    Can someone tell me what a good keyword is?
    Let's say I have a blog about tips and how to's to improve your life (Depression, anxiety etc.)
    What would be good keywords, I heard that one word keywords are bad, does that mean "Depression" is a bad keyword?

    Thanks in advance.

    What you want are long tail keywords like

    "how to get rid of depression for women"
    "how to get rid of depression for men"
    "What are the first signs of depression"


    There are a lot of keyword tools that you can use to find long tail keywords.

    Good keywords and keywords that relate to solving a problem. ie, keywords that make people want to buy a product or click on an Ad. The one's blackhatsami posted above are a good start for your niche.

    Well depending on how you are monetizing your website, what you should be aiming for is keywords that are searched by your target audience, and more importantly that have competition you can outrank. One word keywords are often too generic to deliver targeted visitors.

    Most important here is the competition part though. You want something you can really rank for. Get ahrefs, start checking their backlink profiles, if you are a beginner avoid going against domains ranked with PBNs (you'll notice them, most of the time they have 0 referring domains and rank like a boss).

    You need to work out how much you want to make to spend the right amount of time and money on a keyword.

    If you get 1000 local searches per months for "pink fluffy hand cuffs" and competition is low so you expect to rank #1 for this keyword, you can expect 500 visitors a month.

    If your conversion rate is 1% for your adsense click/amazon sale/CPA/Whatever, you are going to convert 5 times per month.

    If a conversion is worth $1 to you, that's $5 a month for ranking #1 for that keyword, so it's really not worth either spending any money on ranking for that keyword, or worth even targeting if other keywords are better options.

    If a conversion is worth $50 to you, 5 conversion a month would well be worth your time and you might not mind spending $100 on good content and links to rank for it.

    Yes, of course! Actually "Depression", "anxiety" are generic keywords which have more traffic and high competitive as well and it's really hard to rank. So, Better you could focus on long tail keywords which has low competition and also easy to rank.

    There are many tools to find long tail keywords like Semrush, wordstream, Google ad words, etc. Hope it helps!

    Google's AdWords Keyword Planner tool is a common starting point for SEO keyword research. It not only suggests keywords and provides estimated search volume, but also predicts the cost of running paid campaigns for these terms. To determine volume for a particular keyword, be sure to set the Match Type to [Exact] and look under Local Monthly Searches. Remember that these represent total searches. Depending on your ranking and click-through rate, the actual number of visitors you achieve for these keywords will usually be much lower.
