Clarification of issues from Day Eight of the 30 Day Challenge was the focus of Day Nine. Ed Dale acknowledged that most of our niches will not show on the top chart in Google Trends. This is because competing web pages of 30,000 or less rarely have enough traffic to get on the chart. If the keywords don’t show up on the graph, participants must look in the bottom right corner to the Languages – English section. The baseline phrase “male yeast infection” will be represented by the blue line. Compare that data with the red line (or the umbrella phrase). Ideally, the red line should be 1/5th or 1/6th the length of the blue line, representing about 80-100 searches a day. For a more exact figure, look at the ratio of red/blue and multiply by 500. So, if the red line is 1/5th of the blue line, that’s 1/5 x 500 = 100 searches per day.

I am certainly glad for this explanation, because I was a bit deflated after my Day Eight search results. Now, instead of zero viable niche candidates, I have at least one.

Following the clarification, Ed next introduced participants to the internet marketing magic number. That number is 200. Ed assumes that we will need 200 people to come to our site before one of them will buy. Therefore, the selected keywords must drive traffic and the assignment for the day was to narrow down the seven candidate niche markets to two. I’m going to take a look at some of the bonus material Ed provided for generating ideas before I commit. I’m still not satisfied with my search results. So, back to the drawing board I go. If you have any ideas to help me out, please feel free to leave me a comment below. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
