Optimizing your “how to” article for SEO starts with effectively using keywords. After all, these are the words that both your readers and search engines will use to determine what your article is about. Spending a few minutes of time being deliberate about keyword selection can pay huge dividends. These articles are assets, and once you’ve invested the time to create them, they continue to pay rewards for as long as they remain on the web. Your selection of keywords will play a crucial role in determining how great those rewards will be.
