Profitable Amazon Product Selection or Niche Selection

  • Do People Buy The Product Instantly? [Best Things To Ask Yourself and Your Friends]
  • Select Product That Doesn’t Require Hours of Research Before Buying [Best Things To Ask Yourself and Your Friends]
  • Product Average Review must be 50+. Otherwise, it shows people buy such product in a very less amount. It would result in less profit for ours.
  • Product price should be $50-500. This range is profitable because the amount of commission for $50 is $3-4 that is minimum, and the commission amount for $500 is $30-40 that is a good price. Product price of above $500 is not suitable because people buy less product from the online source in this price range. Price Range Should be $50-500. It is appropriate for the beginners only. If you have the budget of 10-20,000 for a single site, then you can think beyond this range. But it would be risky for the newbies.

    An essential point is Amazon saves all the cookies only for 24 hours. It means, if any visitor buys any products within 24 hours then you will get the commission otherwise you won’t. So, select the product which people buy quickly without wasting time. For example Haunting Binocular, Pull Up Bar, Baby Toy Stand etc.

  • Which niche should you work? Suggestion for the beginners

Please work with the following categories like

* Home, Garden & Tools  

* Beauty, Health & Grocery  

* Toys, Kids & Baby  

* Sports & Outdoors

In these categories, all the products are evergreen, no burden of commission and conversion rate is higher. Other categories are also workable, but these are friendly for the newbies. Please watch out all category products including sub-categories From Here.

Main Keyword, Product Keyword, Accessories Keyword and Vertical Keyword selection (The following criteria are mandatory for selecting Main Keyword)

 

 

i. Monthly Local  Search Volume:  Keep the monthly search volume in the range of 1000-5000. It is profitable to compete with less search volume keywords. Otherwise, the budget should be higher. To check the monthly search volume, please use the Google Keyword Tool as following:

See, My keyword “best pull up bar” contains the search volume of 1600 monthly. It fulfills our criteria.

Evergreen search volume

 

 

ii.  Seasonality/Ever Green: This term indicates the equal sales all over the year. A good average amount of sales each month. We can see the search volume is evergreen. Please search this keyword “skiing trip” and you will find a result like the following image:

Seasonal Keywords keyword research guide

 

Look at the above picture, some months got more search and some months got less search. It should be better idea having the average sale all over the year equally for continuous passive income. So it would not be a good decision to work with such product.

iii.  Buyer Keywords: One of the best ways to do this is to target “buyer keywords” or keywords that show buyer intent. i.e. that someone is in the phase of being ready to buy and aren’t just browsing or vaguely interested.

Some Best Buying Keyword Pattern

  • Keyword Structure For Better Conversion
    • Best/Top Rated + Product Name
    • Cheap + Product Name
    • Quality + Product Name
    • Vs/Or/Compared to Product 1 / Product 2
    • Product Name + For Sale
    • Product Name + Review/Reviews
    • Bargain + Product
    • Best + Product Name + Online
    • Best + Product Name + Review
    • Best + Product Name + Year
    • Buy + Product Name
    • Where can I buy + product name
    • Product Name + Coupon

 

iv. Profitability: I have already discussed it in point 1.

v. Page Authority (PA) – Multiple results have less than 30, minimum 2 (Once you get over 40 – gets pretty competitive)

vi. Juice Page Links – Multiple results with less than 30

To tell about Juice Page Links in a single line:

The main way of acquiring Page Rank is through the acquisition of links from other websites with Page Rank to share. This is where the concept of Link Juice comes from. Link Juice provides a way of illustrating and conceptualizing how Page Rank flows between pages and websites. Read Details Juice Page Links 01 ও Juice Page Links 02 

 

vii. Weak sites in the top 10 (forums, other niche sites or Affiliate Sites, Q&A sites, Article Directories, YouTube Videos, Yahoo Answers, ezinearticles.com,  Squidoo pages and other user-generated content, etc.)

Hope, I need not talk about Weak Sites as I have mentioned in brackets.

