How To Do Effective SEO Keyword Research For A Niche Website?

I built many websites when I first started out, pretty much all of them never saw more than a handful of visitors each day. I thought I had done everything right when building the site and could never understand why it didn’t worked out the way I’d planned. There was probably a number of things that I’d done wrong along the way, but looking back the most important thing I’d messed up was my keyword research.

My keyword research technique at the time basically consisted of me guessing what I thought people were likely to type in Google when searching for something within my niche. It’s not difficult to see what I was doing wrong. Needless to say, unless I got extremely lucky, my website would be doomed from the very start. Even if I did managed to rank number one in Google for one of my guessed keywords there was no guarantee it would bring me any traffic. I needed some solid evidence – I should have done some real effective keyword research before I even considered building a website.

Presuming you have chosen your niche (whether you choose a niche based on keyword research or chose your keywords based on a niche is something I’ll talk about in a later post) your next priority should be targeting the right keywords.

The type of keywords you choose to target will depend somewhat on the type of site you are planning to build. A web site that sells a local service would need to target a different set of keywords compared to a website specifically made to sell an affiliate product to a global niche market. NicheHunt is all about profiting from building successful niche websites, therefore we will use the following as an example.

Let’s imagine you wish to start a website about acoustic guitars (your niche), it’s going to be an informative and entertaining site, but your main intention is to sell acoustic guitars through an affiliate such as Amazon. Now we know this information, we should focus our attention on the “Buying Keywords” associated with acoustic guitars.

“Buying” Keywords

“Buying keywords” are the keywords which imply that the person searching is actively looking to purchase a specific product online, rather than just seeking information. This increases the likelyhood that anybody who visits our site via those keywords will buy something. A couple of examples would be;

affordable KEYWORD
bargain KEYWORD
best KEYWORD
best price KEYWORD
buy KEYWORD
buy KEYWORD online
cheapest KEYWORD
cheapest KEYWORD online
cheap KEYWORD
KEYWORD best price
KEYWORD cheap
KEYWORD compare prices
KEYWORD for sale
KEYWORD for sale online
KEYWORD comparison
KEYWORD review

Replace “KEYWORD” with “ACOUSTIC GUITAR” and you get the idea.

When I mentioned earlier that we are going to focus our attention on the buying keywords, that doesn’t mean we are simply going to take for granted or assume that the word “acoustic guitar” followed by “best price” is going to be a great keyword for us. We need to back up it up with solid evidence, and that’s when we use the Google Keyword Tool.

A vital tool when doing keyword research is Google itself, in particular the Google Keyword Tool. I won’t go into too much detail on how to use it here, this isn’t a technical guide as such, but I will share the basics, as that is all you will really need for now.

It helps when using the Google Keyword tool if you have a Google account, but you can still use it if you don’t. Just type your main keyword into the field at the top of the page, centre left, marked “word or phrase”, in our case type in the phrase “acoustic guitar”. There is a tick box underneath that saying something like “only show results closely related to my search term”, I’m going to leave that un-check for this example, but you may want to experiment with it yourself later on. Now click the “Search” button underneath. You may be asked to fill in a captcha, then your results should appear within a few seconds.

Now, before you get carried away and start salivating over all those lovely keywords, take a look at the left hand column about a quarter of the way down, where it says “Match Type” – make sure that you tick the box marked “Exact”, then un-tick the other two boxes “Phrase” and “Broad”. This is vital to do, if you don’t do it your results will be greatly inaccurate and totally useless for what we need. Believe me, I’ve made the mistake several times before, I still do every now and again. All your efforts will have gone to waste should you fail to make sure the “Exact” box is ticked, and the other two are not!

What you should learn from your Keyword Research results?

For ease of reading, sort your results in descending order in accordance to the amount of Global Monthly Searches. So click the top of the column titled Global Monthly Searches, this should now arrange your results highest to lowest amount of searches per month. Obviously if a phrase is higher up the list, ie it gets searched for more, then we know it will potentially bring us more traffic. But, remember we are looking for those “Buying Keywords”, we want traffic that is ready to buy what we have to offer.

Having a quick scan through I can see straight away that there are a few “buying Keywords” jumping right out at me.

