You can go directly to Google to use their keyword tool or use Traffic Travis to check the keywords. The advantage to using Traffic Travis is the added ability to quickly sort through the keyword possibilities. Either way you enter your keyword ideas to determine what the keyword traffic for each keyword.

In sorting through the keywords the problem solving keywords are preferable to the generalized keyword. Long tail keywords preferable with traffic counts of 30 hits per day or greater.

You then sort fhrough the list produced that meets all of your criteria.

When using Google Keyword Tool, I have better success when I click on "exact". At this point, I know exactly what people are searching for. Using "broad" or "phrase" can sometimes be misleading.

While selecting keywords you should focus on key phrases having maximum words and they are know as long tail keywords for easy fruit.

I agree. Choose long tail keywords. Use buying keywords (keywords that convert well to sales). This includes product name and crisis keywords (help, stop, fix, crisis, save, prevent, rescue). Think of what your buying customers would type in and use those as your keywords.

All the best! :)

Hi Lloyd,

It depends on the niche you are looking at, but you would want to choose exact over broad and phrase most of the time. This way, the keyword tool will give you results for the same keyword you entered.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hey Loyd, I look at exact and Phrase match. they are usually much more accurate than broadmatch.

Also, look at the volumes of those searches, depending on how new your site is and how much experience you have in your niche.

If I am new into a niche, I generally look at keywords that get the highest traffic possible with low seo competition.

Using traffic travis, I find keywords with low on page seo, and low backlinks. I often target keywords with low search because most people think these keywords aren't worth targeting, and so they don't optimize for them. this is one reason I like long tail keywords.

Google keywords tool is a nice option , except of the fact that the info you get when logged in and not logged in is different. And of course Google keyword tool is really relaying on the adwords. So get an account of course, and the keywords with the highest searches and the lowest competition are very nice.You can get the low search low competition also.
