Keywords

Words which people use to search for products or services without knowing the names of businesses. These words reflect on the function or speciality of the businesses.

For example: If an individual is going to attend a birthday party for an infant. And he does not know what s/he should buy, in that case a search on google with ‘gifts for infants’ will provide her/him search results of businesses that specializes in gifts for infants available on businesses like Toys r us, Carter, Walmart etc.

Identifying keywords of a business is an important online marketing strategy to place an advertisement at right time, at right place and to the right audience. In the above case the keywords could be gifts+infants, birthday+party+gifts.
