Keyword research is integral to a successful digital marketing strategy. It empowers you to discover actionable intelligence about your search landscape.  The first place you can utilize keyword research is on your existing pages. Before you can begin to create keyword rich content, optimize the content you have.  This is done by updating titles and meta tags to include your chosen keywords. As well as utilizing those keywords within the actual content of your site’s pages.
