How does purplepedia work?

The Basics provides information based on Keywords. A keyword can be a single word, like 'London' or a combinations of words, like 'Tower of London'.

By including information about a keyword, a Keyword Article can be constructed. So for the keyword, 'Tower of London', details about the location, history, prices and so on, would form a Keyword Article.

Visitors to will tend to search for information based on keywords. So if they are looking for information about the 'Tower of London'. They will probably search using terms such as 'tower london', 'london tower' or may be 'tower of london'.

They may search in more detail, such as 'tower london opening times' and if keywords such as these are included in the Keyword Articles. The chances of the Keyword Article being returned in the search results increases dramatically.
