Use Google Webmaster Tools to see through the walls …

Well, no quite through the wall – but Google Webmasters Tools allows you to see something that no other service, product or person could do.

It allows you to see top search queries in which your site appeared on google organic results (impressions – even though no one clicked on your link, you still know what people were searching for!) as well as top clicked queries that generated the most clicks (traffic). How cool is that?! This will allow you to see which phrases you started to rank for (even though people haven’t clicked on your site yet).

This cool feature will let you discover trends and niches on internet – something that people are searching for, even though no one clicked on your site. It’s like getting inside googleplex and peeking on their closely guarded databases.

And it’s free of course!

Use ranking accelerator keywords to boost your organic ranking

From my constant SEO research across different industries I found that top ranking websites has certain keywords repeatedly occur in their Title tag, page URL, page description, top of page contents or anchor text of backlinks.
I name these keywords “ranking accelerators”. These are the keywords that Google love to see and it seems to give webmaster extra “brownie” points. The good thing is that it doesn’t matter what your website is about. What matters is that Google seems to give more trust to sites that are using them, as these keywords seems often to come together with the quality informative contents. So here is the list (constantly updating).

Ranking Accelerator Keywords. The ones in bold are more powerful.
