Let me share with you all my review on the best amazon keyword generator for finding profitable buyer keywords I discovered called Amasuite 5.
If you are an affiliate marketer using amazon or even just an amazon seller or ebay seller this is the best keyword generator I have ever found.
If you are looking for profitable buyer keywords in any affiliate niche which will bring you traffic to your affiliate site from the search engines, you need this software. You can purchase it here.
What I like about this software is the developers give you two options on how to pay, you can either make one payment and then the software is yours for a lifetime, or you can pay in 4 instalments. So it has the option if you really cannot afford to make a one time payment, as it is quite an expensive software but worth every penny trust me….
The software is a full suite of products, but today I am going to focus on one in particular, the keyword generator.
The keyword generator software in this suite is I have to say one of the best keyword generators I have ever found, especially where Amazon affiliate marketing is concerned.
Unlike other keyword tools on the market which gives you lists and lists of keywords with just difficulty scores, this tool actually gives you the buyer keywords which will get you traffic, and yes from Google…
The software has built in algorithms which tells you the keywords, which will get you buyer traffic from all of the search engines and therefore you no longer have to sit and guess which keywords to go with from using other keyword tools.
How to get started with the amazon keyword generator
So here is what you need to do, head on over and make your purchase – you can purchase from here.
The software will work on both mac and pc.
Once you have purchased the software you will receive your login details to your email.
You then head on over to the login page on the site here – http://amasuite.com/members-login/ and login.
You will then be able to download the amazon keyword generator or whichever software from the suite you like on to your mac or pc.
This isn’t a cloud based program.
Once you have downloaded the keyword generator software on to your desktop go ahead and open the program up and you will have the below on your screen:
At The top where it says keyword generator click on this and you will then have the following:
On the left hand side you will see six data sources, tick the ones you want to use in your keyword research.
Once you have selected which sources to search, underneath where it says seed keywords (one per line) place some keywords in there – I usually enter up to 10 max.
For this tutorial I went with the food niche. I typed in chef hats and chef aprons:
Ensure you place one keyword only per line.
And then to run the software press the green play icon as pictured below:
What I love about this software is it’s like lightning, so so fast and it wont slow your laptop, pc or mac down.
While the software is running you will see two progress bars at the top of the screen, this is it extracting all of the keywords from all 6 sources.
The software will then finish up what it’s doing and reveal to you a list of keywords like below:
Which Keywords do i use from the Amazon Keyword Generator?
As you can see its provided alot of keywords, but how do i know which ones to use?
Well obviously the ones with 0 in red are no good, so the numbers in green and mustard colours are the ones which are excellent keywords for your site.
So if you are an amazon affiliate in the UK, any keywords in green under the amazon UK column you can use for your site.
This is a great tool for affiliate marketing…as based on all of the keywords in green you could write blog posts on each one of them to optimise your site. Or even if you have just a store, you can use them for category names etc. It is definately one software you should purchase.
Anyway, now that we have the keywords up I want the most powerful keywords out of them all for my niche site.
While it found 85 keywords for me, I don’t or won’t be using them all.
At the very end of the software you see score – this is really how to get the most powerful keywords, if you don’t want to focus on them all in green. See image below :
The software works using a scoring system of 1-100 (with 100 being the best).
If you click on the arrow underneath “score” it gives you the options of breaking down to the keywords with a score greater than 50 etc…which is what I like to use.
Anything 50 or more is a good option. You will also find with this software which I find interesting is that some keywords will be in green for Amazon UK and not for Amazon USA. This is also a good feature the software has, it just shows you there is some keywords more profitable than others on all amazon sites.
What I also like about this tool is you have the option to filter out keywords the ones with no traffic and the other ones you don’t want to use with a very little score :
You just click on that and it gives you the option to show only keywords from your list with a certain score.
What is also good about this software is you can save the keywords, all you do is click on the little save icon at the top and save it as whatever file format you wish, i usually save it as CSV.
So there you have it, i found alot of good potential buyer keywords like that just by using this software, there was no guess work involved and it didn’t take me long either. I wasn’t having to sit for hours and hours doing research.
