Keyword Phrase:

picNiche is an easy to use keyword search tool for assessing the supply and demand of online stock photography images from microstock sites.

You search for a keyword phrase such as 'business man' or 'orange socks' and the search system assesses the sales statistics (demand) for images found relating to that search, along with the competition (supply) for that phrase, and returns a rating indicating the likelihood of making a sale as a result of that keyword phrase on your image.

The system rates keywords on an open-ended scale, so performing multiple searches will provide you with the highest rated keywords, those most likely to make a sale.

Rating < 10 is BAD
Rating > 10 and < 50 is OK
Rating > 50 and < 100 is GOOD
Rating > 100 is a NICHE
