Keyword Research Tips for Affiliate Marketing Sites in 2021

Today, I will show you some of the best keyword research tips to find revenue-generating articles for your affiliate site. Not every path to your website will lead to interaction commissions. Some pages will continue to generate hundreds of dollars, some tens of thousands of dollars, and some will not even produce a single commission. Now, the thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to open products carefully to get a commission. People will not click the link because it exists. You need to find articles that

a) search on Google, YouTube, or any other search engine you use; and
b) topics where it is natural to link to product recommendations.

So before we get into the tricks, it's important to understand the concept of "search purpose." The purpose of the search informs us of the purpose of the searcher's query and will determine whether you can physically recommend the products. For example, if one is looking for a “very good protein,” they may be in the market to buy a product but want to weigh the good and the bad, look at the different types, and evaluate variables such as price, quality, and so on.

Because of this, these searchers are more likely to click the corresponding link in the post and possibly make a purchase. While a topic like “what is protein powder” is very informative about nature. So based on the keyword only, we don’t know if the researcher is writing a research paper, looking at the world of ingredients, or wanting to know what type of protein will be purchased.

Simply put, this article would probably not produce any clicks on protein powder products because most people are not in the market to buy them. So with that in mind, we’ll talk about four types of related keywords and how they fit into a related marketing site. And this is a common comparison; comparative comparisons of product reviews; and T&A keywords. Let’s take a look at the value of each type and I’ll show you how to find tons of opportunities in almost any social media niche. Now, for the purpose of this study, let's say we're working on a site that promotes children's products. Okay, the first type of keyword is standard comparison.

These are the most common "[product] keywords". For example, "best pedestrians," "best carriers," "best baby bottles," etc. These types of keywords are very easy to recommend products because that's what the post is all about. The word “best” means that there are comparisons that need to be made.

Additionally, people searching for these "best [product] keywords" may be in the market to buy something soon. Why else would they want a product comparison?

So to find these keywords, you will need a keyword research tool. And obviously, I'm going to be using Ahrefs' Keywords Explorer. So I'll start by searching for a broad keyword like "baby." Next, I will go to the Phrase game report because we want to generate keyword ideas. And as we search for keywords to compare, I'll click on the Insert filter and type in "best," which will show us keywords that include the "best" words and our keyword "baby." And at the same time, we have a huge list of good comparison topics. Now, with more than 110,000 keyword ideas, we can narrow down the list into less competitive titles using the difficulty keyword filter.


So let's put high keyword weight points into something as low as 10. And there are some good topics here to consider. Now, it is important to know that you should not simply follow keywords in KD low schools. As you may have noticed, our set of low-weight articles reviews cheap products such as "baby baths," "lotions," and "wraps." So while this may help you to make money, it will be a very volume game. While more expensive products, such as "luxury car seats," will often be more competitive. But there is a way to actually get keywords that point to high ticket items while low competition. And these are articles addressed to a specific person or need. And the standard format for these keywords will be "[user's] advanced brand name." For example, "the best car seat for a small car" or "the best carrier for a newborn baby."

So let's go back to Keywords Explorer and this time, I'll add a few high-priced items like "seat car," "stroller," and "crib." Also, I'm going to go to the sentence matching report. And finally, I'll press Apply Filter and type in "best," "for." Now, as the "All Names" tab has been selected, it will show us keywords that include one of our top ticket products, and both of our names are included.

And now you will see keywords like "the best flexible car seat for small cars," "the best five-year car seat," and so on. Now, the 28th KD isn’t exactly “low”. But when you click the SERP button, you'll see that some of the pages are specifically targeted at "small car changing seats." And in addition to having a low-level website authority and a few targeted domains, they still offer some pages with a general authority. So this is probably the best key opportunity for our children's site. Well, the next type of keyword is product comparison. These are keywords when a searcher wants to compare the differences between two branded products.

For example, that might be "beats studio wireless vs bose qc35." These types of keywords usually have a low search demand, but they change very well because the researcher may have reduced their purchase decision to a few products. An easy way to find these keywords is to create your own product list and add it to your keyword research tool. So I think if I wanted to get a comparison of pedestrians, I would want "bugaboo," "city select," and "Appu baby." Next, I will go to the Match Matching Report. Also, I'll go to the search box that includes, and this time, I'll type "vs.," as we want to compare.

So I will attach 10 of them to Keywords Explorer and start searching. And let’s go straight to the Phrase game report and then we’ll hit the included filter, but this time we’ll want to “update” with an asterisk, which will act as a wild card. And now we know exactly what products we want to review, and some models now have keyword metrics. So at this point, you should have enough articles here it is easy to include product recommendations. Now, the last type of keyword will probably not contribute directly to revenue, but it serves an important purpose. And these are the key names of T&A, representing Trust and Authority. In order to rate your pages, you need to have some kind of page-level and/or website authority.

That is, you need backlinks. Unfortunately, all of the keywords we have discussed so far are commercial, making it difficult to find links to these pages. I mean, would you like to link to a 10 or 1 kitchen knife post on how to sharpen a kitchen knife? Perhaps the last one, of course, as it is non-commercial and offers a number of additional purposes to your audience. So creating non-commercial content for the purpose of educating and informing your visitors is helpful in two ways.

# 1. Build trust with your audience; and

# 2. Builds authority through links.

And that's where the T&A articles work. The purpose of these articles is to provide useful information for your audience and a linking blogger service. So to find these keywords, let's look at a few seeds related to our child's website. So I'm going to type "parenting," "toddler," and "newborn." Next, I will go to the questionnaire because all of these will be informative topics. Finally, I will set a minimum keyword Difficultyfilter in the top 40 like. And the reason I put KD so high is that Ahrefs' Keyword Difficulty metric is based on different websites linking to the top 10 pages.

And now we have a list of topics where we know that the top 10 pages have a lot of links to them. You just need to decide if the articles will help your target audience, look at the SERP, and analyze other backlink profiles for top pages. Now, even if visitors to these pages may not be ready to buy right away, you can link within the relevant revenue pages, which should provide your monetized posts to raise rates.

And we have a complete video on this SEO strategy, called "the middleman method," so I'll link that to the description. So now, you should be able to find more than enough articles to fill out the content calendar for your affiliate site. But before I do that, I strongly recommend our full article on keyword research where you will learn how to evaluate the complexity of a position and select topics according to the strength of the traffic. What two things should you do in each of the topics you focus on? Now, if you enjoyed this article, then be sure to share some easily accessible SEO and marketing tips. I'll see you next time.
