“Welcome to LSI hell, folks” – BakedJake –

So the last thing was pretty worthless, so I figured I’d take a little time and comment on the new bane of SEO existence. It isn’t really NEW per se…we’re just starting to see it in action more with the new Google update. Most SEO’s realize this trend is only going to continue…the simple essence is if you want to rank for “internet marketing consulting”, you are going to have to use lots of other related words in order to prove to the SE’s that you are really about what you say you are about, and not just a dirty keyword stuffer. For the above mentioned phrase, most of the words on this site are good for the “theme”…search engine optimization, internet advertising, pay-per-click, all may be seen in the same theme as internet marketing consulting. This applies to anchor text as well as on page factors. I’m sure I’ll be commenting on this more in the near future, since this is going to be the hotbed of SEO conversation for quite some time. If you have any good ontology tools…be sure to e-mail me;) In the meantime, heres some of the latent semantic indexing/ latent semantic analysis resources I’ve been perusing

Wow…this stuff makes my bleed from the ears…I wish I could still just buy ROS text links and rank high:)

    Funny that you should mention that…

    I have a product under development that solves that exact problem. Given a keyword or keyphrase, it uses text mining technology to fetch documents off the Internet and extract and correlate keywords and keyphrases. That way, you have a “latent semantic index” of keywords that are thematically similar to your original keyword or keyphrase. Optimize your site using most (if not all) of the keywords listed, and your site is optimized against search engines using LSI techniques to enable concept searching.

    To use your example, I ran my program against “internet marketing consulting. Here are the results.

    I’m not sure yet what I’m going do with the product. I might sell it as a service rather than a stand-alone product…
