PAGE 1 – Do not search your keyword in Google. Here’s why.

PAGE 2 – How to get accurate keyword research results

PAGE 3 – Two different Google search results

PAGE 4 – Why the Google results are different than Jaaxy

PAGE 5 – How to achieve accurate keyword results in Google

I see many newbie internet marketers questioning whether the results they get from Jaaxy are correct, because they do not match the results Google gives them. The simple reason you are getting different results in Google is because you are searching THE WRONG WAY.

WHY IS IT THE WRONG WAY?

When you do a search in Google you are given ALL RELEVANT possible answers to your query and NOT the actual results. In this training I will show you how to do keyword research correctly on Google. In order to do this correctly and give you results within a +/- range of ten, you need to do a few things before you get results.

Why did I say a +/- range of 10? Because depending on how popular the search query is currently, sometimes Google does not give exact results, even when searching in this correct way. This is why using a keyword tool is important because it is accurate and it saves you time and hassle.

DO NOT MAKE YOURSELF CONFUSED

Going up on to Google to search your keyword without doing the following correct steps will just make yourself confused. Typing your keyword into Google is absolutely the wrong thing to do. The easiest thing to do is ignore the results of your Google search and trust the Jaaxy results. This is what I have done for 5+ years and I have made it to Google page 1 at least 30 times.

Trusting Jaaxy and ignoring Google is the simple solution. But if you still want to go through the time consuming and multi-step process of searching on Google, then read on and I will show you why you will always get the wrong results doing a straight Google search and all the steps you need to know how to search correctly.

This was EXTREMELY HELPFUL. I've been trying to understand why exactly there would be an overall great Jaaxy Keyword score and then after a million results in google with quotations thank you. I just have one question if anyone knows the answer that would be great. Why does kyle's training say that in quotations the results on google should be under 300 to 400? this also has been bugging me like crazy. Is that training out dated or something? because if like you said you go to the last page and the number closely matches Jaaxy then what does the results being under 3-400 have to do with anything at all.

Its funny how one answer to a question opens up other questions
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The 300 to 400 is in reference to the QSR score. Typically we should only use keywords that have a QSR of no more than these.

However we all should strive for keywords with a QSR of 100 and below. The lower the QSR the better.

These are considered the "Low Hanging Fruit" keywords and will rank better and quicker.

You are welcome. The process of finding and using low competition keywords is very simple. Too many people over-complicate the process with out dated techniques.

Just find a low competition keyword with a QSR of less than 100. If not then use one with a higher QSR but keep it under 300. Then use this keyword in your page or post title and then once more in the beginning of your content.

That is all you need to do. Google does not need to see your keyword more than that. Just write your content naturally and you will get ranked based on your entire content, not just the keyword.

Recently going through a dizzy spell trying to understand what is happening.

After researching keywords through jaaxy and creating multiple posts based on what I thought were some pretty good keywords, most of my articles aren't ranking at all for the keywords I selected after almost a month.

On my next article, I am going to select a keyword that has some pretty decent results in other keyword tools also and see what kind of performance I get.

Still trying to wrap my head around this.

Thanks again for the info! Very good stuff there!

One thing to remember is that if you are having trouble coming up with a good keyword to target you page or post on, just publish your content without it.

Google will still rank your content without a target keyword. At the link below I explain how anyone can rank on Google Page 1 without a target keyword.
Reply
jwlewis777 Premium
Oh very nice info! Thank you!

I guess you can write it up as a little bit of obsessive but I am just really curious about why my pages aren't ranking at all for keywords I chose through jaaxy with some pretty good volume, qsr and seo numbers.

This next article will be a bit of an experiment to see how it does. For this new keyword I used multiple tools including Jaaxy.

Thank you for the info and I will definitely read up on your blog link there!

hi boomer, I read something last night about UNquoted search results being your TRUE competition instead of the QSR, and it's got me a bit confused. basically the above post says to do unquoted search on google to see how much competing pages you really have, and also to look at the top 1 page to get an idea if you can rank. But in the training it just say to look at searches of at least 50, QSR of below 200, and article power of at least 8.

can you clarify if I'm doing it correctly? when I use a keyword they always have 50 searches min, QSR I try to keep it below 30, and article power of 8. do I still have to check on google?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
No, you do not have to check on Google. I rarely check Google because the information provided by the keyword tool is sufficient and has given me Google first page rankings dozens of times.

Thank you boomergp08, I see that the WA keyword search tools and JAAxy give almost the same results compared to the GOOGLE search which gives an astronomic high results. So it is better to use WA Keyword search and be safe from confusion. Even with quotation marks and without them the results are still 3,040 instead of 38 or 41 of WA.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes! I have used the WA keyword tool for 3+ years with great results, plus it is free.

