When starting your internet marketing journey, this tool is great for moving you forward in your business because after all, if this is where you need to begin your journey, you would not be able to move forward without it. First off, you will need to brainstorm some ideas of keywords that you can start researching to see where people are searching. If this is an internet marketing business that you are going to start promoting, maybe you can start there.

Let’s take a look; if you go to the free keyword site that I mentioned earlier and plug in “internet marketing business”, to the left side of the tool under the header “searches”, you will see that it says 107. Ok, so go to your search engine of preference (I chose Google) and search for internet marketing business and what you will find is that shows a result of 121,000,000, which means that this is way too competitive a market to jump into, right? Maybe, maybe not! This is where your internet marketing education starts to progress in a positive manner to keep you moving forward.

So, here is what you do to determine if you want to get into the market of this keyword phrase or not. As you can see, there are 121,000,000 results with the way that you originally searched for this keyword phrase, go back into the top of the page where your keyword phrase is located and put quotation marks at the front and the end of this keyword phrase and hit “enter” on your keyboard.

Now, as you can see the results have dropped dramatically to 841,000 and is still a bit competitive for my taste when trying to get ranked on the first page of the search engines in the organic listings for free. Ideally, you would want that number to be 20,000 or less to really make it happen for you and once you find that keyword phrase that is in this criteria, you need to really knock it out of the park.

What I mean by knocking it out of the park is this; take that keyword phrase and write and submit an article with your keyword phrase in the body 2 to 3 times and at the beginning of your title, like I have done at the top of this article. Then, take that same keyword phrase and write a press release with your keywords in the body just like you did with your article and submit that to several different press release sites, there are also sites that will allow you to submit your press releases for free.

This method should get you off to a good jump start and as you move forward in your business, you will learn more and get better as you go as long as you are consistent and persistent in your efforts every day. So, get out there and just start working your business, do not give up and keep coming back for more internet marketing education as you go and you will be successful in your endeavors and achieve the goals that you have set for yourself.
