Beth Guide, President of SEO411.COM on Keyword Research

Beth Guide
"The next way we determine keywords it to examine our competitors.They often think of words and circumstances that could add to your list of keywords. So we can stop by their site and look at their title tags and the meta descriptions and follow clues as to what they think is important. Additionally I can use a tool like SEMRush or Raven Tools that will give me an analysis of my competitor. I can see what words they optimize for and I can see what words they are bidding on in Adwords. It would be a good idea to put those words in the Google keyword tool as well to help expand the number of keywords you have access to."  - Beth Guide. Click here to read the entire article.
