Keywords. This is a term that very few people truly understand and because of this I wanted to go into some detail and explain what a keyword is and why it is important to your business.

Basically, a keyword is simply any "term" or "phrase" that someone types into Google when looking for something. This is the start of all SEO campaigns, paid ad campaigns, and ultimately if you understand keywords and how to find them, you are going to be VERY successful online.

To follow through this training, you are going to need at the very least a free Jaaxy.com account. You can register for that here:

http://www.jaaxy.com/createaccount/

If you have any questions about any of the content within this video or need help coming up with keywords, do let me know and I will give you a hand.

**Another Great Video**

Alphabet Soup Technique - If you use this technique to come up with "keyword ideas" and then put them into Jaaxy or the keyword tool at WA, you are going to have unlimited keywords (regardless of the niche) at your disposal. I highly recommend you check out this video.

Q1.I cannot get into Jaaxy (tried about 20 times). So where do I go to start up WAs version, please?

Q2. Once best KWs selected how do I use them? I presume in my posts, but should they be bold? or Italics? or caps? or (KW)
and how frequently per (say) 100 words, or 500 words of post?

Keyword tool is located at the left side of the WA page under training. You will add the keywords in your post just like every other text. Continue your online training and you will see how to use it.

I'm still confused about one thing, should the word or phrase we are choosing be common to people (i.e. people always think about searching and use it) or it should be special?
For example, i used (smart objects) as an indication for retouching images while preserving the quality, so do i have to search about (smart objects) which doesn't make sense to most people or try to use something straight forward to what i actually mean!

Common to people.

The easy way to explain it is by putting yourself in the shoes of your traffic. What keywords would someone oblivous to your content would have to type in for your website to show up?

Example. If your website is about photoshop editing you would add keywords that people are already searching for like “how to use photoshop”

Hope this helps :)

Hi Kyle! Hi everyone!

I'm not sure I understood well the process of making website content and choosing keywords.

Should I first look for the low competition keywords and based on that choose the topic for my posts?

Or vice versa? I write about something I think it's useful and then search for the keywords that will promote my post?

Thanks!

Is it true that the Jaaxy subscription jumped from $19/month to $49/month? The latter seems steep if you have a new website. Yes, you can leverage some free searches, but it doesn't seem sustainable unless you're pulling in more revenue than the cost of hosting, membership, and a Jaaxy subscription. I'd be interested in hearing about others' experience with this.

Yes it went up in September because they added huge functionality in Jaaxy for the ability to track your rankings in Google, Yahoo & Bing. We all had the opportunity to get grandfathered in to the lower rate before the rate changed.

You don't need Jaaxy, the WA keyword search tool should suffice if you don't have the funds for it, but you just need to be more creative on your own to find more keywords.

Jaaxy just makes it much easier to come up with more keywords as it has other abilities to dig deeper as well as it can go through the alphabet technique for you instead of you doing it manually.

Hope this helps,

Hi all. I just went through Jaaxy and the Keyword Tool and have a great list of keywords related to my niche. I reviewed the video again and the Jaaxy tutorial, so apologies if I missed it, but are there keywords that are too long? In Kyle's example, he types in basketball skills and there are multiples keywords that are 2, 3 or 4 words long. When I type in keywords related to my niche, baby sleep training, a lot of the keywords are 4, 5, 6 + words long. Does that matter? Thanks!

Long keywords are usually low hanging keywords and easy to get higher google rank. As long as there is a good amount of traffic, it can go long, however, I would say up to 5 or 6 words.

