On this post, I am going to show you an unique way of searching high-traffic keywords. As many of you know, many sites use free traffic counter service provided by ExtremeTracking.com. Most of the statistical data of these sites are public and for you analyze.
So, go to google.com and make a search for “site:extremetracking.com/open ref2″ followed by a main keyword. I searched for adsense using “site:extremetracking.com/open ref2 adsense”. You need to have a space between the search phrase and the keyword at the end. I wanted to keep the results relevant to “adsense”.
But google does not list them by traffic or importance. I used the PageRank Search tool that I have used in my Using Post Text Link Ads Effictively post. Remember to choose Pagerank for the Sort By option and 100 for the number of results option. And when the results page come up, change the number value at the end of the url to something like 10000 and press enter.
Now look at the top 10 pages and go the part that says “All Keywords” and try to form long tail keywords from the top three keywords that generated the most traffic. Happy keyword finding and wait for more innovative and unheard SEO techniques from Turk Hit Box! :)
