    Fo those who do not know me I am an Amazon affiliation lover (I am the author of this Amazon journey) and I love to make Seo tests. Now I go straight to the point with data timeline and case study!

    On 16/03/2015 I created a Blogspot website with only 1 goal: ranking 1st for a 1300 Search Volume low competition keyword (12K total results on Google.it). This keyword concerns a physical product sold on Amazon.it and it's a seasonal one.

    My spending was 13 € to buy 3 simple and short contents around 500 words each with set &f orget business model in mind.

    On 16/08/2015 my Blogspot website with 3 contents is first for the main keyword with 1300 search volume with no link building because there is not competition but people is buying this product because is useful.

    So far the site has produced 2K € in 100% passive mode with no maintenance and without many optimizations (and above all continue to do so because it is always first in Google.it).

    Now you must be wondering how do you find that easy keywords? In this post you can find the answer using SemRush + Excel + simple formula based on my experience on keywords. You can do it for US/UK etc markets too. Go smart and create your passive income streams

    Excellent results. Some questions.

    1. Does this work with the free version of SEMRush or do you need the paid version?

    2. Do you need Excel to use the formula, or will it work with other spreadsheet software?

    This is perfect way to filter keywords, In 15 minutes I found some real good ones, and I found people that already used this keywords on niche sites with literally 0 links and I see other keywords they are ranking for with same technique.
    You really shared a gold nugget Argan, thank you!

    No, 0 social profiles, was only a test.

    You need to download a lot of keywords and you can't do it with the free SemRush version. You can use any spreadsheet software that allows you to apply the formula.

    Do it, Google is a gold mine and only few can extract that gold.
    I have many other " techniques " to share, and I'll do it when I have positive results from the ongoing tests.

    Hey argan plz check this
    Your formula (NR/SV^1.3)*1000
    But in your image you have shown SV/NR^1.3 . SO which is the correct formula as per you?

    Was it an expensive seasonal product?
    I don't know if asking this question is deemed "out of line" or not.
    If it is, I apologize.

    Thanks for the share, amazing profit!
    May I ask - how do you figure out you're going to rank #1 on Google, even if the search volume is relatively low? Did you have any method to check competition (maybe you didn't check)?
    I have a website I'm trying to rank, in which the main kw has about 1500 local volume search monthly, but still ranks relatively low.
    Thanks again

    Hi Argan,

    Do you think, using Blogspot had an influence that the site ranked that easily/good or do you think it could have been done also with a free wordpress.com site for example?
