Optimize The Wrong Keywords And You'll Likely Never See Results ...

If you're anything like me, you've probably created a brand new website, Submitted it to a few
search engines and hoped that people would mysteriously show up at your site and buy
whatever it is you were selling.
After a couple of weeks go by and only a few stray people show up at your website, you decide
to try and "optimize" your website around your main keyword in hopes that you just might rank
well in 1 of the millions of search engines. Another couple of weeks go by and still no luck.
At this point you probably give up and decide to either build another website around a different
target market or just lose all hope and quit. Well, news flash, as you've probably figured out by
now, this is not the way to go about doing things.

Let me give you a specific example of what your very first steps MUST be when creating any website.

In our example, let's create a weight loss related website. Our weight loss related website will
primarily sell a weight loss eBook. Before we start creating and collecting content for the
website we need to do a little keyword research. This is VERY important and should not be
skipped. To do our keyword research we need to visit a few websites.

Do NOT start off by optimizing for the keyword "weight loss"
There are probably a million sites competeting for that keyword.

We can find some more specific keyword phrases like "weight loss story",
"weight loss picture", and "safe weight loss".

These could be possible keywords we should target to begin with. Once we have our list of 3
to 4 keywords, we need to go to Google and check out the competition to see exactly how hard
it will be to optimize for the specified keyword.

This is how we select an appropriate keyword for our business.In my next post i'll show you how to optimize them.
