Twitter Question of the Week

August 24, 2011
This week I asked my Twitter followers:

++What's your 1 tip for naturally working keywords into content?++

Here's how they responded:

JulieJoyce: First say it out loud as you would if you were telling it to someone. Then write it.

NewfangledMark: Writing content which is based on your expertise and solutions that answers your prospects' problems.

Davidcarrillo: Take draft & look for related words you can sub with keywords; sentences you can restructure to add singular & plural variations.

SeoSteven: Create content that fits your keywords, don't try to fit your keywords into your content.

dan_shure: Have a really clear focus on the purpose of the site/page. Keywords flow once the idea is figured out: 90% prep & 10% writing.

therichbrooks: Just KEYWORDS make KEYWORDS sure KEYWORDS you KEYWORDS don't KEYWORDS overuse KEYWORDS them. P.S. KEYWORDS.

BeSearchable: The trick to including keywords into content naturally is to know your primary keyword, yet forget it as you write.

ShaMenz: From original KW phrase, develop variations – singular, plural, etc. Place one variation at beginning of each paragraph & write copy naturally around them.

MichaelTheHayes: No silver bullet, just write natural quality content, make it about your target keywords. Post panda, forcing keywords is a no-no.

forestsoftware: I use the old public speaking idea - tell 'em what you are going to say, say it and tell 'em what you have just said.

oleary: I start with 1 main keyword and a few long tail variations and write content in sections covering each keyword phrase.

Tony_DWM: Relax, let is flow and don't stress. Read it aloud - does it make sense? Rinse and repeat ;-)

Netrafic: We tell clients to just write specifically about the subject on the page and the keywords will be there! Then we tweak :-)

And a summarized version of a Facebook friend's response:

Ken Jones: Take the annoyingly zen approach and forget your keywords and just write about your keywords.

Jill's Comment: I'm surprised nobody mentioned my favorite (and I think easiest) way to get keywords into your content--write more descriptively instead of in generalities.

Ask questions and then answer them. Eg. State their problem then give the solution.
Are you looking for x? Do you need help creating a y? Abc would love to help you find the right X, with easy steps to create your Y to give you the Z you deserve.

Write the content as though you were the end user. If you won't read the piece...
will someone else?
