I am sure many of you are probably users of Jaaxy, but in my 4 years here I only used it during my first week for the 30 free searches. I knew that once I became a Premium member I would have unlimited access to the WA Keyword Tool which does the same thing as Jaaxy but without the bells and whistles. For me, that's fine because it is quite simple to use the WA Keyword Tool.
In this brief training I am going to explain the simple aspects of using the WA Keyword Tool as I have been for the past four years. I am not saying Jaaxy is bad. All I am saying is that the WA Keyword Tool does just as good a job at keyword research and I have 30% of my website pages and posts on Google Page 1 by using the WA Keyword Tool exclusively!
THE BASICS OF WHAT I LOOK AT
In the picture above you will see that I did a search for the keyword "free keyword research tool." Please excuse the different colored boxes, but they do highlight different things.
Example: The only results I am interested in are the monthly Searches and the Competition, QSR for those of you who use Jaaxy. The monthly Traffic is the last thing I will look at if at all. The only thing I care about is that the monthly Searches is above 50 and the Competition is below 300 results. If I find a result that looks promising I may look at the Article Power number. If it is 8 or above I may consider using that keyword. NOTE: Personally for me an Article Power of 8 is as low as I will go.
As we can see in the picture above the monthly Searches are great at 626. But as you can see below, after I click on View Results under Competition, the results are too high at 370. So it is time to turn the keyword into a longer long tail keyword to see what results I can get.
