Suffer The Keyword- Keywords That Pay
Its All About Keyword Magic
I like so many others have spent my hard earned money on information or tutorials on keywords or SEO how to's. If your like me most of the information was useless to you. I have read that you should place your keyword in the beginning paragraph and the ending. You should bold or underline your keywords. The information purchased tells you don't over use your keywords or the search engines will gig you for keyword spamming. I have also read you shouldn't be generic with your words. A good example would be if your searching for a necklace you would not just enter necklace as your search term. You would narrow down and enter a phrase like gold turquoise cross necklace. Well, I can tell you I have tried everything followed these so called gurus lesson and advice to the T. Guess what I still work a day job and have not even gotten a return on my investments for my foolish purchases.
Now this brings me to why I am here writing this hub. I was skimming through the forums and came across a post titled "damn my highest keyword is unimpressed turtle". Another hubber responded to this post with "Thought that was Darkside's line". This peaked my interest, I did a google search on the term "unimpressed turtle", to my surprise this produced a result of 20300, and the top of the page was Darkside's hub "Celebrating Useless Keyword Victories". I read this hub with great interest, and found I was guilty of the very thing he was hubbing about. I have gotten so excited about showing up on the front page of a google search, and bragged to all my friends, yet no traffic was delivered. This you have to read for yourself http://hubpages.com/_mod2vint/hub/celebrating-useless-keyword-victories, you won't regret it, it is time well spent.
I can honestly say I have only one hub that has gotten what I call a tremendous amount of traffic, and most of that was from right here on hubpages. I thank you all for that, http://hubpages.com/_mod2vint/hub/Why-Sexy-Underwear
And only one good hub for google page views and that only generates about 10 views a day. But, google views out do hubpage views 3:1 http://hubpages.com/_mod2vint/hub/How-Many-Different-Types-of-Nuts-are-There
I guess what I'm trying to say is use the recommended tools like google keyword tools. Try out the recommended tricks of the trade. Just keep in mind you are the one who has to do his or her own due diligence.
One day I will not Suffer the keyword nor will I celebrate useless keyword victories. I will see regular checks in my mail box from google because I have gotten so good at the keyword tricks, rules, and games that one day someone will be buying a keyword SEO ebook from me.
I like to call this positive thinking!!♥
