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 bring this outside resource here not as a criticism of" Site Content" but there may be better out there. I use Grammarly to help me with spelling and general writing stuff. The part I am using now is free there is an upgraded version I think for $29.month which I am considering.

Once you sign up as you are typing .in real-time, it will let you know. With misspellings, suggestions for better word usage, spacing that could be improved, All in real-time.

It's not perfect I would say around 85%-90% correct. Sometimes it missed misspellings but for the most part its great.

The reason I know that it's better is bc when I use Site Content for this purpose is that I will download my articles into SiteContent and push the button to check for errors.

It would show me any errors. I would correct them to publish over to WP. Grammarly would find 3-4x errors that were missed spelling, grammar, word usage, what have you

So check it out. Oh BTW I don't have any " dogs in this hunt" just passing on good info

Take care all

Is it ok to have 2 niches at once. E.G. can I have a niche about a topic that I'm passionate about, and also have a page or section that promotes wealthy affiliate or any other affiliate program?
I'm just curious as to how would this be done and has anyone ever double dipped on niches and had any success..

Quite frankly it is up to you. Tes, why not. If you create great content and follow the training you will succeed. A lot of the guys would tell you one at a time.

Thank you.
I appreciate you.

Your not alone. During the last session I immediately thought of two ideas. I would say get the ground work on one done first. That way you can learn from your mistakes before taking on the second one. If everything goes well you will be into your second one shortly.

@hgruvman. Thank you. I appreciate you. That makes sense. I always do what I think is right when it comes to the online business and always end up with zero results.
This time I'm going to listen to my peers. They say if you want different results you have to do things differently..

So thank you.

And I will focus on just one niche, and if successful, then I'll give 2 a try ..

Hi, I think I need some help here with the WordPress menu and those things.
I have tried over and over again to get it set like described herein
the session without any luck.
It looks more a battlefield than a WP site.
The Menu page has a bit different outlook than what you describe in the program, and that makes me a bit confused.
Is there any way for support to help me get it up and shine?

Thanks a lot for this program. I am confident that I will succeed more or less over time.

Hi there, newbie here! My question is for the website that is being built, what is the content that exists on here? Is it blogging or just strictly advertising the niche? What sets a high traffic website apart from one that is not getting any leads? Lastly, how is the website found by others (for example: if someone performs a Google search, what page of the results would your site be found on and do you need to pay to have it bumped up?).

Hi Tammy, Joe here. Welcome to WA! You follow the training outlined, build your website and start writing articles about your niche. What sets the high traffic sites apart from the lower ones is content. Google will index your site, meaning they will notice it, then as you write more and more articles, it will move up in ranking with publishing more genuine content. You cannot pay to move up in google ranking. If you use the right keywords when writing, those that people will use when searching google, then it will gain more popularity quicker. I have only been here about 5 months and have already had two of my articles make page 1, for a couple days anyway. Now average page 2 with all my articles. Follow the training step by step and you'll do fine:)

This was a great introduction. I think I'll stay on as a starter until I learn more and start making some money. It's great to know that premium is available for furthering my knowledge and education.
I just have one question. Is the only way to make money with affiliate marketing by building a website and directing traffic to that site? I've seen some other stuff with click funnels and embedding your link in a popular instagrammer's account, etc. Are those legitimate or scams?
