So this morning I was listening to a Podcast on keyword research that I found while consuming a sh*t load of cool content on Pat Flynn’s website.
Pat did an interview with the creator (Spencer Haws) of one of my favorite keyword software tools Long Tail Pro, which if you have read some of my more recent post you will see that I kinda like the tool (just a little bit) :).
The software is based on finding long tail keywords that are easy to rank in Google and thereby driving targeted visitors back to your website.
But I also want you to take a look at how I categorize keywords using my keyword research checklist, and then use them to drive traffic back to my website.
This will give you a little insight into how you can use a keyword tool like Long Tail Pro to get on the front page of Google for easy to rank keywords and make a lot of money.
Trust me, you’ll never look at keywords the same again.
Okay, so having said all that, remember software programs like Long Tail Pro are cool and everything, but just keep in mind that they are “just tools” man. They are not going to spit money out if you don’t use them k.
Moreover, you have to understand how to use the tool.
The way that some people promote these tools make it sound as if it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I must admit that I can get carried away sometimes myself, but if I thinks it rocks, then that comes out in my writing – so whats a man to do.
The important thing to remember is that the tool will just make your life a lot easiest, in that you won’t have to perform time consuming, boring calculations on hundreds and hundreds of keywords.
