Question: With the site:.com is it valuable to put in your keywords to see what people are really searching for and determine what keywords will really work?
Answer: The site: Command on Google is used to see how many pages Google knows about on your site, and if you click on the left column for the dates / days, you can see how frequently Google is pulling your content. It doesn’t really give you data on keywords or how people click. You need to use Google Analytics for that.
Secondly, you can use the site: command to find the STRONGEST page on a website for a particular keyword. So if you use site:jm-seo.net training you find the strongest page on our site for the keywords ‘training.’ That may be useful to make sure that the page you WANT to be the most powerful is actually the most powerful.
