Don’t write an article without doing thorough keyword research to know what you’re in for. The reason is not every keyword rank on Google. Keyword is a word people are using on search engines, not what you feel like writing.

Keyword is like a password on a website. If you get it wrong the article becomes an isolated homeland in the woods. Make due diligence to research debt for less competitive and low volume keywords. Like, 1000 searches per month to allow you rank high.
