Hello everyone, do you still consider adding your keywords inside your blog post content? I understand that they should look natural and not being pushy adding those keywords and key phrases.

We use to be able to rank pages for 2-3 cities with similar blogs but it looks like Google doesn't like that anymore but I could be wrong of course. What that means, we are probably going to have to write a new blog post for each city and key phrase.

Here is a screenshot of 1 of the new blog articles written. It is on the 1st page for Google in "Lakewood Ranch" which is the city right next to Sarasota. 1st page which is great. Google excluded the other content bc it thinks it is too similar. I believe if we write fresh posts for each city, we should get included in the higher rankings no problem. It will mean more work creating content.

Please let me know any recommendations or ideas you have. Your input will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

  • I think this has a lot to do with how Google does local search. https://hurrdatmarketing.com/seo-new...nking-factors/

  • If you are planning to work only with SEO copywriting, it is highly recommended to incorporate your keywords into the post content itself. There are a few ways you can do that: -Write for humans, not robots. Write naturally and include one or two (max) sentence fragments per paragraph. Make use of semicolons, colons, ellipses, exclamation points and other punctuation marks to make your text more readable. -Use synonyms for relevant keywords and put this word or phrase into bold font if possible (this will attract attention from readers). -Use italics, capitals and underline to highlight phrases that are most relevant to specific search queries. -Add these optimized sentences in blocks of 200+ words each, interspersed throughout the article where they make sense (online magazine editors usually have "blocks" of 550+ words at their disposal). -Insert your target keyword into the last sentence before subheadings. -Include links in sentences or phrases that contain target keywords as well as within blocks of around 200 words each where you include a certain keyword (for instance you could use not only the keyword "entrepreneurship" but also all its derivatives like "Entrepreneurship".

    When Google's algorithm was less mature, it was easy to rank any page by repeating keywords many times but now you have to be very careful when putting keywords in your page. Use keywords naturally in the page. Write content for humans not for bots.

    Keywords are definitely still useful for ranking and they should be part of your blog posts, but, of course, you need to make sure not to saturate text just with keywords and to use them only in places where they really make some sense and sound natural. Also, keywords are valuable but you really need to make fresh content for each topic, as if you only duplicate them and adjust a bit with some keywords, you won't be able to get desired results, so you need to put some effort in content creation as well to be able to rank higher with keywords.

    You must include keywords with the city in your blog post but naturally use them. This helps Google to know about the topic user searching it. And write another blog for a different city not copy that one.

    Adding Keywords in "Head" or "Subhead" tags will help you a lot in improving your website rank. Use keywords naturally along with the location targeting. Use main keyword in first 200-250 words of your content, as keywords help search engines in better understanding of the topic.

  • Yes, but the keywords should not be placed in the header; instead, they should be placed in the second or third paragraph, and the content should be longer than 300 words.

    Keywords are still relevant but you must do them as natural as you can and not in a way to pushy for search engines
