Part of designing your keyword strategy is making sure you target keywords that will bring in enough traffic to be worth the effort. There’s no minimum number of searches for a keyword - that depends on your niche and your ability to convert visitors into sales. If you’ve got a Pro or Premium WooRank account, use SERP Checker’s new search volume feature to track estimated monthly searches for your keywords, as well as historical ranking data. If you’re already using SERP Checker, the search volume will appear for your keywords automatically. If you haven’t used it yet, just enter your keywords in the tool and you’ll see your data within 24 hours.
Instead, SEO now takes a multi-faceted approach where you’re involving different disciplines (i.e. content, email, advertising, social), building a brand (i.e. investing in intangibles, not just conversions), and competing on multiple fronts (i.e. paid search positions, review & aggregation sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, beefing up your local listings, and more) – all at the same time.
To keep things simple, you may try IP based redirects on your server. You can setup simple redirects based on geolocation, using .htaccess or httpd.conf on your Apache server (mod_geoip). The GeoIP API (MaxMind) will enable you to quickly configure your server to divert traffic according to the originating IP. Your web analytics and optimization should do the rest. All you need to make sure it that you have a couple of landing pages to test your assumptions on.
For example, within the HubSpot Blogging App, users will find as-you-type SEO suggestions. This helpful inclusion serves as a checklist for content creators of all skill levels. HubSpot customers also have access to the Page Performance App, Sources Report, and the Keyword App. The HubSpot Marketing Platform will provide you with the tools you need to research keywords, monitor their performance, track organic search growth, and diagnose pages that may not be fully optimized.

That said, if you’ve never had to come up with a keyword strategy before, it might seem a bit daunting to generate a list of terms that will drive qualified search traffic to your website. Not to worry. Creating an effective keyword strategy—figuring out which terms you should create content for—isn’t hard. It just involves a little bit of reverse engineering and some research.
For this reason, some companies have taken a more direct measurement approach ‎to IP geolocation vs. trying to infer it through ping triangulation.  It’s far more ‎straightforward, but requires a lot more manual effort.  Basically, these companies ‎send cars out to drive up and down every street in the country and log WiFi IP ‎addresses as well as their physical location to populate the same table that more ‎traditional geolocation companies build through technical means.   Google and ‎Skyhook both use this approach. 
Suchmaschinen gehören zu den wichtigsten Traffic-Quellen im Internet. Doch Suchmaschinenoptimierung ist komplex, denn der Google Suchalgorithmus bewertet über 200 Major-Rankingfaktoren bei der Berechnung des Rankingpotenzials einer Domain. Wie der Suchalgorithmus funktioniert, gibt Google leider nicht bekannt. Doch regelmäßige Konferenzen, Publikationen und die tägliche SEO-Arbeit bringen wichtige Erkenntnisse hervor, wie Suchmaschinenoptimierung erfolgreich funktionieren kann. Auf diesen wichtigen Erfahrungswerten basiert Ihre maßgeschneiderte SEO Analyse.
Even national marketing campaigns can benefit from geo-targeting, as regional differences create opportunities to test multiple messages and refine them as a campaign continues. Geo-targeted experiments has been used successfully by businesses, charities and even political campaigns. Factoring out cultural and ethnic variations, there are still subtle regional differences in something as universal as language. A campaign for donations might be better served by using a “donate” button in one area and a “support” button in another. Similarly, customers might respond differently to the phrase “book your trip” than they do to “buy your ticket” or “schedule your trip.” The same goes for the look and feel of the advertising copy and other content.
A great way to make your website mobile friendly is to implement AMP for your site. Previously it was mainly used by publishers; today it is also a platform for e-commerce and advertising. Since autumn 2017, advertisers can implement AMP for their Google Ads landing pages, making them faster. Building AMP pages for your advertising campaigns can have a positive impact on conversion rates, time on page, bounce rates, and more.
In the figure below, you can see I have set up a keyword rating spreadsheet. I first gathered keyword data from a keyword tool to populate the orange columns. In this example, I used the Google AdWords Keyword Tool. From there I began looking at each keyword and gave each one a score from one to 10. For some I built a formula to automate the process, which comes in handy with larger keyword lists.
This is the paid search strategy that is deployed most often by search marketers and for good reason: it focuses purely on maximizing the profitability of campaigns. For most of us, that is the reason why we continue to spend money with search engines, and why the industry keeps on growing year over year. We manage campaigns to maximize profitability and we don’t have to worry about budgets as long as it’s profitable. Or at least that’s what we hope will happen.

