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.
