This article is meant to inspire people who are interested in keyword optimization, and who believe in it. The article serves as an update on a previous article, and a source of motivation for web publishers and bloggers who aspire to always continue growing their sites. Last time I published a post on how keyword optimization shot my keyword-optimized articles to the top of my website stats, I was inspired by responses/comments from readers, and this is what has further inspired me to write and publish this article about 3 hours into today, September 6, 2019.

We will look at nine screenshots that prove how effective keyword optimization can be, and how it can attract high return on investment in terms of increasing number of views and eBook downloads mostly from people who have been referred from Google.

A brief look at the stats of two of my articles that have been the most viewed, especially from Google

When I published a related article on August 21, 2019, my most viewed article Definition & types of technical drawing had been viewed 1,352 times, with over 70+% of this coming from Google within 6+ months prior; in addition, my article 15 Reasons why You Should Study Environmental Science had been viewed 671 times within 8+ months prior.

But as at today (screenshot 1), and within the past 14+ days since the related article was published, Definition & types of technical drawing and 15 Reasons why You Should Study Environmental Science have risen and been viewed a total of 2028 and 1,167 times respectively—a rise of about 676 and 496 within the last 2+ weeks: 50%, and 74% increase respectively.

Because of interest from my readers who have been coming from Google, I was motivated to produce two eBooks (one of them has been revised once, while the other has been revised 4 times) which, as at today, have been downloaded a total 312 times: 174, and 138 times respectively (screenshot 2); 231 out of the 312 were downloaded just 6+ days into this month.

Definition & types of technical drawing, which used to attract between 30 and 50 views per day, now attracts between 70 and 100+ views per day, mostly from Google. In fact, on September 4 it attracted 124 views, even though I didn’t publish any article that day (see screenshot 3).

Last month, Definition & types of technical drawing attracted 499 views, but within 6+ days of this month has already attracted 391 views (see screenshot 4), and within one or two days, could beat the stats of last month. By the end of this month, I won’t be surprised to see the stats double, triple or quadruple the stats of last month.

When I started this site, even after 2 years, it was quite normal to be referred only anywhere between five and ten times from Google per month; but now, it’s quite normal to wake up a few hours into a new day and see that my site has been referred 16 times from Google, and my most viewed article viewed 21 times (screenshot 5).

My greatest motivation is my site’s report from Google search console, which shows that the average position of my site within the last seven days has been 1.3 whenever the query “types of technical drawing” is made by Google users (screenshot 6).

Also, the average position of my site within the last seven days has been 6.4 whenever the query “why study environmental science” is made by Google users (screenshot 7).

Generally, the top 5 queries that have made my site to be highly referred and viewed from Google within the past 7 days have been (screenshot 8):

  • types of technical drawing
  • why study environmental science
  • technical drawing
  • different types of technical drawing
  • why do we study environmental science.

I guess these keywords ring a bell, and inform us exactly what a section of users are searching for on the internet. The same thing happens around other keywords outside the technical drawing niche.

Generally, most of the visitors from Google within the last 7 days have been coming from the following countries (Screenshot 9.):

  • Philippines
  • Nigeria
  • India
  • United States
  • Guyana
  • United Kingdom

From my experience within the past 8+ months or so, and especially within the last two weeks—which included further optimization of my most viewed posts by linking them to other articles, and creating two downloadable eBooks—I can only advise fellow bloggers to use keyword optimization if they want to easily attract readers (who belong to their niche) from the wider internet world via Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, etc. It may be advisable to search for the keywords in your niche and start using them, or get more familiar with them.

If you are interested in increasing your site’s exposure, it is advisable that you blog regularly, use keywords which can be confirmed from Google/keyword tools, and share the links of your content on other social media platforms—if you can. However, in addition to these, you can expose your site much more by producing downloadable eBooks which you can upload for free on your website and other popular eBook websites such as PDFdrive and Slideshare. Why? So that people who are interested can download them and continue to share them with the wider world which will likely continue to come in larger numbers to your site over time.

