If you’re going to be using our articles in the CopyDoodles affiliate area Resources section as blog posts or articles on your own personal website, the best way to get recognized by search engines is to use GREAT keywords for maximum SEO. When looking for good keywords, you’re going to need to use the Google Keyword Tool and I’ll explain that in a moment.
Once you find good keywords you’re going to want to create articles using those keywords (or use the articles we’ve already created for you and tweak them). Each article will focus on just ONE keyword. The keyword should appear in the first sentence of that article, the last sentence of that article, and then it should be peppered throughout the article.
Doing the above will build up your article so it gets recognized by search engines.
Now, since this can get confusing I’m going to begin with the step by step process of finding good keywords. After you find these keywords, follow the above paragraph for SEO on your website and in articles.
Step 1: Come up with a list of about 10 keywords that relate to CopyDoodles, or whatever product you’re promoting. Just think of things you may search for or you think people may search for that is relevant to CopyDoodles.
These may be keywords such as:
marketing with handwriting
small business tips
Step #2: Open up the Google Keyword Tool (you can also search for “Google Keyword Tool” and it will come up
Step #3: In the “Word or Phrase” box, type your first keyword (as shown below) and press “Search” Let’s just pretend you wanted to talk about how you can use CopyDoodles in webinars…
Step #4: A whole list of keywords will appear. You want to sort these keywords by, “Global Monthly Searches.” You do this by clicking the words I have circled in RED below.
Step #5: Scroll down until you see keywords that may be relevant to what you are promoting. There will probably be keywords such as “marketing,” “marketing tool,” “training marketing,” etc… These keywords are WAY too broad. If you choose a keyword like this it will take you years and years to come up on the first page of Google for these keywords, if it ever happens!
Plus, someone searching for “Marketing” may not be looking for anything on webinars. So those people would not be good targets anyway.
You want nice long tail keywords (3 or 4 words long). Keywords people may type in in hope they find a product like the one you’re promoting.
All of the keywords on this list will be sorted by “Global Monthly Searches” that means the amount of people who type this exact keyword in their browser per month. You’re looking for good keywords that have over 10,000 people searching per month.
In my search I see a keyword, “How to make a webinar.” It sounds like a good keyword, but only has 3,600 searches per month. That’s good, but I want to find something even more people are looking for.
I see a keyword for, “how to generate leads.” The P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Webinar is great for that.. hosting a webinar will help generate leads and new clients.. AND this keyword has 14,800 searches per month!
NOTE: If you type in one of your keywords above and don’t find anything, that’s okay, just search on a new keyword and start again until you find a good amount of keywords you can put on your website and in your articles.
Step #6: Next, open your Internet browser and Google the keyword you just found. So I am going to Google, “how to generate leads.” Make sure you put quotations around your word or phrase, this will narrow down the results so it only finds other sites that have that phrase.
Step #7: Press enter and look to see how many website results come up. If you see under 100,000 websites (you will be able to see the amount right under your search bar), then you’ve found a good keyword.
The reason we do this is because we want to find keywords that a LOT of people are using and searching for, but we also want to find keywords where there is NOT a lot of competition. So if there are under 100,000 other websites that come up using this keyword, then it’s much easier for your site to get to page 1 or page 2 of Google.
It’s as simple as that! Once you’ve got a good list of keywords, start using them!
The great thing about using articles to promote your affiliate links is that your content will be evergreen. You can leave it up on your website for years and can still continue to get sales. It’s a little bit of work for a lifetime of affiliate sales.
