  • Also check the competition of the keyword which you are using like Short, medium, long tail keywords.
  • Choose Competitor Permalinks Website and include that keyword in your website

For example, there are 2 websites A and B contains keywords that make up a search term as “Seo Questions” and site A has title as “Seo Interview Questions ” and site B has title “Important Seo Question” then proximity of site B is higher as compared to site A as there is no distance between search term and individual terms.
