Question: What is the maximum amount of keywords you should use?
Answer: Successful SEO begins with KEYWORDS but you can have too many. In fact, that is a common beginner’s error. It’s all about focus. Your ‘home page’ is special, but on most other pages on your website a good rule of thumb is one ‘core keyword / family’ per page. If you are a personal injury attorney in San Francisco, for example, you should probably have individual pages focused on keywords like:
Each page should focus on one ‘concept.’ Focusing on both medical and auto, for example, will just confuse Google.
Your home page, however, is special. Put your company’s 7 most important keywords in the home page title tag. But to make a long story short – successful SEO is all about FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS when it comes to keywords!
