What’s Are The LSI Keywords?

“The LSI keywords are the related phrases of “targeted keywords’ industry”

Here Is The Simplification !!!!

If the word called  “LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing)” is your targeted keyword then it’s related phrases are ‘ahref SEO tool’  ‘LSI graph‘ ‘content marketing’ these are related phrases of your keyword.   

If you want to know more about this Algorithm & how it works, please check Wikipedia


Are LSI Key Words Are The Long Trail Keywords?

The answer is No!!!!!

LSI keywords are not long-tail keywords. Somehow they are related to each other.

Moreover, LSI keywords broaden the search volume of the targeted keywords; whereas, ‘Long trail’ keywords are narrowed down to the specific search result.

If the targeted keyword is “weight loss“.

The LSI keywords will be– keto diet, fat loss, Tabata training, low carb diet, etc, Cardio exercise training, Home gym instrument, etc.

The Long-Trail keywords will be- Weight loss diet, Weight loss diet for men or women, Weight loss benefits, Step by step weight loss guide, weight loss supplement, etc.

Are LSI Key Words Are The Synonym Of The Targeted Keyword?

The Answer Is No!!!!!

It’s Little Bit Confusing To Me!!!!


Simply LSI keywords are the phrases that are closely related to the topic.

It may be a synonym, but, it’s not necessary, every LSI keywords need to be the synonym words.

Suppose you are searching for the keyword “Lean muscle Gain“.

The LSI keywords will be– High-intensity training, low carbohydrate diet, Weight lifting training, Home gym instrument, High fiver foods, High Protein, etc.

The Synonym keywords will be- Fat loss, Lean muscular body, mussel gain, etc.

What Is LSI Optimization?

LSI optimization is an On-Page SEO technique. Google SERP shows users the most relevant quality content.

 helps in such a way-

Google crawler gets more clear about the content topic & how broadly the content writer covers the content. Moreover, it boosts the search engine ranking factor.

It helps to find your webpage how relevant to the search query, your site will be shown on the SERP for the bigger search query.

Why So? Importance of LSI Keywords For SEO Ranking Factor

Before the last four Google algorithm updates, the crawlers used to found the content or the page topic based on ‘keyword density’.

That means If I’m posting content on the “digital marketing” topic & my keyword density is 30% that means my page is most relevant for the “Digital marketing” search query.

That’s why early days many webmasters make fool Google & rank their content on the 1st page of SERPs.

Google had changed it algorithm.

Now a day’s Google more focuses on the LSI keywords. These LSI words help Google to understand the overall topic/ content of the page.

Based on these keywords Google gets more confident of the content to show it according to the search query.

If you use LSI keywords with the main word then it will help you to avoid keyword stuffing.      

That’s why Google can penalize your content!!!!!

Must check Keyword density is less or equal to 4%.

Use enough LSI words & synonyms   

What the heck Keyword Density???????

Keyword density is the percentage of targeted keyword use in the content.

Here is the more simplification!!!!!!

(Targeted keyword / Total word count of the content)*100.

If the targeted word is “SEO” & it’s repeated on the content 50 times & total no of word count 1000.

Then keyword density is—(50/ 1000)*100 = 5%.
