    I've been reading here on BHW that some members are making even $1,000 - $2,000 per month with Amazon, so I'd like to give a try to Amazon, too.

    I have found 2 keywords with very little competition - I think I could make it to the top 3 on Google. However, these keywords have 170 monthly searches (keyword 1) and 210 monthly searches (keyword 2). I know it's probably too little, but let's say I'm #2 on Google for one of these keywords and this keyword begins with "cheap" and these items on Amazon cost $100 - $200. Could I make 1 sale daily?

    Do you think I should go for this? Or should I rather find keywords with higher search volumes?

    Really depends on if you can rank highly. IMO target multiple keywords. If you can manage to have a good converting website then it'd be possible to do a sale every few days.

    if you want to promote your services to top google fast, in my opinion you should do seo for your keywords and you also can buy google adword service and have quality articles on big forums.

    OP, you're going to need more traffic than that to make real money with Amazon.

    Even if you could pull off 1 sale a day it would be marginally "worth it" at best.

    Think about the 1 sale day with the search volume for a minute. I usually believe in "never say never", but this is an uphill climb to say the least.

    If you were somehow able to rank and get 100% CTR from the SERPS, that is only 390 visitors a month. So you are talking about 1.something visitors per day. The likelihood they are ALL going to buy something isn't great.

    I'd broaden that out a bit if I were you. Check out the "best" and "review" terms of the same niche. If they don't check out I'd keep searching. This stage of keyword research can make you want to slam your head through a wall -- but the frustration is better spent now than in a year with a site that isn't ranking! I

    You will need a bigger search volume to make $1000 or $2000
