Question: What if one of our keywords is an acronynm such as SQF audits (Safe Quality Food audits)? Can we still use this as a main core keyword?
Answer: The customer is never wrong when it comes to SEO! So if your customers are searching for acronyms like SQF, then you have to optimize on those keyword patterns. However, be aware the some keywords / acronyms can have cross-meanings. For example, ASICs can mean both ASICS the running shoes and ASICS (Application Specific Integrated Circuits).
So in that sense, the customer will alert his or her search by adding “helper” words like ASIC running shoes vs. just ASICs. So, again, it is paramount to do research and understand how customers search (hence the need for a detailed keyword worksheet!).
