Are you looking to do keyword research for your website to rank high in the search engines to improve organic traffic to it and wondering which keyword research SEO tool to use? Like you I was looking too until I found Jaaxy keyword research tool.
With all the keyword research tools out there you might ask why was I lost? I was still looking precisely because of the number of keyword research tools out there. That can make it tough to choose the best to find out what keywords to use to optimize your articles, posts or websites for the search engines.
Secondly, since the rules of the SEO game have changed a lot, I found that most keyword tools don’t deliver the way they should, or if they do it at all, it is to churn out outdated data. I might as well do without any data at all!
Thirdly, many keyword research tools I tried gave me great amounts of data, metrics and #’s, which I had to make sense out of for my SEO campaigns. But did you think I was able to separate the chaff from the grain?
Luckily I found Jaaxy keyword research tool. With it:
1. There is nothing to INSTALL since it is web-based
2. It does not use Alexa principally in determining competition
3. It does not require several searches to accomplish a singular task
4. It pulls awesome results from ALL search engines and not only Google like the others
5. It delivers the results in far less time than any other keyword research tool out there!
6. The results are laser targeted to my SEO campaign.
Seeing is believing, let’s head over to Jaaxy and do a keyword research for a site to optimize for the search engines whose theme is “avoiding scams online”.
How to find keywords for your SEO campaign
1. First, let’s head over to www.google.com and type in the keyword “scams” (without hitting any key). This way we know what people looking for scam matters are searching for. Right away Google suggests some keywords related to scam as in the screenshot below.
2. Now, let’s go to Jaaxy and plug in one of the keywords, let’s say “scams online”. Below is the suggested keywords I obtain:
What to make of these results?
When doing keyword research for SEO, all that should matter to you are only THREE metrics:
• How much competition does the keyword have (The lower, the better)
• How much traffic does the keyword get (The more, the better)
• Does the keyword make sense (To a human being)
Let me explain the third point a bit. Which of these two keywords makes sense to you? Do SEO campaigns and SEO do campaigns? Ah, you got it. So if you find a bizarre keyword among the lot in Jaaxy, don’t use it. But if you love it, plug it once again into the tool to come out with a keyword which makes sense.
Now, on the above image you find details like Avg, Traffic, QSR, KQI, SEO, Domains and Related. (To see what they mean, you simply hover your cursor over them in Jaaxy!)
Avg is the average number of searches that the keyword receives per month. The higher the number the better because that shows people are interested in the keyword.
Traffic This estimate is the number of visits to your website if you achieve first page rankings in the search engines. (Don’t wince about the small numbers. These figures are your best ally since they add up quickly. Little drops of water make a mighty ocean. Imagine ranking for 50 articles, videos, etc. each bringing in an average of just 20 searches, that adds up to 1,000 visits to your site!)
QSR stands for “Quoted Search Results”: it is the number of competing websites ranked in Google for this exact keyword. In other words, the QSR is the number of websites with this exact keyword phrase on their sites. This is the competition you will face when you use the keyword on your website. So, the lower the figure, the better.
KQI means “Keyword Quality Indicator”. The keywords showing green dots are great, those displaying yellow (there is none in the above image) are to be used with caution, and the ones with red beside them are poor and are therefore to be ignored.
SEO is a score based on traffic and competition; the higher the score the more likely you will rank for this keyword on the first page (scale of 1 – 100, higher = better)
Domains denote the availability of domains that are related to the exact keyword. Since you are doing SEO, you can safely forget about this metric.
Related are keywords that are related to your target keyword.
For SEO purposes, you will concern yourself only with the first 5 metrics. Yet, using the first 4 keyword metrics alone, you can also put together awesome keyword lists that will get ranked in Google with ease. Traffic and competition…and maybe a little KQI are all that is necessary to find keywords that you may need.
As you see, all the keywords in the above image are SEO ready, as we aim for SEO around 90.
Now, you go to answers.yahoo.com and repeat steps 1 and 2 as I did for Google search to find keywords that people are using to search for scams. Yahoo answers are to find related keywords for which people are asking questions and obtaining answers. Do the same for ehow.com. This is to find keywords related to how things are done. Each time, remember to save your keywords in the Jaaxy tool. But in case you forgot, simply click history and Jaaxy will fetch all your researches for you!
Now, you have an arsenal of SEO-ready keywords to use to write articles or posts or plug into your website and see it get free traffic which will make it rise in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs).
Below is a video walkthrough which, although geared towards promoting Jaaxy, explains the process above wonderfully.
Now that you’ve watched the video, do you want to give Jaaxy a try as your best keyword research SEO tool?
Jaaxy Starter = Free (For keyword 30 searches)
Jaaxy Pro = $19 per month, $199 per year

(But I will suggest going for the Jaaxy Enterprise as it has freaking awesome power! But if you want to try the free version first to see what Jaaxy can do, fine!
