To start off with let me ask you a question; what is the way that you choose a particular keyword to target and attract potential customers to your website?
Your answer may include the search volume and also the query intent formulae which is nothing but understand whether a particular searcher can turn out to be a potential client.
We agree with both the answers above but let me add one more element to your list; how difficult would it be to rank the keyword in the place you want it to be? There is hardly any point to target a high volume keyword which will not end you into the first page listing in Google, right?
In case you are not really ready with all this and on a search for a SEO consultant Bangalore to help you out, think again.
Here we have come with a solution where you can find out the determining factor as to how difficult it would be to rank for a particular key word. It’s rather easy and can be done by putting the keyword in Ahrefs keywords explorer.
Here, we will be giving you to ways in which you would be able to check your keyword rank difficulty using Ashrefs and how you can go about it all.
1. Key in a “Seed” Keyword into the Ahrefs’ Keyword Explorer
Just put in the main keyword in the search box and click on the “Explore” button and then choose the “Phrase Match” button to make sure that your keyword is there in the results and the search page.
2. Check the Keyword Difficulty Score for all the Keywords that you have
You would be easily be able to check the keyword difficulty score where the search volume- “Volume” and the key =word difficulty score- “KD” is mentioned in the list. The greater the keyword difficulty score, harder it will be to rank the same in the top results in the search engines.
The determining factor which helps you understand the maximum difficulty score that you should aim at.
Ashrefs can help you in here too, where the steps are pretty easy.

Do not forget to check your chosen keywords again when the last step is done with to ascertain that we are in the right track and then also check on the query intent and volume factors to do away with last minute damages.
Do you target higher KD keywords at all?
