When it comes to Search Marketing “keywords”, your search traffic is going to come from either strong high traffic keywords or a large amount of “long tail” keywords.

Google Wants a Whole Site

The greatest difficulty I have is explaining to clients the “Whole Site Concept” that Google currently is looking for.
