    Keyword Help


    If my niche is "keyboard reviews" and my homepage is "keyboard reviews"

    Should I be focusing on trying to find the best possible combinations of using those keywords for my each pages but with slight variations using the core keywords?

    Ex:

    Home Page is optimized for "keyboard reviews"
    Page #1 - Best of Keyboard Reviews
    Page #2 - 2009 Keyboard Reviews

    Will my site "as a whole" rank higher if i use that above strategy or does it really affect the sites PR if i don't?

    Thanks

    Yes, if you have a targetted theme it will help the site overall as Google will see it more relevant for that particuliar topic.

    If you site has multiple pages about "keyboard review" then it will be more useful for a visitor than a site that ha sonly page.

    The main thing is to keep the keywords relevant for the content. This may involve adding more words on the page to so that the words you use in the title at least appear in the content once.

    Your should also consider variations of the words in order to catch ranking on long-tail searches. For example...

    expert keyboard reviews
    wireless keyboard reviews
    reviews of braille keyboards

    SEs use semantics in their algorithms so they're a little more intelligent when it comes to seeing similarities in the words you choose in order to build the site theme.

    Yep, you should also target less difficult, more descriptive keywords.. Also using this method would target the right users.
