General Chatter / Google encyclopedia to siphon MORE searches?

Creating more problems for web site owners even if they appear at the TOP of search results?

New Product Ideas / getting info from Social media
« on: January 16, 2014, 03:14:36 PM »
I am not doing internet marketing at the moment because I am concentrating on my studies, BUT it's hard not to see some other uses for software that I am using as part of my studies!  ;D

One piece of software I use (expensive but I get access to it, a year at a time) has a new feature that I am just starting to explore. It "captures" web pages but more than that, it captures DATA from places like Facebook, Twitter and LinkdIN. The person demonstrating this has produced a youtube video showing how you can get information from OPEN Facebook pages (NOT private ones) and OPEN Twitter feeds and collect the data, such as conversations on particular points. The page she used was on Asthma, for instance, with people listing their common asthma triggers on the Facebook page. She was able to capture that data for research purposes.

Presumably, that data would be equally useful for IM purposes?

I don't know if people already have access to this type of program? Or whether they would be interested in seeing the youtube video? I can post the link if anyone is interested.

Keyword Canine / zero niches discovered in the last 30 days?

I have not seen ANY "niches discovered in the last 30 days" for a couple of weeks now.  Have put a ticket in.

General Chatter / Help vampires

Interesting and funny post on "help vampires" here:

It covers those people who swamp useful forums and suck the life out of them by asking the same tired old questions without trying to find their own answers first - not that anyone on here would do such a thing!

General Chatter / Spintext spam blog comments
« on: December 12, 2013, 05:36:48 AM »
I got a spam blog comment on one of my sites today, however, they posted the whole spintext!  ;) It starts off:
{I have|I’ve} been {surfing|browsing} online more than {three|3|2|4}
hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
yours. {It’s|It is} pretty worth enough for me. {In my opinion|Personally|In my view}, if

Thanks.| ...... There's an AWFUL lot more! And so many of the spam comments I have seen are included in it.  I don't know if this is one that has been sold on a few times or whether someone has just cobbled it together from spam comments they have received!

Thrifty Content / December flash sale
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:49:25 PM »
NOTE: Sale ended at midnight PST 2 Dec 2013
OK - I bought the December flash sale from Jon's email, with 251 articles on weight loss PLUS the keyword list of 15,000 related keywords and decided to do some work on them tonight - right now!

This is what I did. Happy to take comments, if you want to make any.  ;D

I first did a "save as" on my file, in case I made a mistake!
I took the keywords, which were in a CSV file and opened them in an Excel spreadsheet (or any other spreadsheet program will work too) selected them all, then used the data "sort" tool to list the keywords in order of the number of searches each month. They keywords ranged from thousands for "weight loss" right down to small numbers for other long tail keywords. By doing it this way, there were some keywords in there that did not appear to me to be related to weightloss and I deleted those.

As there are 15,000 keywords, I decided to use the top keywords only and stopped at 200 searches monthly. I saved the spreadsheet with only my chosen keywords (those with searches greater than 200 per month)

I looked at the top few keywords and found one I liked, including a common keyword. I then searched down through the keywords I had saved (use Ctrl +F in Excel to do a "find") to find any other keyword searches that used that particular word. There were 11 keyword phrases that all included that word. I copied and pasted the keyword phrases into a notepad file, one per line and then wrote two paragraphs, using all those keywords in a natural way. That became my introduction to a long article. I also used 3 of the phrases as "headers" for an article.

I then searched through the zip file of PLR weightloss articles that I bought from Jon and selected 9 paragraphs from different articles that fitted exactly to the "headers" I had chosen. I tweaked them a bit (because I am fussy  ::)) and pasted the article to a weight loss website.

Using the keywords and articles this way, I have a LOT of material that will be unique and that I can post as I get round to it. I do NOT have masses of sites that I need to post thousands of articles to.

Keyword Canine / Commercial intent
« on: October 03, 2013, 12:50:09 PM »
It's easy to find key words and niches with KC but how do you know whether people BUY on these keywords? There used to be another tool (no longer sold) that told you the "commercial intent" of people using that keyword to search. For instance, if I do a search on "study skills", I might well be a student looking for free information, so that keyword, while popular, is not likely to have any commercial usefulness, whereas "lego", although it is a child's toy, might be being searched for because Christmas is coming along and people may be searching for toys for their children, so that keyword might well have "commercial intent". So how can you determine the commercial intent of any particular keyword. Is it possible? (Apart of course from the obvious key words such "where to buy ...)
