Semantic SEO means to target most relevant keywords for the content which will help to increase traffic and SERP rank in the search engine because search engine serves the best and relative results to user as per their search query hence we can get benefit by adding most popular semantic words in your title tag, meta tags, h1 tag etc. But make sure your content should relevant to those semantic words also.

I heard about semantic SEO for the very first time. So it's good practice to be adopted to gain targeted traffic to your website. I already used it somehow but i didn't know about the term. Thanks for shedding light on it.

Yes, thatís true that we have to think as user point of view inplace of search engine point of view. Including these types of words may be beneficial for getting ranking in the search engine but as my point of view it is useless to increase user experience.

Its never useless to increase user experience as there is no point in being 1st and people not being able to find the information they want. As you will never get that call.

Good SEO needs to be user focuses and allow the search engines to crawl the content easily.

Semantic SEO should come naturally as not everyone calls an item/service the same thing so you page focusing on a specific term needs to have other words people might call it.

I almost agree

I definitely agree with your intent behind your comment "But make sure your content should relevant to those semantic words also".

The point of semantic search though is that you get away from needing to use specific words on a page (and especially the whole keyword density thing) and instead make the whole content on the page relevant to a topic and Google will work out which keywords are relevant.

The idea here is that if you have the word "cricket" brilliantly optimised on a 'strong page' page all about football you shouldn't really be found for cricket related searches. So the search engines will look at your whole page to work out what the page is about and then try to match pages that meet the 'likely' desire of the search.

Further: the aim (at least the stated aim) is that other related terms may be returned that do have an exact match on the search phrase. So for instance: if someone searches for "the ashes", at this time, it is much more likely they will be looking for pages about cricket and not the residue left by a fire. So, as well as a mix of results being returned about fire residue and the competition "The Ashes", you may get links to the Australian or England cricket teams even though the words "the ashes" may never appear on the specific pages.

Having said that I would still always want my keywords on the page in some form; and still want my most important keywords in the right places (title, H1 etc).

Yes, it is only useful only when we will add content/webpage related semantic words means words that sounds as the main keyword.

For Example,

If our content is related to "web security" then we can use other keywords or synonyms which sounds the same like "web security" and more searchable by people inplace of particular word "web security" then it is beneficial for user.

Semantic SEO means optimizing keywords, their synonyms, miss-spelled word of the main keyword..

For example!

There is a keyword: "Professional SEO services"

It can be optimized for

Professional SEO Service
Professional SEO Services
Efficient SEO Service
High Quality SEO Services


Etc...

Default Semantic SEO?

the concept of semantic seo comes because of semantic search. It is a search which give meaningful results even after there is no such text query at all. Semantic search gives you the search synonyms and relates for the better results. You might type the word Jeans and google will suggest you "Apparels" for the better results.
