How To Do Keyword Research
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The internet is changing rapidly and Google is putting more and more emphasis on the quality of the content. This means that keyword research is also becoming more and more important to stay ahead of the increasing competition. After reading this article, you will know how to do keyword research and to get (and stay) ranked in Google's search engine.

Doing proper keyword research is the difference between not making any sales and earning 200 dollars per day!

Before I show you how to do keyword research, let me tell you something about Google. Google has recently made some really big changes that can either negatively, or positively affect you. You see, Google is fighting against so called "content farms". Content farms are website with massive amounts of low quality content, that has the sole purpose of getting people's websites ranked higher. A lot of article directories are considered to be content farms by Google and their rankings has dropped dramatically. This means that a lot of people are now noticing a significant drop in their traffic.

However, Google now also reward websites with good, quality content much faster! You can use this to your advantage by only focusing on writing quality content that people actually want to read and stop trying to "trick" Google into thinking your article is good, by just smearing your keywords all over the place like it's peanut butter!

These changes also mean that the competition is much tougher now. You can bypass this competition, by changing your perspective on how to do keyword research.

Before Google made these changes, the best keywords to use, were the ones that got over 1000 searches per month and had less than 5000 "quoted results".

Now, you're way better off writing 5 articles, targeting 5 different keywords that get just 200 searches per month and have less than 300 quoted results, than writing one article for a keyword that gets 1000 searches per month.

I know what you're thinking and yes, this means 5 times the work. However, as I mentioned, Google also rewards good content quicker nowadays, so the results are much, much better! People are now actually getting ranked within one hour in stead of one month!

How to Do Keyword Research Properly

Use Google's very own keyword tool to find keywords that get around 200 searches per month.

TIP: Use a broad search term first, and continue to find more detailed ones. For example: Guitar -> Acoustic Guitar -> Cheap Acoustic Guitars -> Cheap Acoustic Guitars For Sale.

Once you found a keyword you like and is relevant to your audience, go to Google's search engine and search that keyword phrase in quotes "like this".

The number of search results (directly underneath the search bar), is very unreliable, so what you need to do now is go to the very last page of search results. When you've reached the last page, check that number again and you'll find that it's much more accurate now. If that number is 300 or less, you're good to go!

Just remember to continue writing good, quality articles for your targeted keywords and you'll soon see how generous Google has actually become!

Have a great day, and good luck!
