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.

First Off, WHAT IS A KEYWORD?

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.

This 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 Success"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.com

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

There is a quick search feature available to you right within the Jaaxy menu. You simply click on the menu and it will pop up the submenu, with the search available right within it.

You can see I have entered "increase vertical jump" into the search (as shown below).

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

  • basketball drills
  • basketball skills
  • increase vertical jump
  • dribbling drills
  • etc

After performing the search, you will simply want to click the "magnifying glass" icon or press enter on your keyboard.

Here are how the search results look for the "increase vertical jump" search.

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)

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.

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".

I have a question. Let's say I have already decided my niche & one of my topics/webpage somehow don't have a product related to it on all the famous websites like Amazon, eBay, Flipkart etc ? What should I do in that case?

What if I have many topics to write on & I use an affiliate link related to the other topic(let's say mobile technology) on my website to my current topic(the one which doesn't have any products on the famous websites). Will that be OK?

I mean, in the end, most of us are just going to buy stuff from the well known & trusted websites.

And how many affiliate links on a single webpage is considered to be OK?
2?3?

I want to know that can I display different products from different sites on one 1 website.
for ex - from amazon one cc cream and from Walmart one lipstick can we do that. or by doing this we can go banned.

plz, suggest to me whether I go for different products from different sites or should stick to one site forex- like the only selling amazon products.

try not to think of your niche as a product - but what the product does - the end result.
so the lipstick - want to present yourself at your best - so more of a makeup - so what about makeupstyles in your 40's
this way you get to do how to's and promote products as solutions.
this way is a lot more subtle that trying to sell a product to anyone.
but it can cover many products on one website
good luck

Hi everyone! I've a question. Let's assume I have a website & someone buys a product through my affiliate link.
Now let's put aside the commission part.
What I want to know is what kind of information I'll get to know about the customer who is buying through my link?

*First of all, I would like to make this clear, I'm not talking about any personal information.*
The thing I'm talking about is for eg:- Which part of the world they belong to OR from where they are purchasing the product through my link.

The one thing that I know is "Business is all about catering your customers NEEDS & WANTS"

I'll try to explain by giving an example.
Let's assume I have like 10 affiliate links, out of which 7 links are accessed by people from a particular region, let's say, London & they end up buying a product.

So if I know from which region of the world, most of my affiliated products are bought, it would help me in future if I try to choose more specific products for my new affiliate links.

I hope my question makes some sense.

Thanks in advance for your reply & taking time out to read my question.

What information you get by the affiliate network differs but in most cases you won't get information other than how many clicks were there on your link and how many purchased from those clicks.

You can use tools like clickmagick to know where are the clicks coming from, fake clicks, and many other things.

Thanks for replying!
I just read few things on ClickMagick & honestly, I liked some of its features (& didn't understood the rest 😅). I didn't see its pricing, but I want to know is it really worth it to use such a tool?
Is there any better or maybe cheap alternative to it? Does Wealthy Affiliate provide such a tool?

Plus what do you mean by fake clicks? Do you mean bots? If yes, then how can we avoid the whole bot stuff? I have seen my websites & YouTube channels comment section which were spammed with full of bots messages.

I have just joined this community today & I'm still a starter member.
Infact you can think of me as a amateur in this whole online business stuff.

I'm going through the training & the comments section as well to know more about the community & all the different terms/tools associated with online business.

I know I'm getting too far ahead but still want to learn & know more about this stuff.

Is there anyone here who has tried this ClickMagick tool(or maybe another alternative) & could share their experience?

Thank you!

hey hi Vishal & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

Super question & all questions are good ones here....

Yes ... it's all possible .... it's just that it will take much more effort on your part for the rate of return and also likely take a lot, lot longer ...

Suggest you get rolling on the step by step training with Kyle over the next few days or so and then decide ... where there's a will, there's always a Way to Success! ....

here's the blue link to the training for you ... All the very best to you .. cheerio ... :)

Hi - it's possible, but it will be much more difficult. You will only have limited access to the training, and after your first 7 days, you won't be able to communicate with other members or ask questions if you get stuck.

Do be aware, that even with a premium membership you would be unlikely to see any income for at least 3 months, and more realistically it would be 6 months. This is not a get rich quick scheme, you are building a genuine online business for your future.

Should I reconsider my niche if Google ads keywords shows competition is very high? Should I pick a niche based off of low competition keywords rather than my passions? Using Jaxxy would it be better to go with a high traffic, high competition keyword with an OK KQI, and a SEO rank of 73, or rather pick a lower traffic, lower competition keyword that has a great KQI and SEO rank in the 90's?

I wouldn't base your niche off a keyword or off Google Ads. There will be thousands of keywords you can target for your niche to obtain free organic traffic from search results pages
