Assuming you already did the task on Day 2, Know Your Competitors’ Key Phrases or Keywords — it is time for us to do some research on our competitors’ keywords or key phrases.
Today, our task is to discover hundreds of new keyword ideas for our website.
We recommend that you use an SEO tool, like SEMRush and SEOPowerSuite (Rank Tracker) to discover new keywords. You may do it manually, yet it may take a lot of time.
Alternatively, if you have installed Google Search Console on your website, you can also discover new keywords and key phrases there. Even if you use an SEO tool, I recommend using Google Search Console to check the keyword impressions, clicks, CTR, and positions. SEMRush and SEOPowerSuite (Rank Tracker) both integrate Google Search Console into their software/tool.
As there are thousands of keywords to discover, use more than one method or technique in keyword research. That is so you would not miss out on crucial keywords (traffic-generating and conversion-generating keywords).
How long does it take to discover new keywords or key phrases?
It takes about 30 minutes if you are using an SEO tool; and perhaps about an hour or two if you are doing it manually via the search engines.
