    Hi Guys,

    I joined a couple of weeks back and I'm quite drunk with information. It is absolutely brilliant to see such an open community. Kudos to you all for helping people in making positive changes to their lives.

    After reading quite a bit I've decided to try my hands on an Amazon affiliate website. It might seem pedestrian to the more experienced Imers here, however I'm very scared. I don't want to make a mother of all mistake and get dejected. Though, I understand that unless I try I would never know.

    I've been trying to get a hang of KW research over the last 3-4 days after reading the numerous guides that the community here has so magnanimously and painstakingly provided. However, I'm not really sure if the KWs I'm looking at are any good.

    I would request some help/insight on what you guys think of these KWs as I'm as green as they come.

    *the monthly searches numbers are from Google KW tool, I know it doesn't give an EMS anymore, however I was hoping it would still give a 'ballpark'

    1. KW1 Searches 900 (as per the Google research tool)
    KW1 Google search results- 2 million - "KW1" (in quotes, Google search results)- 6K allintitle:KW1 = 350, allinurl:KW1 = 300

    2. KW2 Searches 1300
    KW2 Google search results- 16 million - "KW2" (in quotes, Google search results)- 9K allintitle:KW2 = 1000 allinurl:KW2 = 500

    3. KW3 Searches 1600
    KW3 Google search results- 700K - "KW3" (in quotes, Google search results)- 3.5K allintitle:KW3 = 300, allinurl:KW3 = 800

    4. KW4 Searches 1600
    KW4 Google search results- 4 million - "KW4" (in quotes, Google search results)- 12K allintitle:KW4 = 1000, allinurl:KW4 = 900

    5. KW5 Searches 3600
    KW5 Google search results- 52 million - "KW5" (in quotes, Google search results)- 18K allintitle:KW5 = 1400, allinurl:KW5 = 1200

    All the 5 KWs are in the same niche and I plan to make a website using all 5.

    The KWs are semi long tail/long tail (3-4 words) like best xysblah review etc

    Google searches for these KWs throws up a number of ecommerce sites like ebay/amazon/best buy etc in the top 5-6 and then you have a couple of affiliate sites

    The goal is to make $200/month with my first website. I know it is not a lot but it will reinforce my belief that IM works.

    What do you guys think of the KWs? Do they look any good?

    They look good and doable. As long as they are buying keywords, that should be good to go. Looking at your comments that there are other affiliate sites, then looking pretty good.

    Google Keyword Planner now only gives EMS, so the volume above are EMS.
