    Hi everyone! I'm Nuno.
    I created the Keyword Competition Tool together with Andrew.

    Here is the Free Backdoor Download for our tool again, in case you missed it in Andrew's long post:


    There are absolutely NO viruses and NO malware included in this or ANY of our tools!
    We aren't interested in getting involved in those sort of illegal things.

    We just want to provide very useful stuff for people, and build a Good Reputation here.

    You can still always test the safety of our tools, using these Online Virus Scanners:

    If you have any problems with our tool, or suggestions on how to improve it, please let us know in the comments below.

    We'll do our best to respond to them as quickly as we can.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I'll now just quickly cover a few things that Andrew didn't in his post:


    Keyword Results Tool Info

    System Requirements:
    Microsoft Windows: XP, Vista, 7, 8

    Filesize: 284 Kb
    Version#: 1.0

    Windows XP users: If the program is not working for you, please try updating your .NET Framework to a newer version here:
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile



    No Installation: You don't need to burden your computer system with "yet another" installed program.

    As soon as you download this tool, it's ready to be used right away. No installation process.



    Processing Speed: We intentionally limited the speed of the tool, to a rate of 1 Query (Keyword) per Second. (slight randomness in delay time added.)

    We could throttle the tool to a speed of 10 queries per second and more, but that would:

    1) Cause you to be blocked by Google (showing Captcha Puzzle) sooner and more frequently.

    2) Be unfair to Google anyway, adding an extra strain on their servers, which they clearly do not appreciate.



    Captcha Solving: When you send a very large number of queries to Google in a short space of time, they temporarily block you with a Captcha Puzzle.

    When this happens while using our tool, a Captcha window will appear on the right side of the tool.

    Simply type out the Captcha characters correctly and submit.
    The tool will resume processing automatically.



    We tried our best to make this tool as easy to use as possible, so it looks very simplistic and straight-forward.

    This is our first tool of this kind, so the features are a bit limited (but still very helpful).

    Our next tool will be even more useful. Let me just touch on that a little now:


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Keyword Competition Tool (Coming Soon)
    ----------------------------------------------

    This is another 100% Free tool that we will be working on soon.

    Aim of this Tool:
    1) Remove the Manual work of Examining the Competition Level (Top 10 SERP) for each Favorable Keyword "by hand".

    2) Do a much more In-depth Assessment of the Top 10 SERP results, by including in its Algorithm, a lot more factors than just the Page Rank and No. of Baclinks.


    How will it work?
    1) You Enter a Keyword / Phrase. Press Start.

    2) Our Tool runs numerous Queries using your Keyword, to gather data. It then processes that data using our Algorithms.

    3) The End Result is our Recommendation on how Hard or Easy this Keyword is to rank for (scores and supporting data provided).

    Simple as that!

    This tool will make your work of researching how lucrative a Keyword is for your Business Incredibly Easy.



    If we get Lots of Positive Feedback, we will Speed Up our work on Completing and Releasing this Tool for Free to the Public.

    We do both run other businesses, so please keep in mind that we are always busy, having many different projects to attend to.


    Thanks for taking the time to check out our Gift!
    We hope that it helps you in your Internet Marketing journey!

    -Nuno and Andrew

    Tool Suggestions
    --------------------

    This is a list of suggestions we have pending for this tool, from user feedback.

    We will discuss these suggestions and consider implementing them in a future version of this tool.

    Relevance of "No. of Search Results"
    ------------------------------------------

    A lot of SEO guys will tell you that the "No. of Search Results" in SERPs are Absolutely Irrelevant, a Useless metric.

    This is not true, in my opinion.

    Simple Example:
    Say we have 20 Keywords, within the Same Niche, using the Same Constants.

    Group A) 10 Keywords, Each having approximately 100,000 Search Results in Google

    Group B) 10 Keywords, Each having approximately 10,000 Search Results in Google


    Are you going to tell me Honestly, that the Keywords in Group A and the Keywords in Group B will on average, have the SAME level of Competition in SERPs?

    NO, they will Not.

    99 out of 100 times, the Competition Level of Group B is going to be Significantly Lower than that of Group A.


    If you compare Keywords across completely different Niches, not using the same Constants; then yes, the results can fluctuate more.


    Another point to look at:
    A very specific Product like "Warrior Forum Battle Shoes" (for example) may only have as little as 100 SERP Results, AND the Entire Top 10 SERP may be Dominated by the Manufacturing Company.

    While something less specific, like "Warrior Weight Loss" may have 10,000 results, but less tight competition.

