What do you think when you see the term KEYWORD?

Does it excite you or does it give you anxiety?

If it excites you, that is great...we are on the same page. If it gives you anxiety, I am going to spend some time with you here to help you get over your anxiety by SI-MP-LI-FY-ING the process of keyword research for you.

First things first though...

What is a KEYWORD?

A keyword is something that people search for. It doesn't matter what the medium is, whether it is within a Google or Bing search or within your favorite social network, people are using keywords to find stuff.

Your job as a marketer is to target these specific keywords with your targeted marketing offer. Your success as a marketer will depend on the relevance of keyword, your understanding of the audience, and the relevance of your offer.

The main issue I see is people looking at everything in terms of keywords. By this I mean, they lose sight of the fact that there is a REAL PERSON behind every keyword search. The first step is getting ranked or becoming visible within keyword searches, the second step is being able to connect with the "people" behind the search.

Within this training module I am going to walk you through the process of finding quality keywords that can get great rankings and help you understand the "logic" behind keyword selection. Really, a keyword is just a keyword unless you understand the process!

Hi Kyle, great idea you got here! I have a question.
When you outline all your relevant keywords, do you go ahead writing article/post on all of them. As par taking them one after another to explain?
Reply
LindaKwas Premium
I believe you are building a list of keywords here that you can use to target in your posts. You don't have to use all of them. He is showing you how to find the keywords, though, that have good search volume and low competition (low hanging fruit) that you may be able to get ranked with.

Fantastic Information on Keyword Research, Kyle... I understood in detail...My doubt here is How many Keywords I'm permitted to include in an article or post? or Per Page? Is there any that kind of rules and regulations by Google? And What if I add more keywords in my article, Let's say 20-30 keywords in 1000 words article?
Reply

Don't do it like that!!!!
Do single posts for each and every keyword separately!!!

Oh... Sure, Sir... Thank you for your advice...
I'll follow your advice...

LindaKwas Premium
Yes, you target one key word per post, but sometimes you will get ranked for other keywords that just end up in your post naturally.
The keyword can be one word but it is usually more like a phrase. For exampe, instead of just women's shoes, the keyword might be women's pink athletic shoes or women's casual sandals.
Use the keyword in your post title, and then use it once in the first or second paragraph of your post, then you may end up including in again somewhere in your post, but do not "stuff it." Write naturally.

The website StreetArticles.com was mentioned a couple of times. I'm still a little fuzzy how it helps. Also, this article is about 5 years old. Are there other author websites that are better, e.g. ezine.com ?
Reply
BobBarr Premium
Street Articles is no longer recommended for posting content.

From Carson in 2014:
"Article Directories are not something that offer much benefit at all anymore, other than to help Google find your website when it's brand new. That said, the second you share your website at Wealthy Affiliate, Google knows about it within seconds.

Although we own StreetArticlces.com, it's of little value to people to post their content on. We suggest posting all content on your website, not on any directory."

It's so true that you can do all the keyword research and keyword targeting and still miss the "connection" step with your target reader. This step is critical. The more I educate myself on the process of content marketing and internet marketing in general, I'm learning that EVERY step along the way is critical. If you skip a step, any step along the way, you don't help people as much and thus won't earn as much money online. Thanks for this amazing tutorial!

The keyword tool is amazing!! Thanks for breaking it down. I was able to come up with a sub-niche of the topic I was interested in blogging about just by checking popularity against competing websites in google (QSR), and I'm sure it's going to be a hit. Let's see how it goes!

I'm speechless as to how good this keyword research article of Kyle's is. I absolutely loved reading it and all the messages posted here in the past five years. It made me wonder, though, has anyone in the WA community ever done extensive keyword research BEFORE they had settled on a niche and built their website? Or are you supposed to build a website first as per Course 1, Lesson 4?
Reply
trevorfenner Premium
My opinion is that you should do research, but don't miss the practice step while doing research. If you research and practice, then repeat, you'll figure out a way. If you research and don't practice, you won't get anywhere. I started a personal blog so I could practice. The better I get at doing research and creating content, the more likely I'll be able to branch out by creating niche-specific sites in the future. I hope this answer is helpful and good luck!

I have a question. How does google look at keywords? Do they look at the individual words within a phrase as the keywords or does it look at the whole phrase as one keyword?
Reply
MHainsworth Premium
It depends it will look at both really, the main keywords but also the context. For example If a searcher is asking a question Google may look for keywords expected in the answer rather than the question asked. That's why modern keyword research focuses as much on answering genuine questions or supplying quality content rather than focusing on specific individual words or phrases only.

Great Training, and I feel comfortable with the methods. I have two questions unanswered; When I have made a blogpost, with some headlines and of course related content, 1. would it be a good or bad idea to make new blogposts with each the headlines as keyword? I notice they have a tendency of being very close to other keywords related to my niche. 2. What would be the effect of deliberately using keywords as headlines for the different paragraphs(of course very similar to the main keyword of the post) ? If there is a training coming later, please give me a hint what to search for, I haven't found any yet.. In advance, thank you.

You should always use your keywords within the paragraphs of your post or page and you can also use them as titles and in subtitles if you can. The post will tend to rank better if keywords are in them because a keyword is generally what someone is searching for.

Hello Phildarst :)

I'm not aware of this box where you have to put the keyword.

Your keyword can be anything related to your niche. It will be different for every post you write. You need to research keywords that have high search volume and low competition.
Example a keyword might be treating depression with herbal remedies
Your keyword research will tell you if that's a good keyword Tom use and if you could rank well for it

Remember Traffic or monthly searches over50^ and competition from other keywords with that phrase under 300. I found if i write it down that it is easier to remember.

QSR stands for quoted search results. It is the number of websites that have the exact keyword that you typed in. It's your competition for the keyword..

SEO stands for search engine optimization. In jaaxy, it is their rating of the chances of ranking on page one of google. 100 being good odds and 0 meaning you will not likely rank on page one.

KQI is another quality indicator for the keyword. Green means go, red means NO! oh and yellow means cross the intersection if you can't stop in time. or for your keyword.... so-so quality

Thanks for the Keyword training - This information is matter of fact and easy to follow... thank you.

But I do have a question...
I used the WA keyword tool and came across a term that was a common typo and had a really low competition value but when I searched in google without the quotation, google seemed to return results of the non typo. Is it worth trying to rank?

As an example: a common typo like "how to bake a an orange and poppy cake". Lets say it returned 8 sites as direct competition. However when I type the typo into google without the quote marks it returns over a million sites (higher number is to be expected because of no quotes). But the number one site is not the same as with quotations. Is it sill worth trying to rank a typo with a large search volume and low competition when google seems to return the non typo results?

The other confusing thing is when I use the WA Keyword tool and then type the same term into google with quotes the competition is sometimes significantly different. Is this normal? WA results still reliable?

Thanks in advance.

when u use google search, if typo error n it will show correct word , therefore , the result will be based on correct wording.

However, it do show u to choose search result of the error typo search on the top of the screen, which is less sites shown.

ie. I search : make cake : 405.,000,000 result

if u search : make caake : 307,000

it show this:
About 415,000,000 results
Showing results for make cake
Search instead for make caake

I can assure u WA results r reliable.

Thank you so much!
To educate myself enough to search for keywords and to better understand QSR's and monthly searches on my own I viewed many WA videos and read many WA articles before I could feel comfortable and confident doing it on my own.
The subject of keywords is explained very clearly and simply in this Lesson.
I believe I am now armed with enough info and knowledge to charge forward into my own search for keywords!
Thank you so much again!
