Ok guys, let me tell you something that happened this week. It's probably the fastest possible way to make money online.

This sort of happened by accident.

I was doing some keyword research for one of my clients and stumbled upon a long tail keyword phrase (5 words) that has 4,000 daily search results and at that time (one week ago) it had less than 3,000 competition.

Anyway, I was able to grab the hyphenated .com domain for that keyword.

Being way too lazy that day (and hangovered as well) I couldn't bother myself to build a website, I went to Blogger opened a blog, made 10 blog posts optimized with the keyword, transfered the domain to that blog and submitted the site map to the search engines.

Then I used a social bookmarking submission automated software (BIG Mike's SocialBot) to get backlinks to all the pages of my blog (every blog post is considered a page and so are the comments for each post).

Take into account that the keyword is completely informative, it doesn't really have commercial value, but I thought what the heck ANYTHING can be monetized. So I went to Clickbank grabbed a related product and spread my affiliate link all over the blog.

Today I just did a Google search for the keyword and I'm in position #1. I logged to my Clickbank account and I already made 7 sales in ONE day.

All this costed me $8 for the domain name, about 2-3 hours worth of work and it will make me passive residual income forever without me having to lift a single finger.

Myths Dispelled:

1. Hyphenated domains are crap for SEO.
2. Keywords need to have commercial value (This proves ANYTHING can be monetized).
3. Making fast cash is not possible.
4. Out ranking authority sites is hard (My 1 week old PR0 blog is out ranking PR8 websites for that keyword).
5. Mass instant backlinks don't work.

Enjoy!

Dan

P.S: Take into account that this can also be done in Wordpress and for better results you can even use the All In One SEO Pack plugin.

    Great job Daniel...

    Did you host the blog or just masked (or redirected) the domain to your blog?

      Superb and inspiring, Daniel - thanks for posting.

      The only thing I struggle with is keyword research... I seem to have some kind of mental block with it sometimes. Everything else in the process you describe is well within my abilities. Still, I'm doing okay.... but I want to do better

        I am doing rather bad in keyword research.
        By the way, which keyword research tool are you using?

          I use the SEO Book Tool and I've started playing with Micro Niche Finder as well (very good keyword research software).

              Yup, but it digs deeper and goes beyond it on many aspects, which is why I use it in conjuction with the SEO Book Tool.

                FYI Everyone - I'm going through this exercise myself as a test and found that there is a known issue with Blogger when transferring domains from another registrar. Even if you do everything correctly you might still get a 404 error when accessing the site via the registered domain. The solution is to purchase the domain you want through blogger and not whoever you usually use.

                This happened to me and I'm now forced to do a HTTP forward of the domain to the blog which I'm sure will effect my results. Anyone care to comment on how much it will effect it?

                Daniel, you mentioned above that you are looking for ways to backlink naturally, any progress you can share with us?

                I'll update this thread next week with the results even with the HTTP forward.

                Thanks for the great post btw.

                  I believe Angela V. Edwards is running a $5/month membership as a WSO in which she will send you 30 high PR sites each month where you can add backlinks. DO FOLLOW backlinks of course.

                  You have to do it manually, but those backlinks are well worth it.

    Got to say I've no problem buying hyphenated domains either, you only have to look at experts - exchange dot com for proof that they're not a huge problem (mind you I think there was another reason they put a hyphen there ) I think you only run into problems when your domain name is repeated verbally.

    Nice one

      Nice post and welldone. I also found a really good keyword phrase with 1400 daily searches and 148 competing websites. Got the domain made the blog and went to number one on google only to find out that wordtracker got it wrong. I am yet to get a single hit from that keyword phrase.

      I'll keep searching though. Let us know how your blog does. Inspiring post.

      Dashbord>Settings>Publishing and click on advanced to add your own domain to the blog.

      First you need to point the DNS settings from GoDaddy (or wherever you register domains) to ghs.google.com I believe.

      OR you could always pay $10 and set it up immediately through Blogger in that same Publishing page.

        This is very information because i have never known about his until now . So you can basically use Blogger.com to host your website..

        Great Info!

        Many thanks and more power to you..

        I have one question though... Can you use this for your Adsense campaign? without getting any type of penalty?

