Keyword Gap Analysis: How to Profit from Your Competitors’ Keywords

For me, one of the hardest parts of SEO content writing is finding the right keywords to optimize for. I have an amazing team of content writers and SEO copywriters who can easily write content that ranks.

But what should it rank for?

That’s the million dollar question.

You see, we make dozens of keyword analyses at Idunn, both for our in-house content and for our clients’ SEO content. It’s not hard to find keywords in general. Google Ads Planner can help you find keywords with low to medium difficulty and a decent search volume.
