Key Word Research for your Blog

keyword research
Key word research is a major part of search engine optimization. If you’re not being found on google then you’re probably not doing any key word research. To start off, you’re probably thinking to yourself, this guy is an idiot, he doesn’t even know how to spell ‘key word.’ But trust me, I do know how to spell ‘keyword.’ I am spelling ‘key word’ the way I do, for a certain reason.

Key words misspellings – alternates

I have to be honest with you, it’s not every day that I write a post with a million misspelled words just to get extra views. But at the same time, if it works, then why not? When researching key words, you want to think about misspellings and alternate words that mean the same thing. Most of the time you just want to stick to alternates though. Unless, you’re trying to look really stupid by having a word misspelled on your page a billion times.

When researching alternate words, you want to think about complete opposites. For example. Let us say that there is a post about Miley Cyrus and how she took a picture of herself in a bra. We get on google and type in ‘Miley Cyrus Bra.’ What happens? A million results show up. However, we then think, Miley Cyrus is also Hannah Montana. People know her better by Hannah Montana. Let’s type in ‘Hannah Montana bra’ in google and see if anything appears. Lone behold, the results are cut into just a few sites that have used these key words. With this being said, you will be more likely to be found because of a simple alternate key word you chose to use.
