Golden Rule #2: How to Find High Traffic Keywords

Video Transcript

In this video we’ll be taking a look at the second Golden Rule of Keyword Research, namely - Traffic.

We’ll be covering:

(1) The difference between searches and traffic
(2) We’ll also discuss the Organic Traffic settings in Market Samurai
(3) And finally we’ll look at how to find keywords that have sufficient traffic to be worth targeting

High and low traffic keywords

In every niche, there are many different keyword phrases and every phrase has a value based on how many people use it to access the niche.

Some keywords generate high levels of traffic while other keywords generate low levels of traffic.

For example in the photography niche, more people explore the niche using the keyword “digital photography” than the keyword “digital photography classes”

Zero-in on best keywords

Many people are surprised to learn that in most niches over 90% of all keywords have insignificant levels of traffic and are not really worth spending a lot of time and effort on.

Unfortunately, when a lot of people start their Internet business, they target keywords at random and are then disappointed to find that they receive little or no traffic to their
website.

Using Market Samurai however, youʼll be able to zero in on the minority of keywords in your niche that do have significant levels of traffic.

So letʼs cross over to Market Samurai and take a look at how this works in the real world.

Photography example

In this example, I’ve created a project based on the term ‘photography’.

To analyze the keywords I’ve generated, I just come down here and click the ‘Keyword Analysis’ button.

Turn off filters

Now for the sake of this example, I’m going to turn off Market Samurai’s default Golden Rules filter to make sure none of my initial keywords are automatically filtered out. To do this, I’ll just come up here and select the “No filters” option from this drop down box.

Focus on organic data

In this video weʼll be focusing on the Organic Traffic data section up here , so I’m going to check this checkbox [Total Searches checkbox] and uncheck these two checkboxes [TAComp and SEO Value]

Searches and SEOT

As you can see we now have three columns of data that describe the organic traffic associated with a selection of keywords in the photography niche.

The first column is Searches and this shows the average number of people who search for a particular keyword each day.

I can sort my data from high to low by clicking on the column heading ʻSearchesʼ.

The next column is ʻSEO Trafficʼ which we abbreviate to SEOT. To understand SEO Traffic we first need to clarify the difference between Searches and Traffic.

Breakdown of SERP clicks

Whenever Google displays a page of results relating to a particular keyword, a high percentage of people will choose to explore the #1 ranked website. A smaller percentage of people will choose to explore the #2 ranked website and so on.

The average breakdown of these percentages is as follows:

The number 1 ranked website receives 42% of clicks

The number 2 ranked website receives 12% of clicks

The number 3 ranked website receives 8% of clicks

The number 4 ranked website receives 6% of clicks

The number 5 ranked website receives 5% of clicks

The number 6 ranked website receives 4% of clicks

The number 7 ranked website receives 3% of clicks

And the remaining clicks are shared between all the other sites listed in Google.

Importance of SEOT

What this means is that even if you are the number 1 ranked website in google for a particular keyword, there is a big difference between the number of people who search for a phrase and the number of people who will actually click through and visit your website.

So rather than basing your analysis on search numbers and then being disappointed by the actual traffic you receive, we developed the concept of SEO Traffic which gives you an indication of the maximum daily visitors that the #1 ranked website in Google could potentially receive from each keyword.

Turn off Searches

In fact, because SEOT is a more accurate estimate of actual traffic, Iʼll just go up here and hide the total searches column to make things a little easier.

Trends

The next column weʼll look at today is the Trends data which provides a visual representation of the monthly traffic trends for each keyword.

To see the trend data, just click on the trend graph.

Trends continued

This will open a new window that provides more detailed information relating to the trends associated with your keyword phrase.

Here you can see how interest in your search time fluctuates over time. This is particularly useful for seasonal keywords such as halloween. You can also see specific regions of interest and additional related terms.

OK, let me just close this window and weʼll get back to Market Samurai.

Setting SEOT filter value

Now that weʼve looked at what each of the organic traffic indicators mean, lets take a look at how to identify keywords that have significant levels of traffic and are worth targeting.

The first step is to set a traffic filter. To do this I just click the plus sign next to SEO Traffic and enter a min traffic value.

At Noble Samurai we like to use the value 30. This will filter out any keywords that do not have the potential to deliver at least 30 visitors per day, to the number 1 ranked website in Google.

Sort by SEOT value

Finally if I click on the SEOT heading I can sort my keywords by the amount of traffic they can potentially deliver to my website.

As you can see my keywords are now sorted so that the keywords that have the highest traffic potential are now at the top of my list.

