Actionable Guide to Doing Better Semantic Keyword Research

At a high level, you want to make sure that you are creating high-quality content that delights your users, paying close attention to searcher intent. Mapping content to personas and categorizing keyword as navigational, transactional, or informational may also help with this endeavor.

After that, keywords on your website should be semantically related, not necessarily on the page level. To help with this, start thinking about your website in terms of related topical buckets. One of your goals should be to have the search engines perceive your site as an authority for each one of of those topical buckets.

This isn't actually the best part of this post by +Paul Shapiro. It's the nuts and bolts stuff in using a tool (KNIME) to do some very interesting types of text analysis. I haven't had time yet to play with it but ... I'm going to make time soon.
