The reason for this is very similar process to how I run my offline busy physiotherapy clinics – it's information that can help me increase my reach, which for my offline business I “gather keywords” by researching what our patients and therapists say, what our competitors are doing (or not doing), and execute.
In the online world, it's the same, but a little easier in the sense that you can do it over the computer and the internet rather than having to meet different people.
In the past, online keyword research was a very manual process, because there was little to no good keyword tool that can help provide me the accuracy and depth that's equal or better to my manual research (plus many of the keywords out there was quite shitty – tends to be a platform trying to sell me some online program).
And that's my first dislike for keyword tools available then.
The Problem With Most Keyword Tools Out There
If you've bought any keyword tools before, you'd find that many of them produce/provides a lot of data and metrics and numbers that you have to wrap your head around and try to make sense of. There is a few problems with this, and firstly, the numbers given do not tally or make sense, which means it's utterly useless.
And secondly, because it overwhelms you and you have to try to understand the data, it'd take you time to realize that the data is useless, and now you have another problem: you wasted time.
To me, both are equally painful because time to me tends to be tight, so I have to be effective.
There are a few things that you need to be careful and wary of, especially when you buy keyword tools:
- Anything that requires you to install onto your PC/laptop (you're introducing software into your system…which may carry viruses, adware and malware that can extract information from your system or cause damage)
- Anything that requires you to take the keyword data and then “try to check with PPC” if it's/which is correct
- Anything that uses Alexa ranking to determine competition (please…no. Alexa is completely inaccurate, as it's biased – only websites that have Alexa installed on it will be ranked higher on Alexa)
- Anything that requires you to make a few searches to complete a singular search task
- Anything that don't pull all the results across ALL search engines
Any of this 5 items indicate that the keyword tool isn't good and is in fact of low quality. Anything with 2 or more of the above 5 problems definitely is rubbish and waste of your time – it won't take you very long to realize that keyword tools with such problems are just giving you poor data…which more importantly wastes your time from getting success online.
I'd Like To Introduce To You Jaaxy Keyword Research
Ok, so you know I prefer my manual keyword research process (in my experience, it's the most complete, and most reliable, but it's manual and tedious, but it's ok because its complete and reliable right) and I am not a big fan of keyword tools because they tend to provide useless data and fail to get the keyword I want to target for.
When doing research on my online businesses and niches, there are three main metrics that I WANT and NEED:
- how much competition does the keyword really have
- how much traffic does the keyword really get
- and does the keyword make sense
The first two is quite data driven which are metrics that Jaaxy can accurate capture, pull and reflect across all search engines. The third one is based on “common sense”. Keywords that has low competition and get a good amount of traffic are Search Engine Optimization (SEO)-friendly/ready and if you can find them and write good articles off them – you can easily and literally take over the search engines on those keywords.
It sounds easy…yes it is, but it's based on one key factor: it's easy ONLY if and when you have this data.
Which is why keyword research is so important and still makes my heart flutter today.
The Art and Science Of Finding “Money Making Keywords” Simplified
The biggest fear that people has on online business is two fold:
- not sure which niche to go into AND/OR
- if the niche they're going into has too much competition
And both are based on lack of keyword research understanding and knowledge!
I'll be frank with you, my fears are slightly different, I only fear that I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME to target all those low/no competition niches that is available out there. I've so many ideas, keywords and niches that I know I can build a full time income from.
Yeah, possibly good problems.
It's easy to create successful keyword campaigns because I know how to find a lot of low competition keywords within a niche, because when you have access to a keyword research tool like Jaaxy you can find things that no other keyword tool can do or access easily.
Ok, let's work through some examples that you and I can both confirm I have zero information about: “women's nylons” and “old age pensions”. What I'm going to do is to find keywords that has less than 300 competing pages in Google (in the entire world) which gets traffic and make sense.
Nigel's Weirdo Niche Choice #1: Women’s Nylons
Search 1: Womens Nylons (Keywords found)
So with one singular very broad keyword search in Jaaxy, I found 22 keywords that are pretty easy to rank in Google. One search with data within 20 seconds – these keywords are enough to start a campaign targeting women's nylons and nylon products.
Let's get on to the next one:
Nigel's Weirdo Niche Choice #2: Old Age Pensions
Again, within 30 seconds I already got 18 “old age pension” keywords that are going to work pretty nicely for my website. Actually, these keywords CAN be used on NigelChua.com to reach people who are looking into old pension as they are also likely to be interested in products such as WealthyAffiliate.com and Jaaxy.com that can help them build a business online (and during their retirement).
Both examples show how efficient is Jaaxy, I got the results of both searches in less than one minute, and these keywords are enough to start and ramp two brand new keyword campaigns in niches I have zero knowledge about.
In fact, if I did this research the manual way, it'd take about 2-3 hours…and maybe short of accuracy by around 20-30% from Jaaxy's Keyword Research.
Buying Exact Match Domains (EMD) and Domain Name Research
I don't know if this is a good problem or not (I think it's a good problem), but when you use Jaaxy, it also reflect to you what really good domain names are available even today (yeah, even though a lot of people have “rushed” to buy domain names).
Every search that you make in Jaaxy, it will also show you which Exact Match Domains (EMD) are available with the keyword search, up to 90 domains eat time (man, that's a LOT). Sooner than later, you'd realize that there are a lot of super good domain names that are still available, the .coms and the EMDs that people in the reselling business are selling $1000s of dollars for – you can get them all in Jaaxy.
Remember the “old age pension” search? Here are some EMDs:
These prime .com domains ARE available, and I could just buy all these domains up, put up small sites on them and because Google still ranks domains that has keyword in them high (even post Panda update that targets EMDs), I can possibly buy up first ranking in Google.
About $10 to $13 per domain per year, hundreds if not thousands of clicks. Quite straight forward and it's another completely complementary business model that Jaaxy opens up for me (and you) because of its ability to find matching EMD domains so quickly.
How To Choose A Jaaxy Keyword Plan That Fits Your Budget
Jaaxy has a lot of potential and a lot of features, and I barely covered the basics. There are niche finding “brainstorming” functions, if you want you can easily find where your sites are ranked in Google (ie which page are you on), find affiliate programs, analyze your competition and their websites, create buying keyword lists – so much more you can do.
I hope you're catching the idea on how powerful Jaaxy is.
There are a few different packages for different budgets, ranging for someone that is just starting out, to someone that understands and appreciates the power of good keyword research, and to the powerhouse online business internet marketer.
- Jaaxy Starter = Free
- Jaaxy Pro = $19 per month, $199 per year
- Jaaxy Enterprise = $49 per month (discount this week only), $499 per year
If you are not sure and you want to get your feet a little wet using Jaaxy, try the free version. It is limited, but you will get a trial run and test it out, and have a good idea of what to expect. If you are starting out and on a limited budget, Jaaxy Pro rocks – it will save you hours a day from all your keyword research activities and still has most of the functions within Enterprise, it just isn’t nearly as “quick”.
Jaaxy is web-based so you can acccess it from anywhere in the world that you have an Internet connection, including from your phone. I often find myself in the line up at the grocery store, or in MRT/commuting and finding keywords or when I get an idea when I am out and about, I do a search in Jaaxy (it stores all of your search history so you can use it to store your ideas!).
