While Latent Semantic Indexing is a rather intimidating term, it is really quite simple, not nearly as threatening as it sounds.
What are LSI Keywords?
Simply put, LSI keywords are those which are commonly related to the keyword phrase that you have targeted for your article or post. Google’s search engine uses the presence of these words within your article to determine it’s relevance to the search term used.
How and Where Should LSI Keywords be Used?
Using as many as 20 to 30 of the LSI keywords within your post will highly improve your search engine page rank. You can use these words within your article, your meta tags, and image tags.
Assuming that you have chosen your primary keyword phrase, and that you have included that in your post title, as well as your first and last paragraphs, you’ll use these LSI keywords throughout the remainder of your post.
Where Can You Find Help With LSI Keywords?
There are many ways to come up with lists of these related LSI keywords. One way is to read through a couple of highly ranked eZine articles found at the top of the first page of Google’s searches results, and make a list of all of the words in that article which are related to the search term used.
Another method is using the Google Keyword External or Wonder Wheel tools. I’ve provided a little walk through video here, since many people still have not had much exposure to the Wonder Wheel.
