    What are keywords in the context of SEO?
    They’re words and phrases that people type into search engines to find what they’re looking for. Keywords are important in SEO because it sets the entire foundation for search engine optimization.
    The basic goal of SEO is to rank your pages for keywords that your target audience or customers are searching for. And if you’re not ranking for keywords that actually get searched, then your SEO efforts are meaningless.
    Keyword research is the process of finding keywords that people are inputting into search engines.
    How do you actually choose keywords that are worth targeting?
    The first thing to check is if your keyword has search demand.
    You’ll learn how to check for search demand in the video.
    The second thing to check is the traffic potential of the topic. This represents the total search traffic you could get if you were to rank at the top of Google for your keyword.
    Why is traffic potential much more reliable than search volume? How do you check it? We’ll go through the process in the video.
    The next point is to assess the business potential of the keyword or topic.
    Business potential simply represents the value a keyword has to your business. And “value” really comes down to your niche and your business model.
    You’ll learn how to do this in the video.
    The next point is to see if you can match search intent.
    Search intent represents the reason behind a searcher’s query. The way we determine that is by looking at the top-ranking pages for the keyword we want to rank for.
    You’ll learn how to do this in the video.
    Choosing keywords comes down to finding a balance in the checklist. You have to ask yourself some questions. Which questions are they? You’ll find out in the video.
