SEO - Keyphrase Research and Competitive Intelligence


The first step in any search engine optimization effort is to conduct detailed keyphrase research and competitive intelligence. This is a crucial step and is skipped over by many firms, who simply take the word of the client. It is important to remember in keyphrase research that the client is not always right.

The client's input is critical and important, but it is not the end all and be all of keyphrase research. The point of keyphrase research is to discover the keyphrases the client hasn't thought of, and to optimize for those, as well as the client's suggested keyphrases. Typically, a client may only be aware of a small fraction of keyphrases relevant to their business. As the goal of search engine optimization is increased traffic and, presumably, sales, keyphrase research allows us to ascertain additional, high traffic keyphrases which people are actually searching for on the search engines.

But how do we know this? We use a real time database of Internet search engine queries provided by Keyword Discovery. This is the keyphrase research tool of choice by industry experts. This database of real search engine queries allows us to examine keyphrases related to the client's suggested keyphrases, and discover those hidden gems which have high search engine query volume while at the same time have gone largely ignored by your competition.

Don't worry, we are not saying we will only optimize for "long tail" keyphrases for which nobody is searching. We will optimize for the keyphrases you ask us to. But, we will also optimize for additional keyphrases which are likely to generate a large volume of traffic to your site. The keyphrase research provides a useful tool for generating quality search engine traffic to your site in a relatively short time period, while we work on the more difficult terms.

As an example, let us use the term "search engine optimizaton". It is one thing to optimize a site for that term. It is quite another thing to optimize for "search engine optimization austin texas". And quite another thing still to optimize for "search engine marketing firms". So, while a client might come to us with a suggested keyphrase, we will optimize for that keyphrase, as well as others that may have been missed by the client. This results in maximum visibility for your business over the spectrum of search engine queries performed by your potential customers.

Once the keyphrase research is completed, we begin the process of competitive intelligence. We want to discover what your competition is doing, so that we can do it better and beat them. This is a process by which we examine various keyphrases, who is ranking for them, and most importantly why.

We look at a number of factors in our search for the "why". We look at on page optimization factors as well as external factors such as inbound linkage and the nature of those inbound links. Once we are armed with this sort of competitive intelligence, we develop a powerful search engine strategy designed exclusively for your business. In other words, we beat the competition at their own game. We do everything they are doing, plus things that they are not doing, to get you to the top of the heap.
