Let's Work Out An Example Shall We?
Let's say that I am in the guitar niche...
On step 2, I will just try to identify the products, brand name and solutions in my niche. Just an example, I found that there are several brand of guitars, like gibson, fender and etc.
On step number 3, the brand name itself is a keyword and I would do keyword research on them. This keyword research on the brand name will tell you if there are a lot of interest in this niche. This step is to identify if there are a lot of people imterested in your niche.
Then on step 4, you will do product specific keyword research, like Fender Stratocaster review (a specific product keyword). Type this keyword into Google to see what are the top results. This step is to identify what type of sites Google is willing to rank.
Hope this exercise will make everything clearer.