      That would be correct Dana, you basically get to leverage Blogger.

        Does it matter if you host the blog at blogger itself or can you just have blogger ftp the files to your server? Great post BTW!

          Well the thing about hosting the blog with blogger is that you also get to leverage on their page rank (PR9 I believe). Blogger belongs to Google which is why the SERPs (especially Google) love it so much.

          Hey Daniel,

          Nicely done! 7 sales in one day from scratch - not bad!

          Just a word of warning... Be careful on what you uncover by doing your competitive searches. I've been burned a number of times thinking I found a killer keyword with little competition - only to find a day later that the results Google initially showed were way off.

          I'll give you an example of one I found this weekend: "low cost insurance"

          Targeted with thousands of searches a day. Initially Big G told me there were only 2,500 competing pages. I suspected that was wrong and the next day it showed 250k. Still not bad, but not nearly as great as I initially thought.

          This happens to me on a weekly basis.

          There are hundreds if not thousands of those keywords.

          I have articles that get 500-1,000 views per day based on such keywords. My best one is optimized around a 6 word long tail keyword.

                  According to the Google keyword tool that keyword phrase only has 110 searches per month.

                  SEO Book's estimate of 1,277 per day is not at all accurate.
                  Time for research.

                  2. http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...one-place.html

                  The Google Keyword Tool is useless for SEO, I can't believe you've been relying on that.

                  That tool is for PPC research, not SEO.

                      Every keyword tool out there (including WordTracker) will give you similar results, EXCEPT the Google tool.

                      MANY millionaire Internet Marketers bash on the Google keyword tool for providing useless results (SEO wise).

                      Well not many, I was exagerating. I have 3 and I backlinked the living hell out of them so they would stay in position 1. The thing is these 5 word long tail keywords are usually "hot trends", so that heavy traffic will eventually fade away.

                      I wish it would be consistent traffic, but it's not. They do work for quite a while though.

                  Given the priorities of those doing the search it's not much of a surprise.

                  So do you set up the blog so that there is no more than ONE blog post per page in the blogger layout settings?

                  Do you put your affiliate links within the keyword phrases of your blog post or are you putting your affiliate links as separate banners/text links in between posts or on the sidebar?

                  Thanks for all of your excellent input!
                  You can have several posts in the main page, considering each post will get it's own page anyway.

                  The affiliate link has nothing to do with SEO. You want to place it or spread it so that visitors are inclined to click on it, simple.

                  Great thread and thanks for taking your time to help others here.

                  I'm one of those guys that messed up when using adwords suggestion tool for seo purposes.

                  I'm wondering though, how did you search for the above keywords? For "top 10 banks in the us" i'm barely seeing any results in seobook and wordtracker. Do you have a wordtrackker account or you using the free online keyword tool.
                  This thread was started on October 2008.

                  Of course the keyword results have changed.

                      It's good for finding keywords, it digs for related terms a lot. It's probably the best non-Google database alternative. Meaning it takes its results from the metacrawlers.

                      As for Google database, the best is Micro Niche Finder in my opinion.

                    Actually, when I asked about affiliate links, what I meant to ask was...What are the best ways to place your affiliate link so that readers will click them?

                    In other words, do you hyperlink keywords in each post to your affiliate product? Or, do you setup links/banners between posts?

                    I know you said to spread them so visitors are inclined to click on them, but what do you find to be the optimal way to post your affiliate links on your blog to make money?

                      Try both. If they don't come with a tracking ID then set it up (Clickbank has that option).

                      Give the posts and banners different tracking IDs, that way you will know which one performs better.

                      There is no such thing as "THE best method/system". You need to test, tweak and track to see what performs better for you, your site and the niche you are on.

      Since yestarday when it hit page 1 in Google it's getting over 1,000 unique visitors between today and yestarday, so I guess around 500 per day.

        Mass linking can be a instant boost of seo rankings, but google cab spot un-natural linking and will lower your serp if you don't keep up with your linking, if you had 200 links come in in less than 7 days, you better keep getting 200 links coming every 7 days or google will see the linking as not being natural and will lower your rank.

    First of all, WT and many other KW tools give you an guesstimate, not 100% actual truth, the google tool as mentioned before many times is great for adwords, but not for seo .

