Greetings from my parents' basement! So I pretty much got the basics down of keyword research, and putting it all to use, but I have yet to find a way to effectively come up with keyword (I'd say niche but the over-used word pisses me off now) ideas. As an example; I know that "buy red car that smells like lady gagas armpit" is way easier to rank for than "buy red car" at the cost of profitability, and as long as it has a market value and not too much competition that's a-okay. Now there are of course loads of programs that can do most of the work for you, but in order to put them to work, you first need to come up with "buy red car", or maybe even just "red car". Now sure, I could go sit in that dark corner over there pondering what could possibly be a market area that still has some long-tail keyword available worth ranking for, but I doubt that's a very effective method. So what's a method to find market areas worth looking into? Stuff like amazon and ebay (which are tips I found through g00wgle) are kind of worthless since they all got stuff like "laptops" and "used cars" and whatnot, all markets that are no-go for beginners with limited funds.
