In the Free Keyword Search Tool – Jaaxy – I described the free versions of Jaaxy, what a keyword tool is and why it is needed and explained which free version of Jaaxy is better. In this post, I will attempt to answer – what is the Jaaxy keyword tool.
Jaaxy-Lite is as good or better than many of the free and paid keyword search tools I've used.
Jaaxy Starter is a free keyword search tool – free for anyone!
The Pro and Enterprise memberships are $49 or $99 a month –if you are NOT a Wealthy Affiliate member. Wealthy Affiliate members get hefty discounts on the Jaaxy premium memberships.
Most keyword tools are charging monthly fees of $39 to $399 a month to use their services. So – the pricing for Jaaxy is comparable to other premium keyword tools.
Why pay a premium for a keyword tool when you can get it for free – or at a deep discount?
Note: Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy helped me build this website with step-by-step instructions and daily tasks –
in 43 days – and my Wealthy Affiliate membership costs less than $1 a day!
I'm a bargain shopper. I almost paid a lot for a training called AWOL Academy They were asking $17,997 and promising they could teach me what I felt like I was missing in Internet marketing. Luckily, I did my research and found Wealthy Affiliate which comes with Jaaxy at the bargain basement price of $359 a year.
It's a lot HARDER to find quality products, training and tools for free or as a bonus. You see, I don't mind paying for something if I am getting something in return. Wealthy Affiliate is the real deal. You pay $359 for a full year of everything you need to start a business in a box. (I highly recommend – joining WA for free)
Free Keyword Tools
A lot of the free tools out there are very limited in their functions. Some will give you related keywords without search volume – or just an estimate of search volume like Google's free Keyword tool. A lot of these free keyword tools are geared toward pay per click traffic – which will not help a content marketer who is writing for organic search engine rankings.
In order to have a free version to a paid tool – you have to make it limited in comparison to the paid membership or no one would ever upgrade!
Jaaxy does limit your searches, the speed of those searches and some other features with the free “Starter” membership you can only do 30 Keyword Searches a month – which is really limiting if you are trying to run a business and publish several blog posts, YouTube videos and other social media posts where you need to do keyword research.

What Can Keyword Research Do for My Business?
You have always wanted to have your own business, doing what you love, paying the bills so you can travel, spend more time with family and do what you love to do in your TIME OFF!
Having a business is not all work, no play.
Having a business means you are willing to work smart and hard for very little pay in the beginning stages of your business in reward for a big payout and reward when your business gets rolling.
Writing for the right keywords can bring visitors to your site who are looking for what you are selling or telling them about. If you are really good at teaching, telling or sharing – whatever it is you are doing – if people know, like and trust you, they MAY buy from you eventually. They may love the way you communicate and bookmark your blog or sign up for your mailing list.
When you pick keywords – you are going to be looking for the “low hanging fruit” so you can start getting some organic traffic and build on that with each keyword and post you write on.
Are you calling your visitors to action? Give people a reason to come back to your website.
How to Research Keywords for a Niche Website
Not every niche website starts out as a Grand Slam – and not every website wins the game of getting traffic and becoming successful. If you keep working on your base hits you can make it home. Keywords, keyword phrases and long tail keywords – which can all be used interchangeably – are your base hits.
The Grand Slam would be getting the #1 spot on Google for a keyword with 40K searches a month. That would be sweet!
Not happening as a new site, though.
So, you need to hit some base hits… maybe even bunt at first.
Look for the keywords with 30 to 50 searches per month, the traffic they bring may be 5-10 visitors a month – and very low competition.
The keyword research you do is going to help you pick your topics that you write posts and pages on – your keyword choices can make or break your website. Write one post per keyword. Include the keyword in your title, the url-slug of the post and in the meta description. Tags and keywords are another good place to put your keyword. And if none of this makes sense right now- it is explained in full detail inside Wealthy Affiliate!
Then, write a kick-butt, informative post on the subject of your keyword. Don't fizzle out with a 200 word – piece of junk post. Put out a 2,000 word helpful article that people will want to read because it expands their mind. Teach other people what you know about your niche. And if you are faking it til you make it – do some research and learn something before you try to teach something!
Stay Laser Focused!