Not only that, you can repeat the process over and over and over unlimited times with a whole load of different keywords for your niche.
I haven’t yet checked the rest of the products in the suite, but just this tool alone is worth the money. If the rest of the products are anything like this tool in the suite then I definitely recommend buying it.
Purchase the best amazon keyword generator software by clicking here or on the image below.
Thank you for your time!
I am going to show you how to find low competition keywords with high traffic really fast.
These keywords are so easy you can get a top rank without any backlinks at all.
The fastest and easiest way to rank no. 1 in the SERPs is to find long tail low seo competition keywords.
Who wants a bucket load of keywords that you can rank on page 1 of Google search without any backlinks at all?
Sounds awesome, right?
Well it is possible to find these keywords for free, however it can take a long time to do the research.
There is a tool that can do it for you. It’s not free, but you can evaluate your ROI and certainly make it pay for you.
This tool is cloud based, there is nothing to download. You just sign up and away you go.
The tool is called Long Tail Pro. It comes with a 7 day $1 trial, believe me, it is well worth giving a go.
I am going to show you how to use this great tool right now, I have been very impressed with it so far.
You can use this Long Tail Pro with one other seo tool to create a very powerful ranking strategy.
If you only get 2 tools in your seo arsenal, these are the ones that will make your affiliate/blogging life so much easier.
This is how these seo tools can help you out:
You can use long tail pro to find long tail low seo competition keywords in under 10 minutes. If the keywords have an seo competition score below 20 you can rank on the first page of Google without any backlinks at all.
Next is where the magic happens;
Then you power up the SEO Content machine software. Use it to create 30 unique articles in super fast time, won’t even take you 10 minutes.
Then use SEO Content machine to auto post that content to your Web 2.0 blogs. Drop 10 Web 2.0 backlinks per month over a 3 month period and your site will hit the top spot for sure.
Drop content on Web 2 sites that are already indexed and your rank will soar. Make sure you use the perfect anchor text ratio and you can’t fail.

With this strategy, your money site is getting new content on a regular basis, and it is getting backlinks slow and steady spread across the entire site on a steady flow.

This strategy provides the perfect balance for a one person ranking machine.
SEO Content Machine is $27 a month. Long Tail Pro is $37 a month.
For $64 a month you can certainly see a good return on this little investment.
Each tool is going to save you a lot of time and hassle.
I know it sounds a lot for anyone just starting out, but believe me, these tools are a game changer.
Keyword research is the most important aspect of SEO, long tail pro will make you an expert right away.
Let’s dive right in there are take a look at how long tail pro works;
How to Find Low Competition Keywords with High Traffic
I am going to use Long Tail Pro to find a long tail keyword to rank this post for. I am not going to build any backlinks to this page. This way you can see the power of this software and how important it is to find low competition long tail keywords.
Like I say, the software does not need to be downloaded, it is cloud based. You sign up, log in, and away you go.
This is how you find low seo competition long tail keywords:
First of all, log into your Long Tail pro account.
Let’s start a new project. Enter your project name and hit the “Add Project” button.
Select which search engine you want to rank on, I have selected Google.com. Then select the language you want to work in.
You can also add your money site domain name. This will give you a customised competition analysis with metrics, so it is worth doing.
Now for the fun part. Let’s find some easy to rank long tail keywords.
Now enter a seed keyword. Then select the number of results that you require per keyword, I have selected “100” returns per keyword.
I have also set the minimum number of monthly searches to “100”.
Then hit the “Retrieve Adwords Suggestions” button.
Now I hear you shouting, “why don’t I just use Adwords keyword planner, it’s free”. Well it will not give you the return on long tail keywords that Long Tail Pro can, Adwords always holds out on you. Also, Adwords does not have an seo competition score analysis, which is very important.
I should also mention that you do not need to do anything else to this software, no proxies, it does not even have to be linked with your Adwords account. The tool is ready to use right away, nothing else to do, and it is very easy to use too.
Simply scroll down to view the keyword results. It will take a few minutes to generate them.
The next part is fun, you are going to filter the keywords to find a ranking gem.
