So I thought of writing this post to help my readers in making money online by finding profitable, money making keywords.

But before we move ahead, I would like to give a brief introduction about types of keyword one can target, which type of keywords are best for SEO for beginners. There are three types of keywords :

  • Two Word Keywords
  • Long Tail Keywords
  • Money Making Keywords

1. Two Word Keywords :

While two word keywords are those which bring lots of traffic, but these are worst to target for a reason, have a look at below keywords and guess what may be the reason;

  1. Birthday Cards
  2. Credit Cards
  3. Blood Pressure
  4. Make Money

I hope you got the reason, if not then here is the reason :
These keywords are really profitable but competition is really very huge one cannot rank for this keywords in 2015 but some years back around 2002 ranking for this kind of keywords was too easy. So ranking for this keyword on 1st page of Google search engine is almost impossible and traffic from this keyword is also not targeted.

2. Long Tail Keywords :

Most of organic traffic came from long tail keywords to blogs and websites, this are the combination of 4-5 or more words in Google. Sometimes even this long tail keywords have no search volume or they attract wrong traffic according to Google Keyword Planner. That’s why one need to target on certain long tail keywords like :

Long Tail Keywords to target :

  • _______________ reviews
  • _______________ review
  • _______________ tutorials
  • best ____________
  • Top ____________
  • Latest ___________
  • ______________ tutorial
  • ETC

fill the blanks with the product, niche or topic you are targeting for.

3. Money Making Keywords :

This are the keywords which attract buyers who have credit cards in their hand, this are the best to target as if you attract those people who have buying potential surely you will make money. Some examples of money making keywords are :

Money Making Keywords to target :

  • _____________ buy
  • _____________ discount
  • _____________ purchase
  • _____________ trial
  • _____________ price
  • _____________ deal
  • _____________ sale
  • _____________ coupons
  • _____________ vouchers
  • ETC

fill the blanks with the product, niche or topic you are targeting for.

    Indeed a great post about keyword research.

    It is true that keyword research is the very 1st step to target the right traffic from search engines like Google. I have seen so many people who never does keyword research and always keep themselves busy in writing articles on different different random keywords which is not good.

    If We really want to get potential traffic which can converts easily then we must have to target the right keyword.

    For a productive work, every expert suggest to target long tail keywords with having low competition. Because long tail keywords with low competition are easily to rank rather than short tail high competitive keywords.

    I always use Google Keyword Planner to check the keyword search volume and Long Tail Pro for keyword competition score. I am glad that You have covered such an indepth article on keyword research.

    Thanks for sharing it with us. 😀
