    I'm glad that you are getting something out of this.


    Update:

    In this post I'll write a bit more about how do I find these long tail keywords and what are my standards.

    First I try to search for keywords that target my market (people who are in need of something and who have money) after that I use Wordtrackers free suggestion tool to determine actual searches per day.

    If there are about 20-100 searches I'll type the keyword in google with quotes and determine the competition.

    I'll usually take the long tail keyword if there is less then 50.000 of competing sites.

    I have quite some keywords that have only 50-100 competing sites and those are great but are in minority.

    Here are numbers for some of the long tail keywords that I found through Wordtracker:

    (s= actual searches per day in google, g= competition for the keyword in quotes)
    s 80, g 900
    60, g 18.000
    s 30, g 65
    s 40, g 90
    s 600, g 50.000
    s 40, g 20.200
    s 30, g 90
    s 40, g 5.000
    s 20, g 12.000
    s 40, g 60
    s 40, g 12.700
    s 20, g 30.000
    s 30, g 90
    s 20, g 40

    PS: the only reason that I wrote this post is that ezinearticles went down just as I tried to submit one of my articles :eek:

    It depends. Sometimes it's just three words and sometimes it's up to 7 words.

    I don't really care about how many words are in the keyword, what I DO care about is what's the traffic/competition ratio.

    Update:

    Today we've submitted 11 articles.

    I've only had 9% CTR at articles and my bro had 16% CTR. So I've decided to literally copy his resource box (it's universal) and I'll include it in the next 15 articles.

    Up to now the first 30 articles produced 180 hops on our blogs.

    Still no sales.

    Some say that it's a good idea to use the resource box for your last paragraph and incorporate links in that. What are you & your brother using?

    One of the greatest feelings in the world: searching Google for your own article and finding it published on another site (with my name as a guest writer).
    Hopefully it will increase traffic too.

    May be a simple questions, but I am not sure of the answers.

    1. How do you find these long-tail search terms?
    2. How do you find how many search there are for that keyword in google?

    Teapoint I've been asked the same question in PM and will just copy my response from there:
    - use the <a href="YOUR_URL">CLICK HERE</a> in the resource box instead of naked link
    - don't use marketing language (sky-rocket, instant, amazing, unbelievable, success... etc), people usually don't buy into it anymore
    - make your article a bit incomplete and write that you do go into detail into that topic on your website
    - have a nice transition into your resource-box so that it looks as a part of your article

    Aside from that TEST. Post 10 articles with the same resouce box (the same format) and notice the clicks. After that modify your resource box and post 10 new articles with that resource box. And notice the clicks again.
    This way you will be constantly improving.

    This is what we did and it's working for us.

    Update:

    10 of our articles have been accepted about 5 hours ago and have already started producing quite some clicks.

    [​IMG]

    My ctr with the 4 new articles is 17% so the new resource box did help.

    The CTR (visitors to hops) on our blogs is 30%! And we are really happy with this number.

    In the last 5 days the 45 articles (15 of the articles in the stats are old articles) produced 690 unique visitors (ezinearticles+organic+social bookmarking) and 200 hops.

    Note that only about 15-20 articles have been put on social bookmarking sites, so there is a lot of work yet to be done. I assume that those 45 articles will produce about 150 more hops in the next week.
    I think that it would be fair to assume the ratio 1 article = 10 hops (approximation).

    So to get a fair estimation if a product converts one should write at least 20 articles (=200 hops when properly used).

    Make sure you place modified articles on blogger, squidoo, and hubpages too.

    200 hops and no sales? Not looking great.

    I am starting to see about 1 sale for every 50 hops ... not fantastic but I am happy. I am using the same method as specified in this thread and started at the beginning of January.

    I wish I could say the same! I've gotten over 1,000 hops via article marketing in the past month and that produced 3 sales.

    I guess it all depends on the product you're promoting. I think the site http://www.cb-analytics.com/ could be useful for finding the right product to promote.

    HEY!
    Great thread. I like to see the motivation :) So many articles written in a short time.

    However, I suggest you to spend some time redoing your resource box. All my articles on EA get 35%-60% CTR on my links placed in the resource box...

    I still don't know how you manage to pull that off. An example would be nice. Just putting in a call to action and making the bio box the last paragraph won't get you click through rates that high. There must be something else.
