well more informative for me i got more knowledge. actually every one have different interest so keywords will different. keywords must be business relevant and search engine friendly. i use Google AdWords: Keyword Tool i think it is best helpful to search keywords traffics and search engine friendly...
Do you consider also the Related Searches that shows by google?
I'm pretty sure he does it for each page, since Web pages are independent documents and are treated as such by the search engines........:)
So here is a little of what I do... Find 20 of your top competitors and read their website and note how they describe their products or services. You are looking for descriptive keywords. You will also be looking for regional variations in language.
Then check out what they used in their Keyword Meta Tags. This will allow to find what the keyword tracker tools miss. WordTracker is based on only 1% of web searches.
Try focus groups as well.
Use a thesaurus to research synonyms for your core keywords Create a taxonomy of all the areas of focus in your industry. It can be helpful to imagine creating a directory for all the people, projects, ideas, and companies connected to your site.
Taxanomy is where you classify things according to a predetermined system, like saying I'm going to classify all the plants in my back garden and I'm going to use a system where I do it by whether they're a weed or a flower. Then I just put each plant into it's category.
I think what jack4ireland is saying is that you create your categories for your niche/industry and then slot the keywords into each one as you find them. I just build up a list of 100% relevant keywords, I don't bother with less relevant keywords and I try to keep it to only a couple of categories simply because of the amount of work involved.
For example, I'm about to do this for a debt collection agency but their keyword list includes 'debt collection' 'absconder tracing' 'credit control' 'vehicle reposessions' and a bunch of other phrases. Every one of those could generate hundreds of related phrases and could be considered as separate classifications, so I'm only going to do it for their core phrases otherwise it'll take me a week and I'm only getting paid for 2 days, and that includes all the off site optimisation and monitoring etc.
part of kw research is guess work and surveys in real life, I tend to call up a dozen people I knew from all walks of life and pretty ask them what is it they encode in the search bar if they want to search for a certain "insert keyword here"
then I took notes and start 50% of my targeted KW's from there. hope that helps a bit in the discussion here
The point is though that this kind of analytical approach philosophy will yield the best keyword phrases. I'm sure the actual approach will change as search changes. The biggest change on the horizon (or already here depending on how you look at it) is personalised search which I haven't touched on at all. that's going to be major for 530.
Personalized search and 530?
Would you please elaborate? I'm unfamiliar with both concepts/terms.
530 is SEO but using numbers instead of letters, it's just an internet slang thing.
So, I have a question for this smart posse.
I am moving up nicely in the ranks for a keyword set and quite by chance see another one flying up the ranks as well.
Both are in the 200's now. The question is, should I continue to move on the one, or now should I set up plans for both at the same time?
first you have to gather your keywords according to niche of your site after that use a keyword tools available online and the results of your major keywords should be 100 search per day and then search on google using that keyword to know how many are your competitive.
it seems you have a pretty comprehensive method, it covers all the areas I use when producing keywords for a site.
Thanks for sharing the information.It is informative and great.
i think keyword analysis is the main step of seo.
First we select wordtracker or adwords suggestion tool to check the traffic of keywords, then checked the competiton on serach engine.
I suggested for those keywords which have more traffic and less competitive .
There is another aspect of keyword development that may begin to change things in search and that is the use of LSI or LSA. This is Latent Semantic Indexing and Latent Semantic Analysis. It is about the relationship of where your words appear in your text.
Here are a few links on the subject.
This may be the direction that search is going.
