We’re all looking for that low hanging fruit aren’t we? You know, those keywords that lack crazy competition. Well today I’m going to show you how to find them through a walk-through and then even provide you with a video to demonstrate.
Whether you’re a student of Niche60 already, going through my Free 7-Day Affiliate Marketing Training or it’s your first time here but you’re into building your online business this post should be something you put into action immediately.
Today I am talking about finding low competition keywords that you can rank for in search.
What Are The Point Of These Keywords?
Low competition usually means easier to rank for. But, I am going to show you some things that will make you determine their profitability as well! Easy to rank + make more money = awesome.
I think long term you want to do more with your website than just rank in search for low competition keywords. However, that doesn’t mean that finding low competition keywords shouldn’t be on your “to-do” list.
I think, especially early on on your website, low competition can be a great thing but you can also build an Instagram following, various other forms of social media or even an email list. It doesn’t matter if you’re building an affiliate marketing business or building an eCommerce website search rankings are still extremely beneficial.
For now our focus is easy to rank for keywords so you can grow your sales.
So Follow Along With Me Here
First make sure you’ve went through my keyword research training at some point so you understand the purpose of keywords and how to do initial keyword research.
Also understand that finding these keywords can be useful for anything from posts on your website, articles, guest posting or even for posts on additional sources like medium.com. Basically, with these keywords you can use them virtually anywhere that you want.
Next you need to have a special keyword tool. For this tutorial I am use Keyword Canine. You can get a monthly or even a yearly subscription. If you cannot afford a keyword tool right now you’ll need to save up as you make some money or save money by reducing your own personal expenditures(read about saving money for your business here).

OK, back to this tutorial.
Start Here: Open Up Keyword Canine In Your Browser
Once you’re logged in just follow my screen shots here.
A. Select “Easy Keywords”
Next, you’ll be at the Easy Keywords prompt.
A. Type any keywords you want here (start with something you know)
B. Put a minimum monthly searches number here. I like 5+
C. This only matters for Adwords and Adsense customers I use .02
D. Select between 20-100 results
E. Select the country you want investigate in
F. Click “find Keywords”
Next, the results will propagate below.
A. This is how many results showed up
B. If you want to make the search more exact repeat your keywords here to remove anything that doesn’t contain this term
C. This is the keyword being view
D. This is the 1st site ranked in Google for that term
E. This is how many site links are coming back to that site (the lower the easier the keyword is – generally)
F. This is the site trust flow (the low the easier the keyword competition is)
G. This is the citation flow (the lower the lower competition the keyword is – generally)
H. Approx. monthly searches that keyword phrase receives
I. Cost Per Click (approx.) I never use this column
So using the image above what we’re looking for are keywords ranking in search with lower site links, and low CF and TF (I like under 30 for both)
Next, you can more deeply analyze each keyword you’re interested in.
A. Select any keywords you want to analyze deeper
B. Click “Explore Keywords”
Then in a new window you’ll see this screen.
A. You’ll see your keywords here
B. Click “Explore Keywords” to reveal additional keywords based on the original search
C. Check any keywords under the DF column but clicking the little gray meter to the left
Here what you’re looking for are keywords that have a light orange, yellow or green on the meter.
The easiest keywords will be in green. It’s rare to find green keyword here but they are awesome when you do.
