Abstract
You're familiar with search engine optimization and how there are a certain set of words that people tend to search with. Choosing the right search keywords will bring people to your website.

However, when people get to the website, a different set of words become important. These are "customer carewords." Choosing the right customer carewords will lead visitors through the site, and to the desired outcome.

Using Customer Carewords contribute to a website that is truly customer-centric; that speaks customer language, not organization language. Stripping away all the filler content from your website creates clean, lean website that focuses on exactly what your customers care most about.
