What is the search status of words such as:
imitation flowers; artificial flowers; decorative flowers; fake flowers
Just wondering how these terms rate in your research.
First of all I went to your site and your flowers are absolutely beautiful.
I would never use the terms earthborn or handmade when searching for flowers. Personally, if I were looking to buy I would type in very specific keywords like artificial magnolia or silk magnolia (not knowing about wood flowers) because I want to buy Magnolias. In my experience, I have found the more specific the keyword phrase, the more targeted traffic I recieve more likely to turn into customers. I might suggest using the term silk alternative Magnolia. Your sight should show up for the person who is looking for silk flowers because most people are familiar with silk and don`t know there is wood. You are right if you stay as general as flower or florist you will be buried. But then you said there were only flower, florist and replica...
Vincent - thanks for the additional info. Another question.
Do you know the top 100 - 200 search words/terms visitors are now using to find your site? Your web stats should show you these. If so, can you share some of these?
Thanks - R@
I took a look at your source code on your home page and noticed that you don`t use any commas inbetween your key words. Maybe this is not a big deal but I was taught there must be commas otherwise the robots see these words as one phrase or word. Another suggestion - pick a word or words like silk flowers (or one you think is better) and plug it into the beginning of your meta key word list and test that for a month or so - see if you notice any change in hits or visits to certain pages.
Also, I checked your source on your "flower decor" page and the "wood flower" page and the meta keyword description was "contact elusive teasures san jose california". Shouldn`t you have speicfic key words on these pages and specific key words on all of the different pages?
I would do these meta key word changes on every page and then track results for at least a month. I think you`ll notice a difference.
PS - one more thought. Look at all of your page titles. I believe you can do a better job of describing each page - the title page description helps in searches, too.
In addition to all of the great comments above, these should help give you an idea as to how to use the keywords in your content.
