Micro Niche Finder review – once again, I only review products on this site that I actually use and will not entertain the idea of reviewing any product that I have not personally used before.
I purchased Micro Niche Finder (MNF) some 20 months or so ago. I don’t even remember the cost of it back then. But its been my keyword tool of choice ever since – I also use the excellent Google keyword tool, which as you know is entirely free… https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
In fact, each time MNF is updated it gets a bit better – more functionality. And its updated about twice annually or perhaps more. This cannot be said for all software products that I have invested in before. Some of which, upon an update, simply become more complex. I really have an innate dislike for complex software products. For me to use anything regularly it has to be fairly simple to understand and to get something near to the best functionality from it. Fast and easy to use!
I do not propose that I use all the MNF functions. There is no need for me to do that. But I utilize the main ones which I shall briefly go through here. By all means, if you do decide to invest in MNF then take a bit of time to play around with it and get to know what the main stats actually mean. Its well worth knowing as much as you can with regards to choosing good keywords for your campaigns so don’t cut corners!
Domain name availability: as it says, this neat function will allow you to very quickly assess if the domain name is available in any of .com .net or .org
Local search: these stats will depend on which Google server you are using for your searches. The Google server can be changed to suit your needs. So, say you wish to do a keyword search specific to Australia, you can set this under “Search Options” at the top of the MNF interphase. Local search stats show you the previous month’s searches in Google for your chosen keyword from the locality dependant upon the current Google server. Exact phrase searches are provided by default, which makes the figures that much more reliable if you are targeting them for your own campaigns.
Global search: this stat shows search volume month to month on a global scale, but also averaged over the period of a year. Again, the figures show exact phrase searches.
The ad cost speaks for itself – not to say that we get paid this amount per click. A good rough estimate would be to take a quarter of this figure as the amount we will be paid per click.
The other stats such as the SOC or strength of competition etc. I merely have a quick look at. I don’t value these figures too highly when deciding which keywords to target or otherwise. I use my own measure for this purpose.
The current price of Micro Niche Finder: $97.00
Worth the investment? For sure! If you are serious about SEO and keywords then MNF is a great investment – its a one-time investment too, so no monthly or annual fees like so many other keyword finding products on the market!
The Google keyword tool already mentioned – I use this tool to ensure that there are no thoroughly errant search volumes provided by MNF. After all, once I decide on a keyword to target, not only is there some expense involved in buying a domain name (and perhaps even having a website built and articles written etc.), but the time involved in targeting the keyword can be very substantial! It would be foolish to rely totally on one stat when its easy to double check via the Google keyword tool.
By all means if you have any questions or comments then leave them below and I’ll do my best to get back to you asap!
