Google keyword research tool
Recently I bought five or so domains that I plan to build niche blogs. I picked a few that I personally have an interest in, however after doing some extensive keyword researching using the Google keyword tool also known as GKT I discovered some of my targeted niches are way too difficult to land on the first page of Google. Some had 150,000 back links. So, I just didn’t even bother thinking of trying to rank with this tough of competition. On the other hand I have a couple of domains that I should be able to rank for because the search volume is low and I’m guessing webmasters don’t even want to bother with such low searches. I learned today that I need to do my keyword research BEFORE I buy domains. I couple of my new domains I will probably just resell. I’m in the testing phase of building niche blogs so I guess it’s good to learn earlier than later. I’m just glad I did not buy 100’s of domains and not do the proper research.
So, basically I’m finding out that just building the niche blogs and finding what one thinks is a good market is just a small fraction of what you need to do. You really need to check what other webmasters are doing with the keywords you are after before you even begin to try and rank for certain words.
I do have find thinking of markets that might get searches on Google, but just thinking of all the work in making the blog popular is a daunting thought. I believe I will outsource this boring work. So far just discovering topics that interest me and a web audience is exciting to me. I will just pay to have the boring task done. That is if I can afford to do this.
