Alphabet Soup – The Most Comprehensive Keyword Research Technique

Written by Kyle. Posted in Google keywords, Keyword Lists, Keyword Research

When I am doing keyword research, I don’t like the idea of potentially missing keywords.

Jaaxy is wonderful for finding keywords, but when doing research you want to be as thorough as you can, truly seeking out every last corner of your niche.  In other words, finding every keyword gem that is out there (and there are lots of them left).

Because of this, I would like to share a keyword research technique with you that I have been using for about a year and a half…ever since the rollout of Google Instant.  It is very easy to do, and very easy to conquer an entire niche of keywords.

There are 2 tools that you need for this research technique:

(1) A keyword tool (ideally Jaaxy)
(2) Google Instant

That is it.  Most of us have a keyword tool, and if you are reading this, you could very well have access to Jaaxy.

Finding the initial core search term.

If your niche is promoting keyword research tools, you might want to start with the core term “keyword”.

My Initial Keyword Search
As you can see, when I type in a search term, Google Instant starts giving me suggestions.  It typically shows the “most popular” searches first, in this case the term “keyword tool” was the most popular extension of the term keyword.

I then dump this keyword in Jaaxy…

Jaaxy Search - Keyword Tool

I get thirty very targeted results.  You can see the little icons beside some of these search terms and this is because I have saved them to a keyword list.  This is the initial process.  Choose a root keyword that is relevant to your niche so you have a starting point.

I want to look at another example here just for clarification purposes.   I have an android phone (the Samsung Nexus, not too bad!), so I am going to do the exact same thing here.  Start with a Google Instant search…

Android phone google instant search

OK, it looks like “android phone reviews” is the most popular.  My next step is dumping this search term into Jaaxy.

Jaaxy Search - android phone review
I have a bunch of keywords.  But this is just the start of this technique! :)

Walking through the alphabet

The next thing we are going to do is go through the entire alphabet with our root search term.  In the case of the example above, these root terms are “keyword” and “android phone”.    We are going to start by typing the letter “a” next to the search term.  Remember, Google Instant will give you the most popular searched terms first.

Let’s look at what “keyword a” gives us in Google Instant:

What I want to do now is walk through some of the terms related to “a”.  I usually choose ones that I am interested in, in this case I chose “keyword analysis”.  I then plugged this into Jaaxy.  Here is what I get…

Some more excellent keywords (I have indicated some really low competition ones with red arrows).  I have only search ONE term under the FIRST letter as well.  If you walk through the entire alphabet in this same fashion, you are going to get a ton more results.  Go through the “b” terms, then the “c” terms, etc.

**Note that everything within Google instant is not going to be in keyword tools.  Google Instant is sometimes much more current as keyword data can be a month delayed.  Google instant also does produce search terms that don’t get searched, so sometimes this will be the case.  The key is leveraging every keyword possiblity here.

Storing your research into a list (search terms)

As you can see, there is a green icon next to many of the search terms.  This is because I am storing a lot of the ones that I want to use to a keyword list in Jaaxy. I recommend that you do this during all of your keyword research.  It allows you to revisit awesome keywords at any time you like in the future!

Just a little tip! :)

The “Before” Keyword Variation

There is another way to utilize Google Instant to get at keywords, this time instead of using the alphabet after the search term, we are going to use it before the search term. Note that this time you DO NOT want to put a space between the letter and the keyword.

In the example of “android phone” targeting the letter “b”, you would type in a “b” before “android phone” (make sure that it is already in the search).

Here is what I mean:

b android phone search - Google Instant

I then take the first term “best android phone” and plug that into Jaaxy.  Who would have figured, several more low competition keywords!

Jaaxy Search - best android phone

As you can see, I have added more keywords to my list.  In just a few searches and two letters in the alphabet, I have a ton of awesome terms. Imagine the potential if I walked through the entire alphabet? This is just the start of the keyword opportunities!

You move onto the next “root” keyword after you have completed one.  To be completely honest with you, YOU SHOULD NEVER run out of keyword ideas if you do this.  I know I could find keywords for a lifetime using this technique alone.

To never being stuck with keywords again,

This is What 10 Minutes of Research Looks Like.

Written by Kyle. Posted in Competition Research, Domains, Keyword Research

People spend hours, days and even months researching for their campaigns.  They get stuck coming up with niches.  They have no ideas how to break down a niche.  They don’t know how to find a good domain name.  They are not sure where to generate ideas.this is what 10 minutes of research looks like

Because of this, I wanted to do a time based exercise.  Starting right now, I am going to spend 10 minutes using Jaaxy to see how much research I can accomplish.  I will document exactly what I do.  I am going to break these down into 5 lists (below) and then I will spend some time explaining exactly how I performed this research after.

