How affiliates that make money online by using powerful keywords

So how do affiliates that make money online become so successful and put so much money in their pockets by using powerful keyword phrases.

Well they do some old fashioned research. So lets start from the beginning.
An Affiliate is someone who sells a product owned by another company and earns commissions based on the sales made.

The affiliate should be focused on two things – a product with a good conversion rate (say 5%) and driving traffic to that product offer. I will focus here on driving traffic.

To confirm affiliates that make money online are fully aware of this starting point
To drive traffic the affiliate needs to find certain keywords which are used by people on the internet to search for that particular subject. Lets use the example of “hiking” as a keyword that someone could use.

So you as the affiliate would need to go to a search engine and search for “keyword tool”. Once you reach the keyword tool you would type in “hiking” into the tool and you will be presented with a big list of keyword phases that the public who are interested in hiking would use. In addition you would be presented with the number of times the keyword term was used on a monthly basis. In other words the internet traffic that was associated with that term. You would then cut and paste at least 100 keyword terms with their associated traffic volumes into a spreadsheet.

So you have the traffic figures for 100 keyword terms. The next step would be to search each one of these terms in a search engine making sure you put the term in exclaimation marks like “hiking”. The search engine will present the number of websites that are listed for this term. You then write the number of websites for that keyword term in your spreadsheet adjacent to your traffic figure for that term.
So you now have the traffic figure (the potential traffic) and the number of web sites (your competition) for 100 keyword terms. So you are looking for keyword terms that have the highest traffic but the lowest competition. So perform a calculation for each keyword term so that

Monthly Traffic figure / Number of websites X 100 = ????

If you get a figure 20 or over that is a very good keyword term to use. If you get a figure over 100 it should be classed as a gold mine and used straight away. Affiliates that make money online are good at finding high value keywords as described above

Now you have the keywords you should be targeting so you can write articles with your keyword terms in the title and 3 to 4 times in the content to get a good listing in the search engines.

So now you can become one of the affiliates that make money online as your articles will rank highly in the search engines, so people will read your articles, click on your links and banners to your affiliate product and buy your product.

So go out there and get your keywords and start earning some well earned money.
