Naturally,there are many keyword research tools on the market that claim to be “the best in the industry”, providing you with “the most accurate search results”…but is all this really true and do they actually provide you with the quickest, simplest method of checking if your keyword phrase is a good choice or not and more importantly…do they do this all for free?
Well, let me introduce you to Jaaxy, (in my opinion) the leading keyword research tool in the industry, and here’s why I say so…
Jaaxy is a keyword research tool that allows you to conduct your keyword research in a quick, simple and effective manner.
When using Jaaxy, there are literally 4 aspects to understand before you can be on your way to ranking under a great keyword.
Let’s take a look at them below :
1) QSR (Quoted Search Results) – this is the number of competing websites that are ranked in google for that exact same keyword. It is the most important metric because if you try to rank under a keyword with a lot of competition, you are potentially not going to get a lot of web traffic or it may a very long time before you can get ranked on the first page. The ideal number for QSR would be under 100
2) Avg – this is the average number of searches a particular keyword receives per month. This is the second most important metric when it comes to rankings. Typically, you will want to look for a keyword that attracts some traffic, but be aware, large amounts of traffic are not always a good thing.(this is explained in detail later on in the post)
3) SEO -This is basically a scoring system that ranges from 1-100 (the higher the better) and determains the possibility of you being ranked on the first page of search results if you decide to use that particular keyword phrase.
4) KQI (keyword quality indicator) -this works hand in hand with the SEO rankings and gives you an idea of whether the keyword is of good quality or not. This is especially useful when looking for keywords to rank for PPC (pay per click) ads etc.
Didn’t We Mention Something About It Being FREE?
of course we did,Jaaxy keyword research tool allows you to make 30 absolutely FREE keywords searches to prove to you that they genuinely provide you with value instead of try to sell you some sort of complicated system. In fact, why don’t you try it out right here, right now.
All you need to do is type your desired keyword phrase in and click “search’…and you are on you way to understanding keywords better and being ranked higher among the different search engines.
Valuable Tips When Conducting Keyword Research
let’s take a look at some valuable tips to consider when doing your own keyword research.
If you have your own methods that work for you, that’s great, but here are some key factors to consider when choosing your keyword phrase.
Low competition : when choosing a keyword to rank under, you don’t want to even consider a phrase that will drown your keyword and allow it to be lost in a sea of competition, because what’s the point of writing an article that will hardly ever be seen?
The thing is that the higher rank you receive, the more traffic you should gain and the more sales you should make…so there’s no point in aiming to get lost in a sea of competition.
Point 1 : look for a keyword that has a low QSR. Ideally, you want to target the ones with less than 100 QSR..and the lower the better.
Decent traffic : Did you notice how I didn’t say “high traffic”? This is because usually the high traffic keyword phrases have a pretty high QSR, where your article will probably get lost.
So typically, anything over 100 average searches per month is ideal but I would even consider those above 50. Simply because if the keyword phrase is receiving about 50 searches a month and has a very low QSR, your chances of ranking on the first page are great compared to a higher QSR keyword.
You see, ranking for lower volume keywords adds up over time and instead of trying to climb a high ladder of competition and score big (which will probably take a lot of time),you can be building decent traffic from lower QSR keywords much faster which should prove to be more lucrative on a recurring basis.
Point 2 :look for decent traffic (as mentioned before, over 100 is ideal, but anything from about 50 is ok)
Focus on your grammar : when looking for a keyword phrase, you want to use something that makes grammatical sense or otherwise, it would just be weird would try to create content under a keyword phrase that just doesn’t make any sense.
Note :If you feel like you are trying too hard to squeeze your content under that keyword phrase… I would suggest that you don’t use it.
Let’s take a look at an example below :
“how to throw ball” versus “how to throw a ball”
which one would you find easier to write content under? My guess,”how to throw a ball” because it makes senses, right.
Point 3: target a keyword phrase that makes grammatical sense.
Conducting keyword research properly is vital to you post’s ranking on the various search engines and if you use the wrong tool or one that just doesn’t make any sense to you, you are automatically disadvantaging yourself and potentially missing out on crucial traffic and possibly even many crucial sales.
I have been using Jaxxy for a while now and can strongly assure you that if you understand the four aspects listed above, you are very likely going to enjoy using this simple, yet crucial tool that can potentially set you apart from your competitors.
