Bonus Strategy #1: Post On Social Media at Strategic Times
Bonus Strategy #2: Find More Keywords With “Keywords Everywhere”
I was going to try all these things on his list only to find that you must be an established marketer to actually have the contacts and data that he mentions in his list. To put it bluntly, that really does not work for me, nor for you, I am sure, if you are new at this Affiliate Marketing process.
Some of the above items I could possibly do:
#4. Optimize Your Content With LSI Keywords
#7. Promote Your Site With Blogger Outreach
#16. Optimize for Google’s Mobile-First Index
#21. Use a Question Analyzer to create content
#24. Publish More List Posts
#26. Drive Traffic To Your Website From Forums
But most of these items on his list, you really have to be established to receive any attention to your site, or have the contacts that will work with you. This takes time to realize in the marketing industry.
Optimize Your Content with LSI Keywords
I did not even know what LSI Keywords were until I looked them up today.
LSI = Latent Semantic Indexing keywords
Latent Semantic Indexing keywords are keywords that are related to a main or central keyword in a given context. For example, let us say that our main keyword is ‘swimming’. A set of LSI keywords for ‘swimming’ may include ‘wade’, ‘dive’, ‘float’, ‘ocean’, ‘deep’’, and ‘backstroke’.
In the example above, some of the LSI keywords may be synonyms for the main keyword (e.g. wade), but this is not necessary. The main idea is that all of these keywords are likely to be found in an article about ‘swimming’, and are related to it.
As its name suggests, LSI is an indexing technology in natural language processing, and was invented by Susan Dumais at Bell Labs in the late 1980s, and predates the invention of the Internet.
Denise Wilhaus, Product Marketer at Twinword, Inc. has done quite a bit of research into FREE LSI Keyword databases and lists several on her blog located here:
They are similar to Wealthy Affiliates Jaaxy Research Tool, but contain a little bit different keywords that Google uses to rank your site.
Google uses it because it provides context. Not just content. I want to explore these Research databases, to help enrich the content in my writing so that people will find it more relevant to what they were looking for and possibly get a better ranking at Google, because their site crawlers look for its presence in the content of your website to rank you.
I also wanted to share that with you, my reader, so that you can possibly utilize these research databases as well.
Twinword also has several keyword research programs that will practically blow your mind. Iol. I know I got lost there today for about 3 hours just wandering around checking out all the systems they have for word research.
