Google's Easy, Free, Keyword Research Tool

Considering Google's large search market share, I feel that using the Google Keyword Research tool gives me relevant information for keywords number of searches, competition and approximate cost-per-click if I were to advertise using those keyphrases.

This Hub is a short, easy "How to" on using Google's keyword research tool to find keywords to use on your website, in your hubs, in your blog posts, etc. to help improve the visibility for your website(s).

Keyword Research Made Easy

Keyword research should always be the first step in optimizing any website or before starting to write a blog post or hub that you would like to attract visitors to. Knowing how people are searching for what your site has to offer can enable you to use those words as you write and improve the visibility of your website for those important keywords and phrases.

Google's keyword research tool is easy to use. There is an external version located at: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal that you can use, however, it is limited in the amount of information available, that is, it does not show the Approximate Cost per Click price for keywords.

You can signup for Google Adwords at: http://adwords.google.com. If you know someone with an adwords coupon (look for Google Certified Adwords Partners) you can give Adwords at try with little or no cash outlay as you learn how it works.

      Every online SEO article content writer should start the research on this page! Other tools are great, too, but you need to find out more about the keyword popularity before you get started. Awesome video.
