blogger URL structures
But now it is almost impossible to find a available match domain name as we want, so now what? Nothing to worry about! Search engines upgraded themselves a lot. They don’t need exact domain match to rate your website. So, what they need now?

Yes, they can track your every individual post URL to rate contents. All you need to be some extra careful when you are generating your post url.

I know blogger has automatically generate the url from your post title, but I am telling this for those who like to shorten their url or use some scripts to generate custom url. Please be noted, shorten url will not give you any positive SEO support at all.

Now let’s have a look at those examples:

www . mainkeyword . com/category-page-keyword [Perfect ]

www . mainkeyword . com/p?452 [Uncompleted]
URL structures variations
you can ask me, what will happen by this variation? See those examples carefully. From the first url You can easily figure out what this page about. But from the second one, you will not be interested to click on. Because you don’t even know what this page is about or what will be inside it!

This is the variation. A good url can easily convince you visitors to read your post.

It’s time to shrink your list. Remove the non-relevant phrases and those keywords which have a very small search count from the list. Be extra careful in this step, don’t lose any important keywords.

6. Determine Competitiveness
Have look on your list again. Some keywords are generating high search count and also have high competition. Then some keywords are generating average search count and have fairly competition. Think those factors and decide which way you wants to go with, high competition and high search count or else? Take your time. My suggestion is select keywords that have average search count but competitions are low.
