    Introduction

    I keep seeing people asking how to do keyword research so I have decided to do a quick over-view on how I do my own keyword research.

    There are many ways to do keyword research, but its all about what you find works for you, and all method works to a degree so don't be too worried.

    METHOD STEP BY STEP

    1) Go to Google and type in your main keyword.

    [​IMG]

    2) Press on your keyword and a new window should open with google and your keyword typed in it. Put your keywords in quotes and press enter, you should now see a figure, this number is showing you how many people are you competitors.


    [​IMG]

    3/4) Put &start=990 to see how many pages google is showing with your keyword.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    5) Insert intitle:"keyword" and press search to see how many of the competition have done on page SEO and have the keyword in the title on their page. (part of on page SEO).

    [​IMG]

    6) Insert inurl:"keyword" and press search to see how many of the competition have put the keyword in the URL. (this is part of on page SEO and helps alot for ranking)

    [​IMG]

    7) Insert inurl:"keyword" inurl"keyword" and press search and you will see how many people have done proper SEO and are REAL competitors for your keyword.


    [​IMG]

    8) Lastly you want to go and see the PR and Age and links to see how tough the competition is for the real competition (on FIRST PAGE).


    ALMOST DONE NOW....... ONLY 1 STEP LEFT......... GO AND TAKE ACTION AND FIND KEYWORDS UNTIL IT BECOMES 2ND NATURE TO YOU.

    I learned a thing or too and I am not a newbie. I would add a quick look at G00gle trends for the phrase "How to do research" just to be thorough.

    Excellent job man. Of-course it will clear doubts of many and help them out.

    When it comes to google, I check only for 10 top spots. If its highly competitive then go for next niche, else will go for it. I never check total results and all.

    :)

    Nice job... I must admit that I never knew about that 7start=990... very nice.

    You made the "notebook" with that one!

    indeed. I'm a total newb, but I'd say how "seasonal" a subject is, is of big importance.

    I saw an article somewhere the person who wrote the article was suggesting to use the below string. I have to ask any of you who are very secure doing all of this if you think I we should leave out the anchor:"keyword" ?

    I have practiced doing keyword research lately and have found so many great longtailed keyword phrases but the inanchor:"keyword" is included in my research!. I guess the anchor is the keyword phrase linking to somewhere else like your homepage or blog right? - Does the homepage or blog that you link to with the anchor text have to have that keyword phrase in the url to ?

    Sorry for all the questions, I'm a little confused and am just trying to learn about this.

    inurl:?keyword? inanchor:?keyword? intitle:?keyword?

    Happy New Year to All!!
