Can We Use Rank Math as a Keyword Research Tool?

Let’s look at what Rank Math has to offer:

Can We Use Rank Math as a Keyword Research Tool? Rank Math SEO

1 Focus Keyword

The focus keyword is simply the search term that your post or page is optimized for in the search engines. If your post has been written so that it is optimized for that particular keyword, the audience will be more likely to locate it and find what they’re looking for.

Rank Math allows you to select up to 5 focus keywords per post. This means you can optimize your post for 5 different keywords and attract a lot more traffic as compared to what you were optimizing for 1 focus keyword. This option is available in both the free and the PRO version of Rank Math. If you try to add more focus keywordsRank Math would rather discard them. But, this limit is removed in Rank Math PRO allowing you to add unlimited focus keywords.

Rank Math can also help you discover more keywords by pulling in automatic keyword suggestions from Google. As you start typing letters in the Focus Keyword field, Rank Math will get you keyword suggestions from Google. From the list of keyword suggestions, click the keyword to add it to the Focus Keyword field. You can repeat this for adding more focus keywords and optimizing your content accordingly.
