How to choose focus keyword for the post?
Hi friends,
Iím new to blogging. Thanks to all your support, my blog design is now completed. ( Earlier I got feedback about speed issues). Now, I need your help/support on SEO.

Iím using Yoast plugin to set focus keywords for posts and to improve readability of the post.

Here are my queries.

How to choose the focus keyword for a post?

I read many articles related to SEO. Most of them says to use less competitive keywords. I used the SERPS keyword research tool to search for keywords. It shows volume, CPC and Value.

Should I use keywords with low volume? Are they less competitive?

Suppose, if there is no metrics available for a keyword, then I should not use that keyword?

Please provide support.

Before getting into KEYWORD RESEARCH, you should know who was your competitor’s.
Do you have a list? If so, then analyze their blog pattern,
How are they publishing new contents,
in what frequency,
their social presence,
etc. etc.
Then, get the list of their top-ranked pages using basic Google Search, Buzzsumo, and SEMRUSH.

If you do this process, you will get the list of target keywords for the first few articles on your blog. Then start writing more quality contents than your competitor and duplicate their SEO strategy.

All the best,

make sure your focus keyword is in the following

first paragraph
h1 heading
last paragraph

Whatever post you write try to find keywords according to that post. Then check its volume per month on semrush and then check it competition in Google search by typing that keyword between semi colons. If the searches come out to be less than 15000 then surely you can place your keyword easily.
