How to increase your income using Google Adwords Keyword tool - Step by Step guide

One advice, that a new writer / hubber hear from other successful authors is “Use proper Keywords in your article to increase your traffic and earn more”. But, isn’t it look like a rough statement, and sounds like “Latin and Greek” for an American, if you have no idea about what a keyword is, and how to search it?

I were not aware of this concept for a long time and recently made a research and found out that secret ingredient of the secret successors. So, here is my step by step guide to help you on how to use the keyword search tool efficiently and make use of it in your article writing skill to increase your potential earnings and be a successful online money making writer.

Step 1

OK, let us say, you all set ready to write an article about Gardening. You have lots of ideas and tips to share with everyone who loves gardening. But how much sure are you, that people will find your article on top of their search and get benefited?

To make your article on top of the search engines like Google or Yahoo, you should have “Keywords” richly and nicely used in your article every here and there, but not in a way that it looks like you brought a bucket of keywords and dumped it in your hub / article.

So, why should we use keywords to make the article come on the top?

Now comes the concept of SEO which means Search Engine Optimization. The duty of SEO is to find the keywords lying inside the articles and rank the page of that article accordingly. The more the keywords, the more high your ranking would be. Based on this rank, your article will appear in the search engine pages. So, if your article gets a good rank, then it will come in the first page of the search.

Let us say, I too write an article about gardening and have used lots of words like “Vegetables in Garden”, “Vegetable Garden Designs”, etc… in my article, but you didn’t use any of these words, then whose article will come on the top of the search? Obviously mine. So, I get more traffic and there by my online earnings will increase.

Step 2

“Alright, now I understand what a keyword is and its importance. Just tell me how to find the right Keywords for my article. How do I know what keyword the SEO tool searches for. Any help?”…

I heard you my friend. I am coming, I am coming. That is our next step.

So, now we need to use keywords rightly inside our article. But we don’t know which are the keywords people use to search in the internet related to gardening. There comes our savior Google Adwords Keyword Tool, which will reduce all your burdens.

Open the Google Adwords Keyword Tool in your browser. Type the keyword “Gardening” in the search phase. I have given you the screen shot to make your work easy. Click on Search button. Now, you are landed in a place full of keywords, your secret for success. The page shows you how much the term is searched globally and how many ads it can attract, etc…

So, got your right keywords. What next?

Step 3

Though you got the bunch of keywords, what is the use if you don’t know which one earns more money for you?

So, in the same Keyword Tool, click on the column button (shown in the red circle) and select the “Estimated Average CPC”. CPC means Cost Per Click. Your article will earn more money for you if you have those Keywords with high CPC. You got it right. Even after getting Keywords, you can sort them in the order of earnings and choose from the list.

You can even try various other keywords related to your article. Let us take the same example of Gardening. So, you can check the Keywords like flowers, Rose gardens, simple gardens, removing weeds from garden, etc... and find their corresponding CPC, the advertisers competitions to pay for it and the amount of searches these keywords can bring. Depending upon the results, you can select the keywords that can match your article.

Step 4

Time for your article. Just pen down all your thoughts. Forget about the keyword and just write casually. Once when completed, it is time for review and adding up of keywords in your article.

OK, check out the places wherever you have used the word “it”, instead of “Gardening”. Do you find a term like “It is a refreshing work”? Then change it as “Gardening is a refreshing work”. Wow, you are doing fantastic. Just replace all other possible places of useless words with earning keywords. Done.

Step 5

Oh what are you waiting for. Go, get it published and let your keyword push your article on top of the search and get those extra cash from the advertisers to your pocket.

I have one more secret recipe of getting more traffic to your hubs. Wanna to learn? Check it out HERE.

Happy Earnings.

THANK YOU!! This is the best explanation of how to use the keyword tool that I have seen. I was even thinking the key words were what we should use in the title, but they are also used in the body of the article. You didn't assume that the reader knew anything, so you explained everything wonderfully. Now I'm excited to use the tool! Voted up, useful, and awesome!
