It Seems To Be Controversial
I’ve heard from various sources the best way to ramp up your affiliate marketing business is to use the keyword phrases section of your Awsats tool inside your hosting Cpanel application. I’ve heard the quickest way to get good post content up is to take the phrases people are using to find you and simply write content based on these keywords.
Sounds pretty simple right?
Now, I admit at times to overanalyzing things until I smack myseldf in the head and realize what else I could be doing that might be more productive and lucrative. However, I also believe that as long as you don’t go all the way to “analysis paralysis” with this you should still take at least one or two more steps before writing that content. Let me explain.
Do You Want To Rank For Those Keywords?
Obviously, if people are using nonsense terms that somehow get them to your site you want to throw those out as even possibles. Beyond that, looking at the top five results in Awstats you want to look at them a little closer. Are all five of those keyword phrases relevant to your blog or site’s main purpose defined by your main keyword phrases?
If so, take a quick look at the google keyword tool and see how many searches each of them gets. Be sure to check both broad and exact to be sure that phrase really does have traffic.
Can You Improve Your Ranking For Them?
If they do have reasonable traffic I would next check to see where you rank for them now and what the SEO competition is like. Market Samurai has great tools to do both of these things quickly and you can download a trial copy now for free. You may find that you rank somewhere on the first page for a term but that the competition is so stiff you won’t be able to move up at all with one post or even twenty.
Do this for each of the terms. Once you’ve identified at least three of these terms that targets a problem your niche is interested in, has sufficient traffic to warrant a post and that you have a good chance of ranking for write them down. If you use WordPress, I would recommend making drafts using the keywords in the title so you remember them for your research phase.
