    First I would like to apologize for my bad English

    I would like to make it clear that this is not intended to be a complete guide but just to show you basic steps


    How To Find Micro Niche With EMD
    Basic Steps


    [​IMG]

    You need 2 tabs opened in your browser
    [1] Google Adwords: Keyword Tool
    [2] Bulk Domain Search Tool (I Use http://www.domaintools.com/buy/availability-check/bulk/ )

    Keyword Tool Page:
    [3] Here is where you put your keywords
    [4] Choosing the country ( by default I pick US - Helps in Exact Local Search)
    [5] Choosing Language (by default I pick English)
    [6] You can change it if you are targeting mobile devices, otherwise leave it as it is
    [7] Filters (the most important part and we will get in to it later)
    [8] Always pick Exact Match

    [​IMG]
    The above image is to show you that you can apply many filters to your search.
    What I do in the above example is applying 4 filters:
    [1] Global Monthly Searches >= 4000
    [2] Global Monthly Searches <= 15000
    [3] Competition Medium and High (This is Adwords competition not SEO competition, which shows how many advertisers are targeting the keyword, the more competition the higher the CPC)
    [4] Approximate CPC (Set it to $1 to make sure the keyword is worth the time)

    [​IMG]

    Make the search to see what keywords Google suggest

    [​IMG]
    Copy all the keywords and input them to a word file then hit Ctrl+f and click replace
    We will do 3 replaces to remove the brackets and spaces from the keywords.
    In the "find what" box type "[" without quotes , leave the "replace with" empty and hit replace all
    repeat the last step with "]" and another time by putting space in the first box
    This way you will get the keywords without brackets or spaces to input it in the bulk domain search
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If you find an available EMD you then check the SEO Competition, search Google and analyze the top 10 results (I'll make another post for SEO Analysis)

    I hope this was helpful and gives you some basic ideas

    Edit:
    Contribution by members, you can skip the annoying "Remove brackets and spaces part" by using these bulk checkers
    Code:
    http://www.godaddy.com/domains/searchbulk.aspx
    http://www.namecheap.com/domains/domain-name-search/bulk-domain-search.aspx

    Great method! You can use namecheap domain bulk checker because you don't have to take out the brackets from the keywords, namecheap does it for u.

    Just one thing, in the Bulk Checker I advice to uncheck all "Show domains that are registered with these TLDs" and check .COM, .NET and .ORG in "But aren't registered with at least one of these TLDs".

    midnight_focus, your walkthrough for this method speaks for itself. You don't have to apologize for 'bad english'.

    One of the most easiest walkthroughs I've ever come across.

    Rep added. Great info =) Even if I'm a heavy BHW reader.

    You're now 1 closer to the 100 ;-)

    Great share buddy!

    For the beginners out there, I'd probably lower the search volume in the Google Keyword Tool. Based on my experience, finding EMDs for keywords with search volume between 4000 and 15000 exact searches is not easy. Plus, I wouldn't really consider the higher end of that micro niche.

    I'd set the parameters to search between 1200 and 4000 searches. You'll have a lot more luck finding EMDs.

    Personally I set between 2000-10.000.
    Over 10.000 is too hard, rare exact match domains...

    No need to remove the brackets.. Just click on the view as text button.. It's at the top of the searches.. copy the keywords and paste them here
    Code:
    http://www.godaddy.com/domains/searchbulk.aspx
    Godaddy will prompt you if you want to remove the brackets click on ok and it will search for the emd's you stated
