Dear Simon,
I read lots of tips on your blog. But still I don't know that: How do you find relevant part of an article to look for a keyword? Should we read first and last paragraphs and first and last sentences of other paragraphs? What is your technique about finding related part of paragraph?
Thank you.
Murat.
