Why Keywords Are Imporant When Writing Online

By Edited Aug 13, 2015 1 8

So you have some articles online but you are not sure why they are not making money like you thought they would? Every article online can make some money but there is way more to writing online than just creating content. Being an online writer now for almost 2 years I do not know it all but I have learned a few things on my journey to being a freelancer, which I love being by the way. I want to talk about keywords in this article and why that may be one reason for your low earnings when writing online.

Why are keywords so imporant when writing online? Well some of it has to do with how Google crawls your content. See the bots look through most articles to see how many keywords are in the writing that you wrote. I have read many opinions online when it comes to keywords and from what I can understand it seems you should flow your writing but make sure at some point the keyword is mentioned natrually throughout your writing. Repeating the word every sentence will not get you high in the ranks but making sure the word or words flows nicely throughout the article is really part of writing online.

Tags are part of the keywords as well. See what tags you use should go with the words you are shooting for in terms of what the article is really about. Most of us do not know this but I want to share this so we all can become better writers online so we all can make better monthly or weekly income when it comes to be a freelance writer.

There is so much more when it comes to writing online so don't think keywords are the only key to your suscess. Sharing with others and social media are so imporant as well. So if you have a myspace, or facebook be sure to share your articles there as well so you can have family and friends look at your writing online too the more views the better.

If you have time look up keywords online in some search engines and see what else you can learn about what they are and how they are used when writing online so you too can earn more when writing online. Thanks for reading this article and feel free to comment on my article.

I agree that your writing should flow. Some "SEO optimized" articles repeat their keywords too often that it even feels spammy. Those articles are so disconnected with me as a reader, that you stop reading them altogether and just hit the Back-button on your browser to find something better.

I think writing is done for readers in the first place. My readers are human, not spiders.

I am still learning about keywords. I have two blogs but I never bothered with using keywords. I am definitely going to go back through my posts and put keywords on them. Hopefully this will increase traffic to them. Thanks for the article.

It is definitely important to emphasize the right keywords and phrases, as well as to utilize a good density level, while still sounding natural in your writing.

Thanks for your help. I am new at this and still trying to figure out what key words are. I know what SEO stands for but not how to optimize. Thanks for the tips.

Actually Google ignores Meta tags. The other search engines still consider them.

Fist I want to say your username is perfect. Momtrying2makeit, I love it.

I'll tell you, I wish I knew this a while back. I recently realized having the keywords flow through my content makes a difference to SEO and I've noticed the an increase to views, traffic and clicks.

Anyone who comes by this article should definitely take this suggestion to heart. Great article.

another thing important about keywords apart from the way you use them, is the way you choose them. There are keywords with a lot of searches each month and others are hardly ever searched. Plus you should have a look at the competition as well in order to know whether it is possible to rank your keyword so that your article gets read. Good luck!
