Keyword research is very basic to online marketing of all sorts, Blogging is no exception to that rule. Blogs generally rank well in search engines mostly due to their structure and frequently refreshed content. However, if you blog and don’t use the words people are actually interested in or actively searching for, you could be missing out big opportunity to get traffic.

Keyword research is just not confined to search engines. Even if you considered that search engines don’t deliver traffic, would keyword research still be meaningful and valuable? Without an iota of doubt it would be.

This is so because Keyword research is also market research. Systematically conducted, it lets you know what people are interested in, what they are searching for on the Internet. Furthermore, it let you know the actual keywords and phrases that people use to search for those topics. All this empowers you with loads of information about your target audience.
