Keywords are essential in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and therefore to your online marketing success. Keywords are the terms that searchers enter into search engines, such as Google or Bing. A search engine will return a list of search results based on its analysis of how likely the web page, PDF or other item will meet the searchers’ needs. Searchers typically look through page one of the search results to find what they are looking for; they rarely go even to page two. By using effective keywords in your web content, you’ll increase your chances of appearing on page one of the search results. Appearing on page one increases the chances the link to your site will be clicked. This, in turn, will increase your opportunity to gain prospects and sales.