    I deal mainly with the ppc side and that google tool is excellent among the other great tools that are out there for testing and making sure that the phrase /keywords are profitable.

    I still stand behind my earler comment, getting massive inbound links in a short frame of time can raise some flags for google, natural linking is key.

      I agree 100% with everything you have said. The Google tool is still great for PPC research and yes those results from the other tools are not precise, but they do give a fairly accurate estimate.

      And yes natural backlinking is the key, but once you get your site into the spotlight with the massive amount of instant backlinks, natural backlinking will occur by others if the content is good, especially if the domain is for the keyword.

    So that keyword is sitting dormant until someone discovers it, and then you've got instant competition? Are they copycats?

      I don't think it was dormant, I think it was new and hence the low competition at first, then people started picking up on it.

      I think these keywords like I said in a reply above are "hot trends", something happens that triggers a sudden amount of searches for a while, but it eventually fades away.

      SEO is also part of the competition increase, since people start backlinking, the backlinks get indexed and therefore the amount of "competition" increases.

      When you go to Google and do a search for a keyword in quotation marks, it's done to measure the amount of competing websites for that keyword.

      By putting your keyword search in "keyword" you will just target that particular keyword or words. In other words, only sites using that keyword(s) will show. You will then know just how many sites you are competing with, or otherwise.

      Yes, by encasing your search phrase in quotation marks, Google will only return pages that have that exact phrase somewhere within that page or it's header content.

      You can go one further to find the 'real' competition by using things like intitle:"search phrase" or allintitle:"searchphrases" you can even use inurl:"search phrase"

      Keep in mind you may not maintain that position because the web 2.0 type backlinks you have lose quality as they get older (they go down the listings and off the pages on the sites that have higher google page rank).

      Having said that using a .com domain name that exactly matches a keyword phrase is one of the biggest SEO secrets I've seen.

      There's a good chance you'll maintain a good ranking simply by doing that.

      You're also likely to pick up other longer tail keyword phrase traffic by having the 10 articles on your blog at that domain.

      So even if your google ranking drops you'll probably still be picking up good traffic.

      Now if you take some of the money you made and hire an article writer and start adding 2-14 new blog posts a week to your blog (and also submit them to ezinearticles and other article sites linking back to other pages on your blog) then you should end up with some really exciting traffic within the next 30-90 days.

      Kindest regards,

      First you need to point the DNS settings from GoDaddy (or wherever you register domains) to ghs.google.com I believe.

      OR you could always pay $10 and set it up immediately through Blogger in that same Publishing page.

    Pretty much what I did once. Found a keyword to rank for and built backlinks like crazy. Mostly social links and blog comments. It lasted for 3 days, until I disappeared completely for that keyword. (was still indexed though)

    To be honest, I think the same might happen for you. Hopefully it doesn't. Let us know how it works out in the long run.

    Would you by any chance be willing to mention the niche?

      Personally I like Wordtracker and the SEO Book Tool, I'm not saying the Google External is absolutely useless, I still use it sometimes in cross reference.

      Like Magic Mel pointed out, not one tool is entirely accurate (actually all are based on estimates) but the Google External is for PPC research, not for SEO.

      In fact, my best article's keywords say in the Google tool "Not enough data" and here's why (Google's very own definition):

      "Approximate Search Volume [Previous Month]
      This column shows the approximate number of search queries matching your keywords that were performed on Google and the search network in the previous calendar month. This number is specific to your targeted country and language as well as your selection from the Match Type drop-down menu."

      A tool that gathers data like that can be incredibly useful for PPC, but useless for SEO. A tool that depends on an ENTIRE PREVIOUS calendar month and on REGIONAL search results is definitely something I wouldn't depend on.

      Whoever is using it for SEO alone is leaving money on the table. The keywords that drive the MOST traffic for me don't even have "...enough data" in the Google tool.

        Daniel,

        How do you define the difference? You will use PPC research the estimate how many searches a day a keyword phrase has to determine if you should bid on it or not.

        For SEO, you research how many searches per day to see if you should try and rank for it or not.

        To me the method is different but the research and data I need is exactly the same.

          In theory yes, in practice no.

          The fact that the Google tool calculates results based on the previous calendar month + the specific country + the specific language is already enough for me to stay away from it, although I'm not saying it's useless.

