Hey guys,

I'd like to hear from Jaaxy users, how useful do you find Jaaxy's results? And were you able to rank for search terms thanks to Jaaxy?

Thanks in advance!

Jaaxy has saved me literally HOURS of work from laboring over keyword searches. I use the free key tool here also. I use both, and for me it's worth the small hassle.

I'm not all fancy with the Google semantics and whatnot. What I need is good keywords, ideas, good QSR and then couple that with great content and consistent posting.

Rather bare bones of me, but I'm a simple girl. :)
Sheila.

Hi Anh!

You can certainly get by just using the WA keyword tool, but ...
I really like Jaaxy and use it in conjunction with the WA tool.

I used Jaaxy when I was just starting out.It makes my kw research faster using the alphabet soup technique. But i stopped using it because of budget issues. I realised that id better get conversions than rankings. I now use wa kw tool fulltime and i still get rankings and conversions.

My 2 cents... Ive used Jaaxy for 4 years and never had the need to change. Lately I also use the free mozbar for deeper research after finding my keywords in Jaaxy

I find a lot of the keyword software is similar. I have used longtail pro as well and I actually found it to be superior to Jaxxy as it pulled all metrics of your competition (DA, PA, AGE etc). Im not sure if Jaxxy has added this function.

I actually don't use them now. I do keyword research in a different way to most now.

Thanks Beau!

Jaaxy seems to only calculate a keyword competitiveness with "Quoted Search Results" without taking into account the page authority factors.

Which makes me wonder if Jaaxy is still a good tool to find low competitive, long-tail keywords for niche site building purpose.

I agree, quoted search results can be found easily, and manually.. and you are right, there is no mention of page authority factors.

There is one further step you can take to really get the competition of a keyword, beyond exact match.

Trouble is, this takes ages to do manually and there is only one software out there that I know of, that measures this... (perhaps longtailpro has added this?)

I guess this has been left out as the normal WA user doesnt care about these factors (I do).

I still feel Jaxxy would be an effective tool for long tail phrases. The additional competition analysis will need to be done manually

Beau,

After a discussion with Todd in the comments, I've asked Kyle about this. I'll just copy my reply to Todd for you:

"Todd, I just got an answer from Kyle.

I asked him the same question and his reply really shed light on the issue.

QSR is a good metric if you are looking for super low competitive keywords, that means keywords with a QSR below 100. By then, the competition (DA and other things) is much more irrelevant since there are so few results for that particular topic in the whole world. Which is why you can actually outrank authoritative sites like CNN and Forbes.

So basically, Jaaxy is an ideal product exclusively for researching low hanging fruits. However it's not for you if you are looking to outrank for competitive keywords."

I hope this helps!

I've heard a lot of good things about Long Tail Pro and it seems like the tool if you want to compete for harder keywords.

I'd like to know if the long tail keywords suggested by Jaaxy is the same as Long Tail Pro. If not, which do you think is more effective for finding untaped long tails?

Cheers,
Anh

I found it superior because of the additional competition analysis it provided... I think most keyword tools pull keywords the same way.. QSR, Google Adwords, Google Trends, Suggest, Alphabet soup methods...

Yes I use Jaaxy and I love it... well obviously otherwise I would just the WA tool

Thanks Lynne!

There is something I wonder when it comes to Jaaxy, they seem to only base the keyword competitiveness on "Quoted Search Results", as Google has other ranking factors such as site authority as well as semantics (using contextual meaning to display search results instead of exact match), do you still find keywords found with Jaaxy to be an accurate indicator of how well you can rank for that keyword?

Jaaxy is the best keyword research tool I have ever used, and that says a lot because I've used many keyword tools over the past seven years. I also like the other features that are part of Jaaxy.

Thanks Valerie! There is something I've been wondering, Jaaxy seems to determine a keyword competitiveness only with the amount of "Quoted Search Results", right? Do you find that it still stands in accuracy when Google is moving to semantics search, and also it doesn't determine the competitiveness of the pages you are up against (i.e. the DA and PA of the top 10 results, if it's a Wikepedia page or a forum post).

I'd love to hear what you think. :)

Cheers,
Anh

Hi Anh - You have given me some 'food for thought' there. I wasn't aware that Google is moving to semantics search, so that is something else we will need to deal with! However, what I can say is that my most recent post (within the last week) is ranking in Position 3 Page 1 of Google and the Jaaxy analysis of the keyword is: Avg <10 - Traffic <10 - QSR 12 - KQI Green - SEO 90.
Admittedly Jaaxy doesn't determine the competitiveness of the pages we are up against but we can find that easily by using the Free WA Keyword tool which is not ideal due to moving between one tool and another, but I honestly have never found a tool that does absolutely everything. In saying that, maybe Wordtracker might provide competitiveness but it was way back in 2007 when I used Wordtracker and I remember that it was a comprehensive tool but the absolute details have faded from my memory.

I hope this helps.

Cheers
Valerie

Aww, thanks Valerie! I'm glad I can give you some "food for thoughts".

I've asked Kyle about that question and he had helped me shed light on the issue. I've just told Todd what happened in the comments so I'll paste here for you:

I hope this helps clarify. If you are interested in what exactly Kyle told me, let me know and I'll send you via PM. :)

Have a great day,

If you want to create a successful website that's based on ranking constent in Google, it's a must-have. As soon as I started using it, I started understanding keyword research better and started raking my posts much quicker. I use it everyday, I use the yearly membership which costs me $.50 a day. I get over 86% of my traffic organically and I get anywhere between 500 to 1000 visitors for free to my site per day. I hope that helps you decide.

