    My keyword research skill is very bad. I honestly admit that.
    I always end up targeting the wrong keyword.
    Because the keywords if not the competition too much, they are not a profitable one.

    So, I wish to overcome this problem by hiring other people to do the keyword research for me.

    For those who do the same, what is your experience, does it worth it or I just need to grab something like Keyword Scout and do and do all over again. But it such a waste of time don't you think so?

    and how much do usually pay them?

    Thanks. :)

    If you can wait I can be of help.

    You seriously don't need to hire anybody to do keyword research though, just pick a niche that you think you can make money from, and dig deep.

    The problems I perhaps dig too much and have a lot of keywords which I cannot identify to be the "make me some money" keywords.

    I already setup a website promoting clickbank products. The niche is on weight loss. (Is this the problems?) I started to run the SEO campaign since early 2011 but it doesn't convert to any sales and even the traffic are low.

    I started to doubt the keyword that I've choose.

    I'm doing SEO by AMR, SB and hire Xrumer blast.

    If you could help me, I really don't mind waiting. :)

    CyberZilla has a buy/sell thread here somewhere for keywords. I recommend checking it out.

    I'm checking his thread now. It seems his price is reasonable for me.

    Btw, how's your experience using his keywords?

    What would be your ideal methods of monetization? Are you looking to make strictly adsense, cpa, or clickbank offers?

    We'd all be able to trust that list.......lol......but at least it would provide us all with a great list of new areas to research.

    I bought some months ago a keyword from cyberzilla.
    He told me CPC would be $0.9, in reality I get $0.5 - but I think it isn't his fault.
    I only monetized via Adsense and hadn't big success. RPM is $4 because of a very very bad CTR - the same template I am using on all my sites with CTR of 9 or 10..

    On the other side I have to say that I am only #5 for that keyword, I could easily multiply my earnings with some SEO efforts but my other sites need more attention..

    I am running affiliate campaign promoting Clickbank through SEO.

    How about if you put some Clickbank products?
    For his estimated exact searches, how many actual traffic that you get to your website?

    What DamageX said is logical. That's why we can't post "keyword shit list". lol

    Not putting you down but if you can't get half good at researching keywords, you're going to have little chance of doing everything else you need to do in order to monitize any keywords that are researched for you.

    Keyword research isn't that complicated. There are tools which can cut down on the time/work dramatically but ultimatly you need to learn how to manually check a keyword to see if it's something you can make money off of. That's based on more than consumer intent and competitoin. You have to know various methods of monitizing, getting traffic, how to craft a good site or sales page and various other things.

    Really, there's far more to things like good link building, SEO, writing, layout design and other things than keyword research.

    Find a good tool or service to help you narrow down your focus but learn how to research keywords because no tool can do it all for you. Take a shot at buying some researched keywords but remember that without experience in this, how will you know if you're getting what you paid for?

    I see your point.
    That's the concern of my thread (this thread).

    I've no problem with the SEO system that I practiced, I ranked for my chosen keywords, they bring traffics but not sales.
