Hello, and welcome to this article about Wealthy Affiliate’s keyword tool, Jaaxy.
Quite probably like yourself, I’m definitely someone who loves to learn about (and teach to others) the many and varied ‘ins and outs’ of how websites, blog articles or video content gains visibility on the internet, and particularly in regard to search engines – Google, Bing and Yahoo. What does it really require of us? How do we do it? What skills and tips should we have up our sleeve? And what tools can we utilise in our pursuit?
As bloggers and/or YouTubers, we need to know a considerable amount of crucial information about the titles and target words of our posts and videos. Hence the need for keyword research.
With specific and accurate data on the niche we are in and the keywords we are targeting, we able to get the power of search engines on our side and not against us.
What you Want
We want to have an efficient tool and fast access to data that will accurately answer the following:
- What is the keyword’s competition?
- How much traffic does it get?
- What is the average monthly search volume it receives?
- Does the keyword make sense?
If there is a tool out there that can provide all this information accurately, then it is definitely something you will want for your business.
Competition data will show you what you’re up against. For a website that is still fairly young, you will want this stat to be under 100 QSR. Anything higher will mean that you are going to struggle to appear in search results. But if your site is already getting traffic, you can go for keywords that are under 400 QSR.
How much traffic you will get refers to the amount of visitors you will get in a month if you are ranking on the first page of Google. You will want this to be at least upwards of about 7. Remember, with multiple blog posts ranking on page 1, your website’s traffic will soon add up.
The average monthly searches for the specific keyword will tell you how popular it is. You will want this to be somewhere above 40. If it is lower than this, you’ll probably want to try for a different keyword.
To summarise, you will want to find keywords that have a QSR (Quoted Search Results) of less than 100, Average monthly searches of over 40 and a traffic flow of just under 10 per month. Again, as your site grows, you can target more competitive keywords that receive a lot more traffic.
What you Don’t Want
What you don’t want in a keyword research tool is
- Something that you have to install. These are not going to be accurate.
- You don’t want something that gives you PPC estimates; something that calculates a ‘rough idea’ without really informing you with any certainty.
- You don’t want anything that makes Alexa the primary criterion for determining competition.
- You don’t want something that will require multiple, or more than one search in order to get the results you’re looking for.
Now, with so many keyword tools out there, you will find some or all of this issues. And that is why I want to introduce you to Jaaxy – a highly sophisticated and accurate tool that can easily handle any job relating to SEO and Keyword Research.
In Favour of Jaaxy
There is just so much you can do with Jaaxy, so much that can be said in favour of it.
Jaaxy is a creation of the Wealthy Affiliate founders. All the members within WA who have experienced success within the platform have all arrived there thanks to Jaaxy. It was this tool that enabled them, and continues to enable them to achieve website and article rankings in all the big search engines out there, namely, Google, Bing and Yahoo. The tool has a top ranking among all keyword tools, even the most prominent.
The features include the providing of fast and accurate stats on niches, domains, keywords and even the availability of domains and where exactly your own domains and pages rank in Google, Bing and Yahoo, and in which position, e.g. Page 1. Position 3.
It also includes a brilliant feature called Alphebet Soup. The Alphabet Soup technique is a method of finding keywords by putting the keyword or the first part of it into Google search box and then the letter ‘a’ for example, in order to bring up all the automated suggestions and/or common searches under that keyword followed by ‘a.’ You can then try all the other letters and in this way gather numerous possible keywords to use or to research further within Jaaxy. This method is also called Google Instant. But they have all this within the keyword tool so that you don’t have to do it in Google and manually select and copy the results you want.
There is also a feature called ‘Brainstorm’ which allows you to gather all sorts of other information from any selected keyword, besides all the basics. Information such as current ranking, Google trends, Twitter trends, Alexa topics and Amazon best-sellers.
The image below shows you the variety of awesome features and options that come within your Jaaxy research tool.
Here (below) is an example of a search within the camping tents niche. There are more than enough results here for a full scale marketing campaign. And that’s a relatively broad/popular niche. I could create a full time income from countless other less popular niches, all of which I could find with the speedy help of Jaaxy.
Or perhaps I have a t-shirts for men business? Within a few seconds I will find these keywords:
Try it for Yourself
To get a good feel for this tool, go ahead and type in a keyword of your choice and see what Jaaxy comes up with.
Jaaxy comes in three packages: Free, Pro and Enterprise. See details below.
While I am a Pro user myself, it has to be said that the Enterprise version works so much quicker and has many other features not included with either a Free or a Pro account.
Alternatives to Jaaxy.
There are more expensive and therefore more efficient keyword research tools out there. Two of the most popular ones are Ahrefs and SEMrush. If your website is somewhat advanced and brining in a large amount of traffic, one of these tools may be more suitable for you, provided you have the budget.
