    Hey Mike,

    Re: How to know which kw's best to choose for blog?

    Cool thanks. This system isn't allowing me to upload the excel file so best I can do is share a link to the file in Onedrive:

    Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    Please note guys, that I am not asking anyone to simply tell me which 4 focus kw's for virus removal will be best for the writer to write the blog for local SEO. Instead I would very much appreciate if anyone can tell me "why" the 4 kw's were chosen to be the best?

    With that knowledge I can then learn to help myself for my other services kw's, you know "teach a man to fish.....".

    I have to sign off for tonight, been a very long day for me, will check back in the morning for any possible answers, thanks.

    p.s. The kw's on the right are what I think will be the best 8 and the 3 in red are what I think will be the best of all?

    Re: How to know which kw's best to choose for blog?

    At first glance it looks like the red keywords are selected based on the fact that they have a decent search volume and low competition. That's a good start.

    The other important consideration when choosing target keywords is "intent". In other words would the intent of a user searching those keywords match what you want them to do when they arrive at the page on the website?

    What's the goal of the blog article?

    Yes, you read that accurately, I chose those kw's for those reasons because that was what my research on kw selection had advised.

    What's the goal of the blog article?
    To get google to rank me for those focus kw's

    What is the blog about?
    My Virus removal services

    You have asked some very accurate questions, thank you.

    To clarify, is your business just a malware removal service? or do you do general computer tune-ups, service, and repairs?

    Re: How to know which kw's best to choose for blog?

    Currently I try to only do Virus removal which is my main specialty but also handle data recovery, operating system repair, reinstall and upgrades and HDD replacement.

    i want to dominate my city for those services but mainly virus removal, the other services are all related in any case.

    So I am trying to get specialized blogs for each service individually and also to avoid repeat content.

    Hey Mike,

    Have you already created and optimized core service pages on the site that are performing?

    Just checking, because my recommendation is typically to square that away before moving on to blog posting as an SEO strategy.

    Yes I've had not one but a few SEO people work on the site over the years and all say it's pretty much optimized for the most part.
