So far on our journey to build the Niche Super-Site we have discussed:

We really need to start turning our attention to traffic for HistoryofElvis.com, but I wanted to start a small test first. Everybody always talks about long tail keywords, and they can be important for making money in a niche. In fact, Caroline Middlebrook has an excellent article on Long Tail Keyword Research that you should check out.

As a complete aside, saying “Caroline Middlebrook has an excellent article” is completely redundant. Every word on her site is excellent. But, I digress.

Anyway, I thought I would run a test. Let's see if we can rank for a really long tail phrase on HistoryofElvis.com. The phrase I have selected is

“Elvis Aaron Presley Collectible Necktie”

Now, those of you on the other side of the pond will notice that I have intentionally selected the Yank spelling of Collectible. According to Wikipedia, although “collectable” is the spelling listed first by the Oxford English Dictionary, and is standard spelling in British English, the dictionary observes that the “-ible” form is also valid, and has come to be common spelling in the United States.

Elvis Aaron Presley Collectible Necktie Search ResultsA quick check on google confirms that there are only 200 pages answering to this search, and none of them match very well. Additionally, a look at the Adwords keyword tool confirms that there is no search traffic and that there is no competition for that phrase. So, this should be like shooting ducks in a pond.

So, I have created a page on HistoryOfElvis.com with the following characteristics:

  • Page title tag is Elvis Aaron Presley Collectible Necktie
  • Page title is Elvis Aaron Presley Collectible Necktie
  • Keyword meta data is set to variations on the target phrase
  • Description meta tag is set to include the phrase 3 times.
  • Page slug is elvis-aaron-presley-collectible-necktie
  • The phrase Elvis Aaron Presley Collectible Necktie appears in the copy many times
  • The page is linked from the HistoryofElvis.com home page
  • There is lots of related product copy on the page

Now, to keep from passing page rank from latenightim.com to this page, I am not linking to it from here.

So, I launched the page today. You can find it from the HistoryofElvis.com main page of you are interested. Let me know what you think. I will report back the results in a few days (or you can check google yourself).

Thanks,

Mark
