    Hey Black Hatters, I need a suggestion from y'all. I have found a niche that has lots of easy to rank Keywords. I have so far found 25 and I can expect around 3 times more. There is no doubt some good traffic can be raked in if things are done correctly. But, the problem is the products that fall in this niche are between $5 to $100 range. Majority of the products are around $25.

    Do you guys suggest going after this?

    Worth trying the niche. Once again check the KW , before starting for buyer intent.

    I don't have much experience with Amazon Affiliates, but if the keywords are easy to rank for and you could get everything set up in a reasonable amount of time, then you can always combine Amazon Affiliates with another ad network to generate additional revenue from the same site if you don't get much from Amazon.

    I would suggest trying it. I think that it sounds like a pretty decent idea. Good luck to you and let us know how you did. Or perhaps you can start a journey with it :)

    Go for it if you think you can rank a good amount of keywords. Like someone else said above, try joining another affiliate program so you don't put all your eggs in one basket.

    If you've found a good niche it's worth making SEO optimized site for it anyway. How to monetize is a different issue. It can be Amazon or anything else.

    Start a journey to keep you motivated. And that doesn't seem like bad stats for a first time. Give it a shot. You either win or you learn.

    If what you're saying is true and the volume is truly there, I would say go for it.

    It would seem that even if the products would fall between the five to one hundred dollars range, this relatively low affiliate income threshold can be offset by the volume of sales you can
    generate off a high-volume site.

    Also, if I'm reading your post correctly, it would seem fairly easy to rank for this website.

    This means there is not that much competition.

    Ideally, we'd all like to hit a niche that has high commercial value, low competition and has a high search volume.

    The fact that your keyword collection has two of these three elements is definitely a great start.

    You can't expect a perfect situation.

    you're not going to make much at that kind of product price, however... if you can set the site up and rank it quickly and cheaply I'm sure it will be worth it long term.
