I have been practicing organic or “natural” search engine optimization since about 1996 or so. Over the years, I’ve always paid attention to the keywords that not only bring traffic to your website but keywords that I would call “money words”.
I’ve compiled a list of 52 keyword phrases related to SEO or “search engine optimization” that I would consider to be the top “money words”. For various reasons, including the fact that people searching for these keywords have brought me traffic and “conversions”, I’ve kept these search engine marketing keywords a little “close” to my heart. But, since I’m feeling quite generous today I thought I’d release my list.
To make it a little easier to post this list, I’ve decided to post it in a few parts. Here is the first part of the list, in no particular order.:
search engine advertising
search engine marketing
search engine optimization
search engine optimization seo
search engine optimization services
search engine optimization software
search engine placement
search engine positioning
search engine promotion
search engine ranking
search engine rankings
search engine submission
search engine submissions
seo search engine
Keep in mind that I have used these SEO-related keywords for different purposes at different times, but have always used them during a PPC campaign or even as a reference when I’m writing SEO articles, or even just body copy for a search engine optimization website.
Generally speaking, I find that when someone searches for one of these keyword phrases, they’re looking for more information about search engine optimization and want either more information about it or they are looking for SEO-related services.
There are many ways that this keyword list could be helpful to you if you’re a search engine marketer. The obvious use would first be to use it in a PPC (pay per click) campaign. You could also use these keywords if you were a trying to sell search engine optimization services on your own site: integrate these keywords into title tags, meta tags, and, of course, the body copy. You could also go through the list and write a definition of each one (wow, a great quick way to put together a glossary!).
The second part of the list follows below.
seo target marketing
seo site builder
seo website builder
top search engine ranking
increase website traffic
For those people who are looking to hire some to perform search engine marketing or SEO (search engine optimization), then perhaps you might search for these keyword phrases at your favorite search engine.
Another use might be to add your location (e.g., Dallas SEO service) to search for someone near you who performs these services. The possibilities are endless. Good luck, have fun with this list.
