        Check out all the information given by Warrior Jack Duncan.

        In the search box (see the horizontal menu above), type "Jack Duncan." Read his posts and follow the threads, you will learn a lot about niche research.

        Good luck,

        Steve

    There isn't just one way to do research. If you want to create a niche blog doing reviews of Clickbank products and putting related articles on there focusing on, let's say, product launches in the IM sector, a keyword tool won't help you because they are months behind. Some people come up with niche ideas by reading magazines, walking through a store doing their shopping or when watching t.v. It just depends.

      The way I learned to use the google research tool was to enter in multiple words or phrases into the tool and bring up the results. look for the results that get good number of searches monthly - you can even download the results in excel format.

      Look for keword searches that get at least over 3000 searches per month. Single out one keyword or phrase - copy and past it into google search within quotes (i.e. "make money online"). This will find all the websites google knows uses that exact phrase. Look at the number of results. In general you want the least amount of competition as possible.

      It would be great to get 30, 000 or less. However, depending on the niche it may not be possible to get numbers that low. For example, this niche - affiliate marketing is so saturated, almost any keyword search is going to give hundreds of thousands of results - if not millions. Still, you have to search for the least competition possible. If a keyword or phrase gives you at least 3000 searches a month and you can get the lowest results possible out of other kewords or phrases - than use it.

      Once you have the best keywords and phrases - be consistent and use them on any page you talk about the product or have a link - youtube, facebook, twitter, blogs, forums - everywhere. And keep posting frequently so the search engines can have more to display from you.

    I can agree with the 3000 searches per month. But I do not agree with putting the keyword/phrase in quotes. This doesn't really tell us anything useful. The ONLY thing that matters (besides the amount of searches) is who is on page 1. These are the direct people you will be competing with, period. As far is looking at competition, look for page 1 results only (no quotes) and competition that is PR3 or less with 300 backlinks or less. One maybe even two somewhat strong competition is ok. but no more than that.

    One thing you might want to do is to find all of the articles already written at legitimate article sites (EZA of course, top rate syndication article sites, squiddo lenses, etc.) and perform keyword research including high word and phrase counts on those articles. This will tell you what the competitors are using as their keywords. Obviously you want articles that are attempting to promote products you want to promote or that are "Like" the products you want to promote.

    You can then use that knowledge to find keywords/keyphrases that they missed or are not really investing in, that you can use to gather traffic they are leaving on the table. Or, if you are SEO savvy you can decide that you will use certain of their phrases and rank better than they are.

    I do this all the time.

    Following keyword search trends is a good technique but after a while I got bored of always going to google keyword tool to check on what I should name my new post.

    I started just titling my posts however i wanted and added some flare to them. Make the titles more organic and less copy-and-pasted-from-keyword-toolish.

    You will have more fun writing that way and your readers will feel for that.

    Traffic will come if you are a good writer and an interesting read.
