PAGE 1 – Finding More Relevant Keywords & Organization

PAGE 2 – Creating a Saved Keyword List

PAGE 3 – Access Your Saved Keyword List

PAGE 4 – Benefits of Using the Dig Feature

In light of my previous training tutorial on how to use the WA Keyword Tool and the great responses I received from all of you who learned the simplicity of our free research tool, I have come up with this new tutorial to explain a few more features that I did not cover the first time. If you have not viewed that training, I highly suggest you do so at the link below.

How to Use the WA Keyword Tool...


GET MORE KEYWORDS FROM YOUR SEARCH


As is seen in the above image, I did a search for 3D Graphic Art. The results were 160 Monthly Searches and the Competition Results were 167. Though I could have used it, I naturally would prefer a low-hanging fruit variety with results below 100. Plus I personally never use a keyword where the Results value is greater than the Monthly Searches.


So I proceeded to look for better relevant keywords to the one I had just searched. To do this I clicked on the word “Searches” at the top of the column and this rearranges all of the keywords in the list by displaying the lowest valued Monthly Searched keyword first, as seen above. But I want to see the keyword with the highest Monthly Searches, so I click on “Searches” again, the results are seen below.


By clicking twice on any of the columns, with the exception of “Competition” and “Dig”, you can rearrange the list to display the highest valued results first. Many times this will display other more relevant and better ranking keywords found elsewhere in the results list.

I was concerned that I would need to pay for jaxy on top of my membership, money is tight so although I'm sure jaxy is great, It's an expence I can do without for now.

So I am very happy that you have shown me the free kw tool is pretty good. Thank you I enjoyed your training, really useful stuff.

Thank you for your tutorial, which is very helpful.
But I am facing a problem, which I don't know how to deal with. I tried the tool making a search on "Security Cameras" key phrase, as I want to advertise security cameras. The result was not very satisfying, as the keywords with enough searches had also high competition. And there were not many keywords that could be placed in the website title. Adding "The best" in the beginning didn't help much, plus I don't want to have "The best security cameras" in the title, as I am not sure I will advertise only the best cameras.
I would appreciate an advise how to move forward...

Hi Dimitry,

What about "wireless home security camera systems" ??? Searches are over 900 and Competition is only 51...and, you have a 9.3 for Article Power.

Jim
Reply
dpreznik Premium
Thank you very much, Jim! I think I may be able to use this one... I am a little concerned with the fact that it limits me to only wireless cameras... Not sure if it is a good thing... Also, it is only one keyword... I am not expecting you to do all the job for me, just trying to figure out the right approach to the problem.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You will have to expand on your target keyword and make it less competitive by being more specific. For example,

security cameras for home - 3245 Searches / 156 QSR

Or instead of the plural, cameras, use the singular, camera, and use,

security camera reviews - 903 Searches / 100 QSR

If you do create reviews, you can get even more specific and reduce competition by using the type or brand name in front of Security Camera Reviews. Example,

home security camera reviews - 359 Searches / 100 QSR
swann security camera reviews - 144 Searches / 13 QSR
or
swann security camera reviews - 96 Searches / 19 QSR

Thanks so much for the article! Does the keyword tool also help when placing ads with Bing Ads and Google Ads as well? I'm an affiliate marketer and so far I haven't had much luck with using Bing ads. It's not driving traffic to my site.

Also, is there an article that discusses where to put this in the Meta tags in the webpage? Or some sort of structure?

Thanks again for this article!

boomergp08 Premium
Your keywords only need to go into your page or post title area at the top of your WordPress editor window and then once again in the first paragraph of your content.

You do not want to place your keywords in the Meta Tag areas under the WordPress editor window. Google does not need to see your target keyword in more than the two areas I mentioned above.

As for Bing Ads, if you type Bing Ads in the search bar at the top of the screen, Kyle has created training on how to use Bing Ads.

I would not use keywords that display <10, which means less than 10.

Hi Rob,

Thanks very much for your time explaining in details how to use the free Keyword Tool. After completing the Jaaxy training I went on to your tutorial Part 1 and just completed Part 2.

Keyword search has always been my weak point, but your training has really clarified many points for me. I am left with a question:

When doing a search I come up with an awful lot of keywords/phrases that could be suitable, so my question is, what is a good number to retain?

For my first blog I have chosen for niche "Cure Psoriasis Holistically", that's the title of my blog. I wanted to use this topic because I have recently created a blog with Blogger and although I knew nothing about Keyword search then, I think I was already doing very well as far as page views is concerned so I thought that perhaps with WordPress and a good mastery of keyword search, I should do better.

I have attached a screenshot of a key phrase I think looks good to me, what do your think?

