What Is Keyword Research


For the sake of simplicity. It is the process of finding a suitable word(s) that connect your readers and your website. 

When it comes to technical parlance. It is the deliberate attempt of finding keywords that favor search queries. So, that your content includes certain words that help pull your articles in SERP. Here, SERP means Search Engine Result Pages. 

It sounds complicated. But it gets easy with a few attempts. 

If you understand how search engines work. Then, you cannot afford to ignore keywords for search engine optimization

Of course, you can do free form writing. But then you will have to up your game of hopeful marketing. Else, there is minuscule of an iota to extract a good ROI from your content writing efforts

For instance. You run a soap making business. Then, various keywords from that industry will give you different results. 

Both “buy soaps online” and “buy handmade soaps online” are legit search terms on google. Though both seem similar. Yet, they fetch you dissimilar results. 

As a business owner, you understand how much of a difference word(s) can create. Terms like “wholesale”, “retail”, “bulk manufacture” can be the real game-changers.

You Need to Know Why Your Business Needs a Blog



During my initial years of a corporate job, I had issues with one of my bosses. He was not in favor of my blogging activities. Though those days I was blogging as a hobby. And I did use the office resources for my blogging hobby.

Those few minutes per day and the usage of office internet was pinching him. The laptop was mine so no computer from the office resources was a part of my hobby.

As per my then boss, blogging was a useless activity. Instead, he advocated the idea of writing for Industry journals and Newspapers.

With the course of time, my love for blogging deteriorated our relationship. The tyrannies of the HR department further fueled the issue. Though I was in luck that within some time, I got rid of that asshole boss and the toxic organization.

Today as a professional blogger I work on various company blogs.
