How to Find the Right Keywords

Where do you find the right keywords for the best hidden niche markets? Market Samurai is a piece of software that can help you find long tail titles, keywords and valuable hidden niches with less competition, higher rankings, and more potential AdSense clicks to make money online.

Google Page Ranking - Can your Web Pages be Found?

Are your hubs actually being read by anyone other than your family and friends? The market you should be targeting is not your family and friends, they already know what a genius you are, besides, they should definitely NOT be encouraged to click on the ads on your Hubs or else your AdSense account might be banned. No, the market to target are the clickers and buyers who visit you Hubs. Those readers actually Google your keywords to find your content. Market Samurai is a program that helps you find the right keywords, keyword phrases and titles most likely to be found by Search engines.

Who is Your Market / Audience?

By targeting a specific market of people who are interested in your subject, you are more likely to grow keen, returning visitors to your website or HubPages sub-domain. Your readers are the people typing in your keywords in the Google search engine. Try to imagine what potential readers would type into the search bar to find your work. Which phrase would they use to find what they are looking for? Those are people who need your content and like it so much, they’ll come back for more.


Creating a web presence is easier with consistency. Adopt and nurture a brand name, so people can recognize and remember you. Using a pseudonym or not using a pseudonym is an often debated question. Nicknames are perhaps useful for posting rude comments on forums but if you want to build a strong, reliable presence on the net you need to be a real person with a real name to be recognized, respected and remembered by.

Dumb Beginner's Story

Because I was not sure whether to own up to joining an add-based revenue site, I made the mistake of joining Hub Pages under the pseudo name of Sue Adams instead of my real name Juliette Kando. Well , it backfired on me when I tried to publish a similar article on Ezine which I had joined as Juliette Kando. The Ezine moderators rejected my article on the grounds that I had stolen it from somebody called Sue Adams! After a lot of emailing and wasted time explaining that Juliette Kando was Sue Adams, they published the article.

The Moral Is ...

Using multiple ID’s distracts from creating a true Web Presence, but that’s my experience. It could be that for more commercial Hubbers who write catalogues of products, having many ID’s is a good thing. I just don’t know.


How Do You Divide Your Hubbing Time?

How Do I Find a Market?

Before writing any more Hubs check in your statistics or via Google Analytics where in the world your pages are being read. Which of the Hubs you have written so far get the most page views? Which Hubs make the most money? Try to figure out why that is the case. Those winning Hubs probably have better SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) in the form of:

  1. Have interesting, catching, original "long tail" titles (phrases a punter might type into Google Search).
  2. Well written popular, yet innovative content with relevant, well researched keywords.
  3. Networking (sharing with facebook, twitter etc.)
  4. Reputable high ranking sites have a link of your Hub on their site (backlinks). You can participate in outside forums and leave links to your Hubs where possible (don’t leave links on HubPages forum).
  5. Time - let a Hub mature, keep promoting but wait up to three months before judging its steady performance.
  6. Maintenance – tweaking and updating hubs, adding new text, videos or pictures in response to comments.
  7. Communication - Respond to every comment, ask questions, give answers. Announce changes to a page in a comment, then share the page with your followers.

Too Much Work?

Without being actively engaged in most of the above, your talent, knowledge, and brilliant writing skills are not going to be found by the Google search engine no matter how good a writer you are. Now doing all that seems like a LOT of work you think, but do not despair. Market Samurai is a piece of reliable software that can help you a great deal. Here is a brief introduction to the program. I am actively using this software myself so I am not promoting it just because I am an affiliate. I am recommending it because since I started using Market Samurai my Hubs have performed much better and my earnings have increased manifold.

Market Samurai for Title and Keywords

For example, when I was drafting this hub, which I intended to call: How To Create A Web Presence, I ran my title “How To Create A Web Presence” through Market Samurai to check it for SEO competition and AdSense value against the ten highest ranking sites containing the keywords in my Title.

The image below shows the result.


This looked OK to me, not too much competition, until I saw that there was already a Hub written under the same title. Oh well, try again. What about a nice long-tail title? So I typed in: “How To Create A Web Presence To Make Money Online” and the result is here:


Then I asked Market Samurai to generated and analyse (value) keywords for my title “How To Create A Web Presence – Market Samurai To Make Money Online”. I have used those keywords scattered throughout this article. You can see that Market Samurai does a more thorough job than the ordinary Google Adwords tool. Now for any business one needs to make some investment. Some Hubbers, like I, until a few months ago, deny spending a penny on SEO and end up a year later still with no earnings to speak of. I wish I had started the right way, it would have saved me a lot of time and effort.


Domain Names and Titles For Niche URLs

In addition to Title and Keyword Research, Market Samurai also lets you find relevant domain names of hidden niche URLs . It can help you find content too! Although I have not tried that feature, I prefer to write my own content.

Avatars / Profile Pictures

Many Hubbers frequently change their avatar picture and even get friendly comments from followers like “ I like your new avatar”. Why they keep changing their avatar pictures I don’t know. Maybe they like to show different faces, different moods of themselves? For me, I believe that If you want to establish a web presence and make it easier for the public to recognize and remember you, then your avatar, your prime means of identification, should consistently be the same on all sites you join (like FaceBook, Twitter, Google+ etc), on your Hub Pages profile and on any other blogs / sites you may have.

To Conclude

I hope you enjoyed "How to Use Market Samurai for Title and Keywords". I have written a few more Web Help articles you may like. In the meantime, just remember to follow this basic 4 step formula:

  1. Research titles and keywords with Market Samurai.
  2. Write, lay-out design, publish
  3. Promote, share (facebook, twitter etc.)
  4. Get backlinks

Rate this Hub if you like it and let us know how you are getting on developing your Web Presence in the comments section below.

See you back soon,

Hi Peachpurple,

Market Samurai actually gets its keywords information from Google but analyses it and presents it much more usefully and to greater detail. In other words, it does all the hard work for you.

Hope this helps,

hi again...Yur really good at this stuff, I assyme is your $$ making means...I thought that text linking within an HP article was taboo??

Hi Dave,

Yes, I do find the "search for competition" feature on M.S. useful. As to analysis paralysis, you only have to do the keyword and competition research for every Hub once. You can also use the Google Adwords keyword tool but M.S. is much quicker and easier. B.t.w. I made my money back as an affiliate. Not here on HP (not allowed) but on my own website.

Juliette ...I am a newbie to online writing and marketing. But, I do know enough to recognise a true 'pro' amongst a sea of ametuer wannabes.

I use the unpaid version of M.S. I'm actually afraid to use buy/use the Noble Samurai for fear of analysis paralysis.

Do you find the competition functions of M.S. to be accurate and truly useful ...Like can't do without em?? my name is Dave...thanks

Yes, well as usual you've got to know the rules to be able to bend them. It's the same with another very useful programme that helps promote YouTube videos, Tube ToolBox. You can only plug 200 times in 24 hours without being penalised by YouTube. You can find it here:

Don't fully understand the technicalities but it's to do with too many requests from the same IP address I believe

I don't see how Google can know who uses Market Samurai. I was brought up in France with the terror of Catholicism where children were made to believe that God was watching their every move. Has Google become God?

That is the first time that somebody writes a very important info on hub titles. That should be the first thing designing a hub - appropriate title.

Great read.