    Does our method fail there?
    NO
    - Because, the Search Volume for "Warrior Forum Battle Shoes" would be Undoubtedly Very Low, so one will not profit much trying to rank for such a keyword.

    Lower Search Volume = Lower Keyword Value

    Generally speaking:
    The more Popular and Searched for something is on the Internet.
    =>
    The more SERP results are going to appear for it.
    =>
    The Higher the Competition will be for it.


    This will not be the case 100% of the time, but it is the Trend in most cases.

    So our method tries to take advantage of the uncommon cases of: High Search Volume + Low Search Results

    Which is Usually, the most favorable combination for Lucrative Keywords.


    Can "a few" valuable keywords be missed when using this method?

    Yes, that is unavoidable; but what should one do instead? Manually examine 500 Keywords from a list, one at a time?

    There are TRILLIONS and MORE Keywords that can be targeted online.

    Blue Plaid Shirts, Green Plaid Shirts, Red Plaid Shirts, Buy Blue Plaid Shirts, Buy Green Plaid Shirts, Buy Red Plaid Shirts, Long Plaid Shirts, Short Plaid Shirts, Medium Plaid Shirts, Men's Plaid Shirts,Women's Plaid Shirts, Kids Plaid Shirts, Large Plaid Shirts, Short Plaid Shirts, Lose Plaid Shirts, Fitted Plaid Shirts, Tight Plaid Shirts, etc...

    I won't lose sleep over the fact that I could possibly be missing out on a few Keywords, because there are an INFINITE number of Keywords yet to be examined.

    My best bet is to speed up the process, by making a filter list, as explained above, so that I can start examining the best Candidates, going downwards.

    It really doesn't mean that you are "Missing out" on Keywords, since you only stop examining that ordered list when you have found enough profitable Keywords (by Top 10 Result Examination).


    In the time in takes someone else to Manually find 10 Lucrative Keywords, we would have already found 100 Lucrative Keywords (even if we missed out 5-10 good ones).


    So in effect:

    The "Slower Marketer" is missing out on 90 other good keywords, due to the much Smaller Number of Keywords Examined.

    While the "Faster Marketer" is missing out on just 10, due to the Slight Imperfections of the much quicker method.



    Business is often a Numbers Game.

    The more ground you can cover...
    - Research
    - Split Testing
    - Test, Fail, Test some more
    - Reach larger masses

    ... usually the Better.


    ================================================== ==============================
    ================================================== ==============================


    We have now finally come to the end of our Tutorial.

    I realize that I didn't cover the best SEO methods for ranking high on Google.

    The focus of the Topic is on the Method of Keyword Research, and not the SEO, Content Writing, and other work that comes after.

    There are lots of Topics and Resources on this forum that can help you with both of those tasks

    I've already spent too much time writing already! :p



    In regards to Ranking higher in SERPs, I will just quickly say:

    1) Write GOOD content. Something you would WANT your Family or Friends to read, which will help them with their Problem or Need.

    2) Don't OVERDO it with the SEO. We've already put so much emphasis on finding Keywords with ZERO Competition, so it's not too hard to rank for them.
    Build your Backlinks Manually using Whitehat methods, over a few weeks. It sounds like boring work, but it will be better for you in the long run.

    3) Be sure to use your Target Keywords WISELY in your Page's Content. Include them in Title, Description and H Tags. Use Variations of the Keyword often in your Text. More often, Long-Tail Keywords. Less often, Synonyms




    In regards to Monetizing your Traffic:

    There are Many ways in which you can do this;
    However, your Monetization method would Depend Mostly on what Niche or Keyword you choose to Target.

    - Google Adsense / Ad Networks
    - CPA Networks
    - List Building + Email Marketing
    - Affiliate Maketing
    - Creating + Selling your own Product, Service or Tool

    etc...

    You'll find lots of advice on Monetizing Traffic around these Forums.




    I'll let Nuno talk to you about: 7) Keyword Competition Tool (Coming Soon)
    Which is another 100% Free Tool we plan to create soon.




    Thanks for taking the time to read!
    We hope that you enjoyed our Gift.

    We're looking forward to seeing others put it to good use, and getting Success with it!

    Using the same formula above, here are the expected earnings for the other Top Keywords in our "[US State] Weight Loss" research:



    Like I said before, in this example, I Manually examined the FULL list of 50 Keywords, to see if we would have missed out any profitable ones at the bottom of our "Keyword Value Chart".

    Except for "Maine Weight Loss" (which was by far the lowest earning KW on this shortlist anyway), all of the other Lucrative Keywords from our list were Above the Median Keyword Value.

    The Least Favorable Keywords tended to have Lower KW Values.


