Keyword Search: Rules of a Quality Keyword

Last Update: May 04, 2018

Was just going through the lessons and came across this piece of information that would be a great help to ALL of US especially the newbies.

It's about the keyword research. We are privileged to have Jaaxy keyword tool with us in the WA platform which is the best as far as I know.

First what is a keyword?

According to Techopedia, a keyword, is a particular word or phrase that describes the contents of a Web page. In other words it is a statement that people search for on the search engines.

For best results in keyword search, follow these three rules.

Rules of a Quality Keyword

Important rules to follow: -

1: The keyword should have more than 30 monthly searches: - The search "Avg" column number must be greater than 30. It's believed that sometimes it's fine to go with a search volume less than this, but over 30 searches per month is highly recommended.

2: The Keyword should have less than 100 QSR (Competition). For best and easy ranking in search engines you want to keep your competition below 100. The higher the number, the greater competition and vice versa is true.

Kyle says that, "You will likely come across many terms with less than 100 QSR when doing your research, and that is even better!" Keywords with too low QSR and high searches are nicknamed "low hanging fruit" and are considered the best in ranking.

3: The keyword should make sense. This is a very important point to all of us. Sometimes you may come across "low hanging fruit keywords" which don't actually make sense by missing some little words like "at," "in," "is," etc.

It's therefore recommended that if the keyword doesn't make grammatical sense, don't use it. If you still need to use the keyword, do another search that makes sense as that will likely to give you better results.

Just little information but very vital. Hope it has reminded you about some small important rules to follow.

Hello Paul,

The main reason words like at, in & is are not used in keywords is because they are known to be stop words.

Google will normally filter these stop word out of your keywords.
