Hi warriors..!
I need help! how do i check the priority of a keyword. The keyword which could drive more traffic or the keyword from which people searches the most?
#keyword #select
  • Make sure they keyword is making money. Check to see if people are running ads for the keyword. You can google the keyword and if you see ads on the side then you know its a money keyword. It also should have low competition. Now it doesn't have to have low competition you can aim for high search volume keywords but make sure you have the funds to get it ranked.

    Google keyword tool is the best one for check search volume. When you are going to select the keyword keep in mind the following things. From backlinko .com (Brian Dean)

    When it comes to commercial intent, all of the millions of keywords out there can be placed into one of four categories:

    Buy Now Keywords
    These are keywords that people use minutes before making a purchase. People searching with Buy Now Keywords may literally have their credit card in their hand.
    Here are words that tend to be part of Buy Now Keywords:
    Buy
    Coupon
    Discount
    Deal
    Shipping

    Real life examples of Buy Now Keywords are “Bluehost discount”, “Buy candles online” and “Custom t-shirts free shipping”.
    As you might expect, these keywords convert like crazy. They may not get great search volume, but their sky-high conversion rate makes up for it.

    Product Keywords
    Product Keywords are searches that focus on a specific product category, brand name, or service. People searching for Product Keywords tend to be a bit earlier in the buying cycle than people using Buy Now Keywords.
    In other words, they convert well…but not quite as well as Buy Now Keywords.

    Product Keywords tend to include:
    Review
    Best
    Top 10
    Specific brand name (“Nike” or “Toshiba”)
    Specific product (“Macbook Pro” or “Samsung Galaxy”)
    Product category (“Wordpress hosting” or “tennis shoes”)
    Cheap
    Affordable
    Comparison
    Don’t be thrown off by terms like “cheap” and “affordable”. Believe it or not, keywords with the words “cheap” in them convert really well.
    For example, someone searching for “cheap laptops” has already decided that they want a laptop…they’re just looking for a product in their price range.


    Informational Keywords
    The vast majority of keywords online are Informational Keywords. As you might imagine, people looking for information don’t tend to convert especially well.
    That being said, you can’t ignore Informational Keywords because they make up such a huge chunk of the keywords in your niche.

    Information Keywords tend to include words like:
    How to
    Best way to
    Ways to
    I need to
    The best way to leverage Informational Keywords is to find keywords that have high search volume and low competition.
    Then, get as much of that traffic as you can on an email list. That way, you’ll be the site on their mind as they’re ready to buy something.


    Tire Kicker Keywords
    Tire Kicker Keywords are searches that are VERY unlikely to convert now…or in the near future.
    Here are a few examples words that tend to make up Tire Kicker Keywords:

    Free
    Torrent
    Download
    …for free
    A keyword like “watch The Simpsons online free” is a classic Tire Kicker Keyword. Good luck getting that person to buy anything (or even click on an ad).
    On the other hand, keywords like “Buy Simpsons TV episodes” (Buy Now Keyword), “Simpsons DVDs” (Product Keyword) or “How to watch Simpsons Episodes” (Informational Keyword) will convert relatively well.

    Doing a keyword is not difficult, But you have to find out, user friendly keywords like which keywords are more search for people. Just use the google adword tool and find out. There you can get all information about the particular keyword.

      Google keyword planner is an amazing tool to look at volume, but you also need to look at the search engine results for that keyword in Google (SERPS).

      For something like weight loss there is a huge search volume, right? But when you type it in Google it brings back 229,000,000 results.. and I bet the top 5 pages are all websites that are ranked strongly in Alexa.

      Meaning that you'll never rank for that keyword unless you have a giant budget to spend thousands a month.. and even then it would take a long time.

      Same thing with weight loss tips.. Good search volume, but you're not going to beat out all the authority sites that are already ranked for that keyword. And bidding through Adwords is going to be expensive.

      That's not to say you can't drive traffic to weight loss tips through other means like FB Ads and other forms of PPC, but SEO isn't going to work.

      What you can do if your goal is SEO is like someone earlier mentioned.. find a sub-sub-niche of weight loss tips that gets traffic, and focus around that.

      It takes time ans research, but it will be much more effective for you if you're plan is to build out a niche site with SEO.

    When looking for keywords, I would suggest using a lot of longer keywords as these are often easier to rank for. But also look at search volume as well because if the keywords don't have high volume (>100) then they wont bring in too much revenue.

    First priority is to go for all the low competition long tail keywords and make sure you fully optimise your page for the long tail phrase.

    There are plenty of keyword finding tool available which helps to find the best keywords for your website. Google Adwords is one of the best tool, there are few more you can Google it to find those.

    Hopefully this helps.

    Hi jessikaload,
    Your sharing is very helpful for many guys here. Google Keyword Tool is the best tool for keyword research and to select the golden keyword I usually use Long Tail Pro to calculate the difficulty of the keyword. I think the coward with KC <=30 is easy to rank top
