SEO Keyword Requirements
The content must appeal to the human audience first, being interesting, informative, and valuable. With that in mind, Lynn researches the best keywords or key phrases based on the audience searches. She selects a primary, or focus, keyword/phrase, and uses it in the first paragraph of the body text. She uses the keyword/phrase with heading tags (H1, H2), and incorporates the keyword/phrase judiciously into the rest of the text, avoiding excessive repetitions or illogical use, which can harm SEO. She makes sure all photos are optimized and have an alternate tag with the focus keyword/phrase, which she also uses in the title, the URL and the custom-crafted meta description.
Lynn writes effective Title and Meta Descriptions based on the content of the article or page, using a focus, or primary, keyword or phrase. The title is the first thing people see in the search engine results, so it needs to be accurate and clear, using the keyword or phrase. The meta description is a short piece that entices people to click through from search results, so it has to state, in a few words, the compelling reason they should visit the site for more information.

Once the copy is written, she uses headings (H1, H2, H3) and bullet points where necessary to enhance the SEO and readability. She determines a focus keyword or phrase for the page, and incorporates it the ideal number of times and locations to increase SEO success. She also crafts a title and meta description, with the focus keyword or phrase, that will encourage searchers to click through, and ensure the copy has an appropriate readability level and is the best length for the purpose.
