How to Choose Keywords to Theme Your Pages and Boost Your Traffic

Written by Andy Williams

One ofrepparttar most frequent questions I get asked is inrepparttar 146044 choice of keywords for a new site, specifically secondary keywords.. These arerepparttar 146045 words or phrases that you use when writing your content to help themerepparttar 146046 page so thatrepparttar 146047 search engines know what your page is about. These secondary keywords also help to bring in more traffic, because they add more depth to your page, meaning that your page is found for a lot more phrases than justrepparttar 146048 primary phrase you page is built around.

Let's look at an example.

Suppose you were building a niche site on hemorrhoids.

One of your main pages is likely to be about treating hemorrhoids. Let's use "hemorrhoid treatment" as our primary keyword phrase for this page (it has high searches, but also high competition, so secondaries are going to be working hard to get this page ranking high for related phrases).

So how do you find secondary keywords for use on this page? Surely there cant be many possible secondaries?

Well, you have a few options for finding secondaries. There is a paid service called Thememaster which a lot of marketers use for this purpose (search Google for this one if you are interested - I have not used it, so cannot recommend it). However, my own favourite method is using Keyword Results Analyzer. If you own it, you have all you need to find those secondaries.

I carried out research at Wordtracker for this niche, and imported them into KRA. One ofrepparttar 146049 strengths of KRA isrepparttar 146050 filtering and reporting features. To find secondary keywords, I simply filterrepparttar 146051 phrases that containrepparttar 146052 word "treat". This will pull out all phrases containing treat, treatment etc. Since all phrases in my database are related to hemorrhoids, all phrases returned will be related to treating this condition.

KRA gives me 61 phrases that are searched for atrepparttar 146053 search engines related to hemorrhoid treatment. Nowrepparttar 146054 difficulty is not how to find secondaries, it is how to choose from 61 related phrases (which is obviously too many for a single page).

Here arerepparttar 146055 61 phrases:
