This method is very simple and straight forward. You can apply it to any niche, and I am sure you will find some good keywords that will bring you additional traffic. Tools: For this, you will need Ahrefs or Semrush subscription (you need paid one, if you are in bad situation, you can get them for $5 on fiverr, but don't expect them to last long) Also, I use SimilarWeb chrome extension (it's free), just to see if certain website is getting traffic. Introduction: Basically what are we going to do is find properties that generally are easy to outrank, plug them into one of the tools above and see what keywords are they ranking for. For this guide, I am going to be using Internet Marketing niche. Generally, properties that are easy to outrank are forums, q&a sites, video-audio-photo-whatever submission sites (youtube, vimeo, stock photo sites, slideshare) These type of sites often don't care about seo. Have you optimized posts you made on this forum? Of course you didn't, that's why it is easy to outrank keywords that forums rank for. Step by Step: Find these properties in your niche. My niche is IM, so for this example I am going to be using this forum, blackhatworld.com, as an example. Plug them into Ahrefs or Semrush. Click on Organic Keywords, it will come up with keywords that BHW is ranking for. Now we want to filter keywords that are worthy considering. Show only keywords ranking in positions 1-20 Sort keyword by traffic they bring to BHW (You can also sort by position, but sometimes forum is ranking 5# for higher volume keyword, which brings them more traffic than 1# for lower volume keyword) Go manually keyword by keyword. On this example, we obviously wont go for keyword ''blackhatworld'' because people searching for that are looking for this forum. Second keyword is ''alboraaq'' which is something related to carding, illegal stuff, so we won't go into it. Third keyword is ''subxcess'' which is some kind of social network community, we can easily break into first spots with article ''subxcess review'' and get some nice portion of traffic. I am sure we could go on and find dozens of nice and easy keywords. Additional tips: - This keywords are not commercial, so you won't make money just by them. But they are very easy to rank for, with good onpage optimization you can easily break into 1st page. Why they are good then? Well, if you for example have email list, you can get subscribers, they can purchase your product, they can read your other articles and click on your affiliate links. - Semrush has more options to filter keywords, you can also filter with results, less results, less competition. - Forums are not only weak sites, if there are no forums in your niche (which I doubt, you just need to search deep), there are youtube videos, web 2.0s, q&a sites... Be creative.
