I will say this.... do the research. One day I was researching and found the word searched more than any other world and that is world wide. I use it all the time now and it helps.... still not telling!
If anyone revealed a truly great keyword, it would cease to be one within 24 hours. That's why people keep them a secret when they find them. For the most part, the "super keywords" are a thing of the past and values have sort of leveled out as competition became fierce.
I wonder how much money the first person to realize "mesothelioma" was a blockbuster keyword made. That's one of those very small niches that happens to have a lot of money in it (thanks to multi-million dollar class action lawsuits). Law firms at one time were paying over $100 per click for these terms, because a new client could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra revenue for them. Then in a matter of months there were a million different websites about mesothelioma, and it became nearly impossible to get anywhere near the top of the SERPs. As the leads became poorer, the law firms offered less money per click, until "mesothelioma" became a downright terrible keyword to target because of high competition and dwindling value per click. Mesothelioma is still a small niche in the real-world, but it's got a huge presence online as everyone got greedy and starting going after the big advertising bucks.
I have to say I was lucky to hit on it. I was typing an article about measles and was a bit, how do you say it, stoned at the time - and I did one of the worst typos ever. Didn't notice of course because the giant bong was obscuring my view of the page, and I published it.
Made an absolute fortune. I only type on here now as a rest from spending money.

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...
