SE Cockpit Keywords #1 & #2 For Free!

Hello Everyone!

I’m so glad you made it inside this password protected post! That means you are on my list and actually reading what I have to say and for that here is your gift!

I know I said I’m going to give away 1 keyword, but as this is my first post I want to double that and give away 2 keywords that I found in SE Cockpit using the methods I outlined on this post!

Now some disclaimers about the keywords.

#1.  Since this post will be sent out to everyone on my list, only the quickest to act will actually be able to register the domain.  I cannot and DO NOT guarantee that you will be able to snatch up the EMD domain for that reason.

#2.  Competition.  Once again, since I am sending these keywords to so many people, it’s likely that many will grab the .com, .net, and .org versions or even the .info versions and head into direct competition with you.  I cannot stop that!  So you have to be aware of it.

#3.  I in NO WAY guarantee that you will rank in Google, Yahoo, Bing or any other search engine if you decide to go after these keywords.  There are many other factors, than keyword selection, that attribute to successfully ranking a website in the top of the search engines.

#4.  Because I am giving you the keyword, I will be reporting my findings on what it is that you do with that keyword.  I will have the domain names obviously, and I will be checking in and reporting to my list what you have done.  If you aren’t ok with that, then DO NOT get the keyword and try to build a domain name.

#5.  I WILL help you (with advice, not work) to build the website, provided you purchase any necessary tools through my affiliate links located on my resource page.  I will give you my time, but I just ask that you purchase any tools needed anyways through my affiliate links so that I get something in return!  Should you choose not to purchase anything through me, I may not be as willing to help!  So no guarantees there either!

 

Ok, now that those are out of the way!  Here are your first two keywords, which happen to target both the men and women population which makes these ones extra interesting!

#1 Keyword:  bmi chart for men
Niche: Weight Loss.
Domain Availability: net & .org
Global Exact Match Searches Per Month: 4400
Google Competition: Low
Google Phrase Match Results: 119,000
Google CPC: $0.74

#2 Keyword:  bmi chart for women
Niche: Weight Loss.
Domain Availability: net & .org
Global Exact Match Searches Per Month: 9900
Google Competition: Low
Google Phrase Match Results: 137,000
Google CPC: $0.78

bmichartforwomen

As you can see, the .com version of this domain reached #7 on Google just by doing it’s On Page Optimization Correctly, and having only 5 backlinks!  Further, I have looked at the link profile from Majestic SEO and here’s what it shows;

 

bmichartforwomen-majestic

As you can see from this, the link came from one site, but from 5 different places on that site.  Digging a little deeper, I found that the PR of the only backlink is a 0.

Therefore, based on this information, I believe this keyword to be very easy to rank on Page 1, simply by doing the proper On Page SEO!  Further, since the competition analysis for BMI CHART FOR WOMEN is very much the same, I extend my belief that that keyword is just as easy to rank for!

So….there are your first two keywords, with 4 domains available!  Will you go after it now, or watch as someone else builds it?

I’ll release another keyword in the next month!
If you would prefer NOT to wait for me to give you keywords to compete with everyone else, please visit this page to see exactly how I find these keywods!

Please leave any comments below, I will answer them there so everyone can see and share in this knowledge!!

Update:  May 10, 2013

Well all four domain names have been scooped up by one single person, as he didn’t want competition, so congrats Kevin!

I have now unlocked this post, and it is open for public viewing!

So far from what I have seen, Kevin has already put up a bare minimum site for bmichartformen.net and the others have nothing yet.  Nothing indexed in Google yet either!

Kevin, if you want to share your plans, that would be great!

The Most Important Lesson I Learned In My SEO Career Thus Far.

The Most Important Lesson I Learned In My SEO Career Thus Far:
Good Keyword Research Is STEP 1!

I remember the day I bought my first SEO Guide, Google Sniper by George Brown.

I remember being so freakin excited about how I was gonna find a ‘low hanging fruit’ keyword and build a blog about it. Low competition, and decent search volume – 1000 to 3000 searches per month!

I was gonna make $500/month per website, and then I was gonna build 10 of them and make $5000/month and quit my day job and live the loco life!

Oh man, if it were that easy right?

