Travel bloggers, this article is all about Google Ranking and finding the keywords you currently rank for. But, before we jump into the tips and “how to”, I have 5 questions for you.

  1. Do you know your Keywords?
  2. Do you know what Keywords you are ranking for?
  3. Do you know what position and page you are ranking for keywords in Google Search?
  4. Do you know the volume of each keyword (how many searches it get per month)?
  5. Do you know how much of the traffic you are getting from each keyword you rank for?

Lots of questions, I know. And why exactly am I asking? Because one of the essential elements of Google Ranking and SEO is picking the right keyword or words. Next, is ranking for those keywords.

Don’t worry! I’ve got some solutions for you!

It is absolutely necessary for a travel blogger to check their Google keyword ranking for target keywords on a regular basis. One of the most common mistakes bloggers make is that they write and publish articles without targeting any keywords at all.

I have suggestions for several online tools to use to check your target keyword position and Google Ranking.

How to Find the Keywords You Rank For

To improve your SEO and traffic to your website, you must find out which keywords have a high search volume and how competitive they are to rank for. This information allows you to work on using the strongest keywords in your blog posts and gives you a much higher likelihood of getting a better ranking in Google and other search engines.

In order to accomplish this goal, you need a tool that shows specific keyword ranking in Google’s search results without manually going through 100’s of search results and pages. Who has time for that?

Do It Yourself Solutions

Find Your Ranking Keywords in Google Search Console

The simplest way to find your keywords is to head to Search Console.

1. Go to search results on the left.

2. In the center window (near the top left) choose a date range.
3. Then choose the “average position” tab (under date range on right).

4. Scroll down and review Keywords and their “position” in search results. You can click on the “position” button to re-organize by highest and lowest page ranks keywords.

Based on Keywords determine which article it belongs to you on your site. Ideally, you want to push any articles that are on page 2 up to page 1, or articles on page 3 up to page 2, etc.

Find Your Ranking Keywords in Analytics

You can also find keywords you rank for, for specific articles through Google Analytics.

1. Head to Google Analytics > Acquisition > Search Console > Landing Pages on left side.

2. Click Through to any article and a new window will pop up showing the keywords you rank for, for specific articles.

Keyword Tools

In addition, there are several websites that offer keyword research. Moz and SEM Rush are two of the big guys. They offer everything you could ever want for SEO and keyword research. The downside is they are expensive. SEMRush offers a free 14-day trial and Moz offers a free 30-day trial. Both have SEO packages starting at $99 per month. Another higher-end option is Ahrefs, which offers a $7 trial offer and also has packages starting at $99 per month.

Serps offers a free 30-day trial and has programs that start at $49 per month. Along with search engine ranking, it also shows CPC and search volume data, for any keyword or phrase.

Are these expensive packages worth it? If you want to dive deep into the world of SEO, researching keywords and ranking, then yes they are worth it. If you are simply looking for a few keywords a month, they might not be.

The Keyword tool I use is Keysearch. It’s just $17 a month and offers lots of great reports and features. love this tool so much, I signed up as an affiliate, which means you can get an extra 20% off using the code KSDISC when you sign up.

I use Keysearch for my keyword research, running keyword reports to show what words I am ranking for as well as to find backlinks to my website and to find my top competitors.

I offer a product that includes a Keyword Report (with all the word/s you are ranking for) and two bonuses!  1) Backlinks Report (all websites linking to your website) and 2) Your Top 20 Competitors.
