Keyword Question

Postby Guitarnut » Sun Nov 12, 2006 4:51 pm

I have found what appears to be a good niche. The target keyword phrase has little competition and the number 1 site position on Google only has 454 inbound links which mostly appear from within their own site. My question is this.....When I search the same keyword phrase using quotes, there is virtually no competition according to Google Adwords search. What is the significance of this to me, if any at all?

Thanks in advance for your advice and input. Oh how I love this forum!
Thanks everybody!!

I assume this phrase gets a fair number of searches?

If so, one of two things is going on:

- you've found a diamond in the ruff :D
- or, this phrase doesnt convert well and has been abandon by would-be competitors

You might put up an Adwords campaign for this keyword phrase, promoting an affiliate link, and see how well it converts. This is a good test to perform before investing a lot of time in developing a website around a particular niche/phrase.

Yep it gets a decent amount of searches. Nothing huge but enough for me.

Thanks so much for your input! I will take your advice and do some testing. Thanks to you, your forum and the other posters here, I think I'm actually starting to learn something that I can actually use! :D
