What are Keywords? - Peterborough Web Design
Updated: Mar 2, 2019
Keywords, what exactly are they and when and where are they used in your website?
Ok, so keywords are used in multiple places and mostly get spoken about by those that are talking to you about SEO (search engine optimization). If you need to learn about SEO then visit our previous blogs on this.
Keywords are generally defined as the words and phrases that people enter into search engines when they are looking to find something.
For example, Signpost Media is a Web Design Company in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. If you were searching for us on Google or Bing, you may be looking for an individual or business that offers the same or similar services to what we offer. So, you would open up Google and you may type one the following-
Web Designer Peterborough
Website Designer Peterborough
Web Design Peterborough
Web Developer Peterborough
Local Website Designer
Best Web Designer Peterborough
You'll notice that keywords don't mean just one word, keywords can be called short or long tail which is kind of self-explanatory if you just think about it. So, Web Designer is short and Best Website Designer in Peterborough would be long.
So how does this work when you are building your website or trying to promote your Website to customers?
When you build the Website, you should choose relevant keywords and build these into the content of your Website and within the page titles and page descriptions of your site. Plus, these keywords would make up the basis of your Google Adwords Campaign.
Hopefully this blog has simplified keywords for many of you that didn't understand them previously and wanted a basic understanding of them.
