    Hey everyone,

    I don't post often, I'm not going to bore you with some sob story or asking for to be spoonfed.

    I've been researching in to IM on and off for several years now. I have made a few dollars here and there offering services or directing traffic to my offers through social media. Just to give you a bit of background I am a programmer, everything from c++ to php.

    Thing is I am thinking of setting up some sort of blogging platform to run a farm of blogs. Anyways, without dragging my feet any more:

    How long do you guys spend on keyword research? I have been having a hell of a time finding keywords with no competition, that stuff on google's keyword tool is misleading as hell.

    When you are selling clickbank products specifically e-books and such why not have the rewrote so you can get all of the profits? Or is clickbank just suggested so people who don't have any background technically can get started.

    And so that I am not just asking for info and not giving back. If anyone has any issues with scripts or such on their website just shoot me a PM and I will do my best to help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

    Also, I hope this is the right forum to post this in.

    Thanks

    a) No such thing as a no competition keyword, everything has competition of some sort. Just pick some keyphrases and go for it, best to start learning and getting feedback cycles asap. There is a limited amount of keyword real estate out there, you just have to roll up your sleeves and compete.

    b) People do that but it's another layer of work and complexity. Also building sales pages is an art in itself and it takes a lot of knowledge, tweaking and enough traffic for testing to get it right. Some people prefer to just drive traffic... Vertical integration has its problems if you're a one person band.

    Yeah, I didn't mean no competition really. But every where I look I find fairly good competition. Either that or the keywords are just not good, low traffic. I did notice one I was researching's top result was a wiki. I seriously though about editing it since the keyword phrase only appeared once or twice.
