A keyword is a single word, several words or a phrase that is relevant to the contents of a website and can affect a website ranking. In most cases, keywords partially or completely match search queries that users enter when they search for information.
You need to collect a keyword pool to focus on when targeting your website to get conversions. Keywords must be relevant to what a visitor sees on your webpages.
Before you get started with the keyword research, outline the keyword structure, make up a preliminary list of webpages your project or website will include. After that, research your target audience to figure out the ways and options they may use to search for information. Initially, you need to determine the information you want to deliver to your audience. How the content created with the keywords you collected will respond to the questions your audience asks when they search for the information?
