Have you ever been in a situation when you’re writing a blog post, but have no idea how many of your keywords have been used? Well, if you’re like me, you’ll find a very handy FireFox add-on extremely helpful.
It goes by the name of Wordtracker SEO Blogger—and it deserves this title. Once installed you simply type in your desired keyword in the search box. For example, when I wrote my article How to Design a Mockup Pallet Racking, I typed the word foamex. Now, this word appeared at the top of the list with 83 searches. To use this word I simply chose “add” and it was entered into the “chosen keywords” list (shown in the image below).
This is the amazing part: every time you use a keyword, the Wordtracker SEO Blogger Addon adds it in a column so you always know how many times it has been used. As can be seen, I have used the word foamex 25 times, which seems quite a lot. However, the article in question was nearly 2500 words long, so simple maths places the use of that keyword to roughly 1%—perfect.
As can also be seen, I have used words such as pallet racking, correx and industrial velcro in various amounts (based on the importance of the keyword).
Does it work? Well, it certainly does help, although for the article in question, the keyword foamex is a very niche word. The search results shown below, display the top 2 listings in Google for the keywords Foamex Designer. Both the links are for both my articles on Foamex designs (How to Design a Mockup Pallet Racking and Large-Format Foamex Design for Next Distribution).
It just goes to show how there is very effective way of tracking keywords and it’s no secret—like many would want it to be (so a competitive edge may be sought).
I’m no expert on using keywords, but I hope this article can help you out. If you’re a Firefox user I recommend this great addon—and I believe it will do your site or blog real justice.
Have you been using this addon? What do you think of it? Has it helped your listings within search results?
