Keywords are powerful. Not only do they bolster your search engine optimisation (SEO) efforts, but they also help the right people find you online and stay a step ahead of your competition. Using keywords in your web copy (the text on your website) – and any content you publish, such as blog posts – is undeniably one of the best ways to boost your search rankings and get noticed.
But how do you know which keywords you should be using? At PrimePixels, we always start out with keyword research. Keyword research essentially helps us to know what keywords your competitors are using and what your ideal customers are searching for online. You can then optimise various elements on your website to include these keywords such as in your metadata, your H1 and H2 headings, and your product descriptions. Even social media platforms like Instagram are leaning more towards SEO and keywords.
We help small- to medium-sized businesses with their keywords all the time, so we’ve decided to put together a list of the top keywords in each industry we service. Use these keywords on your website and you’ll be heading in the right direction.
Health and wellness
While topics like body positivity and putting an end to diet culture are on the rise, when it comes to health, fitness is often a related keyword.

- Women’s health and wellness
- Health-related fitness