I used the filter to display all keywords with 3 words or more in them.
Then I clicked on the “Avg. KC” tab, this displays the low seo competition score keywords at the top of the list.
To get the keywords with high traffic click on the “Volume” tab. Then look at the “Avg. KC” column to find high traffic keywords with low seo competition.
The keyword results show:
- list of long tail keywords
- an option to add a keyword to your favourites list
- monthly search volume
- cost per click to advertise for this keyword (important for keyword value when using Adsense to monetise your money site)
- advertiser competition score
- number of words in the keyword
- rank value (calculated on Adwords cost per click. Of course this will be different if you choose to monetise your site with Amazon or ClickBank links) Go here to learn how to calculate the monetary value of your keyword.
- keyword seo competition score
As you can see, “long tail pro discount” has a very low seo competition score of 20.
Also, “long tail pro review” has a low seo competition score of 27.
Both keywords get around 110 searches per month. They are not going to drive massive amounts of traffic to a site, but it is an easy way to rank, a way to start pushing some traffic to a site.
A good seo strategy is to add lots of valuable content to a site focused around easy to rank long tail keywords.
Lots of content like this will bring in a significant amount of traffic, it will generate some nice commission cheques in the right niche.
After you have decided on a long tail keyword you can drill further into the metrics to help you decide if you can rank number one for it.
This is how you do it;
Click on the keyword to see the top 10 ranked sites for that keyword. This will help you understand if you can rank for the keyword or not.
Now you can see a whole load of seo metrics to evaluate the top ranking sites.
Each site has an seo competition score, you can even see how many internal and external backlinks each site has.
The entire list of metrics include;
- seo competition score
- domain seo competition score
- trust flow
- citation flow
- number of external backlinks
- number in internal links
- site age
- number of URLs the site has indexed
Within the list you can also see the TITLE TAG and URL extension of the page. This is incredibly important.
If you can find a keyword where none of the top ranking sites have the exact long tail keyword in the TITLE TAG or URL extension you are sure it is easy to rank for.
For the keyword “long tail pro review” five of the top 10 ranking sites have the exact keyword in the TITLE TAG. I am most definitely not going to after this keyword.
I will do some more research to find an easy to rank keyword to use for this particular post.
Click on the blue spy glass button (circled red) to find even more long tail keywords.
The keyword I have decided on for this post is “how to find low competition keywords with high traffic”. This keyword has an seo competition score of 28, there are sites ranking on the first page of Google for this keyword with very few backlinks.
All I need to do to rank on the first page of Google search for long tail keywords like these is to make sure the keyword is in the page TITLE TAG and URL.
Combine this with some decent content and a few backlinks as suggested earlier and you are set to hit the top spot.
Imagine how much money you can earn through Amazon affiliate commissions by using Long Tail Pro as your keyword research tool.
Yes you can find these keywords without Long Tail Pro, however it is going to take you a lot longer. Long Tail Pro is a massive time saver for me.
It is well worth giving a try at $1 for 7 days, if you don’t like it then cancel your subscription. In 7 days you can find a serious amount of low seo competition score keywords for your niche, you are going to get a good return on your $1.
What else can Long Tail Pro do?
The video below explains a little more about what Long Tail Pro can do for you:
I have absolutely no doubt that you can make the monthly fee pay for itself.
The tool is certainly going to help you find an easy to rank niche many times over.
Watch me find a new Amazon niche that looks promising in a few minutes;
First go to keyword.io and do an Amazon keyword search.
Select a “best” keyword from the list.
I will pick one of the results at random; “glucosamine treats for dogs”. Now enter that seed word into Long Tail Pro.
In less than 10 minutes I have found a new niche. If you spend a few hours on this you can find a highly profitable niche that you can rank no. 1 for with hardly any backlinks at all.
In a few minutes I have found “best glucosamine for dogs”. It gets a whopping 880 monthly searches and has a low keyword competition score of 29.
I found this keyword at random in a few minutes. If you take your time to use the software you can find some real money making keywords.
I will select another keyword at random from the keyword.io tool to analyse using Long Tail Pro.
