What Does Keyword Mean?

What are keywords

What are keywordsMany 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

People are looking these subjects in Google.

Benefits of passive income

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.

Keyword Google

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.

  1. in most cases not many people use to know what is meant by keywords and with this post have points it out all and explained all to even people who cannot really tell what it meant

    for the upcoming provide more definition and example on how to use and when to use those keywords


  2. Hi Roope,

    Thanks for sharing this information. I am relatively new to the world of blogging. Now I can see the importance of keywords. I didn’t know that keyword research can be such a big thing.

    I have implemented your technique here and even tried out the Jaaxy tool . My post is still not ranked yet on search engines. I guess there are other factors in ranking a website?

    1. Hi Alex and thank you for the comment.

      Yes, it can be surprising how important keyword research is in the online business. There are also other factors to help you to get ranked on search engines. For example, the engagement (comments and others), backlinks and the age of your website can help you to rank better. The search engines don’t usually rank brand new websites very well so that’s one thing why the patience is required in the online business 🙂

      I wish you success!


        1. Thank you Kanu. The purpose of my article was to explain “Keyword” term in a simple way as possible so it seems that I have achieved the goal. 🙂 Sometimes we use the terms that are not familiar for everyone so I have written some of these definition type of articles to explain different terms simply.

  3. Hi There,

    Thank you for clarifying what keywords mean. In short they are, in search engine world search terms, the words people use to find web sites.

    I didn’t know EVERYTHING on your site can be a keyword, even images! Wow. Good to know. I learned something new today. Thanks for that!.
