    This is not bad for an SEO ' big picture guide' , I think it is a bit outdated , some tools and some tips are no longer used, like I am not sure 100% but I am pretty sure at least 99% since I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to disallow on my robots.txt and as I understood you don't have to disallow anything from WordPress, (it could just harm your rankings to disallow wordpress stuff, I usually code the whole thing but i have used sometimes wordpress and it's better practice not to disallow) the only thing I disallow usually is the OUT folder where I put all my cloaked links for affiliate products ! Also for analytics, I use STATCOUNTER it is a lot more practical that google analytics and the two combined if set the right way are giving better and more simple to results! Also, google kw planner doesn't always work the way we should expect there are many freemium tools that do a better and more accurate job!

    I've finished up with some of the moderation duties I had to perform, so I'll take some time to address the questions in this thread, starting with the most recent.
    This thread was outdated about a month after I posted it when Google updated their keyword planner tool to show data ranges (among other updates in the SEO world), so you're not wrong. I actually don't even use some of those tools myself anymore and I'll address the issue with some of the tips below.
    That disallow section was related to a soft 404 search error spam attack that was going around at the beginning of 2017. It's always been a bit of a black sheep in the main thread, so I removed it not too long ago. Anyway, I went over the issue in more detail in a separate thread, which I've quoted below. Hopefully that'll provide you with some insight into the issue.
    I'm not sure what you mean, can you rephrase that question?
    I can't really help you with the niche ideas issue, but search terms are easier to find if you know your niche. If you're just getting started in a niche, using something like the Keyword Shitter might help give you some ideas. There used to be a Keyword Shitter Pro, but I have no idea what happened to it.
    I'm glad all of you liked it!

    LSI Keywords- This will have more of an effect than you can predict, got the last client's pages ranked very highly just by making sure you include as many related terms as possible, I was working in the videogame niche and our competitors were focusing too much on single keywords. By doing good KW research and nice internal linking we doubled our traffic in a couple of months. Do this for most product pages (especially category pages) and you will see good results.