Wow, Todd. I've always admired your site Learn to Grow Wealth Online, you seem very dedicated and knowledgeable when it comes to SEO and content marketing. :)

That's very kind of you but I don't know how much of a SEO Expert I am. I'm not sure what you mean by the DA and PA nor am I up on the latest Symantec search changes by Google.

I mostly focus on the keyword research, and try my best to provide quality content that's based on what people in my niche are searching for using Google. And I have several posts that out rank authoritative websites like Wikipedia, http://entrepreneur.com, http://Forbes.com.

If you are referring to Jaxxys qsr in relation to the accuracy of Googles search results that include authoritative blogs as well as forums, i've always found Jaxxy to be accurate to the actual Google search results.

The QSR is your competition, but don't forget to look at the SEO score, The higher the number, the easier it is to rank for that keyword phrase.

I find this to be incredibly accurate using Jaaxy. I'd love to get your take on some of the topics that I'm not aware of that you mentioned.

Also, you might want to take your question to Jay or even Kyle or Carson. They may be able to give you a more educated answer than me.

Cheers,
Todd

If it's a must-have, they should make it a standard part of the WA membership.

Todd, thanks so much for the in-depth reply!

I am just a little nerdy when it comes to topics I care, like SEO. So here goes my 2 cents:

PA and DA refers to Page Authority and Domain Authority, these are metrics created by SEO giant Moz to determine a page or domain's likeliness to rank on search engines (calculated based on factors such as backlinks, site trust and more) on a scale of 1 - 100. For example Google's DA is 100, while a brand new site's DA is 1.

Semantics is a new approach Google has taken for several years now to improve their search engine results by focusing on the contextual meaning of the term instead of the exact match. Which is why I'm wondering if only focusing on QSR is a good idea.

However according to you, Jaaxy is still very accurate at finding low competitive long-tails keywords for niche blogs... which is great!

And you are right, I will take this question to Kyle and maybe Jay too. And I'll let you know how it goes, if you are interested. :)

Cheers,
Anh

Thanks for the clarification and sure, that makes total sense. Jay has gone over Domain and Page Authority in his Webinars, but it's been awhile ago since I attended the webinar.

I think you might be over analyzing this somewhat but maybe for good reason. With all the little SEO tricks I do on every single post, the same theme holds true for Google and Google Searchers. Finding relevant content that matches the keyword search.

So it's always about user experience and providing that relevant content to meet your niche audiences needs.

You seem to have a good handle on this, but it would be nice to know what Jay or Kyle says about this. So when you get your answer, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks,
Todd

And thanks so much for the kind words, I surely lack a lot of real-life experiences when it comes to SEO. :) I'm one of those who just bangs their head into competitive keywords.

It was great to discuss keyword research with you, I hope we can talk more often!

Stay awesome,
Anh

Thanks for letting us know Kyle's response. It's good to know that QSR is the main factor for low competition keywords. I aim for QSR as low as possible, preferably below 50, but if I can get it close to 10, or even below 10, I'm delighted.

Hi Anh,

Thanks for the update and that make so much sense. I wonder if Long-Tail Pro is better for tackling high competition keywords?

Good to know and feel free to reach out to me whenever, it was great to get your perspective. Your style of thinking is going to lead to a lot of online success. I swear, sometimes I'm obsessive with this stuff too.

I think the WA lesson of always striving for good customer service by solving your niche audiences problems is the point I always take with me when writing and editing my content.

Thanks again, good to know you Anh.

Cheers,
Todd

It's a pleasure to help, Marcus!

I wonder if you've found keywords with good traffic with a QSR of 10 - 50. What is the minimum amount of traffic for you to write a post on? I imagine... 50 or below?

Aww Todd, I'm happy to share with you what I know.

As for Long Tail Pro. I haven't personally used it but have done some researches:

It's the kind of keyword tool that lets you analyse the competitiveness of the top 10 SERP results. With factors such as Title and URL (to check exact match keywords), PA, DA, numbers of backlinks , site age etc. (I believe they don't have a "QSR" metric.)

With Long Tail Pro, you'll be able to roughly grasp how hard it is to rank for a keyword and what you can actively do to rank, mostly based on the number and quality of backlinks.

Here is an excellent post about such SEO strategy from Michael Karp that I found useful: http://copytactics.com/cost-effective-seo-ranking

And yes, I believe being helpful is crucial when it comes to everything. The reason I go into online marketing is to be able to make direct impact on others as opposed to working in the office. :)

Have a great day,
Anh

Yes, probably no lower than 50 searches per month, but I don't have a precise figure.

But I think it is better to be on page 1 of Google for a bunch of low traffic keywords than on page 10 for some high traffic keywords. If you're anywhere beyond the first few pages of Google, it's almost as bad as not being there at all. Most people won't even see you unless you are on the first page.

Marcus, agreed. Kyle said the same in one of his videos as well. I learned this the hard way while trying to rank for competitive keywords.

Does most of the keywords you try to rank for with lower QSR than 100 end up on the first page? Or are there certain exceptions?

To be honest, it's hit and miss. Some rank, some don't.
