The 5 steps to an effective keyword strategy

It's worth the pain though, because it is - without question - THE most crucial stage in the development of effective web content. We'd never dream of putting pen to paper on some new web copy without going through a comprehensive (and yes, possibly quite tedious) keyword study.