 

viii. The title of Page – Does it include the keywords?

When you finalize a keyword, please observe how many sites have the same keyword in titles. Fewer sites, more profits due to less competition. But if more than three sites have same titles then it would be negative for us to compete.

 

ix. Nice to see Newer Sites: the number of sites in the top 10 results less than one-year-old.

 

It is a positive sign of having site ranking of below one year. Because, if they can, we can as well. So look for one site among ten sites that have ranked below one year.

 

x. Domain Authority (DA). Domain authority is a measure of the power of a domain name and is one of many search engine ranking factors. Domain authority is based on three factors: Age, Popularity, and Size. SEO gurus Moz can be credited with the metric known as DA or domain authorityKnow Details. There should be two sites in top 10. DA should be under 30.

 

xi. Keyword Competitiveness (KC): Keyword competition is the measure of how difficult it will be to rank for a particular keyword. The competition for a keyword can vary depending on how popular the keyword is and industry competitionThe Ultimate Guide to Keyword Competition

My suggestion is to keep under 30. Search about LTP.

  • Pages with exact match keyword: 1
  • Pages below PA 30: 2
  • Pages below 30 juice links: 9
  • Pages below site age of 1 year or less: 1

 Try Yourself

Come up with five keywords that meet the following criteria:

  • 1,500+ monthly searches.
  • $100+ products available
  • At least two results on the first page don’t have exact keyword in the title.
  • At least two results on the first page with PA < 30.
  • At least two results on the first page with Juice Page Links < 30.
  • At least two other niche sites or weak sites on page 1
  • (Optional) KC < 30 according to Long Tail Platinum.
  • Choose your main keyword.
  • Choose 10 secondary keywords.

Please let me know your selected keywords. I will guide you personally to work with your niches. You have some selected keywords. What will do now?

 Product, Accessories, and Vertical Keyword Selection

 

  • It is the very easy process to select product key. For your homepage, please make a list of 10 or 20 products from Amazon. Of course, select the products those have positive feedback and good price range. Please check an example here: Best Hunting Binocular.  You need not think about the search volume in this case.
  • Accessories Keyword selection is same as the Product Keyword. You have to keep in mind the same criteria as product keyword while selection. Check Example: Best Electric Pressure Cooker Accessories
  • Vertical Keyword selection is different than other two discussed above. For example, your product is “Smoothie Blender”. In this case, your vertical keyword should be “Ninja Master Prep Review” having the search volume of 260. We would select this keyword if it searched volume about 10.

Just keep in mind this pattern while selection: Best + Product Type or Product Name + Review, Keyword To Include

 

Authority Site Keyword Research

Building Authority site there was some difference in authority site keyword research. I am mentioning the main points below:

  1. You should have at least 100 Keywords to start an authority site
  2. Strongly you have to understand your competitor’s keyword research and content strategies.
  3. Take The Preparation For 1-2 years at least.
  4. You Need a detail Content Strategy to incorporate different categories, types of content, linkable assets, and social content.
  5. Use 2 Keywords Toll at Least. My suggestion LTP and SEM Rush. Read The Review of LTP and SEM Rush.

  11. Page Links

  12. Weak Site

  • Make sure your sites have pages titles having the exact keyword that you have planned.
  • Remember, there are a lot of root domains that are really bad.
  • You have to watch out the Weak Sites Ranking like yahoo answers, forums, different niche sites, Squidoo pages, etc.
  • Preferable PageRank is 1 or 0 and preferably low links of juice page is less than equal 30.
  • At least three results should have less than ten juice pages in top 10.
  • At least two pages should have page authority below 30 page in top 10.
  • You should skip when top 10 sites have tremendous e-commerce stores like Amazon, BestBuy, Walmart, etc. It does not matter of worry because Google will look after e-commerce ranking for e-commerce related keywords.
  • You also have to informative sites like different Squidoo pages, how, etc. Look for informative keyword based sites and also the Adsense based sites for better performance and a better amount of sale.
