Keyword Research is not just a method to find the phrases used by the User to reach the site. It is also a method to establish a connection between the mindset of the User and the Website. If we had a good command over understanding our site User and his/her mindset to reach the site, it will be easy and more convenient for us to take further decisions to use the specific keyword on your website
By listening to the word “Keyword Research”, one word that strikes in every mind is “Google Keyword Planner”. But let me tell you, other than Google Keyword Planner, there are several other keyword research tools that are used to search the keywords related to our sites. Here, we are going to take a look at the two simplest ways to search for some keywords related to our website, as well as a big keyword research tool named “ahref”.
Some other methods for keyword research
The first method for keyword research is to use the analytics and smart features of Google Search Engine. Google Search Engine has a smart analytic feature that suggests to you the keyword related to your search and interest. It will only show you the keywords related to your searches in Google.
For Example, If you have a site related to website development based in Delhi. Now for the search of your site, you will type the keywords like app development company in Delhi, website development company in Delhi, android app development company, or digital marketing company near me. Google Search Engine will suggest to you the long-tail as well as short-tail keywords just by typing 2-3 words of your head keyword. Because as per the data of search engine, the searcher uses the same kind of keywords to reach the sites related to his choice.
Not Let’s take a reference of a site to understand it better and accurately. For now, we are taking a reference to a site named “BiharApps“. BiharApps is a leading app developer in Patna also working for other services like website development, Digital Marketing Services, Android and iOS app development as well as website & application testing and IT Consultancy.
For the accurate results of the keywords, it is suggested to set the location for which you want the keywords. If you want the keywords searched by the user sitting in Delhi and looking for websites that are Delhi-based, then you must the keywords which are used by the users of Delhi. Setting Location will help the search Engine to bifurcate the keywords on the basis of Location.
Now how this method works in Keyword Research. After setting the precise location of the area, you will go to Google Search Bar and start typing the Head Keyword of your Site. Do not type the whole keyword at a time immediately to get more ideas about the keywords.
Practical example for this method.
Step:1 – For searching keywords related to a Website development company in Patna, just type “website” and look at the searches suggested by the Search Engine. i.e, Google will show the results as follows,
Step:2 – After following the 1st step, further type “Website devel” and google will complete the rest with its smart feature and will appear with the results something like this.
Step:3 – Now to be more precise, type “Website Development Com”, and the search engine will show you the results as appeared in the image below.
Step:4 – Now its own choice to specify the location and be more accurate. Type “Website Development company in Pa” and you will get the suggestions related to all the locations starting from the alphabets from “Pa” like Patna, Panipat, Pakistan, Patiala, etc.
The second method is a simple to understand and easy to use method. It is the method that suggests 8 keywords related to your Head Keyword. For example, if your Head-Keyword is “Website Development Company in Patna. The google search page will suggest 8 other keywords which are nearly related to your Head keyword like Best Website Development Company in Patna, software development company in Patna, eCommerce developers in Patna, website company in Bihar, etc.
These suggested keywords are displayed at the end of the search results. A demo of suggested keywords is spotlighted in the form of an image below.
