Niche SEO Advice

As a field get saturated one of the easiest ways to stand out is to take generalized tips from one field and apply them to another niche. Recently Rebecca mentioned this Recruitment SEO guide, and a friend of mine named Dave spotted this real estate marketing guide.

Some resources are niche specific while others are applicable to many industries. Ping Pong Pie (nice domain name) compiled a list of top social networking sites by category. The Zip Code Guy blog offers a 27 MB database of US cities, counties, and states which works great for local keyword generation for AdWords when used in combination with tools like Speed PPC.

Hi, Aaron!

(You may delete this comment after (or even before :) ) reading, because it's not a comment but more of a personal letter to you).

I'm a Russian blogger and your permanent reader. Perhaps, you know about recent changes in the Google Trends rules, which made possible to compare search traffic for different keywords in Google and find out the search volume for any specific keyphrase, if you have a benchmark phrase to compare with.

My friend and me decided to create a tool which will help webmasters to explore the Google search statistics and we made it absolutely free.

Here are its features:

* It shows daily search traffic for a site which posesses the very first line on the Google results page for a chosen keyword (for exact and general match).
* It shows the number of competing pages (for exact and general match).
* You can choose any keyword to compare with (male yeast infection and 500 searches a day are set by default, Ed Dale used this data during his Thirty Day Challenge 2007 and according to the Google Trends graph the data hadn’t changed greatly since then).
* You can set different timeframes for analysis.
* You can explore traffic statistics not only for keywords in English but in other languages as well.
* You can view and sort your keywords in your browser.
* You can export data for futher analysis (in .csv format).
* You can feed about 1000 keywords to the script at a time.
* The script can work on a remote server or a local server. It’s up to you to choose.
* User-friendly interface.

You can download it and read how to use it at my blog.

(the blog is Russian, but this post is in English, so don't worry ).

I hope you would like it :)

Hi Bogdan
Cool idea, but keep in mind that Google Trends is broad matched, so a search for credit cards will add volume for the keyword credit. Until Google lets us look at specific match types in trends I think the Google Traffic Estimator probably has more value.

Great info. I believe On page SEO will be the same for all niches.
