Hi Flocks, I was out of this BHW forum for some time, I earned some money outside the internet for expenses. I wanted to earn some handful of $ via blogging. so I am starting a how-to/tutorial blog and monetize with Adsense So This Is How I Do a Keyword Research. (i don"t know how much right this is, I am not an SEO pro) Please share your steps too. Requirements: Semrush Kwfinder Keywordseverywhere (chrome addon) Scrapebox Keyword fest (Free Software) Moz (Free toolbar) Seo quake (Free Toolbar) Proxies (i use google public proxies) Create a folder name KEYWORD RESEARCH under that create sub-folders name it as: Elimination Tournament Semi-Final Final Follow Guide: 1.) I first find my competitor ranking keywords using Semrush, I then export those top ranking keywords and filter out via volumes, remove keywords below 1000-US searches. 2.) I will be with some just 10 keywords now, So I get some list of my competitor's competitor on Semrush I follow the point 1 now. so I have about 100 keywords on my excel sheet ( Remove duplicates) and save them in Elimination Tournament folder 3.) Now ONLY Pick short tail, one-word or Two-Word keyword and put them on Scrape-Box keyword scraper and Append A-Z, Select level 3 and press scrape it should come up with approx 50k -80k keywords. ( import it and save those in excel in semi-final folder) *Import Long tail keyword which was left over in Elimination Tournament folder to semi-finals folder, because you can't scrape long tail keywords, you get inappropriate keywords. 4.) Now open Keyword fest and paste same one-word or Two-Word keyword, Follow these settings on Keyword fest: *Checkmark (Generate keywords from suggestion results) *Set keyword suggestion chapter depth = 3 *Checkmark (Keyword suggested must start with original keyword *In settings milliseconds between quires - 1500ms - 2000 Import those keywords into the corresponding spreadsheet in semi-finals folder.Now you will be with more than 100k - 200k keywords. DONT FORGET TO remove duplicates 5.) Open Keywordseverywhere Do a bulk check 10k keyword per session, Ignore searches below 1000.Trim unrelated keyword or outdated keyword, Copy all that to the new spreadsheet called keywordseverywhere in semifinals folder. (in settings change search volumes to your corresponding countries) Optional: I use keywordsdb.com, if any short tail keyword search volume is high I use it as a seed keyword. 6.) Now I import those keywords to Kwfinder. 700 keyword per session allowed, Now I look for keyword competitive below 25 and not below 1000 US searches, I mark them as favorite and list them kW-finder, at last, I import to semifinals folder into the new spreadsheet and name it as kW finder. 7.) Now I open new spread-sheet in semi-final name it as intitle check, eg - intitle:"abc"inanchor:"abc" in google search and record total web results It should look like this: 8.) open scrape box and open the addon called google competition checker paste those in title lines and press start, after the check finish, I will remove all of the values with a value of over 300,and save this keyword in FINALS Folder and the final sheet should look like this: 9.) With SEO quake and Moz toolbar installed, I search keyword manually and I see these MOZ: DA below 20 PA below 10 Seo QUOKE: DS below 6 TS below 29 LD below 200 there should min 2 or 3 sites of these rules to processed forward. *some PBN links may be hidden and 301 redirect, check before writing content 10.)Use those related search keyword in your content, it doesn't need search volume or check metric just use in content, and use LSI. Sorry if you find some Grammer mistakes, English is not my first language. I am writing this at 2:30 am. Sleepy Zzz Do you know any other way to find less competitive keywords please share/reply on this thread Practice Practice Practice Practice ............. Next Thread I will come up with the detailed competitor research because choosing unrelated competitor you may get keywords that you can't rank for.
