I don't think there is such a thing as a "focus keyword" like you describe. Search engines will take whatever information they please for ranking a site, not what you want them to use.

In Q2A you can add tags to a question, but those are just for categorizing a question within Q2A. And you can make the question title as the URL slug up to a configurable number of characters. You could also write a plugin that adds a keywords meta header to each page, but AFAIK that header is mostly ignored by search engines these days because it has been abused by spammers too much.

For general SEO you may want to take a look at the Ultimate SEO plugin.

  1. Choose a relevant and specific keyword: Your focus keyword should be relevant to the question and specific enough to convey its main topic. For example, if your question is about "How to lose weight," your focus keyword could be "weight loss tips."
  2. Use long-tail keywords: Long-tail keywords are more specific and less competitive than short keywords. Using long-tail keywords in your question can help you rank higher in search results. For example, instead of "weight loss tips," you could use "best weight loss tips for beginners."
  3. Do keyword research: Use keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner or Ahrefs to find the most popular and relevant keywords related to your question. This can help you choose the best focus keyword for your question.
  4. Include the focus keyword in the title and URL: Make sure to include your focus keyword in the title of the question and in the URL. This helps search engines understand the topic of the question and rank it higher in search results.
  5. Use the focus keyword naturally in the question: Don't stuff your focus keyword in the question unnaturally. Use it naturally in the question to make it easy to read and understand for the users.

By following these tips, you can effectively set a focus keyword for your question and improve its visibility in search results.
