When using keywords in title and headings.

    Do you have to use the exact keyword or does it just have to be part of the title? Thanks.

    I prefer to use it 'as is' but others insert it to match the title. Were I you, I'd just make it the URL.

    Whatever you do, make sure it's in there somewhere smile

      Thanks, but isnt it better to have it as many places as possible?

        Within reason. Definitely the title and url. Then a couple of times in the article.

      Also, is it more important to have it in the url than the title for instance?

        You should have the most important keyword in both the url and the title regardless of which is more important. And if frogdropping were here she might probably say that your keywords should make up about 4-5% of your text.

        The Title is more important than the URL.

        Search engines regularly crawl and index, and even rank highly, forum threads. Even now most forum software will have the URL as a number, eg: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/37414

        But still, have it in the URL for the sake of the humans who might be copying, pasting and sending it to friends via email or spelling it out to them over the phone.
