I would setup HitTail. It will provide you 'suggestions' to target further keywords.


Here is a thread, discussing hittail further -

If you business local so, local directory and websites are good for you. You can use Google External keyword tool for keyword research.

Try to think of specific aspects of your electronics business and the people who would be attracted to those areas. Most businesses want to be as wide as possible, thinking that that will get them the most customers.

In fact, narrowing your message can have a very beneficial effect. People will resonate with a message that speaks more specifically to them. On or off-line, a more narrow message will attract more people, assuming your message addresses a market need.

Default Keyword spying

Do a Google search on one of your products. When you get the results page, look for the blue "cache" link under the listing on the Google page for your competitor. Google will show you which keywords on that page were used to draw Google's attention (they will be color coded).

Now, with that in mind, keywords are just part of the search engine puzzle and the old days of putting lots and lots of keywords in the keyword meta tag are pretty much over.

Also, keep in mind a high percentage of searches are actually multiple word searches, so "french fried lima beans" gets a better result that just "beans." Think of the phrases your customers would use to find you. You may want to visit www.wordtracker.com and use that service, which helps develop a keyword scheme for you and it's easy to use.

There are plenty of great comments in the search engine section of this forum to get you pointed in the right direction.

Google Keyword tool is good, but does having too many tags in my metadata hurt my SEO?
