So before I get into how to find profitable keyword with the best keyword competition tool let me give you a list of some great free keyword research tools that are available online.
How to find profitable keywords with Jaaxy.com
These steps were made with the consideration that the person using them have at least a Free Jaaxy account and has already took the time to build a website.
If you do not have a Jaaxy account you can still use these steps in much the same way with any other keyword competition tool because these are the steps that I use in general (just works better with Jaaxy).
Step 1 Find Keyword- Step one of how to find profitable keywords is to see what keywords your competitors are using.
When doing this you want to go to Google and type in the broad keyword that describes the content that you are creating.
This is just to get an idea of what keywords/Phrases to start off with in your search at Jaaxy because if you have Jaaxy than all the steps on how to find profitable keywords can be done within.
If you are not using Jaaxy and want to learn more about this step and the tools used for it click here and proceed to step 2 of that page called Research.
There are many tools to do this type of search with and most of them are free and work very well.
Step 2 Analyze Keyword- In this step of how to find profitable keywords we need to go to Jaaxy and sign in to our account so we can do some research into the keyword that we have picked for our content.
Now that we are signed in we need to enter the keyword/phrase that we want to start with and click search.
This will bring up a bunch of different variants to the keyword we entered.
On this screen we want to pay attention to the fields marked Monthly search, estimated traffic and QSR (Quoted Search Results).
Monthly search is the amount of times that keyword was searched in a month.
Estimated traffic is the estimated of amount of traffic you would get if you were ranked on the first page of the search engines.
QSR is basically the amount of competing websites for that keyword that are ranked for it.
To locate the a keyword that will be profitable for you and rank highly in the SERP’s than you are going to want your keyword to meet certain qualifications for these fields.
First look at monthly search and make sure that it has at least 500 searches.
Depending on the QSR rating you can go as low as 150 searches.
The lower the QSR is the lower the number can be for the monthly searches field.
Next look at Estimated Traffic.
In this field you want to see at least 50 searches with a low QSR rating and here the higher the QSR rating is the higher the number needs to be for estimated searches.
Now to QSR rating.
With this field you want to typically have a QSR rating of at least 300. As I said this is the number of competing pages for a particular keyword.
So if your keyword/phrase has a QSR of 7 than it is safe to say that if you are practicing good SEO strategy and you get ranked for that keyword than you would be ranked on the first page.
Step 3 Keyword Competition- Step 3 of how to find profitable keywords is to check keyword competition because you don’t want to use a low competition keyword that everyone and their brother are using.
To do this inside of Jaaxy we just have to click on the competition tab. Note that the keyword needs to be typed in the search bar before you click this tab.
Now just scroll through the results and look for a yes or no answer and see what position your competitor is ranked.
If you see none to few any competing sites than you have a green light to start building your content around the low competition keyword that you have just found using this keyword competition tool.
