Ok – back to our topic I will be explaining numbers 2 (check your market) and 3 (check for advertisers) from my last post.
A. Check your Market
1. Keyword research – First of all is you got to research. There are a lot of keyword analysis software out there like Wordtracker, NicheBot, etc., but what I am using right now is the tool at keyword research.
2. Number of searches and competing pages – When researching; be sure to check the number of searches per month and the number of competitors.
For example: Let’s have the keyword “camping???. From the results of my research the keyword “camping??? has 145,000 searches per month but a whopping 156,000,000 competitors. (left)
It’s hard to deal with that! So let’s dig deeper. “camping tent??? seems to be attractive. It has almost 11,500 searches per month but only 532,000 competing pages.
If we analyze this data, we could see that the keyword “camping??? has 1076 competing results per search ( 156,000,000 / 144,919 = 1,076 ) while “camping tent??? has only 47 competing pages per search ( 532,000 / 11,317 = 47 ). This makes “camping tent??? an easier keyword to optimize than the generic keyword “camping” There is the potential to make “camping tent” a good niche.
B. Check for advertisers
1. Does it have any potential to Adsense income?
Now let’s check Google if our keyword has advertisers.
we can see that there are advertisers for the keyword “camping tent???, gooutdoors.co.uk, backcountry.com, rei.com among them.This means the keyword “camping tent??? has potential for an Adsense revenue.
2. Does it have any potential to affiliate income?
After checking if there are advertisers, you should also check if there are affiliate programs. You can sign-up for as many affiliate programs available for camping tent.
Ok, so I hope I have explained the topics detailed enough for those who requested this. Until next time!
