Threaded View

I'm developing Internet content for small to medium-sized businesses
involved in niche products and services. I'm seeking listings of "least
popular keywords/phrases"; that is keywords experiencing significant
percentage growth patterns within say.... three month periods.

Such Internet content is aimed at audiences seeking emerging
industry/social trends; who would most likely use least popular
keywords in search-engines.

Many of these keywords may include newly quoted words/phrases, industry
jargon, long forgotten words making a comeback, etc.

In short, specialty words which may become increasingly-known to wider
and wider audiences over a period of a few months.


Re: SEO: Where to find listings of LEAST popular keywords/phrases.

I think you'd do better looking at middle-range keywords.  But there's
going to be a ton of them and you'll have a hard if not impossible time
determining which are developing into popular phrases given just one
set.  Maybe you could look at a few months worth of data and see which
keyword counts have the highest positive derivative with respect to
time.  But I suspect even that wouldn't work.  A lot of new popular
keywords spike relatively quickly to their introduction and then tail
off fairly quickly.  The Abu-Gruab story breaks and all of a sudden its
like #5.  Just my thoughts.

There  are software tools (only commercial as far as I can tell) that  en-
able you to query number of requests (volume) for a particular phrase. You
would  still  need to make guesses at good phrases and explore before  you
discover that 'perfect fit'.

Also  try asking this (maybe follow-up to) in,
which  is  quite  focused on SEO and boasts many dedicated  readers.  This
group  is seeing low volume of activity and is largely inactive (apologies
to mederator/creator).
