Many website owners use keyword articles to help draw Internet traffic to their websites. Keyword optimized articles are those written with specific keywords that help the website pop up near the top of the search engine results page. To start attracting
Begin by researching popular keyword
phrases for the niche you're writing
about. There is a variety of popular keyword
research tools available that allow you to
plug in certain words and find out which
keyword phrases are popular with search
Write down all of the keyword phrases
you want to use in your articles and
then create article topics or titles for each
set of keywords.
Decide on the density needed for each
article. If writing these articles for
someone else, they may have a density
requirement for each keyword that you need
to meet. Most webmasters want a frequency
of at least 1% per article, which averages out
to five uses of each keyword when writing
the average 500 word article.
Create a rough outline for each article.
Keyword articles should have a general
intro, a few paragraphs for the body and a
conclusion. Keyword articles can end up not
making much sense if you focus only on
adding the keywords, so make sure the
outline specifies pertinent information that's
useful to the reader.
Conduct research using popular search
engines and cut and paste the
information you want to reference into a
separate word processing document. This
way you can quickly reference your research
in one place without having to spend hours
browsing the Internet for information.
Increase your typing speed if you're a
slow typist. Once you've got the article
outlined, all you need to do is type it. There
are plenty of free online programs that help
you practice typing to increase your speed. If
you don't type at least 70 words per minute,
you'll find that your article writing takes much
Use a voice-to-type program, if you
struggle with increasing your typing
speed. It allows you to speak the articles
into the program, using a microphone or
headset, and the program automatically types
it out for you.
Read the articles after you type them to
insure there are no errors that a
common spelling and grammar checker may
have missed. Once you give the articles a
quick edit, you can begin adding them to the
website or submit them to a client.
