You have your website up, running and indexed into Google, but you want to know how to find the most searched keywords for your content. So where can you find these keywords? Assuming that you have the very important free Google program, Google Webmaster Tools (GWT) installed on your website, this would be where you need to go to find your answers.

Why do Keywords matter?

If you want good SEO (Search Engine Optimization), you need to be using the keywords that people are using to search the internet for what you have to offer. The reason why this is important, is that it will give you more exposure by placing your content closer to, if not on Page 1 of the Google search results. The closer to Page 1 your content is, the more traffic you can get, which can potentially become your customers.

Search Traffic Percentage by Page

As is seen in the graph image above by Chitika, 91.5% of the search traffic will not go past Page 1 in search results before clicking on a link. Then Page 2 is only 4.8% and Page 3 is even lower at 1.1% of search traffic. Pages 4 to 10 are less than 1%. This is why it is important to construct your content with good quality keywords, so that you can get as close to Page 1 as possible.

How to find the best Keywords for SEO

By using Google Webmaster Tools you can see the top most searched keywords people are using to find and access your content. Now you may be saying to yourself, I know the keywords I was targeting in my content, so why do I need to search for others? The simple answer is that your targeted keywords are not always the most popular at any given time. Search trend will always change as time goes by.

It is important to always monitor the popular keywords that people are using to find your content, and then use those keywords to draw in more traffic. I am going to give you an example of what I did to get more traffic to a recent blog post on my website. The topic of my blog post was on a program called DS Domination Monopoly and why it was not worth the $500 cost.

How to Find the Most Searched Keywords_1

Current Status Screen in GWT

I had gone into my GWT in search of how my scam review on DS Domination was doing. Once I was into the initial “Current Status” screen, I clicked on the tab that says “Search Queries” as seen in the image above. This Current Status screen displays how many pages you have that are indexed into Google, how many warnings or Crawl Errors if there are any, and the amount of Impressions and Clicks of Search Queries that your website has received.

On the Search Queries page there are two tabs, Top queries and Top pages. As you can see in the image below, my website readers top query or keyword is “ds domination,” which naturally was one of my targeted keywords. But the 2nd most searched keyword or query is “ds domination monopoly.” This was not a keyword I was targeting and it only appears once in my content.

Top Queries in GWT

After seeing that I said to myself, that is the keyword I am going to target in my next blog report about DS Domination. It is always good practice to write a blog and have it represent an existing page of content on your website, so that you can link to it and enhance your SEO. So I did some further research into this monopoly program and created the blog post.

Being that my DS Domination scam review is my top most popular page and that my new blog title contained both of the top two most searched queries, my blog post became my 4th most popular page in a matter of 2 weeks. Yes DS Domination is a hot topic and many want to know if it really is worth joining, but having the blog shoot up to Google Page 1 within 2 weeks blew my mind!

By just using Google Webmaster Tools you can get important and historical information on how to find the most popular keywords or search queries as they are related to your website content. You can also learn what are your most popular pages and many other helpful information about the search quality of your website. The brief Google video below gives you an explanation into the other features of GWT.

So now that you see the importance of viewing your Search Queries or Keywords that are driving traffic to your website, use this feature in how to find the most searched keywords that can help with your SEO. If these keywords are really popular, you can capitalize on their popularity to draw in more website traffic.

Google Webmaster Tools is a very valuable free software program that Google offers that can have great profound benefits to your website and blog beyond top search queries and top pages. Another great feature of GWT is the Fetch as Google option that will allow you to submit your content into the Google index within hours instead of waiting the normal 4 to 5 days for Googlebot to crawl your website.
