A Little Bit About this Episode:

If there is one thing that can help improve your chances of success in online business—specifically affiliate marketing or niche marketing—it's learning how to conduct proper keyword research.


Because when you target keywords with low competition you are able to rank on Google so much easier than if you were to target highly searched terms and have to drive a ton of backlinks just to start hitting page TWO.

No thanks!

In fact, if you can find the right keywords, you can rank on Google without having to drive many backlinks at all. I know, talk about a dream scenario!

In this episode we are dishing our 3 tricks to finding profitable keywords so you can start ranking straight away and making money from your website. Click play or download your transcript to find out what they are!

  • I know google made some changes to their keyword tool. I wonder if it’s still useful or if most people are using Long Tail Pro?

    • Jill

      I still use Google keyword tool for some things but if we really want to drill down to the hardcore keywords we use Long Tail.

      Also, at first I hated the Google keyword tool change up but if you get used to it, it’s pretty much the exact same as before…just a slightly different layout 🙂

    Hi Guys,

    You both look awesome! Jill I love your hair and I want those shades, please tell me you paid a dollar for them in Chiang Mai:)

    Thanks for this information, I was doing some reading on seo this morning, again you guys always come on time.

    I haven’t started seo yet, so these are some great tips, I especially love tip #1. I think this can also work great with trying to break down a niche as well.

    Love the video bloopers!

      Hahaha pretty much…although I’m sure they were 100 bhat ($3) because everything seems to be 100 bhat around these parts! lol

      And I’m thrilled to hear you got some use out of the video. As for SEO, while it’s important to find your profitable keywords, it’s also important to start driving links to each of those pages to get you ranking in the search engines and get your site making money. The main way we do this is guest blogging.

      Speaking of which I just shot a whole video full of tips with Carrie from Female Entrepreneur Association that might help you out. You can check it out here –> http://femaleentrepreneurassociation.com/2013/09/5-steps-to-guest-blogging-free-workbook-challenge-printable/

      Also, we have a bunch of other stuff coming on guest blogging and SEO if you are interested in checking that out 🙂

      Hope that all helps!

  • Excellent work guys! I’m loving the Screw Q’s. I just finished up watching the Longtail Pro tutorial as well and it’s now high on my list of things to invest in in the near future. Keep up the good work!
