I offer a suggested title. You have the option of offering an alternate title that employs a keyword or keywords. If you chose to write this, place this at the beginning of the piece, labeled "TITLE," if needed for clarity.
If you supply five keywords. I prefer that you use all five. Place the keywords that you used at the end of the piece, labeled as "KEYWORDS:..."
SUMMARY (META DESCRIPTION FOR GOOGLE)
Please include a Meta Description of 150 characters or less. This is for the "Meta Description" that displays when the article shows up in web search, such as a Google search result. 150 Place this at the end of the piece labeled as "META: ..."

On-Page Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Boosts Page Ranking via Buyer Keywords
We especially want to get a high search ranking for what I call "buyer keywords," which are the search phrases used by prospective customers trying to find a company like MediaFirst.
On-Page Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
It can boost your page ranking, increase website visitor traffic, and attract the right web visitors, buyers. Getting web traffic is not enough, selecting "buyer keywords" and integrating these into your content helps your page rank in your market niche. This allows you to rank well for the organic searches that matter; the ones that attract buyers.
Our staff will pick and place the right keywords in page titles, bulleted lists, headings (for example, h1, h2, h3). These buyer keywords can be placed with keyword density and tags, on each page of your website, so that search engines know what your website is about.
