Our Keyword Research Services
Free Website Review and SEO Audit
Whether you decide to become an Assertive client or not, every person that comes to us receives a free SEO audit to analyse the current state of your website and how it compares to your competitors.
Doing this enables us to evaluate how we can support you and the areas you’ll see the quickest results.
Elements such as the structure of your site, which of your landing pages performs well, and the amount of traffic you’re receiving are essential for us to understand how we can support you.
Execution & Reporting
If you already have content in place, we can use some of the keywords to replace your current phrases with ones that will offer better results in the long term.
Another essential aspect of our service is evaluating your current content, including blog posts, and putting together a strategy to incorporate the keywords.
We’ll provide regular reports so you can look at how your site is improving and the steady growth that they’re providing for your website.
Once we’ve compiled a list of effective keywords, we’ll choose the queries that will offer you the best chance of ranking and reaching your audience.
Depending on your goals, we’ll segment the keywords to reach your ideal customers in a range of demographics.
Intensive Keyword Research
Keyword research is an intensive process that should cover all bases. Unfortunately, many agencies rush this phase, which results in poor results and minimal growth for a business. Our researchers take their time to find the right words and phrases by considering the following aspects.
The industry you operate in is so essential because it defines how your audience will find you. For example, if you’re a medical company but only work with individuals with hearing issues, then you’d need keywords that reflect your business.
Broad keywords related to the general medical profession won’t do you any favours because people are less likely to visit your site when they find out you only provide hearing services.
We’ll look at your business, what you offer and how you can connect with the right people.
Your location is essential for SEO because some people might be looking for a product or service in a specific area. Keyword research should narrow down your choices and enable you to connect with the right people.
A small bakery in Kent wouldn’t want to use broad keywords such as UK bakery because it wouldn’t attract customers who could visit the premises.
Ranking on Google and other search engines is notoriously tricky, especially for new businesses. If you’re competing against larger competitors with a lot of backlinks, it’s going to take a long time before you can potentially outrank them.
Our specialists search for unique niche keywords that can put your business on the map. Once you start to rank and build more page and domain authority, we can use more competitive words to outrank your competitors.
Our Keyword Research Service Process
There was a time when keyword research was a predictable and straightforward process. You’d use a research tool, find some high-volume, low-competition words and phrases – then add them to your content strategy.
But as mobile devices and voice-activated searches become more popular, finding the right keywords requires a multi-pronged approach. Assertive specialises in SEO, which means we’re aware of the current trends and are a forward-thinking agency.
We know how quickly things can change, but our team of specialists can source the right strategy for your needs and make sure you don’t rely solely on Google. Our keyword research services take a range of factors into account, including search intent, your current organic traffic, and your target audience.
With Assertive, we guarantee to deliver a list of keywords that will improve your traffic.
We Identify Your Target Audience, Search Terms & We Use Existing Search Console Data
Keyword research is as much about identifying your target audience as it is finding what they search for – how people search is crucial as voice search continues to evolve – we identify how and what people are searching for. We look for opportunities based on user intent – what’s more likely to convert and generate your business revenue.
We Group, Segment & Stack Keywords
Once we understand how and what your target audience is searching for – we then group terms into relevant clusters. From eCommerce product and category searches through to research & conversion / service driven searches – we’ll isolate all core and long-tail keywords that people are using to find what you have to offer. We turn this data into actionable and digestible keyword research sheets that can be integrated into your overall marketing strategy.
We Segment Your Search Console Data
Google Search Console is an absolute goldmine when it comes to identifying longer tail opportunity. We use Google big data API to mine out keyword data – we then match this up against existing pages on your website.
If we get access to any Google ads data, we pair this up with search console data to cross-analyse query potential to convert – if PPC data has conversions – this should be used as part of your overall SEO strategy.
We Benchmark Organic Performance Over Time for Target Keywords
Once your keyword data is ready – we then look at performance over time to ascertain if the keywords offer any short term opportunity to rank and what that might entail.
We also look at whether or not your existing POT keyword data shows signs of cannibalisation / multiple page associations.
We Can Support Your SEO
If your business requires additional support – i.e. you want us to deliver more than just your keyword strategy, we can. Off the back of keyword data we can generate an SEO strategy and a plan to targeting and ranking for keywords of value.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t I do my own keyword research?
Yes, you can. But many people find that they’re unable to get the same results as when they use a professional SEO agency. If you want to compete against other businesses in your niche, an agency can use high-tech software and specialist knowledge to drive forward results.
Do you guarantee the keywords will get me on the first page of Google?
We can’t ever guarantee someone that we’ll get them onto the first page, but we will do everything we can to help our clients reach that goal. Ultimately, it depends on the niche you’re operating in and how competitive it is.
Do you provide keywords for voice search?
Yes, voice search is crucial for local businesses, but many people use it. Naturally, we speak differently to how we type, so our specialists will continually optimise for voice search.
Will SEO keyword research work?
Keyword research is the difference between a site that’s lost in the depths of the internet and a destination that people can find.
Those words and phrases help people discover your company during searches and drive them to your content.
