The Right Tools
You could utilize handy tools such as Google Keyword Planner or Keywords Elsewhere to determine the most related and top performing keywords for your website. The other option is to build your keyword list and strategize with the words provided. Either way, make sure to build an excel sheet or document to neatly organize all your findings. Decide which category you’d like your website to be ranked for. Then survey your keyword findings and group them together with similar topics or strategies.
To build your keywords list, answer the following questions:
- Which key terms do people use to learn about your company?
- What keywords about my product or service do you want to highlight?
- What needs does your product/service meet?
- Which keywords does your closest competitors rank for?
- Where is your current rank? What rank do you want to reach?
The power of keywords can be used to influence your visibility on a search engine and understanding how to use it will shift your strategies in developing other seemingly minute parts of your business, including images and video. Rank your keyword groups and deploy each set within a specific type of content on your website. This categorization technique will help improve your SEO when picked up by various search engines.
