Refining Your Niche With Keyword Research

Now that you’ve got a list of topics you could write about, it’s time to isolate some top keywords from your research.You can always use Google’s Keyword Tool’s free and a useful way to start your keyword search.

You will find a number of helpful tools on the Google Keyword Tool Box page like the Webmaster Central Tool Set, AdSense Webmaster Income earning program, Website Analytics, Google+ for Webmasters and other informative topics.But after you’ve spent some time writing content for your website and you haven’t seen the money, you need to find a keyword tool to dig a little deeper.

Many vendors have developed keyword tool applications that help webmasters find the perfect set of words to attract their starving audience while eliminating the clutter of competition.

If you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you have a perfect tool from which to start. Go to the WA Key Word Tool (It’s free for Premium Members with unlimited searches.Sorry, if you are not a Premium Member you only get 30 free searches.) If you want to step up to an even deeper level of keyword search, take a serious look at Jaaxy.

Let me give you an example of keywords to type in for a potential money making niche.Let’s say your starving crowd is “Recent Law School Graduates Who Want to Pass the Bar Exam”. Recent Law School Graduates are a good example of a starving audience who has an urgent need and will pay for information.

Keywords you might type into a keyword tool application software could be:

    ·How to Pass the Bar Exam

    ·Passing the Bar Exam

    ·Study for the bar exam

    ·Bar exam questions

    ·Tips to passing the bar exam

    ·Passing the bar exam in

    ·Bar exam prep

    ·Passing bar exam

When you use WA’s Keyword Tool you will notice that each of these keywords offer over 100 monthly searches and have a competition score of 400 or less. That makes them fairly good keywords to write about. (NOTE: Ideally, look for keywords with 100+ monthly searches and a competition score of 100 or less but don't obsess over the numbers! Focus on producing epic content. Once you gain a few loyal readers your traffic will grow organically.)

By doing keyword research before you decide your money-making niche you can see that there is a good deal of interest in your niche. But hold on a minute or two.

You may think you’ve found your sweet spot niche on the road to your online fortune. But there is one more test to identifying a money-making niche and that is the Five Minute Profitability Test on the next page.

Money Tip# 5: Honing your skill with keyword research will help you add more relevant content to your target audience and increase traffic to your website.

Hi Rebecca,

I was thinking of sharing my life experiences.. for example, how do i manage with unemployment, sister's marriage, life after graduation.. basically telling people out there that it is okay to go through it, i have gone through it, this is what i did.. i wonder where does this category fall under?

Could it be self help? unemployment?

Would be great to get opinions from you and anyone who can relate to my train of thoughts!

Hi Munira,

I have something of the same idea but i have no idea of how it can be profitable as a niche. I am a realtor and aspiring christian speaker to women's groups. I speak to women from my own experiences, abuse, death, infidelity, divorce and how they can get from heartbreak to where God wants them. In the real estate market I have been an expert on getting people home loans even when it seemed impossible. I have just started my ministry
and I am in the process of getting speaking engagements set up. If i can find an answer for my niche I will pass the informatoin on to you, please do the same for me.

Wishing you great success in your online business.

God Bless, Judith

Hi Rebecca,

You really have opened my eyes to finding a profitable niche. I have toyed with a couple of different niches but I couldn't decide on one that I thought would either be profitable or me having enough knowledge to make my site authoritative in order to drive traffic and potential customers to a website.

I am going to read your training again possibly a few more times and take notes.

The training here at WA is beyond words how good it is but they ask you to pick a niche in the beginning of the training and create a website based on that niche but they do not go into detail like your training here and I think it confuses members on what is the best niche to pick just as i have experienced but I think after reading your training it will give me a better understanding of what to decide on for a good profitable long lasting niche.

Thank you Again,

Thank you rebeccas:

This was very well done, while being thoughtfully laid out for the student reader. I was really intrigued and impressed by the level of sophistication and expertise, which was evident in your presentation.

The material also contains an exceptionally high level of focus, on the relevant subject matter, while going into lengthy detail about the specifics involved (how it works).

Yet as I've seen before with Wealthy Affiliate Lesson plans it was pleasantly straight forward and was rather easy to comprehend due mostly to its clarity.

Finally, I enjoyed following along with your step by step concepts through how to actually profit online, because they really did illustrate quite well to me, where the money is.

Again, thank you so much for sharing this, because it was truly an awesome learning experience for me!
Ok,Rebecca,Thank you for your tutorial. But finding a niche is so complicated that I have to go through many person's tutorial to grasp it, because I find myself lost in the ocean of niches. I must learn to swim in various ways to reach it. I learned from you that I have to 1..find the right audience 2..To understand their problems give them some solutions. I am trying to find the right audience, but I am failing. Any more help from someone , please.

What life experience do you have? perhaps it would help to try and find something that you're able to relate to personally.
Redundancy, retirement, marriage, divorce, children, grandchildren. - Why did you start with Wealthy Afflilate? - Helpful if you decide the to follow Bootcamp.
What are your hobbies, interests. Sports ( any).
Why do you do the things you do?
Where to get your pets next Halloween outfit?
What problem do you want to help people with and provide them with solutions for?
I hope that is a little helpful. J

Interesting niche training. I know now what I will do!
It seems I've been living this niche for the last 30 years.
Now I know something about it to write about i!
I think in everyone out there that there is some inner thought will eventually rise to the surface of your mind and you can use it!
I hope to have my site up soon and will show you what I mean!
