You might be knowing that Gotham and Proxima Nova are of the those most popular font typefaces around the web as well as expensive too. But fortunately we have got some premium alternatives of these fonts available at Google Fonts. Proxima nova is created by Mark Simonson who has created total 7 condensed, regular, bold and bold italic fonts for Proxima nova and all these are so beauty fonts that are supported by every web page.

Gotham is world class font typeface which celebrates the attractive and unassuming lettering of the city. Public spaces are teeming with handmade sans serifs that share the same underlying structure, an engineer’s idea of “basic lettering” that transcends both the characteristics of their materials and the mannerisms of their craftsmen. Gotham supports three font families Gotham Narrow, Extra and Condensed.

Here top five alternative fonts to Gotham and Proxima nova fonts. Four of these fonts are from Google fonts and another from Linotype.com who specially provides quality web fonts paid and some of them are free licensed. Note that, these lists are chosen by my own accord and hope that you will like them to design typography of your sites.

Proba Pro Regular

Proba Pro Regular
The Proba Pro Regular is close to Proxima nova and Gotham, the free premium font available to download at Linotype.

Arimo

Arimo
Arimo was designed by Steve Matteson as an innovative, refreshing sans serif design that is metrically compatible with Arial™. Arimo offers improved on-screen readability characteristics and the pan-European WGL character set and solves the needs of developers looking for width-compatible fonts to address document portability across platforms.

Arvo

Arvo
Arvo is a geometric slab-serif typeface family suited for screen and print. The family includes 4 cuts: Roman, Italic, Roman Bold, Bold Italic. It is a open font distributed through the Google Font Directory. The flavour of the font is rather mixed. Its monolinearish, but has tiny bit of contrast (which increases the legibility a little in Mac OS X.)

Montserrat

Montserrat
The old posters and signs in the traditional neighborhood of Buenos Aires called Montserrat inspired me to design a typeface that rescues the beauty of urban typography from the first half of the twentieth century. The goal is to rescue what is in Montserrat and set it free, under a free, libre and open source license, the SIL Open Font License.

Raleway

Raleway
Raleway is an elegant sans-serif typeface family. Initially designed by Matt McInerney as a single thin weight, it was expanded into a 9 weight family by Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida in 2012 and iKerned by Igino Marini.

It is a display face and the download features both old style and lining numerals, standard and discretionary ligatures, a pretty complete set of diacritics, as well as a stylistic alternate inspired by more geometric sans-serif typefaces than its neo-grotesque inspired default character set.

How About These Fonts?

I think you have got these collections handy as they are all free but effective to design web typography, headlines, body fonts, quotes and more.

Search at First Paragraph

Search at First Paragraph
The beginning paragraphs include the maximum keywords of which we have seen a small part on Google’s SERPs. This is the native feature of Google to highlight keywords from first 10-15 lines of beginning paragraphs of any article.

Now read very carefully of the first paragraph and you will find your niche based targeted long tail keywords, like the below image

Sometimes you may locate most popular articles on Wikipedia which are nominated as series based articles and topped as record times read on internet. So for these articles Wikipedia will suggest you “Part of a series” on right corner of the article page.

I think you have already gathered bunch of highly targeted and potential keywords from Wikipedia, now it’s time to justify these keywords, “How better they can perform with your target article, how about their monthly search volume, suggested bids (for adsense earning) and keyword competition,”

These important data you can only get from Google keyword planner so let’s get started the second part of this article

Monthly searches, Keyword competition
Also thousands of Ad group keywords, and relevant Short tail keywords

Scroll down the page a little you will see the most potential keywords

How to Pick The Targeted Search Strings?

This is highly recommended that you pick only “Long tail keywords” having “Lower” competition and don’t pay attention on Suggested bid since this varies from times to times but your target must be long tail phrases with lower competition.

Moz has described the beginner’s guide to keyword research for niches, which you can have the best article ever for keyword research on internet. If you want to get more keyword suggestions then use these references:

Need More Support?

By this guide I have tried to make it clear to understand Wikipedia’s power of search keyword volume and how you can utilize this highest potentiality of search keywords to apply on your niche. The only benefit you get about this procedure is that you don’t have to think for random keywords the vocabulary of Wikipedia will suggest you thousands or millions of search strings which you can manipulate on other keyword research tools like Keywword planner, Ubbersuggest, Wordtracker and more keyword research tools.
