Keyword Research Rules For 2014

As we ring in the New Year I find that we have to really update our keyword research strategy. We, like everyone else, are at the mercy of Google’s algorithms but we didn’t want to start from scratch because a lot of what I’m doing is working really, really well.

Keyword Research

We’ve spent a lot of time doing keyword research and studying projected volume for both us and our competitors. It was very time consuming and may no longer be the best tool to use. Google has recently limited the amount of data they share regarding keywords. I found out the hard way when data I was looking for just wasn’t available anymore. We’ll no longer be doing our competitive analysis that way.

The solution? Going back to basics. We had a good old fashioned brain storming session, really putting ourselves in our customer’s shoes. How can they benefit from purchasing products or services from our online business? After a month we looked at what keywords and phrases were performing well, increased their bid amounts and added some more. The hard work does pay off and increased our ability to earn money online.