I see a lot of people doing reviews on other marketing programs only to plug their own. For instance I will type in google Review on Techademics and it will bring up a blog review with the title "Is Techademics a Scam? or something similiar. Is this a good way to use keywords and blog or are these tactics too popular?
Reply
SeanGreentre Premium
It's a good question. I seem to recall that this was covered in one of the certification lessons, though I may have read it it someplace else maybe! In essence, it said that this use of approaching a review by focusing the keyword research on negative keywords or phrases, such as "XYZ... is it a scam" is a good way of generating good quality traffic as it's usually the first thing someone who has no idea of what their possibly letting themselves in for, searches for, and they look to seek reassurance before making a financial commitment. In fact, from memory, I think it was this exact technique that allowed me to find WA :-). So it clearly works! Is it overdone now? Possibly, though I guess it depends on what product or service you are looking to promote - some will have more competition than others I guess.

That was a lot of great information, but a very quick run through. I can see the importance of Jaaxy, but definitely want to stick with the free trial first. Three questions regarding the Jaaxy free trial.

1. I typed in my keyword and I got a pop up box, covering the last 5 results that said 'Upgrade to Unlock Full Access', but I am not able to delete that box. Does that mean every time I do a search, I won't be able to see the last few results?

2. Under Domains, it reads Upgrade. I assume that means with the free trial, I can't see if that domain is available, correct?

3. I think I may have gotten a little confused with the 'Average' column. We want to target lower competition traffic, but Kyle mentioned that he aims for between 30 - 50 +. Is that the average we're looking for? I need further explanation here.

Thank you!

Hey Brandy,

1.) You are correct, free Jaaxy accounts do not get to see the last 5 results.

2.) You can see if a domain name is available by using the following link: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/domains

3.) That is the average that Kyle explains that he has found works best.

The following video tutorial may offer you further help: Hope this helps you.

Hi, so I understood keyword search - finding out words which are key to building your blog. I needed to clarify one thing: So say I find keywords for example - "verticle basketball soles", "basketball skills and drills". So I have decided on 2 keywords. What am I supposed to do with the keywords now? - Do I write posts to hit those specific keywords? If yes, (a) how many posts per keyword (b) how many times is that keyword supposed to come in that post and if not - what am I to do with the keywords?
Reply
MozMary Premium
the targeted keywords are not just key to your blog, they are what people are searching for, so they are a strategy for traffic

2 targeted keywords = 2 posts [the rest of your content is natural keywords]

put them in the heading and first paragraph...
Reply
Stevo727 Premium
After choosing keywords, you incorporate them into your content. Like say your "Vertical basketball soles" could be used as the title of your content, and then throw it in there again once in a while near the middle or so. You can use them how you like just remember not to overload on them.

Hi Kyle

just checked out the Jaaxy site but it doesn't show .com or .org on the right side, as it did with your demo video. Is that because i am not a premium user at present ? My search showed some pretty good potential, if i am reading it correctly.
Please let me know when you can

jaaxy and Premium membership at WA are two different things, if any features in Jaaxy are not available to you right now it would be to do with the Jaaxy program itself, the jaaxy trial doesn't give all the features

I have a few questions for folks who have already mastered affiliate marketing. Do you have some sort of routine for keyword research, like once a week to gather great keywords and then allocate some time in the week to write articles around those keywords? How many articles do you usually publish every week? And how long, on average, are your articles? Thank you :)
Reply
MozMary Premium
Great question, Miri!

Affiliate marketing is all about content and keyword research is a key strategy so establishing a habit is a great way to be thinking from the very beginning.

An average number of articles to publish per week is 2-3, some people will do more, but consistency in key here.

The average length, may depend on your niche to some extent but you will see in sitehealth that it tells us to aim for approx 1500 words, it can be more or less of course.

What you say about allocating time for keyword research - well that is an excellent idea, you'll find some people are more organized than others when it comes to that. It also depends on the person and niche, you'll see some people going to keywords as an idea for their articles, and vice versa with other people knowing what they want to write then choosing the keywords.

You might enjoy some of magistudios' webinars [can be accessed in the 'live classes' in the left menu, either live or replay] and check out boomergp08 and jvranjes for more on keywords [and other members in the search bar]

I like the way you think ;)

Hello to everyone!

