It is undoubtedly the hardest part of internet marketing that you will EVER have to deal with. You have to take hours, if not days searching to find the perfect keyword before you can even begin to try to make money from it. This is a huge problem for all online marketers at one time or another, because they just can’t seem to find a great keyword that is worth their time.
While this is a basic tip, it is one that I must say:
IT’S ALL ABOUT THOSE LONG TAIL KEYWORDS!
If you pick a short keyword because it gets a million searches a day, then you WILL waste all of your time and get ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE! I can’t stress that enough, unless you’re Google itself, you cannot just pick a high traffic keyword and jump to the first page without years of diligent work. It is not worth it.
Good keyword research, and then the resulting SEO is all about optimizing for the long keywords and making the most from that traffic. Even I have done this with the long tail keyword “get paid over the internet.” It is a highly searched keyword, but it does not have all the competition that “online marketing” or “work from home” would have.
The true key to making money online, in any timeframe that would even resemble quick, is optimizing your site for the long and specific keywords that highly motivated buyers type in to their search engines. So get to workin’, because it is a long road ahead.