Summary

So just to recap, in this video we took a look at the second golden rule of keyword research - Traffic.

Difference between searches and traffic

We clarified the difference between searches and traffic.

Organic traffic analaysis tools in Market Samurai

Then we examined each of the organic traffic analysis tools in Market Samurai

SEOT = 30

And finally we saw that by setting an SEO traffic filter of 30 you can identify keywords that have the potential to deliver a steady stream of free organic traffic to your website.

    Great job with the videos!

    One thing I think you might address in future videos is the difference between "Broad", "Phrase" and "Exact" matches. Once I learned what each one truly meant it clarified my keyword research greatly.

    Example - "dog training dvd"

    Broad = If you place an ad on Google using this keyword and select "Broad" match, this is the amount of traffic to expect and your ad will show up in ANY search which includes those three words in ANY order (weight TRAINING, Matrix DVD, DOG The Bounty Hunter, etc.)

    Phrase = If you place an ad on Google using this keyword and select "Phrase" match, this is the amount of traffic to expect and your ad will show up in any search with those three words in that order (I want a DOG TRAINING DVD, sell DOG TRAINING DVD for profit, etc.)

    Exact = If you place an ad on Google using this keyword and select "Exact" match, this is the amount of traffic to expect and your ad will show up in ANY search which includes those three word in that order and those three words ONLY (dog traing dvd).

    Phrase and exact matches are much better indicators of the true traffic potential of keywords. Apply the same filters in the video, but examine traffic levels using the Phrase and Exact match settings.

    If I am wrong about this, someone please let me know...loudly! Thanks.

    Thanks for this video. It's well done and very useful for those new to MS. However, stating that 80 is a good SEOT value needs some context. How does this relate to "Match Type"? I generally never pay attention to "Broad Match". Am I moving too quickly to Phrase or Exact match?

    Couldn't you find the same keywords by just setting the match type to 'exact' and only looking at terms where the monthly search rate exceeds 360?

    November 14th, 2009 at 7:35 am

    Hey Anthony,
    Great teaching. The series just gets better and better.
    The thing that struck me on the dog example was that the highest ranked keyword phrase was actually a sentence. Does this mean that long tail key words are actually turning into sentences as people begin to 'talk' to Google rather than trying to search for a word in Google. Is Google becoming more like a help guide that you talk to rather than a place where you search for information. If I'm right it will make key word research more conversational and intuitive than sterile and mechanical in nature

    Hi there, great post. The traffic a certain keyword gets is vital in your marketing. It can make or break your marketing efforts. I like to aim at a range of between 30 to 100 daily searches. I find anything above 100 tends to carry a lot of competition and is extra hard to rank for Google's first place. Thanks for the great info. Ricardo from http://WinningTheAffiliateGame.com

    Dear Dr Anthony,

    I would like to thank you greatly for your unbelievable advice. Without the 30DC and yourselves at Noble Samurai, I wouldn't have a clue about keywords.

    Friends and people I know who are starting web businesses have made this error time and time again. They are crucial. I have been changing my keywords almost on a weekly basis to best suit my site. I believe without Market Samurai we would have given up on our project.

    Unlike doing a blog, I had an idea of creating a brand new social network for musicians and music lovers. I discovered the 30 DC a few weeks into the project when things were not going well, but now we are a week away from launching!

    I want to put banners, a little testimonial, anything on my site that links back to you guys (FREE ofcourse!) because without your assistance Id be a lost soul in this big wide internet world.

    www.MeLoveMusic.com is set for official launch on 23.11.2009 and I am so grateful for all the lessons you have taught.

    Many thanks

    Kind Regards

  36. Frank Thomas Says:

    I am concerned over one point though. All searches are done on the 'broad' search counts within this example. There is some dabbling into phrase to broad % but I really believe that you can cut to the chase by going directly to 'exact' competition. This will offer you your true counts to your keywords.

  37. Joy Says:

  38. Igor Says:
    November 26th, 2009 at 12:16 am

    I must agree with couple of posts above regarding keyword match broad, phrase and exact.

    For example one of my keywords has:

    Broad: 559 SEOT and 45% PBR,
    Phrase: 249 SEOT and 45% PBR
    Exact: 4 SEOT and 45% PBR

    Question to you Anthony do you think its wise to market a product in broad match (where u might get broad search hits to your site instead of phrase or exact match (as Zach in 1st post explained).