    No method is Perfect, however, the method we are sharing with you will be very useful in most cases, when trying to examine very large KW Lists.


    ================================================== ==============================
    ================================================== ==============================


    Example 2 - [Car Model] Windshield ($223.17/Month Keyword)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is another niche we decided to pick.

    I thought that Cars should have a decent CPC, and it's an interesting sbject so me, so I decided to work with that.

    I search for a Large List of Car Models.
    Easily, I find a list f 600+ Variables (Car Models) to use.

    Now to think of the Constant that we shall append to each variable.

    - Used [Car Model]
    - New [Car Model]
    - [Car Model] Repair
    - [Car Model] Parts
    - [Car Model] Tyres
    etc...

    These seemed like too common keywords that would probably already be well covered in SERPs.

    So I tried my luck with "[Car Model] Windshield".

    The Windshield seems to be an expensive enough replacement part for a car (more earnings), and I doubt that the competition will be that high for all Keyword Variants.

    So using the methods outlined in the previous example, I found quite a number of very lucrative KWs.

    I didn't check the entire list of 600+ Keywords Manually this time, of course. :)

    I relied on our Keyword Value Formula to give me a sorted list of the most probable order I should begin with.


    The best 3 I got were:

    "Honda Civic Windshield" - No Competition / Very Easy

    "Ford F150 Windshield" - No Competition

    "Jeep Cherokee Windshield" - No Competition / Very Easy


    Someone should be able to secure #1 SERP position for these Keywords with a little SEO work and Good Content.


    For the Calculations below, we used the same "Earnings Estimate Formula" as before:

    65% of Traffic Volume | 68% of CPC | 5% CTR



    It took me only about 20 - 30 Minutes to find all of these valuable Keywords, using the method we outlined.


    ================================================== ==============================
    ================================================== ==============================

    Example 3 - [Fishing Brand] Tackle ($110.99/Month Keyword)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the 3rd Keyword list I created and examined for this Tutorial.

    First we need to find the Niche Variables to build our list with.

    "Fishing" just pops into my head. :)
    I've never done fishing before, but I've always wanted to try it one day!

    I really have no idea of how profitable or competitive this niche is, but let's give it a go!

    (Note that I still recommend targeting Keywords you have experience with, this KW is just for our Example/Tutorial)


    So the first thing I do, is search for a BIG List of Fishing (Equipment) Brands.

    I find that easily in just a few seconds (Google Search).
    I found a list that seemed large enough, so I worked with that. (500+ Brands.)


    Next, I need to find a Constant to append to each variable.

    - Fishing Equipment
    - Fishing Boat
    - Fishing Rod
    - Fishing Bait
    - Fishing Hat
    ... were some of the only keywords I could think of.

    I didn't have much knowledge of fishing, other than what is shown on TV. :p

    So, I tried doing this:

    I went over to Google Adwords Keyword Tool and typed in "Fishing".

    I looked in the "Ad group ideas" Tab, and noticed something called "Fishing Tackle" (which I never heard of before).



    So I did a quick search and learned that "Fishing Tackle" is just another word for "Fishing Equipment".

    Since this word appears in Adwords Suggestions, it likely means that there is a considerable amount of Search Volume for that phrase.

    It was an uncommon word to me, so I thought that:

    1) It will probably have less competition than other more common phrases.

    2) People searching for this Keyword would more likely be "BUYERS" than casual searchers; since knowing the terminology indicates that you are probably serious about this niche.
    Thus, likely better conversion rates.


    So, I go ahead and build my Keyword List with the help of our Tool, and begin doing the research.

    These were the best Keywords I found:

    "H and H Tackle" - No Competition

    "Do-it Tackle" - Very Easy





    You may notice 3 Keywords (In Red and Orange KW Value) that were found to be "Easy Competition", didn't have that high of a Keyword Value (Esp Tackle, Mitchell Tackle & Challenge Tackle).

    Keep in mind that Keyword Value doesn't only try to figure out which keywords are easiest to Compete for, but also, which ones will give better earnings.

    Those 3 estimated in earnings between $6.61 and $13.05, which is not desirable.
    Thus they rightfully should have a Lower KW Value than other Higher Paying Keywords.


    I didn't find that many great Keywords this time, most of the Keywords on that list actually had ZERO Search Volume.
    So most of the list was Not Applicable for the study.

    However, I still got 2 Keywords that are Very Easy to rank in #1 position for, and can bring in few extra bucks per month.

    In any case, only 20 - 30 minutes were spent. Which is much better than spending 500+ Minutes (8 Hours) trying to examine the entire list. (And ending up with the same results.)

