Starting off with the right keywords is an absolute must if you want to rank highly in search results. That's where profitable keyword research comes in. 

Understanding how to correctly do keyword research is the difference between hoping you can rank and knowing you can rank for specific keywords. Not only do you want to know you can rank for keywords but you want to make sure they will be profitable.

In this course, we will go step-by-step through the entire keyword research process including:

  • Generating hundreds of keyword ideas
  • Analyzing which keywords will bring you the highest converting traffic
  • Discovering which keywords you should target
  • Finding out which keywords will make you the most money
  • Using free and premium tools to get the job done quickly
  • Spying on your competition to know if you can outrank them

Whether you want to rank your own website or a website for a client, you must start with keyword research before you move on to other SEO tactics. 

Can you imagine how great it's going to feel to know that you WILL outrank and outperform your competition before you ever get started with SEO?