    Example - "dog training dvd"

    Broad = If you place an ad on Google using this keyword and select "Broad" match, this is the amount of traffic to expect and your ad will show up in ANY search which includes those three words in ANY order (weight TRAINING, Matrix DVD)

    Which is something we don't want to do, as we only need to sell it to those who are actually searching for only those words "dog training dvd"

    Then would it be wise to target it:
    Exact only, and instead of using SEOT 80, maybe using SEOT 40?

    Of everything I've read and studied on Keywords, nobody goes this deep and at the same time makes it understandable. Each video gets better and better. Everybody makes it seem that you have to use multiple keyword research tools and to me, Market Samurai seems to be the whole package.

    Im ranked number one on page one of google for the last year for my current keywords, however what I didnt realize and what your software brought to my attention is the average visitors per day for the keywords I was using was like 10 people. No wonder why Im starving for business!

    Thanks, I hope these small changes make a difference in my bottom line. If they do I will no doubt be buying the full version of Marketing Samurai and telling others about it as well.

    Keep up the great work!

    Hi Guys,

    Have been using MS for a good 9 months now. However I was never able to achieve anywhere near the amount of traffic MS estimated on an 'Exact Match' keyword in a #1 or #2 position.

    It has recently come to my attention that the Google Adwords tool which as I understand MS gets the keyword data from, is pulling search results from their search network as well. Basically this makes the figures grossly inaccurate. People aiming for #1 positions and expecting traffic anywhere near what is predicted in Google Adwords tool or MS with 'exact match' on are going to be sorely disappointed. See this post for more information - http://www.davidnaylor.co.uk/why-the-google-adwords-keyword-tool-shouldnt-be-used-for-seo-a-case-study.html

    You can try Google's Search Based Keyword Tool, which seams to give much more accurate results, however it will hide certain high level keywords.

    Is there any other source we can use and in turn MS use, as currently the search traffic numbers are next to useless,

  48. bizboost Says:
    August 17th, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    For those who are concerned with the use of BROAD MATCH....

    I agree it doesn't show the most precise results, HOWEVER, I think a benefit of this is that, if your analytics program can determine exact phrase the visitor uses, you can learn some unique, new, or missed, kewyord phrases for which you can then develop articles, etc, for which to optimize.

    Anyone else see the value in that?

  49. Amada Says:
    October 29th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    I have question here, I am having very low PBR say - 5 percent. However for the same phrase the excat match in SEOT is high. Under what scenario is this possible. I tried the permutation combination & also did google keywords recommendation to get more keywords to the phrase but nothing significant.

    re-iterating my question -for a given phrase in broad search the PBR is low i - but then for the same phrase the excat is high. What does that mean

  50. Arne Says:
    January 9th, 2011 at 1:19 am

    Hi, one question regarding:

    \"the difference between searches and traffic\"

    I do not fully understand: Isn\'t it that these people klicking on position 2, 3, 4... 7 and so on haven\'t clicked already on the position #1?

    That\'s what I always do: I click on #1, #2 and #3 - then look at the websites. If I do not find what I was looking for, I may continue with 4, 5... or refine my search. So obviously yes, I usually always click the first result, but I am also the same person clicking on the other results.

    So how does this fit with the percentages given above:

    The average breakdown of these percentages:
    The number 1 ranked website receives 42% of clicks
    The number 2 ranked website receives 12% of clicks
    The number 3 ranked website receives 8% of clicks
    The number 4 ranked website receives 6% of clicks
    The number 5 ranked website receives 5% of clicks
    The number 6 ranked website receives 4% of clicks
    The number 7 ranked website receives 3% of clicks
    ...

    Isn\'t it that you have almost 100% of the users click result #1 and then of these almost 100% there is a lower percentage clicking also at result #2 and so on?

    Please let me know - I am really interested. Also maybe where you got these numbers from.

    Thank you so much for your training - this is really worth a lot! You do explain it so excellent. I really like the way you do it and that everywhere I can find the transcript and so forth. Thank you so much. I am looking forward to your answer - to get this part also right.

    Thanks, Arne

I have a question though about the percentage traffic each website in the search get. You mentioned the remaining which is 20% goes to the remaining website in the search result but forgetting that certain percentage goes to Google Adword ads so what is the percentage that goes to Google adword.Thanks.

    Hi There,
    I find it extremly hard to find my nich or micronich. Either the SEOT is low and PBR is low or the SEOC is high How much SEOT and PBR should be min? The number of SEOC is high but weak how do I make up my mind what is better?
    Thanks so much

  58. Dr. Anthony Says:
    August 18th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    @Barbara RE: Microniches

    If you cannot find keywords in the niche try using slightly lower SEOT or slightly higher SEOC (use the same PBR).

