When you start writing a piece of content, you start with the main keyword, right?
How do you know what supporting points you’ll need?
What do you need to elaborate on to make sure that you’re creating the most relevant content that will rack up the most views?
How do you know for sure that you’ll rank?
This is where LSI keywords come in handy.
LSI keywords stand for Latent Semantic Indexing keywords. Think of it as a list of related keywords under the main keyword’s umbrella.
Now, instead of having just one or two main keywords, you can also have a list of related keywords with just as much search volume and stack it up to build a rank pulling article.
“The more LSI keywords you embed into your content — the better Google understands what your page is about.” Brian Dean – Founder of Backlinko
Let’s say you are writing an article about apple. Just apple, and you will raise the question if you are talking about apple in terms of fruits or technology.
The point is when you have LSI keywords in your article, it increases relevancy and build context.
This way, search engines can better understand what your article is about thus ranking it better. In other words, LSI keywords are the key point of your ranking formula.
Well, the obvious path would be to search for your keyword on Google and take note of the related searches.
Those are the terms that you can be sure that Google associates with your main keyword.
But doing that isn’t practical in the long run nor does it gives you much information other than a confirmed association from Google.
There is a unique keyword research tool on the market now that focuses strictly on LSI keywords. Let me give you a run-through.
A popular LSI keyword research tool, LSIGraph is our sister site who has a database of 22 million (and counting) LSI keywords.
Simply type in your main keyword and you’ll be served with a list of related keywords. With their premium features you’ll also get access to keyword search volume, cost per click (CPC), competition, and LSV.
Let’s break these down into English.
Search Volume – You can know how frequently the phrase was searched in the last 12 months. This is important to make sure your keywords are up-to-date and relevant to your audience’s interest.
Cost-per-click – Not only content creation needs keyword planning, ads need it too. The CPC data is extracted from Google AdWords so you can be sure of how valuable a keyword is.
Competition – This shows you how difficult or how easy it is to rank for this keyword.
Latent Semantic Value – LSV takes into account the search volume, keyword competitiveness, and traffic potential from LSIGraph’s database from over six years of service. They created this algorithm that can tell you precisely how valuable an LSI keyword is. The number ranges from 0 to 100, with 100 being the best and 0, the worst. Keywords with a high LSV will be easy to rank, relevant, and draws in a bunch of audiences.
It can help you rank and rank high.

Two weeks had passed and you log into your analytics and see there is still no huge pickup in traffic… well, you might still be missing just one thing.
If you are looking to further build the contextual relevance for your content beyond LSI Keywords, the issue might be with the lack thereof certain points that make up the contextual whole.
In other words, a content gap and usually we will do this manually, analyzing our own content to the top-ranking SERP results to see if there are any points we have missed.
