Marks Monday Tip #3

By Mark / July 28, 2008

I have several sites that rank in the top 5 in google for keywords that have lots of competition without me actually targetting that specific keyword. How do I do that? Actually it’s very easy all you need to do is to find domain names that consists of those keywords.

Here is an example of a domain name I found today the whole process took about 3 minutes.

First pick your niche for this I am going to pretend that I am selling a course on “How To Play Piano”

Go to the Google External Keyword Tool (just search for that term) and enter the keyword we are looking for which in this case is “How to Play piano” at this pooint search without synonyms this will give you a list of arouns 80 keyword phrases , add them all to the selected keywords box on the right then download them as a text file , you’ll find the link to do this at the end of the selected keywords box.

Next copy everything in the text file and use a bulk domain checking tool like the one at godaddy or the one at moniker.com this will return you a list of available domains. In the returned list I found lots of good domain names one in particular stood out “Howtolearnthepiano.com” this has about 480 searches per month and “how To Learn The Piano” has only 18 competing sites.

If I can rank one of these types of domain name at #3 in google when there are 11,000 competing sites then you can get #1 with that phrase. I haven’t registered the Piano domain, so good luck getting it! There are hundreds of thousands of domains like this available and i guarantee they will outperform the Piano-courses101.com style of domain name.

Finally today I want to mention 2 new products that 2 members of The Income Academy have created.

You’ll not have seen anything like this before and both products are incredibly useful if you want to keep on top of your blog building or promotion. They are both in prelaunch so are the cheapest they will ever be…check them out.

Thanks for mentioning the WordPress products, looks like we will hit our initial target a few days early!

The prelaunch pages will be up till Monday 11th August at lunch time (12pm MST) so best to get them now before the price goes up more than double.

Thanks again for all the support

Paul
