Here I am with a old book edited in Romanian by a Romanian who has edited and created a great website, one of the best in the country. The book is 10 years old and he basically said that you should never ever put keywords in the same order. What I am trying to say is that I should never put identical keywords one after another. This means that you should never put keywords which start with the same letters and have the same meaning one after another. Is this rule still real after 10 years?
I don't know about any such rule as it affects SEO but it sure sounds awkward, lame, and forced if you insert keywords into a piece in any way other than how they'd naturally fall in speaking or writing. I don't know if following that rule you mentioned will help with SEO but it will sure help your writing to be more readable than if you were to unnaturally arrange keywords in a specific order multiple times on a page.
I make it a policy never to read advice on SEO that's more than six months' old. Things change so fast, anything from last year is quite likely to be wrong.
yes.... and no.... the wording is crap, but essentially the base message is true, you don't want google to think you are keyword stuffing, so yes putting the same keyword over and over would be viewed as keyword stuffing.
That is a good Tip Marisa. There is a lot of outdated material out there. Some of the old information was always wrong as is the new information incorrect. If in doubt, I try to find out what Google has to say on the subject.
If you write a hub reviewing a company, you must put other words as substitutions for name of company to avoid keyword stuffing. This is an example, as I am working on this topic right now.
If you polish your skills in writing well - and then write normally - you should have no problem in conveying your meaning to your intended audience and for that to also be understood by the search engines.
Let's not forget that keywords have been and come and gone and we are now well and truly into the era of the semantic web.
There's a hub (not mine!) about semantic search - written 2 years ago by GreekGeek who I've always found offers reliable advice.
Google search algorithms are now built around conversational meaning - not isolated keywords per se.

Hi All,I've been focusing on trying to improve my keyword SEO and had a couple of questions - How many keywords do you try to rank for in a given article? I know this will depend on length and topic but ballpark? Can you try to rank for too many keywords? (Obviously if it makes the copy...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

I have been cramming in all the SEO information I can find lately. I have found some great nuggets hidden amongst the wave of dudes just wanting to sell their E-books. However, I am wondering if some of the information I am finding is outdated now since semantic variation is being utilized so much...

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...

Hello Everyone, I’m primarily a writer, not a computer buff or web-site designer and in my other attempts at on-line writing I haven’t been trying to earn money, so I haven’t bothered about gaining traffic. I’m patient, I’ve read it takes a while to build up earnings, but...
