  • Keyword research questions
    • How to decide on:
      • which keywords to target?
      • how many keywords?
  • The context of your decision
    • What are the key areas of your organization?
    • What are your budget and goals?
    • What are the most profitable products/services that you want to emphasize?
    • How many pages are you thinking of?
      • (bearing in mind that more pages means higher cost)
    • Is there an existing website or is it a new build?
  • Keyword inspiration
    • Information in your company documents
    • Your prospects
    • Your competitors
    • Using keyword clouds such as Wordle.net
  • Using SEO X-ray
  • Is it a new or old website?
    • New websites:
      • It takes a long time (e.g. 1 year + for some) to build up credit (e.g. Google page rank) with search engines
      • The indexing (adding to the search results) of a new website can take three weeks +
    • But:
      • No negative history of spamming or irrelevant content
      • Can do it right first time and competition are unaware of your developments
    • Old websites:
      • Need to evaluate the current position in terms of what works and what does not.
      • How? – Analytics tools such as Google Analytics
  • New or existing website
    • New website:
      • Start with external analysis
    • Old website:
      • Use internal analysis
      • Analyse competition
  • Establishing the market
    • Problem: the marketer might be using different language to the prospects
    • Example:
      • Electrician thinks about “house rewiring”
      • But the customer searches for “home rewiring”
      • Particularly popular is the search related to “cost on rewiring homes”
    • Remember – marketing is about meeting prospects’ needs?
    • So, what keyword do you optimise for?
  • Keywords selection stages 3. Popularity : how frequently are searches made using this term 2. Specificity : how broad or narrow is the chosen keyword 4. Competitiveness: how many competitors are targeting this term (e.g. PPC costs) 1. Relevance: to your business
  • Source: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
  • Plan for “leather repair” business Based on the above: Primary Keyword: Leather Car Seat Repair Secondary keywords: “ leather car seat cleaner” “leather car seat care”
  • Some tips…
    • Consider the use of misspellings and typos
    • Local dialects and abbreviations
    • Singular and plurals
    • Use thesaurus
    • Analyse customer comments and feedback
    • Research social media and feed through keyword cloud tools
  • Keyword tools
    • Some are free…
    • https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    • http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com
    • Some are subscription based…
    • www.wordtracker.com
    • adcenter.microsoft.com
    • www.keywordiscovery.com
    • Semrush…
  • Things to bear in mind
    • It is much more difficult to increase your ranking for a popular term than a secondary one
      • Hence plan for immediate and long term impact
    • Select 1 primary and 5 to 7 secondary keywords per web page
      • (you will later write content for these keywords aiming for at least 500 words per page)
  • Plan examples
    • Primary keyword:
      • “ Leather Car Seat Repair”
    • Secondary keywords:
      • “ leather car seat cleaner”
      • “ leather car seat care”
    • Use latent semantic content – variation on a theme
  •

    • Only 30 days free use
  • Keyword research objectives
    • Helping to establish a well-defined "Internet identity" for the client, and
    • Creating significant and valid keyword lists for SEO campaigns
  • Internet identity
    • Domain name
    • Company name
    • Products/services name and description
    • Color scheme combinations
    • Other ways of differentiating the website from others
  • Keyword Discovery process
  • Branding vs. Customer Acquisition
    • Branding Strategy
      • Key performance indicator volume of impressions
    • Sales are secondary to generating lots of buzz and awareness
    • You are therefore interested in broader and less specific keywords
    • More exposure will not bring as much targeted traffic to your web site
  • Branding vs. Customer Acquisition
    • Acquisition Strategy
      • key performance indicator new customer conversion
    • Conversions could be to download something, pick up the phone and make a call, go to a physical store or maybe find a local store
    • The first principle is to understand the prospect needs
    • These prospects are generally typing in longer and more specific keywords
    • You should begin developing your keyword list with more specific keywords in mind
  • Branding vs. Customer Acquisition
    • Which organisation would be interested in which strategy?
    • Pie manufacturer
    • Leather repair specialist
  • Hybrid or blended strategy
  • How many terms?
    • PPC will target more than SEO
    • SEO terms should be seen in groups or themes
      • Home page – can include 5 or so keywords
      • Other pages – more focused on 3 or 4 keywords
    • The number of web pages on your site will determine the number of keywords needed for your campaigns
      • the marketing budget might include constraints too
  • Normalised purchasing process
  • Keywords for the purchasing process
  • Bottom line effectiveness
    • Specific terms are nearer the purchasing decision and therefore would result in higher conversion rates
    • Broad terms can have a higher volume of search but are least effective for conversion rates
      • can be very expensive when used in PPC
  • Seasonality of Keywords
    • When do people search for your keywords
      • Hours
      • Days
      • Months
      • Seasons
    • PPC is one of the ways you can be very precise in your campaigns
  • Seasonal fluctuation
  • Misspellings
    • Spell the word phonetically
    • Add or remove letters
    • Look at the potential for typos on the keyboard
    • Check if these were used by searchers using keyword tools
    • Examples of local searches conducted for
      • “ mortgage” - 110,000
      • “ morgage ” - 90,500
      • “ mortegage ” - 91
      • “ morgauge” - 390
      • “ mortage ” - 49,500
  • http://www.google.com/jobs/britney.html
    • The data below shows some of the misspellings detected by our spelling correction system for the query [ britney spears ], and the count of how many different users spelled her name that way. Each of these variations was entered by at least two different unique users within a three month period, and was corrected to [ britney spears ] by our spelling correction system (data for the correctly spelled query is shown for comparison).
    Over 590 misspellings
