    Hello everyone

    Im running this hair blog site, and using the keyword "Hairfall treatments". But i cant find any info on this keyword if its high competition or low etc.
    Im in top 10 for the keyword on google, but its a fairly new site, and less than 100 backlinks. It just seems that this keyword dont yield to much traffic, 25-50 unique a day.

    Since i have so few backlinks, and its a rather new site, would it be stupid to try and promote for a new keyword phrase instead of the one i got already to attract some more traffic?

    Thanks

    No, sites can rank for multiple keywords. If its in the same niche i.e to do with hair, then go for it.

    yes but is "hair fall treatments" the same as "hairfall treatments"?

    I cant get the google tool to show me the right one, it keeps showing the "hair fall treatments" which aint my keyword, but "hairfall treatments" is.

    When i search in google, my website home page come up at top3, but when i use a tool to check it says top30. So im a bit confused.

    If you have ranking for a keyword, don't remove it! Like others have said, add keywords to your site. If your page is full on keywords and it would make it look more spammy to add, make a new page to focus the new keywords.

    See, in this way, you can target an unlimited amount of keywords on a site, and have them do well, as long as they're all related to the same neighborhood of keywords

    So all my articles about hair care and such, some of the same words like hair, hair products, hair treatment, hair care, which are often used terms in these articles, will also be improved to some extend in G´s "mind"?

    Because then im actually improving a lot of keywords without knowing it hehe.

    google does not like this keyword: "Hairfall treatments" just keeps pushing hair loss. Have you put some back links onto your article to see if you can get Google to accept it. It looks like a keyword used by someone who speaks English as a second language.

    This is an interesting use of keywords - targeting keywords (expressions) used by immigrants

    I have to stop drinking during the day ; )
