In this article you will learn more about
keyword research and why it is so important for your new site. You will

When building a new website, the keyword research is perhaps the most
important part of your marketing campaign. Here you have the ability to
pinpoint the keyword phrases used by searchers seeking a product or
service and this information is invaluable to you both in paid search
and traditional organic SEO.
In order for you to find all the best keywords for your site, you will
need a keyword tool. My recommendation is that you use Wordtracker for
you research, but many also uses Keyword Discovery with good results. I
actually think that Keyword Discovery now has databases with larger
searches too and it also gives data that goes back for a year while
Wordtracker only has for about 2 months.
For example, Keyword Discovery returned 354 relevant keywords for a
brand new site of mine. Then it's always a good idea to organize your
keywords with Keyword Results Analyzer or a similar tool. These kinds
of tools are the answer for webmasters who want an easier solution.
The keyword research is the process of selecting the optimum keywords
with best performance for your site. It's these keyword phrases that
will help users on the web to find your site. Just imagine if you have
spent months on fine-tuning your pages for a better ranking with the
search engines and you end up with no traffic. Then it will all be a
waste of time if the right keywords are not targeted.
When doing keyword research you should focus on those with low
competition in the beginning. The competition is the measure of the
amount of other websites that are also optimized for a given keyword.
The lower the competition is for a keyword the easier you will have to
rank high for it.
Keyword results can also be limited to countries and specific
languages. The term keyword research refers in general to the process
of finding specific words and strings of words that web users type when
they search for information. Sometimes it can also refer to the
analyzing process and determining what keywords are the best for your
Up til recently Google held around 50-60% of all searches on the
Internet and the other 50% were from Yahoo, MSN in large. Therefore you
should only care about Google supply when choosing keywords for your
site. You will find this to be the best way to do it.
Another tool you can use is the Google Toolbar, which is free. It makes
highlighting keyword, checking density, viewing Page Rank and backlinks
quick and easy. Personally I'm also a big fan of the Google Keyword
Tool, which I find particular useful for finding theme words for my
articles. These words are not just based on SEO, but also on relevancy
and how much people are willing to bid for the words.
