Welcome to Tuesday Turn About Link Party 56.
Tuesday Turn About Link Party 56 is our first link party in July. I know it will be a great month of fabulous ideas and inspiration.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Did you watch fireworks on TV? We watched the beautiful fireworks above Mt. Rushmore and a fabulous display over Ft. Worth. They never fail to amaze.
Lots of things were happening here last week: a new operating system on my computer and a call with our Internet provider that has made our connection faster. I’m feeling much better this week.
Here is last week’s TTA 55 if you would like to visit again.
Carol’s Blogger Tip
Let’s talk about Keywords. Specifically, Keyword Prominence and Keyword Density. I listened to a webinar last week that was very helpful, and I’m so sorry I did not write down who was giving it. I’ll probably remember 5 minutes after this post goes out.
So first, remember what a Keyword is? It’s the word or words that people search for in Google or Pinterest. This tip has more to do with Google and your blog. So let’s say that someone is searching “best lemon icebox pie”, they will find my post on page 1, number 4. (That’s a hint ~ it’s an amazing recipe.)
Keyword Prominence refers to WHERE you place your keyword.
- Page title (H1) ~ most important
- At the beginning of the title, if possible
- Early in your post ~ 1st sentence of the 1st paragraph
- At the beginning of your meta description because Google will BOLD it.
- In your subheadings (H2, H3) ~ but not more than 75% of them.
Keyword Density refers to FREQUENCY OF KEYWORD IN YOUR POST.
- Come up with several variations of your keyword phrase.
- The longer your post, the more times your keyword or a synonym or variation of the keyword should be used.
- Use naturally.
- If you use the Yoast SEO plugin (you are, aren’t you?), Yoast will tell you if you are using your keyword too much (keyword stuffing) or too little.
I hope this tip makes you aware of how important Keyword Prominence and Keyword Density are. Check out this post to see if I’ve followed the guidelines.
So now let’s get going with this week’s Tuesday Turn About Link Party 56 Features.

Now let’s get to our link party.
Isn’t this the cutest little DIY project? Have an unused frame and some fabric around? Cindy of County Road 407 created this darling decoration.
These insect~repelling candles from CD at Pallete and Pantry are not only practical but so pretty for our outdoor spaces.
I love coastal decor and any space that evokes water. Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home gives us a wonderful tour of some great coastal decorating.
