Google Adwords Keywords Tool : Secret of WordPress Blog Post’s SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has a special place in the development of WordPress blog as if it is succeed, you can help us in generating huge incoming traffics from search engines. Without knowing the basic idea of SEO, it can be pretty tough for our WordPress blog to get the traffics that it deserves.

Keywords – Key of search engine optimization (SEO)

As most of us know, the best way to ‘SEO’ing  our blog post is by inserting keywords that not only related to our WordPress blog but has huge users/searchers that attached on the particular keywords.

It is because in general point of view, by taking into account both aspects, it will bring our whole blog further up in the search engine results as the same keyword will be repeated in every blog posts which therefore give strong ‘relationship’ between our WordPress blog and the keywords that we decide to use.

In more specific point of view, by using keywords that have high search volume, it can help our blog post to have better rank in the search engine result and therefore bring huge incoming traffics on that post.

However, it is important for you to know that the keywords that we have chosen suit our readers and search engine such as Google i.e. well blended into the blog post as if not, it will highly likely irritate your readers and do not stuff in the keywords which make it looks like you are spamming your own blog.

How can you know high volume keywords?

There are a lot of tools out there, free and paid that offer the service of providing you the figure of search volume on any keywords that we would like to know.

However, not each of them can give you accurate and user friendly data.

One of the tools that I find helpful for our WordPress blog is Google AdWords Keywords Tool. I have used it for quite some time and personally, I feel that this tool is user friendly and can give rough idea on which keywords should we use and consider. Plus, it is free!

Rather simply giving you only search volume for the keyword that you have chosen, this tool will give you two groups of figure – global search volume and local search volume which you change base on your target audience.This is definitely handy for those who only target their local audience due to for example language barrier and suitability of product that they are blogging about.

What else Google Adwords Keywords Tool offers?

This tool will also provide you more detailed figures that you can use to consider other related keywords. They are:

  • Keywords related to term(s) entered Add (s) on keyword that Google feels relevant
  • Additional keywords to consider –  Give you list of related keywords that are within your keywords area

With the help of this tool, you can know roughly how many search volume that the selected keyword has and give you suggestion on other related keywords.

Therefore, if the first keyword has low search volume, you can replace it with other related keyword which has higher search volume but will not affect the blog post’s quality directly.

  6. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Hi David,

    Can I know whether does this method works really well for your site ?

    Cheers!

    Tools like this is not that relevant for users who blog in Malaysian language simply because Google needs very large volume of search data to compile this and return results.

    They should tune it down for small countries like Malaysia.

  8. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    It depends actually on keywords that you use plus you do not need high volume keywords to get a lot of traffics for your blog. You just need to choose the correct niche.

    For example, my classifieds site for Malaysia bicycle fans have low search volumes as it is really specific to Malaysia bicycle fans.

    However, surprisingly even for me, it get 1029 pageviews for first week and 2084 in the second weeks. For the third, there is high chance it will be more the second week’s stats.

    See..I doesn’t matter if the keywords has low search volumes as long you choose the right niche.

    Cheers!

    I used it for the first time recently. I used to just write about a specific topic but when I first used google keyword tool to add keywords onto the post the optimized post became one of the highest landing pages on my site. I now consult google keyword tool every time I post.

  10. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Good to know that. How the changes affect the visitors Mike? Is there any increase of visitors from search engine?

  11. Mike says:

    Yes that is the biggest change I have seen. I use google keyword tool to find keyword phrases that are searched often. I then type these phrases into google and see how many websites are including the phrase. I type the phrase with quotations as well to see how many sites have the exact phrase on their site. Using that strategy I pick a keyword phrase that has high search volume with relatively low competition from other sites and try to incorporate it in the text as many times as I can. Since I have done this I have been getting a great increase from search engine traffic looking for my content. I have even showed up on page one as the second result for some of my pages for certain keywords.

  12. ariff says:

    I see. Thanks for sharing. Gonna try this for my blog. Hopefully it would work =)

  13. Mike says:

    Yeah hopefully. There is so much to learn with google keywords, so many strategies so little time haha…

  14. Mike says:

    By the way I got the idea from a free research paper on the google keywords tool over at mequoda press. I think you have to sign up for their newsletter to get it though. But after that they have tons of free papers to download that are very rich with info. Just thought I’d share.

  15. ariff says:

    Well the tool is somewhat helpful at certain times. Thanks for this great share!!

  16. ariff says:

    Wow. That’s a lot!
    How did you get it actually? Mind sharing?

  17. Mike says:

    The best thing (besides it being free) is that it is made by google and since you optimize for google mostly you get good results as opposed to using some third party software that is guessing at the keyword search numbers.

  18. Mike says:

    2500 in what currency?

  19. Kushal Chap says:

    hey if you don’t have nay use for I wouldn’t mind using it.

  20. Kushal Chap says:

    I I never thought about usig adwords before. Did it work well for anyone else? I would be interested to know?

  21. Mike says:

    i dont use adwords but i do use the adwords keyword tool. You can use it without having an adwords acct. It is a great resource.

  22. Mike says:

    any advertising dollars are worth using especially 2500. it would be terrible to waste it.

  23. ariff says:

    I use this only during certain times when using highly competitive keywords. But most of the time, I use the long tailed keyword strategy

  24. thanks for sharing , your site is very informative and technical.
