Ahrefs contributor Mateusz Makosiewicz has published an article highlighting eight important types of keywords for SEO.

He says, “We’ll take a look at the types of organic keywords everyone interested in SEO should know.

Seed keywords are words or phrases that you can use as the starting point in a keyword research process to unlock more keywords.
