Researching a couple of new niches, how should we take into consideration large online retailers (like amazon or ebay) showing up in search results for keywords? For examples one area I was looking at had 3 pages of big box retailers and online retailers pop up but another area had just amazon and ebay listings pop up. Would the second scenario be a red flag for an ecommerce store?

    Find your niche , find a category for that niche, then promote the products.

    Would the second scenario be a red flag for an ecommerce store?
    Yes, it would.

    In our opinion, you definitely want at least a couple of the results on the first page to be niche specialty stores, If it is nothing but the big websites, it becomes much more difficult to reach page one in a relatively short time frame. So,the second scenario is the more attractive one to us.

    Thanks Dave. There are couple of niche players on page one and most of page 2 is niche players. Dave I have gone through your program many years ago maybe should brush up on the niche research part!

  • You should find good and sellable products based on certain criteria including product ranking, ROI, product category, etc.

    You should not be afraid of big box players like Amazon, Target, or Walmart. Unless you're selling an exact product then you would have no chance.

    On my site's tutorial about researching on niche product, let's say if you're trying to rank for keyword "dog flea oil", and you have your own brand/label for such product then you should not worry about big box websites because they're selling a different branded product. You will rank top for other long tail keywords that Amazon or Walmart does not even know about. Even those these long tail keyword variations do not have a lot of search volume, but adding all up is very significant. The secret is how to find them