I would like to ask is't okay if the keywords quite long or better to have a short keywords?

And second one when I checking for keywords in Jaaxy and I found the keyword with the value of QSR is 0. Is't very good to be ranked up in search engine?
Reply
greenkg24 Premium
You definitely don't want really long keywords. Remember, you are trying to match things that people will type in search engines. I try and keep mine anywhere from 4 to 7 words in length.

Having a QSR of 0 means that no one is competing for that specific keyword on the internet. This can be great, but only if it adds traffic to your website.

When finding keywords, look for low QSR (under 100) with traffic.

Hope this helps!

I would like to ask if anyone has been stumbling into this problem with the Jaaxy video that I just run into.
Basically I watched 6 minutes and all of a sudden it stopped working with a message saying "The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported".

Tried starting over the page, logging out and inn again but it still appears.

Never had any problem with the earlier videos and it is a bit annoying being that this is a main importancy tutorial regarding "keywords".

The video addressing Keyword Mastery was very beneficial and valuable because it provided clear direction on how to search for keywords/phrases that make sense. The video also explained the various column headings and their acronyms linked to a keyword/phrase search, which is extremely important.

I liked the alphabet soup technique as well, considering it reveals additional keywords based on your search performed in Google, which you would copy/paste into the Jaaxy search window and search.

Overall and the Most Important Take Away from the Video:

1. Ensure your keyword/phrase is low competition (QSR).
2. Ensure your keyword/phrase makes sense.
3. Ensure your keyword/phrase is getting traffic (Avg).

This is a valuable video. Thank you Kyle.

The video demo was good and made clear the process to search for keyword phrases. There has been a significant change in the visual appearance of jaxxy since the video was made but the tabs are all there, in the same location, it just looks different. However, when I did my first jaaxy search it was bogus.
1. There are only ten results that can be see
2. There is no QSR
3. There is no SEO
4. There is no KQI
5. There are no Domains
If this typical for the "free" version, jaxxy may as well not offer the free version. There are no results. You must pay to get any results. Which is not a issue but really jaxxy what a dishonest way to force the sales. This really is a reflection of the idea you can't get anything for free. In jaxxy, free gets you just what you paid, nothing.

You're always free to use the Wealthy Affiliate Keyword Tool Bar on the left panel of your screen. Similar results, but no cost to you.

I personally signed up for the paid version at Jaaxy for about $16 per month, and I find it very useful. You can save specific keywords, make lists, enact further research. I didn't see anything specifically sneaky in the video, it's just an older version of the site. I still find everything I need within today's version.

Again though, the in-house keyword bar works just fine. If you're not interested in spending any money, it'll do you just fine.

Happy searching!

There is so much to learn. I'm just glad I can go back and forth to lessons. As a new member to this line of business, I feel like I'm in another world. I'm so grateful for all the help from the videos, posts, and comments from everyone.

How many words is each post expected to be when creating the content? Would the system check for any grammatical errors? English is not my first language and I'm sure the content has to be at an acceptable standard of quality. How would I go around this?

From what you wrote here, your English seems fine to me. :) Your writing doesn't have to be formal, it's just conversational just like the way you wrote that comment.

There is a website called Grammarly that you can search on google to help you if you really want to but from what I'm reading, your English seems good. :)

How many words? As many as you can. :) Minimum 500 words but as you get better at writing, try for 1,000+.

Trust me, the more you write, the better you'll get. I've seen huge improvements in my own writing and I can't even write under 1000 words if my life depended on me!

You're just beginning so take your time and learn at your pace, you will find your rhythm and write even better as each month passes.

The important thing is to keep doing it on a consistent basis! :)

The WA keyword tool looks almost the same as the Jaaxy tool except it doesn't have a KQI and SEO results, but it has 'PPC' and 'Article Power', whatever that means, I havn't gotten to that yet.

Hi Isabelle,

I used the free keyword tool here for about a month, when I switched to Jaaxy, it just made my daily tasks so much easier and I started to understand how to target keywords better.

