Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Just wanting to know if these stats are good for a keyword even though Jaaxy says "normal"?

Depends mate. Personally, I never have too much luck with stats like that. I imagine if you have a website chock full of content and a couple of years old then those keywords may rank in page 1. I have websites that are a 2-3 years old now and I need the QSR to be about 20 still, and the keywords are longtail (as in there is about 4 or 5 actual words in the keyword). I usually get about 20-30 visits a day if those pages do rank which I think isn't too bad.
Inadvertently, you always have spillover traffic generated from keywords in your article that google has thought you rank for, which you didn't intend to rank for. It happens. Anyway, what doesn't work for me, may work for you mate. Give it a whirl and see what happens! All the best, Rohan

Thank you! This is VERY useful information! That makes sense. I guess I'm trying to make up for past mistakes by trying to hit a home run on a single word. But I like what you say, essentially, if I'm not already an authority, skip that and go for the lowest hanging fruit on the vine. Is that a fair assessment?

I think so, fair assessment. It's all about content though. Keywords are no doubt important but content is king. From my experience you have to build up to the big juicy keywords with heaps of traffic with lots of content. I've always targeted that small niche of longtail keywords that seem to be ignored.

Are these good odds for a keyword?

I'm pretty sure the Google Webmaster's Console shows you all the words you rank for.

I'll look into it. Thanks!

Ok, so Im always having some issue or another with themes. Currently I am running the "Wise" theme. What it is failing to do is let me add post to the sub menu under pages. I s

Catch Responsive.

On themes you will get as Many opinions as there are people.

The big dollar guys seem to have standardized on tesseract. There are probably 100 different themes for WordPress release each month four different niches.

Personally my company pretty much has standardized on Vantage. Because of its customization and all of the powerful tools that come with it.

Some people use the older themes like customizr. WordPress changed I think in version 3.4 which added lots of capabilities to many of the newer themes including 2017.

Anything new will probably work. It's all just a matter of opinion and what you used to. As long as you can make it look the way you want it doesn't really matter.

I know a bunch of people recommended the Customizr theme to me. I installed it and I have it waiting for when I get tired of my current theme!

I'm using the colourmag theme it's really good I'll pm you my link so you can see it if you want?

Yes please. Thank you!

No problem I didn't want to send it untill you said yes.lol

Ok so I was at a friends house who has a PC and one of my articles had hyperlinks on a bunch of words. These, if clicked on led to trivago and stuff like that. However, on my c

Your issues, especially the second one is very important to have clearified. I cannot believe else than you are hacked, or that there is an issue with Amazon.

Cheers Peter

I have an email in with them now

your sales should show up in your amazon account. do they?
there are numerous reasons why amazon will not pay out so check your account for activity
with the site click on the text button on the post involved and see if you can see any extra html inserted (links to other sites)- if you can, report it to support. i would be uprised if they are able to get through, but nothing is impossible
it may be something on the other computer.
have fun

Thanks for the tip! I did hit the text button and no other links showed up. It must have been their computer. I just don't see how that could happen on my site on someone else computer ??

Your friend must have installed some plugins or clicked on some adverts that installs what we call adware. So when you highlight some links on his website it will advertise what the adware wants
to advertise.

Get your friend to download an adware remover. Such as Malwarebytes Adware Remover. Otherwise every link he clicks will take them to Trivago.

Did you have links on your website in the first place ? and have you tested the links on your pc and they work as intended to ?

Once your amazon credit reaches a certain amount they will send you a cheque or whichever payment you requested them to be sent to you in.

It's not WA's fault either as you clearly identified the issue is potentially with Amazon. Go to their support and see what they say.

John,

Im saying I pay a premium so I don't get hacked. Thats the reason I use WA for hosting. The Amazon thing is probably a separate issue

Amazon has a 60-day pay window. You might try going incognito on your computer the links should show up then.

Yes I did that, the didn't show up on my computer, but did on a friends computer. They run windows and Im Mac if that matters. Not sure. Thanks!

Michael what is your URL

I usually can see on my full report how many clicks I get per day on amazon. I haven't gotten any since august 2nd. And I personally know of 3 people who've ordered through me since then. All the hyperlinks to other sites were appearing highlighted blue in my article content. But on on my friends PC. But not mine.

Amazon just informed me that none of the transactions I mentioned were attributed to my link. I don't quite believe them
