PRINCIPLE #2 – Maximize Your SEO
Whether you write targeting certain “hot” keywords or not, you still have to optimize your articles for the search engines so that they can be found by your readers.
These are the components of your article that you must pay special attention to in order to maximize your Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
TITLE of the Article
This is usually automatically worked (by the posting interface) into the TITLE of the PAGE at the article site where your article is posted.
For example, if the title of your article is “Secrets of Article Writing” and if you post it on a site with a domain name (I’m making this one up) amazingtoparticles.com, then the page where your article will appear might have a PAGE TITLE (usually printed in white letters on the blue default-frame on the top of your browser) like the following:
Secrets of Article Writing
And the domain address of the page will be something like:
Just make sure that your KEYWORD (whether it’s “hot” or not) is a part of the ARTICLE TITLE so that it’ll also be a part of the PAGE TITLE as well as the PAGE DOMAIN ADDRESS.
That’s of great help in searches made with that keyword.
