A keyword is generally a word or phrase that is a topic of significance. Searchers use keywords as a way to identify and verbalize their problem or topic in which they're looking for more information. Businesses create content around relevant topics to their business which helps them rank and be the content in which searchers find.

•A word that serves as a key to a code or cipher.
•A significant or descriptive word.
