Keyword Research : first step to SEO ( Beginner’s Tips )

Keyword Research - first step to SEO

Keyword Research referred to as the first step to SEO is a technique to find out the right search term internet users can use in a search engine ( google, bing, yahoo, etc. ) to find out subjects related to different topics you had on your blog.
Generally, it is a technique to read internet users' minds, suppose you had written a post on “How to start a blog” now coming to internet users can search “start a blog” or “steps to start a blog” or “how to start a blog in 2022” in search engines for same subjects. 
Now here comes the use of keyword research where you will analyze “which keyword is searched most of the time” and finally state that we should use a keyword that has high volume i.e. a large number of searches, as well as fewer competitions i.e. used by less number of blogger on your subject related blogs.
This will lead to appear your blog on the first page of the search engine leading to an increase in visitors to your blog as most internet visitors visit only those page that comes on the first page of their search engine.
There are various online tools that make your keyword research easy, some most common among them are as follows :
