    Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) is a mathematical method used to determine the relationship between terms and concepts in content. The contents of a webpage are crawled by a search engine and the most common words and phrases are collated and identified as the keywords for the page.

    LSI helps in search engines for identifying the keywords which are related and process the meaningful for delivering more accurate results in search engine.

    Latent semantic indexing is a concept that search engines like Google use to discover how a term and content work together to mean the same thing.
    In other words, in order to understand how LSI works, you need to understand that search engines are smart enough to identify your content’s context and synonyms related to your keywords.
    However, without LSI keywords it takes the search engines a lot of effort to look for these synonyms and the relation of your keywords to the content on your site. With that said, search engines like Google rank those websites using LSI keywords higher than those that do not.
    By using LSI keywords, you’re better able to create content that flows in a more conversational way. Using a specific keyword will generate results that are similar to the topic you’re discussing. This way you’re not overstuffing your content with the same keyword, making it almost unreadable by your audience.
    It also helps that you’re including LSI to provide the right information to the correct audience. When you use LSI keywords, your audience is able to find the answer to their search quicker and easier, thus generating more traffic to your business’s website.

    LSI keywords (Latent Semantic Indexing) are basically keywords that are semantically related to your primary keyword. Contrary to popular belief, they are NOT just a synonym or keywords that are similar in meaning.

    You forgot to credit the real owner of your copy paste post in the thread.
    Can you have your own words explanation concerning LSI?

    Latent semantic indexing is a technique to analyze how words and group of words are used in texts to understand the underlying meaning or concepts of the text.

    Latent semantic indexing, sometimes referred to as latent semantic analysis, is a mathematical method developed in the late 1980s to improve the accuracy of information retrieval.
