Research & Keywords

Data Driven Research – Keywords, Phrases, Locations & More

Every WebDSE project starts with research. Identifying your competitors and their levels of success online is a huge first step. We also focus on locating the keywords your target audience is using to search for products or services. It is a crucial step of any optimization process.

To generate a high return on investment, you have to reach the right audience. We help you choose the best keywords based on search frequency and relevance to your website. Carefully targeting your site, your SEO efforts and any online campaign from the start will lead to greater success in the future.


A Targeted Campaign

All the traffic in the world won’t mean a thing if your visitors don’t convert to customers. The best keyword research isn’t about identifying the terms and phrases that have the highest search volume, it’s about locating and targeting your potential customers and clients. It is always tempting to go for high-volume keywords, however, the right long-tail terms can provide a much higher return for your time & money.

Keyword Difficulty & Persistence

While it may be easy to rank for some keywords, others might require a long-term approach. Assessing keyword difficulty is an integral part of our SEO strategy as it can define the time needed to start seeing the rankings you want and need. The right strategy, proper execution and a fair amount of persistence will pay off in the end for those big keywords. In the shorter term, we also want to focus on those other opportunities that may provide a better return in smaller time frame.

Understanding Various Types of Keywords & Reports
