Keyword Research in German with a SEO Freelancer: How Much Does It Cost and What Are the Benefits?

Hi, I’m Corina. A German native SEO Freelancer. The keyword research with me costs CHF 3400.00.

On this page, I answer frequently asked questions about keyword research with a freelancer.

What does keyword research with a freelancer include?

My keyword research includes the following:

  • Up to 8 keywords for landing pages (also called service pages)
  • Up to 10 ideas for blog posts

You will receive the research in a Google Sheets file. The first sheet contains detailed instructions on how to interpret the data.

Here is how it looks:

You will receive instructions on how the keyword research is structured. I love asynchronous work. That’s why everything is precisely documented.
This is what the keyword list looks like.

Sounds good. What is the exact process for the keyword research project?

  1. You contact me via my contact form or on LinkedIn.
  2. We discuss your business via email or video call. It is important for me to understand what you do and how you differentiate yourself from the competition.
  3. I create the contract and the invoice for the deposit. The deposit is 30% of the project cost.
  4. You give me access to your Google Search Console. In the Google Search Console, I see which keywords your website already ranks for or which variations the customers use.
  5. Two weeks later, I send you the Google Sheet.
  6. We discuss the documents in your or my office in Zurich, by call, or via email.
  7. We decide if you want to implement the suggestions yourself or if I should do it for you.
  8. You receive the final invoice.

What are the benefits of keyword research?

With keyword research, we identify terms that

a) your customers use

b) are achievable for your website

Just looking at the results of a keyword tool is nice. But it requires human interpretation.

How long does keyword research take?

I need three weeks to complete your keyword research.

When is keyword research needed?

Keyword research is typically needed in the following situations:

  1. You launch your website and want to do SEO “right from the start”. This is a good approach and keyword research along with the SEO audit is an important foundation.
  2. You want to explore a new segment or service area.
  3. You want to start a blog and wonder what to write about. With keyword research, I provide you with 10 ideas. And these are ideas that are achievable for your website. There are also highly competitive blog titles. If you have a young website, it is a waste of effort to rank for these keywords. I am honest with you.

What happens after keyword research?

After keyword research, content should be created around the keywords.

We decide together if you want to do this yourself or if I should do it for you.

We create content briefs for each page and write the text.

Do you also do keyword research in other languages than German?

Besides German, I cover keyword research in Spanish and English. In my network, I have SEO freelancers who speak French, Hungarian, Catalan, and Icelandic. I can connect you with them or coordinate the project.

The price of CHF 3400.00 is per language.

Why should I do keyword research with a freelancer instead of an agency?

There are several advantages to doing keyword research with a freelancer rather than an agency. First, as a freelancer, I can offer a more personalised and individual service. I work directly with you to ensure that I understand your specific needs and goals. Second, as a freelancer, I have lower overhead costs than an agency, which means I can often offer my services at a more affordable price. Third, since I work independently, I have the flexibility to adjust my working hours to your needs, which can lead to faster results.
