Google Insights – Use it to Find Niche Markets
Okay! I’m super excited about this post. This post will show you how to find a niche market using Google Insights. Niche marketing can be difficult, especially if you don’t have a niche market to start with. This free tool will allow you to get the behind the scenes look at Google’s keyword search history. This is every affiliate and Internet marketers dream. Well, let’s dive in!
Using Google Insights:
The first thing to do is to visit http://www.google.com/insights/search/ and sign in to your google account at the top right.
The home page will look something like this:
Google also provides data for categories, seasonal, and geographic keyword data. Make sure you take the time to look over each section.
Finding a niche market:
To find a niche market all you have to do is type a keyword you want to research. Google insights will then dig through it’s data providing you with a goldmine of top searched keywords and keyword phrases.
So for this example I will research rifle scopes. I’ll type rifle scopes in the search bar, choose U.S.A., and gather the data all the way back from 2007 for the top keywords and phrases.
Google will then generate a graph like this:
Don’t mind the data on the graph it’s self. You just want to pay attention to the relative volume to see if the term is rising. You can even compare this term with a second one. Just hit the plus sign to add a phrase and google will generate a chart to compare the data.
Now I’m able to compare two different keyword terms to see which is better. For this example I’ll use the term spotting scopes.
This is the data google provided. You can compare the relative volume of both.
Google Insights also provides related terms on the rise in google. This enables you to dig deeper to reveal potential niche markets and sub-niche markets. After I scroll down I clicked on the “leupold rifle scopes” term to dig a little deeper.
Then google provided me with the common search terms and keyword terms on the rise.
Now I know the search volume and keywords on the rise to profit from. Google Insights will help you dig through all the junk and help you find those true niche markets, making all you niche marketing efforts worth wild.
