Keyword research can be the difference between a successful blog and one that goes nowhere, but it often seems as if many bloggers think it’s something that doesn’t apply to them, or is “only for SEO.” To the contrary, keyword research goes way beyond search engine optimization, and is all about discovering what real live people are actively interested in.

With that in mind, Copyblogger associate editor Jonathan Morrow and I have put together a 5-part comprehensive guide to keyword research for bloggers that walks you though the entire process using real-life niche examples.
