    I was not sure which section to put these but here goes:

    1. I am noob at keyword research so bear with me. What is the relevance of the Advertiser competition when looking at "Google Adwords" for your niche ?

    2. How do you choose when to use a sales page format with testimonials etc and when to use a simple blog like format with the most recent post being the sales pitch?




    mods: I have created a thread with same content in the blogging section not knowing the correct one to put my question in. Please excuse this one.

    Advertiser competition is just a measurement based on the number of advertisers for a certain phrase - higher competition is likely to pay more for clicks seeing as how it is more competitive, just bear it in mind for when making MFA sites as low competition will likely earn you not much.

    As for your second question about a sites format I think that the best you can do is try one for a little time and switch it to see if the other format performs better if you are not happy with a sites performance, it's all just trial and error man - just try and find out!

    1. Do you mean the little bar? That just means the amount of adwords users bidding on that keyword and probably linked with the relative cost to get on the first page. The best indication you can get is the simplist put your keywords in speach marks i.e. "farmville cheats" and google it. See how many results come back at you. Check the first page to see what competition there is. If you have millions of results and the top five websites are all aged domains with tens of thousands of backlinks it is going to take a fair bit of work and time to rank for that term. If there's little competition and no really good targeted sites in the top ten you may do well.

    2. Use a sales page when you are trying to sell something to the customer. Use a blog when you are trying to rank a site in the organic search. Nine times out of ten a blog will do well. An ideal situation is to have 10, 20 or even a hundred blogs all gathering traffic and funneling it into a single sales page. The sales pages are just designed to convert well not to gain any traffic from organic serps.

    1. Then how does adword bid price go hand in hand with the adsense payout?

    2. @cool5now, that is something I am confused about. Different people, different ways:

    a. You say to use "keyword"
    b. SENuke uses Allintitle
    c. Market Samurai uses a host of different parameter - DMOZ, Title, url etc

    How then to go about?

    3. I had an online gambling niche in mind which I was going to associate with a product. So, a blog will be a good idea ?