    If the SEOC is higher but the SEO Competition module shows that the competition is weak then it should still be possible to rank well.

  59. Dr. Anthony Says:

    I agree with Zach - the Phrase to Broad needs to be explained better. I don't understand how it is given as a percentage. Does 55% mean 55% of the time it's used it's meant as an exact phrase out of all the times it's entered in broad-match searches?

    anyway, I know the difference between phrase, broad and exact pair aThis case.

    Thanks for everything

    Waiting for your response.

    @Katie - sorry for the confusion, it's just an underlined word, not meant to be a link!

    @Oscar - if you have a specific question just click the "Support" tab on the left edge of your browser and contact our support team! Unfortunately we can't monitor all the dojo comments as regularly.

    We will work on a Knowledge Base article which better explains the PBR, which should help until we're able to update the training videos.

    Market Samurai is a great tool for several reasons, it addresses so many aspects of keyword research and competition analysis. In all that the tool offers it is cost effective in the long run and most importantly the customer service and follow up has been superb. I recommend it every chance I get. Keep up the good work guys!

    If the support is so great why have none of the questions here been dealt with, other than for an affiliate sales program and an update on a button?

    Hi IF - it's true we have not always paid close attention to these comment threads, though we're trying to do better.

    Many times, if it's a technical question, we simply respond via Email, as it's usually too difficult to try and handle these things in a forum like this which is not intended for that kind of conversation. Questions and clarifications about the videos we try to answer here.

    All questions submitted to our support desk - via the website at http://www.noblesamurai.com/support/ or directly in Email - get answers within 24-48 hours.

    These videos don't give any indication of what the "sweet spot" (if there is such a thing) for SEOT. My highest SEOT word is 7595, my lowest is 112. But even if I went w/my highest ranked word, is 7595 enough traffic for the very broad term "kindness"?

    So thinking in terms of indexing, clearly 7595 SEOT keyword is better than 112 SEOT but can you give parameters of what is considered healthy traffic? Thanks!

  75. Dr. Anthony Says:

    @Tomoko

    There isn't really a "sweet spot" for keyword traffic - what we're always looking for with the Golden Rules is to find keywords that combine all four elements: commerciality, relevance, competition and traffic.

    Of course in general higher traffic is better, but don't forget to consider the other factors - and any keyword that passes all four Golden Rule filters is worth considering, even if the SEOT value is 112.

    As usual great job Anthony! I thought Zach Wyrick's comment no 1 very interesting here. The guys at Bring The Fresh use Market Samurai Exact Match feature. It was through the training at BTF that I found MS. Um - how can I say it positively? They could learn a lot about presentation and clarity from you. Your presentations are the best to be found anywhere. Thank you and well done.

    Finally I am getting somewhere. As I follow the tutorial step by step to find relevant words and then check for traffic I am understanding the process much better.

    Thank you Dr Anthony

    The Dojo is awesome, I have learned a lot of useful information. The format of video and text is great since sometimes its nice to just be able to go back to the text and recap an earlier lesson.

    Thanks again

    is there any chance to filter keywords like this
    imagine i get the keyword "lose weight fast" that has 2000 views per month (data not real)
    is there anyway to filter: if i search "lose weight fast" (with the "") it has less than 20000 results

    Anthony, quick question:

    You say: At Noble Samurai we like to use the value 50. This will filter out any keywords that do not have the potential to deliver at least 50 visitors per day, to the number 1 ranked website in Google.

    The lessons says: So rather than basing your analysis on search numbers and then being disappointed by the actual traffic you receive, we developed the concept of SEO Traffic which gives you an indication of the maximum daily visitors that the #1 ranked website in Google could potentially receive from each keyword.

    Yet in the actual software it says (SEOT Tooltip) The maximun potential MONTHLY clicks that a #1 ranked site for this keyword term could potentially achieve.

    So which one is it? :)

  86. Dr. Anthony Says:
    March 19th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    @Fabian - that's affected by the dropdown box which allows you to select "Daily", "Weekly" or "Monthly" figures for traffic-related metrics - the default is Daily so that's how we show it in our tutorials. Hope this helps!

    I hav been foundering for two months with a new website, and have burned out two hosts before deciding, regretfully, to go with wordpress.com. I so wish I had found you guys before I had wasted so much time and Im sure a lot of support folks wish that, too. This info on SEO's and keywords is priceless; I had no idea how I was going to muddle through it all.
