1- The Voice Search
The first tip we will talk about in these 3 advanced on-page SEO tips is the voice search and the way we should write the keyword. As we go forward, the voice search becomes more popular, and the difference is that people try to use comment words to search rather than saying just the keywords.
For example, if someone looks for fast food in Los Angeles, the phrases will be different in writing and voice search as shown below:
- Writing: Best Fast foods in Los Angeles
- Voice search: What are the best fast foods in Los Angeles?
This way the keywords, will look a bit different. So it would be best if you planned for these types of keywords to have a higher chance of ranking in the future.
2- LSI Keywords
The next thing on advanced SEO is to use LSI Keywords but first, what is the LSI keyword?
LSI keyword is called to the words or phrases which have a connection to the focus keyword.
For example, if our page focus keyword is “electric car,” then we can consider the list below as LSI keywords, and we must use them inside our content:
- Combustion engine
- Green energy
As you can see, these words are not a synonym of the focus keyword but are somehow connected to the main topic. This way, search engines understand that your page is really about the focus keyword you selected, and you have a higher chance of ranking.
To find the best LSI keywords connected to the focus keyword you selected, a tool can help you prepare your list.
LSI search is an additional tool from Keysearch.co which is completely FREE.
