What Is Jaaxy?
Jaaxy is a keyword tool that will easily help you seek out low-competition keywords that will help you rank high up in the search engines.
As well as finding keywords, Jaaxy also has many other cool features, such as a “site rank” tool, so that you can track what position you’re currently in for your chosen keywords.
You can also save lists of keywords, search for affiliate programs and keep an eye out on the top ranking competitors for a specific keyword – to name just a few things.
Why Do You Need A keyword Search Tool?
If you’re going to start an online business or simply start a blog that you’d eventually like to make money from, keyword research is going to be a vital component to generating organic traffic for you and having the right tool at your disposal is very important.
Because targeting low-competition keywords will give you a great chance of ranking high in the search engine, (as long as you’re providing quality content).
If you’re ranked high in the search engine – this will equate to more traffic to your site.
If your site or blog has no traffic, no one is discovering you or your content. As such, you’ll want to target a specific keyword per post that you do on your website.
Many people choose to use google adwords free keyword tool and to start off, there’s nothing wrong with it.
However, google adwords keyword planner, can be confusing and time consuming to use – I personally got bored & frustrated with it very quickly.
There are plenty more sophisticated search tools that give you considerable more information and as such, they will help you develop and grow your site and rank more effectively.
As Keyword research tools go, Jaaxy comes out top for me – often when you sign up or download a keyword search tool, it can often be complicated, but Jaaxy is simple to use from the start.
Jaaxy is ultra user friendly and simple to use an some of its unique features make it extra enjoyable to use… I will go over this in more detail further on in this review.
What Is Jaaxy? Jaaxy Keyword Tool Overview!
I’d like to run through some of my favourite features and explain why I find them useful.
The Keyword Tool:
The feature that I use most, is also the most obvious. That is the straight forward Keyword tool.
I’ve typed into the main search bar of Jaaxy, “Best Women Running Shoes.”
You can see our main search result outlined in green in the search above.
What this result actually means, while it may look confusing initially, is incredibly straight forward. See the green arrows above correspond to the answers below, left to right.
- Avg – 4359. –> The first number simply represents the total number of searches for this exact keyword in google every month.
- Traffic -742 –> This is the estimated number of visits your site could receive each month if your page makes page.1 on google for this keyword.
- QSR -122 —> This is the number of competing pages that also contain this exact keyword in google.
- KQI – Green —> Keyword quality indicator, if this is green, it’s good, yellow medium and red means you should steer clear.
- SEO score – 90 —> This score is based on traffic and competition combined and is an indicator to how easy, (or difficult) it will be to rank for the keyword in question. The closer the score is to 100 the better!
In general, you should go for a keyword with a traffic score rating of 50 or over and stick to a QSR, (competition) of under 300 when you first start a website, as this will give you a better chance of ranking.
I personally will look for a QSR as low as possible and as close to zero as I can.
BUT – Don’t Just Rely On The QSR score!
Make sure you check out your competition further, by checking out the competing pages in the search for your keyword – (simply type in your keyword into google and see what pages show up).
By looking through the pages ranking in the top positions, ask yourself if you have a chance of out ranking them at the moment.
How many comments do the posts have that come up, are the websites authority sites, have their posts been shared a lot on social media?
Another good way to check the website domain authority and page authority websites in the search results, is by downloading MOZ BAR, this is a free browser extension and easy to use.
In addition, sticking to a GREEN KQI (Keyword Quality Indicator) and an SEO score of 90+ is my personal preference – but everyone is has their own ideas and opinions on this.
If your unfamiliar with keyword research and any of this sounds confusing – there is a bunch of training explaining how to use the tool over at Jaaxy.
The closer the SEO score is to 100, the better.
Even in this case, there are no guarantees you will rank for the keyword you’ve targeted, as many factors will come into play, but it certainly gives you a considerably better chance.
A Second Example – Searching A Keyword In Jaaxy:
Let’s take a brief look at a second example – I looked up the keyword: “how to train a pug puppy”
As we can take from the data above for this keyword, this would be a potentially reasonable one to target.
Take a look at the results the arrows are pointing to above, from left to right.
Avg score is 120, (the amount of exact searches a month for this keyword.
Traffic score is 21, (the amount of traffic you could potentially expect to get for this keyword per month if you’re on the front page.
The QSR is 25, (the number of competing pages for this exact keyword)
The KQI is green (green means good to go – orange or red indicate you will have a harder chance ranking, red being the most difficult).
SEO score is 93 – (closer to 100 the better)
My next most used feature is the saved lists…
Finding keywords is suddenly so easy and quick, you may start finding it quite addictive searching for them.
The problem is, you end up with loads of keywords and if you write them down somewhere, chances are you’ll forget about them.
That’s where the saved lists come in handy. You can save lists of related keywords in lists of 50 at a time and then have multiple lists to choose from when it comes to creating your content.
You then have tonnes of pre-researched keywords ready to go.
The next feature is one of my ultimate favourites and that is “Site Rank”!
Site rank is a fantastic feature in Jaaxy, where you can search for keywords that you’re attempting to rank for and it will find where you are currently ranking in the google search, you can find out your present position.
For example: You simply do a search for a keyword you have recently targeted and it will let you know your present place in the google search for that keyword, (if it’s ranked!). So – position 14, page 2, for example!
This feature will also let you know how much your position has changed since last time you checked. (E.g. 8 places up or 5 places down). So, you can see your progress, which is a great way to keep track of how well you’re doing.
While this feature has made me scream and stamp my feet in a bad way at times in the past….(“Whhhat…. keyword not found in the first 20 pages!?!?!?!”)…
It’s also made me jump for joy…(“google page 1, in the first position wooohooo!!!”….). You get the picture.
It’s good to keep track of what pages are doing well and what are not and you can then start to learn what is working and what you need to improve on.
When a post I’ve done doesn’t seem to be moving up in the results after some time, I will go back in and make some changes and see how I can improve upon it.
The more experience you have, the more you learn how very small tweaks can sometimes make all the difference!
Lastly, there is an important feature that everyone should be using each time they consider targeting a keyword…
This is the “Search Analysis” feature…
You simply add your potential keyword in the search bar at the search analysis section and you can analyse the top 10 searches in Google, Bing and Yahoo for that exact keyword.
This is an ideal way for you to check out the competition for your keyword before you take the plunge.
This can also be done manually in Google, (as I mentioned earlier) which is called checking the SERPS!
SERPS simply stands for “search engine results pages.”
By typing your keyword directly into Google, you can then properly assess the competition on the first pages of Google, (or the SERPS).
Checking out your competition is a very important additional step because, just because Jaaxy tells you that a keyword has a low QSR, (low number of competing pages) – there could be a good reason behind this, (e.g. massive authority sites dominating the first page and no possibility of outranking).
If the competition is just too tough, this could put off many people bothering to target it – hence, the competing pages, (QSR) could be low for that reason.
Therefore, it’s worth always making sure – you check the SERPS first, before committing to a keyword!
So, those are my favourite and most used features and are all you need in terms of keyword research, organising your topics for content and keeping track your position in the Google search!
In addition to these features, Jaaxy also includes some training videos to get you started which I found really useful;
- a brainstorming section – which I haven’t used very much personally but know plenty who really find this useful;
- the alphabet soup technique, (which is basically an extension of the regular keyword tool but allows you to get a bit creative and give you some more in depth ideas)
- Plus, an area where you can do a search for affiliate programs related to your keyword or niche topic.
Would You Like To Have A Go Now?
Jaaxy also offers 30 free keyword searches, so you can check it out for yourself.
