What are keywords?

These are the words you use to find what you want

For example "window cleaner" Yet most potential customers don't type window cleaner

They use longer keywrds like:

  • window cleaner near me
  • window cleaner in Bournemouth
  • window cleaner nearby


These are called Long-Tail Keywords (3 to 5 words) , but they are a lot easier to get traffic

traffic = customers

Question what is the perfect keywords?

You want keywords with...

  1. high demand
  2. High buying intent
  3. Low competition.

Note if you are using the vidoe format on YouTube, "how to" get a lot of traffic with videos, especially if you add timestamps

Use keywords everywhere

  1. Web page
