If you are starting on a new site, then I recommend you target a keyword that has a minimum of 100 to 400 search volumes. Because these keywords are easy to rank for and do not forget to check their SEO difficulty. It should be around 1 to 30.

Most people only see keywords that have high volume, then They think it is beneficial for the site. To put that keyword and they do not realize how much SEO difficulty that keyword has.

But you need to understand your site is new. And, many sites are already ranked on that keyword with high domain authority and, it is easy for them to rank their site.

But for you, it is not easy to rank on a keyword that has high volume and, high SEO difficulty. So first build your domain authority by ranking on that keyword which has a minimum of 100 to 400 search volumes and 1 to 30 SEO difficulty.

If you rank on these keywords, which have low SEO difficulty and medium search volume, your site builds a domain authority. Then you can compete with keywords that have high volume and high SEO difficulty.

Find long-tail keyword

Let’s say you target a keyword that has 1 to 2 words which is a short tail keyword. But the problem with the short tail keywords is that you do not know about what topic and what specific problem your audience has, so you can solve their problem.

If someone will type “digital marketing” then, I do not know what question they have and what information they want. If they search “digital marketing free tools” then I know what they are looking for.

It will give you a deeper understanding and give your audience a good experience with your site when you rank your site on the relevant long-tail keyword.

Sometimes, long-tail keywords do not have much SEO difficulty, which is good for you to rank easily, and second, it is stable for you to rank on a specific topic so if your audience will type those long-tail keywords, they see related content which they want, instead of targeting short-tail keywords which didn’t describe what your audience wants.

Make a list of the primary keyword and secondary keyword

Select a primary targeted keyword that you put in the title and meta description. If your blog is around 1000 words, then make sure that the primary keyword will appear ten times and choose a secondary keyword that will use 4 to 5 times in a 1000 words blog.

It helps the search to understand that you are not only targeting the primary keyword, but you target both a primary keyword and a secondary keyword. This SEO keyword research technique will help you increase your chances of ranking in different keywords.

Do not do keyword stuffing

Back in 2010, people do keyword stuffing and rank on google to get tons of traffic. But if you do that today, then modern search engines will penalize your site and, they catch you easily if you do keyword stuffing.

So don’t do that because it will blacklist your site. Just practice the SEO keyword research tips and update your SEO consistently.