The thing I like about Jaaxy is that I can check my keyword competition, brainstorm for different content ideas, store my keywords, and check my post rankings.

This way I can track my traffic and if I need to improve upon a post or get more comments on it, I can control it's rankings better.

I go with Jaaxy yearly, so it's like 50 cents/day. If you are thinking of using it at all, you've got a few weeks to get grandfathered into the old pricing structure.

They did a bunch of upgrades and are increasing it's price, but it's still cheaper than any other keyword tool out there and works great.

I use 5 tools to run my online business. WA, Jaaxy, Aweber, Lead Pages, and writers. I do all the seo and manage the site and it's a pretty efficient system.

Hope that helps,
Todd

You try to use a single, relevant but different keyword for every page and post you create for your site. You put it in the title and first paragraph and write naturally around it. For example, one of your keywords for an orchid site might be "prune orchids", so for one post the title might be "How to prune orchids" and the first para might contain, "The best way to prune orchids is...". That's it!

1. Do people really search things like "10 foods to eat to lose belly fat"? With a specific # like that?
2. The Jaaxy results were almost all green. Is that the reality of things?
3. Many in Jaaxy list ARE grammatically incorrect. Why is that if Google won't rank page that is incorrect?
4. I did my 1st Jaaxy search and everyting past 15 calls for an upgrade. Seems strange when the whole purpose of this training is to get experience using the tool, and now I'm limited. Kind of an "upsell" right off the bat.

Hi, GENOA
1 people do search for some weird things you can also type a term in to google and see the results,take note of the number of sites that gives you a strong idea.
2. Well you get what you pay for really and the idea i think is to find the lower competition key words. as for being grammatically correct you some times need to tweek the terms to suit.
3.I have found that google ranks things that are incorrect but notice the correct suggestions are next to the wrong ones.
4. Again you wont find anything like jaxxy for accuracy and over the long term you want to get get ranked for the lowest competition keywords to get more free traffic.

Since keywords are so important to getting traffic. i don't want to get this wrong. Please bear with me.

I'm a little confused with the total amount of key words needed and how they are used.

How many keywords is enough? 500, 1,000. 10.000? Let's say i come up with 500 keywords/keyword phrases that meet the competition and search criteria in Jaaxy, Do I write 500 articles/posts using one keyword per article/post? Or, do i take 10-15 of the keywords/phrases and try to write an article/post containing all of them?

Roughly how many keywords should you use per sentence, paragraph, page, or post? Is there a certain percentage of recommended keywords based on the size of the post or article? Are you penalized for over doing your keywords?
Reply
botipton Premium
This question has a whole lesson in keywords by itself so let me answer a couple of these butnot all of them.

You do not need that many keywords but whatever your keywords for that post you use as you write the content.

Your keywords need to be related to your niche. You would have Basketball goals as a keyword or post on a blog about car repair.

The latest I have been hearing is that keywords have to flow naturally in the content and not to be stuffed in there just to get ranking.

Are you penalized for over doing your keywords which is called keyword stuffing. Yes. But you have to work at it to over do it. As long as the keywords are added as a natural flow of the content you will be okay.

Hope this helps on some of the questions.

Reply
VitaliyG Premium
Yes because the phrase is what the person types into search engines to see your blog, therefore you can think of keywords as the fish hook :)
Reply
E-Udoh Premium
BIG YES!!!!

Keywords are extremely important and very powerful in terms of having search engines find you.

Most people who surf the web use specific words or phrases...

e.g: Formal black dresses (is a potential keyword that you can go after and bring potential people to your site).

So if you target phrases or keywords and get those people to your site, then you have won half of the battle...

The more people who visit your site = many potential sales.

Targeted keywords can lead to improving your site ranking. And who does not want that?

