Monthly Keyword Search Count for New Niche Site

I was listening to Mark Ling discuss on how to go after keywords for building a niche site. He said to go after keywords with at least 1500 monthly search volume. What about top end search volume? Should it be 50,000, 100,000? I don't want to end up in the bottom of Google's heap!

Thanks!

Mark

You're right! There are more factors that determine how good a niche and/or is. For example you might think 1,000,000 searches per month for a keyword is too tough. BUT if none of the sites are targeting the keyword you could have a chance of beating them in the search engine rankings!

We are developing a tool to help you determine whether a market is good or not. Whilst it isn't entirely complete, there is one part in particular that will help with what you're trying to do.

The tool is call Market Strength and you can find it here

Keep an eye out for when it's completed. Until then, just use your best judgment in weighing up search count, and your potential to target the keyword.

Hi everyone,

I joined only three days ago and aplogies if this question is in the wrong place.

Is there a place within affilorama where the meaning of the terminology used in the Market Strength software is explained? I looked for something and it returned as challenging, what does it mean? Are there any other words within this section which may come up on other tests etc so please let me have a full list if possible.

Thank you,
Syed

Syed,

Based on my experience I saw 4 types of level. They are:
Excellent
Good
Average
Challenging

Keywords marked as "Challenging" will need more SEO efforts from you to rank highly on the SERPs.
You have to use your judgment if you are to invest time and money to include those type of keywords in your link building campaign. The keywords are competitive because that is where the money is. Don't be afraid to meet these keywords head on and grab them by the horns! As long as you follow what the blueprint says and you experiment to discover more SEO techniques then you should experience success in ranking in the SERPs.

Good luck.


Regards,
Renato
