The internet and its potential.
In today’s world, the vast majority of people have a computer or a laptop, and an internet connection. Most people, however, don’t really understand to what degree the internet has changed our live and our society.
Over 3.3 billion people are using the internet on a regular basis. Most of them visit the internet every day, spending hours on social media or surfing around looking for information. Over 80% of those people has, at some point, made a purchase online, and many of them even make a habit of purchasing online!
What Do People Commonly Search For On The Internet?
There are at least a billion searches conducted each and every day on all these popular and widely used search engines. However, the matter of concern is what these people actually search for. There are some tools and platforms that can be effectively used to determine what people search for on the internet.
1. Google trends
This facility allows the users to tap into a database of Google for all searches. This can also help in determining which of all these keywords are extremely popular. You can hence view the volume of the search queries over a certain period of time. There are also certain categories that can be used and these are mainly on the basis of categories, regions, sub regions and languages.
2. Your Google Autocomplete
This is another great tool that is called as the Google Autocomplete and it can also help you round out your search. This can simply be done by providing all the keywords that are seen based on the past searches. When a user types a particular keyword into the search box, there are many other keywords that are offered and displayed for a user to choose from them.
3. The buzz log
This tool is capable and helpful as it can show all the popular and top keywords that are being searched at that point of time. A buzz score is always present and it is the one that is taken into consideration. There are also a few additional options that can narrow down the buzz log.
4. AdWords keyword tool
You can enter terms or even a single term in order to search the volume of all your keywords as well as the competition that it is facing. There are also a few advanced options and filters that can allow you to refine in terms of locations and languages. This can also be done with the help of a mobile and a typical desktop.
5. Twitter search
Twitter is one of the top 3 social media platforms at this point of time. There are a hundreds of millions of users that use Twitter on a daily basis. Thus it naturally becomes a useful tool o recognize what people are searching for. You can check out the trending celebrities and users from all over the world, the trending news topics and other subjects on current affairs. It is one of the important things to remember.
The internet has in fact become a gigantic shopping mall, with unlimited income potential for those who manage to tap into that source. Surprisingly, the number of people who have taken advantage of this modern age gold rush, has thus far remained relatively small.
Why don’t we take advantage of the internet?
Although the online publicity around the concept of making money online has increased tremendously, the number of people who actually decided to do it and succeeded in it, has remained relatively low.
This is mainly due to 2 reasons.
First of all, there is the fact that creating a truly successful internet business is not as easy as most ads make it seem, and it also takes much more time and effort than most people expect and are willing to invest in it. This results in statistics which are, truth be told, more positive than those of real life businesses, but which also show that the number of really successful people is very limited.
The second reason is the overall negative attitude towards creating a business in general, and online businesses in particular. This is an attitude which has been created over the last 300 years, in order to support a corporate society. It is the idea that any form of business is very risky, and requires high intelligence, extremely hard work and a strong dose of good luck. Any business model which dares to insinuate the contrary, is therefore considered impossible, or rooted in crime!
And yet, reality shows that even people with rather low intelligence can create a successful online business, without the need for extreme efforts. Efforts must be made off course! No viable business can be created without a decent amount of efforts, and even an internet business requires some level of mental abilities.
