Keyword research and analysis involves three “steps”: ensuring the site can be indexed in the search engines, finding the most relevant and popular keywords for the site and its products, and using those keywords on the site in a way that will generate and convert traffic. A follow-on effect of keyword analysis and research is the search perception impact. Search perception impact describes the identified impact of a brand’s search results on consumer perception, including title and meta tags, site indexing, and keyword focus. As online searching is often the first step for potential consumers/customers, the search perception impact shapes the brand impression for each individual.

“..PAC Course is amazing, I have been online trying to make money on the internet for the past 15 years now… I have paid a miniscule amount of money for Jims course, and have made sales with ‘Amazon FBA’ everyday for the last 3 days, I have always believed that you can make money on the Internet, and knew that there is no magic pill, and no free lunch as they say, and the amazing thing here is, I recently decided that I will get rid of eBay and focus on Amazon FBA, but I can not do that now, because yesterday and today, I’m also making some sales with ebay…(Its all about the mindset, guaranteed!!) Not telling you this to brag, but it just goes to show, that if you implement what you are being taught here, the proof is in the pudding. Love It! Thank You Jim Cockrum, you’re a star…Very Happy” — Nigel1962 (on the MST forums)

Our decision to move away from Mailchimp was primarily due to them enforcing subscribers to double opt-in (which was reducing our list size by about 15%), and the fact that we could do virtually everything we needed in GetResponse for almost half the price.

The first thing I tell them is to go to your ProvenAmazonCourse.com website and signup for your courses and training material. Without fail, the ones who have followed my advice have started to see positive results and the others (every single one who doesn’t follow my advice) are floundering. It’s amazing and a testament to your products and services. The ones who have purchased your training materials are sooo enthusiastic and I think that attitude serves them well.” — L. Harper
