Research Keywords and your Market using Keyword Planner:

Running a successful website is like any business, before you jump in the deep end you must first research the market and see which products are in demand. It is then when you can decide if you are able to meet that demand with your services. Luckily for us, SEO guys, the Keyword Planner tool is available through Google to help you plan your next step and give you some insight into which search queries are high in volume, and how competitive these keywords are.

Using the Keyword Planner is simple and offers users the functionality to

  • Search for new keywords using a phrase, website or category
  • Get search volume and trends
  • Multiply keyword lists to get new keywords
  • Plan your budget
  • Get forecasts for those who are looking to use PPC (Pay-Per-Click) to boost their traffic.

The Keyword Planner is essential when you’re looking for some guidance on which keywords are the best for you. You can see just how many people are searching for your product or service, and pick from a list of the top related high-search-volume keywords in your industry. Targeting the most appropriate, high search volume keywords will lead to a substantial boost in your traffic, as Google will present your website to customers who are looking for you. The Keyword Planner is also helpful for finding keyword variations and similar alternatives that you may have forgotten to add.
