How To Find New Keywords And Expand Your Keyword List
Types of Search Queries
Here's an example of a commercial query:
- high search volume queries are the most competitive and are most popular among users. It's the most difficult to get to the top of organic search results, but they can attract the most traffic to the website. In contextual advertising, such keywords are usually more expensive than low-frequency ones, and PPC can be quite expensive;
- mid search volume queries are less popular and are easier to promote for. In the case of an online store, such keywords should be used for the names of product categories or subcategories, as well as added to contextual advertising (the same is for high-frequency queries;
- low search volume queries are keywords that are most rarely used by users. You can get quite substantial traffic from using many low-frequency keywords on the website. The advantage of such queries lies in easy promotion and higher average conversion compared to mid-frequency ones.
Google contextual advertising won't display ads for extremely rare requests and, thus, gain the status of "Few requests".
