How do I choose the best Google SEO keywords?

For this page, I’ve chosen “Shopify app Google SEO keyword.” Choosing keywords to target requires a balance between a short keyword that you’ll never rank for and a long keyword that few people every type into Google. Good keywords are usually two or more words that describe the content on a page of your site. They are what you expect people would type into Google to find this page, and they need to be unique enough to stand out from your competitors.

Keyword Examples

Here are some examples of how I’d find keywords for this page.

SEO (too short)
SEO keywords (too general)

Shopify SEO Google keyword

Google searches are not case-sensitive and disregard punctuation and some symbols. You should also make your keywords singular. I used “keyword” instead of “keywords” since “keywords” contains the word “keyword.”

Next, it’s good to check your keywords by searching for them in Google. Our SEO app’s page in the Shopify app store comes up #3 for this keyword “Shopify app Google SEO keyword.” That shows that we have chosen a significantly specific keyword. Now we need to get this page ranking for this keyword.

Improving your keyword rank

Here are some things I’ll do to improve this page’s ranking for my keyword: Shopify app Google SEO keyword

Make sure your page is in your sitemap.
Try to only target one keyword per page.
Put the keyword in the page’s URL.
Put the keyword in the H1 title tag.
Put the keyword in your page’s description meta tag.
Mention the keyword a few times in the content. Don’t overdo it.

It’s going to take some time (about a week) for Google’s bots to crawl your site and find the updated content. You can check your sitemap to see if your new pages show up there. If you’re using Shopify, you won’t need to worry about this because Shopify generates sitemaps automatically.

To put your keyword in the H1 tag, just put it in a page’s title. Most theme templates will put a page’s title in an H1 tag. You can use our app to check all your site’s H1 tags.

To put your keyword in the description meta tag, make sure your keyword is in the first 160 characters of the page content. Most websites will take the first 160 characters and generate a meta tag. Our SEO app will also check the description meta tags. Here’s a link if you’d like to add our SEO app to your website.

Next, make sure to use your keyword in your content a few times. It’s not very easy to naturally fit “Shopify app Google SEO keyword” into a sentence, but do your best. Google will penalize sites that engage in “keyword stuffing.” This is when you use a keyword too many times in your content. I’d recommend fitting the keyword in about five times.