Thanks again for your help Rob and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

John

boomergp08 Premium
That keyword looks like a good one to use, with a high search value and a competition at 173.

Though the training on keywords by Kyle says that the monthly searches should be more than 50 and the competition should be less than 300, I always strive for a competition of less than 200 if not 100 and below.

You are welcome. You just have to remember what a keyword is. Keywords are words and phrases people type into Google and other search engines to find the information they seek.

So when doing keyword research all you are doing is researching the Search and Competition numbers of a keyword to see if it will be good enough to use for the chance at higher rankings.

That is because Google is NOT a keyword research tool.

Google is a search engine and like all search engines it will give you inflated results. It will add to the results ALL other relevant information that is not the actual keyword you are researching.

Thanks for the excellent and practical tips.

So do we even need to look at the number of results on the Google search page when deciding on keywords?

You are welcome.

No, you should only look at the results numbers from the keyword tool because Google results are not accurate.
Reply

Thanks Robert for the clarification. Other posts and training recommended looking at the Google search results page. This made things confusing because the Google search results did not correlate with the WA Keywords Tool results.

Now I know to only use the data from the WA Keywords Tool.

Both of these lessons were useful for me. The keyword tool seems simple enough, but to be effective you need to know how to use it well. So thanks.

A question though about making your long tail keyword into a question. How do you work that into your content for SEO, while maintaining readability?

I use Yoast. According to them, the correct keyword density is between 0.5 and 2.5%.

So let's say your keyword is "what is the best free keyword research tool" Let's also say your post is the minimum of 300 words. According to my testing with Yoast, if you use the keyword once (in the heading) then the density is 0.3%. Too low. Use it one more time and the density is 0.7%. Good. Keep going use the keyword a total of 7 times. That's 2.3%. Any higher is bad.

Now let's write a great 600-word post. After using the keyword in the heading, we'd need to use the keyword between 2 and 15 more times. That seems like a lot of "what is the best free keyword research tool".

Maybe I'm overthinking it. Wouldn't be the first time I've done that.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
First off do not pay any attention to the Yoast keyword density rule. It no longer applies to SEO and hasn't since 2014. Google does not require it no matter how long or short your content is. Mentioning your target keyword more than twice in your content has no benefit and can even hurt your rankings.

Keyword density is one of those out-dated SEO techniques that keeps getting spread like backlinks, that Google does not require anymore for high rankings. I consistently get high Google rankings by only placing the keyword in my title, first paragraph and maybe near the end of my content. No more is needed.

That being said, it is extremely easy to incorporate a long tail keyword question in your content. When your content is conversational all you do is begin your content with that long tail keyword question and then go on to answer it. No need to repeat it, Google understands what your content is about.
Reply
DTenter Premium
If that's the case (that it's an outdated technique) I wonder why Yoast still has it in their tool. They even posted an article about it just a couple of months ago. https://yoast.com/keyword-density-post-panda/ Doesn't seem like they think it's outdated.

I'm not saying you're wrong. It's just that from the perspective of a Yoast user, it's confusing.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
That post explains exactly what I said about target keyword density being outdated. Yoast has finally acknowledged that using the same target keyword multiple times in the content is not a good thing anymore.

Google doesn't rank website content based on how often a target keyword is used like they did years ago. They rank you on your over all context of content and your use of LSI keywords. Content can be somewhat dense with LSI because they are synonyms.

All that Google needs to see is the focus keyword in the title, in the first paragraph, and maybe one more time near the end if the content if it is long enough. This is what Kyle teaches here at WA. Like Matt Cutts said, there is no real benefit to mention your keyword more than a couple of times.

Thanks for doing part 2 of the Keyword Tool training. I have a better understanding on how to use Dig. I did not know about clicking Search to view the lowest or highest searched words.

It's great to know that you can still rank page 1 of Google using a free keyword tool than a paid one.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
There is no difference in how the keywords are researched in the free WA keyword tool than in the paid Jaaxy keyword tool. They are both the same in that respect.

The only difference other than the cost is that Jaaxy does more than keyword research. Jaaxy is for people who want to research domain names, find out where web pages are being ranked, and other things.

But when it comes to searching for low competition keywords that will help you to get Google page 1 rankings, the free WA keyword tool does a fantastic job and there are many members here like myself who use it exclusively.

Hi Robert, quick question: if there are 0 (zero) websites listed when I "View Result" for keywords with above 50 searches... then what? Should I still consider that keyword? Thanks! :)

50 searches and 0 competition sounds pretty good to me! I'd go for it :)

Thanks so much! I've got no excuses now.... except... I've been holding back on adding keywords until I feel there's enough rich content on my sites. Not sure I want my sites discovered by the general public just yet. Thats another whole leap of faith, isn't it?

