    Hey BHWers,

    I've been doing a lot of reading about keyword research but I haven't found a site, guide, or article that explains the process from beginning to end. I've basically pieced everything together but it would be very helpful if someone could point me in the right direction!

    I have a niche that I want to target, a list of 30-50 keywords, I've used the google keyword tool but every site has a different approach. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Can someone clarify what defines 'a good keyword' and provide details if possible? For example, let's say i want to target 'losing weight'. How do I determine whether it's a good keyword to target? How many times it's searched? How competitive it is? If anyone could give me a range that would help me out a lot.


    Thanks!!!
    Aaron

    the best advice i can give to you is that IM is not a science. there is no set of numbers that define it as a whole. someones views might not be the vies of everyon in this game

    it best to just test it out.

    Me for example i define a good EASY keyword as one that hass 100k competing pages or less and gets thousands of searches.

    now a noob might define a good one as one that has less that 10k and 100 searches a month.

    Its all about experience level

    The only thing to do is try and then base your next decisions of of what you already know. and keep testing

    i'm in the google keyword tool right now and i searched for 'exotic cars'. I see the monthly searches, but where do you find competing pages? Is that where you go on google and search the keyword to see how many results there are?

    thanks again for your help!

    Is there no way to do it using the google keyword tool? I'm just trying to grasp the concept.


    Thanks!

    and i never even look at that #. It depends on the top 3-10 and u have to learn how to analyze them.

    And obviously searches is how many searches it gets per month :p exact is usually more close to what u'd get as #1

    I do think it's a minefield when starting out - I remember when I got in the game just after a plan, a strategy anything which went from start to finish. I still haven't really found one. But then this is what I'm collating and hoping to give back to BHW.
