How to do Keyword research and why keyword research is important?
Keywords are the phrase or query which a user uses to search. In the answer to their query search engine show results for their keywords. Each website shown in the result is ranked for that keyword. So, working on the right keywords is more important. You should keep this thing in mind every successful blog have focused keywords oriented content. You need to do proper keyword research before writing a new post and extract some valuable keyword for your post.
For Keyword research you can use different free and paid tools. Depend upon your choice which one you use and what kind of information you want to know. I will suggest you Ubersuggest and Keyword everywhere (chrome extension). Both tools are free and easy to use.
Finding best keywords by using Uber Suggest:
Now go to Ubersuggest and search for a keyword on which your planning to publish a post. After that hit enter and you will get complete information about that keyword. Which includes Monthly searches, Competition, and CPC.
In the above screenshot, I use the term “How to make tea” and go all the information about that keyword. It has around 8,000 monthly searches and low competition. Which mean if I work on this keyword I will get 80% traffic from google on this keyword. We have to use related keywords in our post as well. So, now it’s time to click on the keywords ideas.
Now you can see other related searches of the same topic with complete metrics and SEO Difficulty. You can filter to fetch keywords according to your requirement. Keywords under 20 SE Difficulty are low competition keywords and you can target them for a new blog. Select keywords and save them into a file.