I know the exact feeling. I too was self-conscious to be "found" on Google by organic traffic.

But I've learnt something, everything is a snowball process — everything from keyword research to producing content, sourcing for images, making sure your site, pages and posts are SEO-optimised, etc...

So if you don't add your keywords while you're writing content, then you'd have to go back to do it, it's like doing "twice the work", since the process has to be revisited, as opposed to writing and having peace of mind after, as the page is crawled/indexed by Google, it attracting traffic, your audience being engaged, etc etc etc...

I know WA members post fantastic results of their site appearing on page 1 of Google seemingly instantaneously, but it doesn't happen for everyone — factors depending. So while you're at it, before organic traffic picks up for you, might as well start from A to Z and keep moving forward, instead of knowing at the back of your mind you've to go back and "fix things" later. Not saying things shouldn't be fixed when a problem is found, but have a forward-moving mindset is what I'm saying.

I hope this sharing wasn't too overwhelming. I personally experienced this, so I just wanted to offer my thoughts. I wish you every success in 2016 :)

Relax, nobody will discover your website so soon. If somebody does, it is good for you, it means that your keywords are important for your customers and somebody looks for answer or information. There are millions of website. Just add content as Kyle told, use keywords and it takes time for your website to be seen and recognized.
All the best and good luck.

Very reassuring, thanks Nemira.

boomergp08 Premium
Don't hold back on the keywords, that is not a smart thing to do because you are just creating more work for yourself. Plus it will not stop your content from being discovered because Google does not index and rank your content solely on your keywords. All of your content is indexed and ranked within days of publishing it.

Ooh - oops - so if I understand you correctly, not starting with keywords is actually counterproductive... now my site has to claw its way up the ranks. Ok... lesson learnt.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Yes, there is a reason why keywords are taught within the first 10 lessons.

pamdemonium Premium
Yes, that's the word, "counterproductive" :P

I think something annoying about the Keyword Tool is the captcha that appears when too many searches are done - when one clicks "View Results" under Competition too frequently. Having to key in the captcha ever so often is highly interruptive to the research process.

Any advice or work around this? Thanks so much!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
I agree but it is not a WA problem or anything they can do about, that I know of. That captcha is a Google generated captcha. The same thing happens on Google if you search over and over again frequently, though not as frequent as WA.
Reply
pamdemonium Premium
Ok, I see. Thank you for your reply. Hope if the captcha appears, it does not mean we have violated anything on Google! Or like, our IP address gets blackmarked or something...

More awesome training thank you ! Will soon find out but I think uncertainty about keywords has been a big contributor to my difficulty creating content. Now that is cleared up so I should be out of excuses....

boomergp08 Premium
Don't let it be a problem Mike. There is no hard and fast rule that says you must use a keyword for every page.

Sure it helps with rankings but Google indexes all of you content and ranks you on that content and not just the keywords.

So if you cannot think of a keyword, just write without one. Content is more important than keywords.

Thanks Robert. I've been using the keyword search since I first joined and never knew about clicking on search, etc to rearrange the order. That makes it a lot easier to look at what comes up!

boomergp08 Premium
You are welcome Debby. These subtle little featues definitely make the use of the WA keyword tool more robust than just the simplicity of the core research functions I described in my part 1 of the WA keyword tool training.

I do a lot of keyword research for a weekly blog I write for another WA member and the clicking twice of the column headings, especially Search helps me to find many other relevant keywords much quicker, and then the Dig feature also helps.
Reply
Dmorrow Premium
I've used Dig before. But clicking the search header - that's a really cool feature too - I don't remember Kyle going over that, but I could have missed it - I was so totally green when I went through that part of training, lol.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Kyle didn't go through any of this in the training, just some basic research techniques. This is the main reasons why I have done these two-part training tutorials on the WA keyword tool because many people here use it instead of Jaaxy.

You are welcome Ken. I had realised when I did the first taining on the WA keyword tool that there were features of the tool that I use, that I didn't make mention of. This was done on purpose so as not to overwhelm everyone with too much information too soon.

Plus this new information is more for enhancing the core aspect of keyword research, which is what the other training was mainly about. I'm happy you liked my part 2 of the WA keyword training.

I was wondering if there is anyone way to remove a specific keyword from a list? My saved keyword lists are getting long and I have used some of the keywords in articles, so I was hoping to remove them from the list and keep only the ones I haven't used yet. But I cannot figure out a way to do this. Hopefully it can be done.

Thanks!
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
Unfortunately Tonya I do not believe there is. I have been looking for a way but I have not found a way, so I have been creating shorter lists.

Then when I have a list with a few keywords remaining, I just copy & paste them into a text file on my computer labelled Un-used Keywords.
