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".

To be honest... I'm amazingly, 100%, totally, lost in all this. I feel like I'm in some kind of fog what with all the info. being poured out in front of you. There are skills here, that are different from skills I'm familiar with. I think what's being said, in a nutshell, is that we will basically 'advertise' for a product and when said product is purchased from them, then we would get a percentage of the profit. I hope I'm correct and also making sense.

Yup that's right; and I have suggested this to others. Try Amazon Associates; sign up for them. Just search for Amazon Associates in Google. Then sign up for them. And if you have problems with the tax forms; try Kyle, Carson, Carson2, and Site Support. Site Support is in Websites at the bottom; and to contact Kyle and others; just put their names into the search engine here on WA separately. Then click on the name; for instance; Kyle. Hope this helps?

I think you're getting it. I know I feel as confused as you say you do a lot of the time. I think I'm going to have to learn to take it one step at a time, learn what is on that step, and then move on. That's hard for me because I keep running into things where I feel like I need to know it all at once!

I agree with Wynette, it is a lot of information, however I believe if I'm willing to climb a mountain then it will be 1 step at a time! We can do this!

I haven't signed up to a premium membership but I just would like to know what the terms and conditions are if I cancel my membership ( let's say after I join for 3 months)? Can I cancel anytime I want? I have done 10 video lessons and I have a good faith of the services / products provided by WA, but I just would like to know some details about membership cancellation. It seems that I can't find any information or discussion about the cancellation.

Quite easy Clementapp. You can terminate your membership at anytime. Just go through your Dashboard, Account Setting, Membership and then stop Billing and Cancel Membership. However, better to always think of suceeding rather than anticipating the otherwise. With the current trend in Technology and World Wide Web, the easy way to secure the source of income tomorrow is building an Online Business. It might take sometime before it start yielding big but it certainly will. Goodluck

Hi!, as a senior (50+) I want to focus on this market. I think it is relatively underserved... lots of senior living, etc. I am thinking of a lifestyle site/blog/products to address the under-recognized reality of the hardships senior face: age/job discrimination, loneliness, discrimination, etc. Does anyone think this is a good market, idea(s), and any input will be very helpful.

I think this is a good niche. The more targeted you get the better, as it will lead to a more targeted audience. I think there's a lot to be talked and wrote about here. If you have good knowledge in these areas, I'd say go for it!

I think this is an awesome idea. Not only will you have people in your target market seeking the info you're considering, but their caretakers will be doing so as well. I haven't done any searches in this niche myself but it sounds like a pretty solid one. I'll let you know if I come up with any other thoughts.

Looking forward to seeing your progress!

I am an English language teacher and I think you are doing a fine job of communicating in English.
First, go through the training and get your website set up and indexed.

Creat 10 or more posts/articles.

Then go to an affiliate program outside WA and use their software to insert links.

When a visitor clicks your redirecting link and then buys something, you earn a commission.
