Have keywords become a new reference about the zeitgeist? Hard to refute. What’s true is that keywords have become a currency that helps transactions between users and web-facing businesses. The business of making a name, or a term alluding to a more complex concept, rise above must not be taken for granted. Millions of users every day look for information online, building a query out of their pressing concern. Figuring out how to provide the answer by offering exactly the content they are looking for; or better yet, figuring out how to become the answer, and let them look for you; it’s the coal mine of the New Normal.
