Question: Not the actual keyword count, but the different keyword arrangments, like ball, beach ball, red beach ball, colorful beach ball… could that list go on forever?
question 🙂 do/can having customer testimonials or reviews help your Google rank?
Answer: Similar to what we discussed in class, you want a heavy keyword density in the page, and use NATURAL SYNTAX. So you can certainly have ball, beach ball, red beach ball, colorful beach ball to use your example. I would recommend NOT stringing them along in lots of commas, but rather interspersing them throughout your prose. Write complete sentences, as they told you in English class.
As for your second question: ABSOLUTELY. UGC (User Generated Content) is a fabulous way to generate lots of new content for Google, and for that content to be SEO-friendly, and keyword heavy. So anything you can do to automate the process is a great thing. Google liks BIG, BEEFY keyword heavy websites – so UGC can help you beef up your website on the cheap. Go for it!
