I'm not slacking, I'm working on a homerun post!

I am working on a killer post for next Monday where I am going to detail my best kept secret: a very simple technique to identify keywords with high demand and little or no competition.

Do you want to have keywords like this?

I've asked several A-list bloggers for their niche finding formula.  And guess what: they don't have time or don't think it's a good idea to share it.  I can't blame them.  Sharing this powerful information will render it practically ineffective and can cost them thousands of dollars in revenue due to the increased competition.

My blog reader Paul Montwill started the fire when he dared to ask me for such information.  I am sure he will be delighted when I post my technique next Monday.

Here are a couple of tidbits I was able to squeeze out of Aaron Wall and Neil Patel.  They are busy guys and I am glad they took the time to respond:

if he wants to become an SEO consultant then the easiest way to learn marketing is to start marketing one of his own sites… preferably covering a topic he is passionate about. Aaron Wall

The way I usually start is to look at terms that have a high CPC and
then from there I look for the least competitive ones and go after
them. I don't know of a quick way to do this because I myself don't
really do it, but there maybe some easy ways.  Neil Patel

What Neil mentions applies when you are planning to do SEO only. For PPC, you don't want to pay high bid prices.  In either case, what I personally look for is for terms that have high demand (search volume), good profit per sale, and low competition.  The profit per sale depends on the product and the affiliate commission you would get paid.

To measure the level of competition, I use two basic methods. If I am going to do PPC (which I usually do to start), I check the level of competing Adwords advertisers.  In the case of SEO, I check the SERPS (search engine result pages) to see how many sites are ranking organically for those terms.

How can you find those terms in the first place?

That is what I am going to answer in Monday's post.  I will include very detailed instructions and examples too.

 I am still debating whether this is a good idea.  Am I going to take food from my table by doing this?  Probably, but as I've committed myself to share, I guess I don't have an option.  I have to stick to my word.

Please leave some comments and let me know if this is something that you'll find useful.  Would I be giving away too much?  To share, or not to share: that is the question.
