How To Search For Keywords With Jaaxy And Alphabet Soup
Finding keywords for our blogs and websites is something that can keep you up at night At the same time it can be fairly easy depending on the tool you use and what information you are in search of. Using the Jaaxy keyword tool has a feature I will be showing you. Alphabet Soup. No, it is not soup but a great way to find long tail keywords for your blog or website.
Before I show you how this all works let me first explain a bit about Jaaxy and why it is one of the most advanced keyword tools available online today. So you have a good frame of reference on the topic
Jaaxy was developed by Wealthy Affiliate, a company dedicated to teaching people how to start and thrive with an online business specializing in AffIliate marketing. They created Jaaxy to help take the guesswork out of many of the time-consuming tasks used by marketers to create website content.
They designed it to provide many features besides just searching for keywords. For example here are a few of the main features Jaaxy Provides

Since I digressed a bit into The features Jaaxy offers, how about we get to the Alphabet soup information?
So What Is The Alphabet Soup Function?
Good question. The simple answer is, the ability to add a letter from the alphabet prior to or after your primary keyword or phrase and it displays many options for possible keywords to target. Changing the letter changes the search.
I also have an article about how to do this type of search using Google and Cross-referencing using Jaaxy. Here is the link if you are interested.- Finding Keywords Using Google
Let me show you how this works in Jaaxy
There are 2 Options to access the Alphabet Soup function.
Option 1 is for existing members of Wealthy Affiliate, they can just use the Jaaxy tab and select one of the options or do a search on the spot. Jaaxy was just integrated into the platform at the end of 2017.
Members get a reduced cost for a Jaaxy membership if they choose the Pro or Enterprise versions or they can get Jaaxy Lite for free as a premium member. Below is the Shot of the Jaaxy options within the Wealthy Affiliate Portal
Option 2 is for Non-members who simply want to use the tool without having to join Wealthy Affiliate. Inside Jaaxy once logged in see screenshot below and access the “Alphabet Soup” tab
Follow with me and I will show you how to make keyword research a bit less scary and more effective at the same time.
You can do your own FREE Jaaxy Search Right Here and follow along with me. You get 30 free searches and access to most of the features in Jaaxy for FREE- Enter your keyword in the box below and follow along with me
Once you open the tab you simply enter a keyword or phrase into the search bar and select “Find Keywords” In my example, I used the phrase “Keyword Search” .
Note In the Image above– The little blue dot, that is a letter indicator. You simply slide it to get to the next letter and the words below which are currently using the “A” as the alpha letter, they will change to correspond with the letter you choose. You can also scroll down the page and the letters will change along with the keywords to match.
In the example below I slid the letter indicator to “M” and received many more options for keywords below that have an “M” word as part of the keyword.
Now let’s look at this in a little more detail. Once you find a keyword you like by using the letter slider in the case below I used “T”, you can then search Jaaxy for the specific results for that keyword and related keywords just by selecting “search on this” on the right side of the display.
What happens next is Jaxxy will enter search mode and do a keyword search just as if you manually entered it in the “search” option instead of Alphabet Soup. The results will display the data you need to decide if you have a good keyword for an article.
Below are the results displayed of the Jaaxy search from above. The option you selected in the “search on this” button is listed at the top of the results since it is the most relevant to your query. So what exactly do the numbers mean? well I will explain below
In the above image, I have put a red box around the main options of the data you need to look at for this search. The rule I follow for ranking well in SERPS (Search Engine Results Page) is the +100 -100 rule. Which uses the data from the AVG column and QSR column as shown above.
The +100-100 Rule is this. The AVG column is the average number of searches this keyword receives per month. And the QSR is the “Quoted Search Results” or in other words, Your competition. The number of websites trying to rank for the same keyword. Make sense?
We at Wealthy Affiliate call the +100 – 100 rule the low hanging fruit for keywords, meaning you find a keyword that has some traffic, in this case over 100 AVG and You look for QSR or your competition to be under 100. This is a method used to rank well in Searches because you have a greater chance to rank on page 1 because of less competition and you can benefit from the traffic to your site that way.
In the results above, you have an AVG of 455 and a QSR of 55. That is perfect for following our +100 -100 rule. As a bonus, you get a 95% chance to rank on page 1 if you use this keyword as indicated in the SEO column. Real quick let me cover the remaining columns and what they mean then I will further explain how this data helps you
The Traffic column is an educated guess by Jaaxy indicating the amount of traffic you can expect per month if you achieve page 1 rankings. It is not an exact science since you may be in slot 10 on page 1 which gets less traffic than slot 1 for example. It is a great indicator for you of what is potential for your keyword.
In the Example above the Traffic column only has 78. So you may think that is not much traffic to depend on right? sure you are right but here is the deal. Google will rank you better with the lower hanging keywords and as a result, you will end up ranking better overall as a site once your website is mature and established as an authority.
The other reason this helps is that you will be creating many articles with unrelated keywords, and the aggregate of all the traffic adds up fast. You also end up with more user and reader interaction with your articles as a result of ranking better. Which is a huge plus in the eyes of Google.
The Big “G” likes the interaction with your content. Comments create additional content to your site and show that you have provided value and as a result, you will get rewarded.
The SEO column is a 1-100 scale of a reasonable chance to rank page 1 based on several behind the scenes factors Jaaxy uses. I can say by experience, this is pretty accurate.
Once you have been established and are seeing good results in ranking you can change the numbers and take on more competition.
Here is a Video showing the entire process from above
How This Helps You
So the results used in the example have indicated that we have a good chance to rank well and get some decent traffic with this “SEO Keyword Search Tool”, so you could use this and format an article about this topic and provide good value to your readers and probably by rank well.
An additional bonus of how this helps, is by finding other results in the same search when they are displayed, in the figure above the last results displayed in the image are “free keyword search tool” that sounds like a great keyword to me, and the stats are even better than the one we selected to search on, there is more competition so you have to take that into consideration but my point is that you could use this word and also do well.
So we have shown you 2 keyword examples just from a simple Alphabet Soup Demo. There are many more options available in the Alphabet soup results, but we selected ours to use for this example. So as you can see, you could find hundreds of choices to pick from and in a few minutes you can jot down many post ideas.
Change up the keyword phrase to something totally different and start again as long as it relates to your niche. This is an incredibly valuable tool when used properly.
