Can you rank for multiple keywords? [Video]

The short answer is YES. You can and even should rank for multiple keywords.

Key points about ranking for multiple keywords

  • Yes, you can rank for multiple keywords and you should strive for that.
  • Any successful page or website will rank for multiple keywords (hundreds, thousands, or even more).
  • These keywords will – in most cases – be related to the main topic of the page or will be a subtopic of the main topic of the page (where you devote a paragraph to it).
  • One keyword is unlikely to bring you a lot of traffic.
  • A single page or article can get a lot of traffic because it ranks for multiple related keywords. The more keywords it ranks for, the more traffic it usually gets.
  • When optimizing your pages, make sure to optimize them for one main topic/keyword.
  • Multiple keywords you will be ranking for will be related keywords to the main topic of your page.
  • Avoid trying to rank for two or more completely separate topics like local SEO and technical SEO. Stick to the rule of one main topic per page (always).
  • When in doubt about whether a specific keyword should be a separate topic for a separate page, do a Google search for it and check what’s ranking.