The reason Google gives you inflated results is because it is a search engine and is not designed to do keyword research.

So never use Google for that because it will just confuse you with in accurate results.

Excellent training as always Robert.

Jaaxy or WA KWT is correct, but if you think about it, regular Google users don't put a quotation mark to find search results.

So, after all even if your page is ranked well, there is a difference between what you want to see as a website owner and regular Google users are seeing. Am I right?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The only way to get accurate results of a keyword's competition is to use quotes.

But when people search in Google they are not looking for competition results but rather answers to their querries.

This is why content writers should never use Google to do keyword research because Google will give results based on the query and not based on competition.

Reply
boomergp08 Premium
There sould be 1 target keyword per post or page. As you write out the post naturally other synonym keywords will naturally appear.

You only need to place your target keyword in your page or post title and one more time in the first paragraph. Google does not need to see it anymore than this to know what your content is about and rank you for that keyword.

As for the keywords settings area under the editor window, you need to leave that area blank. Google does not use that area anymore because people that place keywords their are doing so in an attempt to get higher rankings and Google considers that keyword stuffing.

Hey, boomergp08 I have just search competition of keyword "How to grow tomatoes" using your method. And in Google at the very last page it showed me 235. Jaaxy and WA tool show 300. Why is the difference so big? Maybe you know what's going on here?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
It is rare that Google will be equal or really close to both the WA keyword tool or Jaaxy because Google never gives accurate results. This is because Google is not a keyword research tool and is not designed to give accurate results.

The best it can do, when following the steps I outline in this training, is to come close. But there will be times like this where the numbers will be further apart. That being said I wouldn't trust Google's results over either the WA keyword tool or Jaaxy, mainly because Google is a search engine and not a keyword research tool.

The confusion about keyword results comes about when people make the big mistake and go to Google to find those results. Google is a search engine and not a keyword research tool, and because of this the results it will display are not accurate.

Tulika Premium
Hi, there is something I don't understand, this may be a very silly question. Most people (except the very savvy ones) don't do google search with the quotation marks before and after what they type. If I do a search for "how to boost the immune system naturally" without the quotation marks, that's exactly the result most (almost all) people will see when they google search the whole expression. Doesn't it make sense to rank first in that result list rather?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The quotation marks are what keyword research tools use to give you the accurate results for a keyword. When you type into Google without quotation marks the results Google gives you are not the accurate results. Google will give you, in addition to your keyword, all other relevant results as well.

Yes, these are tried, tested and proven methods. You should never use Google as a keyword research tool because Google was never designed to be one.

Google is a search engine designed to give you many different but relevant results based on what you type in. It is not designed to give you specific keyword results. That is why keyword research tools have been created, so you can know how well they can rank.

I am a little concerned about the ranking part. Most people dont use quotation marks while searching so does that mean there are less chances for my website to rank at top as google shows other relevant results too?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Not at all.

Quotes need to be used for keyword research ONLY because that is how it works to get accurate results. It doesn't matter if people do not use quotes because people are also not doing keyword research when typing words into Google. So there is no reason for you to be concerned. Just never use Google to research keywords.

Wow, this is great! Thank you" This explains so much of my previous irritation when I searched SOMETHING in Google and a lot of things showed up which I didn't want. (Independent from keyword search). I always thought: Why can't they give me the results with the exact words I gave in? Why is there so much different stuff? Now I understand - but still don't get why they fit literally everything in your research which doesn't seem to matter to me.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
It all comes down to what is relevant to the search query you typed into Google. When I say relevant I not only mean relevant to the keyword but also relevant to the keyword in part.

If the keyword uou typed was "how to make money at home online" Google would display relevant rsults with the keywords,
"how to make money at home online"
"how to make money at home"
"how to make money online"
"how to make money"
"make money at home online"
"make money at home"
"make money online"

So there will always be many different search results that are relevant to your original search query based on keywords. Then there are is relevancy based on the LSI keywords within the content itself that will determine if they show in search results.

Great training, thank you for that.

I would add, if you are doing competitor research in your niche, then googling your proposed keyword can be useful.

For instance: when starting a new site, using a Moz bar, you can google your keyword and then see the DA (authority) of the sites that are currently ranking for that KW. If you find some sites that are lowish DA (therefore not very authoritative), then you have a good chance of outranking them, with better content.

If plugging your KW into google shows a whole lot of sites on page 1 with DA 90-99, then you may have difficulty outranking them with that KW whatever the KW tool tells you about it's compettiveness.

