An example article on how do you add keywords to your website

In the example above, I included my primary and secondary keywords that I want to rank for. I also included related keywords that I found on Google. I use anything that’s related to my main topic as long as it flows with my content and my audience doesn’t lose a few brain cells trying to read it. If your domain is new and has no authority, don’t worry too much about the search volume. If it’s on Google, it means that someone has searched for it before.

How many keywords should I add to my website?

There really isn’t a rule that’s set in stone saying you can only have X amount of keywords on your website. Google did implement a new rule on keyword stuffing that penalizes content that doesn’t prioritize user experience. But my rule of thumb is as long as the content is relevant to my primary keyword I’ll add it in. So that would usually be around 1-5 keywords with about 1000-2000 word count per page. Once it gets to that length, I’ll trim out some of the content I have and create a supporting page to link to each other.

You might get fast results this way but once Google finds out and penalizes you, it could ruin the hours you put into your website.

Where do keywords go in your website?

Similar to the question above but for your website you want to make sure it’s in your URL, title, meta description, heading tags, and paragraph tags. If it’s in there then you’ve pretty much done all that you can.