Here’s a small sample of some of the domain names my girlfriend and I found keywords for and built blogs! Some of them still have a page up, so go ahead and peek at what we did.

RiftTalent.com – I have no idea about the game Rift.
HowToKissABoy.org – Teenagers don’t spend money on learning how to kiss.
BestChestExercisesForMen.com – First Real success, up to 60 hits per day. Then Penguin
SkyrimCheatsGamePlay.com – People looking for cheat codes don’t buy guides
AcneAndClearSkin.com – Keyword To Competitive
HowToGetRidOfBackAcneForever.com – To Competitive of a market, never ranked.
YourSocialAnxietyDisorderTest.com – Second Real Success, Got to Google #12. Then Penguin

With each new failure, a resentment and aggravation built up in me.  But I kept going on, and we’d hit a bit of success!

With our first taste of getting success in the form of traffic, about 60 hits per day, we got super excited and we wanted to rank #1, instead of #6.  So we did what we were told and joined a back-linking network called SEO Link Monster, and blasted the hell out of those sites with backlinks.

The result. We dropped out of the rankings completely.

So effectively, what we did was pay $147/month for a few months to completely wipe out any small amount of success that we had.

I quit. I seriously walked away from SEO and went back to bar-tending as my source of income.

But whatever seed Mr George Brown planted in me, he planted it deep and he planted it well because I couldn’t really get the idea of SEO out of my mind. During the next 8 months, I never actively did anything to build a blog or do keyword research.

But I did visit the Bring The Fresh forum quite a bit, and read the Success Stories section. I was gob-smacked by all the relative NOOBS that were cracking the code and getting results! I felt partly envious, and partly dumbfounded.

“I have a 10 year background in all things
Internet and Affiliate Marketing related
but I can’t rank a site for the life of me.”

But I kept reading and re-reading. Then one day, I stumbled across another fellow by the name of Alex Becker, and that’s when things completely changed for me.

I got his ebook called The 80% Law Of SEO. It’s an excellent product, but poorly named product in my opinion.

The 80% Law states that 80% of your results come from 20% of your proper efforts.  It’s a very popular economic study in which the famous 80/20 rule came from.  And it’s abundantly correct in many real life situations.

In relation to keyword research, Becker states that you’ll get 80% of your results from 20% of the keywords you choose.

So the remainder of the course materials is 6-8 methods (I can’t remember exactly) that will help you find those keywords that produce 80% of the results.  The winners!

He has a name for each keyword finding method, which is a nice way to help you remember.  Some of them are; Top Ten Method, Blood In the Water Method, Foreign Language Sniping, Big Splash method, and I believe a few others.

His tactics are quite logical, and kinda made me think DUH! Why didn’t I think of that. But the fact is they work.

They work so well in fact that within a week of going over The 80% Law Of SEO, I had found my first truly successful keyword and built a site that was ranked on Page 1 of Google in 8 days, and hit #1 about 2 weeks later. Traffic levels are currently between 250-300 unique hits per day!

Within the next 30 days, I built 5 more sites of which 3 hit Page 1 in Google. One of them even hit #4 in 48 hours, and is now currently ranked #1 getting over 100 hits per day.

1 sits at position 11, and the other I over optimized in my excitement of it all and it was thrown into the mythical Google Sandbox.

Think about that…

I failed and failed and failed. About 20 domains I built, spent money on and none of them worked and I eventually quit, but when I came back, and found the missing link magic happened.

Within 1 month of reading the right strategies,
I had 2 sites ranked #1 in Google and a whole whack more on Page 1.

Unreal right?

So what was the difference? Keywords man!!!

Getting the right keyword is the very first step you have to take when you are trying to rank a brand new domain name! If you don’t pick the right keyword right away (due to inexperience), you probably won’t know it right away and you will end up wasting more time and money trying to build something that’s just a bit out of your reach or current level of expertise.

I’m not trying to say ranking tough keywords is impossible, it is possible. But I am saying that someone who has little to no knowledge and experience in these matters should NOT be trying to rank for keywords that are even remotely difficult. It’s just to depressing and will lead to bad things.

Don’t do it!

Try to be smart and learn from the failures of others, as my mother always wished I’d do.

Picking the right keyword is like starting a 1000 mile journey, and actually heading off in the right direction from the start. What a sigh of relief!

