If you can find a keyword that is popular with low competition then you have the best keyword to use. Let me explain the first method and then we will work our way to the final and #1 best keyword tool method to help put all of these into perspective.
1. Google – Alphabet Soup Technique
Google.com is everyone’s #1 go-to tool for online research. When you type a keyword into the google search toolbar you will notice that as your type in a word/phrase, a list of more “related” keywords pop up right underneath. These keywords/phrases listed are considered to be the “most searched for” words people are typing into google every day to get information on.
Here is an example I typed into Google’s search bar “how to lose belly fat”. As you can see in the screenshot below a list of related keywords to “how to lose belly fat fast”, “how to lose belly fat quickly” and “how to lose belly fat naturally” are also listed right below.
So there you have 3 more popular “related” keywords phrases everyone is searching for in google every day.
From here you can continue with using the alphabet soup technique to get even more keyword ideas by typing in how to lose belly fat “a”…
Then continue by typing in how to lose belly fat “b”…
Then of course how to lose belly fat “c”…
And so on…
This is exactly how to use the Aphabet Soup technique in google. Pretty easy so far? Now let’s go to Yahoo.com and search their toolbar to see what the most popular keyword phrases people are searching for there.
2. Yahoo! Answers
Yahoo Answers is a community driven question and answer website or a knowledge market from Yahoo that allows users to both submit questions to be answered and answer questions asked by other users.”
Yahoo! Answers was replaced by Ask Yahoo and made available on May 14, 2006. Search up to date information people are interested in knowing more about by looking at Yahoo.com answers. This is a great tool you can use to find popular keywords.
Here is an example of the keyword “how to lose belly fat for”. You have another list of popular related keywords you can now use.
eHow.com was launched in March 1999 and is an online “how to” guide with many articles and videos offering step-by-step instructions. These are created by freelancers and cover a wide variety of topics. eHow is often considered a “content farm”.
At eHow you can discover a wide range of how-to related articles to get inspiration from.

Now you have a list of the top related keywords people are searching for online.
But how do you know which one is best to use?
Look for words/phrases with high search volumes but low competition in Jaaxy like so…
- QSR must be under 100 if you have a new website. It can be a little higher if you already have a website where your content is already getting indexed in google, bing and yahoo.
- AVG is the average number people search that exact keyword for per month and this is best at 100 or better.
- KQI (keyword quality indicator) is GREEN FOR GREAT! If it’s RED then it’s a NO GO! But we don’t have any here for this keyword.
- Make sure the keyword phrase makes grammatical sense or DO NOT USE IT!
There you have the most important factors to look at in jaaxy to know which keyword will be best suited to rank for.
Which one of these listed above would you consider to be the best suited keyword to use? They are all listed under KQI for GREAT so any of them listed would be good to use however…
Here is what I consider to be the best one(s) and why?
“How to lose belly fat fast for women”
- QSR is 56 – GREAT! Not a lot of competition for this keyword!
- AVG is 725 – GREAT! High search volume per month!
“How to lose belly fat for women fast”
- QSR is 44 – GREAT! Not a lot of competition for this keyword!
- AVG is 252 – GREAT! High search volume per month
You could use “how to lose belly fat but not butt” as well as it does rank in the search engines, just not very high. But, with the QSR being at 0, you could rank on the number 1 page! It just may be one to consider!
You decide which one you like best but I would go with the higher search volume as it will be a greater chance of someone clicking on my post/keyword phrase.