I believe that competitor research is important, as well as keyword research.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Competitor research is important to some people and using it as you describe is beneficial. I personally have never used it, but it can be a great advantage to people in certain niches who may not feel as confident in their ability to beat out the competition.

But for the pure aspect of using Google as a way to verify the QSR of either the WA keyword tool or Jaaxy, is a total waste of time.

To use Google the correct way for keyword research, you would have to search for your keyword using quotes "keyword" because if you don't the final results will not be accurate.

Then once you do the search for the quoted keyword you will have to click all the way to the very last page of the results to see the actual number. Google never shows the actual number on page one, and they tell you why on the bottom of the very last page.

To go through that entire and sometime very long process just to get a QSR number that you can get within seconds by using the WA keyword tool or Jaaxy, is why I say it is a total waste of time.

Completely agree - Googling your KW is not the way to do tradtional KW research at all. In fact it gives you very little.

Shannon9902 Premium
Thank you for the explanation. I think the training video needs to be updated regarding this, because I've spent about 3 hours trying to figure this out. My keyword phrase was "take care stray kitten". QSR is 2, which can't be right, and then the google results of 757,000.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That is the correct QSR. The Google results is not a QSR and it is not the true results you are looking for because Google includes other results that are relevant but not your actual keyword.

This is why you should never search for your keyword in Google, because it is a search engine and not a keyword research tool. I just did the search for your keyword in Google the CORRECT WAY and it gave me the same result as the WA tool, 2

You advise against the alphabet method in Google and sticking to this tool? I'm having a hard time finding low competion key words, finding mostly low traffic or high comp. but using google then going to wa keyword tool.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
No, I am not saying to not use the alphabet method in Google like Kyle suggest. What I am saying is to not take the keyword you find in the keyword tool and then check for it in Google.

Example: When using the keyword tool, you find a keyword with a result of 50. That is a great keyword. But then you decide to type that keyword into Google to see if it gives you the same result. This is where the problem will occur that confuses people. Google will give you a result of 17,099 because it is NOT a keyword research tool and the results it gives is a combination of many different things.

Wht is your niche that you are having a hard time finding keywords for?

Thanks for a great training Boomer. Definitely cleared up a lot of questions that I had. I just wanted to ask you a question though because I still feel a little bit confused of how google works.

I'm in a very competitive niche (gold investing). When I find a long tail keyword that has low QSR everything looks great. But when I search for my keyword in incognito mode (without quotes) I get a bunch of big authority sites in the SERP.

These guys are not optimized for that specific keyword. So my question is: Do I have a big advantage over other sites if my post is optimized for this low QSR keyword? If I have the exact long tail keyword in my title, url and description.

Because the guys that I get on my SERP (in incognito mode without quotes) doesn't have the full keyword in any of the title, url or description. They maybe just have a small part of it.

I have only had my site for around 2 months so I know I wont be ranking to page number 1 yet. But in the future will I still be able to outrank these authority sites because my post is optimized for that specific long tail keyword?

Thanks for all the help you provide for us newbies. Really appreciate it.

I think I found a clearer way to state my original question Robert.

If I'm competing with 4 sites (as indicated by the KW tool) with an exact keyword phrase, what does this actually mean? I don’t think it means that if I am able to out rank those 4 sites that I’ll be ranked on page 1 for that phrase, does it? So what exactly am I doing when I’m competing using a low-hanging fruit keyword?

I want to mention that I have a suspicion that what I'm trying to figure out is related to SERP and there may not be a quick answer to this. Thanks again for all your help.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
There is no quick answer because it is related to the maturity of your website. Once your website gets to be about 6 months or a combined 15 pages and posts long, Google will begin to look at your site as an authority in your niche. Only then will you start to see your rank improve.

So basically, stop obsessing about trying to get on page one. Just keep writing good content with low hanging fruit keywords and Google will eventually raise you up.

I have a question about this. I looked at the number 1 listing given when using the keyword tool(and then clicking the "view result" button. Then when I searched the same term in google, the number 1 listing was different. I'm confused and concerned that carefully choosing a good keyword and ranking well for it will not reflect when someone else searches the term that I've ranked for. Ie, I'm assuming people don't usually search in quotations. Any help/clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
NEVER search for your keywords in Google because Google is a search engine and not designed to interpret keyword rankings. As a search engine its job is to give you every instance of your keyword in whole AND in part. This is why you will never get accurate results from Google.

This is why keyword tools are created, to give people like us who write content an idea where our specific keywords would rank without Google revealing results that show the keyword in part. If your keyword was "how to lose belly fat" Google would display results such as:

how to lose belly fat
how to lose fat in your belly
lose belly fat learn how to
how to quickly lose that fat and slim down your belly

and many other varieties of keywords containing your keyword in part.

