Google Keyword Tool via Adwords & AnalysisGoogle used to have their own keyword tool as a separate service but to use it now you have to use it through Adwords because let's be honest, Google wants you to check out how cool Adwords is and pay for traffic. This tool shows you comparable searches and shows you some of the traffic behind certain keywords and more importantly how much people are bidding for that traffic. So first you get to see how many times certain keywords are searched and you can drill it down to country and languages. Next you can find out what these keywords are worth.
Just Use GoogleSeriously part of your research should be seeing which sites rank for what keywords. When you start searching for more niche topics you will find one of 3 scenarios: 1: maximum competition and everyone is doing it, 2: some competition but room to crack the top 10, 3: no competition at all. Rarely will you see no competition at all but there are some niches that are not maxed out yet. Your goal is to get a site up and running and in the shortest period of time get traffic (ideally search traffic) and get your first depositing player. If you go up against the giants in the business then your ability to rank for core keywords will become more difficult.
Namecheap Bulk Domain SearchAt Namecheap.com and a few other sites, you can use a bulk domain search to see if some domains are available. You would be surprised at some domains you can still find if you take the time to just enter in a lot of domains you would like to have and see which ones are available. This is an easy way to pick a niche and sometimes the niche can just come to you just by a domain being available.
