First of all, I don't consider myself better than a noob in keyword research. I have been trying to learn to find keywords suited for micro niche sites for a few days. Since I can't (yet, I'll be able to soon I believe) offer much to BHW and it's new year, I decided to put together a list of keywords for you guys. I hope the masters of keyword research will have an understanding attitude toward my effort. Having said that, I welcome all advices or suggestions. Elaborations of the terms used: GMS: Global Monthly Searches LMS: Local Monthly Searches CPC: Cost-per-click EMD: Exact match domain (availble at the time of this research) GIT: Google Insights for Search Trend I have considered only three TLDs, .com, .net and .org. All the CPC listed are in Australian dollar. At the time of this research, 1 AUD = 1.02075 USD. So, it's more or less the same. I have tried to touch different niches. Since poeple have different ideas about checking the competition, I have left that for you guys. As far as I'm concerned, the competition is low to medium for these keywords. So, this is my new year's gift to you. Sorry for the guys who won't be able to get the EMDs. loggerhead sea turtle GMS: 2900 LMS: 2400 CPC: A$1.13 EMD: .ORG GIT: Steady since 2008 meditation for beginners GMS: 6600 LMS: 1600 CPC: A$1.33 EMD: .ORG GIT: Spike in 2010, lower but steady since then mens dress boots GMS: 3600 LMS: 2900 CPC: A$1.31 EMD: .ORG GIT: Steady since 2004, Spikes toward December breasts sizes GMS: 5400 LMS: 2900 CPC: A$1.27 EMD(s): .NET .ORG GIT: Somewhat steady since 2009 custom notepads GMS: 1900 LMS: 1600 CPC: A$4.01 EMD: .ORG GIT: Steady since 2006 create t shirt GMS: 2400 LMS: 1600 CPC: A$1.96 EMD: .NET GIT: Rising since 2007 vitamin b deficiency GMS: 8100 LMS: 3600 CPC: A$1.51 EMD: .ORG GIT: Steady since 2007 and rising slightly Happy New Year!
