Search terms relevancy in adwords keyword tool

Here is a good learning worth to be shared. For small keywords, like “mp3”, “laptop”, “travel”, and so on, adwords keyword tool shows tons of searches. Well, this is not correct. Here is a test I have done: I found a term that was searched 110k/month according google adwords keyword tool (simple term). I found the dot com free – I bought it instantly. I made a site and brought it to first position in google, in spite of heavy competition. Now I have less then 100 visitors on that search term per month! I expected at least 1k/day only from that search term only. Instead I’m getting a lot of traffic for more complex search terms, that includes that domain term. So overall I don’t regret doing it ­čÖé Using this tool should be consider approximate (I had a similar conclusion some 2 years ago, when I noticed that on some key terms I have generate more traffic than google says is the...

Google is focusing more on localisation

Lates google.com’s change in algorithm is pretty weird. Because it gives a bigger importance for the sites reputation than the exact search term. And the only potential explanation is the increase on importance for localisation. Explanation: You search a string “a b c” where a b c are separate words. Until recently, if you had a page optimised after abc and the competition was zero for that one, your page would come up. Now, it does not, because google prefers to show in the organic results sites with higher reputation that has only the word a or b or c. And this is not what you need. So much for the long tail. Example: Trainingul parintilor eficace If you search on google.com this string, it pops the following results: On google.ro it shows a normal result, after the same search: Is weird why on google.com it prefers other algorithm. Maybe this focus on localisation is becoming more and more...
