How To Find Profitable Keywords!

howtofindlowcompetitionkeywordKeywords are vital to being successful online. They are how your visitors find you! But not all keywords are the same. Some get searched more, some less. I’m going to show you how to find profitable keywords (with low competition) using 4 different kinds of methods, and they are all completely free. I have used these exact same methods (And still do) to have websites get 100’s and even 1,000’s of visitors monthly and even weekly.

Note: If you already know what keywords are and what their importance is, skip ahead to the “How To Find Competition For A Keyword & Using 4 Free Methods ” section below.

 First, let me explain what the heck a keyword is!

A keyword is ANY search term a person or persons type into Google, Bing, Yahoo or any other search engines when they are looking for something.

  • Become a leader
  • How to lose weight fast
  • How to train your dog to sit
  • How to breakup/make up with your girlfriend/boyfriend
  • How to make a pizza
  • Price of a PlayStation 4
  • What does Barrack Obama do on his free time?
  • How to make honest money on the internet (;))

Every term I just typed above is a keyword! There are literally ENDLESS amounts of keywords out there on the internet. But what we’re looking to do when it comes to making money on the internet is to:

1. Find specific ones where we can profit off them.

2. Find ones which have a lot of traffic (high search density) & low competition.

Allow me to elaborate…

1. Find specific ones where we can profit off them:

Certain keywords get tons of searches. The keyword “how to lose weight” is typed into Google millions of times, monthly! Other keywords such as “Train dog to sit” also gets a lot of searches, probably not as much as the first one, but it’s still a lot.

In order to make money online, we need to find specific keywords rather than vague ones. The more specific a keyword, the better chances of making money.


Weight loss is WAY too vague of a keyword. Here’s a better option: Weight loss for women over 40.

Exercise and diets is also too vague. Here’s a better option: Exercise and diets for diabetics.

Dog training is too vague. Here’s a better option: How to train your dog to sit.

See how each keyword is SO much more specific? Plus with a specific keyword comes my second point…

2. Find ones which have a lot of traffic (high search density) & low competition.

Keywords which are more specific have far less competition (other pages competing for the same keyword) than broad keywords do.

The keyword “weight loss” has millions of competing pages. “Weight loss for women over 40” has FAR less than that!

Why is it important to have little competition when searching for keywords? Because little competition means your website has a HIGH chance of ranking on the first page of the search term.

And that means you get the MOST amount of traffic possible. How much? How about 90%+? Yep that’s how much traffic you get if your site is on the first page of Google for a keyword as based off a Chikita statistic pictured below!



How To Find A Keyword’s Competition Using 4 Free Methods!

Every single keyword has a certain amount of competing pages for it. In other words, other websites, including yours are competing for the same keyword you are and if the competition is way too high, perusing the keyword may not be a smart move. So how do you find out?

Method #1: 

Summary of method: This method of finding profitable keywords involves doing a Google search and finding the exact competition of a keyword. If you can find a keyword with low competition (explained below), you have a potentially profitable option to work it!

Helps find low competition keywords.

How to use it:

Step 1: Go to Google and type in a keyword. For reference, I am using the keyword “diets for obese children”. Notice I put the keyword into quotes. Every time you want to find the EXACT competition of a keyword, put the keyword into quotes!

Step 2: Hit search, and go to LAST page of the search. This will show you the EXACT number of competing pages. If the number is less than 300, you have little competition and will be able to make a site that will have a GREAT chance to show up on the first page! Let’s use my example “diets for obese children”. Here is what I found:

  1. Radiance2017

    On your case study 3 page, you mentioned “PPC.” What does PPC stand for, and could someone explain what it means? It sounds important so I’d like to learn more. Is there a resource that teaches what it is and how it is used? Anything you can share will be appreciated! Thanks!


  2. Jonathan

    Thanks for the great information. I had no clue about competition. I used to just use the keywords with high search volume. Now I see how counterproductive this can be, without knowing the competition for it. Can you ever hit the first page using a keyword with high competition?

    I’ve also used Wealthy Affiliate and Jaaxy, both have the same owners, and these are phenomenal products!

    • Vitaliy

      It’s possible, but we’ve got to be specific on which keyword we’re talking about Jonathan. For the most competitive ones, you will have to have an overwhelming amount of content, social likes and comments and really a BIG website to rank up there for that.

  3. Hunter

    This really breaks down the fact of how finding the right keywords within your niche can really benefit you in the long run. A lot of newbies usually don’t understand the whole keyword concept and quite frankly there aren’t many people who just come out and be up and honest and show you not tell you how to do it. While reading this, I took a lot of notes on finding them because I understand how important it is to my success.

  4. Richard

    Great article here with great value as well. The attention to detail is first place and I will be coming back for more post. The art of finding niche keyword that will boost traffic should be fun and hence this video (link erased) which is also explains how to find a profitable niche keyword.

    Keep it up and good work!


    • Vitaliy

      Thanks Richard, but I had to erase the video (no links allowed), sorry. I agree that it should be fun to find a keyword and too many focus on the actual keyword and end up having boring titles. In fact, I think I’ll have to add more details about fun titles.

  5. Viv

    I have a doubt, you said that we should search for keywords with quotes on google.

    Now I tried that, lets say “best cameras for travel”, now one of my article shows on 1st page at bottom. Sounds good.

    Now lets do the same search without quotes and you will not find it till 5th page maybe.

    So what’s the use, people will be searching without quote, what to target in such case.

    Need help, I am struggling to get even 50 visitors a day.


    • Vitaliy

      The searches for keywords with quotes isn’t a measure of where your site is or for that matter how people will be searching, it’s a measure of EXACT competition and if you’re seeing your site on the first page for a keyword when quoted, it’s good, but you need to keep continuing the same process. This means you need to keep looking for low competition keywords using the same measurement tools I just explained about and writing more content, chasing more low competition keywords.

      If you keep doing this, your site will get noticed more and ranked more often on Google which is how you will get traffic. 50 visits a day shouldn’t be a problem once you do enough of this.

    Thanks for this Nice tips to Find out Keywords with Low competition .Any one please help me to get a Keyword with 100k volume and low competition

    • Vitaliy

      James, you’re looking at this the wrong way. I could find you hundreds of keywords with over 100k visitors and low competition but it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t know how to properly leverage this. It’s not just profitable keywords, it’s also:

      1. Your content.
      2. Your website authority.
      3. Your niche.

      And to have all of these down, you need to be involved in a topic (niche) that you can relate to, otherwise, trying to find highly searched keywords in niches you don’t understand won’t yield you any profit. I recommend getting training on this that will not only clarify this, but also show you exactly what to do so succeed.

      Hope this helps!

    Vitaliy, this an awesome website. I came across it when looking for content ideas for my own WA site. I’ve got some real problems with Jaaxy and the WA keyword tool.I came across the Longtail Pro kw tool and have a free trial going at the moment. I’ll find ” winners” using Jaaxy and plug them into Longtail Pro only to find that the authority and domain ranks are so high that there is no way that the given keyword could be ranked is even worth the effort of composing content. I’d like to hear your take on this subject

    • Vitaliy

      Hey Dave, I don’t think you’re using Jaaxy the correct way. I’ve had tons of success with that kw tool. I’ve never used Long Tail Pro, but I will likely be checking it out soon.

      What I can tell you is this:

      Through Jaaxy & the WA keyword tool (either, or) simply find the keywords which have less than 300 QSR. I’ve found tons of keywords throughout my searches. However, what is also true is that not every keyword you find will end up being on the first page even if you meet that criteria.

      I’ve found keywords that have very little competition and a lot of searches, made a blog post on it, but have yet to land on the first page. This is OK and it’s not a mistake on Jaaxy’s part, it’s because the competition, though small has very high authority meaning it will be difficult to get to the first page.
      I’m guessing this is what Long Tail Pro is telling you.

      However in spite of this happening, it does NOT mean you should abandon the keyword altogether. If it has a low QSR and it’s related to your website’s topic, absolutely write about it. It may not reach the first page, but it will add to your website’s authority meaning higher ranks in the future.

      Again, not every post/low competition keyword you find will hit the bulls eye, but don’t dwell on this. Simply keep searching for more keywords & writing up excellent content. Overtime, you may even see old posts rise up in the ranks which you though would never appear on the first page. I speak from experience as this does happen more often than you think 🙂

  8. Good advise on looking for the “long tail” keywords. I know when I got started I made the mistake of going after the highly competitive and more vague keywords. This is probably what frustrates new markers more than anything. You’re much better off starting in the “shallow end” of the pool so to speak.

    • Vitaliy

      You’re right Steve! Starting off from a not so competitive keyword and even one that may only get a 100 views a month is better than chasing some golden goose keyword. In fact doing the long tailed method, you are much more likely to rank for the golden goose keywords, if my analogy makes any sense 🙂
