How to choose keywords that will convert

I am often asked how to choose keywords. Mostly this relates to the Blogsearch for Blogs with no nofollow-Tag. For this matter choosing keywords is not so important – as it is only for finding blogs with a topic you are familiar with – in order to enable you to make quality comments.

But what about the keywords you build your site around and what about the keywords you use when commenting on a do-follow blog? Here it is extremely important to choose wisely. First of all, you will want to know wether there is a sufficient search volume for a given term. For that purpose tools like Keyword Elite are very helpful (And by the way Keyword Elite can help you with quite a few other keyword related tasks.

But this doesn’t help you in the decision wether a keyword is just very popular or wether a person searching for it actually intends to buy something. Now what if you were a search engine and could just look up your statistics … wouldn’t that be great?

Well, there is something near to it: The “Commercial Intention” checking tool over at Microsoft AdCenter Labs. You can find it here: Commercial Intention Tester
