When you are experimenting with keywords, you usually want to target
high traffic words that have little competition.
However, you can also go with markets that have very high traffic and
a weak market.
If a site is properly optimized it will have a higher chance of being
at the beginning of the google search results. So we only care about
those sites, not the ones that are on page 501=85 just page 1-3 or so.
So how do we check how many optimized sites there are?
Well, without spending days / weeks=85. you don=92t. However, there are
some very easy ways to give yourself a general idea of how strong the
Google will let you add very specific parameters to your searches if
you know how to use it properly. One of the more advanced searches it

Let me give you an idea of what I mean. Lets use the examples from

google results: 1,510,000
google results: 51,000
google results: 1,620,000
google results: 63,700
This means that out of those original sites, only 51k of them are
properly optimized. This can help you quickly pick out very weak
Believe me, there is much more involved in finding a weak market, but
this will give you a general guideline, as a strong market will have
many optimized sites.
In another post I will address looking up domain age, page rank and so
Re: Weak Markets
Seems to me that a keyphrase search frequency tool would be ideally
suited to search for "weak markets" rather than determining the "weak
markets" using your approach. Just because a keyphrase doesn't appear
in the Title is not much of a guidelight about the power of a web page
within it's market.
