If you have a new website, or you are trying to come up with great new keywords for the site that you already have, you may find that it is more difficult than you originally thought. Here are some tips for coming up with great keyword terms.
As with all classic brainstorming techniques, you will want to have writing tools available. You will think of your product or what your site is about. Come up with any and all terms and phrases that have anything to do with your product or service. Write down anything and everything that comes to mind. Don’t worry if it seems a little “out there.” Eventually you will break this down. After coming up with as many ideas as you can, you will go on to the next step.
You can do a reverse search to find out the amount of searches per month each keyword phrase has. There are a ton of different reverse search engines out there, and one of the best is Google’s. Though this search is technically for ad words, it is a great tool that many SEO professionals use on a regular basis.
Check Your Competition
Seeing what your competition is using for search terms can be very beneficial. Though some find it unethical to take search terms specifically from their competition, others find it a great tool for ideas. This can be helpful in the brainstorming phase of finding keywords.
The better your keywords, the more likely you are to get the right traffic. Spending some time on your keywords can help your site significantly.
