Help with Traffic Travis

Hello. I am very new here and just finished watching Video 6 in Step 1 - Search Volumes and Competition. I have a list of over 600 keywords that I downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet. I downloaded the free version of Traffic Travis and started to enter my keywords in it. The free version only lets me input 5 KWs at a time and it takes quite a while for all of the data to be gathered. I've looked through the forum and it appears a lot of people use the free version. Am I missing something? Do people really use the free version when they have so many KWs? It will take forever to check out all of my KWs. Also, where does the SERP number come from? All of these values differ greatly from the global or local monthly searches. Does this value even have anything to do with monthly searches? In addition, it doesn't appear I can copy and past the page rank median, page backlinks median and difficulty like they do in the video. Are others having this problem? I have Market Samurai and am wondering if this tool might be easier and less time consuming to use. I don't mind doing hard work, but I don't have the money to purchase the paid version of Traffic Travis. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Amy,

I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion caused. Traffic Travis has limits but not on the number of keywords you can search for. For information on Traffic Travis' daily limits, please see:

Traffic Travis' Daily Backlinks Limit

You might want to try adding your AdWords info. Using proxies might also help.

600 Keywords is a pretty big list. I suggest you narrow those down. You can keep the original list for reference, but from the 600, pick out the top keywords with high buyer content, how-to keywords, etc.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Thank you for your response. In the training he said to get a list of 2000 keywords, but I will narrow mine down. I found some keywords having to do with products for my niche, but the search count in low (under 100 in some cases). I should focus on these keywords before focusing on more general keywords with a higher search volume since the intent to buy is probably higher, right?

Try to mix your keywords- high, medium, and easy. You should at least have these three when choosing your keywords so you'll have the right number of traffic as well. When it comes to promoting which keywords, try to pick the ones that have high volume of searches but at the same time are quite easy to rank too.

Good examples of these keywords are long tail keywords. 100 search volume or below is too few, you can promote these keywords but do not prioritize these. These keywords may just be your additional keywords for your site.

I hope I am making sense :)
