How to choose keywords for SEO.

Start by looking at the Google Keyword Tool. Type a keyphrase in the box, check off the box labeled “Only show ideas closely related to my search terms”, and search. Then in the left sidebar uncheck Broad and check [Exact], then click Search again.

This tool will give you an approximation of how many times that keyword is searched for in a month.  It will also show you related search phrases.  Between these two you can decide which keywords to target in your site.  Go for the top ten or so.

In general, try not to get “greedy”. For example, if your website sells vintage Schwinn bicycles, your keyphrases should be like “Schwinn bikes”, “vintage Schwinn” and not just the generic “bikes”.  This is because chances are that someone searching for “bikes” will not be much interested in buying a vintage Schwinn bike.

"Julian at Crunch42 was a tremendous asset in the setup of my company website. He worked in a very professional and courteous manner, and always kept me informed of his progress. Furthermore, he constantly kept me involved in the development of the website, welcoming and considering any feedback I had to give. The end result was a website that contained the functionality that I required as well as the aesthetic that I wanted. I am very happy with the website that Julian developed for my business, and I would recommend Crunch42 to anyone looking for a high quality website at a reasonable cost."
