How To Find Keywords For A Website

How to Find Keywords for a Website ?

If your looking to write a post or a review online you will be faced with a lot of competition and if you don’t know how to utilize Keywords then your post and website will never be visited.

So we should be asking this question; How to find keywords for my website ? I am happy to tell you it’s not a difficult procedure and today I am going to show you how to kind Keywords for your website!

firstly you will know what topic you wish to write about so for an example we need to come up with one. I will use an example of how to find the best keywords on keyword research tools as this will give you the best idea in my opinion.

As with anything we need to start with a good foundation so in order to do that I will look to see what the most popular phrases are in this field. I will start off by typing in “what are the best keyword research tools”

As you can see from just typing this phrase into the Google instant search bar I automatically can see what the top four search phrases people are using with these keywords.  I now have a base phrase I can build on so the next step would be to a keyword research platform in order to analyse the results abit more.

I use a platform called Jaaxy which has everything I need to create quality keywords.

Here I have typed the keyword phrase I sued in Google and typed it into my Jaaxy search bar after logging in:

After a few seconds a list of all relevant keywords will appear with the data you need to identify good keywords. As you can see the list is quite extensive so I will now identify which phrases are the most promising so I can add them to a saved list. I can do this by ticking the box to the left and choosing the save list button which I will show you shortly.

If we look at the top phrase I can see that is a good phrase to use in my post so I will save it to my list.

How Can I tell?

The way I identify this is by looking at the date

on average it has 270 searches with this phrase a month

If I make it onto page 1 of google I will on average 46 visits ( Traffic)

The QSR (quoted search results) tells me the number of competing websites using this exact phrase. Ideally you want this to be lower the better anything over 400 don’t touch but I try and get something under 200/300 normally.

the KQI (Keyword qualtiy Indicator) usesa traffic light approach as a primary indicator if the phrase is a good one.

As you can see from the pink arrow where it highlights the difference between a good phrase to a poor one as the poor one is red. Normal would be Amber. look at the difference in the QSR figures for the comparing phrases!

The next column is SEO which combines all the above to give an indicator score. The higher it is the more chance you have of getting ranked within Google search. The last column gives you the availability of domains related to this search.

For this example I will choose the top 2 and 7th  phrase and will add them to my list (click photo to enlarge) :keyword search list

It is okay to use low scoring phrases as they will grow and your ranking will grow with them. If you see <10 this just means under 10 a month.

When you are researching the best way on how to find keywords for a website article it is always best to research 10 phrases to give you a better level of results.

Once I have some main phrases with good scores I will want to check to see if there are any more I could use. I use Yahoo Answers to see what people are typing in for this. You can visit yahoo answers here: www.yahoo.com 

Another good website to use of your looking for a “how to” phrase is ehow.com



There are two buttons by the search bar on yahoo answers, one is purple titled answers and the other is blue for web search. Type in your phrase and press the purple button:


So I have now entered my phrase and pressed the purple button and one phrase that jumps out is the same question so I will go back to Jaaxy  and search this phrase that is circled in red, you can click the photo to enlarge. As you can see on the first page it has 3 or 4 searches.


I’m very happy to use this phrase and I have added it to my saved list. I will now have to decide on what is the best phrase to use.



Just by taking out “for SEO” from my original Phrase I have the same search results more or less with a more refined title for my post and I now know how to find  keywords for my website!

It’s taken me quite a while to grasp keywords and it wasn’t until I cam across a training platform called Wealthy Affiliate that everything really started to click in to place as the training there is second to none. you can read my review here if you wanted to know more: Review

With regards to the Keyword search platform I use I have not worked better with anything else. I have only shown you a small piece of what Jaaxy can be used for so if you want to know more about it checkout my review here: Jaaxy 


I hope you have enjoyed me showing you a little insight on how you can search for the best keywords and don’t forget this is just an example and you can use this as a guide for any article or any topic!

  1. I find that doing keyword research can be a bit addicting.

    Once you find a theme you can manipulate it to fit almost any topic you want and spend hours coming up with great low-hanging fruit keywords that offer very little competition.

    For example: “how to travel in India” You can simply change the country to any one that you want.

    There are many phrases like “how to choose…” or “the best…..” and “what is the best…”

    I have friends who have been blogging a bit longer than me and were struggling to come up with keyword ideas until I turned them on this this method.

    Of course, the alphabet soup method is where you should start to come up with themes inside your niche. Then simply manipulate them inside your keyword tool like Jaaxy and the whole gig gets even easier.

    It’s nice to see that great minds really do think a like. I can tell your having successful keyword hunting trips!

    I do have one question, the free keyword tool on WA vs. Jaaxy what are the biggest differences? Is Jaaxy worth the investment?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Justin

      I agree you could spend hours looking searching keywords but that’s why I like the saved lists you can create on Jaaxy so you then can compare all your favourite searches.

      As you mentioned: phrases like “how to choose…” or “the best…..” and “what is the best…”

      are very common so you have to get creative to get noticed and that is exactly where alphabet soup comes into it for those keyword hunting trips! Thank you for the encouragement

      I do like the WA keyword tool however Jaaxy is more in depth in my opinion with other resources you can use on the same platform. what about yourself?


  2. Thanks for the detailed post about searching for the right keywords. It was very insightful and helpful. I especially appreciated your breakdown of how to read the data that Jaaxy displays. i.e. Avg vs Traffic vs QSR vs KQI vs SEO

    Do you the Google Keyword Planner as well? If yes – How would you compare it to Jaaxy?

    I have a few questions about Jaaxy which I hope you don’t mind me asking:
    1) You mentioned that the higher the SEO score, the better – What is the highest score that you can get here? If this shows a score about about 90, does this mean that there is a 90% chance you’d show up on the first page on Google?

    2) I’ve seen < 10 in quite a few of the searches I've tried. Would you recommend staying away from scores that are < 10?

    3) Sometimes I notice that the Google instant search does not show 'suggestions' – What's the secret to this?

    4) How do you use ehow.com? The same way you used Yahoo as an example?


    1. HI Marco

      I actually do use the Google keyword planner initially however I prefer Jaaxy as I think it gives you better results and more visually open with the traffic light system they use.

      The SEO score is out of 100 so yes the higher the score the better in that column.

      <10 just means there are less than 10 searches a month, this could mean it's a fairly new phrase however it is OK to use them occasionally as all keyword phrases were <10 at one point so it could build.

      I read an article in July about Google scrapping instant search for a better system more in line with mobiles as 50% of searches are done this way so that maybe the reason it never showed them.

      eHow gives you practical solutions to the problems, you just have to type your specific problem in the search bar or look through the various topics. I lke it as its quite visual with lots of images on some articles.

      hope this helps and thank you you for your comments

      best wishes

  3. Jaaxy looks like the complete package and gives you everything you require for your keywords.

    I particularly like the alphabet soup system!
