Is it safe to use multiple exact keywords?

Hello,

I have a blog on which I have written many articles, I'm ranking for a lot of them.

However, during my keywords research from the competing articles, using the SEO tool I noticed that they were naturally ranking for multiple keywords, like for example:
  • best fast water phones
  • best speedy phones for water
  • fast aquatic phones

Knowing that, can I add the same exact keywords to my content, "text", or "h2 tags", for the purpose of springling them in my article to let google know better my post.

I'm considering doing the same for a lot of my articles, but I need to be sure that this won't be considered as "spamming" or "keyword stuffing" in the eyes of Google if I use exact keywords match.


Your advice would be deeply appreciated.

Thank you

    Many well ranking pages will rank for 100s of keyword variations.

    You don't need to have a phrase on the page to rank well for it.

    G. doesn't care how many times you are repeating the same keywords,
    Why not? Well, because there is no way Algo will calculate amounts of
    every kw, where it's used, how many times, in relation to which subject etc.
    Algo's job is to register and to process kw for usage in SERP and that's all.

    It would make sense to have your very best content on your blog

    Then do all the keywords on other blog posts, which then internally link to the very best content (with your selected/desired ranking keywords healthy ratio) url.

    Do offline marketing as well and that helps

    I`m doing similar exercise but by looking at my Google Search Console queries for specific articles. If I have missed some and they are relevant to my article, I'm trying to incorporate them either within text or h2, h3s etc.

    It will automatically rank if your keywords best match the contents.

    Keywords variation is so important but if you are getting traffic from using exact keywords then it is OK!

  • It depends on the length of the article.

    Google has its specific algorithm in keyword analysis so you must follow the algorithm rules otherwise you could be a victim of keyword stuffing or spamming.

    Google is constantly bringing new algorithms and you will not realize when it spams your content.

    The best way is to avoid keyword stuffing and maintain a good ratio. I believe, relevant content, along with back linking strategies will help you get a good rank in future.

    Obviously, this would give you the exact opposite of the result you're looking for.

    Make sure you use keywords that are understandable by humans rather than stuffing exact keywords.

    Yes, this is going to help rank for relevant keywords, dont forget to link all blog posts to rank pretty soon. Google likes to see a website that has a lot of content around specific niche. Also make sure there are no authority sites on Google first page to rank well.

    Not exact kw but you can use multiple different variations of a kw to rank for a particular page, and this practice is completely valid.

    You should use your exact match (or very closely related) keyword or phrase in your H1, in at least one H2 and a few times in your content. Just don't overuse it. Don't add it 40 times in a 700 word article. 2 or 3 times per 1000 words should be fine.

      Why?
      When and where has it announced by G. or any SE authorities that counts?
      And what happened if we "overuse it", like 80 times in 700 words?
      Do you really believe G. counting how many times same kw used?
      What about crawler whose job is to do nothing more than finding and reporting text?
      Are you aware that if you take article and scramble every word, crawler would
      care less because it's illiterate and that if you put some keywords to search, it order
      doesn't matter because G. doesn't read sentences as we do but single words?

      So, where did you get all that information?
