How to make Your Research Articles more visible on Search Engines and making the Most use of your Research Articles

Introduction

A keyword is a word or concept of great significance. It is also seen as a significant word mentioned in an index.

Search engines index whatever kind of post you make online by keywords. This explains why publishers always require one to include 4-6 keywords in the submission of research articles or manuscripts for publication. These keywords are often included when posting such accepted article to enable search engines index that article when these keywords are mentioned. The importance of this practice cannot be overemphasized since search engines and its algorithm is unbiased – it works centrally by keywords, complemented by backlinks and Domain/Page Authority.

Search engines indexing systems work mostly by keywords, except for google whose algorithm appears to be more complex than traditional search engines. Google added some algorithms that do not just rank a page/contents by keywords, but by other external factors like backlinks, the volume of web traffic and Domain/Page Authority. This they did to curb dark practices of SEO hackers. SEO hackers simply fill a page with a particular keyword – usually hidden from human eyes.

Keys to Making Your Articles Seen by Search Engines

  1. Choose Appropriate keywords for your research articles.
  2. Choose keywords that are in line with your Title.
  3. Restructure title of research articles to contain the keywords. Research titles should carry at least two keywords in the work.
  4. Make sure the central keyword appear in every paragraph if possible.
  5. Choose Keywords that can also be found on your abstracts.
  6. Use keywords that carry the central idea of the research article.
