What is keyword research?

Keyword research and selection is the process of finding and researching words and phrases that people type into search engines when they are looking for something specific. Keyword research is the main foundation of any effective search engine optimisation campaign or PPC campaign. By knowing the keyword phrases you wish to target allows a highly focused SEO campaign to be carried out.

Some keyword phrases are highly competitive while others might are infrequently used in search. By targeting the wrong types of keyword phrases a website will attract non relevant traffic which will greatly reduce the website’s ability to convert that traffic into sales.

However by identifying and selecting the most relevant keyword phrases will help your website attract an increased level of relevant traffic to your website. So for any effective SEO and/or PPC campaign to take place, it is imperative your target the most appropriate key phrases for your niche.

Long tail keywords

Current search patterns indicate that people are now getting more savvy online and no longer search for generic single word search queries. In stead they use keyword phrases that are composed of three or more words that collectively are more specific to what they are looking for.

These types of search queries are called long tail keywords are more likely to convert to sales than shorter, more generic keywords because there is less competition for them.
