Right now here's what I'm doing.
Use Adwords keyword tool to search keyword to see how many searches are done per month on a keyword.
Then typing the keyword into Google in "" to see how many results come up.
Hoping for at least hundreds of monthly searches for a keyword without too many thousands of search results on Google..looking for a good ratio.
Well I've researched dozens of keyword this way and found potential good ones.. recording the keyword, # of monthly searches, and # of Google results.
I just found a keyword phrase that has tens of thousands of monthly searches but ONLY less than 10,000 "" results in Google. TWENTY times more searches/month than results in Google. Even without "" there are only three times as many Google results as there are monthly searches.
Plus there are several products in Clickbank that perfectly match the keyword phrase.
How common is it to find results like this, and have I found a potential "gold mine?"
