Rugs USA – Best Keyword Ever?

by Mike

Rugs USA is not messing around!

As you know, I’ve been on a quest to create new streams of income by building small niche sites outside of Saving Money Today.  Part of the fun I have is using Market Samurai to scour the net for keywords that I can build a niche site about.  Yes, this really is fun for me and you can call me a nerd if you want to…just remember I’m a nerd who is continuously increasing his online earnings.  :)

Anyway, during one keyword researching session I found one hell of a keyword!

It may not seem like much, but trust me you could make a killing if you worked this one right.  Let’s look at the numbers…

According to Market Samurai, rugs usa gets about 145 searches per day.  That’s not the greatest, but it’s not bad. Especially when you consider the Estimated CPC for the keyword.  (CPC is short for Cost Per Click, which is the amount that advertisers are willing to pay each time someone clicks on their ad.

Before I tell you the estimated CPC for rugs usa, you should probably sit down.  Are you sitting?

Ok, according to the Google keyword tool, the Estimated CPC for the exact match keyword phrase “rugs usa” is…


Don’t believe me?  That’s cool, I don’t blame you.  I’ll wait here while you go check it out for yourself.  Or better yet here’s a screenshot I just took…

Now before you start going crazy with images of yourself swimming in a giant money bin like Scrooge McDuck, you should know that it’s very unlikely you would actually see that amount per click.

First of all, that is just an estimate.  Market Samurai actually shows a much lower amount of $1306.98 (still pretty damn impressive though, and a lot better than those 5 cent clicks you’ve been getting!

Also, the CPC provided is the amount paid to be the #1 ranked advertiser in Google’s search results.  The prices can be very different for the content network, and that’s the amount that bloggers get paid on.  I suspect that Rugs USA is bidding an absurd amount to protect their brand as many other keywords with the highest cost per click are also variations of brand names.  But whatever their motives, it’s obvious that Rugsusa.com is not messing around!

Still it might be worth taking a glancing blow at the keyword.  The top 5 sites currently ranked are very strong and almost insurmountable without a heck of a lot of work.  But the bottom half of the top 10 is much weaker.  It might be possible for an established site to sneak onto the first page with a decent article about rugs usa.   And if they did, they’d be able to learn the true potential earning power of the keyword with the highest cost per click.

Considering it’s a brand, there really isn’t all that much potential in the keyword.

People should be careful when using Market Samurai as it does need to be discounted by your own algorithm, particularly in CPC assumptions.