Let’s go for “humidifier”. Pop that seed keyword into Long Tail Pro.
Within a few minutes I now know that “electronic cigar humidifier” is a decent long tail keyword within that particular niche. The results also reveal that there are very few long tail keywords in that niche, it is not one that I would be looking to go into.
I think you can probably tell how incredibly useful Long Tail Pro is going to be to you.
The free way to do this kind of keyword research would be to use these 3 tools;
To generate lots of long tail keywords go to answerthepublic.com. This will generate lots of long tail search phrases that you can use to get actual Google search terms using the serps.com keyword tool.
You can use the serps.com keyword research tool for keyword search volume data.
Then you can use spyfu.com for seo competition analysis.
Of course you will use keyword.io as mentioned earlier for niche selection.
Long Tail Pro does all of the above in one, the seo competition score is very useful. Keywords that I currently target with a Long Tail Pro seo score below 20 will rank in the top ten of Google SERPs without any backlinks at all.
Not only does it show you how to find low competition keywords with high traffic but also reveals their monetary value.
Why is Long Tail Pro the best keyword research tool:
Long Tail Pro generates keyword competition score on auto pilot for all keywords in the list. You do not need to press a button to generate an seo competition score for each keyword individually. This is going to save you a lot of time.
Many other keyword research tools require you to select an individual keyword for analysis to reveal the keyword seo competition score, which gets rather tedious in the long run. Long Tail Pro does not require you to do this.
Compared to others on the market it is very reasonably priced, you are certainly going to be able to bring a good return on this little investment. Find one niche with lots of low seo competition keywords and you are laughing all the way to the bank.
If you already have a niche site then it is worth giving Long Tail Pro a $1 trial for 7 days, if anything you are going to find a hell of a lot of information about your niche that is certainly worth a lot more than $1.
If you do decide to give it a go drop me a comment or 2 below to let me and others know how you found it.
Is this the best keyword research tool for affiliate marketers? I think so 🙂
Feel The Power of Long Tail Keywords
Just a quick update to really help you understand the power of long tail keywords.
I published this post yesterday on 28 November 2016. Today 29 November 2016 the page is ranked number 5 on Google search.
This page has got a first page Google ranking in just 1 day targeting a long tail keyword without any backlinks at all.
The keyword has an seo competition score of 28, I believe you can rank and get traffic without backlinks. Keyword research is very important.
Long tail keywords are a great way to start to get traffic to a site, and most importantly start making some money.
Do not underestimate the power of long tail keywords, do not dismiss them just because they have low search volume.
Keywords like this are very easy to rank for, if you blog everyday it is a super easy way to get some traffic flowing.
I have been asked over and over recently how to check if your keyword is easy to rank number 1 for.
I am going to show you how to:
- Find out if you have a money making keyword
- Add diversity to the SERPs for top ranking
- Find out if your keyword is easy to rank no. 1 in Google Search
I am going develop a keyword competition check list for you.
If you can tick any part of the check list then you have yourself a keyword that is not so easy to rank at the top of Google search.
Keyword selection is the most important part of any project.
Get it wrong and it can be incredibly frustrating.
Get it right and you will be smiling from ear to ear making a great passive revenue stream.
There is no point in spending 3 months trying to rank a particular keyword only to fail horribly.
You need to go into a project confident that you can rank number 1 for your selected keyword.
Do not miss any of these steps.
I am going to select a random keyword and then show you how to asses the competition.
Selected keyword to asses is: “best carry on backpack”
Number of USA Google monthly searches: 1,600
If you want to know how to find kewords using free tools just check out the videobelow:
Do You Have A Money Making Keyword?
We need to find out how much money we can make from our keyword.
There is no point in spending 3 months ranking a site no. 1 if you are going to make very little money from it.
Before we analyse the keyword competition we need to make sure that you are going to make some money when you rank no. 1 in Google search.
We know that my selected keyword gets 1600 searches, but what percentage of people searching for this keyword click on the top search result?
Well this all depends on your CTR, but to play this calculation on the safe side we are going to go with 33%.
According to searchenginewatch.com 33% of the traffic goes to the top Google listing, of course it could well be a whole lot higher for your site.