Here is what I came up with in 10 minutes…

That is 30 new niches, 27 keywords, and 12 domains in 10 minutes of research.  That is value based research, that is efficiency, and this was a reflect not of the techniques or strategies I was using, but having access to the right data and the right tool.  I am going to explain exactly how I cam up with this keywords, niches and domains however, breaking down each of the sections for clarity.

Research should not have to take you hours per day.  Here I have done enough research for a week in 10 minutes, probably more research than most can accomplish in an entire week.  Here is how it is done…

How I Uncovered Niches

To find niches, I always use the “relevant keywords” to the side of every search within Jaaxy.  I was actually watching TV when I started doing this exercise, and there was a speech on “jobs”.   I typed this term into Jaaxy, starting broad and then working more targeted.  I instantly got a bunch of ideas, but that just proves how simple the starting point of your research can be.  Start with a single word, something that is in front of you, or if you have a niche in mind, start with that.  Either way, to start research, you have to come up with a starting point…so do not overthink this aspect of it.

Here is what the “relevant results” look to the side of my jobs keyword search:

Relevant items next to job search

You will notice that I pulled some of these exact “niches” into my list.  Every search in Jaaxy provides you with relevant ideas (I like to refer to them as potential niche ideas).   Let’s look at another search that I did in Jaaxy targeting “online community”

Relevant Keywords - Learning Commnity

I was able to pull a couple more niches from these “relevant results”.  This is something that you should regularly do, keep an eye on relevant niches when doing research for something completely independent.  You can never have too many niches in your back pocket! :)

How I Uncovered Low Competition Keywords

Take your initial keyword idea and plug it in.  I typically look at the traffic results, if the number is very high, then you can almost assume that the competition is high.  This is likely because the keyword is too broad.  If the traffic is 1,000 and under, there is usually limited competition and I click the “Get QSR” button to find out the exact competition.  If the keyword is longer tailed, ie, more than 3 words in length, it will typically be a lower competition term.

I suggest that you always aim for under a 400 QSR (Quote Search Results) rank.  These are SEO friendly search terms.

Here are the results that came up with my initial “jobs” search.  Of these, a few of them had a QSR under the 400 threshold that I trick to stick under.

uncovering niches through the relevant results

That is all I do really, I look at the keywords, I click the QSR under one or many of them, and if the QSR is under 400 and relevant to the niche I am promoting, it is a keeper in my book.  I know that I can easily rank a keyword with a QSR of less than 400 through article marketing or website content.

How I Uncovered Domain Names

Competition.  If the QSR is lower than 400, there is a good chance that the domain is going to be available in the .com or .org TLD (the best choices).  These are the domains with value and the ones that you can easily get ranked in Google under the keywords within the domains, can be flipped, or put a website on and sold for an even greater profit.

Here is an example domain search that I performed…

Domain Search - Finding high quality domains

Both the .com and .org are available.  If you bought this domain, put a site on it, you would likely be able to get ranked #1 in Google very easily under the term “senior citizen job opportunities” and reap the benefits of the traffic (this is an entire business model for many marketers). Domain flipping is a big business.   People earn a lot of money from domains.   People leverage keyword rich domain traffic to drive a lot of business.

I am not sure if you are aware of this as well, but I wrote an entire “blueprint” on the domain business and it is offered as a bonus when you join Jaaxy!   We currently have a portfolio of 500+ domains that are worth far more than we paid for them.  A domain is a low $8 investment compared to the upside potential.  Like land, they are not making any more .com or .org domain names.

How I Uncovered Brand New Ideas I Would Have NEVER Thought Of

It’s been a long day, you are flustered and you do not feel like coming up with ideas out of “thin air”.  Fortunately you don’t have to as there are many very easy ways to do this.  With a few minutes to go in this exercise, I decided to dip me feet into the Brainstorm tab within Jaaxy to see what I could quickly come up with.

You may have noticed that I came up with a pretty big list of niches “I would have never thought of”…and I did so very quickly.  This is primarily because the Brainstorm feature within Jaaxy gives me fresh, trending, and new ideas (several times daily!).   It just so happens that I pulled these ideas from this tab (as shown below).

brainstorming new niches

It really took very little thought and it took me more time to record the actual niches than it did to write them down.  I was 9 minutes into my research when I decided to hit this tab, so I had less than one minute to scramble for niches here to complete the exercise.  How did I do? :)

———————–

I hope that I have put things into perspective for you.   I spent very little time (10 minutes to be exact) and accomplished a lot in this exercise.  I hope you found this revealing and that the next time you go to perform research, you consider taking out a clock and seeing what you can accomplish.  I would love to hear your feedback.
