More Help For Niche Market Bloggers
I have to admit that the ‘More Help For Niche Market Bloggers’ title of this post is a bit desperate. I’ve just spent a couple of hours completing the help pages on basic WordPress Settings at How Do I..? and wanted to draw attention to it. (Craven approval seeking at play here..).
As I described in an earlier post, the best way to construct your content is to put the permanent stuff into static pages and to draw attention to it with a post containing links to the static page.
All links are valuable in terms of promoting not only your site but also the individual pages within it. So one way internal links all count and are valuable.
So I need to construct my post with good keyword relevance. That means getting my keyword or keyword phrase into the post title and the first and last sentence of the post – plus a sprinkling in between. Oh, and as close to the start of the title or sentence as you can arrange it.
Of course, my last post was titled Help for Niche Market Bloggers – so how do I write about the same thing but with a different title? Answer – I don’t know and eventually gave up with the lame excuse you are reading here.
Does it matter? No it doesn’t because the main function of this tactic of keyword placement is to establish the relevance of your content for the search engine spiders.
Repetition of the keywords in your domain name, the post title, the first sentence – and then the last one to check that you are still on message is what the spiders are looking for.
The good thing is that the spiders form no opinion about you. They don’t think and don’t speak – except to Daddy G, the big Google. But while I might get away with this the once with you, dear human reader, it’s unlikely to be acceptable to you if I were to do it repeatedly.
And that is worth bearing in mind when writing to target keywords. Your writing has to flow and read well even when laced with keywords because it is your human readers who you want to come back and may eventually spend money with you.
So while you have identified the half dozen or so keywords for your niche market and write relevant content in your WordPress blog you need to keep your niche market blog a pleasant read for your visitors if they are to come back again.