So lets calculate how many people will actually visit my site if I ranked no. 1:
1600 x 0.33 = 528
Now we can calculate how much money our keyword will make us each and every month.
You will know your conversion rate. My Amazon conversion is always over 5% no matter what time of year it is.
Of course how much money you make all depends on how you monetise your site.
For this example I will use Amazon, you can enter your own figures to determine the monetary value of your selected keyword.
Lets calculate how many people will make a sale:
528 x 0.05 = 26
Let’s calculate how much money we will make from these 26 sales.
Carry on backpacks cost roughly around $40. Of course there are much cheaper ones and much more expensive ones. You need to make an estimate here.
I know I will get at least 4% from Amazon for every sale. How much do I get per sale:
40 x 0.04 = 1.6
Here is the most important number. How much your keyword is worth on a monthly basis:
1.6 x 26 = $41.60
Of course this is a rough estimate.
This is a way to know if you really should chase a particular keyword top ranking.
Do this step before you analyse the keyword competition, saves you loads of time.
Now you need to decide if it is worth your time ranking a keyword for the monetary gains we have just calculated.
Only you can decide upon that. This will be different for evey one out there.
$41.60 is not enough for me, no matter how easy it was to rank for this keyword.
I would then bin this keyword and take a look at another.
If you can’t find a keyword that is going to make you a large profit from Amazon products then go ahead and try Click Bank.
Click Bank give you higher commission rates, you will make more money from less monthly searches this way.
Keep in mind, if the keyword is fairly easy to rank no. 1, it is going to take you 3 months to do using the web 2.0 backlinks no. 1 ranking strategy.
Using the expired web 2 backlinks strategy the first month is roughly about 4 hours backlink building work.
In the second month it is around 7 hours work.
In month three it is about 5 hours work.
Over 3 months to rank no. 1 for this particular keyword it is going to take roughly 16 to 20 hours work.
Ask yourself; is $41.60 every month worth 16 hours work?
When you find a keyword that will give you a good monetary return for your backlink time investment you can move onto the next step.
Now Google search your keyword.
Are You Adding Diversity To The SERPs?
After you Google your selected keyword ask yourself;
Can I add something new here?
For example, Google loves diversity in it’s results pages.
If any of the top ten sites have the exact match keyword in their TITLE, DESCRIPTION and URL then bin the keyword and move onto the next one.
You need to be the only site there with the exact match keyword in your title for diversity. This is why I always target long tail keywords, they make this step a whole lot easier.
Also, are you adding an affiliate review site. How many already exist in the top 10?
If you have 2 or more then bin the keyword.
Or consider adding something different in there, go for an e-commerce affiliate store using Prosociate. I have used this WordPress Plugin myself and I can vouch for it.
If you can’t add diversity to the SERPs then bin the keyword and start the process over again.
Yes it is time consuming, but it is well worth the effort.
When you find a keyword that makes $1500 a month and is easy to rank you are laughing.
So take your time to do it right.
The more research you do in the beginning the more confident you will be at making a success of your project.
Never go in there blind, you are asking to fail and in most cases will.
Some might be lucky, but you will never be able to do the same thing again.
This way you can rank sites over and over making money online with ease.
Well it’s not that easy, finding a good keyword can take days, but that time is well worth it.
Take it from me, doing your research first will save you a lot of stress and heart ache in the end.
It might seem like a long boring task, but if you keep focused on the money and what you want to achieve then you will get there.
So write down a figure that you would like to earn from a particular keyword and then get cracking finding one.
You should now have a profitable keyword.
Now let’s find out if your keyword is easy to rank no. 1 for.
This is what we need to be looking for.
You need to run this check list over the top ranking sites for your selected keyword.
Of course if you only run this check list over one site, do it on the no. 1 ranked site for your selected keyword.
Easy Keyword Checklist
#1 Does the exact match keyword appear anywhere in the URL (even sub domain).
#2 Is any part of the keyword at the beginning of the domain name.