    I only examined 27 Keywords this time, because the Search Volume for the others were too low.

    All of the more Favorable Keywords were in the Upper KW Value range by the way, so the results still supported our method.



    [Note]: Be aware that sometimes the "Constant" may appear in the "Variables".

    For example:
    - Aok Tackle
    - Bhp Tackle
    - Cm Tackle
    etc...

    These were the Actual Name of the Brands.

    So I would get:
    - Aok Tackle Tackle
    - Bhp Tackle Tackle
    - Cm Tackle Tackle
    etc... in my Keyword List.

    So you may want to take a quick Check for the occurrence of the Constant in your Variables, before you start doing your research.

    =============================================


    It is usually a good idea to target multiple keywords, to Multiply your Earnings.

    Using our method, if you can Rank Very Strongly for 10 to 100 Keywords, you can surely have a $10,000+ Monthly Income!

    Just don't go around putting out 100's of Crappy Sites/Pages at Light-Speed, in an attempt to "Get Rich Overnight".

    I recommend setting a Goal of DOMINATING SERPs for at least 10 very Lucrative Keywords, and then keep your rankings steady.


    Find other ways of driving traffic to your site also. (Pay Per Click, Solo Ads, etc...)

    This is VERY IMPORTANT.

    You don't want to put "All your eggs in 1 Basket".



    Google could decide to penalize any number of your websites at an instant; It happens to a lot of Internet Marketers.

    I don't follow the trend of many others, to abandon SEO entirely.
    Google will ALWAYS continue to be a Goldmine for Marketers, as long as they remain #1.

    When people come online, the first site the majority of them start browsing from, is GOOGLE.

    Google IS the Shortest Gateway between people Getting Online, and Reaching to your Website.

    Example 1 - [US State] Weight Loss
    ($2159.69/Month Keyword)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    For this first example, I purposely selected a smaller list, because I wanted to validate the effectiveness of this method.

    After the initial "Keyword List Comparison" check, I Manually checked the Top 10 Results ALL Keywords in this list, to see if I would have missed out on any Favorable Keywords by using our method.


    So first, I searched for a list of all the US States.
    I found a list of exactly 50 States to work with.

    [US State] = Variable

    Next, I need to think of a suitable Keyword to append to each State.

    Examples:
    - [US State] Cancer Lawyer
    - [US State] Chiropractor
    - [US State] Gym Trainer
    - [US State] Real Estate
    - [US State] Auto Dealer
    etc...

    I recommend that you explore Keywords/Niches which you have some Experience or Knowledge in.

    Good Content is what Google is looking for, it's what they prefer to rank higher in their SERPs.
    You're going to be able to provide better Content or Services in something you have experience in.

    I just picked "Weight Loss" from the top of my head. I do know a lot about Fitness and Weight loss, but I'm not going to personally try to Rank for that niche now, I'm just doing this to provide a live example.


    So now, pasting my list of 50 US States into our Keyword Results Tool, I make use of the "Add Suffix" Function.

    I typed " Weight Loss" into the Lower-Right box, and press "Add Suffix", to append that phrase to all my Keywords.

    (Notice the extra space " " before "Weight Loss", for separation)


    I Copy and Paste this list into Google Adwords Keyword Tool:
    https://adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool



    Since we want to focus on US Traffic for these Keywords, we select "United States" in the Filter Options.
    (It didn't make a difference in this case, because the Global and Local results matched)

    Once your list of keywords is processed, Download the "My Keyword Ideas" Speadsheet after selecting your results.

    Press: Save All > Download > My keyword ideas > CSV for Excel > Download

    After opening the CSV for excel, you should Save it in .XLSX format to Preserve Formatting.


    This is what my Spreadsheet usually looks like after formatting:



    I usually:
    - Trim out some unneeded Data
    - Paste the Number of Search Results for each Keyword in a new column
    - Then in another column, I apply the Formula given earlier in this post:


    (Search Volume / Search Results) x 100 = Keyword Value

    To get the "Number of Search Results for each Keyword", we use the Keyword Results Tool.

    To get certain Columns in those fancy colors (Green to Red), I use the "Conditional Formatting" Option in Excel.

    Once the Speadsheet is finished, it's now time to start examining it to find Potentially Lucrative Keywords.


    I usually start by examining the "Keyword Value" Column.

    This column has the most important metric for comparison, since it takes into account both the Volume of people searching for that Keyword and the Number of Results for that Exact Phrase in Google (which is a Slight Indicator of the Competition Level).

