Focus Keyword not found by page analysis (7 posts)

    I am pretty new at WordPress SEO and after reading many tutorials online, there is something that really puzzles me:

    for my homepage SEO, I have entered as focus keyword the name of my site but the page analysis says the word is neither found in my URL nor in the article heading nor in the content!

    What do I do wrong?

    my website is http://www.naturalfootwear.co.uk and the focus keyword I chose is "natural footwear"

    focus keyword should be targeted on individual posts/pages. This article explains your problem

    In terms of SEO, 'natural footwear" and "naturalfootwear" are different things. So, you may want to just use "naturalfootwear" as your focus keyword.

    ok, I am going to read the article, thank you Page404.

    Thank you too Kenneth for the clarification.

    I have a slider with some text next to it, on my homepage, and the text includes all the keywords I have tried to choose as focus keywords. Could it be because the text is not in a proper post that the keywords are not recognised???

    Do you publish the text(Welcome to Natural Footwear!) using the normal WordPress page/post format or you have a special customized template in your theme that displays this text?

    From what i'm seeing, the page(text) has no url

    I do publish the text in a special customized template from the theme, it's part of a slider. I do suspect that's why the text is not taken into account...

    I apologise, I thought the URL was actually my domain name/homepage address. I understand now that it should be a URL on the page...