#3 Is the exact keyword in the TITLE TAG. (it’s more powerful at the beginning)

I Will Run This Check list Over My Selected Keyword
Pop the keyword into Google Search (make sure it is for the country you are targeting eg Google.com or Google.co.uk) “best carry on backpack”
For this tutorial I am using Google.com.
#1 One site, the top ranked site has the exact match keyword in the URL. I would not pursue this keyword any further. But for the purpose of this tutorial I am going to finish all the steps for you.
#2 Not one of the sites have the keyword at the beginning of their domain name. If I was to go ahead with this keyword I have found a weakness that I could exploit to try and out rank the top sites. I would buy a domain like backpackcarry.com or carryonpackpack.com.
#3 Just the top ranking site has the exact match keyword in the TITLE TAG. If you start your TITLE TAG with your exact match keyword it is more powerful. I would not target this keyword because if I used the exact match keyword at the start of the TITLE TAG it would appear too much like the top ranked site, this would not add diversity to the search results. Keep the word “DIVERSITY” at the front of your mind when performing this step.
#4 Just one site (ranked no. 10) has the exact match keyword in the DESCRIPTION TAG. This is not a massive ranking factor, but you are much more certain to rank no. 1 if you are the only site that has the exact match keyword in the site description area.
Remember you are looking for a weakness in SERPs that you can exploit.
#5 Now it is time to visit some of the top ranking sites. Do they have the exact match keyword in their main heading. If no sites do, then you can be certain that you can rank no. 1 for your selected keyword. The top ranked site in this case does have the exact match keyword in the H1 TAG. I would not waste my time trying to outrank this guy when the monetary return is so low for this selected keyword.
#6 The top ranking site is well optimised for my selected keyword. It does have the keyword mentioned at the top of the content, somewhere in the middle and at the end too. I would have ditched this keyword ages ago, but I will continue with this process for you to see how simple it is to pick out easy to rank keywords.
#7 As you can see from the image above, the top ranking site has the exact match keyword near the top of the content. He has optimised the page perfectly for this keyword.
#8 The top ranking site has well over 2000 words on the page and would certainly take some beating. The content is not thin at all. We are looking for thin content, preferably under 1000 words. The site sitting in spot 2 has lots of quality content too, I would certainly not target this keyword.
#9 The top ranked site does have bullet points and lists within the content. I could outrank this site with fresh content, but it would take a lot of hard work and some very good powerful backlinks. I would most definitely not pick up this keyword, it would be a waste of my time.
#10 Take a look at the top ranked sites source code. If you are in Chrome, go to Tools and then View Source. Then look for the ALT Tag on the images, do they have the exact keyword in there? The top site does not have it on page anywhere, this is one small thing that this webmaster could improve on. It’s such a small ranking signal that it’s not something I would use to try and out rank him, although we have found a small weakness on the top site here.
#11 The top ranking site for my selected keyword does link out to an authority site with related content. It actually links out to a wikipedia page, which most SEOs do these days to add some authority to their content. You can certainly see why this site ranks no. 1, everything has been optimised to perfection, apart from the ALT Tags of course.
#12 The top ranking sites are loaded with content. We are not just talking about the page we are trying to out rank, I mean does the site have a lot of pages loaded with content on there? The top ranked site does for my keyword, it would take a while to catch up with this guy, it would not be a good time investment at all for me to take on.
#13 The top sites have loads of images within their content. This is something I would not be able to compete with.
#14 The top ranking site is well optimised with media, it has lots of images and useful videos on there.
#15 The top ranking sites have short and concise URLs, you know what the page is about even within the short URL. The top ranked site has been optimised really well for a top ranking spot. As you can see in the image below, the site sitting in spot no. 5 has long URL, this is what you are trying to avoid if you want to out rank them.
#16 The top ranking site does not have a really high DA, it is possible to achieve a DA 17 in a few months. The problem is that the page that sits in the top spot has a PA of 17 that is close to the DA 17 homepage. The site architecture has been cleverly thought out, keeping the content with the keywords that you want to rank no. 1 for close to the homepage, just one level up. You need MozBar to check a sites DA and PA.