Whether you think about writing for a keyword or for an audience – you have to stay on subject.
If you are writing for the keyword “work from home” – you don't want to start talking about 9-5 jobs outside the home – that's not your audience. And people like me who love to work from home will leave because they are no longer interested in what you are talking about.
When you find a low search volume keyword with very little competition – and you rank for that keyword – you are getting traffic. It may just be a few visitors per post you put out – but if you add that up over the course of a year—
Let's say you write 2 posts a week for a year – that's about 100 posts. If your average post got you 5 new unique visitors a month – at the end of a year – you would be getting new 500 visitors a month. That's nothing to sneeze at. I have a couple sites that get around 500 visitors a month– if your message is good and your visitors are engaging – contacting you – signing up for mailing lists – and you have a good product that is helping people – 500 visitors with a 2-5% conversion rate is 10-25 sales per month.
There are some great sites – getting 100K visitors a month – that is what we strive for!
And the work you do – writing posts – stays out there forever and keeps attracting new traffic to your site. So, on day one of your second year, you are starting out with 500 visitors per month and building on that. Now, your trust flow has gone up – and you may be able to go for keywords with a bit more traffic and a little more competition. You still don't want to go after the keywords that are dominated by authority sites – you will get the hang of it. I'm going to show you some keyword research in a video.
In the beginning, when you are a new site, your “Trust Flow” of your website is low.
How do you raise the trust factor of your website?
Consistently put out high quality 1,500+ word articles that are laser focused on one keyword each.
Have 5-7 keyword focused categories that you write in – and make sure all your posts fit in a category.
Your Website is the Wheel and Keywords are the Spokes
Think of your website as a wagon wheel or a ship's wheel – with spokes.
Your main idea for your website is the center of the wheel – the hub.
The spokes are your categories – your main keywords, ideas, and a blog post or page keeping that spot.
You see the dots you see in the picture?
Those are your posts. Your supporting blog posts and pages and each one is laser focused on a long tail keyword that you researched in Jaaxy.
Imagine if each one of those dots were a blog post getting 30-50 searches per month and you write really good content that focuses on one low competition keyword per post.
Google Likes Consistency
For many years, I have heard that Google likes to see blogs publish regularly. I have even heard that if you blog once a week, make it the same day and time so Google can see you are reliable. If you publish twice a week – do it every week at the same time. If you publish daily – publish at the same time daily.
If you can publish every day – do it! Don't hold back.
This is your business and you can put in as much or as little work into your business as you want.
You will get what you give. Give 100% to your business now and you will get 100% back from your business.
You can build out one category at a time – or you can balance the time you write in each category and build your website categories out evenly.
It's up to you, your writing style, your thought process and your plan.
Just today, someone said they had been working on their blog over 2 months and they still were not seeing any organic traffic and they had no sales – they wanted to know why. When I looked at the blog posts they had published – they were very inconsistent. 3 posts one week, zero posts for a couple weeks, 1 post most week and 2 posts other weeks. In 13 weeks, they had put out 19 posts with several weeks with zero.
No consistency – no results.
Magestic Trust Flow and Citation Flow
When your website is just starting – these numbers will be ZERO!
I made my first blog post a little over a month ago and have been adding 2-3 posts a week and commenting on blogs as well as link building and my TF =24 CF =32
My Citation Flow is 8 points higher than my Trust Flow – this means have a lot of links but they are low quality – and I should keep my eye on that ratio and try to get higher quality back links.
In the beginning – when TF & CF are 0-25 I would keep the numbers in Jaaxy
low competition (under 100 QSR) (95-100 SEO) and low traffic (up to 30)
I would consider writing for any keyword in my niche with ANY traffic under 30 in the beginning stages of a website.
After 1-3 months of blogging consistently – you should get TF & CF to 25-50
up to medium competition (up to 200 QSR) (85+ SEO) and up to medium traffic (up to 100)
After 3-6 months of blogging consistently – your TF & CF should both be over 50 (hopefully) – if not – study ways to raise TF and CF with higher quality backlinks and more of them. As time goes on you should be able to target keywords with higher competition and more monthly traffic.
You can't expect to beat out the whales on Google search engines for the #1 position if you are a minnow.
