If you have a list of 10 keywords all closely related and you are doing article blogging, can you use those 10 keywords in the same article or do you need 10 separate articles even though they are closely related?

example, list includes, best bike for women, best bike for girls, best bike for men, best bike for boys, etc

    Well, You can do any of them, but the question is how will you focus on 10 keywords in one article.

    Those keywords are all unique enough for their own individual articles. Consider approaching them from a top 10 style and do a unique article for each one.

    keywords like "best bike for women and best bike for girls" should be used in one article because girls and woman are semantic keywords.
    The same way other article should include keywords like " best bike for men, best bike for boys, etc"

  • The best is if you could create separate unique article for each keyword and repeat that keyword and similar ones many times in that article. Of course, the more unique articles you can create the better.

    I wouldn't use all of the keywords in one article .What I would do is pick search the main keyword plus 1 or 2 keyword phrases use them in my my titles my H1H2 tags.The last thing I would want to do is saturate my page with keywords because i would get penalized from google.I would prefer to use my keyword and phrases naturally.

    I would do it like this : each keyword would have its own article as a post in my blog about bikes... and a nice good entertaining article would contain contextually all keywords as inline links. That way I could keep the visitor more on my site.

    Here is the method I use and it works for my websites.

    Keyword Phrase Do: The main thing is to naturally get your keyword phrase in the first few words of the title. Use it once at the end of the first paragraph and again in the last paragraph.

    Keyword Phrase Don't Do: Don't use it more than 4 or 5 times throughout the article. There used to be a rule that a good article, one that shows up on the first page of Google, uses the keyword phrase as a total of at least 10% of the article. That would mean that for a 400 word article would be used 40 times known as keyword stuffing.

    Keywords Do: Have your keywords appear 2-5% of the time in your article also known as "keyword density" naturally place your keyword(s) in the first few words of the paragraphs.

    Jeffery 100%

    Edit/Added:
    Use of keywords and keyword phrases is part of the on-page SEO primarily for organic search results. Another way to optimize for sales is to research the keywords and keyword phrases of the product sales page aka Sales page SEO. It is all relative. Naturally try to incorporate it all into your article. In some cases you will discover additional keywords and keyword phrases.

    The idea is your visitors will subconsciously flow from the article into your "funnel" and that is the goal wouldn't you say?

    depends of lenght if your article is short 500 words and you will put all of them there then it doesnt make a sense and it wont work
    Article has to be longer lets say more than 1000 words and have a structure where you can put all keywords separately in one piece
    Believe me I do SEO more than 5years and some clients want to put even 30 keywords in 300 word article

      True. 1,000 + word articles allows for a complete structure. On a lot of blogs people will create a home page with multiple excerpts of articles. The excerpts are typically 10 - 15 and 300 to 350 words and the full articles are 1,000 + words.


      In one sense a new visitor sees a quick and concise overview of the blog and has a choice of an article that interests them, solves a problem etc. In another sense the visitor typically landed on the page with the full article and thus does not have a quick and concise overview of the blog.


      After years of having articles on page 1 of the search engines I have found that no matter how the blog is organized for the reader the search engines give more weight to the article's SEO practices. When both are executed properly the visitor gets what they want, the search engine gets what they want, and my business gets what I want, lol.

  • It is rather difficult to focus on 10 keywords on just one article. Choose 5 and go with them

    In this case, you should write at least 3 articles for 10 keywords. One article for 10 keywords makes no sense.

    It is better to use one keyword per posting, or one keyword per article
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11482941].message }}
  • I would always go for a separate post so that I can include multiple long tail keywords around a specific keyword so that it can easily rank rather than combining all in one and targeting broad and hard keywords.

    no, just use only targeted keyword as per your blog title or content.

  • Hi,
    you can't use 10 keywords in one article. 2-3 keywords are enough for one article, so try to choose keywords as per that quantity only.
    or

    you can use 1 or 2 long-tail keywords phrase to cover your article keyword requirements... because a long-tail keyword is the combination of 2 or more short keywords

    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11483676].message }}
  • It wouldn't make sense to use them all in a shorter article. I'd group them and write 2 or 3 articles.

    Hi Mike,

    For keywords that are closely related like yours, you can do either options that you have mentioned. I would be inclined to use just 1 article and include all of your keywords.

    Hope this helps

    Regards.

    The thing that determines whether you should do one article or multiple articles is user intent:

    If you have several keywords that cover the same user intent - then you should try to target them with a single article. That way you can take the time to make it a more comprehensive treatment of the subject.

    If your keywords cover different user intents, then it's better to create a separate article for each user intent - in other words, group your keywords by user intent and create one article for each group.

    In your examples - "best bike for boys" and "best bike for girls", and "best bike for men" are different user intents and should have separate articles.

    "Best bike for men" and "best bike for a man" and "best bike for guys" are the same user intent and should be covered in a single article.

    Hope that helps.

    In general, it is recommended using a keyword density rate in the range of 1-2%. Too much keyword density can cause your site to be tagged as spam. It means the frequency of keyword use in overall content

    You can target 2 or 3 keywords for 1 article . Overuse of keywords will badly affect your article . If you have 10 relevant keywords , you can write 3 or 4 articles .

    Don't use all keywords in just one article, it's better to go with just 2-3 keywords per article, stuffing all the keywords in just one article will affect your article badly.

    If you have several Keyword, which are close to your Main keyword then, this keyword helps you to improve and your seobility and search visibility on the search engine.
    but if you are targeting those keywords in your content, then you have to focus on more than 1000 plus word.
    Actually you can use this keyword with heading tag along with your heading sentence,but you can use those keywords as the supported keyword ,you have to also mention your Main keyword.

    "Best bike" is your Main keyword but Man ,women ,guys those are the supported keyword.

    The ideal keywords count per article would be 2-3 since the article flow should look natural. Putting more keywords in single article may affect the flow and result in keyword stuffing unless the article is 1500+ words. I would suggest you to target group of 3 keywords per article.
