Step 1: Come up with a keyword idea. This is very important before jumping into our keyword competition analysis. So make sure that you have your keyword ideas ready! I do have mentioned this on my other post which you can read “How to Do A Keyword Research“.
Step 2: After you have several keyword ideas, then you can jump into Google.com where our analysis will take place. Once we are on Google search bar, you need to add (“) at the front and at the end of your keyword, then click search. Example like the images shown below:
Step 3: Go to the bottom of the page, and click on the very last page (if any), and keep doing this until the very last page.
Then you can check the results on top. That’s the real competition! Below is the exact competition of “Baby Toys Made in USA”. Currently there are 47 competing pages on Google search engine under that particular keyword or search term.