#17 Now it’s time to check the top ranking sites backlinks. This part is very important, if I was going to out rank the top ranked site I would need to improve on the content and then would need more backlinks of greater quality, preferably contextual backlinks.
MozBar shows that the top ranking site has just 3 backlinks, the site in spot no. 2 has zero backlinks. The problem with using MozBar alone is that it does not pick up on all backlinks. So I like to use SEO SpyGlass for the section too.
You can visit each of the sites that backlink to the top ranking site and check whether they have different C-CLASS IPs using this tool.
You could also use monitorbacklinks.com to check C-CLASS IPs, which is free to use too.
As we can see, the top ranking site has 127 backlinks from 24 domains and 17 C-CLASS IPs, which is not so good. I could out rank this site if I wanted to. But it’s not worth my time, I would look for an easier keyword.
We then need to take a look at the sites that backlink to the top ranking site.
#18 In MonitorBacklinks.com click on the sites that backlink to the top ranking site. Are the backlinks within the content, from comments or even in the side bar. Does the site look like a real site, or a PBN site? Use MozBar to check the links that point to the sites and also to check PA and DA, all of this passes on ranking juice.
If the site that backlinks to the site that you want to out rank has lots of backlinks too, these backlinks will all pass on ranking juice the top ranking site, improving their search ranking. You need to look at all the backlinks down the chain. The more backlinks that you find, the harder it is going to be for you to out rank them.
I can see right away that the backlinks are not very good, the anchor text used does not match the keyword. I could out rank this site with some decent free backlinks alone.
#19 Take a look at all the sites that backlink to the top ranking site, is there a diverse set of backlinks from comments, backlinks within content etc. The top ranking site does have contextual and backlinks from comments and other sources. It is possible to out rank this site, my do it yourself seo guide would see to that.
#20 Take a look at the content on the sites that backlink to the top sites. Is the content thin? Does the backlink come from within the top of the content or further down the page? The content on the sites that backlink to the top site for my selected keyword is very thin and the backlinks are at the bottom of the page. This could be out done for sure.
#21 Now you need to asses if the backlink comes from a page with related content to the top ranking site. Is the keyword in the main heading? A backlink from a page with the exact match keyword in the H1 Tag will be very powerful. The top site for my selected keyword does not have backlinks from any page with the keyword within the H1 Tag.
#22 Check the DA and PA of the sites that backlink to the top ranking sites. The top ranked site for my selected keyword has a backlink from a PA 16 and DA 40 with one backlink pointing to it. The backlink is contextual, it is a pretty good backlink. The question is – Can you beat the quality of the backlinks that point to the top ranking sites.
#23 The sites that backlink to the top ranking site for my selected keyword are contextual. It is possible to match and get more backlinks than this.
#24 The content where the backlinks sit is not that long. I would be able to get better backlinks from more C-Class Ip’s from related and longer articles for sure. Is this keyword worth my time, absolutely not.
#25 You can check the anchor text of the backlinks using SEO SpyGlass and Monitor Backlinks. Is it mixed up, if not you have found a weakness that you can exploit.
#26 Not one of the top ranking sites have an SSL certificate. It is a small ranking factor that will give you a boost up the SERPs if you have one.
#27 You can use MozBar again to check social signals of the top ranking sites. The top ranking site has zero Facebook and zero Google Plus social shares. I could certainly out do this little ranking factor with a simple SEO Clerks social signals gig. You could also use http://buttonspace.com/ to check a sites social signals quick and easy.
#28 The top ranking site has zero comments, this is something that I could improve on if I had decided to go ahead and choose to rank this keyword. A site with a lot of comments means visitors are engaging with the content, this is a small Google ranking factor.
#29 Take a look at every site. Are the Google SERPs diverse. Are you adding another Amazon affiliate site? The top ranking site for my selected keyword is an Amazon Affiliate site, I would not bother adding another. Diversity in the SERPs is what Google needs to achieve. Adding more affiliate sites to an already saturated market is a bad idea, you are certain to lose.
If you are going to add an affiliate site make sure there isn’t any already in the top 10 rankings. If there is, then go down another avenue, add something unique and new to the SERPs.
