Fast keyword Research With Googles Wonder Wheel

By Mark / August 21, 2009

There is nothing worse than spendin g an hour researching a niche only to find that it’s very competitive or that there is not enough good kewords to make a site worthwhile.  I’ve been using Googles wonder wheel to get a feel for a niche before I even start to research it.

If you want to do some very quick niche research you can’t beat it. If any of you tech dudes from google read this why not color code it so we can see the approximate searches per month, we’d all be eternally indebted to you!

All you need is Google chrome and you can initially research a niche in about 30 seconds. Once I have some keyword ideas and related keywords I use Micro Niche Finder or the Google Keyword tool to refine the research.

In case you aren’t aware of what the wonder wheel is I created a very short video to show you how I research a niche.

Have a nice weekend…

Using Wonder Wheel to FIND a niche is easy and efficient, yes.

But suppose you ARE a niche that wants to be found?

How do you use Wonder Wheel to bring people looking for a niche like yours to you?

Search results on “Jacqueline Lichtenberg” produce huge number of results (many of which really are me) but a wonder wheel that only connects the byline to my sometime co-author, but she’s connected to other things. I’m actually connected to more things than she is.

How come I’m not connected to other things by Wonder Wheel?

Jacqueline, I suspect that is a question for google..not that you would get an answer!
I suspect it’s to do with LSI and google not seeing the link between your and other topics
Why not try an experiment by writing a few articles with your name in the text and a few different keywords
