    for those of you who successfully operate amazon affiliate sites, could you tell me, should I concentrate on KWs containing only "best" or "review"?

    for example if my site is about remote control tanks, would targeting "remote control tanks" as a KW be bad, because google will look for ecommerce sites? not my information bases site? or could I still rank well?

    Thanks

    In my opinion review KW's are a lot easier to rank for than best KW. For an Amazon Affiliate site you should target buyer intent KW (like cheap, top 10, best review etc.) and not KW like remote control tank as you are highly unlikely to outrank the big e commerce stores like amazon, walmart etc.

    Thank you, that's what I expected, but of course adding the word best, cheap or review ect drastically reduces the search count :(

    It's easier to go for the lower hanging fruit sometimes.

    Low hanging fruit is what you should be going after. Lots of articles targeting 50 or 100+ monthly searches soon adds up. With these KW they should be easy enough to rank that good on-page seo will be enough to rank decently.
