Hi everyone,

I am sometimes confused when making a keyword research on the Jaaxy keyword research tool.

I know that in the training it is specified that we have a g

Jaaxy is an indicator, but that's all it is. It's also a lag indicator, based on past results, which aren't necessarily current. It's always good to have a high ratio between traffic and qsr, but you should always do Bing and Google searches on the keyword as well to get more information. And bear in mind that a well written article can get traffic much later, rather than immediately.

Thanks very much for your input Phil.

John 😀

You're welcome, John.

Hi - the most important thing to do, is not to rely on the figures in Jaaxy. Go direct to Google and look at all the posts that are on page 1.

Check if they are all well established sites, that are years old with hundreds of posts. They will be difficult to beat.

Read the actual posts and decide if you can write something better, more in-depth, more up to date.

That's a good idea Diane, thanks for sharing. - John 😀

Thank you for sharing. I for one, still get a bit confused about the stats, and numbers. There will always be different ways that people use keywords to increase their position.

Thank you for the info.

I agree with you Carla because I have some articles that figure on the first or second position on Google's first page searches which in theory should not by all means - Cheers - John 🤔

Here's what I have recently found out about SEO score. We'll see if someone has more comments on it.

When the SEO score is in the 80's or below - this means that the keyword (phrase) is well established by high ranking sites and that it is very difficult to get ranked on first page of the search results. If SEO is above 94 the rankings for this keyword phrase are being established and you can rank for it even on first page..

Very interesting George, thanks for sharing. I will try that as well. - John🙂

Look for searches (avg.) above 30 and competition (qsr. ) lower than 100, the lower the qsr the better. Starter sites SEO greater than 95.

For your choice of keywords, always do an incognito search on Google before settling on a keyword, to see who appears on Google Page 1

Or you may do in Jaaxy tool search analysis

Your found target keywords go in the title of your post and again in first or second paragraph then write freely. Some include them towards a conclusion if it conveys a message. I'd also make sure they are grammatically correct.

Very good, thanks very much Abie 🙂

No worries, and you're very welcome!

Hi WA friends,

I am wondering if it makes any difference if we upload an image from our computer into a content on our WordPress website, or if it is okay to copy and pa

Would agree with Rudy. It is much easier to upload images to the media library first and adding the alt description there then adding media to your post.. .

You may appreciate this video.

Better to upload your images to your WordPress media library, than to copy/paste.

Rudy

Hey John,

Having read your responses to Abie, things are a little clearer now.

Always download the images off the free image sites, as opposed to copy and pasting them.

Everything within a WordPress blog post should be optimized around a specific keyword, including images.

Better on-page optimization gives you a better chance of ranking for your chosen keyword and others closely related to it.

So, whenever you download an image to your computer you should actually save it as your keyword

Then when you upload the image to your WordPress blog post, it is uploaded with the filename that is the focus keyword of your article.

As an example:

Your blog post is targeted around the keyword, "how to change my oil filter'' and you're going to add 3 images to your article.

Once you've sourced or created your images you should then save them to your computer as:

How to change my oil filter 1
How to change my oil filter 2
How to change my oil filter 3

However, if you simply copy and paste you don't have the option to "optimize the file name".

Hope that makes sense?

Partha

Wow! Thanks Partha, that makes real sense to me and I understand very well now.

Best wishes,

John👍

The best practice is this. Download your images to your system. Name them with your relevant keywords e.g., wealthy-affiliate-review.

Then i use the following free tools to resize and compress my image without losing the qualities:

1. https://bulkresizephotos.com/en
2. https://batchcompress.com/en

The https://bulkresizephotos.com/en will resize and reduce and compress the image first, then the https://batchcompress.com/en will further reduces the images such that the plugin image resize will result in doing nothing on your platform.

You can then upload your image to your backend.

This is how i treat my images. The naming convection will aid your SEO optimization, indexing and traffic fast.

Regards

John

Thanks very much for your response John, it confirms what @ParthaB has explained to me (above). Can I ask you a question please? ...

When saving the image to my computer is it best to name it, for example: wealthy-affiliate-review or wealthy affiliate review without the dashes (if that is my focus keyphrase of course)?

John 🙂

Yes, always name your images as by default the file title will e shown as the name of image.

If you save a cooy of the original, and the best practices to do so, rename the copy to help identify the image to find easier, and the the image title comes up automatically, therefore saving you a step or two.

Rudy

You must always separate you image file name with "-". (note that "-" is different from "_". It is not under scores (_) but hyphen (-). For SEO optimization purpose. It will help your image to rank to boost your content ranking.

Note: Your image file names should also be in small cases all through.

Regards

John

Great, thanks John 🙂

Thanks Rudy.

John 🙂

Youre welcome!

Rudy

Hey John,

Using both the Classic and Block Editors in WordPress in different websites, I've never been able to simply copy and past an image that I created onto a post or page.

Your images need to be in the WordPress Media Library in order to be used on any WordPress page or post, so I'm confused with your question.

Thanks for your response Trish, but I can assure you that I can do it by right clicking the image ~~> copy image on my mouse and paste it within any WP post or page without having to upload it from my computer to the WP media library whether I use the Classic or Block Editor.

I am working on a Chromebook system, and not on a Microsoft or other system, that might make the difference.

John 🙂

Not really...uploading the image is the best way, no matter what device you use.

Rudy

Hey John, I'm not so sure that once you save that post and close it out and then go back to the edit mode that you would see your image(s) that were copied and pasted.

However, you are most likely also using a Chrome browser, which for me, is another reason to not trust that browser.

Thanks Rudy!

You're welcome, John!

You can always use Google Search Console and using Google Analytics with it gives a lot of additional information.
