most of the things I have learnt wasn’t taught to me by anyone, however many thanks to blogs like shoutmeloud.com and blogging communities, they’ve been really helpful.it has been quite a bumpy ride filled with trials and errors and that is why I have decided to dedicate a few of my blog posts to sharing tips for newbies who have just started blogging and are still pretty much confused.One of the things I have learnt to be very essential in the blogging industry is the use of keywords in creating relevant content. I used to think that sitting in my room and writing whatever I liked was enough but I soon realized that if I want my content to be a research tool, one that people will keep reading and referring to for years to come then I must create relevant content, something that people are looking for.
how?!! simply by doing a little keyword research before I create my content.
Every day millions of people search the Internet looking for answers to questions they cannot ask their friends or teachers, as a content creator you need to know what these questions are and create content in line with it.
Let your content answer a question within your niche, before you create a content, get into the mind of the public.
A lot of people use free Google keywords research tools
It’s great but I want to share with you four other free keywords research tools that I find really helpful. I am no tech expert so I will make it really simple.
SEMrush : I stumbled on this free tool and it’s amazing, easy to use and very insightful it even suggests websites where you should get backlinks from . Check it out, it’s relatively free.
KWfinder: this tool is absolutely free and very easy to use as well, simply type in the keyword of the blog post you want to write about. example “” happiness ” and it will dole out a couple of suggestions of blog topics including insights on the level of difficulty of each title.
Answerthepublic.com : I particularly love this tool because it’s very thorough. It literally suggests to you ways to answer the public and suggestions are given alphabetically and in so many other ways. Type your keyword and it will suggest content ideas for you in seconds.
LSIgraph: this is also a great tool, LSI stands for latent semantic indexing. LSI keywords are keywords related to the searched term that are semantically linked. If incorporated into your SEO strategy, then LSI keywords can increase organic traffic and improve rankings.
check them all out. Good thing is they are all free. Who doesn’t want some freebies every once in a while.
