Now it’s time to narrow down your selection to the keywords that produce the highest return on investment (ROI) possible. One of the biggest misconceptions in the keyword selection process is that phrases that have highest traffic volume are going to produce the most sales. That sounds logical but it’s not necessarily true.
Many high traffic terms that are chosen for optimization campaigns produce very little targeted traffic and are not the phrases people use when they are ready to make a purchase. You’ll spend much more time and money trying to get your site to rank well for these kinds of phrases than you would by going after more targeted phrases reaching the “ready to buy” audience.
Over the next few day’s I’ll be posting a few tips on selecting high ROI keywords.