          That is a dreadful combination:

          1. Outdated search results based on the previous calendar month. "Not enough data" if it's for keywords being searched to date, or 2 weeks ago for that matter.

          PLUS

          2. If you are in a different country or you speak a different language you will get different results, the whole point of Internet Marketing is appealing to a global market. A keyword that gets let's say 3 daily search results in the US and 1,000 in Australia is being COMPLETELY overlooked because some people rely on that tool.

          I'm sorry, but that is just leaving A LOT of money and targeted traffic on the table.

            Just a quick point on this. You can select any Country you like. You can also choose "All Countries and Territories" for the whole "global market" experience.

              Yes, but not all languages. That and point 1 are more than enough to stay away from it. Or at least not to rely on it as your main tool.

                Regarding the language. I am not seeing the point here. If anything,
                it is irrelevant. If you're positioning your articles and sites for XYZ
                keywords, then you're targeting one language only anyway? If a
                searcher types your keywords in a different language, google
                won't return your website anyway. I don't get Thai results when
                I look for stuff...

                Mind you it is gone 2am here and I may be missing something.

                  One is typos, that tool doesn't seem to pick up on the most common ones, I think it might be related to the language.

                  The other is words and/or phrases used from another language, like popular french cliches or something of that sort that everyone understands.

                  Since the Google tool bases itself on a specific language, it doesn't seem to pick up on any of those (the others do).

                  You might not give much relevance to this but I do, because I have found amazing keywords that the Google tool doesn't pick up because of these small details.

                  I still use it, not saying it's useless, but you just shouldn't rely on it alone (same goes for the other keyword tools).

    Good work!

    Another great point about this is that you *could* do it for other key terms related to the product, create a "mini network" of sites that all point to the product and then sell the network for like 10X weekly income or something... because keeping those ranks is going to take a lot more work than whipping up a simple blog I think.

      Well usually keyword research is done for specific niches you have previously chosen. For example, the weight loss niche, you go and type related broad terms such as fat ; weight ; exercise etc...

      Out of those broad terms (usually 1-2 words) long tail keywords that people search for daily stem out and those are the ones you grab, the beauty of long tails is that they usually have low competition, especially those with 3+ words. Another great thing about really long tail keywords is that 1 can have many smaller keywords within it.

      Well, like it has been said before all of these search results are based on estimates. What I do know is that the keyword tools such as SEO Book and WT vary their results daily, so I take it it's based on daily data.

      Don't take my word for it though.

        That's promising to know. It is certainly a good idea to utilise more
        than one keyword tool. The best often being your brain!

    Then I used a social bookmarking submission automated software (BIG Mike's SocialBot) to get backlinks to all the pages of my blog (every blog post is considered a page and so are the comments for each post).

    I use SocialBot as well but was under the impression that if you bookmark a page on every one of the 100+ sites that it would do you more harm than good. Are you saying this is not true? Cause damnit it would save me a lot of time having to fill out a new profile everytime I wanted to submit a new bookmark because the one I was using has now gone through 30 to 40 sites. Far as I know there is not a button to make it only submit to only a few sites after you've filled out all the log in forms for all the sites.

    Only thing that I can say is this, if you want to know whether a keyword is worth going after either in seo or ppc campaigns, then just look at the ppc ads and see how long them ads are running, the longer the ad runs then you kinda get the idea that the keyword must have some pull, if an advertiser is spending money on keywords months after months or maybe even years, they sure as hell wished they could have had it ranked oragnically instead of paying for adwords.

    Most adwords campaigns are up there because the webmaster/business owner cannot get that high organic ranking, so they use adwords to have their site/campaign in the spotlight.

    This method basically lets you know if some keywords are really worth it and while others are a waste of time.

    From the results gathered from google kw tool and seobook's tool, I can only say this:

    - I know few established websites that make daily sales from organic traffic and their kw aren't displayed (= no traffic) in seobook's tool.
    - I know at least one website with a good spot in google getting little to no traffic from some keywords given by the kw tool(google's) as kw with many daily searches (1k)

    My conclusion: the truth is out there

      Through a keyword research tool, no keyword tool is entirely accurate, but most give a fairly decent estimate.

