Ok so I think I am getting better at finding topics to write to that should get traffic
Today I had a play with the keyword tool and found a keyword with a global search last month of 165,000 and an average cpc of £2.28. In the google search box it gets 566,000 web site hits, I figure I stand a reasonable chance on a keyword with less then a million hits. I should also be able to place amazon ads as the keyword is a product they sell (lots to choose from too). A similar keyword I looked at was very similar, with high traffic and reasonable competition in organic search results. I am thinking they could make 2 hubs that can be linked to increase potential for traffic on both. I was even able to get the keyword as a hub url for both. These keywords are on a topic that I don't actually know much about . I am going to have to go out there and learn whatever I can until I know enough to write something useful. I am confident that I can learn about the topic as it is of interest and I am a pretty smart feller . I feel that I might be on to a winner here and wonder how excited I should be . I mean I have found other topics that I thought were winners and do diddly squat others that I figured were a long shot but what the heck, I wanted to write em anyway and they surprised me. I sometimes think that there is a certain amount of luck with this stuff
I think it sounds like we're in the same boat! LOL I say crank 'em out and best of luck! At worst you'll something new - you've got nothing to lose I hope they work out for you! Keep us updated.
hmm, 500,000 searches a month. Was that using the "exact" search option.
You didnt mention anything about your competition? What is ranking on the first page? Its not really about how many people are searching for a term, that just gives you a rough estimate of the type of traffic you can expect IF you rank well, the most important factor is finding the terms you can make that first page for...to do that you have to analyze your competition.
The worst that can happen is that it doesnt work, hten you just have to try again!
Oli I meant to ask you earlier in the other thread about your recommendations for reading material about getting incoming traffic but got distracted by the telephone...Have you a suggestion or two?
I have articles on my homepage, clearview writing, and I have some drafts up on my new blog, traffic to my Blog. which you might find useful, the traffic to my blog one is still under pretty heavy development though, so I have only got the basics written up at the moment!
Yeah have to point out, it doesn't matter how many searchers there are when well over 90% of searchers never go past page one in Google, and a minicule amount go past page two.
Sometimes it is better to go for a low search volume and get 90% of the visitors than go for a high search volume keyword and get 0.5% of a larger number!

Hi All, My traffic has been flat over the past week or two. Admittedly, I haven't promoted any of my hubs over that time period. That being said, I would like to get some steady and sustainable traffic. Any tips or promotional platforms that are working well for any of you?I currently have a few...

Hi All,I wrote this hub in 2011. I used Google Adwords and thought it would be a great evergreen hub. WRONG! I have revised the hub and changed my title several times. Please tell me what you think. I have a thick skin. "You Need a Plan for Retirement" ...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

Hi Hubbers, I'm new here, and I must say that it's a pretty great community so I thought I'd put my question out there...That is to ask, how long do you have to await a decent amount of traffic upon your hub?This is presuming that a hub is of good quality and has been based upon a keyword...

I joined hubpages one month ago and started writing hubs on weekends because I am very busy on working days. I have published 12-13 hubs right now and they are featured (12 of them while the 13th is still under review). Though my score on each hub is above 50 but I am seeing no traffic coming on my...
