COMMON Mistakes Newbie Bloggers Make In Keyword Research

Keyword Research is one of the core parts of your blogging, which can make your blog stand out from your competitors if done correctly. Also, it might help you grow your blog in less time by finding really perfect profitable keywords.

I have seen people always try to find keywords with high search volume and less competition. 

This is a kind of good-to-go thing, but this is not the only thing you have to consider while picking your keyword.

This is ONE OF THE things you should consider while picking your keyword. So, what is the most common mistake people make in Keyword Research? And what are other factors you should also consider when picking your keyword?

So, let me directly jump to the most important factor to consider when picking it and also the most common mistake!


Yep, people don’t go with the intent of keywords.

All they care about is search volume, CPC, and difficulty, and top 10 results in SERP! But, INTENT is all above them.

This is the very first thing you should look for, and this is the MOST CONSIDERABLE thing about your keyword.

Sometimes, even keywords with very high volume cannot bring your much traffic or sales, and sometimes keywords with low search volume have the potential to bring you more profit/traffic.

Don’t pick Keywords with NO INTENT and Good other metrics 

For example, a keyword with high CPC and low difficulty is not going to bring you sales even if it has good search volume. But keywords that have less search volume can be profitable because of the lower competition. To sum up, the most important thing about your keyword is INTENT!

Blogging Mistakes:

– Focusing on just one metric like Search Volume or Competition but forgetting Intent (when picking Keywords)

– Not considering how much research goes into Picking SEO keywords for Content Marketing Strategy

– Using Google AdWords Keyword Tool without knowing its limitations in creating a successful plan for blogging success.

Many other things can be covered related to this, such as types of intent! I’ll cover them in upcoming posts if got a good response.
