46 Yoga Studio Website Keywords for More Yoga Website Traffic

In addition to targeting keywords surrounding the types of yoga you teach and your geographic location(s), you can expand your target keyword list to include yoga postures.

In my post 1 Tip for More Website Visitors to Your Yoga Website I set out tips and steps for choosing keywords for your yoga studio website.

In this post I set out additional ideas for keywords to attract traffic to your yoga website.

The following table sets out 46 keywords for yoga postures.  Note, many of the keywords are duplicates because I set out the search volume data for both “posture” and “pose”.

What does “broad”, “phrase”, “exact”, and “# of Competing Web Pages” mean?

  • A broad search means the words in the search phrase appear in any order.  For example, a search phrase such as “Yoga Chicago Iyengar” is a broad search phrase for “Iyengar Yoga”.
  • A phrase search means the words in the search phrase appear in that order, but additional words may surround the search phrase.  For example,  a search such as “Chicago Iyengar Yoga” is a phrase search term for “Iyengar Yoga”.
  • An exact search means the entire search is exactly the search terms listed.  For example, the search “Iyengar Yoga” is the exact search for “Iyengar Yoga”.

# of Competing Web Pages means the number of Web Pages on the Internet that contain the words in the search phrase.  The lower the number of competing Web pages, the less competitive it is and therefore, generally, easier to rank well in the search engines.  However, if the websites on page 1 are very competitive, then it may still be difficult to rank on page 1 of Google even if there are not many competing Web pages.

Generally, a search term with fewer than 30,000 competing Web pages is not terribly competitive.  Fewer than 5,000 is not competitive.

About the above list of keywords

The above list of keywords is far more general than keywords targeting the types of yoga you teach and your geographic location.  However, once you exhaust geographic-specific keywords, the above list should give you ideas for new website content to publish and keywords to target that, with some SEO, will attract website visitors.

I would ensure that you rank well for your geographically-based keywords before going after more general keywords. The reason for this is that geographically-based keywords will attract more relevant and targeted website traffic.  In other words, geographically-based website visitors are more likely going to contact you and attend your yoga studio.

This list is intended for inspiration and ideas rather than your next SEO step.