Check out how to use keywords and improve your site ranking... fyi: Not all keywords carry the same value...so it's best to go with low hanging fruit (less competitive ones of course with enough monthly search and traffic). I hope this helps...

I just finished my Jaaxy lesson, although it provides good keywords i think is a weak tool in providing keywords for searches made in a specific language and not English. This is not very helpful considering if i want to build a website in a specific language, let's say Romanian.

I just read a comment about domains that got me thinking... When I became premium member, I chose to own my own domain instead of a free website. But I have not been prompted to pay anything and my current website (although its still a blank canvas for now) has the site.rubix at the end of it.

Will I be prompted to purchase a domain or do I need to take the initiative to do that myself?

Hi
When you created your website you could choose between a siterubix or your own domain, so you choose a siterubix, right?
Any way you can create your own website anytime, you just have to go to Siterubix, Site Domains and create your website.

So many 'key' pieces of information.

I typed 'Moroccan' as 'Morrocan, to see the point made by Kyle on grammer. I found plenty of sites with the incorrect version. As a customer, when I see something spelt like that, I shy away, and lose confidence in the site and product.

This video reminded me of the important details required to present a professional website.

Thank you Kyle!

Very useful information but no surprise there. I'll be honest though, I am so glad there is a Keyword search within Wealthy Affiliate. I understand it may not be as powerful as Jaaxy but I did freak out a little bit thinking to myself " oh no more stuff to buy".

I will definitely look into becoming a member of Jaaxy as I gain revenue but I'll stick to the basics for now!

Hi everyone I'm new to this and am feeling a tad overwhelmed at the moment. I have enjoyed the training heaps but have found in this video that I have had to pause so often to try to get info into my head......can't wait to put it into action though. Hopefully I am not the only person who feels a bit crazy right now ???

Hi Shelly
Also mother of two young men... I first used the WA keyword tool to practice and figure out what all the numers mean then I use Jaaxy to give more details or to fine tune them...I do this because of the limit on the number of checks Jaaxy gives when it's free...I know sometimes it feels like information overload...sometimes you have to step away for a bit..go for a walk and get back to it. All the best on your journey!

Hi
Just a question as I'm new to this. I just want to know I am understanding this correctly.

Say for example I want people to find my site (not specific content just yet)

I would add the keyword i decide to use to my site description on the SEO plug-in?
Reply
LieneG Premium
You need to write post or create page and use keywords in the text and after put keywords after post (SEO plugin will ask for title, description and keywords (depending on what plugin you use).
Reply
kmer6 Premium
Yes, Jeannel, before you write any post or pages you must have a description of what your site is all about.

For example, if you wanted to be a referral site for WA, one choice of keywords for your site would be "work from home", or "making passive income".

Once you plug in your site's keyword, THIS becomes the 'niche' that your site is about. All other blog posts or pages will now elaborate more on this niche.

Good question, I hope this helps.

I have problems finding good keywords. After 11 searches I could not find anything with low competition AND good traffic. But I don't think that my niche is that bad. It is about sustainable gifts.

Is it possible that Jaaxy doesn't work that well with keywords that are not in English? As my mother tongue is German I will also write in German and therefore search for German keywords.

I really can't believe that there is so much competition altough nobody is interested in that topic? Do you think I should look for another niche? Or do you know another keyword tool I could use?

I thought Google has a tool like that aswell? Thanks for your help, I am a little desperate right now.

Hi Nives,
I see you are a new member to WA. Welcome!!

I had the same problem in that I couldn't find anything with low competition AND good traffic for my niche - I had to do a lot of thinking outside of the box - I don't think you should look for another niche if this is your passion - I kept with my niche and made a recent sale.

Maybe you could use Google Translate to translate your keywords from German to English, then plug the English equivalent into Jaaxy. Will that work for you?

