We are building her keyword, seed list, we’ve got it all together. We’ve got it categorized documented and now we’re going to pull things full circle, we’re going to align them to business goals because Amy. It is not enough to just spend this time searching finding all these keywords: jotting them down, categorizing them if they’re not aligned to goes, you really want to achieve or website goals, and the other reason you want to do.

This is also because you want to identify any opportunities or gaps for keywords that you need to maybe include in some of your content right. That makes sense absolutely now. I did ask you to do a little bit of prep before you came so. Could you maybe give me an idea of some of your business goals sure so my monthly Instagram goal is to increase my followers by 100. Okay and I’m wanting to have four new coaching clients per month, okay for people signing on for packages and then increase my email list by 10.

New email addresses a month fantastic now, the first place I would go if I was looking to align with the goal of increasing Instagram followers is in your seed list, anything related to social media. Okay right, so let’s go back here. Competitor keywords: remember: when we search for hashtags right go to the hashtags, that you’ve got here right and even narrow it down to Instagram, specifically right.

If your goal is to increase your number of Instagram followers, then let’s focus on Instagram. You could search for ways to gain Instagram followers. I’ll bet, there’s a little bit of information out. There sure that’s a great idea cool, let’s move on to the next one: okay, okay! So for this bowl it’s clearly a business-related goal, so we definitely want to look at the business and industry keywords that are in your seedless right, we’re going to definitely find something there, but your target audience keyword list is really where we’re going to find the gold.

So go back to that one! Let’s go here, we’re going to look through all the keywords that we found around target audience, because it’s about gaining new clients right right, so we want to know what they were searching for. So I would look for words. Maybe that are associated with a sense of urgency, so finally Aimee we’re going to tackle the third goal that you’ve got here, which is increased email subscribers by 10 per month.

Yep awesome, it’s clearly a business goal. Let’s look at the business and industry keywords, kind of search through those what we have okay, let’s look at some target audience keywords: nothing’s, really standing out that matches up. You know this is a good one, because this means our strategy’s working because we’ve kind of identified a gap. I think right, I’m not really finding anything related to email subscriptions or how to do it or any of that in the seed list that we’ve built.

So far, okay, that’s alright! It just means this is an opportunity, a little bit of homework right um. Clearly this is a goal for you. I know I’m sure, that’s what you want to hear tiny bit, but it’s really just means. Go back maybe find some keywords that are related to people subscribing. You know growing subscribers increasing subscribers things like that. Just just see, if there’s anything and anything that we’ve done before just kind of rego through that process, see if any keywords related to this goal come up, because obviously you want to incorporate them right.

So, with everything ties together, you see in the big picture. Aimee. Absolutely that is so helpful. I’m so excited all right. Now we’re going to recap, because we’ve done a whole lot. Today, we’ve covered a bunch, so we went through some discovery and built you a keyword, seed list, awesome split it up into three categories: business and industry.

So really, it all starts with the domains of the foundation, because it’s going to be in your email address. It’s going to be the URL for your website, part of your social media. Yes, part of the social media handle once you get there so with the domain name, you want to keep it short and we like to say the radio tested GoDaddy.

If you heard it on the radio when you’re driving home, would you remember it when it’s time to go search for it right and you have to make sure you get it very quickly? A lot of people have a lot of ideas and they’re buying domains. Every day make sure yeah, I’m sure you get yours right away all right so now that you’ve got this domain name you’ll want to get the email address reason being. Is I’m not going to put poppy Joppy 1717 at whatever com on my business cards? No, you! Don’t want to do that.

A big part of this is branding once you get the domain name you’re going to be sending a lot of emails, so you’re going to want to pick a good domain name and that email is really what starts to push it quickly. For you all right so now the email and the domain are up and running. We need the website up and running. This is your window to the world. This is what everyone’s going to see when they look you up, so it needs to be attractive and it needs to be mobile-friendly and then from there.

You can get into more specifics for what your business needs right. So, as far as the features go, this is the first time you’re standing up. This website is the first time that it’s it’s on its legs, get the minimum stuff that you need and then out on the bells and whistles later you’re going to need payment processing. Are you going to need people to set appointments on their stuff like that right and, as you consider these features, can you do it yourself, or are you going to hire a pro to do those things for you yeah, it’s going to be an ongoing cost, so Try to plan for the future as best you can consider your initial cost versus your maintenance costs.

So after you get that website up and running after you get your domain name, it’s just going to be maintenance. It’s just going to be chill enough. It’s a lot like real estate, actually right, there’s that down payment to first get into it higher and then from there you’re renting is like ongoing maintenance, cost right and be realistic. It’s you know, do some research, it’s not going to be too high.

It’s not going to be too low, it’s going to be somewhere in the middle time for the future. It’s going to be around for a long time. I’m Joplin I’m Eric thanks for stopping by you.

Getting Started with Google’s Keyword Planner

Planner, hello, everyone, my name is Garth O’Brien. I run the global search engine optimization program for GoDaddy. I’ve been doing SEO since 2002. I’ve done SEO for various companies, Chevron, IKEA, USA, hallmark Xbox Windows Phone been around the block and keyword.

Planner is a tool that I use pretty much every day. So, let’s get right to it now on the keyword. Planner homepage always use the call to action. Big blue button says go to keyword planner. This is going to take you to a screen and you’re going to want to select find new keywords. Now they’ve changed things up over the last year. You really can only put three keywords here. First, before you get started and what you want to do is you want to choose keywords that are closely related, so WordPress hosting hosting for WordPress WordPress websites hosting not WordPress, plugins, WordPress themes, WordPress hosting, because otherwise you won’t get good results.

The more we find. Those first three keywords are the better suggestions. Google Keyword planner is going to give you my average monthly search volume for a couple of your phrases that you put in so for us they gave us a range of 1,000 10,000 people a month are searching for WordPress hosting and 100 to a thousand. People are looking for WordPress website hosting below the terms that we specifically searched on are the suggested ideas Google’s going to give you based on various activities.

Probably people like me, searching in the past and their own search algorithm. I like to use the adding filter, not the exclude ideas, but the keyword text. This is going to give you the option to narrow it down even further, because Google is going to add you add suggestions like web hosting VPS hosting. That’s not what I want to talk about. I’m looking at WordPress hosting so I’ll, specifically put in just WordPress, hit, apply and now you’ll notice.

The ideas of the returning to you has to have the word WordPress in it, and I would go back, remove WordPress and put in hosting or put in WordPress hosting. Then I can get all the ways. People look for WordPress hosting, you know best WordPress hosting cheap WordPress hosting how to use WordPress hosting. This is going to give you a good, close-knit keyword grouping for the single page that you want to apply those keywords set to, and at that point, once you have narrowed down that nice list, you would select download keyword, ideas and Google will present you with a Excel file, that’s going to export all the keywords that they came back and for a must for us.

That is quite a few 553 keywords at that point. You have to start doing rolling up your sleeves and doing some homework by opening up that file and now sifting through and sorting those keywords wait. So what do you mean by the like ranges? They’re, assuming that one thousand ten thousand visitors fewer than 100 yeah Google used to give you a ballpark exact number like WordPress hosting 5500 people, look for this every month.

Well, they kind of limited that to only people that are paying enough through Google Adwords you’re, not paying you’re using their paid search now, you’re stuck with ranges. What I found is the low number on that range is way more accurate than the high number on that range. Okay, guys that was so much wonderful information thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for tuning in I’m Darlene, I’m Garth O’Brian see you later.
