Keyword Research (SEO)

Keywords Are Essential With ANY Online Business!

The first thing you need to do in order to build an online business using keywords is build a website! You can learn everything you need to know about creating a business with my #1 recommended program.

You need quality keywords to get traffic to your website. A keyword can be anything someone types in a search engine. If someone types “what is the best makeup” in Google, then that would be a keyword phrase you can use on your website to attract visitors who want the best makeup available. You can use a keyword tool to view important things you need to know to find a quality keyword.

Here are some of the most important metrics when looking for a quality keyword:


(1) Monthly Searches – These are the traffic numbers that you should put some time into. I recommend that if you are going for natural rankings, ANY traffic is a good amount of traffic. When you rank under keywords your campaigns will grow tremendously.


(2) KQI (Keyword Quality Index) – This gives you instant data of keyword quality for any marketing campaign (PPC, SEO, etc).  If you have a quick way to determine keyword quality, you can efficiently perform research.

(3) QSR (Quoted Search Results) – This is the ULTIMATE competition metric. This quickly gathers information from the search engines, and tells you the exact number of pages out there that are competing under that EXACT search term. If you aim under 400, you have a good chance of getting ranked (300 is ideal). There are millions of these keywords out there and it is very important to have a tool that gives you this data.

(4) SEO Power – This determines whether or not a keyword is a good candidate for getting SEO rankings. If you can get rankings, you can earn money online! This is based on the traffic, the nature of the keyword, competition, and the keyword quality. It makes for very efficient research.

The keyword tool that I use (which is the best) is Jaaxy! It gives you everything you need listed above. Read more about it here!

You have access to a FREE Keyword Tool at Wealthy Affiliate also. It’s the only place I have seen success online, but it does not give you everything listed above.

Update: Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy are now partners!! So you have access to the Jaaxy Keyword Tool through WA!

    1. Hello Carlos,

      I wouldn’t label it a scam without doing a review on it, however $997 is a big chunk of change to pay for some training.

      I’ll do a review on ecomm elite soon so I can know more about it. Thanks for the comment 🙂
