Say What You Mean: Using Keywords in Your Online Presence

 

Snellen_chart.svgI was recently told the following story:

A mother brought her young son to the optometrist because he had complained that he could not see everything that was written on the blackboard. The child is an excellent reader, so the doctor opted to use the traditional alphabet-based eye chart.

The doctor pointed to one of the smaller rows and asked the boy if he could read it. The boy replied, “No, Sir.” The doctor then pointed to a row with larger letters, and again asked, “Can you read this?” The little boy again answered, “No, Sir.” As the doctor moved up the chart, the little boy said that, no, he could not read the row. Finally, the doctor reached the second row from the top– the one just below the big “E” – and once again, the little boy replied that he could not read it.

By now, the doctor and the mother were quite concerned. The optometrist finally asked, “Are you sure you cannot see the letters?” The little boy replied, “Oh! I can see the letters but you asked if I could read it and none of the letters in the rows of letters made words!”

Conclusion: Be sure the words you use convey the message you want the recipients to receive.

Writing for the Web is no different. You have to not only use your company’s keywords, but you need to use then often enough –without overdoing it – to be noticed by the search engines but without forgetting that you are writing for people. After all, keywords are not just important to your Website content, but if you wish to be found on the Web, you need to use them as part of your social media updates, PPC campaigns, landing pages and blog posts.
