Many people ask the questions like, “What are keywords?” “What do keywords mean?” And so on.
Today I’m going to explain you briefly what are those “strange keywords”. Probably after reading this text, you will be more familiar with keywords.
The Definition of a Keyword
The keyword can mean many things in the different contexts (programming and other) but let’s concentrate on the keyword’s meaning in search engines.
“The keyword is a word or a sentence used by the search engine in its search for relevant Web pages.”
Let me give you some examples. The headline of this text is “What Does Keyword Mean?” The headline itself is a keyword. I made a little bit research and saw that people are looking for that keyword (“What Does Keyword Mean”) from Google.
So, when you write something to Google you are writing “a keyword”. If someone wants to learn how to make money online and writes in Google “How to make money online”, that is his “keyword”. Simple?
More Examples of Keywords
As I mentioned, my headline “What Does Keyword Mean?” is a keyword. People are looking for that in Google. My other articles in my website are for example
- 7 Benefits of Having a WordPress Website
- What is SEO and Why Do I Need It?
- Persistence Is the Key to Success
- 5 Benefits of Passive Income
People are looking these subjects in Google.
For example, many people have searched for “Benefits of having a WordPress website.” I tell you 7 benefits in the article, so I added the seven in front of the keyword. It makes the headline also more captivating and appealing.
People are also wondering what is SEO and why they need it. They are thinking what is key to success and what are the benefits of passive income.
Keywords are the words and sentences that people search from Google and other search engines. People are interested in those things because they are looking for them.
Every Article and Page Are Full of Keywords
The headline gets ranked in Google but also all the other stuff on the website. All the text in every post and page. All the images. Literally almost everything.
If you write for example a blog post of 700 words, (which is quite a normal for a blog post) it contains already a big bunch of keywords. Also, every image you add on your website can be ranked in search engines. There are techniques how you can get your images ranked better in Google but today we concentrate on the text.
Even though your every single article and page contains already a lot of keywords it’s still important to make “keyword research” to get your page ranked better. It will lead to more traffic on your website and people will find your website more easily.
Even if you don’t have any former skills on keywords, don’t worry! If you have experience from keywords, great!
Finding great and relevant keywords can take too much time if you don’t have proper tools for doing that. It may take time from other more important things.
That’s why there are great tools which make your keyword research way easier and faster.
