As a blogger, if you don’t know what keyword research is and how to do keyword research, you may have a lot of problems with your blogging career.
Moreover, I have already written an article explaining to you why keyword research is important.
However, many have asked me via email and comment, “Grandpa, how do you do keyword research for your article?”
So, in today’s article, I will explain to you, the rules and process of doing my keyword research.
What is keyword research? How to do keyword research
Look, friends, today’s online blogging platform is like a kind of business.
And, thousands of people are starting blogging on the same topic or niche.
This is creating a lot of competition among every blogger.
Because, nowadays, if you search Google for any keyword, question, topic or problem, Google gives you many good solutions on its first page.
However, as many people publish answers or solutions to the same question on their blogs, Google or other search engines have a lot of choice of information.
So, Google and other search engines, the best, SEO friendly, user friendly, high quality content blogs or websites with its top 10 results (Top 10 Results).
Content or blogs with low quality, poor SEO optimization are shown on the second page.
As a result, only blogs or websites on the front page receive traffic or visitors from Google and other search engines.
So, if your blog is not getting traffic and visitors from Google or other search engines, then you may not be writing good quality articles.
Moreover, even if you don’t use proper SEO optimization techniques in your articles, it becomes difficult to get traffic from search engines.
But, if you are writing good quality articles and at the same time with good SEO optimizations you are not getting traffic from search engines, then the reason may be “not doing keyword research”.
If you are writing an article without any knowledge about “what is keyword research” and how to do keyword research, then in terms of SEO, this is your biggest mistake.
What is keyword research? To answer this question, you first need to know what “keywords mean”.
What does keyword mean? (What Is Keyword)
In the case of blogging, keywords are a way for Google and other search engines to understand and know about your blog and the articles written on the blog.
And, depending on the targeted keyword of your article, search engines send the right traffic or visitors to your blog.
What do we write when we search for a problem or topic in Google search?
“How do I make money online?”, “What does keyword research mean”, “Which mobile way?”
And you know, these kinds of “words” or “sentences” written in Google search are called keywords.
Any keyword can be a word or a sentence of more than one word.
For example, “online income” and “online income tricks in Bangla” are both keywords.
However, keywords with more than two words can be called “key phrases”.
Isn’t that right?
These can be short words or borough sentences.
Most “keywords” but a sentence of 3 to 4 words.
To put it more simply, a keyword is a complete word or phrase that means “what you are searching for by typing in Google search, bing search or yahoo search engine”.
If you are talking about this article, then I have written an article targeting the keywords “Keyword Research Key”, “Keywords Key”, “SEO”, “blog traffic”, “Keyword Research Rules”.
So, if someone searches Google with my targeted keywords, then Google will definitely show my blog or article in its search results.
Visitors are searching more on Google (search engine) by typing which keywords, and which keywords are targeted in your article, these two keywords should match if you want to get a lot of traffic or visitors from the search engine.
Now, the question is “How do you know which keywords people are searching for more on Google?”.
The answer is “through keyword research”.
What does keyword research mean? (What Is Keyword Research)
Keyword research is an important and important part of seo (search engine optimization), where the most searched keywords and key phrases in popular and search engines are found.
Moreover, with this process we can find new topics and key phrases for blog articles, profitable and people interested.
The first step to optimize any article for “search engine” is keyword research.
In this way, you will be able to find better and more searched keywords on Google.
And, by targeting profitable keywords by researching and writing articles, you can get more visitors from Google and other search engines.
Why is it important to do keyword research?
First of all, it is important to do this process to find the keywords that are more profitable and more searched in Google search.
Second, you can find out how much Google search is being done on the topic you are writing about, whether people are searching on Google about the article you are writing about, or how much, even if they are searching.
Remember, if you are writing an article targeting the keyword, if it is less than 100 searches per month, then there will be no benefit in writing that article.
You will find much less traffic or visitors in the article written with that keyword.
So, it is often seen that bloggers write very good quality content, and even then their blogs are not getting traffic from search engines at all.
The only reason for this, however, is “writing articles without keyword research”.
Although you are writing a good article and the article has done a lot of good SEO optimization, but maybe your targeted keywords are not searched at all in Google search.
You may be wondering why the blog is not getting traffic and visitors even after doing everything right.
So, before writing a blog article, the purpose of keyword research is to target the keyword that you write the article, so that a good number of searches per month in Google search.
The more (500) your targeted keyword will be searched in Google search, the more traffic or visitors will come to your article.
Lastly, keep in mind that the key to success in your blogging career is to write articles targeting keywords that are more popular and more searched.
Which I am doing myself.
And, such profitable keywords can only be extracted using the process of “keyword research”.

And, of course, every professional blogger uses this process.
However, there are other means by which we can use it to find out which key phrases are most profitable and most searched on Google.
a. Google auto suggest
When we type a word or keyword into Google search, Google suggests many other sentences or key phrases associated with that keyword or word.
For example, after I typed the keyword “from mobile” above, Google automatically showed me many more sentences, questions or key phrases related to that keyword.
And, of course, if I write an article targeting these kinds of auto suggested key phrases shown by Google, then my blog will have a chance to get a lot of traffic and visitors from Google search.
Because, Google shows these types of auto suggest key phrases only when people type those sentences or keywords and do a lot of search on Google.
This means that if any sentence, word, question or key phrase is searched extensively on Google, Google shows them in its auto suggested keyword.
So, if you write an article with this kind of key phrase, you will definitely get traffic from Google.
Moreover, using the google keyword planner tool, you can know the exact search volume of key phrases.
