How keyword optimization continues to make my articles attract increasing numbers of views from Google—with screenshots

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 on my website stats, I was inspired by responses/comments from readers was inspired to write and publish this article.

We will take a look at nine screenshots which would prove how effective keyword optimization is, 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 the views 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 14+ days after the related article was published, Definition & types of technical drawing and 15 Reasons why You Should Study Environmental Science had been viewed a total of 2028 and 1,167 times, respectively—this represented a rise of 676 and 496 within 2+ weeks: 50% and 74% increase, respectively, in terms of the number of views.

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 the day of publication of this article, had been downloaded a total of 312 times: 174 and 138 times, respectively (see Screenshot 2 below), and 231 out of the 312 were downloaded within the first 6 days of September, 2019.

Definition & types of technical drawing, which used to attract between 30 and 50 views per day, later started attracting between 70 and 100+ views per day, mostly from Google. In fact, on September 4, 2019, it attracted 124 views even though I didn’t publish any article on that day (see Screenshot 3 below).

In August, 2019, Definition & types of technical drawing attracted 499 views, but within 6+ days of the following month (September, 2019) had already attracted 391 views (see Screenshot 4), and within one or two days, could beat the stats of last month; at the end of September, 2019, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these stats double, triple, or quadruple the stats of August. 2019.

When I started this site, even up to 2 years later, it was quite normal for my site to be referred by Google between five and ten times per month; but after using keyword optimization much later than 2 years, it became quite normal to wake up a few hours into a new day and see my site being referred 16 times by Google, and my most viewed article being viewed 21 times (see Screenshot 5).

My greatest motivation is my site’s Google Search Console report which showed that the average position of my site within the last seven days was 1.3 whenever the query “types of technical drawing” was made by Google users (see Screenshot 6).

Also, the average position of my site within seven days was 6.4 whenever the query “why study environmental science” was made by Google users (see Screenshot 7).

Generally, the top 5 queries that made my site to be highly referred by Google and viewed from Google within 7 days, were (see Screenshot 8):

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

The keywords that appear in Sceenshot 8 above (Google Search Console report) ring a bell and inform us exactly what some people are searching for on the World Wide Web. The same thing happens around other keywords outside the technical drawing and environmental science niches.

Generally, within the the past 7 days before this article was published, most visitors from Google came from the following countries (see Screenshot 9.):

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

Conclusion

From my experience within 8+ months (i.e., between January 1, 2019, and September 6, 2019), I would advise fellow bloggers to use keyword optimization if they want to easily attract readers (who belong to their niche) through Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, etc., from the internet world. I advise that fellow bloggers should search for keywords in their niches, and start using them, or continuously get more familiar with them.

If you are interested in increasing your site’s exposure, blog regularly, and use keywords which can be confirmed from Google/keyword tool; also, if you can, share the links of your content on other social media platforms. Furthermore, 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.net; if you do so, people who are interested could download your eBooks and continue to share them with the wider world which, over time, will likely continue to come in larger numbers to your site.

  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 WordPress.com, 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 WordPress.com… WordPress.com—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: https://motivation-environment.com/2019/08/21/how-keyword-optimization-made-my-article-attract-the-highest-number-of-views-and-rank-almost-1-on-google-screenshots-and-an-example/