        I find the Google Keyword tool to be pretty accurate comparing search numbers with what I get to my sites. How can SEO Book's tool be even remotely accurate?

        How do you explain this:

        Keyword phrase: tight braless tops

        Google Keyword tool: [exact] "Not enough data"
        SEO Book's tool: 2,174 searches per day on Google

        I cant believe those numbers are accurate.
        They aren't. Like you, my own stats have proven it. But others don't have to take our word for it, they can prove it to themselves. Run an adwords campaign, or get top rankings for the keyword. It won't be hard. Then you'll see first hand just how wrong it is.

        By the way, for those who don't know, Wordtracker numbers are estimates for all of the major search engines, not any one search engine. So, when it says "tight braless tops" is getting 2,160 daily searches, that is the total daily searches from every major search engine. That doesn't mean 2,160 daily searches at Google. That means, in order to have a shot at each of those daily visitors, you'd have to get top rankings at every search engine they consider major.

          Just a word of warning... Be careful on what you uncover by doing your competitive searches. I've been burned a number of times thinking I found a killer keyword with little competition - only to find a day later that the results Google initially showed were way off.

          I'll give you an example of one I found this weekend: "low cost insurance"

          Targeted with thousands of searches a day. Initially Big G told me there were only 2,500 competing pages. I suspected that was wrong and the next day it showed 250k. Still not bad, but not nearly as great as I initially thought.

          This happens to me on a weekly basis.
          Yes, good advice. I always check back on the competition of some keywords on an almost daily basis.

    This sort of happened by accident.

    I was doing some keyword research for one of my clients and stumbled upon a long tail keyword phrase (5 words) that has 4,000 daily search results and at that time (one week ago) it had less than 3,000 competition.

    Anyway, I was able to grab the hyphenated .com domain for that keyword.

    Being way too lazy that day (and hangovered as well) I couldn't bother myself to build a website, I went to Blogger opened a blog, made 10 blog posts optimized with the keyword, transfered the domain to that blog and submitted the site map to the search engines.

    Then I used a social bookmarking submission automated software (BIG Mike's SocialBot) to get backlinks to all the pages of my blog (every blog post is considered a page and so are the comments for each post).

    Take into account that the keyword is completely informative, it doesn't really have commercial value, but I thought what the heck ANYTHING can be monetized. So I went to Clickbank grabbed a related product and spread my affiliate link all over the blog.

    Today I just did a Google search for the keyword and I'm in position #1. I logged to my Clickbank account and I already made 7 sales in ONE day.

    All this costed me $8 for the domain name, about 2-3 hours worth of work and it will make me passive residual income forever without me having to lift a single finger.

    Myths Dispelled:

    1. Hyphenated domains are crap for SEO.
    2. Keywords need to have commercial value (This proves ANYTHING can be monetized).
    3. Making fast cash is not possible.
    4. Out ranking authority sites is hard (My 1 week old PR0 blog is out ranking PR8 websites for that keyword).
    5. Mass instant backlinks don't work.

    Enjoy!

    Dan
    Hey Dan,

    Awesome work dude ... got to love SEO for sure.
    Nothing beats free traffic, I have several niche similar to
    what your talking about however they are commercial in
    nature but have little competition.

    Hyphenated domains ... I steer clear these days. However
    when you can not find a .com, .net or .org that is not
    hyphenated then they are fine.

    That being said I think Google does prefer non hyphenated
    domains.

    Nice thread about building quick traffic and making some bucks.

      HI Daniel,

      When I saw this my initial question was how do you do that?

      Is this done through the tool in your google account to identify how many sites are pointing to your site.

      Thanks

        You can use either your Google Analytics account, or you can use a research tool such as the one provided by SEO Digger.

    Good stuff Dan. Talk about good ROI. A lot of people say that SEO takes longer than PPC, but if you want to do PPC right, it's not exactly a short job either. I'd choose SEO over PPC any day.

      Me too Li, I see PPC as short term traffic, which you have to repeat and be aware of constantly.

      SEO after the proper implementation and enough backlink building can be a set and forget, long term traffic approach. Plus it's organic and therefore even more targeted.

