Mapping keywords to relevant web pages

Today and tomorrow are your last days of working with keywords.

There's one last task to be done — keyword mapping.

Keyword mapping is the process of assigning all the keywords you've found to relevant pages of your website. So a keyword map, in its most basic form, is a spreadsheet with your keywords and pages of your website that are relevant for these given keywords. Well, it was a spreadsheet before WebSite Auditor got a dedicated module that turns days of work into a few minutes.

WebSite Auditor helps you build these maps quickly and plan keyword distribution across your website wisely.

It's a very important step of your SEO Plan because without a proper keyword map you're likely to have the following issues in the future:

  • Pages that don't rank because they lack relevant keywords.
  • Different pages that rank for the same search query because the topic is the same or they are optimized for the same keywords (keyword cannibalization).
  • Unused keywords that are very cost-effective but you've missed them because they lack relevant pages to target with (content gap).
  • The same content appearing on more than one page of your website (duplicate content).

All the above can hurt your rankings, so it's definitely worth avoiding such unwanted scenarios by creating a keyword map.

Before you jump to the mapping in WebSite Auditor, let's first group your keywords by theme in Rank Tracker.

Here's how it's done:

  1. Go to the Keyword Sandbox module and select all the keywords that you deem profitable based on the SEO metrics, then right-click, and hit Move To Keyword Group.

Note

Yesterday, you filtered your keywords, and left only good ones. If you tagged low performing keywords rather than deleted them, make sure to adjust filtering settings accordingly so that you see only profitable keywords in your sandbox.
  1. Then click Create a new keyword group, and name it to your liking, e.g. "All Keywords". After that, these keywords will appear in Rank Tracker's Keyword Map submodule.
  2. Go to the Keyword Map submodule under the Target Keywords, and group your keywords thematically (right-click > Move To Keyword Group > Create a new keyword group). This will help organize your keyword mapping further on. For instance, if you have two pages — one selling Nike and the other Reebok sneakers, you might want to put relevant keywords for both pages into separate groups. You can also create keyword groups according to the search intent of the keyword.
Tip
You can automatically regroup your keyword groups according to different levels of semantic similarity, so you can focus on entire topics instead of individual terms, and easily manage and navigate through an uncluttered, organized workspace.

Moving next to keyword mapping in WebSite Auditor:

  1. As you've already grouped your keywords in Rank Tracker (don't forget to save your project), go straight to WebSite Auditor.
  2. Jump to the Keyword Map submodule under Content Analysis.
  3. Click Import from Rank Tracker and select your saved Rank Tracker's project. Also, if you need it, you can enter your keywords manually or add new ones later at any time.

  1. Once keywords are imported, you'll see a dashboard with your keywords, relevant pages of your site, and the information on their optimization rate, organic traffic, along with a list of their mapped and ranking keywords. To map a specific keyword or keyword group to the relevant page, pick a keyword or a keyword group, and the page you want to map it to, and click Map.

Tip
It's better to assign more competitive keywords to "stronger" pages like your homepage, for instance. And make sure to only assign keywords to semantically relevant webpages.
