One thing that struck me while I was building the Seo Keyword Search and Mapping tool was that keyword analysis really can reveal a lot about what people are thinking about and what they are looking for. Seo keyword analysis really is the largest scale unprompted recall survey you can possibly do. You can apply it to almost any industry and it gives you a detailed picture as to what customers of that industry really want.
Of course, prior to the launch of the Seo Keyword Search and Mapping tool it was pretty hard to actually see that picture but now it’s quite easy.
So what can you use this new found understanding of your customers to do?
Well, obviously you can create AdWord campaigns around it – that’s why Google provides the information to you in the first place. And clearly you can craft better landing pages with more keyword friendly titles, headings, body content and images on the page. But why stop there? Here’s four more things you can do with the information:
1. Plan your next blog post using it – make sure you’ve covered all the topics people are asking about for your industry
2. Create a digital sign using the keywords that are most interesting to people who visit your retail locations
3. Use them in Twitter campaigns
4. Use them to craft better direct marketing messages whether email or postal
Recently I was faced with trying to disentangle the list of keywords generated by Google’s Adwords keywords tools. Which were important, which weren’t? Which were related, which weren’t? How could I group them to form pages that covered the entire field? How many pages would I need to do a good job assuming that each page targeted just two or three words each?
I looked for a tool on the web but couldn’t find a suitable one. So I built one.
To use this tool go to Google Adwords, download the Adwords editor tool, generate your keyword list, save it to a CSV file, edit it in Excel to remove any lines with no ‘Volume’ data, then upload it to the Seo keyword analysis tool.
Now sit back and watch as it untangles the mess of keywords to give you a clear picture of your knowledge domain.
I’ve recently been focused on SEO efforts for my fledgling startup so I thought I’d pen a few word about SEO for my friends and followers. On the next page are some notes for anyone just beginning their SEO efforts and on the page after that is a tool I created to help with the process of picking keywords.
