Key Word Tool

Write Speak Sell – Social media enthusiast: helping organizations leverage social media to burnish their brands, increase their revenues and engage employees as brand advocates.

I just discovered a new tool to learn the rankings of key words you are searching. It’s called LSI Keywords.com.  From How it Works: “This tool searches the top 10 in Google for a phrase you like to rank highly for. Then it collects all the text from these 10 result pages and calculate the most used words and phrases on these pages. It then orders them by number of times used. With this data you know exactly why these pages rank highly in Google. It’s all about theming and using LSI Keywords.” You will see your key phrase in the top ranking pages, and how often your key phrase is being used in the top search engine results. It searches every sentence, titles, H1-H3, image alt tags, Meta-keywords and Meta-description.

Here is how a sample query result looks for “executive media training.”  If you go the site there is a video by a user that describes just how it works.

4 Great Tools for Boosting Your Site to the Top of Google

People are always looking for ways to get their blogs higher up in the search engine rankings.

Today, I want to recommend a few tools for this purpose.

1.  Alicia Smith sent along the “Cherry Picker” tool yesterday for finding niche markets.  The tool is free, and it is great.  Go here to get it:  http://bit.ly/aLbODS

2.  I recommend grading your website using http://websitegrader.com.  The site will grade your website (0-100) to tell you how strong your site is and to give you suggestions on how to improve your site.  My http://beafields.com site ranked 95, and Jeannette Paladino’s site ranked a whopping 97!  So, check that out.

3.  Look at hiring someone like Eric Cook.  He is an SEO master and also designs websites…AND he designs website with SEO in mind. (He’s also fun and cute!)  I also recommend Nina East. She really knows how to build a blog and can get your blog tweaked and moving in the direction of more hits from Google.

4.  SEO Pressor:  This tool is fabulous!   Tis a simple yet powerful WordPress plugin that you simply install and activate, and then the magic happens… You tell the plugin what keyword you were trying to rank for on all your existing posts, and it then gives you a score out of 100 – the higher the score the better your SEO efforts.  It is not free.  It does come with a cost, but I do think it’s worth it!

So, get out there today and start hitting it!

And…don’t forget…the Become a Blogging Maniac Course is coming again starting next Monday, August 2.  We will be offering a large number of tools just like these 3 to help your blog become well known to the public.

Write Popular Eye-Grabbing Posts Using a New Firefox Plug-In: SEO Blogger

A great new add-on for Firefox has changed my life!  This information was sent along by Roger DeWitt (http://coachingnyc.com)

SEO Blogger gives you the ability to write a post and have Wordtracker tell you what hot keywords are out there in the world of the web. You can of course then add these keywords to your blog to make it really pop.

Get the full story here.

Here’s a screenshot of what it looks like. You simply install the plug-in, and when you to go write a post, you will see a little “W” in the right side of your bottom taskbar. Click on the “W”, and the SEO Blogger opens. Then…post away using great keywords!
