Paul asks…

How accurate and reliable are statistics from keyword research tools?

My supposed “niche” ‘new online income opportunity’ had a 24-hr search result of 580 according to a very popular keyword research tool when I started optimizing it. For the past 4 months, it has been fluctuating between 450 to 650 which is fine.

Now, for the past 1 week or so, I find that there are “zero” searches being shown in the 24-hr count. On the contrary, my own website is recording more than 100 hits per day through Google organic search itself.

Likewise another of my keyword ‘where is dubai’ that is drawing a traffic of average 150 visits per day through Google organic search has a total search of 20 per day according to this super tool.

Any comments?

I thought I was pretty good in using such tools, but now I wonder if I know to use them at all. For how can such well reckoned and vastly used research tools be wrong?

New Niche Finder answers:

I am not aware of any keyword research tools that are “very accurate,” and at best they tend to be “somewhat helpful.”

There are several issues here. First, no tool is more reliable than the data it is “fed,” and neither Google nor Yahoo provide their search data to third parties. WordTracker uses data from a pool of smaller search engine sites, and often shows high traffic levels for very bizarre search phrases. (In my experience, WordTracker’s data includes “fake traffic” including traffic from other keyword-research bots.)

In addition, even your own data is not complete: you may find that your bidding draws 150 impressions per day for searches for “where dubai” but in fact, your ad might not be shown for 1,000 other searches done each day. (Your data may also be “over-inclusive,” as you may be including searches through the Search Network, which aren’t done at Google, or traffic on the Content Network).

Second, search patterns change over time; the number of searches for “Santa Claus’ address” rises in December and probably zeroes out from January to October. In addition to predictable seasons like that, there are random fluctuations as well as “surges” (when Jay Leno mentions widgets, there may be a bunch of web searches in the next 24 hours).

There are also “cycles” for certain search terms. For example, searches for “porn” peak on weekends (Friday and Saturday night), while searches for “football scores” peak on Sunday and Monday. For some search terms, it’s possible that 80% to 90% of the total searches occur on a single day each week (“lotto numbers”), or even a single day each month or each quarter (“Fed interest rate change”).

Another crucial factor to consider is the activity of “fraud operators,” who use keyword research tools to identify high-bid keywords; when bid amounts rise, those terms attract more fraudulent activity (because fraudsters can make more money from each click than for low-bid terms), increasing volume.

The bottom line is that you should absolutely NEVER rely on any tools to be reliable — not even within an “order of magnitude” — in predicting search volumes for specific keywords or even “keyword families.”

David asks…

How could I generate traffic to my blog?

I have a WordPress blog about make money online niche topic. I am new on net. I would like to get traffic as my traffic is too low. How could I? If anyone is familiar with this problem let me know what you have done to bring traffic to your site.

Thanks
Kawsar

New Niche Finder answers:

Hi-Kawsar,

This is the question we all ask. Well you could pay for traffic but that does not come with guarantees that your visitors will become buyers. If you’re prepared to put in a bit of time and effort, there are free methods of advertising. This is what I suggest you do.

Grab a cup or glass of your favourite drink, find a place to relax where you won’t be disturbed and
watch this set of video tutorials on free ways to advertise. They will guide you step by step on the way to do each method. They are also FREE to you. Nothing to pay.

Best wishes and good luck.
Robert.

Niches to avoid if you have an online store? 10 points?

A thought came into my head yesterday regarding niches and i wanted to find out if it should be considered or not. It’s not just to do with choosing a niche per se, but, specifically one for your e-commerce.
I was wondering if there are niches that sell very very well on ebay but don’t sell good on private websites? What i am saying is, for example, lets take a weightlifter who is looking for wrist straps in the gym, he may not have an account on ebay or amazon but instead types what he is looking for into google and clicks on the results, if he finds something, grand, uses the credit card and buys it. Now, if a mother at home decides her young child could do with some new lego sets, i can just imagine her logging into her ebay (or other) and buying through that instead of google search engine to find any old website selling it.

For me personally, my uncle who isn’t “a computer genius” would generally buy from websites by typing what he needs into google, my aunt who is a little bit more smooth tends to compare and contrast a bit more before she buys and users ebay and amazon, so giving the fact that they also tend to buy very different products, i understand there has to be some niche products that are more suited to ebay as their customers are generally ebay users and some niche products that are more suited to e-commerce as their customers and generally “google search engine” users.

Please share your opinions and feel free to give some advice on which niches may be more suited to ebay vs e-commerce.

10 points.

I currently have two online stores using a subscription plan from http://www.izzonet.com/ with two different niches — Female Handbags and Indoor Plants.

Sadly, my handbags are not earning as greatly as my indoor plants. It probably has a lot to do with the lack of keyword research for this niche. I am fairly new to online marketing and a lot of these things didn’t really occur to me when I started the business.

My advice to you is to do a lot of research and avoid topics such as handbags, women’s clothes and shoes.

Any views on this new dating service?

a new streamed online personals site that i read about in the press and it claims to reach over 2.5 million members in the UK alone by one of three niche categories – wow, so that’s a pretty big following already then! and it can be found at http://www.ministryofdating.co.uk/ It is professionally laid out and offers three unique streams to choose from, Singles, Over 40’s, and Saucy Singles.

This will be a big threat to match, that’s why i’ve joined just to check it out, i for one don’t want to miss out on the next big development in the online dating scene since match launched affinity, what do you guys and gals think, worth a try?

New Niche Finder answers:

This sounds more like a promotion of the website than anything else!

I don’t think any one dating service is better than the others. I wouldn’t use any of them!

This question looks like spam, but why not answer it anyhow: there are no good MLMs. MLM’s are schemes and scams. Even well established national ones are extremely difficult to profit from. Try starting your own real business.

I can show you how to become a real entrepreneur.
