    I have been using a few keyword finding tools i.e. Google keyword suggestion tool, Google Trends and Yoast keyword checker.

    The business I try to rank is a SEO optimzing company, like so many here on BHW :) Now when I look into Google Trends and Googles Keyword tools then all the kwywords that the competition is ranking for have between 5 - 10 searches the last few months, some have even NO searches at all.

    The keywords I have been researching are of course what most will want to do as the first: seo optimizing, keywordoptimizing and so on.

    Does someone has any clue what a SEO company should rank for if not SEO Optimizing and related keywords?

    I have of course checked Internet marketing, online marketing and stuff like that, here it is a different picture.

    What keyword tool are you using guys? if anyone don't mind to tell.

    yes that's exact what I tried... 0 searches for most of the keywords I put in there.. and the keywords I actually found that had some search there it was only 5 - 10 searches per months!

    We speak all non paid (NO adwords) traffic!

    I think, you should try to rank keywords such "how to find customers for business" and add some posts like "Why well optimised website is good for your business?" to your site.

    Maybe dumb questions but are you searching in the language you try to rank? Have you put on the filter to see the searches from your country. Once I was really confused when I searched for stuff like that here in Sweden and then I realized it was swedes searching for it in US as the country I had selected was US.

    Hopefully you get it sorted out!

    Put your url on google keyword planner and select your location to get an idea on what keywords to for.

    A great tool for this purpose is Semrush, but it is not free.. You can simply take a few good ranking competitors and look what keywords give them more traffic

    First off, like hekke said, make sure that you are looking at searches for keywords in the language and location of your customers.

    Second, dont stay glued to the generic/common keywords, think about what your customers want. They want to expand their business, convert more, become popular, build a brand, make money with their sites, lots of keywords for such a broadly used field as SEO.

    Third, obviously having an online SEO firm means you gotta have some rankings, irony and all that. But maybe put some focus on actively recruiting customers, local or not, by finding and approaching them.

    Use spyfu and check for other advertisers in your niche and check what keywords they are advertising for, should give you a rough idea but you will need to research it a bit more.