Wishing you much success with your online business.
Reply
Thanks a lot! I tried the English equivalents now and found some suitable keywords. I just hope that the scores are comparable with the German market as I guess, it is not the exact same. SEO and Google are my greatest challenges right now because I am always ranked very badly, also with my personal food blog. I hope I will find the key soon! :)

okay, this was a great video, but I do have a question and it might seem really dumb, but I will ask anyhow. So, you find all these amazing keywords and then you choose some (also, how to chose from so many options? haha). What do you do with them? Do you write blog pages in your website with these exact keywords? Will this show up in google then?
ok, thanks ;)
Reply
chuw5 Premium
Yeah I think so, though you could get ranked in Google even if your content doesn't have the exact keyword but similar in meaning. Keyword stuffing in writing pages is actually not the best way to be recognized by Google since they rate for quality of content too.

Good day to you Mariana, you asked a good question. Finding good keywords: 1. You enter keyword choices what you think other people would enter into the search box. Then the keyword tool displays the search volume, the amount of traffic searching with that term, and the number of competing websites for each keyword phrase. You must select the best keyword phrase from all the choices the keyword tool displayed.
Sounds difficult right? Actually, it is a numbers game.
2. What you are looking for is a keyword phrase that has a high number of searches but very little competition. Once you have selected the best choice, then yes, you write an article with the keyword phrase as your subject.
3. As you probably already know the search engines, Google, Bing, Yahoo, find websites by matching the search term with the closest matching websites. If your website uses the exact search term as the title of an article that someone searched for, then your website article ranks as number 1, 2, etc in the SERPS (search engine results page).
I hope this is helpful to you.

Use Google Instant First, then the Keyword tool on WA. Doing this seems to be a way of using your 30 Jaaxy searches more effectively. I wasted 3 before it started to click then came here to see others comments.
thanks to all for your input.

Good information...but I think SEO can be more complicated as the Search Engine algorithms have frequent updates not to mention the time it will take to create valuable content. My question is wouldn't it be a better use of time to learn paid traffic strategies so you can have instant traffic instead of waiting for months to see if your sites will make it to page 1?

Hi Kyle, guess you may be already aware but Jaaxy make it very hard to use if you do not upgrade not displaying the info and not allowing access to most of the results which forces you to make more searches, very different from how you were able to use it in the training video.
Reply
ChrisGooden Premium
The Jaaxy demo shows how you COULD use it.

You already have a perfectly functional free keyword tool here at WA. Jaaxy is simply an alternative you may want to consider if you need more punch. As for burning up your free Jaaxy searches, that's because you are using it not the way you were instructed. Jaaxy is NOT a search tool. It is a RE-Search tool.

Yes, found that out now, just thought our run through Jaaxy was going to be a bit more than a demo. I have found a traing module on WA for their Keyword tool so will be going there next.

I'm ashamed to admit it but I've never actually used the WA keyword tool.

I met Jaaxy after several years with Noble Samurai - a brilliant tool but seriously OTT. Jaaxy was SO much simpler I bought it in a heartbeat and never looked back.

Thank you, useful but confused on one point.

The free site I created during first week of membership was before this lesson. Have chosen title for website.

If I choose to purchase domain would I have to stick to exact wording of title as in free website, or could I amend. Just mindful of Kyle's instruction regarding being grammatically correct. Not sure my website title is. Dose this matter or is it more important that any content created is grammatically correct eg full sentences!

Not sure why keyword teaching comes after we choose a website name and not before! Sure I am missing something here!

I agree with you about this, I wish I saw this video before I made up my mind about the name of the website. I think part of it is to encourage you to choose a niche you are interested in rather than choose something that has low competition. As far as the name of the website, I believe you cannot change it, as in the URL. You do get two free websites in case you would like to create a new one. I wouldn't worry so much about the name of your website as much as the content of the website. That's what is really important in search results.