Ok one last way of putting this…

If I were in a contest where I had 10 minutes to pick a keyword to build a blog on, and the winner was determined by who received the largest volume of traffic from the search engines, I’d spend 9 minutes finding the right keyword, and 1 minute building the blog.

And I’d probably win 😉

So if you haven’t seen traffic from your website building efforts yet, then I highly suggest that you change whatever it is that you are doing, and place all of your efforts into learning about keyword research!

The 80% Law Of SEO is a great guide to show you how to switch on your brain and find all sorts of keywords. It’s also very cheap! It’s like 15 bucks!

Once you understand the keyword research methods, get yourself a membership for SE Cockpit, which is the best keyword research software there is. You’ll take your new found knowledge and minimize your search time into flat seconds.

I can literally find 100 great keywords in a matter of 10 minutes or less now thanks to the knowledge of that guide, and the mining power of that tool!

I hope this helps!

I’m Giving Away Keywords With Exact Match Domains Available!

Awwwww yeahhh!  This is going to be great!

No one I know of is doing what I’m about to start doing!  And it’s in the spirit of giving that I want to do this.  There have been some great guys cross my SEO path that have been unbelievably transparent with the information they share with their subscribers and I want to do the same.

So I’m making an announcement.

I Am Going To Start Giving Away
Keywords That I Find In SE Cockpit

  • They Will Have High Search Volumes
  • They Will Have Low Competition
  • They Will Have Competition Analysis DONE FOR YOU
  • And BEST Of All…They Will Have The Exact Match Domains AVAILABLE!

 

So how is this going to work?  How will you be able to get one?

Well pretty easy really!  Just subscribe to my list and when the keyword become available, I’ll send you an email.  Be the first to snap up the domain name, and it’s yours!

 

Sign Up To My List:

First Name:  

Last Name:  

Email:           

I haven’t decided on the frequency of which I will send out this keyword yet, but I’m thinking either once or twice per month, I’ll mail my list with the details of the keyword.  I’ll include the following information

  • Keyword
  • Global Exact Match Searches/Month (From Google Keyword Tool)
  • Top 10 Competition Analysis From SE Cockpit
  • Top 10 Competition Analysis From Market Samurai
  • Phrase Match Competition From Google
  • Availability of .com, .net & .org

 

Once I give away this information, it’s up to you to be quick to snatch up the domains.  There are only 33 people on my list as of now, so you’ll have a good chance at grabbing one, but as the list grows it will become a bit harder.

I’ll try to announce the date and time that I’ll be giving away the keyword, so that everyone has a fair chance.

Sometimes there will be 3 domains available as the .com, .net and .org will all be there.  Other times there will only be 2 or 1 domain available.  But if you are really good at backlinking, then you can always take the keyword I give away, and add a modifier to it.

For Instance:
If the keyword I give away is “how to train dogs”, and the .com, .net and .org are already all gone, you can always search for howtotraindogshq.com or howtotraindogsinfo.com etc.

Modifiers are a little harder to rank, but still have a great chance at Top 10 if you do your On Page Optimization right and back link well enough.

There you have it!  Please feel free to make COMMENTS on this post below!

If you would rather just take it upon yourself to find keywords, you should really read this post in which I tell you exactly how I find all these great keywords!

Keyword Research That Get’s Results!

SE Cockpit Special

My Keyword Search Breakthrough

How I Now Search For Keywords

 

So as my story goes, I basically have been at SEO for over 2 years now and only recently have I found any real success. The major breakthrough came in the form of how I did my keyword research.

I’d read time and time again that keyword research is the first step, and if you mess it up, you are doomed to begin with. I always knew that I needed to find high search, low competition keywords with buyer intent, but it just was’t that easy! I’d spend hours and hours searching for good keywords, and find 1 if I was lucky.

That’s all changed now.

I can sit down for 30 minutes and find multiple keywords with over 10,000 searches per month, with domains available and competition that I know I can beat even without back links. On multiple occasions I’ve found keywords, registered an Exact Match Domain, built a blog and had a Page 1 ranking on Google all within one week. I’ve even done it 48 hours.

So what happened?  How did I go from a keyword research idiot to a savant overnight?

