Google Keyword Research

Posted by on Dec.23, 2012, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

When you do Google keyword research there is a wonderful keyword tool that they have for you to use. Their keyword tool lets you wade through a whole database of words and phrases to help you find your niche and the best keyword to put to use for that niche.

Not only can you find the best keywords to use to bring traffic to your site you can also research statistics of that keyword to see how many searches it gets every month. The best keyword is one with little competition and a high search volume.

This may take some time but sometimes, if you look long and hard enough, you might just find a keyword that will be just like finding a little nugget of gold good enough to bring you all the riches you desire.

Here is what you do:

Open a new tab on your browser and go to the Google keyword research tool located at “adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal.” Type in the keyword you want to start with then type in the captcha letters and lick the search button.

What will come up is a list of related words and phrases the tool generates for you to choose from. Like I said choose a keyword or phrase that has low competition and a high search volume. Picking one that has a high competition will not allow you to rank high on the search results pages.

Now, when you find one that you think is a good one, check how your keyword for trending. Put your mouse over the keyword or phrase and then click on the spyglass icon. Google Trends will show you when, during the entire year, your search term is the most popular.
This is a great feature if you have picked a niche that is seasonal.

The next thing you should do is go to Google and type your chosen keyword into the search bar. How many ads do you see on the right hand side of the results page? If there are less than five then you should keep looking for another keyword to use. Less than five means that this is probably not a good niche because no one is searching for it.

If there are five or more ads on the right hand side of the results page then you are golden and this is a keyword you should keep and use.

The keyword tool will also show you how much your keyword is making per click. The average CPC for a good keyword is anything above $0.50 per click. You want to make money right? Then pick your keywords carefully and make sure that they have a higher CPC.

Google keyword research tool was the basis of another company’s study on the top 20 highest CPC keywords. “Insurance” tops that list of keywords with over 24% of all keywords used and a CPC of over $47. That is absolutely insane! You would probably never find a good keyword to use in that niche but if you did, WOW! You would be laughing all the way to the bank.


Marketing On Internet

Posted by on Dec.02, 2012, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

Marketing on internet is a very effective way to make money online but with all the rules to follow and things you need to avoid doing it can be quite the learning curve to figure it all out. You have to have the where-with-all to stick with it to be successful. If you are to survive in this very competitive internet world you need to find a way to get to the top and then stay there.

Learning how to get to the top can be confusing and intimidating and many people start but let it all get to them and then give up. What they do not realize is that just when they decided to give up is also just about the time they were about to start being successful. It probably would have taken just one more push and they would have started making money and realized all of their dreams.

Your marketing on internet adventure begins with creating a website to promote your product. Once you get your website up and live it doesn’t end there, however. Now you need to get people to your website. This is called driving traffic. There are several ways to do this.

The first way is called search engine optimization, or SEO. When you are optimized for the search engines it means that you rank high on the results page. Just where you want to be. Search engine optimization starts with keyword research. You want your million dollar idea to make you a million dollars, right? You need the right keywords to make that happen.

Start by looking for some decent keyword research tools. Lots are free to use and then look for keywords that are targeted to your product. You don’t want a keyword that everyone is searching for. That is too much competition and you will not get ranked very high if someone else is already using it. Look for keywords that have a low competition and high searches.

For instance, a keyword that has like 1500 searches a month may not seem like a good one but it also means that there is less competition for this keyword. This may just be your golden nugget. You might have better luck finding what you need, too, if you use long-tailed keywords. A long-tailed keyword is just more than one word used to describe your product.

To have your website completely optimized you need to make sure you have your keywords all in the right places. Places like your URL, in anchor text, as a title of your article and several places in the article itself. Be careful, though, if you use the keyword too much the search engines will consider this “keyword stuffing”. You may not get banned but it will not be in your best interest. The search engines will bust you down in the ranks, so just be careful how many times you use your keywords.

This information just scratches the surface of all you need to know for marketing on internet. My advice is to find a good internet marketing course and follow the steps to a tee to get your million dollar idea out to the general public the right way.


Internet Marketing Strategy

Posted by on Nov.21, 2012, under Affiliate Marketing No Comments

Making a six figure income seems to be the goal for many an online business people but what exactly do you have to do to achieve such an awesome result? Is it even possible? Yes, it is possible and many people have done that very thing. They did it with a completely mapped out internet marketing strategy. The biggest danger some people run into is they forget to treat it like what it really is, a business that will take time and patience to grow.

