With any long term initiative, it can be a challenge to know if you are on the right path towards success or if you are not making enough progress toward your goals. At times, SEO and content initiatives can fall into this bucket. You may have a great strategy, be executing according to your plan and feeling like you’re on the right path, but how do you know for sure? You’re not going to see the traffic, conversions, and revenue until further down the road, especially if you are in a B2B industry with a long sales cycle.
It’s important to look at many different data points before deciding on which keywords to target to drive Organic traffic. A great first step is to come up with a seed list of keywords by thinking about how prospects and customers would refer to your products and services. Start with broad / generic keywords, including what industry you are in and want to be known for to your target audience. For example, MoreVisibility might have Digital Marketing, SEO and Paid Advertising Management on our keyword seed list to describe our business and what we offer.
