The Basics Of Keyword Research (After Google Panda)
Keyword Research; Did you do it?
The basis of starting a blog and creating a successful online business is doing thorough keyword research.
Wikipedia defines Keyword research as:
a practice used by search engine optimization professionals to find and research actual search terms people enter into the search engines when conducting a search. Search engine optimization professionals research keywords in order to achieve better rankings in their desired keywords
If you didn’t catch that, keyword research is basically figuring out exactly what people are searching for whenever they hit the search engines.
Now as you should know, Google is the #1 website in the world partly because they are the most basic search engine on the planet but not only that; Google has plenty of tools for users.
The main one SEO pros use is the Google Keyword Tool. This resource provided by Google is very powerful and shows what people are searching for online by a number of factors:
- Monthly searches (both local and global)
- Adwords competition (shows you if the advertisers are fighting over keywords; with dollars of course)
- and many more that can be used but tend to be irrelevant
For my video, I want to show you the basics of keyword research using the Google keyword tool. I’m also showing you how to build a successful authority blog.
