Separate the keywords of my keyphrase

  • Hello, I just switched from Yoast to your plugin but I have a doubt about keywords.
    In Yoast there was a field called “Keyprhase” and for example, talking about this product here ->

    I was using the following keyphrase: Radiant white tape sectional hula hoop

    You use a different approach where I can both use a single keywords, both use multiple words as keywords.

    This mean that I could use the following keywords:
    [1] -> Radiant white tape sectional hula hoop
    [2] -> Sectional hula hoop tape
    [3] -> Hula hoop tape
    [4] -> Radiant hula hoop tape

    Would this make sense or would be better to use just the [1] as single keyword?

    Thank you,

  • Hello,

    In my opinion, the best option would be to use option 1 since it is a long-tail keyword.

    What does it mean? It is easier to rank on Google. And Google is smarter enough to detect that 2, 3, and 4 options are part of the option 1, so Google can rank your website for any of those terms.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Grazie Alberto 🙂
    I will go with the long-tail one, but the recommendation of 5 keywords, is also valid for the long-tail keywords?
    In other words, can I add 5 long-tails keywords?

    If the answer to the first question is yes, I’m not sure how to behave about 2 having 2 long-tails keywords that have something shared.

    Just as an example, if my long-tail keywords is something like

    Radiant white tape sectional hula hoop

    would be wrong to add an other long-tail keywords like this as second keyword

    coloured hula hoop for festival

    or would be better to create a singular long-tail keywords as sum of the two, something like:

    <>Radiant cloured white tape sectional hula hoop for festival

    Thank you so much for your help, I appreciate a lot.


    The quick answer is yes, you can add several long-tail keywords. But let me explain it in detail.

    Several years ago, Google’s algorithm was less complex. It searched for keywords and that was all. If you posted, let’s say the keyword “computer”, all over a post, Google would rank your post for the keyword “computer”. And it would rank less or more according to your Page Rank.

    Now, Google is way more complex. It now “understands” the content. So that is how it will be able to rank your post for the long keywords and the short keywords (the ones that create the long keywords).

    But, again, it is just a search engine. Not a human. So you should try to create a post per keyword you want to rank. So if you want to rank “Radiant white tape sectional hula hoop”, you should create a post for that keyword.

    Since it contains the other keywords (“Sectional hula hoop tape”, “hula hoop tape”…), it might rank for them, since Google can detect them.

    But you should try to not rank for several different keywords in the same post, at least if they are different (like different products or so).

    I recommend you to read this post to learn a lot about and how to use them:

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thank you Alberto, I’m reading it! 😀
