SEO or Audience???

Study competitor keywords to win the SEO is most popular myth on the Internet. It could be one technique to win over your competitor but not the whole strategy. SEO market is full of keyword, many of the companies miserably fail in audience research. The noise around Keyword research is so loud that business managers missed out on the main thing; i.e. what users want?
I am not against keyword research, many companies win the SERPs game by focusing on SEO keywords but fail in generating sales.They feel appearing on top of searches will win the customers. However, true SEO is, study of audience needs and then working those pain points.
To know what your audience wants, reach them and ask. Understand your customers pain points. Then address those issues, make the SEO points your title keywords, meta description, keywords and tags
Time have changed now. Today audience get everything without asking. Google search is still good business in inventory but I doubt if this is equally good as 10 years ago. In current scenario you need to reach to people, you can't just sit and wait. And you need to find your consumers, you need to pick them from the crowd. SEO works well if you can spot your consumers.
You can reach to your audience many ways.
  • Create a form on your website and invite user queries. Also you can make this form your landing page.
  • Find your niche, go to forums, look for experts, see what kind of questions they often answers.
  • Find your Hashtags, engage in Twitter Chat, look what kind of question people ask or answer.
  • Go to Quora, look for questions in your niche.Look for difficult and different questions and not the ordinary one.
  • Go to real marketplace, meet some people physically. Know their pain points.Do real time market survey of buyers and sellers.
  • Be available on Phone. People want to talk. Do not assign this task to 'Jenny', instead take the call yourself. 'Jenny' want salary, you want sell.
  • Do the analysis of data gathered from above actions. Find the action keywords and not only keyword.
  • Embed action keywords in your HTML.
  • Think like an audience. Solve the problems.

Work hard but when

Work hardThose are two words I grew listening with As a young kid I used to think should I go forest and cut some tree branches, or like my Grandpa graze some cattle or like that uncle go farm. And if work hard is the key why not my dad go forest so we can buy and fly an airplane. Perhaps small children think like that and think much freely, don't know though but I was like that. Airplane dream never realized and when I joined a company I was told we want to be number 1. I didn't nodded even, just learnt CEO want to take company to No. 1 position, somewhere deep down I took that as a challenge. The inner me knows I have an opportunity to invest resources and grow. I am in habit of enjoying my task so no big deal, I know I can try my best to work my way, results are not in my hands. What I can do is called work. And being a physics student i know when we multiply force to distance we get work done. That work could be hilarious, why not, laughing gas is there a result of work done by …
