As competition for the top spot on google search engines becomes more and more heated, companies are taking to keywords as a means to save the day and get ahead and it’s having adverse effects on their rankings. Don’t get me wrong, keywords are great, keywords are important, keywords are absolutely necessary, however there is such a thing as overkill. Use your keywords too often and google will not respond kindly as you are impeding on user experience, no one wants to read the same few words over and over again, it’s most likely not good for the readability of your articles and google knows exactly what you are doing.

Most importantly, do your research. Find out what keywords your target audience are searching for, narrow it down, be specific and offer up high-quality content 100% of the time.
