SBI! for WordPress Feature: See Where Your Keywords Have Been Used

We are going to explore a number of features and aspects of SBI! for WP in a series of posts. Today, we’re digging into Keyword Usage, and how you can use it to see where else your keyword has been used.

Keyword Usage is built into the SBI! for WordPress plugin. It is designed to help you identify the other posts within your blog where you have targeted the same focus keyword.

Each time you begin a new blog post, you’ll use SBI! for WP, and specifically, the SBI! for WP Keyword Insights widget to select a specific keyword to focus on. You can choose one from your Master Keyword List that you’ve already researched using the Brainstorm It! tool, or you can add a new keyword on the fly.


Once you’ve selected a focus keyword, you’ll be able to see if you’ve focused on that specific keyword within any other blog posts.

The Keyword Insights block will  tell you immediately how many times you’ve targeted that keyword, and the bottom block will show you which posts you’ve used it in:


In this example, I was editing a post entitled, “The Best Places to Get Blog Post Ideas” for which the focus keyword was ‘blog post ideas.’ As you can see, I had also targeted that keyword within “When To Kill Those Old Blog Post Ideas.”

Why Is Keyword Usage Important?

As you create more and more content around the most important keywords for your niche and audience, it will be increasingly difficult to remember every post published. Using this tab, you can quickly identify all of those posts.

First, your new blog post should take advantage of those older posts and link back to them whenever relevant. It’s common to write about increasingly advanced topics, which means it’s a great idea to link back to some of the more basic posts to help your readers catch up if it’s their first time on your blog.

Second, all of those older blog posts represent great opportunities to link forward to the new blog post, giving your readers a logical next step.

Finally, you can, at a glance, monitor how often you’ve targeted a specific keyword. This will help you make sure that you’re keeping your blog posts and content focused on your most important keywords, as well as prompt you to consider focusing on a different keyword, if you’ve already used a keyword many times.

Either way, using SBI! for WordPress, you can monitor your usage of each focus keyword and reveal opportunities to link your content. Such links will lead to more time on site for your readers, which in turn can mean more leads and sales.
