    Ok so I think I am getting better at finding topics to write to that should get traffic smile
    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 yikes. 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 wink. I feel that I might be on to a winner here and wonder how excited I should be lol. I mean I have found other topics that I thought were winners and do diddly squat hmm 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 smile

      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.

        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!