“Guitars for Sale”  = 14,800 monthly searches
“Best Acoustic Guitar” = 6,600 monthly searches*
“Cheap Guitars” = 6,600 monthly searches
“Cheap Acoustic Guitar” = 2,900 monthly searches
“Acoustic Guitars for sale” = 2,400 monthly searches
“Acoustic Guitar Reviews” = 2,400 monthly searches

As you can see the six buying keywords I chose from our results all have what I would consider a decent amount of traffic potential. As a general rule I personally consider anything over 3,000 monthly searches to be worth investigating further. So lets take these six keywords and move on to the next phrase of our research.

Checking out your keyword competition.

Before we decide to run with our six keywords, we need to find out who else is competing for them. In my opinion it doesn’t matter too much whether there are 200 million other web pages or 50 thousand other web pages battling for a keyword. All that really matters are those 10 websites that are on the first page of Google and, crucially, whether or not you can beat them.

Lets type in a our keyword “best acoustic guitar” into Google (without the quotation marks) and see what comes up.What we are looking for when we look at our potential competition is their on-page SEO, and the amount of back-links they have.

Their on-page SEO

Do they have the keyword in…

  1. Their URL?
  2. Their Header tag <H1>?
  3. Their Title tag <title>?
  4. Description tag <meta>?

Believe it or not, you will be surprised at how many websites do not have the keyword you are potentially targeting included in the above tags. It’s basic on page SEO, but a lot of sites miss it, especially the big authority sites like Amazon and Walmart – it’s understandable really, they’re so big and sell such a broad range of items, they don’t need to go “niche” and bother with such little details. We should see this as our advantage.

Looking at the results for “best acoustic guitar” I can see only two of the sites on the first page have our keyword in their URL, Header, Title and Description, so that’s good news for us. But, there’s even better news to come.

Their amount of backlinks

The second thing we need to check for is how many incoming links (or back-links) each one of our competitors has pointing at their page.

There are various ways of doing this. Without going into too much detail I’m just going to suggest you install the SEOBook toolbar on your Firefox browser. This will show you roughly how many inbound links a web page has when you visit it. If you want to investigate the back-links further you can do that too with the SEOBook toolbar. Have a quick look to see what sort of sites are linking to your competition. Are they authority sites? Do they have high Page Rank? etc etc

Using our original example again “Best Acoustic Guitars” – I mentioned earlier that only 2 of the sites on this page of Google for our keyword actually have the keyword in their Title, Header, URL, and Description. Well, one of those sites only has 12 back-links – and those 12 back-links are enough to put it above Amazon! Not only does this show us the importance of getting our on-page SEO right, but it also shows us that we won’t need to build many back-links to our new website to eventually push it to the front page.

(I’ve just posted a new more in-depth article looking at this subject called Spying on your Competition)

Conclusion

Go through this process for every one of your potential keywords to make sure you choose the right ones. Only you will know if you have the ability to compete against some of the big boys so choose your battles wisely. Remember, like the old Chinese proverb says – A sparrow never lands where the lion roams!

A final comment on Keyword Research

You can do everything I’ve explained above in a fraction of the time with the right tools, personally I use Google’s Keyword tool for every single project that I’m working on. It makes the whole process so much easier, it can do so much more than just your keyword research (I probably rely on it a bit too much at times).

 

Finding a profitable market niche and product

There is a single most important element that has the most significant influence on the success or failure of any business. It is the initial business idea. It consists of your product, your target market niche, and your unique selling proposition (USP). If you have a good business idea, and apply the proper techniques to develop your business, then your success is almost guaranteed. Here are few good tips that will help you to find good business ideas.

What makes a good business idea?

Let’s look closer at the three parts of what we call a business idea. The “product” term is self-explanatory, “target market niche” is also widely used, “USP” is somewhat less known, but we want to make some comments on each of those terms, regardless of their popularity.

Your product is, pretty obviously, what you are trying to sell. It can be a tangible item, like a book or a brick of soap. It can be an electronic item, like an e-book, or downloadable software. At last, it can be an online community membership, your professional service, or anything else you are going to charge your customers for. We call all those things “a product”. The most important attribute of a product is its value. Your product must be valuable for your customers, solve their problems, fulfill their wishes, and generally make them happy.

Your target market niche is your audience, your potential customers. Your target niche should have a reasonable size – large enough to make a good profit, small enough to fit the resources of a small business and avoid competing the large corporations. And your target audience should be easy to reach online through the specialized web sites, online forums, mailing lists, etc.

