Step-By-Step Keyword Research Guide
This is a step-by-step keyword research guide. I am going to show you the best keyword tool, a great method for incorporating the keywords into your articles, and I'm going to make sure you don't put all of your eggs into one basket.
What I mean by that is, I don't want you to let the fate of your article pend on one keyword. You should target between three and six keywords that are all very closely related. This way, you're likely to benefit from traffic from more than one source for each article.
The first place to start is the Google keyword tool. This is a free tool by Google that gives you everything you need to figure out which keywords you want to target and those you want to avoid.
Don't think that because this is a free keyword research tool it is inferior. The reason Google has provided this tool is because it benefits them to have well informed marketers. We are, after all, responsible for pretty much every bit of content on the web, without which Google would not exist.
There are some different paid keyword tools and these can be very helpful but I really recommend starting with the free one. I see people spending money left and right for different things and these tools are great but wait to buy them until you're more comfortable with what they are and how to use them.
