Thank you for the fine article, Kiviniar.
I understood most of it and it clarified many concepts for me. I would like to provide the scenario I'm contemplating:
a) Let's say I'm building a website dedicated to ripe bananas
and of course, it goes without saying that "ripe bananas" would be my main keywords and also the URL of my website.
b) Doing some keyword research I've also discovered that the terms "very yellow bananas" and "extremely yellow bananas" are also in high demand when folks are looking for ripe bananas.
c) Ok, so now I'm about to write the content of my website giving top priority to the keyword phrase "ripe bananas," but also giving good - but secondary placement - to the other 2 keyword phrases "very yellow bananas" and "extremely yellow bananas."
d) As you can see, I want my website to show up primarily in the SERPs for ripe bananas
, and also when folks search for very yellow bananas
and extremely yellow bananas.
e) Now I'm about to offer my website to 500 directories....how do I go about that? Read on:
- If the directory accepts multiple listings I can do separate listing for all 3 key phrases
- Otherwise, should I split the listings into thirds, meaning: 500/3 = 166 and then use each key phrase in only one third of the directories?
All the above implies that I would use "ripe bananas," "very yellow bananas" and "extremely yellow bananas" as the Title in only a third of the directories.
Are my assumptions above correct?
I thank you for your time and look forward to your opinion.
