SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a common buzzword nowadays for website owners. And when you hear SEO probably the first thing that comes to mind is “keywords”.

We know that search engines use keywords to match against search strings and to understand what your website is about so they can determine how relevant your site is to a search query. So does that mean we should pepper our website at random with keywords everywhere we can, and watch our website traffic hit the roof? Well, if search engine machines were the only ones reading our website content, it would be so simple.

So many people dream of wild success in internet marketing. (I believed in the dream and I still do. J)

And certainly, there is no doubt that the internet has helped many millionaires spring up like mushrooms. Some are multi-millionaires before they hit 30 like Chad Hurley (YouTube), Blake Ross and David Hyatt (Mozilla). Of course, the most famous of all is Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, who is said to be the world’s 29th richest person with a networth of US$19.1 billion (yep, 9 zeros) dollars immediately after the FaceBook IPO in May this year.

So now we find tens of thousands, if not more, internet marketing courses and gurus advertised all over the web. They claim they can make you rich quickly through their internet marketing systems and courses.

True or hype?

A frequent question of a would-be internet marketer is, “What is the Best Niche Market for me to make money online?”

Well, I am going to say that there is no such thing as THE “Best Niche Market”. What works for you may not work for me. (It’s a bit like saying because I make great curry, everyone will be able to make great curry too. ;-) )

In my previous post (The Realities of Affiliate Marketing), I talked about choosing the niche that you are most passionate about, for example, a hobby of yours (say knitting) or something that greatly interests you (for example, camera equipment).
