    • Other Intelligence You May Need
      The PPC Bid Price of the Keyword from Traffic Estimator of Google Keyword Tool)https://adwords.google.com/select/TrafficEstimatorSandboxShows you the estimated price per click, daily click & cost, etc.
      Keyword Difficulty Level Tool by SEOMozhttp://pro.seomoz.org/tools/keyword-difficulty/Shows you a % index on how tough a keyword is for SEO
      Keyword Effectiveness Index (KEI) by Sumantra Roy (most probably Indian Bengali) provided by WordTrackerhttp://www.wordtracker.com/find-the-best-keywordsShows you a value that tells you how effective and the keyword is, in terms of the competition
    • Analyze Keywords
    • Interpret Results
      Average Number of searches done locally in a month
      Average Number of searches done worldwide in a month
      Relative Index on how competitive is the keyword
      More search value = Worldwide popular keyword
      More search value = Locally popular keyword
      More index value = more competitive or more effective keyword
    • Things You Should Consider
      Popular Keywords have high competition (not always)
      Popular Keywords don’t sell or convert well
      Popular keywords are very good for reputation and branding
      Highly competitive keywords are hard to beat
      Highly competitive keywords are also those keywords that sells, assuming that the industry is mature enough
      Trying to beat global competition can take you years of efforts
      Finding the best match for your identity is a good option, even if it is a long keyphrase or belong to long tail keyword category
      B2B Keywords are the ones that businesses will use, not general public. So, they might be less popular than other similar keywords
    • Further Keyword Analysis
      Assess if the found keywords are relevant to your core-words using the excel formula “=IF(ISERROR(FIND(I$3,$B4,1)),"Not Relevant","Relevant")”
      Do a word count to filter out Long Tail Keywords into separate sheet using the excel formula “=IF(LEN(TRIM(A2))=0,0,LEN(TRIM(A2))-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ",""))+1)”
      Finally sort your results by Relevance, then by Competition (highly effective keywords) and then by Global Monthly Searches (highly popular keywords)
    • Filtering Keywords
    • Removing Irrelevant Keywords
      Using the excel formula “=IF(ISERROR(FIND(I$3,$A2,1)),"Not Relevant","Relevant")” find the relevant keywords that matches your core-words
      Sort the keywords according to relevance, so that the irrelevant keywords are shown together
      Go through the irrelevant keywords and delete them
      Keep the keywords that are not relevant, but may be related
    • Long Tail & Phrase Keywords
      Using the excel formula “=IF(LEN(TRIM(A2))=0,0,LEN(TRIM(A2))-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ",""))+1)” find the word count in a keyword
      If the word count is more than 3 or 4 (use your judgement), then separate them to another sheet for long tail keywords
      You can use them as topics to generate contents for blogging, link building, and social media content distribution
      Keep highly relevant long keyphrases in important keyword list if required
    • Dealing with Conflicting Keywords
      Google Keyword Tool shows same popularity and competition result for broad match keywords like: web design company, company design web, design web company, etc. You can see similar keywords like this when you sort by popularity and competition. But the keywords show different bid price. Choose the keyword with highest bid. Additionally, you can do a phrase search to see which keyword has the highest number of competing pages in Google, Yahoo or Bing.
      The popularity does not tell you if it will fall in future, while other’s popularity will rise. Use Google Trend to understand this.
      When you collect keywords from various sources, you also get duplicate keywords. Remove them from excel with remove duplicate tool.
    • Score Your Keywords
      Use 10 score scale for either Global or Local Popularity (whichever target market is important for you), Competition, and Keyword Difficulty
      You can also bring in other factors with custom 10 scale scores and specific weights, like: B2B relevance (1-10), how specific is the keyword to your business (1-10), how converting is the keyword (1-10), etc.
      Determine your best weight for Global or Local Popularity, Competition, and Keyword Difficulty (use personal judgment or monitor output)
      Find weighted average of the keyword and sort keyword accordingly
