I was recently writing an article which gave me an idea to write this article. That sounded kind of funny, but that did happen. After thinking about this idea some more I decided to go ahead and share it with my readers. I’m sure there are lots of bloggers who are interested in promoting their blogs for free. Well, believe it or not, but it really is possible. All you got to do is search for keywords, but not just keywords, they must be the right keywords. So, let’s keep on reading and you’ll find out How To Search For Keywords my way.
First, Log in to your own Google Account at Google AdWords.
Then, Click on “Reporting and Tools” tab on top of that page. After a menu rolls down, find and click on the “Keyword Tool” option. You should get to a page that looks like the one below.
Open a second tab in your browser, or a second window of your browser and go to Google’s Search Page.
On the Keyword Tool Page you need to find an empty text area titled “Word or phrase (one per line)”. That is where you need to enter your desired keyword/s.
At the bottom of that text area for keywords you’ll see a check-box with the text next to it like this: “Only show ideas closely related to my search terms”. You can put a check mark into that check-box only if you Only want the results below to be your exact keywords or very related to your keywords. If you uncheck this little box, then you might get some broad results below that page. Sometimes I like to check both results with the check-box checked and unchecked. Remember to click on the “Search” Button to see the results.
I like to sort the results from highest to lowest using the “Global Monthly Searches” column. These numbers tell you how many searches are happening monthly for each specific keyword. I recommend for you to get a closely related keyword for your article which should have this number in the “Global Monthly Searches” column higher than the number we are about to get at that other page we opened.
Let’s go to that page now, the one with the Google’s Search on it. Choose one keyword from the Keyword Tool page and enter it here in the search box of Google Search Engine, and I want you to put the quotes around it too before clicking the “Google Search” button. So, let’s say we picked a (car game) keyword without parenthesis from the results on the Keyword Tool Page which had 823,000 Global Monthly Searches. Then we put it just like this with quotes around it “car game” into the Google Search. After we searched it, the number of results came out to be About 2,820,000 results. This keyword is NOT good.
You need to try to find a keyword that has more searches than results. If there are already millions or hundreds of thousands of results for something that you are trying to write about, then your article will never be found. I recommend finding a keyword with lots of searches and with barely any results. The fact is that it is extremely hard to get to the top of Search Results when there are millions of them. If there are more than 50,000 results for some specific keyword, then you are pushing it already.
If you’ll concentrate and spend a good amount of time with that Google’s Keyword Tool, you could find some precious gold keywords. What I mean by that is that there really are still available awesome keywords, believe it or not, but when I find them, it seriously feels like I found gold or diamonds. When you’ll find that one awesome keyword, you can either build an awesome website or blog on it, or you can just use it for an article.
Make sure to somehow have that awesome keyword in the URL, whether it be an article, a website, or a blog. Let’s say that awesome keyword would have been “car game”… For a blog or website you would want to get a domain name or URL that would have it like cargame.com, thecargame.com, or bestcargame.net Whatever it is, make sure that cargame is in the domain. For the article, make sure to somehow use it properly in the article couple of times or so. Also, make sure that the Permalink of your article has your keyword in it… For example: blog.com/2010/01/02/best-car-game-review/ See how car-game keyword is in the domain even if it’s not a cargame.com? The title, the description, and the keywords of either your article, blog, or a website must have your desired keyword with which you wish to be found in the search engines.
Anyway, if you want to learn even more of Free and very helpful information on this topic, then you should read this article called Getting a Good Domain For Your New Business Website by Valik Rudd. Basically, Valik is a really good or one of the best web developer, designer, and Internet Marketer. I took this idea from him and I applied it many times in my articles instead of just website domains.