  1. You are doing an awesome job & it’s so inspiring to read about your blog’s growth 😃😃

    I have a small question for you. How to use WordPress tags efficiently? In the beginning, I used to add tags just like Hashtags on Instagram but now I’ve limited the number of tags on wordpress.

    What’s your take on this?

    1. thanks for your inspiring comment; I deeply appreciate it…as per how to use tags efficiently, I would advice that you go to Google and type the main keyword you would like to write your article about: for example, if you want to write about technical drawing, then go to Google and type “technical drawing”; you will notice questions, like “what are the types of technical drawing”, “what is technical drawing”, etc, appear further beneath the search box… you could produce a post addressing some or all of these questions; but make sure the main keywords (technical drawing, definition, types, etc.) are in the title of the article… after you do this, put the following in your tags: “types of technical drawing”, “definition of technical drawing”, etc.—put an optimum number; as much as necessary; but neither too little, or too much. Don’t strain yourself; go with what is available…

      Regarding the number of tags, put as few as necessary even if few means 10 or more; this depends on the scope of what you are writing about…

  2. Your first post on this subject really got my interest. I tweaked my site in line with the helpful knowledge I got from the post and further research online. The logic of keyword optimization makes absolute sense, but I guess it requires some patience especially with new sites. I also intend to further study this follow-up post to learn more.,

    Once again, infinite thanks to you for sharing very helpful posts that finds useful application with everyday life. God bless you Mr Ihagh.

    1. GOD bless you too… thanks alot for your encouraging words; sincerely appreciate them… use keywords and be patient…if you really want to go much further outside, then use keywords and promote your site and wait for the results…my articles have taken 5, 6, or more months to peak even when I didnt promote them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other platforms… I don’t really promote my articles outside…—and especially Google which I have no relationship with—have been doing that for me… the basis of getting good exposure on Google is by freely using longterm keyword optimization strategies—or paying for slots, which costs money and might still not be able to keep articles high up on Google after a period of time…keywords could get and keep you there


    1. thanks alot for your positive remark… when you want to publish, put your tags beneath “categories”…both categories tags are located at the right hand side bar when preparing new posts, or editing previously posted ones.


      1. Yeah.. I hv seen… But I hv added the categories like this :educational, imagination, poem, short stories, motivational..

        But how can I give the keywords of my blog posts? Suppose, I hv written about trees… Shall I add another category under educational and should mention trees there?.. Please let me know. In this case.. Numbers of categories and sub categories will become huge..

        1. you don’t need to add any category. whenever you want to prepare a new post just place your tags in the tag box…you can leave your posts uncategorized… the tags are more important than the categories. categories are just to direct or help web visitors to your libraries of different subjects


            1. yes, I think so…but, I can only speak for my phone…you will have to press the “settings” symbol somewhere at the top of the phone screen… the settings symbol looks like a small “almost” round black wheel…


  3. Thank you for the post! I used keywordtool for a bit and I think it might have had a slight impact. I will have to get better at optimising the keywords based on the articles I am writing. Not so certain what to use for my short stories, however…

    1. you’re welcome… thanks for your encouraging comment…you can still use keywords for your short stories in the title, or a little bit in the body, even if the body doesn’t have subtitles…I don’t know much about the number of words required for short stories, but if the short stories are let’s say 100 or 200 words, then use the keyword in the title, and probably once or twice within the body of the story…and you may have to do a little research and find out what your competitors who are on top of Google positions are doing, and find a way to tune your writings/work so they can be a bit better; personally I believe there will always be a way to make content much more informative, useful and better … results (in terms of views attracted) might not show up immediately or soon, but the will be bound to show up on the long run…

    1. thank you Florence; many appreciations for your kind words… you are right: one just has to follow the steps, be consistent and patient… people out there are actually succeeding with it; it’s the language that Google and many other search engines understand and operate with

        1. First, I would like to inform you that keyword optimization is not necessary: it is not a rule that must be followed…however, if you interested in knowing about it, then read this particular article and an article via the link at the upper part of this article, which is this:
          Thank you.
