exact number because keyword research tools aren't totally accurate (usually a month or so behind). They are to only be used as a guideline. You also have to consider that you won't capture all the traffic for a keyword -- even if you're ranked number l.

    I don't really use keyword research tools, but if I were going to, I'd aim to get raked for a lower-competition, long-tail keyword that's similar to the main keyword I want to get ranked for -- especially if there's lot of competition. This way, the search engines will see that if you get ranked for similar, long-tail keywords, your site must also be related to [whatever topic your blog is about].

    It's also important that you write naturally. Don't keyword stuff and use the same words and phrases over and over. Use a thesaurus if you have to. When you're done writing the article, you also shouldn't link to the same text over and over. Mix things up. I hope this made some sense and helped a bit.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    Thanks all for great feedback.
    Lets see some stuff:
    My site will be made in wordpress, and i will instal seo yoast plugin (seo plugin-your right hand), im planning to put 1-3 main keyword.
    Do you agree to create (static) PAGE for this 1-3 keywords?
    Second thing is : Im planing to put more keywords but only as POST TITLE, what means that i will only post to my site to update content,but that articles will be also optimised for simmilar but not the same keyword phrase.

    Im not decide yet is it better to take keyword like " Best vacum cleaners" or ztx panasonic 242 (vacum cleaner) ?

    Thank you all again!

    Best regards

      In wordpress, h1 tags is the post title by default. - once your post have a title, you already have h1 tag.

      Thus in content, I would not recommend you to use h1 tags. It is better to start with h2,h3. Use it wisely.

    First of all you should worry about what structure you will give to your blog ? For example it will be silo or no? You will review many products? Are those products in the same niche? My advice is to write blog posts about a single product and target 2 brand keywords ( with product name ) and few long tails . Be sure you analyze competition and also write a post for your eventual customers and not for SE. I hope it helped.

      Yes i will review many products in same niche, same brand.

      Example:

      If i write one article about braun electric shaver 2323-G , should i put that in H1 tag?
      Next article is about Philips shaver 3535-S and my H1 tag is Philips shaver 3535-S.

      Is that ok?
      One H1 tag per post?

      And i will try to rank maximum 5 post with my keywords.

    I recommend you should select about 1-2 main keywords, so that hit the target people. This would help you to rank higher in Search engines

    I think focusing on fixed amount of keywords is a bad idea, it will raise a red flag quite fast. You should split your project into 2, one for main phrases the second one for Long Tail. I never limit myself I am working on hundreds of keyphrases on each project. Everything must looks as natural as possible to avoid penalization.

      After so many of readed articles on SEO-in, I was even more confused.

      I want to ask you about the issues and to finish this endless SEO circle successfully.

      1 Does my main key word should be the phrase "best digital safes"?

      2 Does the phrase should be inserted at my homepage?

      3 What about category page ? Is it smart to put something simmilar to my main keyword "best titanium digital safes"?

      4 And is it smart to write post with excat same name of product like. "Range max 23 fire resistant " ?

      5How much keywords i should pick per niche website?How many searches per month per my main keyword?

      6. where to put my main keyword? On homepage,post...?

      Thats it.
      Thanks

    1. Go for easier keywords with lower competition, so you can rank faster and better.

    2. Write your articles based on your keywords.

    3. When you rank the "small" ones, your blog will start getting some authority so it will be easier to rank for more competitive keywords.

    4. Keyword research first. Do not work hard for something no one's looking for.

    5. Rinse and repeat.

    6. Enjoy your $$$

    Most people will search a specific game or console, rather than a generic keyword/term. For instance, a parent who's child wants a specific PS3 game will go online to find sites that sell that. I'm not saying you can actually rank for specific product names as you will have so much competition with Amazon pages for that same term. So maybe a more generic term is your better choice if you just want some traffic. Though specific keywords are always better to target, if not harder to get ranked for (if you are a new site).
