Sorry but the answers have nothing to do with my question. Let me try again. If you go to a web page and click on view page source you see the title tag, meta tags and a spot that says keywords. Those are the keywords that search engines see when they are looking for a site. My question is if i do keyword research and find 5 great short tail keywords and 5 long tail keywords and am going to put them on this page does it mater how they are put there. Example if I have a site about dogs going to bathroom on the floor and fine that the keywords dog crap is at number and dog crapping is number 2 and dog crapper is number 3 for the most used keywords should I put them on this page in order of most used goes first, and so on.
I put up to a maximum of 3 to 4 keywords that I will mainly target. I wont list them in terms of their popularity in the SEs or based on a higher monthly search volume. I personally will list them based on my priority - which keyword I would like to rank for.
Here is an example:
I typed the seed keyword "dog training" in Micro Niche Finder. I eliminated all the keywords with less than 3 words in them, eliminated the keywords with CPC of less than $1 and eliminated keywords with exact match local monthly search volume of less than 500. Here is what I got...Keyword Phrase Local Search Count (Exact Match) Strength of Competition
how to train a puppy 6600 418
dog obedience training 5400 85,200
dog training collars 5400 25,100
how to train a dog 5400 0
how to train your dog 5400 247,000
Looking at these data the most competitive term for these keywords is "how to train your dog" with a Strength of Competition (SOC) of 247,000. Based on this MNF data, the keyword that will be easier to rank for is "how to train your dog". In this case I will list this keyword in-front of the other 3 keywords I would like my site to be optimized for. If I choose my 4 keywords from these Top 5 keywords I would write them in order based on the lowest SOC. My site source code for my meta keywords will then look like this:
<meta name="keywords" content="how to train a dog,how to train a puppy,dog training collars,dog obedience training" />
I hope this helps.
