Optimize your articles for keywords by using the Creator Engine
Creating content that drives traffic to your website isn't easy. However, if you follow the best practices you can increase the chances of becoming more visible for your target audience. Optimizing your articles for keywords is one way of doing that.
The keyword research is an important part of the so-called On-Site Optimization process.
How to do a keyword research?
Several keyword research tools help you find the words you should optimize your article for, such as SEMrush, Moz or the SEO profiler.
When running a keyword research, make sure your focus word reflects on the customer's intent. You might come up with a great topic you think your audience is interested in but it's an assumption at the end of the day.
Figure out what people talk about, what questions they ask. The sales team can have a great input regarding the customer's problem. You can also go to sites like Quora to understand what people talk about. You can also check your competitors' social channels to see what problems people struggle with.
It's important to pick the keywords that have a high search volume but low keyword difficulty.
How to use keywords in your content?
Once you have your focus keyword in mind, place it in the title of your articles. Include the relating keywords in the subheadings and the copy as well. Don't overstuff your blog posts with keywords but include related keywords that help you build topic authority.
