Finding good keywords is basically a two step process. First you find keywords with many searches using (Google Keyword Tool). You then have to check the competing sites (Google search) to see if you even stand a chance to rank for those keywords.
For example, I find a keyword (best Android video games) has over 90000 monthly searches and then I check the competing sites searching on google like "best Android video games". ( Use " " for exact match result)

Then make I sure that there is no more then 100000 competing pages for this phrase. Because if you want to rank quickly then you should target low competitive keyword with more monthly searches.

I think this will help newbie to find profitable keyword to increase their blog traffic.
How do you research keyword? And what technique you follow while researching best keyword?

Would love to hear from you.

    I agree that's a start to the keyword research involved. Really though, the number of competing pages is not the challenge. It is most important to check the page 1 results and see what the top websites on the FRONT page have for domain authority, page authority, back links, and domain age. That is the ONLY page that matters in your ability to rank.

    Is your name Justin Young? Because the first paragraph is something he posted verbatim to one of his blog comments.

    What do I think? You and/or Justin concentrate on exact match search when you should not. It's likely that real users don't use it that often, and neither should you. The number of pages may or may not tell you anything. If your keyword is very generic, there's going to be a ton of pages. Most of them are not very good matches.
    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    That keyword research strategy was very popular over 5 years ago. It was a flawed technique then, and definitely a flawed technique now.
