Where it came from:

It’s relatively new, only a few years old, version 2.0 with less than t  a year of live customers on it.  It’s still in it’s early phases and continues to grow in features.

It was created by Chris Carpenter (of Google Cash Fame…not the Xfiles), It was inspired by Chris’s experience generating  20-30K a month affiliate businesses by hand.  Freeing him up to live a high “internet lifestyle”. living on the beach in mexico, surfing and spending time with family, heli-skiing, surfing. traveling, etc.

How GCD works:

It uses it’s 2.5 million+ keywords and searches google 2x a day, crawling every ad, the landing page and puts them in a massive database hosted on a cloud computer.  At this point you can search it several ways, and see in many cases months of data.

This data will only get more valuable as time goes buy.


There are many competitors. But I haven’t been able to compare any side by side yet.

Now lets see how we can actually use it to find profitable niches
