The guidelines Web Writers need to know about Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) will help you get through the learning curve for writing online articles, especially if you have previously written for print media.
A wealth of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tips are on the Internet, but LSI is not as easily found or understood.
Latent Semantic Indexing is a powerful online writer tool that will help the search engines list your article in the correct position. LSI is similar to having human eyes compare content and index it among other articles that highlight the same SEO keyword.
In essence, LSI scans for quality information vs. repetitive SEO keyword use.
Isolate your main SEO keyword. Make a list of related words that will help promote your article with the search engines. LSI also serves to keep Web Writers from "stuffing" keywords into an online article.
After you've made your list, you will scatter several of the related words you've selected throughout your article.(About 10 LSI words are enough.)
Let's assume you are writing an online article where your main SEO keyword is married. Some related LSI words might be: spouse, couple, partner, love, husband, wife, etc.
Using the example, you can readily see that correct Latent Semantic Indexing is not about synonyms. It is about related words that would come to mind when studying your main SEO keyword and the content included in your online article.
The answer to any question about Google is G.O.K. (God only knows!). Why? Because Google is not known to share how they rank articles for placement.
However, for the past few years LSI has reportedly been the "new" keyword and proper use will enhance your article's chance of a higher ranking.
Here is a little known secret for finding a list of related words for your SEO keyword and content.
This symbol ~ is a tilde. Open Google and type ~married in the search box. Scan the online articles and put particular attention on bolded words. These are related words, which have been blessed by Google, for your LSI use.
Here are a few results for ~married I found on the first page alone: person, woman, man, couple, bliss and happiness.
Referring to these handy guidelines will help you as a web writer, learn what you need to know about Latent Semantic Indexing.
