    How to put search terms in our blogs and not make it a spam?

    I want to make my blog to be searchable in the internet like most of us.

    You put search terms in your browser not your blog or article.

    You use keywords in your articles or posts on your blogs. First of all, learn what a keyword is and how to use it properly.

      Thanks LindaSmith for your reply. I was enlightened, I realized that I have made a bad question.

    Okay, so you made a little mistake as pointed by LindaSmith1 - but that's okay. Your question is good. smile

    Actually using good keywords entails using words/phrases which people are likely to search for, but many people "stuff" these keywords unnaturally in the blog, in order to fool the search engines. This technique worked for very long time for some people, but now search engines are getting smarter.

    The most important rule of thumb is, try to actually, genuinely help people. Write something worthwhile. Next, place your keywords so that they sound natural. ("Read aloud" is a guideline suggested officially by many successful publishers)

    I've a written a detailed hub about improving your search engine results. May be you would like to have a look - … r-Articles

    Hope this was useful. smile

    Go to Google and search keyword tool,then look on there and you can find specific keywords that are higher ranking in search and stuff, you'll then get a general idea of how it works, I did that for my blogs and recently a good increase of traffic. Use singular keywords and never plural,for example, Book,instead of books.

    Interesting question, try to add your search term in the title of the hub, in the introduction to the post and also in the last paragraph, try using different synonyms for your main keyword in that way it will appear non spammy, It is also good to add capsules with subheadings where you can add your keyword. These are a few of my observations, but of course experienced hubbers would give you a more detailed answer of the same.

      Nice. I didn't think about doing that in my articles. I will start doing so now!

    I see you've already received some great advise from other fellow Hubbers. I'll add that you should probably not exceed 3% on keywords in your articles. Definitely use Google's keyword search. Go to Google Adwords, then select "Tools and Analysis" and select "keyword Tool" and click "keyword ideas" tab and search your keywords. Use long-tail keywords (3 or more words). I find that 4 or more will give you a better chance of ranking on the first page of Google Search. And look for "monthly global searches" at least over 1000 but probably not more than 10k-20k. And don't choose high competition keywords. Good luck RonDavy.

      Thank you maalarue for the pointers. I will do that.

    The key is simply to take the words already in your article and link them to pertinent articles, blogs, discussion boards, etc. that will add to your article information.

    The "spam" comes in when Hubbers link way too many words in their Hubs, link to websites selling something or that don't pertain to anything in their article, or use their Hub as a way to HEAVILY market their own products, websites, or services.

    I'm not much for going through all of the keyword programs or checking out my Google search ranking (maybe I should, but that seems to take all of the fun out of writing). Just be reasonable. If you don't think Hubpages, or your readers will approve, or benefit from what you're doing, you probably shouldn't be doing it.

    Try this keyword density checker.
    Simply add your blog URL into the search bar and it will tell you the keyword density of each search term related to your blog. Try not to exceed 3%, then your blog will look as spam to Google.
