This is an important lesson for anyone new to affiliate marketing, ensure that you do spend some quality time doing keyword research.
I started doing affiliate marketing about two years ago and to be honest I did very little research, I created a website based on what I would search for. I have had sales but after spending a bit of time doing some research I can see that I have probably lost out on a lot of sales.
So anyone looking to get started, make sure you have a decent list of keywords that you can target and ensure that they have less competition.
Im off now to do some proper keyword research on all of my sites
