Do you want three effective ways to find tons of highly targeted keywords? The problem with most keyword research is that it starts by going to Google Keyword Planner, which only will spit out a fraction of the ideas you need, and requires a lot of creativity to get going. 3 easy keyword research methods you can do in less than 10 Minutes with A FREE tool by THEHOTH
In this article, I’ll show you three easy keyword research methods that you can perform with free tools.
1. Find “Easy Win” Keywords
Did you know you might be sitting on a hidden pile of gold? If your site has been around for a while, there’s a good chance that with a few changes you could drastically improve your traffic. The vast majority of the traffic is on the first page of Google – especially in the top 3 positions, which can account for more than 30 percent of the total traffic!
It’s great to be in the top 3, but what about all the keywords that you’re ranking for below that in positions 4-30?
Google already “likes” you for these keywords and sees you as relevant, you just haven’t broken into the top positions. So if you could find these keywords that your site is ranking for, and boost them up, you could see a massive jump in traffic!
THEHOTH want to move keywords that are just missing the first page to make the move up to the first page and THEHOTH wants keywords at the bottom of the first page to move toward the top.
How do you find these keywords?
You can use THEHOTH free tool: Google Rankings Checker.
First, enter your URL and click search. After it gathers the data it will display a list of keywords that your website is ranking for. Because most clicks go to the top three positions, look for the keywords ranking in the 4-30 slots and focus on boosting those up.
You can look at your pages and make sure that they are properly optimized. If not, you could add the keyword to the page in the title or H1. Additionally, you could build some internal links to the page with that keyword or some external links!
2. Uncover Your Competitor’s Keywords
The task of brainstorming for new keywords can be daunting. Especially in small niche industries, how many keywords are actually relevant to your company? The good thing is you can just uncover what your competitors are ranking for!
First, go to THEHOTH’s free tool Google Rankings Checker and type in your competitor’s URL. They can be direct competitors (where they sell the same thing you do) or indirect competitors (meaning they just market to the same people you do). Examine the list of keywords and take note of the phrases that you aren’t targeting. Start
3. Find Related Keywords
When you’re going to create a new piece of content, it’s a good idea to understand the topic at hand to maximize the amount of traffic you can get from the long tail. You know your main keyword for the article, but what other facets of the subject should you be including to help rank for additional long-tail phrases?
Here’s how to find those long tails: First, go to Google Keyword Planner Alternative and put in a seed keyword.
Our tool will spit out a list of awesome long-tail keywords you can use throughout your article to rank for more phrases! Make sure to include these variations while writing your content.
Remember that you don’t have to create a new article for every new keyword you come up with. You can also go back and add these new keywords to your already existing webpages.
Keyword research doesn’t have to be a guessing game. You can drastically and quickly improve your traffic by using these three easy methods!
