Another great tool is the Google Keywords Tool. Type in the words “used cars” and see a lot of suggestions. Google Keywords Tool doesn’t know everything – so you might have to take away some of the words it is suggesting.
So now you have a list with a lot of words right?
2. Now check out the traffic
You might be able get the rank position 1 on Google with the phrase “old blue beautiful cars from New York”, but if there is only 10 people looking for that word phrase, it’s not going to help you to drive traffic to your site right?
So – go to Google Keywords Tool and write in the words from your list.
Now you can check how much traffic there is on the internet from your suggested words.
Well this was step number 2. Still easy right?
3. How much competition
Now step 3 is about competition. If there is a lot of competition for a keyword, it will get very difficult for you to rank number 1 or number 10.
You might have found that the word “used cars” is a very relevant word for you, and it gets tons of traffic. But but but (there is always a but right?) – when you are checking the competition for this word, you will find that the top 10 companies on Google all have over 50.000 backlinks and a lot of traffic to their site. So no matter how much you are trying, you might never get enough link-juice or traffic to get into the top 10.
You can check the competition in different programs. I am using Market Samurai for this. Its not a free program, but it saves me a lot of time.
Another program is the SEO Power Suite. And I am sure there are a lot of other great programs out there.
In Google Keyword Tool you can see if a competition is high, medium or low. But remember the competition in Google Keyword Tool is for the PPC keywords.
Okay I know this step wasn’t so easy – but it’s still very important.
Now we are almost done here.
Now you have your keyword for a page. Pick out a main keyword or keyword phrase to a page. And you can also pick out a second keyword or keyword phrase – but no more for a page.
