The Purpose of Using Relevant Keywords

SEO Keywords

Keywords can be anything from one word to short phrases that describe whatever the topic of the website or the website page is.  It is good to customize the keywords for each page because every page does not contain the same content.  A keyword is what you enter into the search engine before hitting enter and seeing what it pulls up.

So when someone enters “little girls ballet shoes” the search engines will return a list of web pages that are relevant to the keywords you entered.  If your website uses the exact phrase the user searched for as a keyword, part or of the phrase (“ballet shoes”) or a related phrases (e.g. “girls shoes,” “Adidas” or “ballet flats”) Google is more likely to show the user your website.

Only 2% of the total traffic to your website is from clicking on paid advertisements, even though you will always find the paid ads at the top of each search page results.  Using keywords is not only more effective than ads, but it is also more cost effective.

Experiment Shows Up To 60% Of “Direct” Traffic Is Actually Organic Search

Everyone knows that browsers don’t always report where visitors came from when they arrive at a website. When they don’t report where they were in the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) referrer header, often the traffic is considered “Direct” — which really means, “we have no clue where they came from, maybe they typed the URL in or hit a bookmark.”

There are legitimate reasons why browsers shouldn’t report where they have come from. The HTTP technical spec (RFC 2616) says when traversing from an HTTPS site to an HTTP site, a browser should not report where it was. And users can set privacy settings that instruct their browsers never to report this at all.

In testing with default browser settings, we’ve found differences based on whether you perform a search at Google directly vs. in a browser’s search box, or based up which version of an operating system you are running. Getting a referrer is unreliable, which means organic traffic measurements are unreliable.

But all this has been known for some time. What hasn’t been known — and what is the bane of all SEOs fighting for budget — is that we know some percent of Direct is really Organic, but we don’t know how much. Until now.
