Keywords, content and mother tongue.

Last Update: March 12, 2016

While I was making the lesson "Content, Keywords and Conversions" I began to do my keywords research and I realized that I'm in a market completely different from others.

To make a research in English is not the same that in Portuguese or other language, and the result can be quite different as well!

For instance, I made a research on Jaaxy on the "selling keywords" with the English keyword "how to sell books online". The result was AVG 6946 TRAF 1181 QSR 225.

When I made the research with the exactly same Keyword but in Portuguese "como vender livros online", the result was AVG <10 TRAF <10 QSR 5.

So I searched so many Portuguese keywords related to "selling" or "making money" online (since my website is in Portuguese language), and I don't think it works because the Average and the Traffic are too low.

I'd like to have some more opinions about this issue from other members that use other languages than English in their websites. Please let me know your experience with foreign keywords.

Thanks

Alex

Hi, im from Sweden and have the same problem. Im using google adwords ( https://www.google.com/adwords/ ). Its free. The results wont be 100 % correct, but it can give you a hint on how many searches your keyword gets per mouth. You can even "dig" and get some similar keyword, but sometimes those are in english. Try it out :) //Markus

There are some keyword tools in different languages. But most of them charge you.

At the moment I only use the Google keyword planner. I've bookmarked some others and have to test them.

Jaaxy and the WA keyword tool only work correct with English searches, I have Dutch website, and I am using the alphabet soup, and when I find a phrase under the 500 hits, I am glad, and when I find a phrase under the 100 hits I am excited

This is a great question, to which I don't know the answer.

I see websites in Dutch, Norwegian and also wonder how keyword research was done or weather some other process was used to translate the content.

I do lots of personal searches on the web in Spanish and I am surprised that there is always a couple of pages of my keywords in the results.

Thank you Alex and hope to get some insights to other language research.

Hi Joaquin, thank you for left your opinion.
In fact the WA keyword tool and Jaaxy seems to work in portuguese and in spanish language, and like you say, there is always several results when you do some research. But the question is: can you trust those results?
