You have likely heard the term "keyword research". This is the act of finding keyword phrases that are relevant to your niche and deciding whether or not it is appropriate to build content around that particular keyword.

Keywords are going to be the “root” of all your SEO success.


A keyword is simply a word or phrase that people search for in the search engines. Every time you do a google search you are entering a "keyword" into the search box.

For example, here is an example search I did in Google.

The "calorie based diet" input is a keyword. I searched for something that I was looking for and Google is going to provide me with the most relevant results (see below).

When I click on one of these results, I am taken to a website that has been "ranked" in Google. If I purchase something from that page or click an ad, that website owner will make money as a result.

With your SEO and your keyword research efforts, your goal is going to be to building a list of relevant keywords to your niche, and then working to rank them in Google just like this.

There are literally MILLIONS of keywords in every niche, leading to incredible potential. And by being a member at Wealthy Affiliate and what you are going to learn here about proper "ranking techniques", you are going to have the competitive edge over your competition.

In this lesson you are going to be tasked to come up with a few "keywords" relevant to your website and your niche.

Each Post You Create Will Be Targeting a Keyword...

Moving forward, you are going to be building content on your website. Each page of content that you create will target a brand new keyword (and we will be showing you how).

This means that every page/post will have the opportunity to rank under that given keyword in Google and lead to you getting traffic.

100 posts = 100 target keywords = 100+ potential Google rankings.

This can and will lead to mass amounts of traffic and those that follow along with this training are going to see their traffic continue to go up with every "keyword targeted" page or post that they create on their website.

Remember, Google and other search engines exist because of CONTENT and if you can deliver quality content (that targets low competition keywords), you will be able to get great rankings!

I have created a video walk-through of this lesson called "Keyword Mastery - Keywords are the Foundation of Your Content" and I suggest you watch on keyword mastery. It is going to increase your comfort level with keywords by 100 fold!


Task 1: Perform 5 different searches using Jaaxy

Your next task is going to be performing 5 searches relevant to your niche using the Jaaxy Keyword Tool.

To access Jaaxy, you are going to simply click the "Research" tab within the top menu, as shown below.

This will open up the entire Jaaxy platform, which is a highly sophisticated research platform that you have access to here at Wealthy Affiliate.

To access the keyword research platform, you will do so through the "Keywords" tab once inside Jaaxy (as shown below).

My suggestion with your initial searches is to start broad with a few of your searches (ie. two or three word searches). For example if your niche was "calorie based diets", you might want to start with the search terms:

  • calorie counting
  • calorie diets
  • how to count calories
  • etc

Here is an example search that I did using the "calorie counting" as the search phrase.

As you can see there are several columns of "keyword data". These are all very important when it comes to choosing keywords that are going to be useful to you.

  • Keyword. This is the search phrase that the data to the right of it is representing.
  • Avg. This is the overall monthly traffic this search term gets, globally.
  • Traffic. This is the estimated amount of traffic you will get if you rank on the first page of Google under this term.
  • QSR. Known as Quoted Search Results, this is the exact number of results in Google that you are competing with under this search phrase. In other words, this is how much competition you have.
  • KQI (Keyword Quality Indicator). This is a quick indicator on the keyword viability and quality based on all of the combined metrics.

If you do a search and you don't see the full data, you simply need to click the "Get QSR" link and it will fetch the data for you. You will see that if that particular keyword has never been searched before.

**Note: If you are a Premium Plus+ member, you have access to Jaaxy Enterprise which provides INSTANT QSR results.

Next, I want to discuss how to "choose" appropriate keywords for your content. This is critical in terms of getting ranked in Google and being the most efficient with your time. Don't worry though, it isn't all that complex. :)

The Rules of a Quality Keyword

There are a few rules that you need to follow

Rule #1: More than 30 monthly searches. You want your far left "Avg" column to ideally be greater than 30. Sometimes it is OK to go with a search volume less than this, but over 30 searches per month is ideal.

Rule #2: Less than 100 QSR (Competition). You want to keep your competition below 100 pages in Google, the lower the better though obviously. You will likely come across many terms with less than 100 QSR when doing your research, and that is even better!

As you progress with your website, under 200 is perfectly fine as you will be gaining more authority and better ranks in search engines.

Rule #3: Keyword must make sense. This is critically important. If the keyword doesn't make grammatical sense, don't use it. Do another search on the keyword that makes sense as that will likely give you different data and that is the data you want to measure.

An example of this is "best tips lose belly fat" which doesn't make grammatical sense (it is missing the "to"). I would do another search on this but this time "best tips to lose belly fat".

Do this exact process within your niche to come up with 5 Keywords. If you have any questions about the keyword research proces, please leave them in the comments below. :)

As a free starter member you have a website. Paid premium members can buy .com websites and use their websites as they want.

A website is owned by WA but they let you use it as you do the training.

A .com domain name is one you can buy for $14.99 a year. You won it and are free to use it as fits your plans. Yes you most certainly can use it for appointments and customer feedback.

As a free starter member you have a free 7 day look at the Paid Premium features so you know what you get if you choose to become a Premium members.

Once you go Premium you cannot return back to Free Starter Membership.

or use google to refine the searches...if you use [topic of question]
you will get all the results related to your question on this site but it will become more difficult but not impossible as others achieve success

Hi Kyle
Just wanted to say Hi and if you would be kind enough to look at the following and pass comment. My Niche is to do with Diabetes. My text for my blog is below, would this work.

<!-- wp:paragraph -->
<p>We are born, our parents bring us up the best way they can. They teach us right from wrong. We go to school, college and then get a job (just over broke). We are doing just fine when all of a sudden you look up and there she is, the women of your dreams.</p>
<!-- /wp:paragraph -->

<!-- wp:paragraph -->
<p>You get married and start your own family, you are now working twice as hard because you love your family and you will do everything to keep them safe.</p>
<!-- /wp:paragraph -->

<!-- wp:paragraph -->
<p>Then one day your dear wife says "Honey we are going to Jonny's Birthday party across the road, can you please wear that pair of trousers that I brought you for Christmas", "I spent a lot of money on them".</p>
<!-- /wp:paragraph -->

<!-- wp:paragraph -->
<p>So you go to get ready and you slip into those nice trousers, they do feel good, then suddenly out of the blue. !Darn what happened! and you look down and all you can see is this Big Belly, you cannot see the floor, worst of all the trousers, do not fit. You are now frantic, you call your wife, she stands there looking at you, then she walks up to you, cuddles you, gives you a kiss and says "I will just have to get used to that" A few years pass. You are now in your 40's. you go to see the doctors for a check up, to be told. "I sorry to inform you bit you have "Diabetes". Now thats a killer right there. You have to do something here.</p>
<!-- /wp:paragraph -->

<!-- wp:paragraph -->
<p>You join a gym, you start taking slimming pills along with all the other stuff your doctor gave you, but nothing works Until now. Go here and take a look.</p>
