Introduction – How to Find Easy Keywords
You might know how to do the basics of keyword research already. When you want to find competitive keywords, you are just uncovering each particular keyword or keyword phrase that you want to go after for an article that targets specific Google SERPs or a target audience.
But what if you want to find keywords that are relatively easy to rank for? Targeted keywords which do not have a lot of competition, and for which you are more confident in being able to rank and generate traffic for? We call these low competition keywords.
Today, I’m going to show you guys how to find low competition keywords (also known as long-tail keywords). This is pretty much the only method that I’m using to find low-competition keywords to go after when I’m doing keyword research. This tutorial is a good primer for keyword research as part of a broader SEO analysis (and before you start targeting high competition keywords with greater keyword difficulty).
Nick already showed us a method for allintitle keyword research. Everyone’s going to have a little bit of a different method for finding keywords given their goals. This is just my particular favorite method for finding low/high search volume, low competition keywords because it is very quick and cheap (used to be free but not anymore!).
Let’s go hunt for long-tail keywords!
