Let’s talk about how search engines understand and rank keywords. I mean “Indexing” and “Ranking”.

How search engines use keywords

Indexing: Search engine crawls web pages and indexes the keywords on each page on the internet. For crawling your web pages you need to create a Robot.txt file on your website.

When search engine crawlers visit your website. The Robot.txt file tells which page to index. For indexing in Google, there are many things to consider.  

Ranking: Search engines use complex algorithms to determine the relevance of a web page to a particular keyword or search query.

Like Google has 200+ factors for ranking.

And also made 3000+ changes every year in their algorithms.

So it’s hard to know about all algorithms. Here I will show you some main factors for ranking in Google.

  • Intro
  • First 100 words
  • Putting keywords naturally in the content

  • Using LSI keywords in Content 
  • Img ALT text
  • Adding keywords before headings
  • Anchor text

Step by Step to Keyword Research

Brainstorm Keywords Ideas 

Our mind is the best keyword researcher. Did you know? Probably you not.

Brainstorming Keywords ideas

For example, when I am writing about backlinks I probably knew what’s this and what keywords should be related to this term. 

Maybe I am confusing you. 

Let me come to the process, not the theory. 

So think about your topic in your mind. And think about what topics should be in your article.

When you search in Google it shows you this section it’s called (People may Ask).

These are the questions that people are asking or want to know. So note down these questions in your list and then let’s dive into the fourth step.

Understanding the keywords

Keywords are the words and phrases that people use to find information. But did you know there are many types of keywords? Don’t worry I will be discussing them.

Types of keywords


1: Short-tail Keywords

Short tails keywords are also known as “head” keywords. These are short phrases that usually consist of 1-2 words.

I am also saying them “Confusing keywords”. Let’s take an example. If someone searches in Google for “Coffee”. We don’t know what the user wants to know.

I mean he wants to know the meaning of the word, wants to buy, and wants to know the information about it. If your website is new you should avoid these keywords.

2: Mid Tail Keywords

Mid-tail keywords are between 2-3 words. They are hard to rank if your website is new.  Let’s take an example of mid-tail keywords  “SEO strategy” and “What are backlinks”.

As a beginner, you should avoid these keywords. Now it’s time to rank for.

3: Long tail keywords

These are my favorites and I also call them “Questions”. They are easy to rank and have a good search volume. When you enter these keywords in a tool. It will show you the low search volume.

But it’s wrong.

Think about it.

For example, your keyword is “How to get backlinks”. It means someone wants to get backlinks. Think how many people have this same question.

I don’t have the specific number but I think millions of people search for this keyword. 

Bottom Line: Try to focus on long-tail keywords. When you get ranked at the top. You will automatically start to rank for mid-tail and short-tail keywords.

Read the types of keywords that are optional to know. But It’s my responsibility to give you a list of other types of keywords:

  • Branded keywords: These are keywords that include your brand name or variations of it. For  Example “Nike shoes,” “Apple iPhone,” and “Coca-Cola drinks.” 
  • Product keywords: These are keywords that relate to specific products or services that you offer. For example  “running shoes for women,” “SEO services for small businesses,” or “dog food for senior dogs.” 
  • Location-based keywords: These are keywords that include geographic locations or regions. For example “best pizza in New York,” “Chicago SEO agency,” and “Los Angeles real estate market.”
  • Intent-based keywords: These are keywords that reflect the intent of the searcher, such as informational, navigational, or transactional intent. For example “how to lose weight,” “Facebook login,” or “buy Nike shoes online.” 
  • Seasonal keywords: These are keywords that are related to a particular season or time of year. For example “Christmas gifts,” “summer vacation destinations,” or “back-to-school supplies.”
  • Industry-specific keywords: These are keywords that are relevant to a particular industry or niche. For example “fitness equipment,” “digital marketing trends,” or “dog grooming supplies.”

Competitor analysis and keyword gaps

Identify your competitors:

Identify the main competitors in your industry or niche. Look for websites that are ranking well for the keywords you want to target.

Just type your keyword in Google.

Google search results with underscore

You will see the top-ranking websites here.

Google SERP first results

Now you have to visit the site. Then:

Analyze their content:

Analyze the content on their website, including their blog posts, product pages, and landing pages. Look at how they structure their content and how they use keywords. 

Evaluate their backlink profile:

Analyze their backlink profile and see which websites are linking to them. For this, you can use the tools like Ahref and UbberSuggest.

In my case, I am using UbberSuggest. Just type your competitor domain here.

UbberSuggest keyowrd researcher tool homepage

Go to the backlinks overview section.

UbberSuggest backlinks overview section

You will see the backlinks of your competitors.

It gives you all information like do-follow/no-follow backlinks, anchor texts,  Referring domains, New and lost referring domains, backlinks over time, and much more in one place. 

UbberSugegst Backlinks analysis

Now it’s to see the opportunity to backlinks. Just click here. Enter your domain and your competitor’s domain. It will show you the backlinks opportunity.

Identify their top-performing keywords:

Use keyword research tools to identify the keywords that your competitors are ranking for. For this, you can use a tool like Semrush.

Analyze their content and identify keyword gaps where you can create better content. 

Look for long-tail keywords:

Look for long-tail keywords that your competitors may not be targeting. These keywords may have a lower search volume, but they can be valuable opportunities to target a niche audience. 

