This thread really hits on a lot of great points so I’d like to add some reasoning and use of bold, Strictly for the sake of SEO here.
When it comes to breaking up your articles I do not see the point in bolding entire sections that is just going to confuse the search engines… From a “readers” perspective this may work better for you if you want a “user” experience.
but when writing your articles….
use bold in your Keywords
– *not every time you write your keyword lol… but definitely at least once or twice throughout your article.
Google recognizes bold, underline, italicized, links in your article (that report back to your article or blog) and then “H” tags. Use all of these simple recognition tools throughout your article, and give Google some help by Keywording what your article is about.
Proper Keyword Density: count the number of words in your article. Multiply that by .025 This should be the number of times your keyword should be written throughout your article. if you go over 3% you may end up keyword stuffing and below 2% may not be enough for Google to recognize.
In conclusion no matter what the use of bold, SEO, or reader experience, definitely an important factor in my business.
