4 Free Tools for Finding Hot Affiliate Marketing Niches and Trends

Posted on July 30, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

1. Google Trends: http://www.google.com/trends

Google trends is a nice little tool by Google that lets you take a sneak peak at the day’s hottest searches.

Google Trends highlights searches that have sudden surges in popularity rather than showing the most popular searches overall, which would always be generic terms like “weather.” The algorithm analyzes millions of web searches performed on Google and displays those searches that deviate the most from their historic traffic pattern.

Google Trends, which is updated hourly shows a search-volume graph, the top cities, and news results to help give context about why a search may be appearing on the Google Trends list today.

You can also compare up to five trends by putting comments in between the keywords. For example, the ipod vs zune.

2. Yahoo Buzz: http://buzz.yahoo.com/

Yahoo buzz, which is updated weekly, is another great tool when searching for the latest hot trends or when searching for new niches.

A subject’s buzz score is the percentage of Yahoo! users searching for that subject on a given day, multiplied by a constant to make the number easier to read.

Categories include, Overall | Actors | Movies | Music | Sports | TV | Video Games.

I personally could see the Video Games section being very useful. (hint: PPC, Direct Linking, Amazon). Or maybe the hottest lyrics section (hint: ringtones?).

3. AOL Hot Searches: http://hotsearches.aol.com

With AOL Hot Searches you can find out what are the most popular AOL searches among various categories. You can view the current top electronics and gadget searches, popular auto searches, top music searches, vacation searches, personal finance searches and many more. Think outside the box! There are many great ways to use this kind of data.

4. eBay Pulse: http://pulse.ebay.com

This is one my favorite new tools that I recently discovered and plan to use often. eBay Pulse shows a daily snapshot of current trends, hot picks, and cool stuff on eBay. This tool can be particularly useful when brainstorming new affiliate marketing niches. Once you choose a main category be sure to click on the category dropdown menu again on the results page to narrow down you nice even further. For example:

eBay Pulse > Baby > Car Safety Seats

1. britax
2. graco
3. eddie bauer
4. britax marathon
5. evenflo
6. car seat
7. cosco
8. peg perego
9. century
10. britax boulevard

Now you have found a list of the most popular searched for “car safety seat” brands on eBay which also is fairly likely also the most popular on Google Search as well. Pretty cool huh!
