The principle of supply and demand is just as important in Internet marketing
endeavors as it is offline. While supply and demand offline is often used to
determine appropriate prices for goods and services, the online concept of
supply and demand as it applies to Internet marketing determines whether or not
there is room for more websites in a particular niche. This is very important
because a niche which is already saturated is not an ideal situation. In
selecting relevant keywords for a niche website it is important to evaluate the
competition and determine whether or not there is room in this niche for more
According to this supply and demand model, keywords should be examined before
delving too deep into a particular niche. This is important because the keywords
you select for your niche and your ability to optimize your website for these
keywords are both critical to the success of your Internet marketing campaign.
Some consideration to keywords should be given before selecting a niche. During
this time preliminary keywords should be examined to determine whether or not
the Internet is already saturated with these particular keywords.
Finding your niche to be saturated is not always an indication that abandoning
your idea all together is necessary. Sometimes it is possible to further fine
tune your niche into an even more specific idea. For example you may find there
is a great deal of competition for the keywords, “dog grooming” with many of the
competition coming in the form of large corporations. However if you further
break this down and perhaps focus on dog grooming in particular states such as,
“Alaska dog grooming” you may find there room on the market for your niche.
Characteristics of Valuable Keywords
During the process of selecting your niche, you likely examined the subject of
keywords on a preliminary level but now it is time to really begin researching
keywords for your niche. One of the most important characteristic of keywords is
relevance. The keywords you select for your niche should be relevant to your
website. This is important because, through search engine optimization (SEO),
these keywords will drive your target audience to your website. It is also
important because your website will be ranked by search engines according to
these keywords and if they are not relevant to the content of your website you
may be penalized with poor search engine results.
Keywords should also be innovative. There are likely many websites similar to
yours offering comparable products and services. They are your direct
competition and using the exact same keywords as them will not enable you to
stand out from the competition. Look beyond the obvious keywords for your
website and you will find yourself reaching more target audience members than
Finding the Right Words…Keywords That Is
Selecting keywords for a niche website is critical to the success of the website
and should be considered an important part of the Internet marketing strategy.
One of the most old fashioned, but reliable, ways to find keywords is through
brainstorming. Get those with a vested interest in the website together for a
brainstorming session particularly to develop keywords for the website. Sharing
ideas will help to get the creativity flowing and may lead to the development of
several new and innovative keywords for the niche.
Research is another step in the process of selecting keywords which cannot be
underestimated. Start out by using search engines for your research. Many search
engines provide reports on the popularity of certain search terms. The relative
popularity of a particular term is a good indication of whether or not there is
an interest in a certain niche. Next enter these terms into search engines to
evaluate the direct competition. This will give you a good idea of how the
competition is marketing their products and services. You can use this valuable
information to expand upon their ideas and tailor their marketing strategy to
meet your needs.
