As seen below:
Google is able to display these keywords because searchers enter them often. Which definitely means the keyword is in high demand but don’t jump up yet.

c. SEMrush keyword Overview [Free Paid Tool]
Yes, you are going to use SEMrush tool to find the search volume of your keywords.
The issue here is you are gonna be limited and allowed only three times per day. It’s worth trying though.

Pick your Keyword and head in to semrush.com, in the box, put in your keyword and hit search.
For example: I can put in “Namecheap Affiliate Program” and hit start now button.
If that keyword I put in has a search volume, semrush would return a response showing me the search volume easily and fast.
But if it does not, then semrush either respond with no search volume or give few suggestions of similar keywords with search volume that i can use.
Note that if you try this up to three or more times, you may exceed the daily usage and would have to wait till another day.
Congrats so Far.
The Last Step would be to check if we can actually rank for these keywords. Talking about the Keyword Difficulty.

I will share them with you [Free Tools]
I. SEMrush Paid Tool for Free
You can use the semrush tool. It allows you check the difficulty of a keyword but only limits you to the amount keywords you could check daily.
So you are going to take it slowly.
Head over to semrush.com and in the box that appears once more. Don’t type a keyword there anymore instead type your blog homepage url [tipsonblogging.com] and hit Start.
You should see the keyword difficulty checker under keywords analytic as seen below
Note that you can’t put in too much keywords as you are using the free version.
See the results I got below.
You see above image?
I can easily rank on google first page for the keyword having difficulty score of 52 and 50.
This is ideal for a brand new blog or website however you need to increase your domain authority to get as much results as possible.
If your blog is new or just growing, target keywords within this range 50-55 and you’d start pulling lots of search engine traffic.
The More Authority your domain the more easier it is to rank for these keywords and just a matter of 1 week you start ranking on google first page.
However, you should not panic about the domain authority aspect, you can still rank on page 1 of google.
I do it for new sites and you can too. but I strongly recommend you do a few things to boost your domain authority like
- More Quality Contents
- Long Aged Domain
- Patience and the Likes
If you cant use semrush, you could as well try keyword inspector. It’s a great free tool but I highly recommend you use semrush.
