Many people think that it is useful to look for branded keywords because brand names in keywords will help increase conversion rates. The people who input brand names as keywords have a higher chance of purchasing a product than people who search using generic keywords. Some research has shown that out of 100 search terms, 75 of them were brand names.
What does this mean to you? Should you only focus on brand terms in keywords? No…the right keyword techniques will use brand and non-brand terms.
What exactly does a brand term or non-brand term mean? Brand keywords are when the name of the site, trademark, or specific product or service is used. It doesn’t include product brand names the marketer has that are non-exclusive. Non-brand keywords don’t have any references to the marketer, the site, proprietary brands, or its trademarks.
Why are non-brand terms important? People use them to find the information they need. When Internet users type in keywords, people use both brand terms and non-brand terms. It is almost a 50-50 ration. Conversion rates are high for people who use brand terms at the beginning and end of the search process. The conversion was almost just as high for people who began searching with a non-brand term and ended with a brand term.
These numbers should tell you that using both of these terms will be important to the success of your business. Make sure to market your products both generally and in brand terms, and you will receive better results from paid and organic search.
