Local Search Marketing Keyword Content Strategy: Porters of Racine Appendix

While doing research for my Porters of Racine post in Google’s keyword external, I noticed that the keyword sets were large and that the keyword data for Kenosha furniture, Milwaukee furniture and Wisconsin furniture had interesting attributes. These keyword sets were not changed except to remove any query with the term terms implying outdoor furniture or terms that included terms like used, cheap, etc. It also only includes the top queries, not the long tail low volume ones.

The first thing one notices is as the geographic search qualifier term covers a larger geographic area the quantity of searches in the head containing a branded term fell for these furniture terms.
Wisconsin Furniture Monthly Search Queries
Attribute 38119 95.4%
Branded 1818 4.6%

Milwaukee Furniture Monthly Search Queries
Attribute 14014 83.6%
Branded 2757 16.4%

Kenosha Furniture Monthly Search Queries
Attribute 2070 78.7%
Branded 560 21.3%

Does anyone know of anyone who has studied this issue on a larger basis across many geographies and industries? It makes sense to me I don’t yet have enough data to elaborate on it further at this time. It would make sense though as when you are looking to travel farther you are less clear of the path and that when you are doing a hyper-local search you could be influenced by such queues as seeing the physical location and word of mouth marketing factors. If you’ve noticed similar trends, please let me know about it with via a follow on post or private email.

The following is the keyword data I used in the analysis so you can see how I classified the attribute versus branded data:

    Perhaps what you have found is something that would be very useful for someone looking to start up a furniture store in those areas and avoid competition from big brands.

    I guess, to me, it makes complete sense that the search volumes would be higher for non-branded search queries, unless I am missing something. The broader the term, the more searches.

    Interesting, I never came across this, especially how you noticed it. Thanks for sharing, I’ll keep an eye on mine for that.
