How to use keyword research as traffic building method?

If you are serious to make money from blog, you must think about keyword before you write. And use that keyword repeatedly (more frequently than your high school English grammar teacher would say "it's a good English.") in your blog.

Why you have to use a keyword?

Using keyword in your blog is one of powerful ways to bring traffic to your blog. Why? It's simple. People search using keywords to look for information. If your blog includes those keywords, they will find your blog fromrepparttar search engine result page and will come to you to findrepparttar 137575 information they were looking for. But is that really simple like that? Not exactly. Two things must be considered.

  • The keyword you're using must be related to your blog topic. When you're blogging about 'racing car' for example, if you use 'basketball' as a keyword, it won't help you bringrepparttar 137576 traffic. Moreover, ifrepparttar 137577 visitor came to you to find information about 'basketball', he will leave your blog having bad impression on you because he couldn't get any relevant information from your blog.
    So,repparttar 137578 rule number 1 is to userepparttar 137579 keyword related to your topic.
  • Suppose you discovered high demand keyword (a keyword many people uses) related to your blog topic, does using that keyword guarantee you a lot of traffic? What if many bloggers are talking about similar topic using that keyword? If so, although many searchers use that keyword, probably they'll go to other bloggers who are ranked more highly inrepparttar 137580 search engine than you.
    The point is that you have to findrepparttar 137581 keyword that has high demand but a few supply. In other word, you have to find 'niche keyword.'

  • Use a keyword search tool. I found Search It is handy and best of it's free. A con is that an additional promotion page provided by SBI (Site Build It) will be open. But you can close it and that doesn't harm you from using search tool, Search It.

    Here is a short introduction on how to use "Search It!"

    Once you get through Search It, you will see Search It! window which has 4 boxes. Suppose you want to talk about 'car',

    • choose 'Brainstorming' at step 1 box inrepparttar 137587 "Search It" window,
    • choose 'overture suggestion' at step 2 box
    • type 'car' (without quote) at step 3 box
    • click 'Search It!' button (you may notice that there is step 4, but you don't need to fill it at this stage. If you try write somethingrepparttar 137588 program will tell you that you don't need to choose at this time.)
    • then a leading page will be open, which explainsrepparttar 137589 technique you are using. Click 'Please .....results.' link to seerepparttar 137590 result.
    • the resulting page looks something like,
      Count SearchTerm
      3467549 car
      1914166 car insurance
    • You seerepparttar 137591 number in Count column? That'srepparttar 137592 demand ofrepparttar 137593 keyword.