      PPC in my eyes is only good for testing niches and markets, imagine investing all that money you would spend into a viable PPC campaign into an SEO campaign instead. Much better ROI in my opinion.

        Dan, I can't agree with you more. For me, PPC = more work and more stress. You are forced to work on it all the time, otherwise you lose money!

        SEO you just have to do these things right once, and it's pretty much done forever. You just leave it, maintain a little bit every now and then if you want to, and you can still expect traffic and money from it in years to come. Best part is that it's free.

        I never understand when people say PPC is less work than SEO, because it honestly isn't. There's a lot more to worry about when you're doing PPC.

    Great post - and couldn't agree more!

    Finding keywords like this is a real buzz, I found one the other day like this, great feeling. I always try to find these keywords, you can always find keywords that are better in terms of supply & demand, but to find them on this kind of scale with serious search numbers is rare.

    Keyword research is the most important step of SEO in my opinion.

    Thanks

      Can you please be more specific?

      If you mean the backlink package Angela V. Edwards sends, you can add multiple backlinks in all those sites, it's just that in some you need to have more than 1 account.

      In terms of monetization I use both adsense and affiliate links for niche related affiliate programs.

I have used tools such as googles free keyword tool, word tracker, SEO Books keyword tool, Keyword Elite, Keyword Analyzer and Micro Niche Finder.

    I have to agree that hyphenated domain names are not bad for search engines. The problem with them lies with humans. They cause many errors for direct targeted traffic that are finding your domain by typing in the URL. They likely end up at someone elses domain.

    I have used both hyphenated and "longword" domain names, and I prefer to simply combine short, long tail keywords into an unhyphenated domain name. Customers remember it better, and make fewer mistakes looking for it.

    I definitely agree that you can get set up cheaply using a blog though the cheapest I find domain names for in reliable registrars is 9.95 per year, and a host that is good for a single domain is 4.95 per month.

    So that is an annual cost of approximately $70.

    Using the social bookmarks and is, in fact, the fastest way I found to raise your blog up in the ranking for your selected 2 or 3 primary key words.

    But adding your RSS feeds to it, boosts my traffic by at least 10% or more.

    So, those are my thoughts, I know it works. Great thread.

    I have never heard anyone say ever that "Hyphenated domains are crap for SEO."

    I have never heard that, and I have certainly never said that. BUT, what I have said is that Hyphenated Domains are not generally recommended, because when the human remembers your domain name and types it from memory, the human will forget to type in the hyphens in 95% of cases. And when the domain they don't expect to come up comes up, few of those people will do a search to figure out what they got wrong.

    p.s. I have been able to do the same with many niche topics. The only alteration I offer in this strategy is to buy the domain, and put a Wordpress Blog on it.

    I refuse to point a domain at a Blogger blog, because the Blogger team (Google staff) can decide your blog is spammy and delete it.

    I refuse to let a third-party have that much control over my future success.

    • I've been following this for the last couple of days and it prompted me to revisit one of my sites which has been really useful.

      As part of this I accidentally stumbled on a series of long tailed keywords on the same subject which I think I can find something related for in Clickbank. Each of the keywords seem to have high searches (whilst I accept there might be some questions over accuracy - but they are comparable), combined with extremely low competing sites.

      My question is do I create a blog for each keyword and optimize it for that keyword alone or do I create one blog and write several articles around each keyword? Is one method likely to perform better than the other?

        Andrew, for a short term type of results I would suggest different blogs with articles on the same keywords.

        However, if you are going to continue blogging on a constant basis I would suggest 1 single niche blog for long term results.

          Thanks Daniel,

          I did a bit of research into my subject area today around my keywords today. In 30 minutes I came up with 35 blog article ideas.

          That raised it's own question. I tried to do some research on a site map to submit to Google. I've seen different suggestions about what a sitemap really is. Assuming it's simply a list of all the pages in my blog (which I'm hoping to do in Blogger while I build my confidence), would you (or anyone for that matter) recommend I create, say 10 entires and enter a sitemap to google and then enter a new sitemap each time I create a new entry.

          Or have I got this whole sitemap thing totally wrong.

          Thanks

            Blogger automatically generates a sitemap type file, it can be found in www .yourbloggerblog.com/atom.xml

            You can submit that if you wish.

