Hi, I’m Dillon with Social Media Top Team. We help business owners grow their business to the next level by leveraging online video, social media and unconventional marketing strategies.

Let’s get right to it. Many people want to leverage search engine optimization like Google, Yahoo, Bing and the rest, to get more sales leads for their business. So they start doing seo keyword research and find that it’s not so easy to find good keywords for their website and business. Without knowing how to find the right keywords for seo for your website or blog, you’ll get lousy results or no results at all. You’d be surprised to find out how many businesses DON”T KNOW THEIR SEO KEYWORDS! They also don’t know how to do seo keyword research. Which means they have no idea what their customers are searching for online. That’s a sure fire recipe for disaster.

We have clients who invested $1,000s of dollars in seo services with other companies only to find that they were ranking FOR THE WRONG SEO KEYWORDS. In other words, seo keywords that weren’t getting their phones ringing or driving qualified leads to their website. Bottom line, they weren’t making any money. DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

We’re going to show you 6 quick ways to do keyword research for the right seo keywords for your website or blog. These include 5 popular free keyword search suggestion tools. By the way, the 6th and final method is going to blow your mind! So make sure you stay to the end of the video

Let’s start with what are seo keywords. There are 2 different types of seo keywords: short tail and long tail keywords. Short tail keywords are 1 – 2 word phrases usually, that are broad and commonly searched terms. Like what you see here...running shoes There’s more competition for short tail keywords since they’re more commonly used.

While long tail keywords, are a combination of 3 - 6 words, or more, that are specific and relevant to the services or products that you sell. Some of their benefits include that you can more easily rank in search engines for them; they won’t have as much competition and can boost your sales conversions because these searches are more qualified searches and often are late stage prospects. You see this is a long term keyword: order running shoes online. This is a late stage keyphrase, someone whose ready looking to order running shoes online. 

So, to get started in learning how to do seo keyword research, simply step into your customer’s shoes and you want to conduct an imaginary search for what you’re selling. Or ask friends and relatives to suggest long tail keywords if they were to search for your products or services.