Your unique selling proposition (USP) is what connects your product with the target audience. It is the heart of your business idea. It can be defined as your marketing strategy, or your business mission. It is the concept that makes your product something more than one of the items on the shelf for sale. It must make your product stand out of the crowd and persuade your prospects that your product is the only perfect solution to their problems.

If all three parts of your business idea meet the above criteria, your chances to succeed are quite good. But how can you find such an idea? Read on, and you’ll learn several ways to do it.

Find a niche that matches your knowledge and skills

The best policy when determining your product and target market is to do what you enjoy doing. You’ll achieve the best results if you love your work. So, first of all, think about the things you like to do most of all. It may be your current job, one of your previous ones, your hobby, your favorite kind of sports, or anything else you like.

Write down all those possible areas of interest, and then think about each one of them separately. Try to answer the following questions:

  • Would you be glad to choose it as a daily job?
  • Do you have some unique skills or knowledge in that field?
  • Who would be interested in your proposition?
  • Would you like to work with those people?

After that, you should have a list of areas of interest that have the best chances to bring you the success.
Now, you can pick one of those areas and start structuring your knowledge. Write down the list of all the basic things one needs to learn to reach your level of success in that area. Then put them in a logical order, so that your customer could learn them in sequence. Then, do the same for each item in your list – break it into smaller parts, and then arrange those small parts in a logical order.

When you finish such two-level lists for several areas of interest, you’ll have some ideas about what you can offer to other people. Look through your lists, and think over each item.

Do you know anything special about it?
Do you have any related skills?
Can you try and create some product to help people solve that problem?
Can you offer something outstanding, not present anywhere else in the market?
Write down your ideas and try to imagine and describe a business built on every of those ideas. Some of them might look weird, but some may be quite viable.
Show your lists and ideas to your friends, listen to their opinion. They’ll surely tell you what ideas they like most, and maybe they’ll even give you some more ideas. They can also point out some logical mistakes you might have made. Ask your friends what products they might need, or what they would be willing to learn. Think how you can help them. Many other people could have the same problems as your friends. Again, write down all new ideas and imagine developing a business.

Do some research in the Internet. Find the web sites related to your areas of interest and your specific ideas. Learn what other people say about those things. Find some related online forums, or newsgroups. Listen to what people say, especially to what they need. If you notice any problems that many people tend to experience, think how you can help them. See if there is some serious competition in your field. As always, write down and think over your new ideas.

And, besides of conducting your research intentionally, always write down the “incidental” ideas that come to you during a walk in the park, or during your lunch. The best ideas often appear at the moments like that, so make sure you don’t forget them. Just make a small note, and then think it over when you have more time.

If you do all of the above, you’ll soon have a ton of ideas. Of course, they will be of different quality. Pick those that you like most, and research them more thoroughly. Try to invent your own products, or find someone else’s products that could make those ideas work. Why consider someone else’s products? Because you can form a joint venture with the product’s owner, and take a commission for selling that product in your specific market niche.

Estimate your chances before the big work

No matter how much you like your idea, don’t be in a hurry. Don’t invest your time and money into a new business until you make sure you’ll be able to profit from it. It would be very disappointing to spend half a year and thousands of dollars into a new product, and then to be unable to sell it to anyone.

First of all, think, would you buy such a product yourself? If you feel doubted, then you should probably work on another idea first. Ask your friends if they would find your product valuable. Maybe they would, but with some changes – write them down.

Try to estimate your market niche size. Internet can be useful here. Look at the search engine statistics, try to find information about the size of mailing lists devoted to your problem, find your potential competitors and think what will make you different. Make sure your target niche will be not too large and not too small.

Make sure your target audience is easily reachable online. Find and collect the addresses of web sites, online forums, and other Internet resources related to your product. Those are the places where you’ll want to advertise and seek for joint ventures.

When you have the addresses of the related online resources, conduct some research in target audience. Place some announces on the Internet and see how people react. If someone follows the links in your ads, or writes you email showing some interest, then your product will definitely be worth something to someone. You can even estimate the price by simply asking people how much they would pay for the solution to their problems, and how much they usually pay for similar products.

Automating the research to save your valuable time

As you have probably noticed, the process of finding business ideas and estimating their potential is rather time-consuming. You probably don’t want to spend several months just searching for ideas and evaluating them. You may be late by the time your research is over, because someone else can take up your target niche with his or her product at that time. Try to use tools like Google Trends Explorer to find out what’s trending or Keyword tool to see what people are searching for the most.

