    Hello blackhatters :) 2 years ago i used to make good money with internet marketing until i took a brake for college. I would like to start all over again but it looks like there are different "rules" in the seo world at the moment.

    I own the popular softwares used back than like scrapebox, bookmarking demon, senukex and few similar, which i'm not sure if they are any good at the moment. Beside seo, I used to do cpa, selling backlinks on fiverr and social stuff.

    I tried the new google planner (keyword tool) along with the trail versions of traffic travis, market samurai and few more similar softwares but without luck finding a good keyword. The keywords that i had in the past are hard to start all over again (difficult keywords) and i've decided to go with micro niches for now. I already saw every thread relating to keywords finding and as i said, without luck finding a keyword with the help from those threads. I also found some new books relating to the topic, tried those methods as well, but all keywords (even with less than 1000 searches per month) are with hard competition in different fields (fully optimized sites, mostly high pr aged domains, tons of backlinks on them)

    I still own the hosting (without the domains i had), have some cash for domains, have huge knowledge for web development, onsite and offsite seo. I just need a good free advice or maybe few tricks on finding myself a new good keyword so i can start all over again, anything is welcome.

    Cheers :)

    2 years ago I was making money in casino and forex niche, today I am making money in casino and forex niche, do not see what the big difference is. Therefore to many this will just seem another dressed up version of the age old "how do you make money online" thread.

    Maybe you would be best of starting from where you left off. Personally I have only really ever succeeded just doing things myself.

    I used to have 2 big websites in the health area. Currently i do not have the resources (for articles) to build authority sites once again and spend a year :) There are big authority websites (usually amazon, walmart and similar) in most of the niches i tried to find long keywords.

    Mickyfu, I do not ask "how to make money online" and i can't just continue where i left. Those things either doesn't workout anymore or are too hard to achieve once again.

    I ask these things to upgrade my knowledge because there must be something that i'm missing here.

    Thanks

    Either you do not know how to do keyword research, or you do not know how to judge competition, or you are sticking to the big saturated niches.

    What is your niche of choice?

    Or better yet if you live in a city, go to the window, write down everything you see, then post it here.

    If you can describe what you see worth a damn, I will find you a niche from what you can see out of your window.

    Well that's stating the obvious I guess your targeting long tailed keywords and that is good. but don't expect a lot of searches, I don't think I can give you a lot of advice as for keywords but I know seo and have been very active. I think you should just stick to those keywords that are related to your targeted niche long tailed ones would be great, despite having low traffic you would want to build this by having a great amount of backlinks, as you may know you can get this through web 2.0's press releases, directory submissions and etc. hope it helps :)
