4 X Search Engine Traffic - Extreme Keyword Research Part 2 - WA Keyword research tool

Firstly. I love Jaaxy! But I have already done my niche and evergreen keyword research for the next year already (for another lesson.)

So to save costs while I am growing my website, I use the WA keyword tool. WA keyword tool works 100% fine for all research, I simply prefer Jaaxy for bigger research topics.

Anyway, here is what I found.

The term review doesn’t look that great right?

Well, if a product is in pre-launch, then I wouldn’t expect to see much search results going on for it. It will take a month or two for more accurate results and the hype to build up. So don’t let this put you off yet…

Also note the competition for the product name… Looks quite tuff, but from our own research, we know that it is actually not going to be that tuff.

Wait… I know what you are thinking… The keyword tool is not broken, I promise… and even bugged support before I understood it ;) … The product keyword that we are searching is just made up of common words used in everyday language… This can obscure your competition results a bit… Hence the initial research we did.

Let’s view the results now…

So more or less (Watch Jay’s video’s if you don’t get the ‘more or less’ ;)… the exact matches are 125…. Which is good.

And…

More or less 14 results… FANTASTIC!

As you can see from the research, this is going to be super easy to rank!

Note that as your domain authority grows, you will be able to rank for even bigger and more challenging ‘fast, easy ranking’ keywords.

Also, understand that Google is a funny character and doing what I am showing you will not necessarily be 100% flawless. However, this kind of research will give you results and put you well on your way to reaching your goals.

With that being said, I mentioned the gamble you are taking doing this…. Obviously, if a product you review flops or doesn’t take off, you won’t get traffic even if you are in first place…

So if you don’t have a good feeling from your research that a product will take off… Put it in your list for a rainy day when you are not in the mood to do research and continue to do this above research until you find a product that excites you.

Lastly, even if you feel you won’t rank for a product now, put it away in a safe place… You may find your domain authority has improved in a few months and then your research you do now, will save you loads of time then.

Again, you are going to have to play around, dive into this and get a feel for it… Then ask as many questions as possible in the comments below. Sound good?

Great!

Once you have found your Keyword, there are a few things I want you to keep in mind while writing…

So jump into the next, content writing secrets section when you are ready.

Hey Marv.

It's great to hear that you are back on WA. Looking forward to receiving you feedback and opinions if you have any on the training.

Thanks for leaving your thoughts.

Cheers,

Hi Marc, Yikes!! Just had a look at keywords in webmaster tools. Other than the first one which is such a broad keyword, the next few have nothing to do with my niche. What am I doing wrong - aside from the obvious answer which is a lot! Almost every post is centred around a keyword that has the right "numbers", and I use it in the title, first paragraph and last. Cheers, Hindy

Hey Hindy!

Did you change the theme? I love the new look and header image. It immediately drew me in!

I had a quick look at your posts and can't promise I'll be able to do so for everyone, but what I noticed is that even though, according to the keyword tool... The posts are meant to be super easy to rank... You are going up against some super powerful Domain authorities.

I think that focusing on your competitor analysis will help a lot in choosing which keywords are worthwhile.

That being said... You are doing extremely well for the position that I found your posts in... I did not expect to see them up there with the likes of Amazon etc.

I mentioned at the end of this training that 'you may be one degree away from boiling', and I really think this applies to your website at the moment.

Check out Jays completion analysis training. I am 100% sure it will help.

I covered a bit in page 8: Extreme Keyword research of this training, but Jays goes more in detail.

Link to Jay's training can be found in page 3 of this training.

Let me know if you are still uncertain after that. :)

Cheers,

Marc Parsons

Hi Marc, I'm really glad you like the change! I know the original was boring, but I was solely focused on content, and admittedly a little afraid to make the changes on my own, but I couldn't take it anymore! Still not branded, but at least it's not an eyesore. To be honest, for most of my posts I focused on searches, and forgot about competition - I have been looking at competition with posts I'm writing now so we'll see if things improve. Thanks for the rest of your advice as well.

An experienced marketing person I know recently told me she couldn't find me in the first few pages of Google, and my niche is not one people will keep coming back to, and certainly not buy anything from. If she's right, I'm considering starting a second site that will be an interest, not a passion like animals, and see if money flows that way.

Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to have a look, and offer advice. Cheers, Hindy

Glad you made the changes. It looks great Hindy.

Happy to hear you are focused on the competition as well now. Looking forward to hearing about your results.

I have to be honest, your niche does appear like it could be a bit challenging. I picked up secondary keywords like 'food' and 'care', but did not see very high searches even with that. Also not sure what the product review searches are like for your niche.

It's a call you will have to make though.

I wouldn't go so far as changing niche all together, but taking out the 'senior' may be an option if it is still too tough after trying with the competitor analysis?

Good luck!

I'm keeping it as it is, but I'll be doing two things - one is my own version of line extension by broadening the topic to include puppies and adult dogs, ways to keep them healthy and happy so they'll be healthier and happier seniors. Thought that was a great idea, it was my "ha ha" moment of this morning.
The second thing I'm doing is launching a second niche, with private label products (hopefully), and that has a lot more potential for money making.
