    1 or 2 high volume / competition keywords and unlimited long tail keywords, basically as much as i can get in the content of given webpage.
    I don't do anything specially for those long tail keywords, they will rank themselves, i am focusing on those couple high volume keywords.

    There are always a few big terms you want to rank for, but the majority of your traffic will come from the long tail keywords.

    One niche keyword for main web site. Then related keywords for content. after using related keywords you may use long tail keywords.

    How many keywords I will target, It depends on my website's size.But at first, I will target low competitive and long tail 1 or 2 keywords. After success, I will target more keywords with high competitive keywords.

    How many keywords will target for a new website, it depends on what is your website is about, what services you are serving or products you are selling.
    Then it comes to the keyword research before targetting keyword and some R&D for some keywords. Then target 2 or 3 keywords per page but maintain the keyword density in the content.
    For High Competitive Keywords, you have to do a lot of hard work to rank but low competitive or long tail keywords are easy to rank because they have the specific information about the particular.

    The exact number of keywords will depend on your budget, the size of your niche, how competitive it is and the timeframe for results. However, just like the folks above have mentioned, most people target 2-5 low to medium keywords for a start, if it's a small business.

    The ultimate number of keywords you can use is virtually limitless, but of course, this isn't practical, unless you have a limitless budget for that. Also, optimizing a keyword involves a lot of work and needs time, so you will have to consider all these while deciding how many keywords to optimize at a time in the beginning.


    I hope that helps

    Sure, if you do not have any SEO software like AHREFS or SEMRUSH then the simplest way I know is to type a keyword phrase into Google and see how many pages are found in the results. Anything over 400,000 is going to need more than an exact match domain to rank. Meaning, if you type in "weight loss" Google will show About 1,130,000,000 results. If on the other hand you search for "premier periodontics lexington ky" you will see About 52,900 results. To rank for the latter you can pretty much just buy a domain like Premierperiodonticslexington.com and put up a WP blog, do a few citations and social media profiles and that will be more than enough.

    First, I'll search keywords for my website and find out their search volume and competition. I can target 3-4 keywords according to their search volume and competition. If for one keyword my website ranks, that's good for me. Then I'll rank other keywords.
