The Death of Keyword Research

Alright so today I wanted to spill the beans on some deadly ninja assassin technique I have been silently working on for the past 12 weeks.

I call this ‘The Death of Keyword Research”… why is that? Because once you master all the techniques I will show you this week, you won’t have to do any keyword resarch yourself… It’s much more fun when you let other people do it for you!

But actually I want to do something special this week.. I want to give you the chance to win a free copy of my upcoming WSO. To do so here is your challenge:

1. Go to Google and locate one of your niche competitors

2. Find 10 of his other websites

3. Leave a comment with your results below or email them to me at bertrand (at) bertranddo dot com.

You won’t believe what kind of crazy niches you can find using this strategy.

Now let me introduce you to the topic of professional spying, watch the video below now:

  1. Hi Bertran,
    In the dating niche I spy on one of my competitor.
    For the keyword: ‘how to date’ the wesite comes out.
    So I spy on it and found that the owner have 25 websites. Here’s a list of 10:

    This owner know her stuff because her sites page rank are really high!

    Hope to hear more about your spying strategy.

  2. Awesome job Yann thats very ninja! Like you said looks like your competitor is heavy into old school authority websites, thats the kind of people we want to model! I noticed that for the keyword ‘how to date’ she pretty much has her meta title spot on on the keyword, nothing more and nothing less. I have received a few more submissions by email but I can tell you you are in very good standing! Excellent job!

    @Connie thats part of the challenge! You’ll need to find a way to unearth your competitor’s websites. If you can’t no worries, ill be sending you the exact technique in a couple of days.. Good luck!

  3. Hi Bertran,

    I wanted to try this exercise from scratch, in a niche I’m not even in, to see how deep I could get in under 5 minutes. Here were my results;

    Keyword – Six Pack Abs

    Chosen Site – – 640 Daily visitors

    Additional Sites
    – – 47 Daily Visitors
    – – 55 Daily Visitors
    – – 48 Daily Visitors

    From this I could pull keywords from the source code of these pages and there is my keyword research. However, as we can see that these additional sites generate very little traffic, so we would dive deeper to understand if the keywords are poor, or if she just fails to rank well and thus is not generating traffic.

    Using this method (and a free tool) and checked Yann’s main site and in under 30 seconds found these sites;

    I assume the other sites are linked to a different IP and that’s why the others didn’t show up.

    Looking forward to hearing more on your strategy.


    P.S – A little late, but welcome to Canada bro!

  4. Well, this sounded like an interesting challenge, so I’m going to search for the term “wedding”, as it involves one of my more profitable niches.

    First and easiest way to get at this data is doing a keyword search for the term, then looking up the first 10 or 20 sites theat come up in the results, see if anything pops out. And oh-boy, did it! Looks like on of my competitiors actually has over 211 sites to his credit! Here’s a few of them…

    The site I targeted was, owned by “Jin Yong”.

    I now have his address, phone number, email, and IP addresses associated with this account.

    Fundamentals about this site:
    Website Title:
    Best Wedding Photographer Video Washington DC VA NY NJ MD LI

    Note that some of these he has partnered with another person to produce, but all of them have either both or his name associated with it.

    Note that there is some conflicting data, I’ve gotten site worth of anywhere from $186 all the way up to about $755, depending on which analysis I use.

    All told, took about 5 minutes to come up with some fairly comprehensive data about the site, it’s owner, and how I can rank FAR better than they for the term “wedding” and about 70 other terms.

    I did take away about 30 terms I hadn’t delt with before, and I’ll be researching them next – so this was a profitable excercise !!

    Looking forward to your viewpoint, Bertrando!!
