    Hello All,

    Been lurking for a while, reading plenty and arming myself with knowledge.

    I've had trouble finding a niche, and when I did, it was obviously impossible to rank for. So I thought, hmm, what about Spanish? So I looked around, played with LTP and found some KW's.

    Like the following:

    Would these be good keywords? My very basic understanding is that Plenty of Searches, plus a low keyword competition is a great mix for success.

    Is this right? Should I pursue said keywords?

    Any other advice or tips or help or discussion would be greatly appreciated as well.

    Thanks a lot, peace!

    Last two columns are: # of amazon reviews (doesnt matter much) and Keyword competition, meaning how easy it is to beat those sites to rank on page 1. 0 is easy, 100 is basically impossible, so those numbers look really good.

    Thoughts?

    Spanish market is very hard to monetize..

    You can try just focusing on Spain, that might work but still I have my doubts.
    I've tried latino market in the USA and a few latin countries and latinos are a hard market to make them pull out their wallet online (completely opposite to offline)..

    I still believe there is a huge opportunity there but haven't been able to crack the code..
    If I would have the time I'd try out in Mobile + low amount products (e.g. apps a 99c etc).

    Yes I agree traffic is important but it is not very easy to monetize especially in Latin America because buying online is not yet very common

    Foreign markets, including spanish, french and german are VERY lucrative right now due to low competition by marketers and the increasing internet penetration worldwide.

    That's definitely the case. I'm a gringo who has been living in Central America for three years now. These guys really want to get in on the online marketplace, but it's nearly impossible for them to do so. Even if they have a decent amount of cash there are many obstacles in their way.

    In the past three years I've live in; Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico & Panama. The problems include; even the middle class dont have bank accounts (which means no credit cards) because they don't trust them. Unless you live in a big capital city you LITERALLY don't have an address to ship anything to (200m sur de parque centro is hardly an address UPS is going to find), and even if you live in the capital city and have an address the chances of your new laptop getting there is slim. There's also the trust level. They really want to give their money to someone, in exchange for something else, but unless that something else is right there where it can be seen, they just don't trust the process.

    I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out the logistics of making money down here, but I just can't get it figured out. If anyone has any ideas, I'll be here another few years.

    I would suggest to start with monetization scheme. You might find it difficult to find a good affiliate program.

    For example Mercadolibre, which is the eBay of Latin America has closed its affiliate program long ago, because it wasnt profitable.

    Interesting stuff about the situation in South America, but guys if you can produce Spanish content I think your first target should be Spain, not the Latin American countries, ofc if the thing your are pushing allow that target market.

    OP all of the KW tools out here are only helping you to sift KWs more quickly. They just ease the process, it's not like you put some KWs in the software, take a look and bang, you know KWs are winner. Read around the forum there are some great KW research guides, which will improve your assessment skills in that area.

    In the end you can't really tell how easy or hard is a certain KW before you test it.
