Hello robeva1,

It is the goal of many webmasters to get listed for various keyword searches. Before you decide on specific keywords you would like your website to list for, make sure you take into consideration what the competition is, as well as how much work you are able to do to make it happen.

There are millions of websites on the Internet which makes some keyword phrases more competitive than others. There is a huge amount of competition for the keyword "cars", whereas the keyword phrase "used Saturn car sales Austin Texas" carries far less competition. Many companies will enlist the services of specialists to help them in the pursuit of more competitive keywords and search engine optimization in general.

One thing you can do to check the competition for a keyword is to use a free keyword research tool such as Wordtracker. When you enter your keyword and click "Hit Me" you will see the top 100 searches including that keyword, and the approximate number of searches per day.

If you do some research and find keywords or phrases you would like to try to list for in the search engines, here are a few strategies to get started:

1. Only focus on one or two keywords on each page of your website.
2. Write keyword rich title, description, and keywords tags for each page of your site. If you click on Page > Page Properties, you will find fields to add unique tags to each page of your site. Please see the related links for more information on this topic.
3. Write good content and make sure the keyword/s are in the visible text on the page. Don't stuff the keywords into the page, blend them in so your page reads comfortably.
4. If your business is local to a geographic area, make sure to mention your location in various places throughout your website.

As always, there is never any guarantee that a website will list for specific keyword searches; but these suggestions will give you a place to start.

It is very important to note that search engine optimization (SEO) is a lengthy and on-going process, and results can never be guaranteed. Many people find that driving traffic to their site using search engine marketing (SEM) is extremely beneficial to their business goals.