So totally ignore Google and only rely on what the WA Keyword Tool and Jaaxy are telling you. They are more accurate then Google can ever be.

Thank you for this post, Robert.

I understand your question, however, understanding why Google is doing it or not, sorry, in my opinion a wate of time.
I too sometimes, in the beginning, got frustrated why Google is doing certain things, or the lack of it.

Hi Sylvia, thanks for your response. Actually, I was trying to ask if Google would ultimately prefer a quoted search result over a "relevant" result as your article marinates online. Will having a QSR keyword enable you to have a ranking advantage over sites that are not the exact keyword, but which have much more link juice?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Simply put, Google was designed and is a seach engine, not a keyword research tool. It's job is to give you ALL relevant results in whole AND in part of your keyword even when quoted.

This is why when you quote a keyword in Google you have to click all the way to the last page of the results to see the number that is close "not exact" match to the real result. Even Google states that results were omitted to give you the results you see.

Another thing to remember is that Google does not rank pages based solely on Keywords. They rely very much on semantic search first and keyword relevance second.

Relevance to what someone types into Google will determine how high up in the SERPs your content will show over that of the quoted keyword. Also user interaction, social shares + other factors all play a role in how high up your content shows over a period of time.

I hope that made sense.

It's a common mistake everyone makes when doing keyword research. They think that by typing their keyword into Google, it is going to give them accurate results.

But what people forget or more likely do not understand, is that Google is a search engine and not a keyword research tool. If people were able to easily and accurately research keywords in Google, there would be no need for keyword research tools.

If you have a long keyword or phrase, does a search for a word in the phrase or part of the phrase have the same result?
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The phrase itself is the keyword. So if your keyword is "how to make money from home" that 6 word keyword will have a certain value.

But if you were to only target part of that keyword and choose "make money from home" it would not have the same value.

so when the target audience types my keywords in. they may see me in my ranking but they may not. so it still seems like, at times, even with a good ranking your target audience still wont see your post?
please correct me if i have this incorrect,. thanks.
Reply
ZhiWei Premium
With a good ranking on google, audience has most probability to click on your website. The ranking which you see in google is not your website ranking, but your post ranking. So the action of clicking brings audience to that post directly.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
When your website is new your target audience probably will not see you because of low rankings, unless you are using a very low competition keyword.

Google does not rank any website high when it is new because you have not established authority within your niche. This only happens after a period of a few months of regularly adding content.

Once your website has about 20-25 pages/posts of content, Google will start paying more attention to you and rank you higher.Your goal is to rank within the top 2 pages of Google, but it will take time before that can happen.

I really enjoyed the training. I have one question. Can the competition derived from the WA tool be compared to the QSR of Jaaxy for those people who don't have access to Jaaxy?
Reply
RKingsley Premium
I've been using both, but the QSR tool on Jaaxy is much better. The free WA tool will work, just not as accurately. If you can't get Jaaxy, don't worry too much - just focus on good content, with as much keyword accuracy as you can on the WA tool.
Reply
digpacitti Premium
Hi JC,
I have not used Jaaxy personally, so I cannot say which is better. But in reading the education provided by Boomer, it appears he is more than comfortable with just using the WA tool. As Jess states below, the QSR may be a bit more accurate, but going through the lessons and using the WA tool the way Boomer explains I believe will give great results.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The Competition and QSR in Jaaxy are almost identical. The difference between the two gives no disadvantage or advantage to either keyword research tool.

A majority of members use the WA tool and it does a great job in researching keywords. But neither keyword research tool will guarantee you great results, because it always comes down to how you use that keyword in your content.

I have made it on to Google page 1 more than 20 times and several times in position 1, all from keywords I researched using the WA tool. So not having Jaaxy is not going to be a disadvantage to the success of your website development.
Reply
JeromyS7 Premium
Hey, great article. I may have missed it as I did go through quickly. Can you tell me please, what are good target metrics on this? You had search volume just under 500, which you said was good and competition of 37, which is obviously good. What would be your thoughts on a 'line'. i.e., Over x? search and under x? competition?
Thanks,
JS

Excellent as usual Robert. Your tutorials are among the very best offered here by WA members. I personally consider them to be in the "must read" category as what you do provide is so tremendous educationally and of benefit to everyone trying to grow an online business.

I find it interesting that only today another member reported having major issues with Jaaxy. Perhaps this individual needs to come here to this 5 part training tutorial and learn HOW TO properly do keyword research. I have no issues with Jaaxy whatsoever.

