One of the most common mistakes business owners make is thinking that there’s some single magic key word or phrase that they must dominate. But that just isn’t how search works anymore. Why? Because today, people are more likely to use natural language as they type or dictate to Siri. So instead of typing a short phrase like furnace repair, they’re more likely to ask “Who can I call to replace my furnace?” or “Why is my furnace making a funny sound?”
As you think about your keywords, think about natural language and how people are more likely to talk when they’re looking for a business like yours.
KEY TAKEAWAY: Use natural language on your website for best search engine results.
