The Importance of Being Organized

When I was new to I.M. I used to make new documents for every project, save them randomly (quickly) on my hard drives in places I forgot afterwards. Then over the years I’ve started to grasp how very important it is to be organized. There’s a saying that organization is key, well let me tell ya that is absolutely correct.

Now instead of making tons of new text files/docs with notes, etc I just make one spreadsheet on google docs, and name it Projects 2013, there I keep track of everything. Make new tabs if needed, but I noticed the easiest way to keep track is just to have everything on one sheet.

This was just a quick post, I hate blabbering on like those people who rewrite other peoples ebooks and try to act like true smartasses and go on and on and on rather than telling it, short and sweet.

StartUps – Well They Are Back

I’ve been around on the internet for over 15 years now, and lived through the dot com boom, and the bust.    History tends to repeat itself, and it seems to me the media has been putting a lot of attention on Startups as of late.     What made me want to write this quick post, well the new article I just saw on CNN.com -> http://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2013/06/tech/tech-list-startups/?hpt=hp_bn6

Oh No,  God Help Us, Not Again!     Startups while cool,  are always doomed to fail.     They put 99% effort into developing their products, and give very very little thought to marketing (those products) after development is done.

Cleaning Your Draft Keyword List

Finding keywords is a lot of fun, I use Google keyword tool (make sure you are logged in), Seobook keyword tool, and competition meta extraction dump analysis (see my post here)

I keep writing everything down, as I find more keyword ideas, chances are my list will be full of duplicates.      I use an online app by techmechanic (link) to remove the dupes,  all you do is paste your draft keyword list, then press remove duplicates.

After that is done, I paste my list into Google keyword tool, to check which ones are worthy.    Depending on the niche,  the amount of [exact] searches you want will differ.  I like to find keywords that are anywhere from 5000-100,000 searches local (in USA) per month.

Next step is to check competition for the top keywords,    I do this by entering in google using ” ” my keywords one by one, then I note down the total results found.

I enter everything into an excel, and in the end I divide my total searches per month (local) by the total results found, to get a number,  and then I sort this in ascending order.    The keyword that has the least amount of competition and the most searches gets the highest value, thus that is the winner I go with.
