Hows that record coming along? You wll remember in-the first element of this series I covered finding a list together of a few ideas for the site or blog niche. Hopefully you have a sizeable set of general categories. The next steps include narrowing the keywords and then doing some supply and demand study. There are many keyword resources out there. My girlfriend found out about high quality backlinks by searching books in the library. I like to work with Overtures since its free and easy. Bear in mind the figures from Overture are often filled sometimes only a little sometimes a whole lot. They fudge the numbers by counting like requests fly and flies or affiliate and affiliates get counted because the same problem. Remember they make more money persuading their prospective advertisers that the search term is popular. So plug-in among the general search terms from your list. Im going to test dogs. Listed below are the results: Searches done in February 2006 Count Search Term 1104234 dog 225786 dog 183180 dog instruction fundamentals 152056 dog show 139072 dog breeders 98321 dog name 97021 dog education 91172 dog picture 88480 dog for sale 62657 dog brushing 56907 dog gift I edited a couple of like spy dog out for expediency. I love dog training [basics] and dog breeds. Seems like individuals are searching for both a lot. Since we've the need, lets look at to Google and check the supply. Enter the actual search term, placing quotes around it so Google looks for precisely what we wish. Google returns 5,59o,000 results, should you place in dog breeds. Try looking in top of the right-hand corner for this number. Heard of Sumantra Roy? Probably not. Hes a person who specializes in Search Engine Optimisation and certain keyword study. For other viewpoints, consider having a gander at: building link. He's created a formula called the Keyword Effectiveness Index or KEI to measure the potential of the keyword. I use an easier version of it. Here it is: KEI = Demand / Supply That's - Demand separated by Supply. The bigger the KEI the better. This provides a basic KEI to you that ranges from 1-10. People compare this for the Richter Scale, and therefore each successive number is dramatically better compared to the last number. In our example above, the KEI for breed of dog would be.04, which isnt that good. Dog Training Basics produces 45,600 results for Google. The KEI will be 4, which is wonderful. If you believe any thing, you will maybe hate to explore about seo link building. Hmmwait a moment. Our lesson is concluded by that. Bye. [Sound of running down the door and hall slamming]. Just a little geek humor there. Perform a few more and see what you come up with. Used to do dog title and got a of.10, that is poor. I also tried dog surprise, which got me a KEI of.07. I often pick up the highest KEI key words and put them back in the Overture software and test it again. Incidentally, Wordtracker does this all for you. Try it free of charge and see how easy it's. Just bear in mind that they use different sources for both supply and demand than my example above, but that shouldnt make an excessive amount of a difference. So now we must have a much smaller number that's good quality prospects onto it.. If people want to get further about linkbuilding services, we know of many libraries people might think about pursuing.
