You can see from these examples that it takes only minutes to keyword-optimize your articles for search engine placement. With practice, this process becomes easier.

Writing for the web is different from writing for print publications and writers do well to learn basic search engine keyword placement so that their online articles, via the help of the search engines, ultimately meet up with a larger audience.

To illustrate: if you had a box of index cards, you would label them so that you could see at a glance what the cards contained. Using the labels you would organize the cards, without stopping to read everything on all the cards. In like fashion, a search engine will key in on keywords in your article. If placement of these keywords includes strategic locations, your article is easier to index because the keywords are markers as to what the article is about.
I’ve bolded the keywords in this article so that you can see where they appear. Try to pretend, for a minute, that you are a search engine looking for each keyword. Now, run your eyes over the page.
