Remember that concept: Keyword Analysis because that is going to tell you whether or not you are going to make money. And that is why we are here, now isn’t it? I thought so, so let’s get to work.
You have to figure out what you want to write about, because as you are setting up blogs you have to post content to those blogs. So wrap your head around that reality first. I write about making beer, and wine, candles, composting, cigars,and worm farming. It is a heck of a lot easier to write about something you know about than trying to learn about a subject while you are writing. Because you want to be able to whip content onto your blogs quickly, so that you can start getting traffic.
But baby steps. Once you have a handful of subjects you want to write about go to google and enter in “Keyword Analysis” in search and hit enter. Google Adwords Keyword Tool is where you want to go. Click on that and when the page loads type on of your writing interests in where it says “enter one keyword or phrase” You will then have to type in the captcha word and hit “get keyword ideas”. A list of keywords will come up. We now have to filter them to get an idea of what is worth our time and what isn’t. On the right you will see a box that has “Broad” in it. Drop the window down and set that cell to “exact”. Right above that is a cell that says choose columns to display. Drop that window down and click on “Show estimated CPC”. Drop the window down again and click “hide advertiser competition”, and “hide local search volume”. Finally click on “global monthly search volume” which will bring the most popular searches to the top.
Here is where it gets interesting. Don’t pay any attention to any keyword that has less than 10,000 visits per month. Unless their CPC is above $5 they just aren’t worth the energy unless you want to use one just to experiment. Take a look at some of the monthly clicks and put them to the test of what they could POTENTIALLY mean to you in income. To do this multiply the CPC by the monthly searches, and then finally by .005. This will tell you what this keyword could pay you if you were on top of the google seaches for that keyword. That equation looks like this: cpc x monthly search volume x .005 = $$$.
That is enough for today. Let me know when you have that completed and we will go on to setting up your blogs.