Well the funny thing is that I had the proper keyword research tool all along, I just didn’t know how to use it properly. Yes you can do keyword research with the free Google Adwords Keyword Tool, but it’s going to take freaking forever! I’d rather spend a few bucks to save my time.

Isn’t that one of the things money is for anyways? You spend time to get money, so it only makes sense that the reverse is also true. Spend money, and get back some time!

The single most important SEO Tool I now own is my keyword research software Search Engine Cockpit. Ya, it’s a bit expensive, but it’s 100% worth the price in my mind!

I also own Market Samurai, Micro Niche Finder, Traffic Travis and Keyword Canine, and where all of them have some sort of uniqueness, I feel that SE Cockpit has everything all the other majors do, plus a lot more.

 

How I Used To Do Keyword Research

I’d want to get into a market like weight loss, so I’d open up SE Cockpit and I’d type in ‘weight loss’ to the Keyword Phrase Box. Then I’d use the Adwords Synonyms Suggest to grab more ideas related to weight loss so that I’d pull more keyword. But I found nothing.

I’d switch niches from weight loss to acne and do the same thing and I’d find nothing.

 

How I Do Keyword Research Now

I am a huge fan of the forum community at Bring The Fresh by Mike Long and Kelly Felix, as people are so helpful in there. One post of a guy who was having great success was about his keyword research methods and he talked about ‘how people search‘.

They search for things like “how to train a dog” and “how to get rid of acne”. Or if they are shopping they will search for “iphone review” and “iphone price” or “buy iphone” and “buy ipad”.

And then after seeing that I made a strange connection with the way people search and the way that Google delivers results.

People either repeat themselves a lot, or the Google Suggest tool leads people to search in very common strings.

What if I stopped trying to find the niches, and instead just use the right common phrases and then just let Google fill in the blanks.  For instance

“how to —”

I mean people are always looking for how to do stuff and there’s literally unlimited “how to’s”.

So I opened up SE Cockpit and I typed in “how to”. Then I use the Google Suggest Synonyms to fill in the blanks.

 

WHAMMO!

 

I see those little diamonds start popping up all over the place in my search results, which mean that you have found an amazing keyword when search volume and competition are taken into place.  Those are gems.

I NEVER used to find gems and on my first search, I have like over 10 on one page!  Unreal.

Then I set a filter to only show me keywords with a domain name available.  It’s still looking really really good!  So I set another filter to only show me Rank 1-10 Competition that has a value of under 40.

(With SE Cockpit, this number is represented by an orange bar.  0 being the easiest competition and 100 being the hardest.)

And I’m absolutely gob-smacked!  I have keywords with over 20,000 searches per month, low competition and domain names available.  And not just a few of them.  Tons of them!!!

I’ll even show you a screen shot below…go ahead and register any of these domains if you wish, I only blocked out two of them 😉

bam

And that’s just from one search.

Then I applied that same thinking logic of how people search vs how Google delivers results, and I see that I can take it a step farther using the Suggest Tool.

I notice that a bunch of the keywords start with ‘how to make’.  Which is one step further than just “how to”.

So my next search is “how to make —” and I let Google fill in the rest.  I set my filters to Domains Available and Rank 1-10 Competition less than 40.

Again it’s another HOME RUN!

bam2

Tons of keywords available with low competition and domain names available.

 

And now at this point I’m really excited because I know the possibilities and this particular method of keyword research is simply ENDLESS!!

  • how to make
  • how to start
  • how to stop
  • how to gain
  • how to lose
  • how to ANYTHING!!!!

And it doesn’t just have to be with the starter “How to”.

  • Where To Get —
  • Where To Buy —
  • How To Find —

It’s UNLIMITED!!!

Want to focus in on a particular item!  Let’s say you are a big fan of Xbox!  Just type in the word Xbox, and let Google Auto-Suggest do the rest.

Well ever since I started doing keyword research this way, I haven’t looked back.  It’s been an endless stream of keywords that I can find with thousands of searches per month!

So it’s not just about having the right tool, it’s also about knowing how to use it!

If you don’t already have SE Cockpit, then I highly suggest that you buy it and use it.  It’s $97/month regular price, but below is a back door access where you can get your first month for only $37!  So I suggest you get it now, or save this page so you can get it later!