            Or, if you were to use Wordpress grab the "Google XML Sitemaps" plugin by Arne Brachhold.

    I agree with Alex Sol. There are 1,000's of keywords that have Low Competition.

    (This is not a plug, there is no link here) I have been using Market Samurai, and I have found many keywords like this.

    Where my mistake lays, is that I am not sure if I am using the right AdSense Blocks etc... for my site.

    Personally, my goal is to have 25 to 50 sites making $5 to $10 a day. (Using Adsense and affiliate products, before I move into making my own product)

    I was wondering if buying additional key word rich domains would help generate more traffic to my site? According to this post it sounds like it but not sure. If you do recommend buying them how would you promote them?

    As an example lets say my sites name is "example.com" and I want to buy additional domains that are keyword rich and set them up as permenant forwards. So I would buy ezample.com, common-examples.com, instance.com, case.com, etc (words that are synonyms, mis spellings and or phrases with "-" to example). I would attempt to capture mis-spelling typed into the browser. I am not sure if the Search engines would recognize these additional domains and help me rank better for these other words? Your input is appreciated...

      That does work, but actually USING the domains and powering them up with related articles for example is far more powerful than just redirecting.

    Do you put your affiliate links within the keyword phrases of your blog post or are you putting your affiliate links as separate banners/text links in between posts or on the sidebar?

    Does .net .biz etc. instead of .com really matter with Google?? Everything else being equal, I've read elsewhere it does not affect your search rankings (although it obviously might have other effects).

    From a search engine standpoint, you would think it doesn't since it is their job to give you the most relevant info regardless.

    Thanks. Good post.

    I still suspect how wordtracker data could be more accurate.

    I quickly checked for a couple keywords,

    For example, WT daily search is 14 for a keyword, google shows about 6000 exact monthly search(not broad), and google analytics shows that our traffic for that keyword is around 2500.

    It is same with other 2 keywords that I checked. I know just comparing 2-3 keywords is not enough. Maybe if more people shares their experience, we can see the picture more clearly.

      Hey Daniel,

      Thanks for a great thread. Unfortunately I only saw this last night. Anyways, better late than never right.
      I already bought a domain name and transferred it to blogger to try and leverage out blogger SEO benefits.
      I went through the whole thread and I didn't catch the following two points addressed. Would very much appreciate if you could address them very briefly please.

      1. You said you made 10 blog posts - I don't suppose these are like 10 pages of 500 word articles when you say 'blog posts' right?. How long were they roughly, in words? Now that you have matured five more months as an IMer after this site, what is the optimal word length for such a blog post that you would recommend?

      2. You said you made 10 blog posts optimized for the keyword - does this mean all 10 pages/blog posts were optimized for the same kw as the domain name? Or were the 10 posts optimized for related kw for LSI?

      Thanks Daniel, great job again and hope you have had many more successes after that point. Sorry to hear that sales have dried out for this site.

        Hey Chucky,

        1. They are about 200 words, but apparently search engines love long content so you should give that a try as well.

        2. They are all optimized around the keyword I wanted to rank for, it doesn't have to be in the domain name necessarily but that does help.

    Good Job Daniel.
    I am still so curious with your keyword.
    Maybe you have a spell in your finger. =)

      Well, there's no point in hiding it anymore, it's not making any sales now.

      The keyword is "top 10 scariest movies ever" and this happened in october (*hint* ).

      The site has dropped to position 5 or so for that keyword and surprisingly it holds a PR3 with only ten 100-200 word posts.

      Note: I haven't even touched that blog since October.

        Great work Daniel. I'm curious, what CB product did you promote for this niche?

    Thanks for the info. There are millions of keyword phrases out there that get tons of traffic with little competition. I just wonder how long is it going to take before huge corporations fill up all the top 10 spots of the search engines.

    Wow! But I wanna ask something - you're mentioning 4000 search results per day, but Adwords lists it as 20 and Seobook doesn't even return results for that keyword?

    I mean, time has passed but how can it have changed that much?

      It was probably a Halloween trend or something.

      But why don't you Google: Business Consulting

      I've been dancing between page 1-2 out of 42,900,000 sites (4,230,000 competition under quotes).

      And according to the google keyword tool, more than 300,000 people search for it monthly.