So these keyword/phrases that we find that have a low QSR and high SEO rating, are we then trying to include them in what we write on our pages/posts? Do we add these keywords in our SEO settings for rankings?? not sure what to do with killer keywords/phrases once they are narrowed down..
Reply
STillman1 Premium
You'd use them to focus your posts and pages on. For instance when you generate these keywords you'd want someone to find your blog post or page on your website when someone enters that keyword phrase which will target your post or page. That said, you want to mention that keyword in your post or on your page a few times without stuffing the page with the keyword making it sound unnatural. Google used to slap people for keyword stuffing. Search for this term and you'll understand what I mean. Hope this helps!

So on using keywords, I think I understand the basics. It's the words that are typed into google, it displays how many times someone clicks on something that has those words in a specific order, as well as the competition among marketers or websites that use that specific pattern of keywords. So lets say I used some type of keyword tool, would it serve to my advantage was named after a based set of keywords of my choice? Or does it not matter to much when it comes to website names? Do these keywords make for good post titles?
Reply
STillman1 Premium
Not sure of the quality of your question but I believe you want to know if it makes good sense to use the keywords as post titles. If that's true, then you could definitely do that but the whole post would have to be relevant to that keyword phrase. You don't have to always title your posts using the keywords but definitely tag the posts with the keywords and have the title reflect the phrase in some kind of way if you don't use it for the title. Your content must be relevant to that keyword and you should use the keyword in your post or page two to three times MAX which would highly optimize it but do not stuff the keyword in the post beyond that because Google spiders will recognize what you're doing and you may be penalized for keyword stuffing. Just use the keyword a few times and let your content flow naturally by strategically sprinkling the keyword throughout the post. Keep in mind the length of the post or page content will also determine how many times you can safely use the keyword in it. If you use the keyword more than three times in a post it may look suspicious because relevant content will do the trick just the same. Hope this helps!

I love the keyword tool. Really helps to give insight. Normally I just google something, pick the first few websites then "view page source" to see what their keywords are that are ranking them on first page. But this really helps to streamline the keywords and as it says on the one tool "dig" to find the best for your content.

This Video was very helpful. Especially to those of us to have the ambision and the desire to try something new, but just don't have enough knowledge to complete these tasks on our own without a little help.

I have always been a quich learner when it comes to a visual experience and that is exactly what you have created here by having the videos that show people exactly what to do.

I look forward to learning more. My Jaaxy account is started and I am on my way. My question at this poinmt so I know in advance is.... Should I create a pay pal account? WIll they send a check? I don't currently have a bank account. I use prepaid credit cards for my online transactions. WIll this affect the outcome of my success?

Thank you for this awesome oppertunity to learn about how this works with the 7 day free membership that gives me time to make sure all my ducks are inline before launching into the pond.

Truly Grateful

Need help!

1. In doing keyword search in Jaaxy for 'Public Speaking' I get in 'avg' 9,709 - meaning that there has been that number of searches in Google plus other major search engines on average/month


2. When I search for the same 'Public Speaking' in Google I get 53,300,000 websites - meaning all the existing websites indexed in Google

Is my understanding correct?

Thanks.

When searching in Google for the same keyword make sure you include quotes like this “Public Speaking” and go to the last page of Google to see the exact number of websites that are competing for the same keyword. Check out this tutorial.

Kyle,

I viewed the video and registered for the free Jaxxy account.
I think I may have a good niche because every search I did had a green KQI indicator, low competition (they range from 0 to 110) and high SEO numbers (85 and above).

The big issue is, on the whole, the amount of traffic in my searches is very low also.

Should I be concerned or am I breaking new ground here?

hey, I just wanted the clarification on the USAGE of these keywords. Initially I didn't know where the keywords would be used, but after reading the comments, am I correct in saying that they are to be used WITHIN the content of my blog posts? e.g. If my keyword is "5 tips to lose belly fat", I can make a new post of the same title, or include these words in the actual post?

There are more important places than others where you should include your keywords: in your title (most important place), in h2 tags and naturally along your post's text.

Just don't overuse them or else Google will mark your content as keyword stuffing and won't rank you high on the search results.
