Lesson 8 – Bootcamp Phase 1:
Understanding the Keyword Research Process:
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!
