We’re almost to the end of our training for level 1! Let’s make the most of it!
- What is a Keyword?
- How to find the right keyword?
- Best practices for keyword
To put in simply, a keyword is what describes your post or content accurately. It’s also a word/s that you want Google to rank you with when people search those word/s.
Take a look at this here – I just made a quick search in Google about improving your writing.
What I type in Google to search for what I was looking for is a ‘keyword’. When I search that keyword – it’ll provide me tons and tons of different results that is related to what I was looking for.
These are all the results in the 1st page of Google. If I am to do more research into this, I’m much more likely to click on this page than any other pages.
You probably already understood SEO in the previous lesson, but this is why ranking is so important! You can drive traffic and revenue into your business when you have your page ranked!
Now you understand keywords, you start working on implementing good keywords into your own content.
Before you start researching on keywords, think of these things:
- What kind of searches do I want people to find me from?
- For those searches, what words are they most likely to use?
- What are some phrases or questions that could arise from those searches?
It’s important to think through these questions before you start doing research. Remember the goal is to drive traffic, but also RELEVANT traffic.
You don’t want someone that’s looking to buy hamburgers end up in a blanket shop! That won’t serve the purpose and it will harm you long term with the SEOs. Search engines are getting smarter everyday, so genuine, authentic and relevant content will provide stable flow of traffic.
A lot times I see irrelevant content or keywords used. This is something that you absolutely want to avoid!
Now, we will get into helping you with searching some keywords for your niche website!
From here on, every post or content you make in your website has to focus on a keyword! We will get to how you can do that below from a keyword tool Jaaxy.
Jaaxy is actually a super useful tool that provides YOU all the different keywords that are being used so that you can see which keyword suits best for you!
This is a tool that’ll you will already have built in when you are registered for my recommended platform to help you build your website.
Go sign up right now for free access, if you haven’t so you can get started with searching keywords!
Once you have that ready, we will work on having you do some search into the Jaaxy keyword tool built in. This tells you which keyword are being searched the most, how many other posts already have this keyword and more importantly, if this is a viable keyword that you can use!
Let’s have you try it so you can better understand it. Go over where it says ‘research’ in the upper tab:
Once you go there, it’ll take you to a research tool. Here’s an example when I searched on ‘how to improve your writing’.
See how it not only provides what you searched for, but also gives you so many other ideas?
You want to have options. You see, especially as you’re just starting out, you don’t want to use keywords that are highly competitive. The keyword that I used has a high traffic and searches, but it also has too much competition.
You see how the QSR is too high? It’s better to add a few phrases and use ‘how to improve your writing skills and grammar’ than the previously used keyword.
Before we go further, let me quickly also explain what all the terms in the search means: Keyword: The phrase that users type into to find what they are looking for. Average: The average number of searches that keyword receives per month. Traffic: Visits to your website if you achieve first page rankings in search engines QSR: This stands for 'Quoted Search Results' meaning the number of competing websites ranked in Google for this exact keyword. KQI: This stands for 'Keyword Quality Indicator' - so the color green is great, the color yellow is Okay and the color red is poor. SEO: A score given to you based on traffic and competition, the higher the score, the more likely you will rank for this keyword on the first page. It's ranked from 1-100 and the higher your number, the better. Domains: Availability of domains that are related to your keyword.
So even though it might be tempting to put in a lot of keywords that have higher ‘averages’, if you’re starting out, your potential traffic will be eaten by your competition. It’s super important that you stick with finding lower QSR and higher SEOs.
Try out a few keywords yourself related to your niche. If you need a hand or have questions, leave a comment or reach out to my in my profile.
Hopefully you were able to find a few keyword and get the hang of it in the keyword tool. Don’t worry, you’ll get the little nuances of the strategies with practice and more importantly as you go through future lessons.
I do want to point out a few tips and tricks though so that you really get the most out it from the beginning.
You’ll notice as you try out different keywords that sometimes you’ll find keywords that are ‘in the green’ and ranked very high, but they don’t make sense. Avoid these keywords!
Try to find other good keywords that makes grammatical sense. The keywords that don’t make sense will make it very awkward for readers and it’s likely that it’ll lead to a great amount of exits from your website.
Remember, good content and logical content is always the key!
As you get more experienced and once you have a larger content in your website, you can try to beat the competition. But as someone that is just starting out, you want to make sure you compete with as less people as possible.
Make sure you only select QSRs that are below 100 for keywords. Anything above that, forget it for now. Just look for another keyword.
This is another important one. Remember traffic is key for your website?
Well, in order to get traffic, you need to find keywords that people are searching for. If no one is searching your keyword, it doesn’t matter how good of a content you have, no one will come read it!
Having at least 30 searches will allow you to make sure you get a certain flow of traffic for that particular keyword.
Just as how you need to find averages above 30, you also don’t want averages that are over a 1000. It’s better to have averages that are a little lower so you target a smaller niche – and more importantly quality niche.
Okay, now you are clear with keywords and how to find them, I want you to find 5 keywords right now. Think about what kind of content you want to have for your website and research them accordingly.
Remember to not skip this step – it’s an important tool to make sure you take action towards your online journey.
