“How to find keywords for the website?”… I have seen, this is one of the most common questions among the bloggers’ community throughout the online world.
If you are a beginner, I appreciate you, because you knocked on the right door.
Perfect keywords are the seeds of your website, and as a beginner, it is very common to have no/less idea about keyword research. I am glad to help you out.
In reality, I have noticed not only the beginners but also many intermediates are suffering from the same problem.
What is the reason behind this?
Most people actually tend to search for keywords for their blogs in the wrong way.
I am not saying you are a bad writer or bad composer, but unless you select keywords in a proper way, it is very difficult to survive it the virtual world.
To get success in the online world, it is important to understand the relationship between keyword and SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and choosing the ideal keywords for your website.
Give me 5 minutes… You’ll realize the beauty of keywords
I have seen, good writers, travelers, sports-lover or health conscious people often wish to send message to the world, and at the same time wish to make some money online via their messages. Hence, on a fine day, they enter the world of blogging somehow (Maybe through a platform or without a platform). Then they start posting blogs on their website.
Everything is fine up to here.
But the problem arises in the next step. Due to the involvement of wrong keywords, many websites often suffer from low traffic, because search engines deny ranking those websites. You should know, websites get ranked via the traffics as well as by search engine optimization (SEO). If either of these two stops working, you are in an absolutely dark channel.
I know, fighting with an unranked website is really frustrating. And if you are a sufferer, your frustration forces you to open Google search bar, and type something like, “How to find keywords for the website?”
Anyway, I am glad to know you have typed the right words and ultimately reach to the right place.
Yes, keywords are the beautiful things; if you select keywords in a proper way, search engines start to recognize your website very quickly, and finally fall in love with your website.
Let’s see how…
Remember the rule of 3 pillars and generate the best keywords
If you remember the rule of 3 pillars, you are half-way done.
Let’s have a quick look over the rule of 3 pillars to find keywords for your website:
- Low competition keywords (at least below 150)
- High Keyword search traffic (must be at least 60)
- Keywords must carry a sense
Things will be crystal clear to you if I explain each in brief.
1. Low Competition Keywords
The meaning is very simple. A low competition keyword competes with the least number of articles. In a more clear version, search engines contain a lower number of articles with the same keyword.
This is the most important criteria to choose a keyword. So, your primary focus should be to select the lowest competition keyword.
If there will be too many articles on the internet with the same keyword, you can never rank in the search engine. Because other people are already sitting on the top of the search result, and as a newbie, it is very difficult to replace them.
No Rank in Search Engine = No Traffic = No Earning = Frustration
I find one keyword research tool which can produce the result of keyword competition very efficiently. That is Jaaxy. I always use this tool, because I found this is much efficient than many others.
If you use Jaaxy, you see the term QSR (Quote Search Result), which indicates the value of keyword competition.
Oh sorry! I forgot to tell you what should be the ideal QSR value for better ranking.
The ideal QSR value is below 200, but I preferably select keywords having competition below 100 to rank well. Lower the value of QSR, higher the chance to rank in the search engine.
2. Keyword search traffic must be at least 50
Without traffic a keyword is useless. If your selected keyword is not popular in the search engine (people never search with the term), you’ll never get traffic in your blog.
Many people love to create a headline which is rhythmic, poetic and nice looking. This type of headings are the great choices for books or a story but for blogs, you have to focus on search engine popularity. If you check in a good keyword research tool, you’ll see poetic terms normally do not drive traffic at all.
So you need to be realistic to select a keyword.
Another thing you need to note: Average search/month vs keyword competition.
Normally, uncommon keywords are low competition keywords (QSR value is even ‘0’ sometimes), that means there is nothing on the internet with this keyword. But don’t be delighted to see a low competition keyword. Besides, you must check the traffic (average search/month) also. Most of the time you’ll find there is no traffic at all.
No Traffic = No earning = Frustration
So, you can not choose a keyword for your website, which represents low competition and very low traffic. An ideal keyword must have at least 50 searches per month.
In Jaaxy, traffic per month is represented by the term ‘Avg’.
3. Keywords must carry a sense
If you take a look at the heading of this article, you can see I have chosen a keyword which grammatically makes a sense.
The title of the article is “How to Find Keywords for the Website“, which is also the keyword of this article.
How would it be, if I had chosen something like, “How Find Keywords Website“? Would you like it? Does it grammatically make sense?
I know the answer, it is ‘No’.
You are creating contents for your audiences. If they are not impressed with your very first line (the title) of your article, they’ll just leave your website, because of the awkward feelings. You’ll be losing traffic as well as ranking.
Notably, bots within Search Engines (SE) also don’t like a keyword/sentence which is grammatically incorrect.
Meaningless keyword = Decrease Traffic + Hate from SE = No ranking = No earning = Frustration
So, you always need to select a keyword which makes sense.
The keyword research tools
You’ll get many keyword research tools on the internet. Few don’t produce faithful results and few are pretty perfect. You must select the right one. Without perfect result, you’ll be selecting the wrong keywords, and your website will continue troubling.
I personally use Jaaxy as my keyword research tool, which is easy to use. I believe it generates very perfect result because I am continuously getting success by the results generated by Jaaxy.
Other than Jaaxy there are few more keyword research tools in the market, such as Soovle, Ahrefs, SECockpit, Google Keyword Planner, etc.
There are few online marketing training platforms who are offering Jaaxy for free of cost along with many other facilities. If you are interested you can check out the following link.
