Finding proper keywords is vital part of the successful online business. That’s why many people are asking, “How to find keywords for my website?”
I am going to explain the simple and effective process what I use myself in order to find powerful keywords to get ranked.
You can use the same process in your keyword research or you can just take some ideas from my process and apply them in your own work.
First of all, I log in to my account. If you don’t have your own account, you can create it for free.
Once I have logged in I can go straight to the keyword tool.
Wealthy Affiliate provides a lot of useful tools including the keyword tool.
Their keyword tool shows the accurate traffic, competition and some other things related to the keywords. But I’m mostly interested in the traffic and the competition because they are two the most important factors in choosing the right keyword.
I click the keyword tool on the left menu and start searching.
Step 3 – Write the Possible Keywords
Then I usually have in mind what kind of subject you are going to write about. You can also use many kinds of techniques to get some inspiration for writing.
Write your possible keyword and BANG!
The keyword tool shows you if the keyword is good or not.
If the traffic is less than 50 searches per month, I recommend searching for the other keywords because most of the time you can find the better ones. If the traffic is too little you will hardly get any new visitors to your website.
I recommend you to find the keywords where the traffic is more than 50. But sometimes 30 or even 20 can be okay if the competition is very low.
Let’s take for example the keyword of this post. I planned to write something about the process how do I find keywords and teach you to do the same.
I found the keyword “How Do I Find Keywords for My Website”. That sounds logical so then I started to analyze the competition and the traffic.
You can see in the picture that the keyword gets only 32 searches per month so I wasn’t very interested before I saw the competition.
Then I checked the competition and it showed the following:
When the traffic was 32 and the competition only 15 I decided to choose How Do I Find Keywords for My Website as a keyword of my post. It didn’t take a lot of time to find this one.
Then I decided to make the video of my keyword research and I found out the better keyword with 56 monthly searches and the competition only 10.
See the video below where I explain my keyword research and how I ended up changing the keyword of this post.
Here are 3 main principles to find the best keyword:
1.The keyword must make sense (=grammatically correct)
2.The competition must be less than 50. (Usually, I still prefer the keywords with the competition less than 30.)
3.The traffic must be more than 50 but sometimes any traffic is okay. (Don’t choose the keywords with the traffic less than 10.)
Then after choosing my keyword I use it in the title and in the first paragraph of my article. Then I write the rest of the text naturally. Usually, I happen to use the keyword in the text afterwards when I just write naturally but I don’t concentrate on it too much.
Placing your keyword in the title and in the first paragraph is enough.
The most important thing is not to put a lot of keywords in your text but to provide the best experience for the reader.
Remember that you are providing content for the real people who are searching something from the Internet. You are not writing for the bot, you are writing for the human.
Finding great keywords will become your second nature as you keep providing quality content and building your online business. In the beginning, it may take some time but when you get used to it, the process becomes faster and faster.
I hope this short tutorial helps you to find the best keywords for your website. Feel free to ask questions and leave comments below!
Which keyword tools do you use? Jaaxy, Wealthy Affiliate’s keyword tool or something else?
(Sometimes I use also keyword tool Jaaxy but today explained the process how I find keywords using Wealthy Affiliate’s keyword tool. One of the greatest benefits of Wealthy Affiliate’s keyword tool is that it’s included in the premium membership. In the other words, it’s free for the premium members.)
Many people ask the questions like, “What are keywords?” “What do keywords mean?” And so on.
Today I’m going to explain you briefly what are those “strange keywords”. Probably after reading this text, you will be more familiar with keywords.
The keyword can mean many things in the different contexts (programming and other) but let’s concentrate on the keyword’s meaning in search engines.
“The keyword is a word or a sentence used by the search engine in its search for relevant Web pages.”
Let me give you some examples. The headline of this text is “What Does Keyword Mean?” The headline itself is a keyword. I made a little bit research and saw that people are looking for that keyword (“What Does Keyword Mean”) from Google.
So, when you write something to Google you are writing “a keyword”. If someone wants to learn how to make money online and writes in Google “How to make money online”, that is his “keyword”. Simple?
As I mentioned, my headline “What Does Keyword Mean?” is a keyword. People are looking for that in Google. My other articles in my website are for example
People are looking these subjects in Google.
For example, many people have searched for “Benefits of having a WordPress website.” I tell you 7 benefits in the article, so I added the seven in front of the keyword. It makes the headline also more captivating and appealing.
People are also wondering what is SEO and why they need it. They are thinking what is key to success and what are the benefits of passive income.
Keywords are the words and sentences that people search from Google and other search engines. People are interested in those things because they are looking for them.
The headline gets ranked in Google but also all the other stuff on the website. All the text in every post and page. All the images. Literally almost everything.
If you write for example a blog post of 700 words, (which is quite a normal for a blog post) it contains already a big bunch of keywords. Also, every image you add on your website can be ranked in search engines. There are techniques how you can get your images ranked better in Google but today we concentrate on the text.
Even though your every single article and page contains already a lot of keywords it’s still important to make “keyword research” to get your page ranked better. It will lead to more traffic on your website and people will find your website more easily.
Even if you don’t have any former skills on keywords, don’t worry! If you have experience from keywords, great!
Finding great and relevant keywords can take too much time if you don’t have proper tools for doing that. It may take time from other more important things.
That’s why there are great tools which make your keyword research way easier and faster.
I can fully recommend Jaaxy. It is tool fully made for the purpose to find great keywords, make keyword research easier, faster and cheaper.
