    Hey guys, I haven't shared anything substantial on BHW for a little while now and I'm finally getting around to putting together a massive, all-inclusive guide to keyword research.

    The guide is going to include how to come up with potential keywords, as well as how to analyze your potential keywords to pick a winner.

    I have an outline ready but I'm curious to hear from you:

    • What are your questions regarding keyword research?
    • What do you struggle with?
    • What are you confused about?
    • What roadblocks have you encountered when doing keyword research?

    I'll answer every question in the guide, either within the guide itself or at the end in the FAQ section. Just tell me what you're curious about when it comes to keyword research and I'll give you my thoughts when the guide comes out.

    Thank you,

    Jared

    Most newcomers have trouble judging a keywords competition.

    They also have worries about beating big authority sites like amazon.

    Maybe you could shed some light on that.

    Yeah I have both of those covered ("can I beat this authority site?" and "general keyword analysis tips"). Honestly not sure if anyone will have anything I haven't covered, but you never know.

    What are the best free keyword research tools? Also would you rather target many smaller keywords say 500-1000 searches per month or something harder but has more searches per month.

    Jared, you were selling some awesome keywords on here a few months ago. My question is, did you find buyer keywords with such low competition like e.g. best xxxxx, xxxx reviews, xxxxx for sale, or were they just general keywords?

    What is your idea of building amazon affiliate websites using keywords that are not buyer format? e.g. laptop, instead of best laptop. Do these convert? What has been your experience.

    Thank you very much,

    DJ

    ok, so I have a question, a very noob question, so if you don't want to answer it doesn't matter.
    I read everywhere that content is king, and I understand it is for Blogs based websites, but what about ecommerce website ?
    For exemple, I have an online shop, so for each product, I made the description as relevant as possible, but on my homepage, It show only category and products. Does it mean my homepage will never rank because it doesn't really have any quality content ? and so it brings this second question, when I do offpage seo, where should my backlinks point to ? to my homepage ? to my products pages ?
    I admit I am pretty new to all of this, and few weeks ago I didn't even knows what SEO meant... but I read the forum everydays, and I already learnt many things and try differents methods,but I still confused on many things. So if someone understand my post and can answer, it would be a great help

    1) How do you judge which keyword is easy to rank ? Dont talk about the competitive number of LTP or Ahrefs, I want something people can do with just their brain.
    2) How do you often plan your project ? Focus on the whole niche, writing long long long long and high quality content and hope for it to index in thousands of other keywords - or write 400 words articles focusing on specific keywords ?
    3) People are switching to mobile, what is your vision on the next 4 to 5 years ? few years ago people search very differently - the same about the future
    4) Is there any tutorial, or tips or tricks for me to find a client that can guide me on writing ? My writing skills are not good so I would like to find someone who can give me a chance to pratice my skills.
    5) Which type of keywords that convert the highest number of sale ? I am going with best XXX and XXX review 2017, just wonder if you can share your own experience about this.

    I'd say judging the value or the competitiveness of a keyword is perhaps the biggest struggle for most of us.

    If you write a guide, I would be most interested in a list of the best keyword research tools and their respective accuracy! I often found that keyword research tools are inaccurate with emerging keywords. Which tool is the best to determine the search value of new keywords, like a newly released hardware or movie or phenomena (for ex. "fake news")?
