Question: If your are in an industry that is highly competitive online would it be better to use a less searched keywork to get to page 1 faster
Answer: It’s not just about search VOLUME but also about search VALUE. Your best, most valuable keywords are LONG TAIL keywords that are HIGH VOLUME for you and your company personally… Look for those; find those. You are right – they tend to be less competitive, so riches are in the niches, as they say.
Keyword research is really important. Think about the keywords as the SEO COMPETITIONS you are entering – you are looking for value (yes) but ones that you can win.
