Doing Keyword Research To Find Targeted Traffic For Your SiteContinued
Doing this creates a string of obvious search terms that you would never get from a generic keyword tool. You are all but guaranteed to capture your target process somewhere along the path you have created and selling to this type of targeted traffic almost guarantees success.
Sticking with the theme of avoiding too much reliance on the Google Keyword Tool is that a great way to find great keywords for your market is to simply ask your market what they want to read.
You can also search for problems that your target audience may be having by looking in forums and in Yahoo! Answers. By finding the problems, you can then find the keywords and phrase that people are actually searching for so that they can find the answers.
Yahoo! Answers - Even while the rest of Yahoo! sees a continued drop in traffic and activity, Yahoo Answers just chugging along. Hundreds of questions are posted in each section of the website every day, including within your niche. Any good question can be turned into a sale, so identifying common questions in your niche can and will lead to great rankings and higher sales numbers.
Niche Forums - Forum traffic is not what it used to be but forum still work great for keyword ideas if you are operating within an evergreen niche. The same questions have a tendency to keep popping up in these types of markets, and a consistent phrasing will reveal itself as well as you go through forum archives. An entire campaign can be built on an hour or two of forum searching, if you remain disciplined.
Think outside the box and get into the mind of your customer to find the keywords that will actually benefit the customer, resulting in much more targeted traffic to your site.
