What is Keyword Research?
Keyword research is the basic process of SEO.
In keyword research, we find the important and popular terms, words or phrases people type in search engines to get results.
It is very important to know what people search on the internet.
There are different types of searches online for different purposes.
Yes, the people’s purpose or intent is also very important.
Based on the intent, we can classify the keywords into four types
These classifications help us to categorize search terms and optimize content to target the proper audience.
While doing keyword research, we need to prioritize
- Search Volume of the keyword
- Intent of the keyword
- Competition of the keyword
How many people search for a phrase or a term online to get a particular result?
This number is important in keyword research.
If we focus on a search term people are not searching for, online is a waste of time.
So, it is better to have a decent search volume for a particular search term to get good traffic.
People have different reasons to search online.
What are the people’s reasons or intent behind a search?
They may need information or services, want to buy something online, or visit websites. These are the intent behind a search. Knowing this intent is very important in keyword research.
Once we identify the keyword or search term for our content, we need to check how competitive that keyword is from an SEO perspective.
