Keyword ResearchHow To Keyword: Find the Right Keywords

Finding Keywords is a very common question from my clients.  There really is an easy method if you are willing to learn it – Google Adwords Keyword Tool

Process to find Search Words

  1. Go to the tool and enter in your main topic for the post.
  2. See if that keyword has low competition and has high local search volume.
  3. If it does that is a good keyword – if not look at the related keywords in the provided list and find one that meets the criteria.
  4. Also choose 2-3 related keywords to use as supporting keywords in your post.
  5. The Main keyword goes at the front of the Title, in the H2 tag (first sentance) and in the first sentance of the post bolded.  It is also good to end with that keyword.
  6. The supporting Keywords are used in the Sub Headers for the post as well as body text.
