Keyword Research

Through our comprehensive keyword research and analysis services we can help you identify key opportunities to inform your SEO strategy to maximise visibility and ROI.

What is keyword research?

Keyword research and analysis is a critical component of any SEO campaign. It is the practice of identifying what your audience is searching for, what the intent is behind their search, and which key terms are right for your business in order to generate relevant and profitable organic traffic.

Our process

The process of evaluating keywords is both an art and a science. We use tailored and comprehensive research methods to determine achievable goals  for your business.

Our keyword research process is based on a data-first methodology, with a strong focus on conducting competitor analysis. This allows us to look at valuable keyword data at the ranking URL level, and a holistic view of your entire market landscape in the search engines.

View below some of the data points we collect and analyse during this process at the ranking URL level:

Average monthly searches
Average CPC
User intent
Keyword topic
Keyword usage in title
Keyword usage in url
Total word count
Page backlinks
Backlink strength
Trust score
Difficulty score

Measuring anticipated ROI

To take our keyword research process even further, we build an ROI model into the data at URL level. The model is not an exact science. With well over 200 contributing ranking factors, and with the constantly changing interfaces Google is creating for different types of queries; not all keywords and not all SERP’s are the same. 

The ROI model uses the following metrics:

  • Monthly search volume
  • Rank click-through rate
  • Conversion rate
  • Average order value
  • Average cost per page
  • Average cost per backlink
