Article Internet Marketing For Beginners: Content Marketing Fast and Easy
Keywords and keyword phrases are just words or a word phrase. Often the term “keyword” includes phrases. Keyword phrases are also called keyphrases, long tail keywords or long tail keyword phrases. I prefer to use the term Keyword to mean both single and multiple words.
Bottom line, keywords are words and phrases that the search engine analyzes for their indexes and what people type into the search engine to find the information they want. Examples of keywords are: gardening, organic gardening, herb garden, gardening tips, gardening supplies.
In this usage, what is important is how often the word or phrase was searched in search engines, such as Google. In other words, how often did people type into Google that word or word phrase to find the information they are looking for.
So if I am writing about antique furniture, if I use ‘old’ as a keyword, it wouldn’t work so well as I would get people searching for old hats, old dogs, etc. Yet I could use a keyword phrase of ‘old furniture’ if it ranks well in the search engine listings.
Keywords, in this usage, has little to do with the older copywriting concept of a key word or phrase in the article. Think of it as that humans do not read keywords initially. It’s all about how people will search the internet and find the article, so the computer reads it first.

A typical blog serves as an online journal or diary where an individual lets the world know how they think and feel about certain things.

What is blog marketing?
Blog marketing is the use of a blog or blogs to produce traffic for the purpose of monetizing that traffic. Using a blog to market a product or merely as a means of producing online income is cheaper than using a website, a lot cheaper. This is mainly because of the availability of free blog services that are in many ways just as good as having a website you spent a boatload of money on. Because blog marketing has few barriers to entry, it is an excellent way for a beginner to get their feet wet in the Internet Marketing business.
Thanks to both the human and Search Engine demand for quality content, it's entirely possible to make serious money from creating, promoting, and maintaining blogs. As I hope to show you in this book, turning a blog into a cash machine is relatively inexpensive and can be done by anyone who understands the basics of marketing and the Internet.
Basic SEO Explained
In this book, we will look at what Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is, and the ways in which it can be used. Through this book, we will provide you with the basics on using Search Engine Optimization in order to improve traffic flow to your site.
By many people, SEO is considered to be a part of search engine marketing. It is often used when people are describing a process for improving the amount of traffic that goes to a website from various different search engines. Many site owners will engage in using SEO in an attempt to obtain qualified visitors to their
site. The quality of these visitors will often be measured by what specific keywords they are using in order to reach the desired result they want, such as making a purchase, or it could just viewing or downloading a particular page on that site. It may be that the visitor just requests some further information, or they sign up to a newsletter.
Search Engine Optimization is a marketing strategy which can often generate a good return for the site. But what must be remembered is that search engines are not actually paid for the traffic they send to a site from a natural (organic) search. Plus, they will regularly change the algorithms that they use for these searches to be carried in an effort to improve the results for people using their search engine. In fact, there is no guarantee that using this system is successful in either the long or short term for any website. Because of this, SEO is often compared to traditional forms of PR (Public Relations), while PPC (Pay per Click) advertising is more closely associated with traditional forms of advertising.
However, even if you do find you have increased traffic to your site because of SEO, if your site is unprepared for this increased traffic, it may in fact be detrimental to your site, as visitors will go away feeling dissatisfied and will not return.
But though SEO can be considered as a marketing tactic which is a law unto itself, it is often considered to part of the bigger picture by many industry experts.
