Should I go for Irrelevant keywords?

Discussion in 'Keywords' started by dscurlock, Aug 20, 2016.

    The niche I have chosen is very competitive...
    I can count the keywords on just one hand...

    There are tons of irrelevant low comp keywords...
    ABC Manuals, ABC Apps, etc...

    however, I do not have apps or manuals on my site, so if
    i were to target these keywords, then I feel they would not
    be buyer intent; they are simply looking up a manual, app, etc...

    In other words, I would feel that it would be misleading, because if
    they are looking for app or manual stuff, then land on unrelated
    pages, thus causing the site to have a high bounce rate....

    Do not do this. Google looks for value add to the end user, if you are advertising stuff you don't actually have then it results in a negative user experience which Google will pick up on though backclicks. This will damage your rankings. I know it's hard but persevere on those few tough keywords. You may pick up some related longtail rankings as a positive side effect.

    hello

    in seo u should took low demand and low competitive or high demand and low competitive keyword. Use Long tail keyword with LSI versions.
    and keywords must have average monthly value below 5000 and difficulty below 50.

    An "irrelevant" keyword is one that brings the wrong type of audience. In other words, you get the traffic, but they don't take the action you want them to take.

    If your niche is very competitive and you have no marketing/seo budget, the only way to break in is by targeting long-tail keywords and building your way up from there. Your top priority should be selecting keywords that are the closest in user intent to the action you want your visitors to take on your site.

    Your second priority should be targeting keywords that follow the customer journey from the very beginning (even before they know they have a problem). This might include keywords that are informational in nature. Targeting those has an added benefit of you positioning yourself as an authority in the marketplace.

    So, even if you have no apps or manuals on your site, there is nothing wrong (or misleading) about creating a post that lists the 5 Best ABC Manuals or Apps, if it helps your target audience.

    Do what makes sense for your audience. Like mentioned above, if you're in a competitive niche, you can target long-tail keywords that bring in less traffic but are easier to rank. If you target a lot of these it adds up and will make up the bulk of your traffic, hence why you should always be adding quality content to your site.

    Do not do this as google wants to add value to its users and google tracks the things you do to get traffic.
    If you want to have a good search engine ranking always try to use keywords that are relevant to your topic.
    If you use relevant keywords it would ultimately help your website grow and will help you get a quality audience for your content.

    If I answer after reading your question(title), the answer would be "NO". But reading your thread description, I think its not a easy question to answer. I think you can target this keywords in branding concept.

    Going for irrelevant keywords is not going to do you any good as they will be a waste of time. Catching up to your competitors means that you use the high-ranking keywords and metrics as them regardless of the situation.
