Did you know that Webmaster Tools is the best place to see what you should be writing about? In this article, we are going to address How to Use Webmaster Tools for Keyword Research (also known as Search Console) so you can stop floundering and start seeing your SEO soar!
In this space that we call, “home”, I feel like we spend most of our time chasing the next “get rich quick scheme” instead of producing the content that we know our readers want. Why is this? Why do so many blogger fall prey to the newest fad or “pretty, shiny, thing”?
In all the blogging circles, keyword research seems to be the hot topic. If you have an existing blog that has more than 3 months of content on it, your keyword research has already been done for you!
Seriously, if you already have a blog and it has at least 3 months of content on it, the only tools you need for keyword research are Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools! Yes, I felt that it needed repeating.
