Entering Your Target Keywords

After you've identified your target keywords, you can enter them in the Acrolinx sidebar. Here's how you do it.

  1. Open a document, then open the Acrolinx sidebar if it isn't open already.
  2. Click CHECK to check your content and discover existing keywords first.
  3. In the Acrolinx sidebar, open the  Findability tab.
  4. Add new and discovered keywords to your list of targeted keywords.

    To add a keyword that isn't already in your content, do the following:

    1. Open the  Target Keywords section.
    2. Click the Add  button, and enter your target keyword.

    To add a keyword that Acrolinx discovered in your content, do the following:

    1. Open the  Discovered Keywords section.
    2. Find a keyword and click the "Add" button next to the keyword.

    To add a keyword that your keyword information system has proposed for your project, do the following:

    1. Open the  Proposed Keywords section.
    2. Find a keyword and click the "Add" button next to the keyword.

    Acrolinx permanently stores this keyword for your document. You'll always see this keyword in the  Target Keywords section whenever you open and check your document.

  5. Prioritize your target keywords.

    If you have a long list of target keywords, you'll want to put your most important target keywords at the top. That way, you can keep a closer eye on the findability metrics for these keywords.

    Additionally, the priority of your keywords influences how Acrolinx validates the prominence of your keywords. If high-priority keywords have low prominence scores, you'll see prominence warnings in the sidebar.

    You can order your list by dragging and dropping the keyword entries in the  Target Keywords section.
