How the Google Instant Scraper works:

  2. The Scraper gets results from Google Instant for that keyword. These are level 1 keywords.
  3. For each level 1 keyword, the Scraper gathers results from step #1 and adds them to the list. These are level 2 keywords.
  4. Repeat #2 and #3 for levels 3 and 4 keywords

Show Content Only Plugin – A Perfect Keyword Research Companion

Download the Plugin from WordPress.org

Another WordPress SEO Plugin by Katz Web Services

The Show Content Only Plugin enables you to show only a post or page’s content, without sidebars, footers, and other content.

There are many different reasons for wanting to show just the content, but there’s never been such an easy way to do it. This plugin adds a box in the post and page editor that provides you with four links:

  • Content Only
  • Content with Tags
  • Content with Categories
  • Content with Categories & Tags

This is very helpful in conjunction with the Google Keyword Tool, so that Google only analyses the content of your post or page, not the surrounding context as well.

A Great SEO Tool For Geo-Targeted Keyword Combinations

Save Time Creating SEO-Friendly Keyword Combinations

As an SEO, one of the things I do on a regular basis is come up with keyword permutations and combinations for many locations related to the corporations I am engaged with. What I often do is I use PHP scripting and create multiple arrays of keywords, locations, and services, then mix them up…similar to the SEO WordSpinner script.

There’s a great script that does this in an instant. It’s called the Local PPC Adwords & Keyword List Creator, and it does exactly what it sounds like it does.

One of the nice features of this tool is that it allows you to generate SEO-friendly keyword order combinations such as ‘Location Keyword’ & ‘Keyword Location’, saving lots of time. It’s a great tool for generating permutations for SEO and PPC. I recommend trying it out.

The keyword list creator will find all cities and zip codes surrounding the zip code you specify and generate a comprehensive list of geo-targeted SEO phrases.

Fun tip: specify a suffix of | and wrap it all up in {{ and }}, and you have yourself a formatted string for the SEO WordSpinner.

3 Simple Steps to keyword order SEO – Are your words SEO friendly?

Out of Order
Much search engine optimization revolves around guessing how users will search to find your site. When you’re optimizing for organic (non-paid) search results, you may be surprised to find out how much word order impacts the search ranking.

Optimize your website for organic search with varying keyword order

If you search the major search engines, you will find that the order of your keywords makes a huge difference on where your website ranks. Continue reading “3 Simple Steps to keyword order SEO – Are your words SEO friendly?”

Optimizing a website for search: Google vs. Yahoo! and MSN

Google remains the Search Engine King (Pie Chart)

When I think SEO, I think of Google. Why? Is it because Google’s PageRank system determines better websites? Is it because Google’s advertising options are superior? It’s as simple as this: Google gets better results than any other search engine.

The major search engines often don’t agree

Optimizing websites for search is frustrating sometimes. The biggest search engines are Google, Yahoo!, and MSN. The frustrating part of optimization is the variation between the search engines. The variations in ranking can be huge. I will use Katz Web Design’s ranking information to show some examples:

Google Yahoo! MSN Difference
Denver Web Designer 1 8 3 4
Lakewood Website Design 26 7 298 292
Web Design Denver 27 52 103 66
Denver Web Page Design 20 519 > 1000 Over 980!

So you see, there’s a crazy variation between the search engines that can be frustrating. My statistics show, however, that even a bad ranking in Google is better than a good ranking on any other search engine.

Ranking Update:

Since I wrote this post, my site has come up significantly in search results for the terms listed. As a result, the disparity of the results is much less than it had been. Here are the stats as of November 8, 2008:

Google Yahoo! MSN Difference
Denver Web Designer 3 3 2 1
Lakewood Website Design 359 120 96 263
Web Design Denver 27 11 18 16
Denver Web Page Design 24 2 3 22

92% of my organic keyword search traffic comes from Google

A vast majority of my traffic to my website comes from Google. What about my some of my clients?

Google % Yahoo % MSN % Google % Difference
Client A 83.1 6.6 7 76.1
Client B 85.9 6.73 5.74 79.17
Client C 70.4 20.37 0 50.03
Client D 80.4 8.1 8.0 72.3

These clients have similar ranking placement on Google, MSN, and Yahoo! for many of their keywords. You can see that even so, Google still sends an average of 69.4% more visitors to these websites. Optimizing for other search engines doesn’t have the same return on investment as optimizing for Google does. Google remains king.
