Keyword Competition Metrics: Measure Keyword Competitiveness

Dan Thies writes a very interesting article about Keyword Competition Metrics where he analyses how you can define the level of competition for a search term. Dan looks primarily at three types of competition data:

  • How many sites/pages are competing?
  • How well linked are the top ranked sites?
  • How much are people paying for PPC traffic?

Keyword Competition

The number of results given by Google for the query is a bad estimation of competitivity. Dan suggests to search for intitle:search inanchor:search instead, because your competitors may use the keywords in the title and in the anchor texts.

Orion has also posted a good post on SEW forums about Keyword Competitiveness. He points out that keyword competitiveness means different things for different people:

  • Some have stated that search results is a measure of keyword competitiveness (KC).
  • Others argue whether or not the search volume from Overture or WordTracker is a fair indicator of keyword competitiveness.
  • Many claim that the search results from Google combined with the keyword volume from Overture provides a better estimate of the competitiveness of a term or phrase(s).
  • Even others use a composite metric from keyword tracking tools coming from dissimilar meta engines. This is equivalent to combining dissimilar analytics and business intelligence metrics from dissimilar media outlets.

Interesting subject, stay tuned as we'll talk about it on that blog in the future.

Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI)

Is Google using Latent Semantic Indexing? Read the last Axandra's newsletter to better understand how Google could be giving more weight to latent semantic indexing (LSI) in its latest ranking algorithm update:

  • What is latent semantic indexing?
  • Why is this important to your SEO activities?
  • Where can I find further information about LSI?

Latent semantic indexing helps search engines to find out what a web page is all about. It basically means to you that you shouldn't focus on a single keyword when optimizing your web pages and when getting links.

The web pages on your web site should be related and focus mainly on a special topic while using different words that describe the topic. Use variations of your keyword and synonyms. That makes it easier for search engines to determine the topic of your site.

Should You Use Targeted Keywords in URL?

As you know search engines algorithms look at over 100 criteria. If you read forums about Search Engine Optimization, you will see that some SEO recommend to use keywords in URL and other claim it is useless. The problem is that no one have made real test (or have not published it?). We have decided to run some tests in order to make sure that words in URL is one criteria for search engines algorithms.

Below are the tests we made

As we were only focused on one item (keyword in URL) we have decided:

  • To create webpages with the same look and feel of our other webpages
  • To create webpages with the "word" rkpatjfg in the URL (directories and file names)
  • To avoid the word rkpatjfg in the body text and head text of these pages
  • To link to these new pages without using the word rkpatjfg in the anchor text

Before we started our test, we searched for rkpatjfg in Google, MSN beta, Yahoo!, Ask Jeeves, Lycos, Teoma, WiseNut, Exalead (AOL.fr) and Voila. There were no results on these search engines.

A few days later, Google, MSN beta and Exalead indexed our new web pages. Yahoo! also indexed one of them. So we did the same search for rkpatjfg on these search engines.

Results

See all the results in our search engine ranking report.

  • Google, MSN (beta), Yahoo! and Exalead take into account the words in the URL.
  • The other search engines (Ask Jeeves, Lycos, Teoma, WiseNut and Voila) have not yet crawled our webpages so at this time we do not know yet. Anyway, as soon as their spider crawls our webpages we will update this article.

Google  MSN Beta  Yahoo!  Exalead (used by AOL.fr)

Conclusions

  • This test shows that keywords in URL are taken into account by Google, MSN (beta), Yahoo! and Exalead algorithms.
  • This test does not show how much it helps for your ranking compared to other criteria.
  • When constructing URL directory and URL file names, use targeted and relevant keywords.
  • If you use several keywords in your URLs, use hyphens as dividers and not underscores. Read our article about Hyphens and Underscores
  • One month after our web pages were added, the following search engines has not yet crawled our test pages! Ask Jeeves, Lycos, Teoma, WiseNut, Voila.
  • Google, MSN beta and Exalead were the fastest to index our new web pages.

Related articles and tools we have used for this test

  • Ranking report is generated by Agent Web Ranking
  • Google test : hyphen or underscore
  • Robotstats is a free application analysing the web robots on your site
  • Search Engine Relationship Chart (tm) from Bruceclay.com
  • If you have tested this query on other search engines, feel free to give the results in this post's comments