The lure of a five or six figure income can make people react so out of character and irresponsibly. It can make them do things they wouldn’t normally do. It’s just weird. If you really want to make that much money online your best bet is to throw out everything you think you know about the internet and start from scratch with your own internet marketing strategy. Having a good strategy is half the battle.

For one thing, do not think that there is any system or technique that will make it happen quickly. Of course, the term ‘quickly’ can be somewhat deceptive. How quick is quick? Most off line businesses don’t even expect to be profitable for at least the first year and maybe even longer if they have invested a lot of money into buying a building.

Online, your most important job will be to find the best ways to get people to your website. This is called getting traffic. There are hundreds of ways you can go about doing this and lots of them are free to do. You just need to learn the methods, and you will need to invest some time to test and tweak the methods you choose to get the maximum benefit.

When you get to the point that you know how to use a certain technique and you know that it will work, the sky is pretty much the limit. You can then start promoting several products at one time. The more products you can successfully promote the more money you can make.

I think it is pretty easy to see how much potential this can have. When I say that you can make as much money as you want online, I mean it. As long as you do it consistently, treat it like a business, don’t expect something for nothing, and are willing to learn as you go, a huge income is practically guaranteed.

By following an internet marketing strategy your extra income is well within reach. Just do yourself a favor and stay away from the products and systems that promise you can make tens of thousands of dollars in your first month. You can make that kind of money but usually not in the first month. What they do not tell you is that it will have the same learning curve as any other system. So, find a good system, learn it, work it, give it time to develop, and you will get there.


Internet Marketing Products

If you are interested in earning extra money from home and have products that you think would sell, internet marketing products is the way to go. You probably have made some purchases from the internet, right, so why not get your stuff out there and have others do the same for you?

If you just want to supplement your income or eventually want to “retire” from your 9-5 job, internet marketing products can give you the freedom you want.

First, you need a good website. You can either learn to do this yourself or hire someone to do it for you. With all the rules and regulations that the search engines have put forth, if you have the budget or know someone who can do it, it might be easier to have someone do it for you. If you are the adventurous sort then go ahead and learn how to do it yourself. It may take a little longer but then you will have the knowledge and can tweak your new site as you need to.

There are plenty of software programs you can buy that will help you learn how to make your own website. You new website has to be as unique as your product or service is. So many people have turned their hobby into money making machines just by having a very well designed website.

To get the word out after the website is up you can create your own blog. By keeping the posts up to date and interesting then your customers will keep coming back to see what is new. You can link your blog to your website so it is easy for your customers to get to you. A blog can generate lots of traffic to your website.

Another good way to drive traffic to your website is to write articles pertaining to your product or service. Writing articles and submitting them to the article directories can get you a lot of traffic that you might not get otherwise. Just be sure that you do not submit what is called duplicate content. Every article for every directory has to be original content. You can’t write one article and submit it to all the directories. You have to write an original article for each submission.

Learn how to use the social media sites for more than keeping in touch with your friends. The social media sites can offer you ways to increase your customer service and you can offer coupons or special deals to new or existing customers. You can get direct feedback from your customers, as well. There are millions of social media users all over the world. What a way to go global in a very short time, huh? Think of the possibilities.

You can also sign up for a merchant account at one of the many merchant sites and offer an affiliate program to those who are interested. Affiliates will help promote your product and service for a commission of the sales they help make. Internet marketing products can be the difference between just making ends meet and never having to worry about money ever again.

Whatever you decide to do with an internet marketing pdf, you should probably know a little bit more about what it is and how you can get one for yourself.

First things first, PDF stands for Portable Document File. These are often made into digital ebooks (online marketers have been using ebooks for one purpose or another long before there was such a thing as a Kindle).

This format makes it easy on everyone, easy for the person who is putting the book together and easy for the person who is either reading it online or downloading it to their computer to read and / or print later.

You can do the same. There are many ways you can get your own ebook. The best, in my opinion, is to write one yourself. Just pick one topic that is relevant to your niche and find some information about that topic. Write it down on a word document than find one of dozens of websites online that will convert your document to a PDF format for free.

That’s it. You now have your very own ebook enticement to give away to anyone who visits your website or signs up for your list.
