How to Do Keyword Research

September 22, 2008

This article, on How to Do Keyword Research, introduces a keyword research methodology every web entrepreneur can use.

The methodology I describe is unique; you won’t find this approach described in all the ebooks and articles on keyword research you’ll find on the web. My approach doesn’t require expensive membership subscriptions; it combines free data from a social bookmarking site, a web traffic measurement service, and Google user data to create a comprehensive inventory of your keyword universe.

How Effective Is It?

I developed this approach when I worked as a consultant and Internet marketing mentor for my friends Joe “Mr. Fire” Vitale and Jerry and Esther Hicks. Joe Vitale is now well-known as an “Internet marketing guru” and Jerry and Esther Hicks have become NY Times best-selling authors. Keyword research has been a foundation for the success of all my consulting clients. Over time I’ve refined the approach and I describe it in detail for the first time.

Startup Advice: Should You Attend TechCrunch50?

What’s the value of the TechCrunch50 conference for an entrepreneur? I attended the 2008 show and here’s my thoughts.

The publisher of TechCrunch, Michael Arrington, has organized a series of events to showcase outstanding web startups, with the collaboration of the Internet entrepreneur Jason Calacanis. The two day event in September 2007 was named TechCrunch40; the three day event in September 2008 was named TechCrunch50. In 2009, TechCrunch50 will be held September 7th to 10th.
