::: IN SUMMARY :::

This article shows that it is essential to write down all (or as many as you can come up with) of your keywords. Doing so will allow you to come up with a list of your most productive keywords as far as the amount of times they are searched for each day.

But keep in mind that just because one keyword phrase receives more daily searches than another doesn't always mean that the former is going to produce more visitors for YOU, nor does it mean that it is going to produce more revenue for YOU.

In fact, you will find in most cases that you should START your optimization process for keywords that receive less daily searches than the most common or obvious keyword phrases for your business.

The reason is twofold. First, these terms are easier to obtain top 10 rankings for and second, because in most cases they convert into sales better due to the fact that when people use these terms to search, they are ready to buy.
