What The Heck Is a Diversity Keyword?

March 10, 2015

Diversity keywords are a new feature that were added to Link Emperor in 2015.  While they may sound fancy, they're pretty simple.
 
The purpose of diversity keywords is to make your link building appear much more natural in the eyes of the search engines.  
 
According to Google, the majority of searches typed by users are unique searches that have never been searched before.  While most internet marketers tend to focus on a few small keywords, if you do your SEO right most of your traffic will come from random long search phrases.
 
The same can be said for anchor text in link building.  In the "real world", anchor texts are widely varied and quite random.  Sure, some will contain the main keyword of your topic or the words from the headline of your page, but most will contain a very wide variety of words.
 
This brings us to Google's famous "Penguin penalty".  This penalty took advantage of the fact that most lazy SEOs promoted their pages using an unnaturally small set of anchor texts.  Many pages had a simply too tightly focused set of keywords in their anchor texts.
 
On Link Emperor, Diversity Keywords are used as anchor text when building links to your pages.  We will still use the actual Money Keywords as anchor text sometimes, but not nearly as much as we will use diversity keywords.
 
We recommend that you add at least 100 diversity keywords per topic.  Diversity keywords can be long and in many cases can be entire sentences. 
 
The way we typically build lists of diversity keywords is to Google the keywords in the topic and then look at what ranks on the top 5 pages.  Look at the titles and also look at the content on the pages.  Then write literally every search that comes to mind.  Go nuts.  Think of questions that are answered by the content on the pages you've found.
 
You can't go too wrong here as long as these diversity keywords are plausibly related to your topic.
