Question: What is the tool that you’re using to highlight keywords in a competitor website?
Answer: When you are researching keywords, of course, you need to identify competitor keywords. One of the best things to do is –
First, identify your target keywords. Second, do one of those searches in Google. Third, look at competitors who come up high in those searches. Fourth, go to their web pages.
Then, once you are on the page – there are two easy ways to see visually what their keyword density is. On the actual page, in Firefox, do a CTRL+F that will open up a search box. Type one of the keywords you just searched for. Hit ‘highlight all.’ That will then highlight all occurrences of the keyword.
Also do a VIEW SOURCE by clicking, VIEW, Page Source on the top Firefox menu bar. This will open up the HTML SOURCE to the page. In Firefox, do a CTRL+F that will open up a search box. Type one of the keywords you just searched for. Hit ‘highlight all.’ That will then highlight all occurrences of the keyword. The trick here is now you are seeing not only the keywords but the relationship of the keywords to the page tags, and as we will see in the class on Page Tags the ‘relationship’ of keywords to tags is critical to SEO success!
