Here is a free keyword tool that I want to recommend to you. It’s VERY powerful and is free to try. Through this tool I have discovered many profitable keywords (and successful projects. You can see my case studies above).
It’s similar to the Wealthy Affiliate keyword tool (designed by the same people), but offers way more in terms of benefits. I personally use it for my daily keyword searches and it’s very simple to use.
Let me give you an example: I have a website on kettlebell workouts which gets over 2,000-4,000 visitors a month. I was able to discover the keyword that led to this success through Jaaxy. This in addition to other high traffic sites I have made as a result from using this program.
This case study is not uncommon either. Finding very profitable keywords with little competition happens very often through this tool.
Although Jaaxy has paid options, you can try it for free, no credit card of personal info required. They give you 30 free searches. I’d strongly recommend at least trying the free version to see just how much it simplify online research and multiply your online success.
See the keyword tool in action. Type any keyword you wish and see the results for free:
Here is what you get from Jaaxy:
#1. Accurate traffic and competition numbers on all keyword searches (This is what the Wealthy Affiliate too also gives you):
- Monthly searches.
- How much traffic you’ll get if you reach the #1 spot.
- QSR (if it’s under 100, you have a GREAT chance to see your site on page 1).
- KQI (green means good), SEO Power (1-100 scale. 1 is worst, 100 is best).
- Domain search (let’s you find if .com, .net, .org’s are available).
- To Do (adds the keyword to a To do list).
Video tutorial on how to use it:
Here’s a screenshot of a keyword I searched “How to lose 10 pounds in 10 days”. The results were shocking:
What to make of these results:
Look at all keywords above which have green lights. This light means the QSR is less than 300 and if you write an article/post on one of the keywords above, you would have a great chance of landing on the first page and capitalizing on all that search traffic.
For those of you wondering, QSR means “Quoted search result” which is basically the keyword put into quotes on Google and shown the EXACT number of competing pages. If it’s less than 300, you’re good to go! The best QSR you can have is 0 which means NO competing pages.
Here are my rules of thumb when finding keywords:
- Make sure the keyword MAKES sense!
- Make sure the monthly searches is at least 50 and over.
- Make sure the QSR is less than 300. The less the better.
In the screenshot above, I have a TON of keywords which meet these requirements. So what exactly can I do with that? Here’s some examples:
Option A: I have a website on dieting and keywords like these could be PERFECT for writing up articles/posts on. For example, I could write about “how to lose 10 pounds in 10 days” and explain how a certain way of dieting can help you do that.
One thing I recommend is to always find keywords on topics you can RELATE to. This makes it much easier to write GREAT content about it as well as easier to connect with the reader. Better content = better rankings.
Option B: I could create a pay-per-click campaign (if you don’t know about this, you can just skip this part) where I just choose a lot of similar keywords above, and write an ad on it, link it to a page on my site and promote some sort of diet. The good news is that with Jaaxy, most of the research is done for you.
There are many more options, but these are 2 that come to my mind. You may have your own ideas which is fine too.
In addition, this tool also provides…
#2. Related keywords to your searches which will provide you with tons of new ideas to work with. Through the example above, there were many related keywords which I could have also used. In truth there are an endless amount of keyword ideas you could come up with through this tool.
#3. A brainstorm section which lists popular trending subjects from places like Google, Yahoo Buzz, Alexa, Amazon.com best sellers, & Twitter Trends. You can use this place to discover hot markets early and take advantage of them. For example, I used Google trends to discover the 17 day diet, a project which brought me 6 figures in a year (see case study). With this tool, I am able to analyze all the popular trends from 1 page without having to go to each place separately.
#4. A tool to analyze your competition called SERPS (search engine rankings). For example, you can do a keyword search and then click competition. This will show you the top 10 sites for that keyword, what keywords they are using which will be able to help give you more keyword ideas as well as decide if the keyword you chose is worth perusing.
#5. A site rank tool: This allows you enter a keyword and a URL (could be your blog/website) to see how well it’s ranking in the search engines. You can also do the same thing with any competitor sites. All you need is their URL and a keyword to find out how they’re ranking. You will then be able to use this information for your own blogs/websites and be able to measure where you’re at.
#6. Affiliate programs associated with your keyword searches: For any keyword you do a search for, this tool will automatically find affiliate programs from where you can sign up through, and promote them directly. You will also be provided information on how much commission % they will provide you and be able to make the best choice which pays the most. This beats having to do Google searches and figuring out which affiliate program to choose, let alone if there is one available.
#7: Training. Full tutorials (with video) on how to utilize all of Jaaxy’s benefits.
My recommendation: If you are completely new to internet marketing, I recommend doing 2 things:
- Get free training from Wealthy Affiliate’s Starter Membership. There’s NO CC or personal info required to join. Just your name/email. Learn more here.
- Use the free Jaaxy trial to get an idea of how it works.
