    WOO HOO! We are flying together now. Instead of it being my lesson 8, it is our lesson 8 of the Bootcamp training program with Wealthy Affiliate. My last lesson post (lesson 7) allowed an avenue to write freely with the help of the SiteContent Editor within Wealthy Affiliate’s training program. Remember in (lesson 6) there was a notation: keyword (new word alert, TBA), well this is the training lesson that will give more details about “keywords” in terms of meaning and how to use them.

     

    In my rawest form, I will have to admit that it took me a minute (a lot of puns intended) to grasp an understanding of the keyword concept and its’ research process. By the time I completed about three-quarters of the training, it finally clicked for me. It was like I had awakened from a deep sleep (it had nothing to do with falling asleep). Now at least I’m on first base with an understanding of the keyword concept and the research process (remember I have no experience and yes, I’m still unemployed).

     

    What are keywords?

     

    My understanding is just what was stated in this lesson, “keyword(s), is a word or a phrase that someone types into a search engine.” People use words or phrases to find things they are looking for online. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get such a simple concept, but it is sometimes said that the journey to discovery can be just as rewarding, so I’m going to go with that.

     

    Lesson 8 teaches the importance of keywords in my content (written words) that would go into my blog or website that would allow the search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo and etc.) to find my blog or website. If keywords within my content are used thoughtfully and aimed to help, then Google will rank (new word alert, TBA) my site as a go-to site. Choosing the right words (keywords) or words (keywords) that makeup phrases to go in my content. People type keywords into the search engines to find whatever it is they are looking for, and if the keywords mesh with quality information it then can equate to quality content.

     

    Learning about ranking (new word alert, TBA) and how that process pans out in terms of keyword research is at the forefront of the process.

     

    In this lesson the process consists of:

     

    Keyword research, and an introduction to the Jaaxy (a keyword research tool) within Wealthy Affiliate’s training program. It is more than a research tool, it’s a genius tool in my opinion (I’d have to write a book to describe all of what this tool does). This lesson explains clearly the importance of the Jaaxy tool to the keyword research process and as a Starter (free) membership to have access to its possibilities is priceless, a big thank you to the Jaaxy geniuses! As a beginner, the Jaaxy tool will help with keywords, content, concepts, niches, and ideas.

     

    Write quality content, with the assistance of the SiteContent editor platform and the Jaaxy tool. The creation of great content is not far-fetched to the beginner with no experience. Now we are gaining some traction!

     

    Now we publish (put it on the World Wide Web), all the great content and get ranked (new word alert, TBA) by Google, (quality content and great tools to work with) we should rank fairly well, and we can take that straight to the bank!

     

    Speaking of the bank, good ranking (new word alert, TBA) leads to traffic, (people visiting my website) and this traffic will lead to revenue opportunities. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like a plan to me! This training was definitely knowledge riddled and full of ah-ha moments and to be on the receiving end, is not a bad position at all.

     

    So do we keep going? Of course, we have grown in leaps and bounds! Let’s do it!

      1. Although keywords are important, I believe Google are searching for more relevancy these days. I certainly wouldn’t be keyword stuffing like marketers used to 10 or so years ago. From what I understand, search engines are looking for visitor interest and relevancy in your articles, not just keywords. Like your work!

        • Hello Nigel,

          Thanks for visiting!

          Your insight is valued regarding Google’s intent. I am especially appreciative for your compliment regarding my work (content) on my site and the relevancy that you believe it has. The training I am participating in at Wealthy Affiliate has allowed me to share my training and display it on this platform to those with experience and to the non-experienced (like myself). Both can witness the measure of progress that I’ve made.

          I look forward to learning more about keywords and relevant content that matches Google’s expectations.

          All the best,

      2. Thank you for your post on the importance of keywords on getting ranked by search Engine.This topic seems complicated for beginners .It is very simple when you u get well the meaning of keywords and why it is necessary to use keywords.

        I have been studying keywords topic for one month but still my understanding is low but your post makes easy to me .

        I will come back to this website to read deeply this topic.

        Thank you

          Honestly speaking, I had no idea what a keyword was, and no understanding of their importance regarding content. But, after going through Wealthy Affiliate’s training (lesson 8 of the Bootcamp phase 1) which was comprehensive and simplistic even for my prior level of understanding or lack of understanding. I can say I have a better understanding and can use them appropriately at this stage, but more learning will need to happen to use keywords strategically though.More training and knowledge will be key for that and hopefully Wealthy Affiliate will assist with that too!

          I am looking forward to sharing my training experience, I hope you will learn as much as I hope to (Start from my beginning).

          Thank you,

      3. As stated, keywords are significant for ranking in google and the secret is to find what that sought after phrase is that people type into Google, Bing or Yahoo, or even now Pinterest.  But the key is to make sure that you have a low ratio of competitors so that ranking becomes easier for organic traffic.

        Jaaxy is definitely a great tool for this and is one of the best online.  Other keyword research tools provide different types of information but for me Jaaxy does what I need to and provides many tools to find the right keywords.

        • Hello,

          Thank you for reading my article!

          It makes much sense to me and I am in agreement with you when you
          stated that also what’s key to keyword ranking is to make sure that
          there a “low ratio of competitors so that ranking becomes easier for
          organic traffic.” My experience with Jaxxy the keyword research tool has
          been amazing as you mentioned it helps with getting organic traffic, it
          has also helped me organize the keywords that I’ve searched for by
          creating spreadsheet for keywords and keyword phrases. The Jaxxy keyword research tool has many uses that I have not even scratched the surface with yet! As a newbie training at Wealthy Affiliate I’m learning more about this great tool.

          Thanks for stopping by, come back anytime!
