Word of mouth has been working for me in the past. But, I relocate to a new area and did not know many people at my new location. So, I started to build a website with some easy software and began to learn as I go. Google keywords was a great tool and very helpful.

I agree, when I first began I started In a niche with tons of competition. As you can imagine, I didn't get anywhere.

Like I said above, I agree,but Putting the keyword in "quotes" is not an accurate way to decide to either pursue the keyword or not.

We use different tools in our keyword research for different reasons. However, generally, we use phrase match. We use these tools to find initial keywords: Google's Keyword Tool, Keyword Optimizer Pro, Keyword Ninja. Then, we use Market Samurai and hrefs.com to analyze keywords. Lately, we've been experimenting with SECockpit. Really like this tool, thus far. Just wish the monthly price tag were less.

You really can't use only Google Keyword Tool if you want to do proper keyword research. We spend a good amount of time of keyword research. It's that important.

Using Google’s Free Keyword Tool

As the saying goes “information is power”, but that power is useless if you don’t know what to do with it. Such is the case with the Google keyword tool, that provides you with a decent way to help optimise and target traffic from the search engine at your site.

Is it the answer we have all been looking for to our SEO woes? Definitely not, but it is part of the jigsaw for sure. So now you have a tool that effectively provides you with information on traffic for terms, suggestions for alternate terms and ideas, what do you do with it?

Webmaster Tools

If you set up webmaster tools you may already have a good idea of how Google robots actually view the content on your site and the relevance of certain terms. With luck these will be the keyphrases you are actually aiming to target already. You can use these terms though to help divine a path to more traffic.

If you haven’t then it’s not the end of the world, you can specify a URL in the keyword tool from which to analyse content and generate a list of associated keywords and phrases.

Testing Phrases

Out of these terms, do a search. You will see that different combinations of the same 2, 3 and 4 word key phrases can garner very different levels of traffic. To this end you will want to aim towards those keyword combinations that will generate higher levels of traffic.

Phrase Competition

So you have picked a series of keywords, but what’s the competition like on them? You can rest assured that those phrases that garner most hits are the most competitive in the field and therefore it makes more sense to target phrases that draw slightly less traffic. That way you compete less, achieve a better ranking in the search results and draw more traffic, and with a well designed site, end up converting them. Bingo! Once you dominate these terms you can more readily head on upwards to the even headier heights of larger volume keywords and phrases.

Implementing Good Research

Knowing then how to implement the keyphrases properly is the holy grail. Pasting the terms left, right and centre isn’t quite the key, but ensuring combination thereof are contained within the title, meta data, page content (titles, paragraphs), image alt and link title attributes, then you are heading in the right direction.

Of course, sometimes shifting the value of your site from page rank ZERO to PR4 or PR5 isn’t enough. Being on the front page of Google for terms less searched isn’t always optimal. Getting 10% conversion rate on 300 visits a month isn’t the same as 10% on 3000 or even 5%. And when you go to implement your terms, ensure they look linguistically correct and read well. Links that stand out in the search results are more likely to be clicked.

Elsewhere …

Last but not least, optimise more than just your site. Get the terms including in your business name in the Google business directory and where possible ensure links include them. The new terms need to infuse every aspect of your site from the content, to the sites you link to and the site that link back to you.

It might seem like an up-hill struggle to achieve but getting things right will mean that each of the elements of the jigsaw fall into place, even if slowly, but surely.

I think that Google insight Tools is also good to get the good idea of the keywords.

Being able to identify profitable keywords and niche markets that people are searching on the net will translate into more site exposure and ultimately more sales. And when it comes to free keyword tools, I think the Google Adwords keyword tool provides the best results.

Just as "nigel11" said, do not rely on any one tool for doing accurate research! Use other tools like keyword discovery and word tracker etc to make the KW research much more accurate.

Market samurai is really a good keyword tool. It also helps to find back links of your competitors. Many professionals use this tool.

I noticed that the Google Keyword Tool has a box to type in a website address. I tried this a few times, but only got one or two keywords for the website. Has Google changed something here? What is the real purpose of the website address box?
Thanks,
Jim

No one keyword tool is perfect. you can just get basic ideas about keyword. I would suggest to use exact or phrase keywords. As broad keyword many times misguide us. For me 3 phrase keyword work better for me than 2 phrase. Broad ranking can give visits but also increases bounce rate.

With SEO one of the things that you want to know about is, the competition you have.
you can get an idea about the competition by looking at the amount of sponsored ads in the search engine,
and the search volume.

Hi

I hate to be the voice of dissent, but . . .

Any free tool is limited. And Google's keyword tool is intended for advertisers, not publishers. There is a difference. With Google clamping down on so many things lately, it's very unlikely that they will be giving you keys to the Kingdom any time soon - especially without sharing your personal information so they can sell it. :hypo: Yikes! Did I say that? :twisted:

The premise is good though. Research your keywords. Find low competition keywords and build lots of oirginal, high-quality, content that visitors love. It's the source I'm doubtful of, especially when it's free.

There's never any such thing as free. You just may not be aware of the price. :wink:
