    I was hoping for something a bit meatier here

    Just got LTP and I’ve been playing with it the whole day. Can’t seem to find profitable keywords with less competition though!

    • It can definitely be challenging…hope you stuck it out and found one!

    It’s challenging at first. Try switching your focus to find brand name terms and target those with product reviews on your site. For example “long tail pro” is the name of a product and if you run through LTP, you’ll see it gets some monthly searches. Try coming up with a list of 50-100 unique brand name products and run them through LTP to see what you can find.

    I downloaded the trail of LTP and am playing around with it. If you don’t have the platinum version, can you slim down your keywords to say less then 500 google title competitions? How do you figure out which ones to target without the platinum version?

      Okay so one thing you could try is to use (free). Check the first, fifth and tenth result on page 1 looking at ‘page authority’. If the average page authority is less than 30 then it shouldn’t be too difficult to rank for. Try to find keywords that have an average page authority of 20 or less as they will be much easier to rank.

        I SO want to get my first Niche site up and running, but I need to find a profitable keyword first!

  • Long tail pro is one of the best keyword research tools. Every blogger should try it