Keyword research for PPC can be incredibly time-consuming, but it is also incredibly important. Your entire PPC campaign is built around keywords, and the most successful Google Ads advertisers continuously grow and refine their PPC keyword list. If you only do keyword research once, when you create your first campaign, you are probably missing out on hundreds of thousands of valuable, long-tail, low-cost and highly relevant keywords that could be driving traffic to your site.
The gap between your goal and your recent performance should guide how you choose from the menu of strategy options. If you have aggressive growth targets and are consistently meeting or exceeding your ROAS threshold, then you should primarily focus on growth initiatives, and sprinkle in a few efficiency optimizations to ensure that you’re not wasting spend. If you are not achieving your ROAS goal, you’ll want to focus primarily on efficiency optimizations. If you fall somewhere in the middle of these two scenarios, you should select an even mix of growth and efficiency efforts.
xAd’s first step was to expand its use of location data. “We wanted to move beyond just the where, and use location data to define the who and the what of audience targeting,” Monica Ho, xAd’s CMO, told GeoMarketing in 2015. After all, while a consumer’s proximity to a Denny’s can be significant, targeting someone who has been to and enjoys their local Denny’s will often prove more successful — whether or not they happen to be near the restaurant at the time they see the ad.

This chapter discusses how to establish goals to measure the success of our campaign. These should be directly tied to the stated objectives, as well as being measureable and achievable. It is important to track as many actions, goals, and engagement data as possible. This is what really drives understanding and insight from your analytics data and will allow you to assess which campaigns are delivering the goods.


In Google Analytics you can do this by using the same path we detailed before: Traffic Sources > Search > Organic > Advanced filter. Enter a specific keyword or use the RegEx generator to cover all the possibilities that you have in mind. Make sure that you create at least two advanced filter: one that includes all your branded keywords, and another one that excludes them.

Jetzt beginnt der aufwändigste Teil der Konkurrenzanalyse: Sie müssen die Informationen beschaffen, die Sie laut Schritt 2 benötigen. Hierbei kommt viel manuelle Recherchearbeit auf Sie zu. Glücklicherweise gibt es viele Informationsquellen, die Sie überwiegend sogar kostenfrei nutzen können. Einige Ansatzpunkte für Ihre Recherche finden Sie in unserem Artikel zur Findung von Markt- und Branchendaten. Weitere Quellen, um Informationen für die Wettbewerbsanalyse zu finden, sind:
It is dependent on the pre-analysis of the entire IP address space. There are more than 4 billion possible IP addresses, and detailed analysis of each of them is a Herculean task, especially in light of the fact that IP addresses are constantly being assigned, allocated, reallocated, moved and changed due to routers being moved,[6] enterprises being assigned IP addresses or moving, and networks being built or changed. In order to keep up with these changes, complex algorithms, bandwidth measurement and mapping technology, and finely tuned delivery mechanisms are necessary.[7] Once all of the IP space is analyzed, each address must be periodically updated to reflect changes in the IP address information, without invading a user's privacy. This process is similar in scale to the task of Web spidering.
Because someone who is looking for something that specific is probably a much more qualified searcher for your product or service (presuming you're in the blogging space) than someone looking for something really generic. And because long-tail keywords tend to be more specific, it's usually easier to tell what people who search for those keywords are really looking for. Someone searching for the head term "blogging," on the other hand, could be searching it for a whole host of reasons unrelated to your business.
Local plumbers can’t provide their services even three counties over (let alone three states over), and a juicy burger wouldn’t exactly hold up well in express shipping. Some businesses rely only on local customers. As a result, they’ll want their PPC campaigns only to appear in the feeds and searches of users who are within a set distance from their home b3ase.

