Here's A Method To Find Micro-Niche Keywords With Virtually NO Competition!

Hey Warriors!

Just thought I'd "give back" a little and share one of my methods for finding keywords with a high search volume and low competition.

Just to give you an idea, one keyword I found had a Estimated traffic volume of 27 visitors/day with a competition of something like 900 in market samurai...I ranked #1 in a matter of days (google danced me to #5 for now but I'll be back up there soon)

There's actually 2 methods here, so here goes.


1. Capitalizing on Misspelled Words

Browse through a list of various medical conditions and pop the more difficult-to-spell words into market samurai, Google Keyword Tool, whatever.

You'll find that a lot of misspellings have a decent search volume and very low competition and low QUALITY competition.

Once you've found a potential Keyword, make sure to google it. Sometimes google autocorrects spelling, but sometimes it doesn't!

Every once in a while, the #1 Spot will be occupied by Wikipedia, but oftentimes, it won't be because of the misspelling.


You don't have to use medical terms, obviously, but these are naturally great for a few reasons:

- People are searching for information or a solution to a very personal problem

- This lends itself to providing quality content. You can't make a niche site based around HIV, for example, and not provide visitors with accurate, up to date information and still bear the sight of your own face in the mirror.

- Adsense is great about serving up medicine/health related ads that are very targeted.

- There are many health related CB products

- In my experience thus far, chances are good that there's an Exact Match Domain available


2. Medical Terms

This is similar to the above strategy, except you're searching for correctly spelled medical terms and then browsing through the long tail keyword suggestions related to that term.

The thing about medical terms, diseases and conditions is that people look for VERY specific information, e.g. "symptoms of carcinoma in women", etc.

While there are TONS of authority sites answering broader questions related to the term, chances are that there's no exact match domain focusing in on just one aspect of the problem specific to just one segment of the population.

Chances are also good that if there ARE sites answering that question, they are easily beatable for the #1 spot in Google.



Word of caution: Making niche sites about diseases is seriously freaking depressing and will turn you into a temporary hypochondriac! ..."OH man...I have that symptom...crap...that one too! I HAVE MALARIA!!!"


Well, there you have it!

Feel free to ask any questions and enjoy creating niche sites free of annoying competition!


Best of Luck
Vic

    How good do medical terms convert into cash though? Most people are looking for a solution to a problem that you may not be able to provide online no?

      I haven't experimented with Clickbank yet but like I said before, adsense does a really good job of serving up relevant ads on medical terms.

      If you can get 1 site making you a couple bucks a day and then keep making sites in this way, you'll be @ $100/day in months.

      Just read Adsense's policies. All of them!

        And then you can enjoy that $100 a day for a week or two till google bitchslaps you j/k.

        I suppose there would be medical related things that did convert with ebooks etc... Should make sure of this before you put too much work into it though.

    Misspellings - that's an idea I haven't thought of. I am currently working on a medical term keyword with huge monthly searches. Only problem is I'm writing the articles myself so it's a pain in the @$$ really.

    @pdrs: I think medical terms make good conversion. People are looking for solution to their problems. If you refer them to a CB product or some affiliate product that provides the solution, chances are they'll readily buy it.

    Targeting mis-spells is always a good idea.

    I can't speak on targeting the disease niche but just to add to the OP, instead of directly targeting misspelled words with niche sites, whenever I see them in my analytics, I will "include" them in my sites to further reach more targeted traffic.

    You know, about 2 years ago I wouldve thought this to have been a fantastic way of making money. Now I see it as downright unethical.

    Let me tell you, its not a very nice feeling to receive an email from an elderely man whos 65 year old wife is dying in a hospital bed, they have no money, and theyre pleading with you for a "free copy" of your ebook.

    There are some things as marketers that should be left alone.

    I wish I could say that I didnt make this mistake myself.

      @ramone_johnny,

      That sounds like an emotional experience man.

      Since I don't know the details of what you were doing at the time, I can't comment on the situation.

      However, I stated above that it is our ethical DUTY to provide accurate, up-to-date information consistent with the terms people are using to find our websites.

      Likewise, if we intend to sell an ebook on our site that claims to help treat cancer or whatever the case may be, it's our responsibility to BUY it and ensure its accuracy to the very best of our ability.

      Do some research, consult with your doctor friends, etc.

      If you don't, good luck sleeping at night.

      If you've done the right thing and you sell an information product that can really help somebody who is ill, you are providing a value to them and it's no different than buying the advice of a doctor, which, by the way, is increasingly bad advice the more that big Pharma lines their pockets and preventative medicine and nutrition are watered down in med school curricula.

      Don't get me wrong, there are many fantastic, competent doctors out there who don't stuff drugs in your face everytime you cough. But medicine is increasingly falling into the hands of patients and enjoying an emperical risorgimento. Check out curetogether.com, 4 Hour Body, etc.

      Whoa...did I just rant? Sweeet.

      No one is stopping you from giving away a free copy of your ebook to somebody who can't pay for it and needs the information :-)

      I hear what you're saying dude, but I really believe that if you go about this ethically, there's absolutely no problem with it.

      Regards,
      Vic

            Ok, it took me a while to find one but here's a freebie.

            Feel free to use it.

            Just call "it" so the next reader doesn't make a niche site along with you!


            There's an autoimmune disease called SJ√-GREN'S syndrome. Take note of the spelling.

            When you try a couple misspellings in google, the highest search volume misspelled result is "sjorgen". Notice that it is singular. Google DOES autocorrect the plural misspelling "sjorgens" but NOT the singular misspelling "sjorgen".


            Sjorgen

            Global monthly searches = 590
            CPC = 0.14
            Allintitle: > 1000
            Allinurl: > 1000


            Don't worry about the low CPC, because you'll be attracting visitors to your site based on their mispelling of the word but providing them with information based on the correct spelling.

            In this case, the highest CPC keyword is "sjogrens syndrome", which has a CPC of 0.40 cents.

            Sure, that's not a very high CPC, but when you check the first couple of spots in google, NONE of them are top level domains and - I don't have my keyword tool handy on this computer - but I'm willing to bet they're easily beatable for #1.


            HOW did I come up with this keyword?

            I know a person with this disorder.

            But there's nothing stop you from googling "uncommon skin diseases" or "rare ear conditions" or whatever.


            Is there an exact match domain available for this term?

            You bet. A dot com, no less.


            With such a crappy search volume, why bother?

            Because!

            Even if this site makes you just 10 bucks a month, it is on autopilot and compounded with the rest of your niche sites, will be a faithful ant in your antfarm of online income.

            Uh...sorry for the crappy analogy. You know what I mean!


            Hpapy Hutning!


            Important p.s.

            Make sure to Google the term and check that the misspelled word isn't some dude's name or the make of some Swedish car or something or your efforts will be in vain.

    SHHHH. You're not supposed to tell people about targeting misspelled keywords / phrases that get a ton of searches!

    I thought that if you misspell a word on Google it will show you the listings for the correct spelling of the term and you have to actually click another link if you want to see the listings for the mispelt word?

    Is that not the case?
