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:

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.

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.

Hey Diabz,

Before I give my succes story I need to know a few things to see if W,A suits your needs.

Do you want to share knowledge, exhibit technique, or share your story?

If yes!
Then W.A is the place for YOU! You get out what you put in whatever you do as Im sure you are aware as a skilled fighter!

I hope this reaches you.

Fact: I have been wanting to work from home since 2012 and program after program I partook nothing transpired and here's why! They just give you downloads to read or a coach who doesn't respond to emails or calls.

Here in the community there are a WAve of people to help you one your way. They have a proven plan laid out step by step ANYONE can follow. Assuming they are mentally capable.

I have created 2 premium websites and got more organized in my life because of these steps. What makes it even better is they offer ranking perks so there is incentive to keep working even when you don't want to!

I have accomplished my 90 day goal in 65 days. That's my success story and I hope you go premium to take advantage of this program! But....

That's only if YOU want it!

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.

I may be jumping the gun here but here is my question? How does all this fit in with my niche. I am selling clothing, specifically black dresses formally and casual. I get that if I were writing specific blogs with information for my customers to take but I am hoping to get an affiliate to sell merchandise. Is the keyword phrases still important?
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...

Hi guys,
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!

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.

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.
Reply
kmer6 Premium
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

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.