Geo-targeted campaigns offer a number of benefits to advertisers. The first, obvious though it may sound, is that by enabling brands to reach a location-specific audience in a particular region or city, target audiences are selected with greater precision, and wasted impressions are reduced. By focusing the campaign on the parts of a population for whom it’s most relevant, an advertiser can increase the propensity of consumers to click on their ad, ultimately driving up return on investment.
Reason: This metric can help you to know if you have well-organized content. Traffic generated from certain keywords can provide good insight into which pages a visitor typically sees as a result of that keyword query. In case you are using Google Analytics for measuring your visits, you can do it within the following path: Traffic sources > Search > Organic > Landing Pages as 1st dimension & 2nd dimension: Keyword.

Die Liste der eigenen Wettbewerber wird lang sein und es ist wichtig, sich zu fokussieren. Für eine ordentliche Wettbewerbsanalyse benötigen Sie mindestens ein bis drei Tage für Recherche und Aufarbeitung. Fangen Sie die Liste mit den Unternehmen an, die Ihnen spontan einfallen und aus Ihrer Sicht die größte Konkurrenz darstellen. Eine kurze Suche im Internet kann dabei helfen, weitere Unternehmen auszumachen, die potentielle Konkurrenten sind. Für einen guten Überblick reicht es, wenn am Ende fünf bis acht zu analysierende Unternehmen übrig bleiben, die Sie untersuchen und bewerten möchten.
Another method is to track your competitors’ links. Content marketing is often done in unison with link building. Your competitors most likely create content on blogging sites. Within the articles they submit, there are external backlinks that point back to their own websites. Those links can be followed like a trail of breadcrumbs to track what they’ve been up to. Moz and Majestic are tools that are great for doing this. Here’s a look at what Moz found when I looked up Easel.ly, an infographics company.

Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann auch mit einfachen Mitteln kostengünstig intern oder extern aufbereitet werden und liefert umfangreiche Informationen zu den Unternehmen, die in der eigenen oder vergleichbaren Branchen tätig sind. Die Konkurrenzanalyse kann dabei helfen, eigene Stärken und Schwächen besser einzuschätzen (SWOT-Analyse), strategische Entscheidungen zu treffen oder die eigene Marketing- und Vertriebsstrategie zu überdenken.

Die SWOT-Analyse ist ein sehr mächtiges Werkzeug – nicht nur, um deine eigenen Strategien anhand deiner Stärken und Schwächen zu optimieren. Diese Vorgehensweise eignet sich auch hervorragend, um mehr über deine Konkurrenten herauszufinden. Manchmal stellt sich erst durch eine SWOT-Analyse im Rahmen einer Konkurrenzanalyse heraus, warum dein Konkurrent eine ganz bestimmte Strategie des Marketings oder des Vertriebs anwendet. SWOT beruht auf jeweils zwei inneren und äußeren Faktoren:

Using geo-targeting, you use smart marketing tactics. A great example of a successful use of area segmenting is evo, an e-commerce sporting goods store. When they took the leap to open up three brick and mortar stores. Their first step was to send out an email blast for a $200 shopping trip to users in the area. Though the campaign had a 58% conversion on mobile users, the campaign wasn’t as effective at driving traffic to their store fronts.
Working in an industry with variable revenue-per-lead, and not having direct access to that client’s revenue data, I was surprised during an EOY debriefing to learn that PPC saw a 500% ROI in the previous year. Meanwhile, I had spent months stressing about a climbing CPA and shifting conversion rates. This revelation instigated a deeper conversation about ROI and opened the door to request data about lead quality on an ongoing basis.
Wenn Sie ein Unternehmen gründen, setzen Sie bei einer Wettbewerbsanalyse andere Schwerpunkte, als wenn Sie die Position Ihres Unternehmens im Markt bestimmen. Im ersten Fall wird die Analyse umfassender ausfallen, da Sie sich gegenüber den Konkurrenten neu behaupten müssen. Geschickte Strategien beim Markteintritt haben einen nachhaltigen Einfluss auf den Erfolg.
Not only did this information give a more accurate picture of lead cost, but it identified another side-effect of optimization that neither we nor the client had previously anticipated: PPC was playing a much larger role in driving revenue than ever before! More qualified leads were coming in at a lower cost, but the revenue-to-lead ratio also jumped significantly. As a result, ROAS for PPC had nearly doubled with the increased spend in 2017.
Daneben gibt es noch eine weitere Art der Konkurrenz durch Lieferanten. Wenn diese plötzlich ihre eigenen Materialien oder Halbfertigerzeugnisse zu den Produkten verarbeiten, die Ihr Unternehmen herstellt, werden sie zur direkten Konkurrenz. Der gleiche Effekt tritt ein, wenn Sie ein Handelsunternehmen führen und ein Hersteller Ihrer Waren vertreibt diese selbst. Informieren Sie sich deshalb auch über Ihre Lieferanten, wenn Sie eine Konkurrenzanalyse erstellen.
When they started to open these “stores”, it didn’t make sense to advertise to everyone because not everyone would be near the pop-up stores. So instead, they only advertised within a small radius of their shop. By using geo-targeting to drive traffic to their shops, they were able to save money and resources while still achieving success in their pop-up shops.

Deine Konkurrenten sind ein zentraler Bestandteil deiner Analyse. Deine Aufgabe besteht darin herauszufinden, wer die anderen Marktteilnehmer sind, wer den Markt dominiert, welche Wettbewerber welche Nische besetzen und so weiter. Finde im Rahmen der Konkurrenzanalyse Informationen zur Rivalität unter den Marktteilnehmern und untersuche, mit welchen Instrumenten andere Unternehmen sich besonders gut positionieren.
When it comes to advertising on Google Ads, consider the real estate adage: "Location, location, location!" Regardless of how great your ad is, it probably won't perform as well if it doesn't appear in the right places. Reach your customers where they are and where your business can serve them by using Google Ads location targeting. You can set and then adjust your location targeting settings at any time.

Anschließend ist sie alle ihre Kollegen durchgegangen, die sie aus Fortbildungen und von Fachtagungen her kannte. Vervollständigt hat sie die Liste ihrer Mitbewerber schließlich durch einen Blick ins regionale Anwaltsverzeichnis. „Ich habe mir zu jedem einzelnen notiert: Was kann der besser? Was kann ich besser? Was macht der besonders gern und was nicht? Wo gibt es Überschneidungen zu meinem Angebot? Wo kann ich denen gefährlich werden und wo die mir?“ Ihre Informationen hat Tatjana Schmelzer teils aus persönlichen Gesprächen gewonnen, teils über die Internetseiten der Kanzleien.
Eine vollständige Konkurrenzanalyse beziffert die gesamte Anzahl der direkten Mitbewerber und enthält Angaben zu den Marktanteilen der Konkurrenten. Ziel ist es dabei, die besonders einflussreichen Mitbewerber zu bestimmen. Wenn Sie keine Angaben zu den Marktanteilen finden, dann versuchen Sie doch in Ihrer Konkurrenzanalyse die Marktanteile der 3-5 größten Wettbewerber zu schätzen.

Suchmaschinenoptimierung, oder englisch search engine optimization (SEO), bezeichnet Maßnahmen, die dazu dienen, dass Inhalte wie Webseiten, Videos und Bilder im organischen Suchmaschinenranking in den unbezahlten Suchergebnissen (Natural Listings) auf höheren Plätzen erscheinen. Durch das bewusste Beeinflussen der Suchmaschinenplatzierungen von zum Beispiel Videos auf der Plattform YouTube oder Webseiten auf Google können diese besser gelistet werden und neue Reichweite generieren.
