    Keywords are important in a post, but not always! I’ve many posts which doesn’t even rank in top SERPs and have no competition what so ever to same keywords/phrases.
    Getting back link to such keywords may help but still not so sure about it.

    Anyway nice article. ;)

      Keywords are still important because the search crawlers and search engine spiders are but mere software that search the Internet to build a database of indexes which will be use to rank search terms. I agree though that backlinks are powerful indicates to the search engines but again then , backlinks to what key search terms? The search engine must use some means to associate what the user type in the search box to the what it will return to the user.

    Thanks for the tip. This is very helpful. I was really confused on the density of keyword. For now on, I will use 3%-5% on my post.

    its really a big help for the beginners…cause in the beginning its difficult to know each n every thing…

    Keywords were important earlier. But few month back Matt said that Google is no longer considering meta keywords while indexing. But still using keywords within content works.

    When I post a blog, within a few second the article ( link) is searchable in google. But after few days like 1 or 2 days it comes down. Hope you will write about this as well in ur next blog.

    Keywords are only part of the equation. Anyway, it is always a good practice to pay attention to keywords so that you can are more likely to get rank and index by the search engines. On the other hand, the practice of using relevant keywords have the negative effects of causing you to join the herd whereby new keywords are not explored and might result in loss of opportunity. For instance, there might be some long tail keywords or even the main keywords that are not highly competitive but which shows signs of increasing trend. If you try to stick to popular keywords only, you might miss on the early boat for new keywords which you can rank for highly since you are the early birds to include that in your article titles.

    @harsh 1st of all great post, no doubt it that! now i have a query..i have seen many post in many other popular blogs like tech crunch and many more blogs where they use 2-3 keywords in post URL and different title in post title [] plus different keywords in post title. so is it good to use three different title in a post? as i never seen that in SML post [might be am wrong].
