    I am trying to build a website..I want to do keyword research for SEO purposes.

    Can i use Google Keyword research tool to find out which keywords have low or medium competition and the monthly global searches for SEO purposes?

    Hi ,

    Yes you can. I'm using it too and I think many many webmasters are using it. One suggestion - When you search for the keyword always remove "board" searches and thick "exact" and "phrase" this will give you more accurate results for the searches.

    Cheers

    Petko

    then why some people who are doing seo told me Google Keyword research tool is not for SEO. its mainly for adwords competition research and that i should use tools like Market Samurai....

    is that true though?

    That's kind of the point of doing keyword research, to find out what keywords you should optimize for.

    Adwords is a perfectly good place to do your research. Make sure to be specific with your searches narrow them down to exact and then to local searches to see how many monthly hits a keyword gets in your target area. If you dont do this then you will be one of the guys opening a "just found a keyword with 5,000,000 searches low comp !"

    Adwords is served for advertisers not for webmasters. So when it says low competition it means, for a paying adwords user they should be able to purchase plenty of that keyword for the money because other advertisers are not actively buying it. It does not mean " this is an easy keyword, with a bit of seo you will own it"

    After you have narrowed your list of keywords down(and you should try every possible variable, you may suprise yourself) then you should really do manual research.

    Go to Google and enter your keyword and look at the competition. If you read through the front page and think to yourself "I could beat these" then try and do some research on your competion. If you have a backlink analysing software, see what links they have. You can use a free version of majestic seo or ahrefs for a basic check or install the seomoz tool bar and have a limited look.

    If you find the first 5 pages of google is full of wikipedia, amazon, big review companies, large consumer forums etc then leave the keyword alone. It is always possible to rank any keyword in any niche but dont be a hero. Look for keywords that you think you could pop onto the front page with some good content and steady link building. Always aim for the front page, in most niches the second page may as well not exist.

    Oh, sorry - are we on spoonfeedme.blackhatworld.com? I also didn't notice that.

    And if you ask a question that can be fully covered with YES or NO, then what else you expect?

    You need to hang out with a better crowd, where do you think Market Samurai pulls its keywords from?

    Or maybe you have no idea what you and they were talking aboot and don't know that adwords keyword tool is for pulling keywords and Market Samurai and other dozens of tools are for actually analying the competition

    YOU ask a question. YOU are acting like a mentally retarded pissy 5 year old who thinks the world revolves around him and has to have what he wants. And YOU are going to be insulting the people that are answering your questions?

    How old are you? 12? You think these people owe you anything? Good luck surviving in the world with that attitude.
