Will This Get Me Nailed? On-Page Whiz Kid Needed

I've got an ecommerce site and I'm trying to rank for 7 different keywords that are entirely different products.

However they are so similar in wording, I am worried google will see them as synonymous of eachother and choose to rank only 1 of them as it initializes SERP keyword canibalism.

KW's are:
Code:
"simpson steel lunch box"
"homer simpson steel lunch box"
"marge simpson steel lunch box"
"maggie simpson steel lunch box"
"bart simpson steel lunch box"
Would it be a stupid move to have individual product pages (each with 500 word unique product descriptions) to try and rank for all of these keywords individually?

Is google likely to just pick one and disregard ranking the rest due to the keyword similarity?

    You're fine given each is a unique phrase. To further distinguish each product as different, use the keyword again in the copy and link out to the wikipedia entry for homer, bart, marge, maggie etc.

    Google is giving significant weight to what you rank out to as an indicator for what keywords you are relevant.

    Also, don't interlink these pages.

    Cheers,

    Lane

    There's nothing wrong with those keywords having individual pages, they're all individual products. Traffic will not be interested in buying all 4 lunchboxes (single webpage).

    My advice is silo the category with the main keyword as simpson steel lunch box then use the rest of the keywords as supporting pages.

    • Simpson Steel Lunch Box
      • Homer Simpson Steel Lunch Box
      • Marge Simpson Steel Lunch Box
      • Maggie Simpson Steel Lunch Box
      • Bart Simpson Steel Lunch Box

    Having 5 similar internal pages isn't spammy, the products are all unique.

    If you pull this off correctly you should be able to get double SERP listing on at least one of the keyword phrases.

    If that's your real keyword you have it made (screenshot below), lol.

      I feel this is good advice but I'm not really following.

      I think I may get what you mean however, I was of the impression that even though products are seperate; since google acts algorithmically it isnt aware of that.

      Therefore these keywords are not unlike:

      Code:
      "how to get abs"
      "how to get abs fast"
      "how to get abs in two days"
      "ways to get abs"
      And I know for sure this would get you nailed if you tried making seperate internal pages for all the keywords individually.

      So I'm not sure how it differs to a robot just because a human knows its a completely different product?



      I was either going to no index category pages and make individual pages as OP states.

      Or index category page as "example.com/simpson-steel-lunch-box/"

      And de-optimize the products to "Homer" "Marge" "Lisa" to not trip OOP on the category page due to the 0 content it has.

      I lol'd at that picture. Thats the power of parasite seo right there and no competition. Thats isnt my actualy keyword though, or else I might as while link to my site from the OP

        Your being a bit paranoid towards the SERPs.

        Those example keywords on individual pages are how double/triple SERPs work for a single search query. You can expand the page titles a little & still target the same keyword phrases. If needed add an extra keyword to the beginning or end of the page title to look less obvious.

        The category page is whatever you make it, If you want unique content, add unique content.

    Here's the advice I give to people who have "will this get me in trouble with google" questions. If SEO didn't exist, what would you do to your site? Don't build your site around whether or not Google will penalize you (which rarely happens btw). In this case, you're talking about products. It makes sense for each separate product to have it's own page, so why not do it? Focus on usability and creating a good experience for your users and you don't have to worry about whether or not Google will "reward" or "punish" you.
