So I have a subject area I am interested setting up a blog with. At some point I plant to run google adsense on it, but not right away as my main goal is to get traffic first.
Im still a bit in the dark about search for and choosing keywords.
Its my impression that you want to choose keywords that:
- have decent levels of advertiser competition and cpc value based on results from google's keyword tool
- few as possible results from using allintitle for your keyword/phrase
Im sure you could refine the above criteria, but what im wondering about at the moment is the relation between the keywords in the keyword tool and expanding the keyword into a phrase in the allintitle search.
In other words, lets say that "dog walking" is one of my key phrases I found with the keyword tool. Then I type in "allintitle:dog walking" and the search result count is too high to my liking. So then, I refine the search a bit with "allintitle:dog walking service dallas", which had a much lower count. Is it not really consistent to modify the search terms this way going from the keyword tool to using allintitle?
