The First Step To Local Keyword Research

Before you start digging in to the keyword research tools and making a list of keywords for your business, there’s something you need to do first. This video shows you what it is…

The Most Accurate Local Keyword Tool on the Planet

One of my clients has a good size Google AdWords campaign for his business running in a few major cities. I don’t want to give away confidential information here, so for this example, let’s say one of the services he offers sword fighting classes in Miami.

In Adwords, you get an enormous amount of data about your campaign…more than most people know what to do with! One of the more interesting and helpful bits of data you can get is the exact search terms people have typed into Google that resulted in one or more of your ads being displayed.

The other day I was reviewing the list of search terms for this campaign and noticed there were a number of searches for “ninja sword fighting classes coral gables” and “ninja sword fighting classes coral gables fl” (FYI – Coral Gables is a suburb of Miami).

Go the a keyword research tool, like the free one from Google, and they’ll tell you that no one is typing the keyword+city combination, ninja sword fighting classes coral gables” into Google each month. However, because of the data available in our AdWords campaign we now know there are actually a few hundred searches per month centered around that keyword+city combination.

There is no other way that we could have discovered this information.

And it’s key information that’s going to have a very meaningful impact on this company. Because now that we know there’s a decent amount of traffic centered around “ninja sword fighting classes coral gables”, we’ve started to do some website optimization around that keyword to get his website ranked at the top of the organic search engine rankings.

Most of his competitors don’t have this information, which means there’s not much competition for “ninja sword fighting classes coral gables” so…getting to the top of Google and capturing the majority of traffic for that term should not be terribly difficult!

It doesn’t get much more important than keyword research when it comes to online marketing. Find the right keywords and you position yourself for success. Guess or do a bad job at keyword research and your search marketing efforts are pretty much doomed to failure.

While keyword research tools are great, they don’t give you the whole story.

Data from a Google AdWords campaign gives you more accurate keyword data which gives you a competitive advantage over those who don’t have that data (ie. most, if not all, of your competitors).

And for a local business, using that data to find a niche you can exploit to get 50, 100 or more visitors to your site each month can have a very meaningful impact on your bottom line.