As you clearly stated one can easily perform this keyword research incorrectly by simply going to Google and typing in a keyword, (keyword phrase) WITHOUT using the quotation marks. And then he/she gets fooled in believing that result, which would be in error!

Thank you for all that you do for other WA members here. You're representative of what Kyle and Carson had in mind when they developed WA to truly be a helping, supportive community!

Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That is true but this would only be the case for two reasons.

1) If your website has less than 25 combined pages & posts and is less than 3 months old. It taks time for a new website to build up authority in its niche for Google to take notice. One way to speed up the process is to produce consistent and informative content no less than 500 words.

2) If you did not use your keywords correctly by placing them in the in your page or post titles, early on in your first paragraph, and perhaps one more time near the end of the content or in a heading tag.

Thanks for the training Boomer! I am now following you because of this.
A question when you get the chance:
This is what I missed in the education. I have never used the quotation marks in my search when I use google (but I will from now one). Since (I am guessing) the majority of the population is not either, how does this help in getting raised in the ranks for the Google query? I must re-read this, but it appears that the correct keyword search doesn't appear until the last page? Please help me understand what I am missing (when you have the time).
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Using quotations has nothing to do with you getting higher rankings.

Using quotations and then click through to the last page of results is only beneficial to find the same results given to you by te WA Keyword Tool.

The purpose of this tutorial is to explain why the results given by the WA Keyword Tool & Jaaxy are different than Google when people type in their keyword.

The reason why the results are different is because keyword research tools search by using quotation marks.

Great Info Robert, you are a star,

In the Jaaxy site rank, does it play up a bit, one day one of my posts will say page 4 position 36 next day it can`t find it, it`s done it a few times on different post, is it a glitch or slow internet,

I have asked this before, but I didn`t get a solution, the Jaaxy search plugin code does not show up in my wp page, I put it in the text box, when I look in visual then back to text I noticed the code has changed I am using Omega theme.

I deactivated the plugins one by one but no difference.

I am wondering whether to try another test site with omega theme with siterubix.

Got any ideas.

Cheers,

Lou

boomergp08 Premium
I cannot answer your question about that aspect of Jaaxy because I have never used Jaaxy beyond my initial 30 free searches 2+ years ago. I only use the WA Keyword Tool.

I do know that Google, especially when content is new, will rank a page/post higher up and then quickly within a couple of days, if not unique and wordy, will drop the page out of the top 10 or 15 page results. It is like they tease you and then pull the rug out from under you.

As for a test site, I highly recommend having a test site with several different themes installed, so this way you can try different plugins with different themes and not have to create more than one free website.

IMc Premium
When you are planning a site, it's worth bearing in mind how people use Google.

Ask yourself a simple question - how often do you search for anything in parentheses " " when you want to find information ?

For 99% + of people this will be rarely or never.

So rather than competing with the results for
"how to boost the immune system naturally "
you're really competing against the results for
how to boost the immune system naturally
as the latter is what 99% of people will be typing into the search bar.

And that has a score of 453 not 37.

Ideally you want both the results in " " and without to be close.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes I agree with what you are saying 100%. But that was not the purpose of this training tutorial. Many new members have been asking why the competition results given by the WA Keyword Tool and QSR by Jaaxy, are different than what Google gives when someone types in their keyword without quotation marks.

Instead of explaining the same thing over and over multiple times a week, I created this tutorial to explain and show them why the keyword results given by the WA Keyword Tool is different. Because the Keyword Tool uses quotation " " marks when calculating the results.

So if people still want to double check the Keyword Tool and Jaaxy results with Google, they will have to use the same method and search with quotation marks and then click through to the last page. Though this is not how the majority of people search for a keyword in Google, it is the only way to get the Google results to match the WA Keyword Tool and Jaaxy results.

Thank you Robert for another great lesson. My understanding, the lower the number for your "view Result" the better. So a "5" would be better than "133"? There are also " buyer" keywords, that everyone should learn the difference between the two. But for now, just getting a good selection of low competition keywords to get better rankings is my priority.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes, The lower the competition results or QSR if you use Jaaxy is the best way to get higher rankings. So 5 is definitely better than 133, as long as the monthly searches is above 50.

You can't just trust the results and think you'll rank first. You have to do your own research like you show on top of page 4.

Google puts big, trusted, high authority pages on the top. I don't think you can ever outrank Harvard or Dr Oz,

So the less of those "big" sites, the more chances you have to rank well.

Thanks for sharing this.

Jay has a good video on this.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes I agree but ranking is not the issue here. Even if it were, I wouldn't expect to rank higher than Dr. Oz, but I know that I can surely get on to page 1 with him and that is 75% of the battle.