    The Conditional Formatting Color Scale will help you to pick out more quickly, which Keywords have a higher KWV.

    Start from the Highest KWV going downwards.

    Examine the Top 10 Search Results for Each Keyword Manually, as I explained earlier.

    You can make a little rating scale in a new Column, which says how difficult the Competition is.

    Your scale can be "0 - 10"
    "No Competition" to "Impossible"

    Whatever you choose.
    It's just a good way of keeping note of your progress.

    For my examples, I'll use this scale:

    No Competition - All PR 0 Results

    Very Easy - Mostly PR 0 Results, Especially in the Top 3-5 Results

    Easy - Mostly PR 0-1 Results, Especially in the Top 3-5 Results

    Normal - Mostly PR 1-2 Results, Especially in the Top 3-5 Results



    Anything over Normal (Hard, Very Hard, etc...), I exclude from consideration of targeting those keywords.

    I may also mark Keywords with No Search Volume as N/A.
    They are not applicable to our study
    , because it makes no sense trying to rank high in SERPs for a keyword with 0 Search Volume.

    Search Volume = Potential Traffic


    Keep note, that for my ratings, I try to look at the "Average PR" for all 10 results on that page.

    For example, there may be 6 x PR0 and 4 x PR3 in a SERP.

    In this case, "Most" of the results are PR0, but the "Average" PR is above 0.

    In such a case, I may consider the Competition level as "Hard" or "Very Hard".

    So just use your own Logic and Reasoning when doing this. There is No Perfect Formula when it comes to this.


    Also, note that I am always taking into consideration, the number of Backlinks each result has (even though I didn't mention that in the scale above).


    As I begin going through my Top Prospect Keywords for "[US State] Weight Loss", I come across this one that seems very Favorable to me:

    "Texas Weight Loss"



    There is pretty much NO COMPETITION in the Top 5 Search Results here!

    Between positions 6-10, you will find One PR4 Result, and Two PR2 Results.

    Not to worry though! The PR4 and the Higher PR2 don't even have "Texas Weight Loss" in their Page Title, so it won't be very hard to overtake them in the Top 10 Results.

    It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to have the EXACT Keyword you are Targeting, in your Title Tag.



    How to Calculate Potential Revenue for a Keyword

    Let's do a little Math and try to calculate how much earnings this Keyword can give us, when you secure the #1 SERP Spot.

    I will do my BEST to be Honest in my Calculations, and not Exaggerate Anything.


    Texas Weight Loss
    Search Volume: 14,800 / Month
    Average Cost Per Click: $6.61




    Expected Monthly Visitors: If you get in Position #1 in Google's SERP for a Keyword, you can expect to get around 40% of the Search Volume as traffic to your website.

    Now we add an Additional 25% for other Keyword Variations that will also drive traffic to your webpage. (Fast Texas Weight Loss, Texas Weight Loss Gym, etc...) In most cases, you will get traffic from Hundreds of other Related Keywords, without optimizing your Page for them.

    In that Same 25% (above), we also consider Other Search Engines that will also bring traffic for all these keywords; Bing, Yahoo, etc...

    Using this Rough Estimate: 65% of 14,800 = 9620 Visitors per Month


    Expected CPC: Google Adwords shows us that the Average CPC for this Keyword is $6.61

    Taking into mind that Google gives Adsense Publishers 68% Revenue Share, we'll estimate our CPC earnings to be: $4.49

    Your actual CPC can be Higher or Lower than this.
    If you are ranking #1 for a Keyword, more than likely, your CPC will be Higher than Average, as Higher Paying Advertisers are competing for your Ad Slots.

    You Don't Need to monetize your website with Adsense by the way; there are many other ways to profit from your site.
    I'm just using Adsense's CPC as the best General Guideline of what Advertisers are willing to Pay you Per Click, for such a Keyword.


    Expected Click-through rate (CTR): It's hard to give an "Expected" CTR, as that would depend a lot on what Niche you are Targeting, how well your Content and Monetization is done.

    I would say that 5% is a very Realistic and Achievable CTR for such a niche.

    Your goal would be to keep the visitor engaged on your site, all the way till it leads up to a successful Click, Lead or Sale.

    Many people achieve CTRs of 10% to 20%, but in my opinion, those stats are exceptional, and 5% is a much more realistic figure.


    Now, summing all of this together, we get:

    5% of 9620 Visitors x $4.49 = $2159.69 Per Month!

    That's pretty decent earnings from just 1 Keyword!

    Even if my calculations were somehow off by some Huge factor, you'd still likely earn $1000+ Monthly for landing in #1 Position for such a Keyword.
