    Hello Everyone,
    I want to make sure I have the concept right before I spend anything registering domains.

    I found a long-tail keyword that has about 60k global monthly searches according to google and they show it as low competition. Traffic Travis shows it as "relatively easy" to rank for. I have found a cpa offer that is a perfect fit for the keywords and I can get an exact match .net.

    So is it as simple as making a site, posting some articles with links to the corresponding cpa offer, seo to get rank and just wait?

    I also make sites myself in dreamweaver, but would it be easier and better for seo to just throw up a wordpress site?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Did you make sure that when you found the keyword you chose the 'exact' search option on the left hand side instead of broad?

    If that is the case then go ahead and start with creating the site, wordpress should be fine, it will be quicker and the SEO is good enough with out over complicating things in Dreamweaver.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Make sure you are looking for Exact search

    I'm guessing he didn't have the Exact ticked, 60k is pretty high.

    Also you should check the demographics of the search. A lot of CPA offers are only targeted toward some country, so before you purchase the domain make sure you have offers that cater toward that niche that the domain is about in multiple countries. [ Unless the demographics show most the traffic is from one area ]

    Sure it sounds simple... throwing up a tidy site live is a no brainer. the "seo to get rank and just wait" part is where the fun begins. I wish you luck, we´re here to help if you need anything else.

    I didn't mean to make it sound simple, I just wanted to verify I had the major steps down. I don't want to ask a bunch of questions right out the gate and get the dreaded "noob use the search button" replies :).

    The method you wrote in one sentence will be a long long journey from start to page one sir :)

    1600 Is pretty low, I only target KWs that are over 3K but is it a strong kw? Like "buy KW" or "KW reviews" or if its a product like "make model"? If so they it might be worth puttin a little time and money into.

    Not really its more of a "how to ****** *******", the cpa product I found is actually pretty decent, I might just try it anyways to get my feet wet, worst case I'm out like $20 and some time.

    So when you find some thing glittering, make sure, double and triple sure that it is indeed Gold. :)

    P.S.: But sometimes when it is a long-tailed KW Exact, even though it has low numbers it can give you a very high conversion -- provided it is really targeted and a buyer keyword.

    Make a pre- and post- Guideline / Checklist and refer to it when you do KW research and go through it once again or twice again before you begin jumping... it is always the case of forgetting the basics when you have 100s of rows and tens of columns filled with very revealing numbers in front of you.

    With time and experience, you'll always have a well-trained brain to replace the checklist, but mind you, even then the
    fully-trained professional will still go through the rigorous practice of making sure that everything is still ticked off. Of course, it will be much faster than earlier.

    HTH:)

    I'm also a noob here and I hope you don't mind me hijacking since the question is related.

    You guys said that yeah, it's about putting up a site. But can you confirm that it's then about putting out fresh articles and putting in the cpa offer affiliate link?

    Where does cloaking comes in? I've been spending hours today trying to understand the concept of cloaking and how to/why do it.
