Post Importance Of Keywords

This is come beneficial thing accounting to keywords point of view A keyword is a word or phrase entered into a search engine in an effort to get the search engine to return matching and relevant results.” By utilizing accurate keywords in your content, people can be routed on to your website while searching for similar businesses or subjects, similarly by using long tail keywords in your content, your website can qualify for a higher rank in the search engine more quickly for that term which would give your business an advantage over other websites.

Carefully choosing the right keywords requires some research into what people actually search for. The use of keyword tools like wordtracker, market samurai and Google Adwords keyword tool can help you make the right choices.

Keywords are very important when it comes to Google search.

With knowing what keywords to tackle, you'll know which online companies are your opponents and which keywords can provide you an opportunity to surface into the first page of Google.

Selecting a keyword needs a lot of thinking. You need to think in the shoes of your customer. You need to think of what they'll type in if they're looking for a specific product or service in Google. If you missed out on an important keyword, chances are you're going to miss an important potential customer.

In SEO, keywords are very important because as soon as a browser pushes the enter button after typing in the word, you'll have a lot of competitor websites that are going to joust for the first page.

I do agree with this. I actually use Google Adwords to check the best keywords for my website, because in Google adwords you may check all the things that you must check the competition of the keyword, the number search results and many more.

Default With Out Good Keywords Traffic is Minimum

I can't stress it enough how important it is to select keywords that are relevant to your site's topic and that have high demand, low supply. It's very important to brainstorm your keywords and choose them wisely. You can use sites like Wordtracker or Google Adwords. These sites will give you all the information you need about your keywords. Do your homework and research them carefully. A good selection of keywords will generate website traffic. Best wishes.

You told here you check keyword competition by google adwards.As far i know google adwards only show search engine marketing (SEM) competition not SEO.I want to know what is the best practice to measure keyword competition in organic seo purpose? I prefer wordtracker.But it tough job to do.

Lightbulb choice of keywords

we also need to determine if the keywords are balanced.. are they low competition/highly relevant? high competition/highly relevant? these and more are great factors to consider when choosing the right keywords.

I'm not sure what other type of competition you're referring to. SEM competition is the same as competition for organic SEO purposes. Still, I don't believe there is a "best practice". My recommendation is to use several sources of information -- I believe you will find that you get several different results. It then becomes a matter of summarizing the results. Google Keyword Tool (free) and Word Tracker (fee) are both beneficial. You might also try SEO Quake. And there's nothing wrong with actually querying keywords using search engines to view and evaluate your competition.

I agree that keywords are one of the most important factors in an SEO campaign. All the more reason to use more than a single data source when evaluating the difficulty level of it's competition.

All the best!
