I just have a blog and sometimes write for hubages.I understand that niche finder and keyword tool is necessary to promote our articles. What is the difference between niche and keyword tool. I read that we need to find niche on topics with high search but are less in competition.Where can I find a freeniche or keyboard tool? Also, I looked at youtube and saw that there was google keyword tool.But do we need to pay as we sign up for goodle adwords? I sometimes write in my blogger account and I want to know the appropriate keywords to be used as title so that it will have more views than before.I am new to this.I just need to find a tool for free and how to use it.If someone could explain all these things to me.
Studying keywords is on the way out.
I don't research keywords anyway - I just look at the competition - how many other people are writing on the same topic?
The most important part of your hub is the TITLE. If nothing else, get that right.
Thank you.But how do you check the competition? I read that if the competition is high then there is a lesser chance for our hub to be listed in search results. So, hubs with less topics in the net but more search is what we could write on, am I right? Thank you:)
Yes that's right. You want to check:
-That not many sites have the exact same words in the title or URL.
-Not many sites are talking about that exact topic.
-That the sites aren't high quality authority sites.
Do a search in google... if all of the top listed sites for that search are high quality sites dedicated to that niche then you are unlikely to beat them with a hubpage..
If the search returns pages on various sites that are not dedicated to the niche and maybe even only partially related to what you are searching for then you can probably rank for that search term on HP and certainly on a dedicated website for that niche..
Hope that made some sense....
Hmm..I'm getting it. I used to think before that I need to write articles that are highly searched on the net.But slowly, I realized that those articles are already there which are tough to compete.Thanks for explaining.I'd also like to know if there is a free tool for that. I saw keyword tool of google in youtube and how to use it.But when I tried to sign up it seemed like we have to pay as it displays ads on our website which I'm not trying to do.
The google adwords tool is free to use, you sign up for a google adwords account but just don't spend any money. That will help tell you how many people are searching for specific phrases.
Just do a search on "using the new google keyword tool" and I am sure you will find plenty of information on using it.
Competition on this tool is competition between advertisers bidding to show their adverts, not on how hard it will be to rank a page in Google search.
If you want to know how hard it will be to rank your title or keywords just do a search in google and see how many pages it finds and what those pages are.
You can find software that will measure competition for you, however this is very unreliable and you can often get a better idea by just taking a good look at the actual search results.

I think my last try was over a year ago. I honestly have never had success with it EVER, even with third party tools, bar ONE title about three years back. If you're freaked out by it, don't stress. You don't HAVE to do keyword research to get good traffic. Personally my two go-tos right now are:1....

Can someone explain to me in plain English what competition means with regard to us?It says there that it gives an indication of how many advertisers are bidding for a keyword. But what does that mean?I always thought high competition meant that too many webpages are after the same keyword, but now...

Hi guys,For a while I've been using Google's Keyword Tool to research high-paying keywords and their estimate monthly traffic. Normally, what I do is that I look for Low competition keywords with around 1,000 monthly searches, and less than a million results in Google Search, then I look at the...

I'm really confused about how to get more traffic to my hubs. I have been on hubpages for 5 almost 6 months and have 38 articles. I have read the tutorials and articles on SEO and backlinks and have tried this in different ways. I have tried writing articles of various types. I...

I've only used Google's Keyword Tool, and I don't think I'm using it to its potential; I kind of just plug in words and see what I get. So, I'd be interested, if anyone knows, a more fruitful way to use it; particularly when it comes to finding long-tail keywords, which I don't exactly know how to...