It’s the biggest opportunity for you to rank better than your competitors.


Analyze the search engine results page (SERP):

Analyze the SERP for your target keywords and identify what type of content is ranking. Look for gaps where you can create content that better matches the user’s search intent. 

Create better content:

Use the insights from your competitor analysis to create better content. Ensure that your content is more comprehensive, more informative, and more engaging than your competitors.

Use the Skyscraper technique

I hope you have heard about this technique if not. Let’s begin.

1: Find the content that will be good for getting backlinks

2: Write 10x better content 

3: Start reaching out to the website that is giving links to your competitor.



What is Search Volume?

Search volume is the number of searches or queries that people used in search engines like Google. 

For example, if you have a keyword and you want to know how many people are searching. Then you probably want to the search volume. 

For this, you need tools like ubbersuggest, Semrush, Ahref, etc. 

These tools will give you some idea about the volume but remember tools are not 100% accurate. These just give you an overview. 

I hope you understand. Now let’s understand.

What is Keyword difficulty?

Keyword difficulty (KD) tells you how hard it ranks in SERP. It’s based on different factors like content quality, Authority of websites (DA), and Page authority (PA).

These two things I check during keyword research I hope you understood.

Best practices for conducting keyword research

Identify your target audience:

Understanding your target audience is the first step in conducting keyword research.

Identify Target Audience

This includes knowing their demographics, interests, and pain points. 

Brainstorm potential keywords:

Create a list of potential keywords your target audience might use to find your content or product.

Keywords list

Use tools like Google Keyword Planner, Ubersuggest, or SEMrush to get keyword ideas. 

Evaluate search intent:

Understand the search intent behind each keyword. Are users looking for information, a product, or a service? This will help you create content that meets the needs of your audience. 

Analyze keyword competition:

Look at the competition for each keyword and evaluate your chances of ranking for it. High-competition keywords might be harder to rank for, so it’s best to focus on keywords with lower competition but still relevant to your audience. 

Monitor keyword performance:

Keep track of how well your selected keywords are performing by monitoring their ranking in search results, website traffic, and conversion rates. This will help you adjust your SEO strategy and optimize your content for better results. 

Use long-tail keywords:

As mentioned before Long-tail keywords are the opportunity keywords. And have lower competition. They are more likely to convert into leads or sales. Try to use long-tail keywords when possible to target specific queries.

How can identifying a target audience help in keyword research?

In simple, you need to find and identify the people that are searching for that keywords. For example, my keyword is SEO checklist. 

Then I should know that actually who the people are that searching for this. 

In my case, these can be SEO experts, bloggers, and content writers. 

This can help you to create or write content better.

How to Use Keywords in Your Content

Some people don’t know how to use keywords properly in the content they are just stuffing keywords and waiting for the results. 

Hey, You are not going to rank. 

Then How can you rank on Google by using proper keywords in content?

First, find LSI keywords

LSI keywords are words and phrases that are similar to other words I mean the same meaning words for example when you type a keyword in Google search you will see the results like this. 

Google Search LSI keywords

Whenever you see the words like above these are called LSI keywords.

So Use them in your content I mean in the:

    • Title

    • Description

    • First 100 words of your content. 

    • In the heading and subheadings 

    • Also in the conclusion.

Here you can see I have researched keywords for this article.

My List for keyword ideas

For example how to do keyword research in just 5 minutes. I have found some LSI keywords like this.

LSI keywords example

And Also I have used the heading and subheading so these are the 5 steps for keyword research.

Pro tip:

  • Use Images
  • Graphics
  • Infographics
  • Charts visuals.
  • Avoid repetitive use of keywords: Avoid using the same keyword multiple times in the same sentence or paragraph. This can be a red flag to search engines that you are trying to manipulate rankings. 
  • Use keyword variations: Use variations of your keywords, including long-tail keywords and phrases, to add variety and relevance to your content.

How long does it take to do keyword research how often should you do it?

You need approximately 5 minutes to 24 hours for keyword research. 

Sometimes it takes hours and even days to do keyword research. When I type this question into Google I saw two matching results.

One said 10 days and the second said 90 minutes. 

So you think about which one is right. 

Hey, remember keyword research is the easiest way according to me. 

You just need to use your mind and some tools for keyword research. 


It depends on the topic that how long it is for research. I think you have understood the 5 minutes (KR).


Bonus Tips

  1. Avoid Keyword Stuffing in Your Content

Keyword stuffing is the practice of overusing keywords in a piece of content, in an attempt to manipulate search engine rankings.

You can see the example here. 

This practice is considered a black hat SEO technique and can result in penalties or even getting banned from search engines. 

To avoid keyword stuffing, follow these guidelines for better optimization: 

  1. Focus on quality content: Instead of focusing on keyword density, focus on creating high-quality, valuable content that satisfies the search intent of your audience. 
  2. Use keywords naturally: Use your primary keyword and related keywords throughout your content, but make sure they are used naturally and not forced into the content. 
  3. Use synonyms and related keywords: Instead of repeating the same keyword over and over, use synonyms and related keywords to add variety and context to your content. 
  4. Write for humans, not search engines: Always remember that your content is ultimately written for your audience, not search engines. Make sure your content is easy to read, informative, and engaging.
