Raleigh List of Top Keywords

Whenever the topic of keywords come up, people are always curious to know what people are searching for in Google. While there is a lot of data to discern when putting together an SEO plan, sometimes it is just interesting to look at the raw information.

Data derived from Ahrefs.com on December 9, 2020I was able to run a simple request and that was for all keyword searches utilizing the keyword term – Raleigh. Below you will find the top 500 results.

Now, to be fair, there were a few keywords that I chose to redact because they had no value to this post and because I did not feel appropriate to publish. My blog, my rules.

raleigh searches
These searches occur nationwide. Many are googling here in the city so there is a high concentration while others are searching Raleigh specific terms from all across the country.

What I find endlessly interesting, and maybe because I am an SEO geek, is some of these terms come out of nowhere because of news stories and recent events while others are perennial and have been apart of these related terms for years.

It is also a good lesson in Local SEO. For example, you can see that some services and stores, people are constantly adding the specific addendum “raleigh” because they know exactly what they want. From Craigslist, to weather and even the news they wish to consume.

Some notable items:

  • “raleigh” all by itself, shows up at number 5
  • “raleigh weather” has twice the amount of searches as “weather raleigh”
  • “city of raleigh water” has a Paid advertising estimated cost per click of about dix dollars
  • Even though there are national brands and search engines have been able to refine their ability to provide a local result for brands that have nationwide locations, people still add the city modifier to their searches
  • Not all terms are for our great city. “raleigh bikes” is a brand name