Top 12 Online Niche Marketing Trends and Predictions for 2018

Finding Your Niche and Most Trending Products to Sell Online in 2017-2018

Be different” – perhaps one of the greatest marketing slogans of all times. In fact, it’s so great that it could be placed right next to Shakespeare’s classic dilemma “to be or not to be”. No, this article is not about inspirational quotes or classic literature, but rather about something that is more trendy and relevant to those who are looking for the “next big thing” in gadgets, technology, ecommerce, social media, clothing, web design or other popular online niches. However, there is a significant correlation between those previous two and someone who is looking for a trending online niche or product to start a new online business. What are the untouched niche markets?

Sooner or later, an entrepreneur will face a dilemma: which product or niche to choose or not to choose (hence “to be or not to be”), which type of business model to go for and so forth. Eventually, the choice will be made based on market research, competition analysis and various other factors.

But before all this or somewhere along the line, an entrepreneur will have to determine how to create a unique value proposition and differentiate from competitors (hence “Be different”). These are complex stages of building a successful niche website and we will explain them in detail in our future posts. For now, our focus is on “buzzing” online products and trending online niche markets, that will be huge in the upcoming year of 2018.

Top 12 trending products and niche markets for 2018:

1. VR

virtual-reality-niche-marketVirtual reality – one of the most trending and talked about niche markets in the gaming industry, may also be one of the most difficult to enter and compete with established brands. Looking on the bright side, Virtual Reality is relatively new and emerging industry.

VR market is very saturated, but the ultimate performance and potential applications of this technology are relatively unexplored. Will it enter and dominate social media, ecommerce or online shopping fields? One could say that might happen in the next few years and we all will be trying on clothes or sunglasses in VR world, but it’s difficult to say if that will be the case.VR-market-trends

2. Electric Skateboards and E-scooters

electric-skateboards-niche-trendWhile self-balancing scooters, a.k.a. hoverboards, became obsolete due to fire hazard and copyright issues, electric skateboard niche market is growing steadily. Several electric skateboard start-ups did very well on crowd funding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo: Leafboard, Stary, Unlimited’s EON, Movpak , just to name a few.

4. Vape Juice (E-liquid )

vape-juice-niche-market When companies like Philip Morris entering highly unregulated industry, you can expect something big to happen. Although according to Telegraph, Philip Morris’s vision of cigarette-free future was met with scepticism, E-Cigarettes and vape liquid market volume are expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 25% from 2016 to 2021. In countries like The United Kingdom, where vaping product sales surpassed $6bn mark, vape shops are popping up on every corner.

One could say that “the golden age” of this unregulated industry is over and the new EU’s Tobacco Product Directive might confirm just that. But despite government’s efforts to control e-liquid market, there are plenty of options and new opportunities to launch and develop niche product within this growing industry.

10. Nano suction technology and Anti-gravity phone cases

nano-suction-trendThe ingenious anti-gravity case by Megatiny might be the start of a whole new niche market.

What is nano suction technology?

Image by UM! Brands

In its simplest terms, nano-suction is the power of millions of miniature suction cups, packed as tightly as the cells of your skin that it feels like a smooth plastic surface to your hand. When the product covered with a layer of nano suction material is pressed against a flat surface, the millions of tiny (nano-sized) suction cups create an immense vacuum, generating a strong suction force that can hold a huge amount of weight.

11. Artificial Intelligence

Artificial-intelligence-niche-trend

There is no shadow of a doubt, that Artificial intelligence (AI)  is the next “big thing”. It’s bigger than VR and AR combined. There are already numerous artificial intelligence algorithms, that surpass the capacities of human experts of today. Increasingly complex AI algorithms and cognitive machines are entering traditionally human-powered industries: customer service, after-sales support, finance, transport, production,  manufacturing or marketing.

This hyper focus on technology-fueled marketing has also had an immense impact on other types of technology, evolving artificial intelligence from the niche of science fiction to the newest must-have technology of today. ” – says David Verhaag . As AI algorithms, and cognitive, technological-brain capacity improves, its field of application will grow further.

At a certain point, sophisticated AI algorithms will start optimizing themselves to an ever greater degree—maybe even reaching superhuman levels of intelligence. Although AI is a vast industry, there is enough space for a number of products to fill various niche markets of this emerging technology in 2018.
