When faced with marketing a brand new product or idea, how do you optimize for keywords that nobody is searching for yet? Can you find other ways to present the product, such as focus on value proposition? Would social media help here?

Interesting discussion. This is a classic example of how one learns to build a query space.

That is easy, user generated content. Your user base knows what is hot and popular, especially the way to describe it, more than you first. Just make sure you give them this ability in an optimized structure. Once you realize the popularity of a keyword then you start creating some real pages around the topics.

I just recently went through this with a client. It was a service, not a product and the most popular keywords and phrases were not even close to what you would expect. I reviewed their server logs and looked at their content to find the keywords that best fit their site and I have to admit, I was a bit surprised by the results. Overall, I increased their search engine rankings by 150% in the first month.
