If you log on to
PayPerClickSearchEngines.com you'll find they list over 600
different pay-per-click search engines operating online.
In fact, some online sources report that over 1,000
engines" of various size and popularity operate in the U.S.
With so much competition among sites to capture the search
traffic that Google.com and Yahoo.com seem to dominate like
800 lb. Gorillas, why would one new search engine rate even a
The answer: Amazon, the Web's mega bookstore, launched
a new search engine with a very user-friendly interface and
some of the fastest, most relevant searches online...
along with a **twist** that will help EVERY person who
wants to sell ebooks for profit, publish articles to get
traffic, or create special reports that go viral.
Here's the story...
Amazon recently launched www.A9.com
-- a search engine that
creates more of a "portal" experience than the traditional
search engine where you input your search terms, click a
button, and pray something relevant to your search appears in
When you first log on to A9.com, it looks like a traditional
search engine, but once you start searching, you'll find an
organized and extremely helpful set of search tools right at
A9.com organizes its search criteria by category
on the right side of the page.
Input a search term such as "mortgage loan" or "George
Washington" and you'll start to see why I like this search
engine so much.
When you first input your search term, the website
displays the "web" search results to show you various websites
A9.com deems relevant to your search.
Click the "books" button on the right and get a list of
the most relevant books available on Amazon.com.
Follow virtually any of those book links to the Amazon website
and you can literally browse through the table of contents,
first chapter, and even the index of most books.
Click on the "Movies" button and get a list of any relevant
movies with your search terms included.
One of the helpful things you'll notice as you start searching
different types of media is that you can show or hide
various search results on the same page.
So if you only want to search books and movies, you can hide
the Web and reference results.
Depending on the type of information you need to research,
you can also use the "Reference" results to get dictionary,
encyclopedia, and history information on the search terms you
Needless to say, when I did a search for "George Washington,"
this reference section overflowed with relevant links and
However, I was surprised at just how much reference material
was available for search terms like "mortgage," including
information from Investopedia.com on alternative search terms
to help me narrow my search for more relevant information.
Probably the biggest reason I like A9.com so much is that it
helps to wade through the ever rising tide of information that
threatens to drown us all online.
Depending on what you need to find, you can quickly get
suggestions, reference material, physical books, and even
information on available film and video without leaving the
Now, here's specifically how A9.com can help anyone who
wants to publish their own ebooks, articles, or special
#1 - Insert your main search term at A9.com
and look at 2 things: total web results (higher number the
better) and the books and movies tabs.
If you see a lot of web
results and tons of books and movies on the subject, you
have a VERY good (and fast) indication that the topic
you're considering is "hot" enough to warrant more
investigation for creating your own ebook, special
report, or other info-product.
#2 - Follow the look links to specific listings on
Amazon. Some of those books
will allow you to go through the table of contents, first
chapter, and index right there on your screen.
Use this opportunity to:
A. Make notes on the most important points on your topic
(from the table of
contents) and expand your list of potential
points to cover.
B. Get a feel for the general topic and the typical
authors are currently approaching it
** By the way, the
table of contents and / or first chapter will usually
give you at least one great idea for an article you
could create (or pay someone to create) and use to
generate traffic to your website.
Look for additional keywords you could use
pay-per-click campaigns as well as your headlines, bullets,
and other classified ads (in the index).
#3 - Use the "Reference" tab on A9.com to access the
dictionary, thesaurus, and other tools to find MORE keywords
you can use to advertise on pay-per-click search engines...
specific "niche" keywords many of your competitors probably
Though nothing on A9.com is actually new, it does present a
much faster and easier way to search the web, compare results,
gather marketing intelligence, and wade through available data
to help you with your own ebooks, special reports, article
writing, and other marketing activities.
