Key words are pillar of SEO. Without them even the best positioning strategy would fail. There are plenty of websites, using plenty of key words and one might think that they are useless as every company in his sector is already using the same ones. Fortunately, there is a solution. It is key words research, which you can do using completely free tool – Google Trends.

Find your dream customer

In order to reach our target audience and introduce our product to them we need to have an idea who they are. We need to create Buyer Persona. Buyer Persona is fictional representation of your ideal customer. We create it by researching market, customers behavior and motives that leads to purchase. We should include demographic and geographic data depending on market we are targeting. 

When our Buyer Persona is ready, we can start using Google Trends and find out what kind of key words are relevant. Let´s say that our company sells hiking shoes in Arizona. In this case we would look for key words related to hiking, outdoors and shoes, that are recently most popular in Arizona. We gather all of them and then have a look at our competition. Which one are they using, is there any that they are missing, can we use any that will give us advantage over them? Seize every opportunity that exist in your sector.

Delivering the answers

While analyzing Google Trends we can see what kind of questions are most commonly asked about given topic. Then on our company website we can implement an FAQ or blog posts which will answer all these questions in a way that gives us chance to appear in Google Snippets, boosting our traffic and positioning significantly. We can also develop some valuable key words for our website, based on observation of the most common question customers may have.
